Re: Front brake discs.

Clean the buttons first.
You can use a nut and bolt through each one to make sure they move freely.
A rawlbolt or other fixing is also good.
If you need new discs check out which other bikes they're fitted to, some are cheaper than storm ones, simply because the other bike was more popular.

Those recorders are tricky things, I find it hard to get a consistent G as I blow too hard.

Re: Anyone at bsb tomorrow?

It'll be interesting to see how they cope with the conditions over the weekend, I'm taking the 4 by 4 due to the sea of mud. Decided not to camp over the weekend this year so only going on Sunday. I appear to have blagged a paddock pass, though.... Wife went to school with one of Alex Olsens sponsor...

Re: Something new, balancing carbs?

With old style Amals you can hear them snap shut and tune to shut together, by ear. Easier with two cylinders than triples or fours!
Can't do that with cv carbs, so a vac guage is best.

Re: The Lottery

Depends on how big the safe is. Some of them cost thousands...... Just the ticket. My wife was concerned some years back when I made the innocent observation that my credit card limit had just been increased and was now more than the cost of a new Ducati. Next time I checked it has been reduced to h...

You picked the wrong time of the year to sell, but Glws.
Pic and mileage might help.

Re: Newbie from Exeter

You know sometimes someone's selling a bike that's been taken apart but they swear it's all there and was running perfectly before they took it apart? I've never understood how that might come to be. Until now... It'll be fine. I've always found it easier to just remove a head rather than take the w...
