Re: Op Storm IV Yorkshire 18-20 may 2018

is anyone taking any puncture repair packs/kits ? the reason I mention it is over the last few rides out I've personally had 2 punctures and 2 of my mates have had similar on our Sunday morning jaunts, so not sure if it's just bad luck or what but it would be worth considering at least someone as a ...

Re: my Aprilia Superleggera project

Alistair is right while there is a saving with carbon wheels it's not as great a saving as you may expect the OZ wheels are pretty light to start with so apart from not been able to afford £2K ++ it's not particularly money well spent, I think I'll cut down on the pies instead 😁 How much weight have...

Very tidy. Only another 20 kg to go.... :lol: Its a case of diminishing returns from this point first few kgs are easy GRP bodywork lithium battery give big savings but then it's little bits and bobs a few grams here and there I may have to have a limb amputated to make any further worthwhile savin...

Re: my Aprilia Superleggera project

well the end of the project is in sight, petrol added and after a bit of stopping and starting bike fired up and seems to be running fine, it's always a bit of a tense moment firing something up after stripping it down and adding quite a few new parts but the signs are positive and hopefully a test ...

Re: my Aprilia Superleggera project

Is the grease you're using high melting point? The linkages (especially if you're running a full underbelly fairing lower) get quite warm. Although the grease being washed out with a jet washer is equally important... it's some high spec grease used on trains, suitable for use in salt water so shou...

Re: Quickshifter arrived

It can be done, but the engineering (mostly time and money) required IMO make it a still birth. Best to sell the SP and get a bike so-equipped if you really want an auto-blipper. Of course, the satisfaction of getting such a system up and running (on your SP) would be priceless but what a task! the...
