Re: LED rear light

I was gonna check mine today to see if it has a white light shining down like the std light but I forgot... It passed an MOT today with an LED light fitted so If thats what your worried about... I didn't & it wasn't checked anyway... Maybe Popkat can shed some light on if it's requied or not......

Re: LED rear light

That is a job I need to do sometime :lol: I intend to use 2 LED bulbs like these below. There are plenty for sale on Ebay. I think on the Firestorm you can fit these above the number plate :?: LED numberplate bulbs.jpg Photo courtesy of this seller: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/362970984150?_trkparms=...

Re: Strange coolant leakage

The leak could be from the water pump mechanical seal. However you really need to locate where it's coming from as it could just be one of the hose joints as your mechanic thought. Some of the Firestorms/Superhawks have a hose from the outlet spout on the water pump mechanical seal housing which tuc...

Re: Penske shock

£350 to £400 is about the right ball park for a fully adjustable shock, without the modern high/low speed compression. the spring is £80 and easy enough to fit if you have some ratchet straps to compress the spring I agree with Al on the price :thumbup: Sales are a bit up and down at the moment wit...

Not on my Sky Q guide, Chris, just the highlights around 8pm. Tony, you best kick your Sky Q into touch then :lol: All joking aside, may be Sky know different.

Re: Silly bellly pan

The question is though, do you think it's there to stop the possibility of small stones, chippings etc from being thrown up by the front tyre onto the oil filter :?: Probably not much of a chance of hole being created in the oil filter if you've not using it, as plenty of you (including me at times)...

Re: what have you done to your

Thanks Chris. The garage WAS looking lovely and clean, but you should have seen the state of it after a full day of tinkering! I'm looking forward to getting the bike muddy again [emoji3] You're right, perhaps we need a code word for l*be just in case Lloydie gets a little too excited [emoji38] :lo...
