I just use Halfords OAT antifreeze, I buy the 5 litre concentrate and use for the bike and cars.

Glad to see you have recovered alright and are back up and biking, similiar but not as bad happened to me 5 years ago. Chest infection, ambulance and oxygen, four days in hospital, took about a month before I felt normal again, having asthma as well didn't help much either.,  sometimes life just truly sucks.

Just fitted a H4 Philips Extreme to my MT09, vast improvement.
Still got to fit a pair of Chinese Cree knock offs that I took off my FZ1s when I sold it,  got to make up some stainless brackets first. As others have said these make a world of difference, just one tip if you fit some, be careful how you angle them as you will blind everyone if they are angled to high.

i just lick my fingers and dab the downpipes, spraying water is the safest option though
i do it quickly and i have asbestos hands (only fairys and millennials use moisturiser lol)

I have been insulted many times but implying I am a millennial is really hurtful :'(

Your last sentence answers your question, you cannot run a motorcycle  business when all your customers want is a pot of tea and a chat, they need to spend money on parts etc so you can make an operatjng profit.

If they want it, let them have it. Its only metal (however much you like it) and can be replaced. No point in putting yourself in harms way for a bike.

I do like the exploding seat idea above though. Something that can be operated from a distance once they think that they have got away with it.

Not too big an explosion though, just enough to rip their balls off and totally shred their rectum.

Yeah, the floor tiles are from Costco, like you say they make garage seem a lot warmer and no more cold feet. Had mine down for over 10 years now and they need replacing. General wear and tear plus wifes pet rabbits like to chew them for some strange reason.

Took a run up to Pateley Bridge and then onto Masham,
When I got back replaced the original crap headlight bulb with a Philips Extreme, looks a lot better.

Put peanut butter down in my shed as they were eating the sack of bird food. Nothing. Mind you, I haven't had any more bird food taken either. I reckon they've cleared off. Last seen heading west. Some talk about a garage with cosy classic car  :lol

How about a small shower / toiletries bag?  The type you stick your soap, razor etc when you go on holiday. Usually at least water resistant and cheap.

After 5 years NCB you are supposedly getting a 65% discount , at 9 years supposedly 70% / 75%. After 50 years you might 76% !
Protecting your NCB is a nice little money earner for insurance companies,  you are paying to insure your insurance doesn't go up in theory.
The insurabce companies cannot lose.

« on: 02 April 2018, 02:00:05 PM »
I have never found putting it on the centre stand completely smooth and effortlessly. I have the correct technique, my stand is good but I just don't think the stand is perfectly designed or in the optimum position, look at some of the massive gold wing type bikes and how easy they look (at least to me) to put on the centre stand.   

why mention goldwings - you reminded me of these

Never seen them before, for a disabled biker they could be a lot better than going the trike route.

Its amazing how a word or gesture can mean totally different things in different parts of the world. Used to work with quite a few Americans and one in particular always used to say after a break it was time to get off our " fannies"  and get back to work. We had to explain to him in that whilst in America the word might mean your  bottom, here in the UK it meant vagina and that he should be careful where he says it and in what company.

I read and understood what he said in his first post but still say remove it, after 12 years it is getting ready to fail.
I had my gen1 for six years and only once in that time did it let me down, the Meta alarm failed with no warning and I had to call out the AA, the AA guy said what PieEater posted, the sealed internal battery had given up the ghost.

I appreciate that English is probably not your first language but do you not realise what " grooming " means?
It is abhorrent for it to happen to any girl, no matter her skin colour or race.

Understood it as courting - so you can disregard my comment on that, thanks for pointing it out.
This dictionary gives two definitions, the latter one is about pedophiles?!?

Thats why I pointed it out, was pretty sure you did not realise what the word means nowadays.

To be honest after 12 years you would be better off ripping it out, you are lucky it has lasted that long with no problems.

The greatest inequality is not between genders, but between classes. But you can't complain about that AND live in a capitalist country. It's like complaining about the heat in Africa.

Don't see any problems with grooming "white girls".

Success :) , tried the method in the link Val posted, was fairly easy and I had it done in 15 minutes. Adjusted the tab and added a couple of washers and now the seat goes on and comes off easy.

Where I work there are two women who both work in the office, there are 28 men doing the manual work.
In the female toilet there are four washbasins and four traps, in the mens two washbasins and two traps, now that is gender inequality!

Thanks Dude and Val, have tried both those methods with no success. When I get home from work tomorrow I am going to try the method that is shown in the link that Val posted, will be a pain in the arse but once I get seat off I can adjust the mechanism, cure seems to be a cross between adding a washer to stop it flexing as much and bending the tab so that it latches correctly.
