As you mention that, i had 2 different Euro drivers give way to me this week, one heading towards me and the other in front of me, but they both never indicated and pulled over for a few seconds on the "right" side of their road.
So the one i was following looked like he was parking to the right, but wasn't, and the one aiming towards me totally crossed my path.
Once past, both of them then rejoined the road.

I go to France several times a year with the car and occasionally the bike (and have a bike I keep there) and I have lost count of the number of times, after getting back toe the UK, I wake up in the morning and drive off up my road on the wrong side. I usually realise within a couple of seconds but can see how people forget for longer.

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

You appear to have thought about it in slightly more graphic detail than what was actually necessary.  :lol

I think an Ejector seat would work well too, ideally set off as they enter a bridge (loads of those around London) - plus no explosion, so you wont have to scrub off remnants of balls and rectum from your Head (motors head) !!

I wouldn't want the bike back after its been stolen so no need to worry about scraping body parts off the remains of the bike. It might prevent the bike being nabbed in the first place though.

That said, how many times in the past, when airbags were a new idea, did we hear about airbags going off accidentally. I am not sure I would want to ride a bike with the "explosive seat" but it is something we could fit once the bike is in the garage and locked away for the night.

They're pointless. Audi and BMW drivers never use indicators  :rolleyes

I have just had a recall notice for my Audi. Apparently, its because someone made the mistake of fitting the stalk so they have to remove the stalk now.

I did wonder why my Audi seemed to be one of the few with working indicators.

hi guys my bike is firing only on two cyclinders 1 and 2 and the other two are only warm...... i have noticed my coils are set 1-2 3-4 so first coil is firing 1-2 and second coil is firing 3-4 i guess this is not right and that is why its only firing on two cylinders....... should i re-seat leads to 1-4 2-3???????

okay so i change plugs with some old ones i had left over Not any better also swapped coils 2-3 over no diference whats next to check................................. did check the carb floats bowls and drained loads of crap from bowl 3 but four was okay......

There is only one coil that supplies #2 & #3. I assume you mean you switched the plug leads around. If the problem is still there having done that the problem is fuel related.

So you have drained the float bowls but have you taken the carbs out and cleaned the jets?

My money is on a blocked jet now.

2&3 use the same coil.
If #2 is OK then I would look at the lead to #3 and the cap assuming you have changed the plugs and you are sure you are getting enough fuel through to that cylinder.

It could be the end of the Veggie Bacon and other crap we see in the UK if we follow the French on this.

Where will it end though?

No more veggie sausages or "steaks". No more veggie burgers either.
I guess the nut cutlet will have to go too as it could be confused with a lamb cutlet :pokefun

The 600 and 1000 are different shapes.

Have a look on one of the French (or other) expat forums as there are always people looking for EU lights for their British spec bikes they have taken over to France etc

Rusty around the top or the bottom?

If its the top, check the crap flap position and the drain holes in the head.
If its the bottom, you have a problem!

Petrol floats on water so I would suggest contaminated water.

« on: 20 April 2018, 01:32:41 PM »
I thought it fired 1-2-4-3... but then perhaps I have the cams spinning the wrong way inside my head?! (the cams spin in the same direction as the wheels no? or the other way).

1-2-4-3 or 1-3-4-2 doesn't make much difference really. the important part id that 1 & 4 are on the same coil and 2 & 3 are on the same coil.

2001 Boxeye?
If so, do the dual headlight mod if it hasn't been done already.

If I remember correctly. The firing order is 1-3-4-2 and the coil on the left should connect to #1 & #4 with the coil on the right to #2 & #3

My son sold his moped last week and the sale/transfer site is only available 7 till 7. The v5 will only take a couple of days to come through though so crack on and use the bike then tax it when you get the v5.
If the seller goes online to do the "sale" then you can go online to tax it the same day they "sell" the bike.

is it when braking? If so could be just the pads sliding in the calipers.
If not, it does sound like head bearings are not as good as you think
