Logs are now 'green' if you burn them in an approved log burner

They are trying to implement that but for existing log burners/fires, dry wood is OK anyway. Its the damp stuff that spits, farts and smokes a lot.

At home we had an open fire and some wood - I think it was ash used to spit like mad, you would be watching some mothers do ave em and suddenly a red hot meteorite would come flying at you.
Thanks to constant colds as a kid I am now a perfect shot at living room distance from throwing the tissues into the fire from the sofa.

To the people who have and like them, what was the average cost..?


With anti scratch coating and anti glare about 200 quid, or you can bluetac a pair of binoculars to your face for 45 quid., although its a bit dodgy knowing exactly when to apply your brakes.  :eek

Metzeler's site shows quite a different tread pattern from front to rear version of Roadtec 01.
And they list the 110/70 54H. No ZR in this size...

Varifocals work a treat for me in general, I have had them for 24 years and would not go back to single vision glasses.


They do take a bit of getting used to especially walking down stairs, you end up looking down at the stairs through the long distance part and all is blurry, also looking up to do things like changing a light bulb you end up looking through the long distance part (top of lenses)


Motorcycle maintenance is almost impossible with them on, but in the rest of life they are great.


I have had a pair varifocal made up for computer and other close work the bottom/reading part are set for 2.5 feet so are great for motorcycle maintenance and computer stuff but they don't focus out quite far enough to be perfectly clear at the long distance for some reason, I have driven the car in them before by mistake but they are not quite right, although they are 100% better that not having my glasses on at all (Short sighted since childhood)


When I first thought that I needed glasses I visited Optivision the optician said 'are you positive you need them'  come outside he said and he pointed up into the sky and said 'what is that' I said its the sun, he responded how much further do you want to fucking see.  :lol

Iv'e worn varifocal glasses for the last four years & i also wear multifocal contact lenses for work & for me they both work a treat. Can wear either riding bike no problem. There is another alternative, a friend of mine has just had lens replacement surgery, £3000 per eye & he has the vision back he had in his twenty's.

Trouble is he was blind when he was twenty

As above, try the most inexpensive way first, it may be all that it needs.


I've always used this gear, in fact i'm using it right now in my tank, and is the only one i've ever tried that i notice a difference after a few days.
During winter my bike probably doesn't get up to a decent running temperature when it's very cold as my commute isn't very far so it appreciates a system clean up at least once a year.


Used to be £15 a bottle in Halfords but they've stopped selling it so at least now it's a sensible price online.

Damn! That was the one I have used before with great success, I was trying to find on eBay, but failed., But now I have the link, I had forgotten the name /make of it.

140    on the clock did not have Sat Nav on bike so unsure of accurate speed.


Not bad for a C90! Top effort!

Took me about an hour and a half to climb back up Beachyhead afterwards but it was worth it. :eek Another 100 foot and I reckon I could have a ton fifty. :lol
The LS2 FF393 Convert Helmets are good, it just scratched the screen a bit but I think it will polish out. :rolleyes

As BB said it depends on the local authorities. Some areas you are not allowed to burn ordinary household coal but it has to be smokeless, not sure about logs.
We retained one open fireplace in my house in our front sitting room (Posh people call it a lounge) the open fire makes a real focal point and creates a nice warm atmosphere.

It may be worth running it for a while on premium fuel, and/or trying a fuel additive carb/ injector cleaner, Forte and Marvel Mystery Oil get good reviews. It might not work but it beats stripping the carbs if you can avoid it, Good luck.


 :agree
Get some carb/injector cleaner additive for petrol engines and give the fuel tank a double dose of the stuff, if it says add 50ml per 5Ltrs shove in 100ml. There is a very good chance that it will clear it out, if it does not do it again with the next petrol fill up as the stuff sometimes take a while to remove built up varnish in carbs.


If it does not do it it will have only cost you the price of the additive if it does do it you have been saved a lot of hassle and you have still been riding your Yammy.
Win win if it works, if it does not work the rest of the fuel system will have had a spring clean fuel pump and lines.
What you describe would indicate a partially blocked jet or jets, especially as you ride through the flat spot and the bike surges forward again on to full boil, so it not an blocked air filter, as it would get worse not better as you continued to full throttle the same can be said for a fuel filter,  as it runs fine at low and high revs it can only really be a partially blocked jet.
I could just be just one carb that is messing about, a  flat spot at those revs is much the same as a bike only running on three cylinders, and that effectively dead cylinder is putting a brake or load on the other three, so in real terms your are running pretty much on half power as you go through that flat spot, no wonder it feels like it takes off once past that flat spot.

Wynns is a reputable make and also the link above is a good price, sending off for a bottle myself just to run through my system.

Do you have a rear caliper? Can see a bracket but can't see a caliper


Hi Kam,
If he does not have one I do, I will post a picture of it below .
I changed it out for a 1000cc Fazer Blue Spot Caliper to match the front ones.
I cleaned and greased the pistons with red rubber grease before it went into the shed, pistons in very good condition complete with pins and retaining springs.
The last picture is my FZS 600 2003, the bike it came off.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Re: sump plug cock up.
« on: 15 May 2018, 08:22:49 AM »
I have now received the tap, £ 7 from EBay a tapir and plug tap so not bad.The taper tap fitted straight in and turned easily no problem, the original sump bolt with copper washer is now been fitted and all seems  ok no leak, so hopefully I might have got away with it.


Just go easy when tightening it, remember you are only tightening up on 70% thread, it would be easy to pull the thread in cast alloy. Great you have it sorted as it would be shame to have the bike in dry dock with this weather.

General / Re: Changes to the MOT
« on: 15 May 2018, 12:06:24 AM »
Same as that, I tholught it was up to a month before the old MOT expire so you get a new MOT for 13 months.


If you car has been on a SORN statement and the MOT had run out during that SORN how are you meant to get an MOT?
Apart from a low loader or large trailer, or could you tow it with another car.

yeah, lots of bad drivers but the thread is called Today's "What Gets My Goat"

emphasis on "Todays"

fazersharp.......its the ale.

a road with two lanes on each side, the ambo passes standing traffic on the opposite carriageway like you'll have seen loads of times. Oncoming van pulls over only for a goon behind the van to overtake and plays chicken with ambo

the other carriageway has a broken down lorry in lane 2 with goons sat up his arse for ages

all goons in the story are women

THE END :lol


Mad forgot his meds again this morning
