VNA shouldn't along for a week he's gone on holiday. So fill your boots boy's NO POLITICAL CLAP TRAP FOR A WEEK

Holiday?? Didn't think the Scottish could afford them?
 I bet he's gone to Brussels to argue his Brexit points for the good of us all 🤣
hmm - holiday you say, funny that, just as the labour party conference has started

Thought I would resurrect this thread - partly I don't know where else to post this.I have been trying to learn a little Spanish and came across this I instantly fell in love and then get slapped in the face with a cold wet cod in the end just as I was longing to see her again.

scratchings round here. i am guessing everone knows that wrapping them in newspapers was considered unhygienic and so stopped  -probably by the eu who don't eat fish and chips. so now we have to cut down trees grown in the eu no doubt just to make chip paper.i remember once back in those days when you would also sell your stuff in the adds at the back. 6 moths after my car was sold i got a call from someone reading the paper that their chips came in.Anyway i dont like em wrapped cause it makes em soggy       
im sure vna will be along shortly to tell me my cod is alt right and i get the soggy chips i deserve.

New PR3 on the front.
£84 from Oponeo and £20 to fit.
Think it's the first time i can ever remember me having the same brand of tyres on front and rear in over 30 years of riding, i have a PR4 on the rear, so close enough.  :lol
They are very hairy aren't they. Week end = scrubbing in =  :) :) :)


Nah, it's pissing down here.......i'm sure you'll understand.  :lol
:thumbup :D

I've asked my bike mechanic/salesman friend about this.

He says the white marks are applied on the assembly line in order to indicate that the parts have been correctly fitted. The guy further down the line then knows that it's OK to fit subsequent parts. A kind of quality control I guess.
I dont have them on my bobbins but I have blue marks on the disk Alen bolts - perhaps a dab of the same threadlock that prevents people from removing them when they need to

Heres one https://www.sthelensstar.co.uk/news/15167265.Owner_of_car_with_no_licence_plate_told_police__it_would_spoil_the_look_/I think its a fad among petrol heads to paint the whole grill area black which then makes it look massive - and IMO crap.Another one I am seeing is 80% of transit type vans with black cloth on the bonnet.Both of these "mods" are a good sign that the driver will be driving like a twat.

Gets my goat just recently is I am seeing more than you would expect, cars without a number plate on the front but it is sitting in the window. Now, I am pretty sure it is intentional and a permanent mod (until mot time) because the cars that do it all seem to be spammed up, overly dark windows aftermarket LEDs - audi or VW with the badge painted black -thats another gets my goat.
Anyone else noticed this.

Who is that mysterious figure in black with the pointy shoes seen upper left. Could he be connected with the equally mysterious looking fazer (intentionally spelt with a lower case "f" as it is not worthy of the correct F )  IMO

Haha, the mystery of the figure in black is easily solved, that's my brother. He rides a 2007 Bandit, standard if not for an aftermarket exhaust which he uses to belittle me in every tunnel we ride through.
Belittle you - until you come out of the tunnel into the daylight and everyone can see its a Bandit.

Out of all the noises reported on this forum over many years, grinding, buzing,rumbling,knocking, whirring, rattling, have to say that "whizzing" is a new one.

I think the baby on board is in case of an accident and the baby is flung somewhere in or out the car and the services know -- something like that is the thinking.

and another thing , why dont horse riders when on the road , clear up the mess left behind ?......like dog owners should.......
Yes it should be law that if you take a horse on the road it should wear a horse nappy - looks like a nose bag but fits on the other end. On a bike you come round a bend and hit that stuff you are in the sh1t literally. If I see it when I am out and on a straight bit I am always extra vigilant at the upcoming bends. The joys of riding in the Shires of middle earth.

I saw a chap by the road with an AA van and he was still there 30 mins later when I came back so I pulled over to see if I could help and the AA chap was using a plug kit to fix a puncture on a bike

Ive been lucky with punctures but this week I managed to pick up an inch woodscrew in the rear tyre , left it in an rode home 25 ish miles , just about got home with 12 psi left........got up early this morning and thought I would have a go at repairing it with one of the two ŕoad side repair kits I have ,  one a crafty pluggef and the other a FOWLERS version of the same thing , used the fowlers one following the inst
ructions and in about 10 minutes the jobs done , didnt use the air canisters , I'll save them if I ever get stuck in the middld of  nowhere , I recently bought a SLIME compressor to use with the repair kits , connects to the bikes battery and easily pumps the tyre up to recòmended pressure , just a shame both items dont fit under the seat....I'll let the pictures do the talking but happy to answer any questions......well it is FOCU     ;)

I have asked before but couldn't understand the procedure,how do you put these photos on ?
When you post on a pc there is a section underneath the writing box that says Additional Options, click that and it opens to Attach where you can browse your image files. It may be different if using a phone.There is another way by using the add media button -Aeva Media

Here is mine that I keep under my seat but as I said it may even be 10 years old brought from hein gerrik- hopefully the gas will still be ok. You even get a cute little piece of metal to use as a knife to cut the excess off. That is really good advice about the canisters freezing.

Here is a picture from my refurb which is a good comparison to what has been cut off. I can almost understand removing the stand for a few reasons but to cut the lugs off is a step too far IMO

« on: 05 September 2018, 04:33:25 PM »
what i meant by  little difference 2 mins or 30 is that most of the oil that is not down there will be down after a few mins so looking after 30 wont be that different to 2. i was rying to but at time on it as your original post only said a few mins, funny enough exactly the same as the manual. its easier to add an egg cup full if the light flickers on than it is to take some out.
i would say that the term- a few mins, is longer than 2 but shorter than 5 unless its mrs sharp getting ready and then i take a few to be 30

Souds ok to me, I found that after 1 day like you it gos up and it will even keep going up after a few days after standing. Let it settle for 1/2 hour and use that as your guide, if you try too hard to get a perfect level when you look/measure after 1 day you will start to get oil light flash on fast acceleration.

Erm, no, don't let it settle for half an hour, 'cos that would be wrong!
Do it the way I said above.
Which was
You should start the engine for a couple of minutes first, then switch off and let it settle, that's the level you measure at.
You never actually stated a settling time.

Can you imagine taking your bike into a shop for an oil change and they charged you 30mins labour for waiting for it to settle?  :rollin

It will level out and settle in a couple of minutes tops.
Probably makes little difference 2 mins or 30 maybe you should of said 30mins was not necessary rather than plain wrong. But it will carry on draining down with the sight level going up for another 48 hours.Also when you tip in some extra oil its easy to over do it because even that takes time to fully get down. I find putting in an egg cup full at a time helps :D
