In a couple of weeks time ive got either a 520 mile ride and then a 300 mile ride, or a 600 mile ride followed by a gallon or two of beer with the lads when i arrive.

A mate of mine has got one of those Airhawk inflatable cushions, which im going to borrow.

I'll let you know how i get on.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Damper rod bolt
« Last post by Dea-ville on 24 June 2018, 01:57:11 PM »
Hi all, planning to change the front springs soon on my gen 1 fazer thou, i know removal of the damper rod bolt is required when changing seals but is it required when changing the springs? Flicking through the Haynes manual it shows removal of spring & change of fork oil without touching the damper rod bolt.

I also had this one. Its almost like a trick question. How many bikes are actually 50cc -Any? I thought they were 49cc - ergo my answer 125cc

50cc is the *minimum*, so mopeds being 49cc aren't legal.

You can use a C90 on the motorway, but you're taking your life in your hands if you do!!

Well thank you mr hornby..........iam no engineer but I do know how to make a strong frame , woodworker by trade in the furniture industry , taught myself to weld ,still basic stuff but learning all the time , cutting the scaffold was straight forward with a angle grinder , its tight against the end walls so accurate measurement was the most crucial part of the job...

been repairing the solid concrete slab of a roof this weekend , stripped the corragated cement board sheets I put up there a few years ago , filled all the holes and gaps and yesterday gave it a good coating of PVA , let dry overnight and ive just finished giving it its first coat of bitumen paint , ill leave it a week and give it another coat.......

spent less than £100 on the project but has eaten into my riding time.....going to put that right this afternoon while the footies on  ;)
