Hello all
Going to be taking the wheels out for some new tyres - can anyone advise on socket size for both front and rear please. Is it necessary to hold a socket/spanner on both sides of the rear spindle when doing back up?
I have never needed a second socket. But a torque wrench is a must unless you have got the feel of an engineer.

Very sad that someone has died. However if the tables had turned and it was a man in this situation, I’m not sure the public would be so forgiving.
Would a man who had dated a 17 year old girl, who had (allegedly)attacked two other women before, and was said to have attacked his sleeping girlfriend with a bedside lamp be called “beautiful” in the press and magazines. I think not.
Today on the BBC morning news they had the walking bloke in his speedo's in the studi (in his speedo's) Dan said "now is all over you can get some clobber on" then Sally Nugent pipped up looking at speedo man " Oh I don't know I quite like the speedo's ".
 Imagine the calls for the presenter to to be removed if it were a bloke looking at a woman in a bikini in the studio.

On a more relevant side note, i just read that Kirk Douglas left his entire $61million fortune to charity.
That's a very generous thing to do, and it's not like his immediate family was short of a few quid, but i think i would've left some to them regardless if it was me.
Not a lot really I would of thought he had a bit more than that. If he was sparticus today in a movie he would be paid 61M for one film.

So another case where the culprit blames their troubles on their mental state, when in fact it's not nature taking a turn for the worse, but all preventable

Isn't it fortunate that mental health and drug rehabilitation programme provisions haven't been cut to ribbons over the past decade...
Why are you quoting an American - drug company backed - organisation.

They had fitted another new chain while doing the accident repairs as the chain was bent in the accident .
Cant imagine how you would bend a chain but as they fitted a new one it still sounds to me like and over tightened rivet link.
 What' more worrying is if they have fitted it too tight - what else have they done wrong and if it is just an over tightened rivet link why has no one at the dealer realised it and slapped the fitter around the head and redone it BEFORE telling you about it - they should of spotted it and sorted it before - no need to tell you anything.

  BBC just doing it’s job I don’t think the BBC goes in for muck racking, gutter journalism, cheque book journalism or phone and email hacking.
Not that I am saying they don’t ever over step the mark or get it wrong.  They rightly got screwed over their reporting of Cliff Richard.

BBC had one of those black backgrounds with the dates and a photo of her - like they do for well known actors, a bit sickening when they too played their part in hounding her in the same report hey also showed some bbc footage of her surrounded by press and cameras and then the report over the footage they were calling it a "media scrum" - when they were there and part of it.

 Seems to be a lot of journalists falling over themselves backtracking

What is shocking is that 11 people have contributed to a post about a reality tv personality and yet only about 9 people have contributed to the political thread that Graham started - and half of them only posted to to ask for it to be locked  :eek

Only slight issue is the front fairing has been sprayed completely silver on the inside and I'm not sure I like it.
Not sure what you mean there - owning a black bike my fairing is black on the inside, are other colour  :faz fairing also black on the inside then ?

Find the joining link, move it to the centre of the free travel below the swingarm, the link should move freely either end and return back straight.  If it remains kinked even slightly it's too tight and must be replaced.  To check the rear sprocket alignment, measure from the centre of the rear axle to the end of the swingarm, where the aluminium joins the cast rear adjuster.  It should be within 1mm, better spot on.   
I recently changed my chain and sprockets, the sprockets and alignment were fine but the chain did hsve some tight spots and one in particular was tighter than the rest and it was that one that was causing the knocking sound which I could even feel through the left peg. Once I have changed everything it was silky smooth again. Do as gnasher says and check that link.

 It sounds very much that the rivet link has been overtightened.Could a dealer get it so wrong and then also not realise the issue on hearing it. If they have over tightened the link then its also likely that the sprockets are out of alignment too.If there was no damage to the engine in the accident how could the engine internals be damaged.

had a few mins out in the garage tonight, looks like someone may have broken into my garage,no damage and i cant see how they got in,for some strange reason they un-bolted the tip sensor,turned it upside down and bolted it back on ......spotted it straight away,turned it over and the old girl fired up first press of the**dy kids      ;) 
Its the garage fairies - I have them too, they hide nuts and washers when you have just put them down 2 mins ago. Sometimes I just stop and listen and I can hear them giggling-little pointy eared bastards.

Chinese students in my local Midlands town - wearing face masks - cheeky focs if you dont lile our air then go back to China. They were actually wearing them before corona. Is it actually just a fashion item for them.

I have a few theory's.
  •   It was Russia in an attempt to scupper the upcoming Olympics cause they have been banned.
  • It was released by China to clear the streets in the ongoing Hong Kong protests = it worked.
Any I missed.

I never knew that my laptop had two slots for RAM and only one was occupied with a 4GB board.
I just bought a refurbished 4GB board for £17, took the back cover off, slotted it into the empty space, and now have 8GB to play with.  :)
There can be limits and bottlenecks with the amount of ram that is actually recognised by your system as a whole. Depends on the motherboard and also the x32 or x64 operating system.

Sounds like I know what I am talking about ----- I don't fully so Im sure an expert will come along and help us all. 
Yours could of equally been occupied by x2 2gb cards. I always understood you had to add in pairs - as in- you could not add an 8 to a 2 card motherboard that already has a 4 in one slot, you should add another 4 to the vacant slot or replace both slots with a matching 8s =16 total or take em all out and just have x1- 16GB  :o :\ :uhuh :wall   
To further complicate things tower PCs can have 4 slots so you can go 4x4=16 or just use 2 and go 2x8=16  or even go 1x16.
My PC now has 16gb Ram. And a samsung evo ssd opends win7 in 30 seconds and closes in 9 seconds.

There are companies out there that buy up big office computers when the office upgrades and they get them by the pallet, supposedly check and service and put on an official windows re-seller win 10 and sell base models for about £150 (250 HD 4GB ram ) then you have the option to upgrade the ram and Hdd for either ssd or 1/2TB Hd.   
Just seeing if anyone has had dealings with such places. I have a few years ago with one but they are no-more.

I have seen a few advertised recently and they are all much of a muchness

You need to look at the spec. Find out the CPU model and see what it rates as on CPU benchmark. Amazingly, you will find brand new machines with slower CPU's that the 10 year old one you are condemning to the bin. Also, make sure it has an SSD disk drive that is at least 256GB and 8GB of RAM if you want it to last more than a couple of years.

Building your own is another option but I am finding that more and more expensive these days.
Yes its not the spec I am unsure about it is the seller to use that I am looking for some feed back on. I am looking at something around i5-3470 3.20GHz 500Gb ssd and as you say 8 GB ram.
