not sure anyone who does the repair - have heard of this happening on fibrglass tanks from the increasing amount of ethanol in fuel
it needs a coating of something like POR15 otherwise it will just keep happening to other areas of the tank.
not sure what the correct stuff is as i have only used por15 on steel tanks

that banding is what holds it all together (sort of)
its riveted on at the 'exit' end of the exhaust once the old band has been removed by drilling out the rivets

-please note that i only threw that ebay link up for people to see that they are available, you will have to know the correct size you need

as i keep telling my godson when teaching him fabrication "you can always cut some off but you cant put it back on"
-i dont think he has realised what a welder is for yet, i was told that during my joinery course

The boss at the garage I go to asked the mot tester why he passed the Harley that was as loud as thunder yet failed the Honda step thru cos it had a slight blow. The Harley was louder at tick over than the Honda at full throttle.
His reply... The Harley exhaust isn't blowing and I don't like the twit that owns the Honda.
So yeah. Maybe you and the bike are being tested!

and my honda cub is still sitting in the shed

mechanical speedo swap
out of wondering what sender did you use (obviously a mechanical one but off what?)

there is usually a marking saying not for road use on the banding and that will give you a fail
however if someone Accidently replaced it with a bsau stamped band after a repack

then it is less likely to get a fail - but once again this comes down to how anal retentive the mot guy is... they do know what is/isnt legal but that bsau is a requirment i believe
and if you do get stopped by the police you will have to say that you bought the can as is 2nd hand at a bike show / autojumble
because if there is a vosa checkpoint nearby you are still likely to end up paying a visit and its better to be just wrong and get a rectification notice than to say openly that you did it to decieve the mot station (who knows what would happen there[size=78%])[/size]

mot centers i believe will just pass as acceptable levels
i had my vl800 pass at 118DB which is far too loud and he only DB tested it out of curiosity
a quick search turned up this
This from the DfT:[/size]"Motorcycle noise can be especially intrusive. Existing maximum noise limits for motorcycles are significantly higher than for cars, and even from June 1999, when a more stringent 80 dB(A) noise limit will be applied to new motor cycles over 175cc, limits will still be 6 dB(A) higher. These relatively high limits reflect the limited scope on motorcycles for cladding and other noise suppression techniques. Furthermore, the fitting by some motorcyclists of inappropriate or altered silencers, mainly on older machines, can exacerbate the problem of motorcycle noise. The UK now has one of most stringent series of regulations in force to control both construction standards for, and the sale of, replacement silencers for motorcycles."[/color]

thankfully they are just to do the job untill i rip it off the road for a rebuild but i might aswell make them as good as i can for now
not spending a fortune on a headlight that might not fit whichever front end i decide to fit in the future

so many bad bad jokes - considering its all on film then surely a max weinstein joke is on its way
(although im a lot thinner and poor)

ok thankyou tommyardin for pointing out that link issue - it was originally fine untill youtube changed there setup AGAIN
it should now bring up a list of videos for new visitors

well i got some relays ordered with the connector blocks and found some thick enough (i think) wire
just got to find some time next week to get it all fired in there

i think there are some anal retentive mot guys out there
on the chop i have a offside side mounted number plate and i had the reflector (the 2p sized ones shown above) on the offside of that
it couldnt be any further away from center and it still passed
-this was at a mainly car garage and i was giving one of his employees a hand getting his bikes rear wheel out so i may have got some leeway on that.

well after fibreglassing the hole in my tail and the grabrail holes i obviously needed to paint it
needed it in a rush today so shot down to halfords to see what was close
it turns out ford moondust silver isnt a bad match
havent clearcoated it yet but it will do me and looks better than primer over filler

i removed my reflector trimmed the excess off the numberplate (instead of buying a smaller plate)
and lifted the whole thing up as far as i could - mot time i will just get one of those stick on reflectors
might buy a new numberplate and stick it too that then put it on once a year at mot time

good point
also must remember to fix my pass switch lol

thats exactly what im planning
if my memory of electrical wiring resistance is still working then i think it needs to be 10-12 guage wire to run 120W of lights
just have to find the right relay now
if i can only find a switchover relay then i think i will have to add 2 relays 1 on/off, 1 hi/low

FZS600 Fazer / headlight relays ?
« on: 12 October 2017, 03:33:13 AM »
its 3AM and i just got back in and im too cold to investigate other than looking at diagrams and ask here

the 2000 model doesnt have headlight relays does it ?
if it does where abouts should i be looking
- im running twin dominator headlights with osram night breakers and not as impressed impressed as i should be

thinking of going direct wiring with a relay (last 30 miles have been a nightmare as there was no1 to follow)
if there is no oem relay i will just rip the loom and hide a relay under the tank
oem factory relay will get replaced if there is one as standard

just noticed the tyre pressures written on the seat
-good idea for those of us who forget the pressures as soon as we get to the compressor

the trick is to remove the pillion footrests.
that way the wife has to stay at home so you have less to carry
-do not attempt if you still have milk or coal delivered !!!!!!! :lol

« on: 08 October 2017, 03:32:26 AM »
im also a cheapskate and bought some cheap ass stuff
either way im going to have a kick ass looking laptop/phone and vape with the leftovers

ooh will also say after watching that video about the versyectamy that the shapes involved are alot easier as it has those nice little side panels that make it a lot easier to hide bits / cut off, try doing a fzs tank in two halves - holy crap is it not a good day with £12 wrap lol

FZS600 Fazer / dont try to vinyl wrap
« on: 07 October 2017, 08:56:14 PM »
well incase anyone else has the bright idea to try and DIY vinyl wrap there bike - just dont
holy crap is the tank hard to do, ripped it off and decided just to paint it when i can
it may be the quality of the wrap i used i dont know but will just give it to a professional next time

but there is only one way to find out you cannot do something - and that is to try
-except for flying using arms as wings - never try that, i promise it wont work - even if the drugs make you think you can

That's a very good price.
I bought mine from my local speedway shop in the village. It was about £18.
a SPEEDWAY SHOP in the village
-i live just outside a speedway town and we dont have one of those

i dont know if this will help as i havent got out of bed to go have a look at where you mean to take measurements (9 cans into youtube)
try searching 'threaded spacers' on ebay - i have found a few options to hide bolt threads where they need hidden for aesthetic and mechanical  purposes

when lifting a bike always remember anger is the key
had to pick up a vl800 (about 250kg) after getting knocked off and knackering my leg
shouting Muther F**ker as i literally flung it up made the cager shit themselves
= must admit i was a 15 stone no fat construction worker at the time so that may have helped

but serious downed side of bike bring bars close to rear wheel - turn your back on bike -hold bars, and whatever you can with free hand - and lift
if laying on right hand side - put in gear and kickstand down
health and safety would say bend your knees not your back but in this case it works

I just love Castrol R and I have a can in my shed which I bought to use on my old BSA (now sold) but I pop a bit in my bike every now and then and especially if I'm on a ride-out with some friends just so they can get a whiff.
I was told it is basically castor oil so that's probably why it causes stomach complaints...

Hey Hugh,
Shove a drop of Castrol R in your lawn mower tank about 5 ml will do, makes mowing the lawn a completely different experience.

that might be enough to make me mow the lawn every weekend
