Seized link or two in the chain would cause a knock like you describe. Inspect the chain link by link

If it's warped it can be straightened.  Not difficult, just have to be patient and careful. 
Much better to have a working EXUP than an empty one. :)
Super easy, I straighened my by placing it in the chuck of a drill, slowley rotated it to see which way it was bent and hit it carefully with a rubber mallet, did this untill as far as I could tell the valve was straight. Then flipped it around and put the other end in the drill and did the same again. End result, pretty straight exup valve.

Or just take it to a machine shop, it will take them a few minutes and they will be able to get it dead straight with within a few fractions of a milimeter.

In the existing forum I always change to the mobile theme which works well. Is there an option to do that in the new software?

I am still having a play to see where we can increase the font size but it is complicated.

Thanks - I have made a change now - is that any better?
Yes that is better but I still have to make my screen 120% before it looks like the old one.
Its the second like of text for the poster and date is very small and vine, much better now its black. It maybe that tweaking it too much will be too big for mobiles though

From what I understand, you secure the contacts and *then* put the silicone spray/ Duck Oil/ WD-40/ ACF-50 over them to keep water away and help prevent corrosion.

As per the title its a new battery and I have some servisol silicone grease, its says for switch contacts, ignition systems but it also says "high insulation properties".Eh - I dont get it why is it used on contacts if it has high insulation properties.Should I not put anything on, or maybe copper grease, vaseline or the servisol. I am only talking about a very fine smear. Or I also have some ACF 50 I could use.
