Yay! It lives!

Took a while, spark was shit in spite of a Faraday high output stator from MSR. Happily it was only a shit connector to the coil low tension side.

And no more jetting ever! However I may need to get a new throttle cable as I reckon the one that's in it is just a shade too short.

Pulls like a feckin train. No surging and if I had actually put enough petrol in it I might have avoided a long push home. Doh!

Anyway live and learn and enjoy the ding ding....

» Thruxton BSB: Iddon calls for SLOWER BSB Superbikes and lap times
Jul 30, 2021 - 7:25 AM - by Admin
Bennetts British Superbike Championship leader Christian Iddon has declared that improved tyre grip is making motorcycle racing more dangerous.

It has long been accepted that the improvement in lap times owes a great deal to tyre development, but Iddon declared that faster corner speed has increased the risk to riders, especially on certain British tracks, without adding anything to the entertainment value and questions whether something should/could be done about it.

"Myself, Birdy and Debra at VisionTrack believe we should all go back to radial tyre technology and/or limit the

» Fuel Shelf Life
Jul 27, 2021 - 11:07 PM - by hornet224
Hi Lads,
Any way to make fuel last longer. If I have bikes in shed for few months, they are hard to start. Also thinking about equipment like electric generators that have fuel in tank for long period.

» Stiffening up the front end (so to speak..)
Jul 27, 2021 - 1:02 PM - by -alan-
The forks on the recently acquired PC800 are too soft. My 80kg alone uses up about 1/3 of the free travel - and if you hit a speed bump at anything other than a crawl it bottoms out. If you miss spotting a pothole and hit the thing at speed - well that's pretty brutal altogether.

A quick google confirms that they came out of the factory like that. It's never going to be a taut handling thing, but I'd like to do something to stop the thing taking such a bang every time it bottoms out.

Rather than go chasing stiffer springs and playing with the fork oil, I was looking for an easier fix - and one with a certain amount of adjustability, so I can play about with the preload to a degree.

One option seems to be to track down and fit (or make up) a set... [Read More]

» Hotel in Madrid
Jul 21, 2021 - 8:15 AM - by strontium_dog
Not a bike topic but just wondered if anyone could recommend a hotel in Madrid for a few nights in September. I don't know the city at all but someplace central and not mental money.

Gracias amigos
