    Sounds good Martin - I'll be in touch by PM or phone.

    That's true if the top of the air filter is open to the air with unlimited flow - in fact I remember Mike Hiddart proving this on his dyno. However, these tend to be fitted when bonnet clearance is...

    Hi Graham.

    They were turned on my mate Rob's lathe from 2" aluminium round bar. The depth of the mounts is quite crucial to ensure that the headrest can be inserted and removed smoothly, and the...
