    I’ve made the decision to go. The weather although not perfect, could be a lot worse. If it rains it looks like it will be light so as long as I’m moving, shouldn’t get wet. Got the tonneau...

    I just came back on here to say the weather forecast is sort of looking more favourable by the hour. But then I've probably put a hex on the whole thing just by saying that!
    Anyway, fingers crossed....

    Exactly the same as you. But I am much closer, about 45 minute drive.
    If there is a chance of rain then I may risk it. But if rain is guaranteed, I will be staying home.

    This weekend - 13th June.

    Well the weather is set to be a cracker so if you intend joining our humble meet at the Horton Inn, bring sun cream.
    I’m hoping some people will be able to attend. Afterwards I’ll be off to the...

    Fixed the slipping clutch issue today.
    The slave cylinder was new last year but never seemed quite right. So removed it, took it apart hoping to find a broken spring. It was fine. So after some head...

    Dax clutch master cylinder.

    Tearing out what’s left of my hair here.
    During the gearbox swap I also changed the clutch master cylinder which is one of those overpriced black things because it was leaking.

    The preload on the shock will have no difference to the fully loaded shock with weight on wheels unless the weight on wheels is not sufficient to overcome the preloaded the spring is set to. If that...

    The spring position on your shock absorber will determine your ride height. The shock absorber length will determine how much dampening you get in either direction. The perfect scenario, with weight...

    These engines being the size they are, and let’s face it, a little agricultural do get up to temperature in no time at all. Which is a good thing. The trick is to keep it there.

    Thats a weird one. Initially I thought the wishbone was on upside down. But looking at the lug that the swing arm attaches too, it looks to be correct.
