  1. @alex_from_JandS - One final point, I am told my Facebook account has been blocked by J&S. My mother-in-law tried to tag me into a response to her post about the voucher issue but is unable to as I have been blocked. A little disappointing really that you are unable to respond to constructive criticism online and simply delete a post and block the user.
  2. I have found the support and advice received on this forum to be immensely helpful to me over the years and have only just found out it is possible to subscribe to help the forum operate so I have now just subscribed. It is only £2 a month, less than a cup of coffee. If you can afford to support this forum, I would urge you to do so. Dan
  3. Alex, Thank you for taking the time to respond. I am very sympathetic to the difficulties retailers are facing but as a customer who has spent over £1000 over the years in store and online I did not understand why a photo of the voucher was not acceptable when it is simply a piece of paper with a unique code printed on it. However, I accept that you are looking into it but until the issue is resolved there are a lot of people who I think may be dissuaded from gift vouchers until their online use is available; particularly in these current uncertain times. SBS, for instance, have had
  4. tried a post on J&S' facebook page. A couple of people commented then J&S deleted it
  5. I just find it a bit odd and don't understand their reasoning. I like a moan on a forum but try to avoid public whingefests on tw@tter and Fistbook.
  6. very true, bit of a trek from Wigan. I'm working at home today so a ride up to Scotland is tempting
  7. Bit frustrating. I have a J&S gift voucher from my birthday. Seen an item i want and J&S will not allow me to purchase using the voucher. Said i have to go in store; which are all closed. Offered to send photo of voucher which is simply a receipt with a code on it but apparently that is not acceptable either. They offered for me to post the gift receipt in the post to head office for them to then process and add the balance to my online account. This means writing a letter, going to the post office and posting it by registered post as it's a 70 quid I wouldn't want it to get lost. Visi
  8. Morning, I am having my head bearings replaced by a mechanic tomorrow on my 2011 Honda Hornet CB600FB. I've had the bike nearly 2 years. Front suspension seems absolutely fine with no leaks or anything but I've no idea how long since the fork oil was changed; if ever. Would it be sensible to get the mechanic to change the fork oil as a preventative measure whilst the forks are off? Not sure what they would charge to do that as well. I don't really want to spend more money unnecessarily but if it is a sensible preventative measure that will be cheaper whilst he has the front apart I may do it
  9. For chain maintenance, after trying various methods I now clean with parafin in a spray bottle using old rags until its clean and dry then use 80/90 gear oil lightly applied with a brush then wipe off the excess with a cloth. A bottle of parafin and gear oil will last years and is much cheaper than canned lube. It is fiddly but economical and its what the chain manufacturers recommend. I have used motul chain paste too which is good.

As others have said, ACF50 is a must for the winter and be prepared to strip your brakes and clean with a tooth brush and brake cleaner once in a while if you
  11. I only do around 2500 miles a year in the car now as I commute on my bike all year round so I'm not to bothered with MPG in my car. I get around 45mpg on my Hornet which I'm happy with. When they are working properly there isn't much else I'd rather be driving for comfort than an XJ6; even if though it's 16 years old. It's not the fastest car out there but it's quick enough. If I want to go fast I can jump on the bike.
  12. Mine isn't. Getting on a bit now - made in 2003 — but it is all aluminium XJ. Very comfortable family car with Air suspension although fuel consumption is a bit rubbish. I bet it's not as bad as the 24mpg that my 02 x-type does! I get about 28mpg. I drove to Dover for a last year from Wigan and got 36mpg which isn't bad. MPG not bad on the motorway but rubbish around town.
