  1. Some of us visit, but only post when they see a topic worth posting in.
  2. I don't think it was '2016' I think they all just died. Sad but true. He was a genius, massively under rated. One of the best song writers this country has seen.
  3. All the above. Plus-have you got more confident, so you are now cornering harder without realising. Most bikes reach a point where it all loosens up a bit. Usually, just before you fall off. apart from my CX500 which was 5degrees from vertical.
  4. Sorry, if you are used to brit stuff, you know how to do this. Only issue on mine was carb top/bottom screws seized up, need a decent screwdriver pref jis.
  5. I had one of these, fantastic bikes! They have heating water running through the carbs, if there is a leak, that would make the spindle seize up. Best bet, get them off, soak them all in wd40 or similar, then strip them down and clean everything., DO NOT separate the carbs from each other, top and bottoms off, all the brass jets out, cleaned with carb cleaner and replaced, spray carb cleaner through the holes while they are out. Check float heights. Manual is golden.
  6. Happy to have a look for you. If I can't do it I can recommend an excellent garage locally.
  7. From my experience shooting and mountain biking, Yellow glasses were always used for low light situations as they increase contrast. I think they are the opposite to what you want.
  8. Corrected for you, don't worry about thanking me. It's basically lego in a VR world if you think about it.
  9. Not at the moment, I figure this will be a post-Xmas splurge...unless Santa reckons I've been good. But cheers Well, give me a shout, it's sitting in the shed.
  10. I bought one last year for a bit of spraying, very similar to the one on the screwfix link and I have never used it. Interested?

  13. This is still for sale. I realise it's the wrong time of year to be selling, I'll take offers if anyone is interested. Oh, need to update the ebay link.
