Re: Kawasaki Day - Ace Cafe - Sun 15th Apr

Having been caught out last year and got absolutely soaked at the Ace VJMC Day (which had the same forecast as yesterday), I decided to give it a swerve but it seems the rain held off - great photos, although attendance seems down on last year's Kawasaki Day? - so maybe next year!

A4 Front Wheel removal

I don't have a bike ramp, so what's the safest way to remove my A4's front wheel - thought about a racing car jack, block of wood and supporting the bars by ratchet strapping them the garage rafters?

Any suggestions - photos would be helpful.

Thanks

Re: Z1OC at Stafford in April?

Thanks, I'm ok with the lugs - it's the route the strap takes from there as in, does go round the tubes or between then - I don't want to keep snapping OE straps until I get it right.

Cheers
