Re: Cam caps bolts - stripped threads

I got a time sert kit. My concern was the dowels used to locate the caps. The flared top of the serts is larger than the diameter of the dowels so they'd flop about in the holes rendering them useless. @Julian - it's not so much the who. I know Chris well and know he's capable but he's the other sid...

Cam caps bolts - stripped threads

Setting up cam timing on the Lawson. Noticed previously helicoiled holes have become loose again and a couple of other holes are close to letting go. What is the recommended fix here? I know others have solved this regular issue but couldn't find any of the posts where it was covered in detail. It's...

Z1000R Fork data / set up

Experts. Can anyone confirm correct specifications and set up for standard front forks of a 1983 Z1000R. The factory workshop manual is, i believe, incorrect as it gives suspension travel as 180mm. Your average trail bike doesn't have that level of travel! Need correct data on: Fork total suspension...

Re: Charging

interesting read and cant understand why i missed this thread in the past. As you know I have an Electrexworld race alternator fitted to my Croz replica. My experiences of them match yours. They are happy to take your money but follow up customer service is appalling. I also had a number of issues i...

Re: MOTO GADGET stuff

I have a brand new M Unit. Bought for my Harris but never used. I was keeping it for another project but tax man has other ideas for me. Message me if interested.

Re: Cadwell Park Full Circuit - Friday 22 September 2017

I'm booked. Inters group. Not sure what bike to take though. Might go hassle Mike at Full Metal to finish the loom on my ELR. University return is the Saturday and the week after.

I wasn't able to make it due to domestic commitments. Sounds like it was a bit of a disappointment.

Re: Spa Classic 2017

Another Spa cock up from me. Instead of managing to film my one and only session i must have hit the wrong mode on the camera and came away with one still as a memory of a long and wet weekend.

Re: Rockingham 12th aug saturday no limits

Here's a video of me on one of the sessions in lower group. Camera positioning was not great as i attached to crash bung on the left frame rail. I was riding a Bimota SB6R so being very restrained; falling off this and damaging unobtainable bodywork does not bear thinking about. I really enjoyed my ...

Re: gpz900r buying advice

Robw ran a GPz900 for many years. He's your expert. I briefly flirted with 900 ownership a few years ago. There's a very active and healthy forum based out of UK for them with loads of buyer advice. They also re-manufacture some of the obsolete parts. Overheating issues is one to watch. Run the bike...
