i generally avoid it unless I'm going past as it's a crappy ride from where I live.
I am generally there for the monthly autojumble though.

Re: Hiya from Bournemouth

Nice 900!

I would agree with the pilots statement, they can be a right bastard if they are blocked or partially.

A few months shouldn't be an issue. For longer periods I would drain the carbs and put some fuel additive in the tank. I use Seafoam.

Re: Petrol Everywhere

I use Keyster rebuild kits and would recommend them. However, note that their bowl gaskets do seem to be a tad wider than standard and can occasionally catch on the floats, causing them to flood. Something to watch out for. Also, if the bike has been stood for some time with the carbs drained, the f...

I know Dave and Frank who run Z1 classics. They are trustworthy blokes and their prices are sensible. They are based in Derby - I'm going past some time next week, I could call in and take a look.

Re: Ultrasonic cleaner

When taking carbs out of the Ultrasonic cleaner, I rinse them in cold water and blow them dry with compressed air. I then give the bodies a quick spray with WD40 which stops them from getting the slight white furring which can sometime occur on the zinc based bodies. I've had a few cleaners over the...

Re: Out with the old and in with the even older! ('76 z900a5)

Got quite a bit done in between doing carb rebuilds for people. So here's an update. Cleaned up cam cover. http://www.ultim8pc.co.uk/miscpics/z900a5brown/91.jpg Cleaned up cam cover in situ. Looks a bit too shiny, but I think it will look OK once the tank is on. http://www.ultim8pc.co.uk/miscpics/z9...
