Hi from sunny Huddersfield West Yorks

Post by Ruddy » Mon Aug 06, 2018 9:48 pm

Hi, I've recently acquired a 50th anniversary firestorm. Been lurking as a guest for a few days and have to say this forum is full of knowledge and tips about the bike. The bike needs a bit of work to get it sorted but rides and goes well.
Mcct's to sort first, don't want to tempt disaster. So if I can't find the info I'll be asking some daft questions no doubt so please be patient.
Steve.

There’s no such thing as a daft question (oh maybe “can I have a yellow bike please?”) so ask away to clear up any ambiguity before you seal it up and press the button!

Welcome aboard Steve :thumbup:

It's always better to ask the question before the possible mishap than after :wink:

Just getting started, and the crankshaft end cap is SOLID. I'll have a route around the forum I'm sure I won't be the first.
Thanks for the welcomes.

Removing the cap is not essential to doing the CCTs. It does make it easier though.

Any chance of a link to the cap, I can find the smaller one but not the other.
