Re: From 107 to 128

An engine hoist crane will do it without risking your back.
Ask around, anyone working in old cars will have one in the back of the garage.
Or do what I did. Find a hoist normally used for personal care...

Re: RamAir Filtres

Unless you own (or have free access to) a Dyno, or are willing to make and fit wideband lambda sensors to your exhaust downpipes and a display, so you have an idea of what the fuelling is doing, I'd avoid pod filters. But if your going ahead, at least fit a qd fuel line connector so that taking the ...

Re: The RD400 drag bike

See if you can get it running in time for the Brand's Hatch trackday I booked for April.
You'd still beat me to the first corner, but I might stand a chance to get you back at Druids ...

Track evening at Brands 19th April

Anyone fancy joining me? They have the full day if you prefer, but I'm working so can only do the evening session. £99 for the evening, two sessions, novice and inters/advanced. Fingers crossed for this time; I booked on one last year about the same date and it was torrential rain and thunderstorms,...

Thinking of raised bars or vfr bars and/or clutch bleed/braided lines/inspection of clutch + slave cylinders. Just book a test ride of a bike w...

Re: And another thing

I'm beginning to think that "BBC" stands for "British Bowling Club".

Re: what have you done to your "bike" today

I use these, too. The only additional advice is to check after they're set by opening the throttle and letting it snap shut a few times as they can settle after setting.
