Re: Piston slap or valves?

Re: Condensation

I reckon you need to try for a flow of air from one end of the garage to the other. Helped my unheated garage when I put an air brick into the wall furthest from the door (which has a good gap...

Re: Hartside Cafe burnt down

Such a shame. Hopefully there will some temporary facility until reconstruction is complete. Always busy when I have been there.

Re: Michelin Road 5 Announced Jan 2018

Been very pleased with the PR4s. About 7k on my set and they still have several mm of useable rubber. They have done some long tours and feel planted. Suspect the PR5 will be another good offering...

As a stop gap bodge you could squirt some high temp silicon sealant at the rattle. Once cured it may stop the noise.

Re: Coolant leak?

But a guard would not have stopped the horn falling off into the back of the radiator. Going to check the fixing on my horn bracket is done up. Thank you for the heads up.

Re: Pointy Rear Brake bleeding not going well

Have you tried moving the brake pedal down whilst drawing fluid through the bleeder with the vacuum. That has worked on my old bike to shift air from the master cylinder.
