Re: The new Norton

Watched the Bennetts interview / launch video too. Love the idea that it's a 10,000 "entry level" model that people won't mind dropping when greenlaning! What world are these people in? I was...

Re: The new Norton

For some reason it just reminds me of the MT07... the engine I think. Seems like everyone has seen the MT07 (and variations of) success and wants a slice of it. Swingarm looks a bit odd. Some bits...

Re: Cut down SV1000 Air Box Snorkel

I didn't know what the snorkel was until I looked and realised there's a big gap where mine should be. I assume the prevous owner removed it.
What problems could that cause? I'm guessing riding in...

Re: Swingarm play reduction washers for 2nd gen (pointy)

Is the play something that develops over time? I checked mine when refitting the swingarm a few days ago and all feels really solid.

If you think she was moving at the time then make sure you tell your insurance company that too.

Re: Little bump in my van

If you have a photo of their car to show there's no damage they'd be stupid to get unnecccesary work done as they may end up paying for it out of their own pocket as they shouldn't be able to claim...

Re: Little bump in my van

Is there any damage to your van? She'd need witnesses too to prove that she didn't drive in to you too. Having photos is good. You didn't tell your insurance that you admitted liability did you? They...

Re: Trouble removing the exhaust

Don't worry! I'm glad I've done it. If I'd left it another year (or more) it might have been a real pain of a job. At least in the current condition it's all coming apart nicely. I'd rather do...

Re: Trouble removing the exhaust

They seem to have much less than the main swingarm bearings. What there is left is fairly dried out and sticky too. Causing it to be really stiff pivoting. From the difference between them I'd say...

Re: Newbie signing in for duty

You might find you have a small guard on top of the swingarm to protect the rear shock from most of the dirt. I was going to get a hugger but someone pointed out it wasn't very necessary for mine....
