Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Sad day indeed Shiftin, 91 is a good innings. Watching someone go downhill with Dementia isn't something I'd like to see again.

Condolences for you and your family

Re: Smile of the day - What is yours?

Tis nice isn't it. Had my Zafira for 15 years, and I would have kept it, had I not thought it was going to cost a lot to keep going. The temporary 700 Astra was fun for a while, but it was the same...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Yep I do all of the above, and I'm sure mine is triggered off by our office, either by the carpet or something else, as I'd had a day in the office and not outside. We don't have air con thank god,...

Had a headache from sinus pain most of the day, came home to this rancid smell of my vegetarian daughters Pad Thai cooking sauce, nearly made me vomit.

Re: Misfiring

Check the choke cable hasn't gone stiff as this was a major cause of my curvy running poorly.

Usually the rear carb once it's gone through the splitter, it stopped the rear plunger from retracting...

Re: The Org Bar, Pull up a chair and share. What're you drinking?

I'm going through a bit of a non alcoholic phase, not a deliberate choice, just don't fancy drinking anything alcoholic at home. When I'm away with my team, I'll have a pint with a meal. Perhaps it...

Re: Wheeler Dealers

I didn't think I'd like the change, but I've watched all this series.

Some changes don't work, like Chris Evan on Top Gear, or even worse ( I stopped watching years ago), but the format is broadly...

Re: Advice on getting my bike going after a long lay off

You can split the caliper or just drill a hole in the caliper and punch the old pin out.

Obviously the hole needs to be smaller than the diameter of the pin

Re: Gunk, lube and rust....

2. Yes, change the hoses and BBQ paint will be fine, doesn't really need to withstand heat, but tough enough to withstand the crap coming off the front wheel

Re: Advice on getting my bike going after a long lay off

Yes, you can buy the rear caliper pins separately, but buy stainless ones off eBay, which won't corrode themselves into the caliper body.

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Just noticed a big gouge in the paint on the fairing panel of my poor old Sv. Happened the other day when my pushbike fell over, handlebar stem must have caused it, but I hadn't noticed it. Bugger...
