Re: PLY Smart helmet

In the event of a crash do not remove a motorcyclists helmet.

Unless the cheap chinese lithium battery contained in it is on fire.

I always filled oil to the top, and you need all the help you can get with the 99 engines

Re: Noisy Cam chain?

Glad you got sorted. Seems you seriously dodged a bullet with the skipped timing. That is rare, and generally causes immediate engine death.



That's rubbish. There's no way "load" on the...

Re: Curvy Carb heater circuit

Didn't even know the heater circuit had a diode!

I've left them unplugged, and also built custom looms that didn't have them, never made any difference. Didn't stop carb ice when they worked...

Re: Noisy Cam chain?

It is function of it. Curvy tensioner has a threaded bar down the middle, pointy one has a ratchet pawl.

Curvy one you need to rotate it round to slacken it off, pointy one you take the spring out...

Re: Noisy Cam chain?

Don't just go start putting random formulations (a lot of which are snake oils) in your oil before actually fixing the fault.

Running your oil low did not wear your cam chain out, no bloody way....

Re: Noisy Cam chain?

Depends if you took spring out before removing tensioner

Pointy engine tensioner is nothing like that cbr one

Re: Noisy Cam chain?

Cam chain is a big job, I can't remember completely but I think it may mean removing the head.

I did one on a K5 or therabouts. Other option could be a broken cam chain guide/tensioner follower...

Re: Rearsets.

Those in pic look roughly the same as stock S model ones in terms of position.

Most aftermarket rearsets are made to be higher and further back for a sportier position and more ground clearance...

The thing is, the scumbags who operate the camera vans know exactly where the decent overtaking spots* are, so will prioritise them.

Re: It's ok, I know how to drift a truck

You can get a land rover a good bit deeper than centreline of axles, the grot holes let the cab flood and keep traction :-D

But yeah... plowing in like a mad bugger is never going to end well.
