  1. RC30 Arai, who's gonna buy it?

    There are testing procedures and there is real life. Trick is to find one that fits your needs...
  2. Hello again from the Great North-Wet

    "bolt for the border" Yeah, nothing lasts forever so live life to the fullest! Made redundant in 2016, have not been bored a single day yet.... (but one day will secure another job....).
  3. Queue the clip and sing along... "and now we're solid, solid as a rock...."
  4. The offending article....
  5. Brake Bleeding

    Same difference on "normal" setups. Linked ones are a different kettle of fish...
  6. The Dutch VFR400 guru had a solution http://www.nrp-carbs.co.uk/shop/index.php?route=product/product&keyword=vf500&product_id=697 He can help me drill out the rivits, tap M3's... http://400v4service.nl/content/2014/12/Reparatie-benzinekraan-RC-30-dec-2014

  8. RC30 Arai, who's gonna buy it?

  9. RC30 Arai, who's gonna buy it?

    Chris "stalker" Walker, now there is a name from the past.....
  10. Checked the fiche and as expected, the seal is not a separate part..... (I have a set if #4 in the drawing, but that is not where it leaks from. It leaks from "the heart". The assembly above #6.)
  11. As I use MOTUL 5100 in my VF, a friendly person mIled me some wee decals to put on tge engine near oil fill plug You win some You loose some....
  12. Due to the high mount Akrapovic, the GIVI rack on my RC36 sat a bit higher and wider. The topbox base plate no longer fitted. So I fitted a steel plate on the rack's "legs" and drilled a few holes to fit the base plate. Solid as a rock as the earlier picture shows. Head on crash did not budge it...

    Have you made sure you donot "loose" warmth elsewhere? I.e. do you wear a balaclava under your helmet? As you loose warmth (lots of blood in your head circulating and freely radiating warmth outward..), your body will start sacrificing fingers and toes to keep the more vital organs warm....
  14. Givi Wingrack

    Fingers crossed.....
  15. Fukkerdefuksels... When firing up the engine for the 1st time since a cold winterstop, something was smoking..... Had to put the bike in the shed (priorities...), but sniffed some fuel the next day and saw a small wet spot... Yep, fuel tap is leaking.... In the off position..... In ON not so much. Any pointers to a new seal?? Had put the tank brimful with ethanol free fuel, so...... Never a dull moment, is THIS my thanks for the new HEL lines?????
