    Hot weather fuel problem?

    That was my first thought too Fink, hot engine, cool fuel tank, etc If it was petrol it would smell it first or is that what made you look?

    Wow ...what did you polish the bike with to get the shine in the top pic?
  9. You're putting a lot of power (heat) through the bevel drive and the oil will be trying to cool it as well as lubricate I'd drain the oil and put some fresh in, you may be getting condensation in the hub My Le Mans used do this when thrashed in very hot weather

    Bridgestone T30 Report

    Thats due to nobody knowing how to lay Tarmac properly, always the cheapest bid .. a decent contractor mixed coarse crushed hard rock in when overbanding A biker friend of mine invented a coating to go on metalwork in the highway, using epoxy binder, £8 per manhole ....it won awards etc in 2003, never seen it used despite many promises by utility companies ....

    Gear Indicator

    Yes I get that but it's easily cleared by selecting another gear and let the clutch in Its the position sensor not being activated in the gear box, not a fault of the bike, more due to my left foot
