  1. Those are for the Honda U wheel lock …..presumably in the hope you get one
  2. In the video @5:10 he’s got a piece the insulation on his finger will a welding torch on the other side of the 1/4” thick block Is the carbon felt that efficient?
  3. A 1/4” neodymium will do the trick
  4. In the video he sorts out a heat shield for his 8 litre Viper engine that works perfectly so a Viffer is going to be no problem
  5. A set of new springs the correct size
  6. As you’re in the UK be very careful what springs you get if you fit Emulators Most of the replacement springs on the market here are longer than OEM and dispense with the spacer tube so you can’t accommodate the Emulators without preloading the spring more I know this because it’s taken 3 months and counting to get hold of the correct ones for my 750FK Emulators are going to be a simple and effective upgrade before you swap forks
  7. Assuming you’re in the UK anything under £2k is a bargain
  8. It’s just a battery charger ….look on YouTube there’s lots of videos
  9. After my bike was knocked over in a car park, the arm holding the slider was bent to the point that it had nearly gone through the fairing …the bolts had stretched which was better than having them pull out and strip the thread as the bolts replace the original subframe fixing bolts I got a set of DSG sliders from THURN motorsport from Gerhard in Germany and they’ve been tested in the same situation and they didn’t move, not cheap but worth it …. they’re also no cut, the bracket slots through the groove in the panel
  10. I put some zinc based etching primer in the tank and ran it around the inside
  11. ABS pipe cement and just glue it back in
  12. Yes, the Synergy 99 is ethanol free, although as you’re in Scotland no …. might be worth driving south and getting a Jerry can full From the Esso website ”Although our pumps have E5 labels on them, our Synergy Supreme+99 is actually ethanol free (except, due to technical supply reasons, in Devon, Cornwall, North Wales, North England and Scotland). Legislation requires us to place these E5 labels on pumps that dispense unleaded petrol with ‘up to 5% ethanol’, including those that contain no ethanol, which is why we display them on our Synergy Supreme+ 99 pumps. There’s currently no requirement for renewable fuel, like ethanol, to be present in super unleaded petrol although this could change in the future, in which case we would comply with any new legislation”
  13. As you’re in the UK Esso Synergy 99 is marked as 5%E but actually contains 0% I always used BP Ultimate but after a fill up with Synergy 99 it’s got a crisper throttle response …. or maybe I just rant it more
  14. @Dalemac - the seat is in the low position in the pic
  15. I’ve got one and it doesn’t seem to catch much since I’ve been gluing a neodymium dot magnet to the end of the oil filter casing They're pretty cheap for what they do …https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/262409989613?epid=848032206&_trkparms=ispr%3D1&hash=item3d18daaded:g:F~4AAOSwX9pdjirP&amdata=enc%3AAQAGAAACkPYe5NmHp%2B2JMhMi7yxGiTJkPrKr5t53CooMSQt2orsStdebXPz4ZTXCT8FI9kPBh5WYkD5ZyeBSNoXQjzhS%2Bme3N1dcPhKnAVzFtdhKD%2FxowSWYv48XCg0ybLXnMAtBhBbsxcwrk%2FJRKqjaFtqrN9VDoGsFHwr34dTJrrtnPZb3xoQ%2BADzp%2Fq293uM%2B6rNReKam5zCnrbgO1fs4kbFdqxolZtySafSiPHeFuRNHoRS%2FnBmJwfADQXn11xqsurC%2BPc9dDteuFVzhFmqJjNeGy17OFH4S6v8svH9zX%2FTXiSHxPtssYBcTw5Kj3xuZ%2Bdgiw7rjcDoUD1DJdHu1G8NkWWD1w3n1X1d0selWOx3qiJC2uowY%2FZHP4A8zAAwRINTGcnzk7OBqMM%2F9ryPc9X7aPjUOy9ZL4GemVr8kUXmSd8YZyySU5BX6EOQoOtw1HYV9GONF%2F82LBRA4dQo8NHBpEtz090KUquelvJ9iHgZ8UVugFjI0%2Fh%2FrCWaWnpz6NVbPlJfsQsZLBsj%2FI0vtkxRlVHemn4P9cis%2BjaCq8bj%2Bm8ObPHSsxWJRPiUKvgFp%2F869ibrMrJxuXnHH93i%2BdG9TQdvKw%2FxdS%2Fmow%2FVG35PHWm7noEUgSiTi%2FSrkivKEMyRLY5%2F4FjxRHkknxW79w4pgT95YU99Sbai3UKxWtQJJuk0usR1xd1ZANyq7xiYROddu0sN0XIHPBj0KLcnQEIZ1D74RcMJNIeSOHWrx5jzNuOAlZWknsGHoIWKUkUnKdP%2FAnI88GYfz2aAIZ1WdrHu9Ma%2B53KTtrekDyuFV8TT25dizZdecc3AUBGiMvuJjepejSHnlXNKAryYDnY5hcT20xsB2e9sTZNL5F9fN6t7Qa78O|ampid%3APL_CLK|clp%3A2334524
  16. Yes they’re correct Any reason you’re not unbolting the callipers and doing it that way?
  17. Call this company and ask about getting the old crank journal welded and ground https://www.mnrreconditioning.co.uk/services
  18. Photograph and video everything then put it away …. then contact the AA vehicle inspection team and book an appointment They'll give you an engineers report to use against the SBF OR just let SBF that the AA are getting involved and see where that leads I assume you have trading standards involved? AA inspection is £142 for basic and £190 for detailed if that helps https://www.theaa.com/vehicle-inspection/
  19. The Booster plug is a piece of junk …. If you want to smooth the throttle response then I can recommend Race Bike Evo
  20. The worst case would be the engine casing getting broken and that hasn’t happened, your gearbox is OK, so it’s realistically a reconditioned crank, bearings, flush out oil galleries etc possibly a new conrod A lot of work but you seem to have a decent workshop and presumably the knowledge If it was me I’d jump on this and build one decent engine https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/174828079637?hash=item28b490ca15:g:X80AAOSwyzJg4ynq
  21. Not sure if there’s much difference between the VFR and the Crosstourer but here’s a complete motor and automatic gearbox https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/274857159943?fits=UKM_CCM%3A1200|UKM_Make%3AHonda|UKM_Model%3AVFR&hash=item3ffec36d07:g:TWAAAOSwmwtg4yOn
  22. I had my seat reupholstered by Elite @ http://www.sussexmotorcycles.com/elite-comfort-motorcycle-seats.html They altered the location and type of foam used and raised the height by 1” exactly as I asked They’re not far from Oxford if you want to go there and they’ll do it while you wait
  23. The only thing difficult to reach are the 2 of the push pins on the inner that have to come out I ended up using a small Allen key in a pair of mole grips As VFR78 said careful with the tabs at the top
