Being a 1985 model, the brake lines would need to comply with the ADRs which were in effect at the time i.e. 2nd Edition ADRs.

There is nothing in the 2nd Edition ADRs which disallows the use of sc ...

Usually the preload on forks is 10mm so the cap isn't going to fly off too far. The resistance as you unwind is probably from dry threads, dried fork oil on the threads or the drag of the O ring. Give ...

No air required in the M1R forks. Even forks that use air only run a couple of psi and it's very fiddly to put that in with any sort of reliability. So for many forks, it's a way of bleeding out the e ...

That's the bike I showed you Brian Shocked

I tried to buy the complete bike at auction and just missed out time wise. I'm still crying about it.

It was a beautiful SB6SR. A special edition bik ...

The spacer tube is always longer than the distance between the bearing seats. This ensures the bearings aren't loaded when you do up the axle. The wheel does actually rely on the bearing press fit to ...

Could I take the gearshift and brake lever set to suit my YB8. I need some crash spares for the race bike. If the brake lever is already gone, I'll take the rest of the set pls.

I use Sikaflex 11FC on my Astralite wheels. I did it once and have never had to touch them in 15 years.

I found that these type of wheels can leak between the tyre and the rim if there is some corr ...

Well done.

On another tangent, I saw the latest work-in-progress by Mick Costin this week - another NSR500 replica. He does great work The handmade swingarm is exquisite. The custom frame looked li ...

It's a standard FZR1000 thing so it's part of the EXUP CDI. It's Yamaha's virtual reserve switch.

I haven't looked into what happens when you disconnect the system as I've got an Ignitech and custo ...
