Re: Fuel Prservative

Hi,
I've not used it before so I shall probably just not worry about it since it will be just a few months at most before I take the bike out again, if not before (if there's s nice dry spell)!

No snake oil required!

Fuel Prservative

Hi,
Can anyone recommend an additive that I can use to stop the fuel in my tanking going stale?

This is the time of year when the bike is laid up, but, i'd rather not have to drain everything down.

Re: Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on an Ariel 2019

Ouch!
Indeed you were lucky that the debris didn't find its way into the crank case or oil pump!

Is this because the sprocket wasn't hardened, or what?

What does Alton say?

Re: Some woman can ride.

Scary stuff! I think I'd be pretty nervous doing that on foot because of that the sheer drop to the side. The thought of doing it on a bike, especially trying to manage the weight if it started to go, sends shudders up my spine. Maybe it's my age? No, I don't think so.............. Incredible self c...

Re: The making of Royal Enfield's nowadays

Those RE 650 look very tempting, (excellent reviews) but, I can only imagine the fall-out if I bought another bike!

Truth is I should be more than satisfied with my Ariel's and the Norton Commando that I'm putting together at the moment?!

Re: Crank pressure relief PCV reed and crank oil seal

Hi, Just a comment. I fitted a Yamaha reed valve to my VH which has a crank case breather ( I fitted it in line with this) and the reduction in oil leakage is radical. Before I could never get the rockers to stop leaking around the head gaskets, now the engine is pretty much oil tight (I do get a bi...

Hi Steve,
Fascinating stuff. Does each of those rack mount batteries really hold a 3kwhr charge? Wow!!

Amazing stuff!

Re: Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on an Ariel 2019

Hi Steve,
Your electric marvel looks wonderous. I bet it feels strange riding something that makes no noise, has no gears and I imagine accelerates like a rocket!

Be safe.

Re: Stupid question No. 26

Hi,
I know originality is a good thing, but, practicality is also good!

I'm sure no one would notice stainless screws unless they had nothing better to do.

Trestan Paint Finishers

All, It is so nice to be able to give a whole hearted recommendation, particularly when in these days it is so frequent to be confronted with indifference. At the recommendation of Andover Norton I took my barrels and heads to be stove enamelled by Trestan in Southampton. They did a lovely job. Two ...
