Re: Annual Rally 2019 - Booking In

i have already paid in advance, a very simple process. I would recommend you do the same, it can’t be easy for the guys to predict numbers so we should do what we can to help them out.

Plus that means more cash to spend on rusty bits of motorcycle...

Re: What tube sealant are you using?

I think the answer may be to do as suggested Alan and carry some sealant with me in case of puncture.

Re: What tube sealant are you using?

Rob I have used it in the past but now just carry a canister of sealant for punctures. Odd that it is only now you are having issues, how long has the sealant been in? I think 'Slime' say that the sealant has a 2 year life span after being put in a tube, which would mean a tube change every 2 years...

From inspecting the valves, it looks like slime is semi curing and blocking the valve when I check tyre pressures - something I do very regularly.

Re: Which Shocks

I have heard very good things about ikon shocks, however, I understand they are a bit pricey.

I think I’ll be putting hagons on the KH when I build it.

What tube sealant are you using?

For years I have used ‘slime’ in my inner tubes, without any issues to speak of until recently. I have had, on two occasions, the slime attempt to seal up the schraeder valve and have lost tyre pressure as a result (the most recent case being a completely flat tyre). So, I am wondering if anyone has...

Re: why Li-ion batteries are no good for motorcycles

Lithium batteries are a great idea on modern bikes where space is a premium, you get excellent CCA vs size and there is a huge weight advantage over AGM batteries. You do need to care for them properly and leave them on a trickle charger. On a classic bike with no electric leg and very little to pow...
