An interesting front brake at the 2019 Annual Rally

I spotted a couple of similarly modified front brakes at the 2019 Annual Rally. Unfortunately... I never spotted the owners! Does anyone know anything about these brakes?

Clutch oil leaks.

I'm working my way through oil leaks on my Mk 2... The oil leak I'm looking at, at the moment is between the clutch and the primary chain case. I know there are some spun aluminium dishes, that can be riveted to the clutch chain wheel. At the moment, I don't want to invest the time in making and fit...

Re: Oil filter quality

Filter was fitted to a Mk2. Done about a 1000 miles. I cut the paper out of the filter and it wasn't that dirty but I suppose at 1000 miles it shouldn't be. I'm going to try a MAN filter in the future. I'll cut it open and compare.

Mk 2 rear suspension springs

The new set of springsI ordered from Draganfly arrived today. Fitted 'em this morning and went for a ride this afternoon. I ride two up and the old springs were bottoming out. Although there didn't look much of a difference between the old springs and the new springs... the difference was definitely...

Oil filter quality

Looking on the internet, there seems to be quite a difference in quality of oil filters. I've just done an oil change, so thought I'd have a look in the old filter.

Re: SQ4 Sludge Trap enlargement

I've fitted some magnets to my return oil filter but couldn't remember where I saw the idea! Just found it, so thanks to Mike Nash for the idea. I posted some photo's under :- Fitting magnets to an oil filter

Fitting magnets to an oil filter.

I was reading a post about Sq4 sludge traps. There was lots of discussion! I can't remember who suggested it but.... I thought it was a good idea. The idea is to fit magnets to take magnetic particles out of the oil and stop them ending up in the sludge traps. I thought I would attach some photo's o...

Cheshire branch breakfast run

The attached photo is taken at Llanfair Caereinion narrow gauge railway station. Well worth a visit. A couple of years ago I had a return trip on the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway, it's a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Cafe is nice with friendly locals. I wish I'd taken a few more phot...

Re: Metallic Filler Recommendation

What about J B Weld, good to a constant 260°C with a maximum of 316 °C for 10 mins. I haven't used it as a body filler but it should be worth checking out. Otherwise you could use solder.

Re: SQ4 Sludge Trap enlargement

Mike Nash, just read your magnet idea for removing particles from the oil. I'm definitely going to fit some. Simple and inexpensive (cheap!), great idea.
