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...

Re: Broken-up Magneto Drive Chain

I have had this happen on timing chains before. I have put it down to bent teeth on the cam or magneto sprockets.

FERCing final drive chain

I purchased a new final drive chain at stafford as my old one has got to the end of its adjustment. 100 links as quoted, and when I fit the new chain, it is towards the end of its adjustment! When I counted the links on the old chain, I discovered that I had a half link in the chain, so I was runnin...

Re: Classic Bike Insurance : A Rant.

I have just received my renewal from peter James, up an extra £6 from last year. Small change really, but 7 years ago, it was £80. Perhaps I’m just a tight git, but in my opinion, insurance should go down not up - unless you claim.

Are peter James still the best bet?

Re: Rear brake cable.

Lee, forgive the stupid question, but have you made sure the brake shoes are correctly adjusted on the fulcrum adjuster?

It’s surprising how much of a difference it makes, but I do know others who have missed that.
