If you are replacing the lower bush the easiest thing to do is to VERY carefully using a hacksaw cut the bush close to the nut, as there is a lip on the bush approximately 1/16th of an inch thick. This will release the pressure on the nut without damaging the stanchion or burring it if you gently ho...

Mike, Peter James will insure your huntmaster on its frame or engine number if you haven't got it registered, and they do let you bolt on modern bikes. Last year i was paying £160 per year for my VH (still not finished) and a zx6r ninja. It is a very cost effective way of insuring modern bikes

I use a full face AGV helmet with a flip down sun visor inside the main, which is very useful for those of us who do not wear glasses and don't have reactalites. If i did more continental stuff i'd probably go for a flip front type (to stop having to take it off through customs)

I would be very interested to see the accident statistics, the amount of young kids being irresponsible on 50cc scooters or 125cc bikes with L plates on in my area is massive. Several have nearly ended up as ornaments on my bonnet and I make sure I pay attention to bikers being one myself!

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone would be so kind as to send me a paper template showing where abouts the hole for the carb rubber for a VH air filter should be.

Prestige Electro Plating in Mexborough (near doncaster) are fantastic and very good value for money. Heavily recommend them.

Just for reference then - me and Dad make this drift tool for doing the same job on my '57 swinging arm.

Made from 1/2'' round bar bent about 2/3rds down and filed flat on the bottom. Works a treat as long as you give it a good whack and use some colourful language.

I got quotes from both, seemed to have a few hoops to jump through. Eventually got a quote from Peter James (he co-founded FJ) based in brum and seem very reasonable - about £70 for a '57 VH, and they did not argue about AV or ask for anything. Also worth mentioning that i'm 27 and added a Kawasaki ...
