Re:

Its part of a cunning plan, it makes 428 quid sound cheap :D Could be . . . But I was expecting the bill to be £400+. With some trepidation I'm awaiting a call to say that my two magnetos have been rebuilt . . I'm expecting them to cost £800+ :shock: . Why do we do it ?? I could have been wealthy i...

Re: Woe woe and thrice woe.. VB600

If the fuel in the tank has been there a while it can 'go off' and make starting very difficult.

Re: Belt Primary Drive

Nice job Steve. I meant to say when I posted pictures from the LDR that this HS has a belt drive and a split primary chaincase to allow access to the drive end without disturbing the clutch. I don't think the divided cover was specifically for the belt drive, it was a well known mod by the competiti...

Re: Welding Old Alloy

Are there any reasons the sleeve could not be made in steel instead? It seems to be a weak point in all of those gearboxes that the sleeve split. I have just looked at mine, and it is also in need of repair. But it will have to wait until winter. Knud In theory (theories are great 8-) ) the sleeve ...

Re: 3d Printer

Its a fascinating subject - a new technology in its infancy.

I wonder what we will be creating from scratch in 10 or 20 years time??
