  4. I've been on earlies last two days so roads dead on the way in (0400hrs) and chok a blok on the way home. Some crazy filtering yesterday by a load of bikes and scooters, which I let myself get caught up in. When I finally got through it all I was fkn angry with myself as there were some stupid risks taken No harm done tho (other than pissing off a load of car drivers) and a much better run into work today

  6. Totally concur jcr, but as there was three of us going out to National Trust today I had no choice but to take the car. Seen so many bikers on the roads (motorways included) was very envious. But, and a very BIG BUT. the weather was so hot I don't think I would have coped too well in my full leathers being in my seventies. Mike.

  7. For those into engine porn. My 1975 T160 Trident was burning a bit of oil, so having missed out on a few weekend aways due to lockdown, I saved my money and gave the bike through to Grin Triumph in Kennoway, Fife. He is a one man operation with a great rep for auld Triumphs. I dropped it off in March and picked it up a couple of days ago. He stripped the top end and rebored the barrels out to +20 and fitted new pistons. He also fitted new valves, guides, springs etc and vapour blasted all components. Apologies it's not a Yam, but hey...the sharp eyed will note that the vacu

  13. If you want to venture farther north and end up in North Wiltshire there are plenty of quiet rural roads and loads of quiet A roads as well as Motorways i.e., M4/M5. My favourite trek is on the A429 from Chippenham(where I live) to Cirencester(where I grew up) on the way just before Ciren is the old Kemble airfield which used to be the original home of the RAF's Red Arrows which is now a private "Commercial estate?" anyway, now it is open to the public with a fantastic cafe overlooking the runways being used by private small aircraft. Not sure if the cafe which is called AV8 is open at the mom

  14. definitely a clutch pusher ball. I smashed grease around it and stuck it back into the hole where it contacts the throw bearing pushrod. dummy. i should have seen that one coming. but she runs like a champ mostly now. especially after i removed the old cigarette butts and woolen bits of rats nest out of the air box. might have to enrichen things a little now. gonna ride it for a day and decide later.

  16. Great evening at Wray bike night. Over from Slaidburn it was very foggy so had to ride very carefully. I even saw an owl perched on the Misty moor. Spooky Ride back via Quernmore, Dunsop bridge and Walley into Sabden. Sun was out then and very pleasant through the country lanes

  17. the only times i seem to be able to avoid heavy traffic in daylight are early mornings at the weekend (pre 9am) and late on Sunday evenings. i took the Ace down the country lanes between Hampshire and Wiltshire, just to get away from all the cars. i got lost for about an Hour and ended up in Salisbury. to be honest, i think the bike is just too big and heavy for those types of roads though. i think a Royal Enfield might be in my future.

  18. Cylinder is off. Turns out I had torqued it down so much I squeezed the cylinder down into the threads of the bolts. Needless to say this cylinder is shot. I had to rip some fins off to get to the nut so I could get it off. The fins came off surprisingly easy which I thought was weird. anyways, time for a new torque wrench.

  23. As finnerz said I would help but I'm a long way from you, look at the manual and it will talk you through the sequence for dismantling it and rebuild, most of the time you don't even have to replace the bearings just wash them out with paraffin and then regrease, use a good quality grease tho as some can turn to liquid when they get hot. It's not hard to do and if you take your time and walk away when you want to set fire to it in frustration you should be fine. Time and patience are you friends , good luck and you can always ask us if you do get stuck, remember photos make it easier to rebuil

  25. its on its way! along with a headlight, speedo cable, and hopefully thats it for a while. ive been beating the crap out of the local asphalt anyway, the bike runs like a fricken swiss watch. im going down to the local bar today around 2 or 3 for "bike night"....i generally win, and generally with a different vintage honda, suzuki, or yamaha every time. the harley guys effing hate me. its pretty much the pride of my life.

  26. Hi Jed, The website cmsnl.com has parts lists and diagrams of all bikes, when you select an item it also tells you what other bikes share the same part number, might be useful to you. Depends how desperate you are for them, I've just looked on ebay and there are 2 front wheels and 3 rear wheels available for the IR7, i appreciate they are in Germany. All around the £140 plus p&p mark. I've bought difficult to obtain parts for my DT from France and Germany in the past from ebay, never had a problem. Hope this helps.

  27. Fraid not me this year :( Just had my defib fitted last week and I can't drive or ride for a month. But as always have fun those who do go. Had 2 outings on the bike last year! and only one this year so far but as soon as I can I'm heading out to get some miles in. See you all soon I hope and stay safe.

  33. the Blue flame cans caught my eye too. i remember spending a few weeks wages on a Allspeed exhaust for my little 2 stroke back in the day. looked nice but i dont think it made the bike any faster... nor did ramming a bar down the center of the original pipe.

  39. Woah, woah, woah, woah..! Chances are that if you had a cracked calliper, you'd know about it! It sounds to me like your bleed nipple is blocked. It's fairly normal for air/fluid to come out of the threads... 1/ Don't crack it open quite as far, it's only supposed to be cracked enough to let air out then nipped up again quick. 2/ Buy a new bleed nipple (I'm pretty sure they all have the same threads on them...). Out of curiosity, how are you bleeding the brakes? Are you: a/ Doing it the old fashioned way and using the lever? b/ Using a vacuum bleed

  43. had another play today, the bikes now running properly. it was my incompetence that caused the problem. the plugs come preset by NGK. i misread the feeler gauge and set the gap to 0.2mm. set the gap to 0.6mm and bikes running properly. i am now a happy bunny. thanks for all the help folks just need some good weather now so i can go out and play.
