    A cold but sunny day up here on the West Coast so nowt else for it but a wee run out on my Hinckley Bonnie. Went my usual (favourite) route up over some minor roads and down into Largs for chips and a coffee. Rinsed the bike off on completion. If only I wan't working earlies tomorrow I'd have a couple of beers to finish off a grand day out

    She's back. Picked her up today and all is sweet. Finally got an as good as new FJ-1200 in the garage with 16.5K on the clock. Carbs done, valve clearances done, tune-up done. Parted with a few shekels to get her right but I'm sure the love will come back again soon.

    Smell the oil also " if its contaminated with fuel, the carbs need looked at, this would raise the oil level,

    About 4lts of oil Just googled it and it should be 3.7lts Did you buy it from a shop or private, I'll assume private. I would have given it back to the bloke and told him give me a call when it was fixed. The breather for the engine will probably be in the air box and overfilling with oil can cause some blowback. Now you have it, you should do an oil change ensuring you put the correct amount in. Buy a manual if you don't have one already. You can even download them of t'internet and hope you haven't blown any seals. Oh and stick an intro into the new members section. You'll get a better response that way

    I use Oregon the chainsaw 2T, oil, or Carlube, , as for the seat, see it you can unscrew the lock from the frame, , or slide the hinge pins out, .

    Don't get dragged into the 2stroke oil snobbery. Yam 2 strokes in stock trim will just about run on chip far, no im not joking. Big roller bearing mains, needle roller small ends, the engines are bomb proof if ridden/maintained right. I have been using morris semi synth 2 stroke oil (fiver a litre from Churchill motors Pattishall) for years with no problems at all. As for the seat I cannot help, last 350 I had was in the early 90's as a winter hack (yeah I know) cannot remember how to get the seat open.

    Great pics, Jimmy. Good weather at this time of year is always hard to pass up! I went out yesterday for the first time since my Europe trip. After 4,000 miles my rear end didn’t want to go anywhere near a bike seat haha! But I popped out yesterday for a Remembrance Day ride of respect. So many families came to just watch with flags and their own home made banners which was just lovely.

    Gotta take any chance to get out on two wheels. Looks like a lovely sunny day. I got about 30 miles in today, plenty of layers on so didnt get too cold, but water everywhere running down the hills and onto the roads
