  2. Should have used a mirror to put the seal on, then it would be fine Glad it's all sorted now
  3. welcome to the mad house Florider
  4. Never mind, think of the kudos of doing it yourself? to take bearings out , weld a plate over inner bearing then hit from other side. The welding will heat the bearing too to dislodge any corrosion

    New Rear mono shock.

    Lucky you. Hope they are linear front springs as they perform better than progressive. to top it off, get a specialist to set the suspension up for your riding style and weight, only about £40

    have you tried a search? I think "upyours" had on at one time
  11. the carb orifices are very small on these bikes and gum up too easily. thorough cleaning with ultrasonics and air should get them serviceable. you might even need to do it twice!!
  12. I use Aldi bags in my 36L Givi panniers. Fit great and are waterproof
  13. that's no good, I assume it was an RID device to enable the ignition? even cars with this are being stolen due to the scumbags cloning them from your front door
