  1. best to coat the bike (not the brakes) acf50 or i have scott oil 365 it'll  keep corrosion away and protect electrics too.

    If corrosion has got under the all coating, then it needs to come off, no other way. just use peeks or if its really bad, solvo autosol

    Hi drewpy 

    it’s all been cleaned out and yes I have fitted an inline filter. I might go up a size on the pilot jet and see if it has any effect. But the pick up is excellent 

    I have found out you can change the crank seals with the engine in the bike so may do as a precaution.

    thanks for the reply 

    I remember when I did the Gilera , i had plethora of pilot and mains jets. and just kept swapping till I hit the right combo
    Also the height of the mains needle makes a difference 

  3. crank seals will have hardened a bit, but as its fine when warm, I would think that's fine.

    Could be a bit of crap in the carb pilot system for low running.
    was the bike stored with the carb and tank dry? was there a fuel filter fitted?

  4. its 4 stroking lower down, if you've pushed the power further up the rev range, that's where you need to stay.


    You can't have more power and expect it to perform all throughout the rev range, its a compromise.


    have you tuned your power band into when the rollers bite?

  5. Don't know the thunder cat per se, but there could be up to 3 spacers.

    1 twixt left sprocket carrier and swing arm

    1 fits inside the left bearing between sprocket carrier and left hub bearing, looks like a top hat and most peeps throw these away when renewing the bearing as it is drifted into it.

    1 in-between the hub bearings

    maybe 1 right side which usually is the calliper mount

  6. Two wives decided on a girlie night out. On the way home they needed a pee and nipped into a graveyard.

    Then they realised that they didn't have any wipes to finish up, so the first one used her knickers, and the second one found a wreath and used that.

    The next day one husband rang the other and said 'No more girlie nights out, mine came home with no knickers on'.

    The other said, 'Well if you think that's bad mine came home with a card in her crack that said 'From all of us at the fire station - we'll never forget you.''
