  1. I agree mate. Done my time as a year round rider but stepped back a few years ago when I got caught out at work one night shift and it took me over 3hrs to ride through a blizzard to get home. I have kept my Hinckley Bonnie out the shed this winter but it has been pouring down just about every day since New Year so it's sat under it's cover
  2. The battery should sit at around 14v on the charger. Low 'gas' light...There is fuel in it? When bridging the starter, are you getting a spark when it's cranking? Are the plugs wet when you've cranked it over
  3. So does a 'how to' not come with the new loom you bought
  4. Welcome to the nuthouse bud. There are a few dt folk on here
  5. Yebutt you can have both. FB for the inane disposable and here for anything ongoing
  6. Great intro bud. We like pictures here
  7. Welcome to the forum Bob. I'm down in Gourock and Blackies through Edinburgh way
  8. Shame it's went this way, but I stuck in a joining request
  9. Not sure bud, but having done a few bikes, I would just say make sure you take plenty of pictures and notes
  10. 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
