    MoT Prep

    Prepped my boys Virago in readiness for an MoT (booked for tomorrow,) He started a new job in April and has been on training so no time for bikes. His bike has sat in the shed since last year. Replaced front brake fluid and cleaned and adjusted rear drum brake. checked all lights work, checked spokes on wheels and fork seals. Didn't check steering head bearings as no centre stand and I was on my own but took it a wee run and they felt fine, so should be good to go tomorrow
  8. Brilliant mate. Welcome to the nuthouse. Start a new thread in the projects section and keep us all informed with progress, oh and we love pictures
  9. I recently used a guy, John Adams 07951 541 477 £150 to transport the bike from Dorset to Glasgow (ish). It took a few days, but I was happy with the service and price
  10. Funnily enough, that is my weekend off, so of it cam be sorted for then I will endeavour to make it
  11. Yes please, and I have a standard T160 on offer
  12. Look at the jetting. What colour are your plugs If it is after market pipes it may need rejetted. This would cause bogging down and could cause the blueing. So you can either contact the zorst manufacturer and see what main jets they recommend, or faff about changing jets...or take it to a rolling road / dyno who should have a collection of jets and get it set up properly

    Finners iPhone fix

    I have had that advice my whole life mate......"Don't stick that in there" has been the bane of my life
  14. Good Intro bud, welcome to the nuthouse
  15. Indeed matey, I was hmming and hawing about setting off and then thought fk it. As I said 10 miles in it dried up and as you see was a sunny return journey
  16. Welcome to the nuthouse mate. My boy has a 535, and has never expressed an interest in getting rid, even tho he doesn't use it much these days
  17. Similar happened to me back in the day. I was heading down to Scarborough with the missus on the back and about 5 miles from my digs the cable separated from the barrel. I managed to get enough free cable to wrap and tape it round a small twig an taped that to the throttle grip. That fix took me about all week and my return trip home before I got a new one. Not nice tho'
  18. Been and gone. The day started like all others, pissing down with rain, then I got told as the wife is working, I had to run my daughter to the airport (look out Magaa) and then take my youngest to work, so I never got a start until around 1130hrs. Kicks the auld bike over and heads off into the gloom, thinking 50 fkn miles of this, I must be stupid, but after about 10 miles the rain cleared away, the roads dried up and I had a great run down. The Trident was going so smooth I had to keep reminding myself to slow down as it's a 44yr old bike. About 5 miles from my destination, I saw a guy pulled over at the side of the road, so pulled in to see if there was owt I could do. He was on a V Max (full power) and it had just glided to a stop. Plenty fuel and power to the ignition and lights but no sparx. Stood with him for about 10 mins whilst he got through to RAC then headed off. I arrived at Ayr just over an hour after leaving my house and some bikes were leaving already, including catching a glimpse of a Vincent Black Shadow. In I went and had a look around then introduced myself to some blokes from the tr3oc. I took a few pics but apologies as they are weighted in the Triumph dept I then returned by the back roads and took a few of my Trident Edit// I think the two air cooled RDs were last years show (different cover on the carpet) Oh and just realised you can do multiple uploads from postimage, so yeaaa
  19. Well Bipps (and Drewps, although I don't quite get the xmas gag) shamed me and today I willingly went out in the pouring rain to head down to Ayr for the Classic Bike show. Glad I did as the rain eased off after about 10 miles and I had a great run out on my Triple. Not many Yams there, a couple of obligatory elsies and these two. I think this may have been last year, but it just downloaded with the other pics
  20. You shame me bipps, I won't willingly go out in anything over a 40% chance of rain
  21. Welcome to the club mate. You can load pics by using Postimage.org. Once signed up and uploaded a pic to your new account, you click on the share button and copy the "hotlinks for forums" Copy that into your post and bobs yer aunty
  22. Yea mate is fkn sh!te. I got my Bonnie MOT'd in April and it's rained almost every day since, then I bought the Trident and by fk it's poured down....but hey ho it's Scotland what do we expect to see* *cue Basil Fawlty and herds of majestic wilderbeests
