  1. Yeh pal I'm 31 so age isn't a problem! They have tightened the laws right up and unfortunately and the choice of bikes for the restricted license are slim unless you restrict the bike and with needing a certificate its more hassle All I wanted was a drz400 nothing fast so I was going for the restricted license but what's the point unless your not old enough for full license? Government are good at spoiling everything that's good the useless twats Ken
  2. Laverda jota 1000 and maybe a Ducati 848 evo Jota as my old man has one would like to go out to a couple of biker bashes with him. The 848 evo because there sexy as fook ( I like the 916 but there not as reliable) Don't really need to be a millionaire to own them bikes but I am a modest person Ken
  3. Always choke on for few mins when first started up!! New plug as dt502001 suggested Ken
  4. I have heard the crank seals can effect the idle and make the engine smoke a lot! Not going to be a nice job and I have also got to do this Ken
  5. To get your desired bike within the regs you would need a certificate from garage and I think there will be certain garages that will do it I was looking at doing A2 license but its become that more difficult to choose a bike within the regs ill go for the full license I was looking at the drz400 and that would need restricting even though its only a couple of hp over regs on A2 never mind the bigger wrf's Ken
  6. Rings had snapped its not in best of shape and I think the bottom end needs stripping Gutted Ken
  7. I just bought a standard bike cigarette lighter socket and a adapter that fits in for USB power!! I thought being able to use 2 different kind of plugs in 1 socket would be better. There handy along with my iPhone and water proof satnav/phone holder incase I loose power in the middle of no where! Ken
  8. Nah the other ring was cracked so its not creating a seal with cylinder!!! One if the rings has gone and nicked exhaust port and that has prob taken out the second ring.... I'm surprised there isn't any scoring or gouges on cylinder liner but there is nothing apart from the nick. Cheers Ken
  9. I have a new piston an rings along with a topend gasket kit!!! What is the chances that the broken rings won't cause any problems?? Ken
  10. I really don't have time for an engine strip I think I might have to sell her on with problem. Working 12hrs a day and also DIY in house on weekend..... Bloody hell-my reliable dt has let me down (Pm sent to nev) Cheers Ken
  11. What do you think parts of a ring could do if they have getting into bottom end? Is it worth getting a magnetic sump plug?? To say I'm fucking gutted is an understatement, also the bolts with the hole in middle used for the heating pipes from head to carb I've snapped one. Any ideas where to look for one? Cheers Ken
  12. Do you think I could get away with a quick stint on my trusty dremel?? I'm a little gutted as I wanted it sold soonish there's a nice honda ns125 I wouldn't mind taking a look at, comes with a full spare bike (same model just needs painted up and clutch looking at for both for £1.2k) Ken
  13. Well got the cylinder and head off her!! Doesn't look nice. First glance the head looked fine apart from small dents all over the detention surface. Then the cylinder didn't have any obvious marks or chunks missing but the piston had 1/4 of a ring missing and a few bits lying in bottom end! Also the small end baring where stuff as hell, I had to get a pin and hammer to knock out pin. I've test fitted a new piston and I find when I push in the piston there is resistance at the top of exhaust port so I'm guessing that's not good. Would it be worth getting the dremel out and tryin to smooth over the edge of exhaust port? Cheers Ken
