  1. It's the same as mine - there is a tiny 'R' clip missing, which would hold the choke out at either full or half way. I couldn't find a replacement clip but tbh after a minute of running it doesn't need it even in winter so haven't worried about changing the whole pin.
  2. Have you checked front and rear wheel bearings? When were the chain sprockets last changed?
  3. Hi Jase! Been really busy at home - wife still not well after her broken leg in July and had to have so much time off work they let me go last week. Got time to be about on here now though [emoji3]
  4. This helped me when I had to re tap a fine M8 on my car brakes.
  5. Hi Pignapper. What have you tried so far? What are your symptoms?
  6. If the ignition barrel and the 2 wires are all you touched, are you sure the new barrel is in good order?
  7. Serious withdrawal now! Gutted I can't make it, but have managed to pick up some forks/ wheel / disc etc from eBay (camping near Chester with my boys to give them something to remember this school hols for) so can swap all back to the donor bike. Next year!
  8. I've got an SR125 without forks!
  9. Mate of mine has just done this and said its the hardest road challenge he's done. I bought a pushbike the other week, first time out on it I did 6 miles. 20 years ago I'd have done it in 20 minutes. This time nearly an hour and I was f*cked! So Good luck Paul and hats off to you!
  10. Well her Nan died while she was in hospital, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this was bad enough for the 3rd! But it hurts!
  11. Really not that bad - forks, dented petrol tank and a bent mirror!
  12. Cheers guys. That was my gut feeling!
  13. While looking for replacement forks for my SR, I came across a company who straighten forks. Not sure if this would be safe? Anybody have any experience of this - on a strict budget but I don't want to take a silly risk for the sake of eating beans on toast for a month!
  14. Thanks Yes I do - almost ready for its mot. Best put that on hold now! Thanks! I'm ok - a little achy this morning and a couple of good bruises to my inner thighs. Can't complain too much as the wife was walking round on a broken hip for a fortnight! Could have been a whole lot worse, it was a corner that I have used everyday for the last 16 yrs and even in the car I go slow because it's a road used by boy racers! Cheers mate - think I may struggle to make them fit though!
  15. Speaking with my good lady this morning and she reckons she'll do fine and I should go [emoji2] Go out this afternoon and had a head on with a bmw [emoji20] Bent forks and a couple of minor aesthetics. Beyond straightening I think! Slight damage to the beemer's bonnet and a couple of bruises to me - thankfully he was going slow as I was on his side of the road. I came round a blind corner and faced with a mum and dad out on push bikes with their nippers, on the road with a bike on its seat so I swung over to miss them and then saw the car.
  16. Even more so now she has metal work to back her up!
  17. Hell no - she was walking round on it for a week; from now on I do whatever she says!!
  18. Cheers mate. She's almost weight bearing now with the help of a frame. Still in some pain, but considering she fractured 2 weeks ago and caused more damage, doing really well! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Like your style!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk If only - but I think a 6 yr old and an 11 yr old may not be the best choice lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Really not sure if I can make it this year. Had time booked off, new pop up tent, new sleeping bag (very compact) extra cog in the front sprocket hoping to beat last years mph, new camchain and minor electrics issue sorted. But the wife had a fractured hip which was operated on yesterday and with it now being school holidays I'm having to take a shed load of annual leave [emoji20] I was proper looking forward to it and now looks like I'll be spending much of the next few weeks hunting for Poke balls!

  21. Hi martynball Mine sticks well at 70, not tried taking speed bumps that quick though! Plenty of potholes and uneven carriageways round here though. I always use the tether 'just in case' but not actually needed it yet.
