  1. use gearingcommander.com to map specific combos and see if a different length of chain is required.
  2. no deposit - pay on the weekend
  3. We can do drop off, ive done it countless times on ride outs with wiltshire bikers, 4 counties, bristol motorcycle group, DoC et al.

  5. Okay campsite sorted! sorry for the delay, not all sites want bikers [not Elsie riding loons anyway]. But we are booked in now: http://www.talybontfarmcamping.co.uk/#about Hopefully this is okay with everyone. This is the nearest B&B for the wealthy: https://www.google.com/travel/hotels/Talybont-On-Usk/entity/CgsIqNeuktPZw-rrARAB?g2lb=4207875%2C4208993%2C4223281%2C4240601%2C4242081%2C4242898%2C4238563%2C4244078%2C4244566&hl=en&gl=uk&un=0&q=b%20and%20b%20talybont&rp=OAJAAEgC&ictx=1&ved=2ahUKEwjN46yu_YjhAhU1rHEKHVbZBWwQvS4wAHoECAIQGg&hrf=CgUIlgEQACIDR0JQKhYKBwjjDxADGBISBwjjDxADGBMYASgAWAGSAQIgAQ&tcfs=EhoaGAoKMjAxOS0wMy0xOBIKMjAxOS0wMy0xOVIA 21st and 22nd June I have provisionally booked 8 spaces and they were fine with that.

    YOC Ride 3000

    3000 in a week, surely? bloody soft as shite northerners, get on your bikes ya pansies....
  7. yes, it will happen. i just havent had chance to confirm the digs. the dates are solid.
  8. Go for it. those dates are fixed and it will be sorted with camp and neighbouring digs somewhere in or around the Black Mountains.
  9. Hi All, The campsite and B&B at Pandy didnt come back to me. Anyway the next best place is the Llanthony Camp site. There is a B&B just up the road at the Half Moon. Llanthony, if you dont know, is in the Vale of Ewyas. Which is stunning. At the top end is the Gospel pass - the highest paved pass in Wales. Ill talk to them and see what they say, i dont anticipate any problems as it is basic camping.
  10. They havent come back to me about whether they will accomodate a group of motorcyclists. I will chase them.
  11. sorry i havent spoke to them yet. ofsted made an appearance where i work, and i was a little tied down by them.
  12. i talk to them and see what they say. im sure booking for camping will be fine, it'll just be B&B that may be an issue. there are also places around Bwlch, Brecon and Hay-o-W ill look at.
  13. okay, so ive been thinking about this,, I actually quite fancy some camping too, so what im suggesting is rather than stay at my place, we stay at a pub/campsite/B&B in Monmouthshire; there is one close to the border with England. Im going to call them next week and see if they like bikers. It's the rising sun in pandy fyi.
  14. 22nd and 23rd June? Let me know if these dates are good or bad for you all.
  15. Sorry ive been away with work. Ill work out a date/
  16. it's usually about a dozen of us. oh and Kev.
  17. yeah it's fine. i live at the far end.
  18. A weekend in June [later in the month] is the best time, certainly this years meet in June trumped septembers in Yorks. Longer days and warmer too. I also live in a weird slightly isolated space, so we could maybe have a saturday night BBQ with outside music and over-revved 2 strokes.
  19. Im open to hosting an 2019 meet at Chez pilninggas (or as I call it the Shite-house). I'm in Monmouthshire. I have a few rooms, so not everyone would need to camp, but there is space outside for quite a few tents. There is even a B&B at the end of the road for anyone who doesnt want my cooking. I would be happy to lead a ride into mountainous wales on Day 1 (saturday); the Brecon Beacons are 25 miles away and offer a full day of twists and turns and lead a ride back up north via the the Marches on Day 2 (via either The Malverns or upto OK Diner on the A49- the Northern Contigent can ride up home from there), so we could all go our own ways after lunch. Let me know if that works.
  20. oh yeah, looks like an intake resonance box or balancer. I'd try running it with the connectors blocked off. If that doesnt work well maybe a link pipe? You could make something to imitate it.
  21. The airbox is the [usually plastic] housing that contains the airfilter. Typically it'll have an access panel to get to the filter or can be separated to get to the filter. It has two orifices [oo-er] one that lets free air in and one that connects to the carburettor or throttle body. edit: Hang on the manifold shouldnt connect directly to the airbox. there should be a carb in between. Here: https://www.fowlersparts.co.uk/parts/4155904/xt600e-4pt7-1998-050-a/intake From engine: manifolds, then twin carbs, then tubes, then airbox.
  22. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lancashire-44671875 I bet that was a stray spark of 2 stroke carbon out of the spannies of Kev's chameleon.
