    YOC 2019 Meet

    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.

    They havent come back to me about whether they will accomodate a group of motorcyclists. I will chase them.

    YOC 2019 Meet

    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.

    YOC 2019 Meet

    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.

    YOC 2019 Meet

    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.

    YOC 2019 Meet

    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.

    XT600 1998 Intake

    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.

    XT600 1998 Intake

    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.

    Bolton's burning

    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.

    Does anyone have a Spy 5000m Motorcycle Motorbike Alarm??

    Isnt the Spy range of alarms just a badged chinese generic alarm with some flash looking keyfobs? similar spec'd chinese alarms are available for less than £20. They are useful for alerting you if someone tampers with the bike. They do work and are an okay deterrent for less savvy thieves. However generally with chinese alarms the 'ecu' is rarely properly ingress protected and the wiring loom isnt the best. If you do install one, do not install the remote start/immobiliser bypass, not only is the insurance company unlikely payout if your bike gets nicked, but it requires the bikes loom to be hacked and the probability of previously mentioned fragile design lends itself to a FTP. Also be aware that cheap alarms, diy installed rarely qualify for insurance discounts. If you must have an alarm [high risk area or other vulnerability] go for a brand/model that will get a real insurance discount and uses the oem alarm loom link. Personally if i had to have one i go for the Yamaha-approved unit and pay the premium to have the franchise dealer fit it or go for a meta and find your local agent. Expect to pay a decent wedge either way.

    Thundercat Running Temperature

    Going into the red is definitely the quick way to omghgf or worse a banana shaped head. A range of kawasaki thermoswitches fit and some kick in at 94/95 unlike the yam stuff that starts at 99.

    MT09 2015 advice

    No one has responded, so I thought I would. As with all Euro3,4 bikes, the later the version generally the better the fuelling. I rode an early Mt09 and it only surged with very light throttle at steady speed. I didnt find it intrusive. Whatever you buy, haggle hard as there are lots of used ones for sale. many early ones are running better rear shocks, so maybe worth looking for one with the upgrade but not paying [much] extra. They are well made.
