Re: K1100rs rear diff

Not that easy I'm afraid. WEith a .jpg, the size of the file (which is what's important) varies with the number of colours, tints & etc. You just need to keep reducing the size until the file is small enough to do the job. The JPG of the stately home (not mine I might add) in my last post is 400 pix...

Re: K1100rs rear diff

The site will accept .jpgs and .pngs but not.bmps. Size is critical, your images needs to be less than about 250k. I have found that resizing using the windows 10 image resize app does something to the file that the forum doesn't like. Never got to the bottom of that one. Dunalastair 2.png Film g 02...

Re: Motorcycle airbag jeans

Looking at the 'suggested' videos, I see 'Airbag Jeans', 'Airbag Jackets', 'Airbag Helmets'... next it'll be 'Airbag Gloves' and 'Airbag Boots'... and all with vastly inflated (Hah) claims about how they would save your life. I for one would start to get worried about the amount of High Exposives I ...

Re: Date of manufacture

Does anyone know how I can find the taxation class? I sent off the change to historic form along with the V5 about five weeks ago (IIRC) and have heard nothing. I was hoping to stick it on the road but without the V5 that they insisted on having back, I cannot find if the tax class has changed to h...

Oh How that propshaft is going to eat UJs and vibrate happily along with the standard Knobbly tyres ! :( Unless the rear suspension has a lot more 'sag' than it looks like, the angularity of the drive shaft isn't going to help the life of the prop shaft either... but I don't think it would be disqu...

Re: RT 100 Factory pop out spot and fog light fitting

Strangely, in Heritage Railway circles, the term is 'Rivet Counter'. The sort of person who will examine rivets in a panel on a preserved engine and wax lyrical when it doesn't exactly match the number of rivets on an ex-works locomotive. I think it's a better description. I don't think I've ever go...

Re: Fuel tanks

My understanding (such as it is) is that the larger 22 litre tank was standard when the /5 series was introduced in 1969 but, by 1972 with the introduction of the 'Toaster' series, an 18 litre tank with removable chrome side panels was introduced. This type of tank was only applicable to the late /5...

Re: RT 100 Factory pop out spot and fog light fitting

I apologise, I do tend to get a bit verbose, however there is a tendency with airheads (and to be fair most other enthusiams) for people to get very polarised about what is 'right' and what is 'wrong' for any individual machine or modeland I think it's important to realise that there are very few in...
