Re: R80/R850R

Hi I had an R80R and replaced it with a R100R but looked at an 850R at the time. 100R's were dearer than 850R's. The 100R is generally better than the 80R. Sometimes I found in traffic I could not make my mind up what gear to be in on the 100 compared to the 80. IIRC the 850 R, which I have not ridd...

Re: SAE to metric conversion?

Hi
200 km to blah blah, I see it as 200 mile
I feel the same about litres and kg, but sometimes wonder why the steaks and beer fill me up so quickly -- must be the fresh air on holiday

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

Hi
Rob posted a thread about MoT rule changes that (If I understand correctly) may result in a fail if you use it. Although how a tester would know it was a LED replacement for a Halogen lamp I dont know

Re: Battery Booster

Hi
that one is similar to mine (no 12v output) it would not start a completely flat battery on an 1800 merc. Next day after 1/2 charge in merc & full charge in Lidl pack it still would not start.

Previously it has started a 1000cc car and an airhead.

Hi is that the toilet in the basement with the rickety stairs and no light? I minded the admin fee, and will still mind if we are not told upfront (Unfair contract terms?).
