Re: Good RT review

I had a new one last week as a loan bike while my 2013 camhead was in Allan Jeffries for a service. I agree, it’s a lovely bike...... but there is one major disadvantage which is why I won’t be considering one: luggage and storage capacity. When my wife and I I go to mainland Europe for a couple of ...

Re: R100R rear wheel hub cover

Not being funny, but could it be an aluminium saucepan lid?
Bit of a letdown in the perceived improvements stakes if it were, though😀

Re: Cleaning materials

Hi Rae,
I haven’t used Mucoff so I can’t make a direct comparison but the Demon clean has just done a great job on my bike after 178 miles of muddy Yorkshire back lanes yesterday! I can recommend it.

Cleaning materials

Last bottles of Demon Clean dirt shifter and wheel cleaner that I bought from Halfords were £8.60 each.
Just been into Wilco, same items £4.50 each, and not on an offer as far as I could see - normal Wilco price!

Re: Lunch Meet October 20th Beadlam Grange Farmshop

It looks as if I was the only one going so I’ll give it a miss too.
I’ll echo Peter and say that I’m looking forward to the first meeting next year and wish everyone all the best until then.

I must admit that I don’t mind a properly modified airhead where the improvements are to appearance or performance/handling/braking but most of the current crop don’t fall into that category.

Re: Cafe racer

I would argue that the original cafe racers paid homage to the racing bikes of the sixties. Visual clues were dropped or ‘clip-on’ handlebars, an alloy or fibreglass tank modelled on a Manx Norton or BSA Gold star racing tank, rear set footrests, swept-back exhaust pies with Gold Star type or megaph...

Re: MOT exemption - change of form

Paragraph ‘r’ on page one seems to remove motorcycles from the wording which follows and motorcycles do not seem to be re-introduced anywhere else except in the last paragraph where motorcycles are included but the ‘general appearance’ reference seems only to include a ‘kit of parts’ or ‘old parts’ ...

I think the front wheel has the strengthened spokes but I would be concerned about the amount of wear there seems to be on the rear drum

If you bought it with a credit card you should be able to get a refund through the card issuer. Give them a call.

Motobatt terminal cover

I was concerned about the lack of a cover to the positive terminal on my Motobatt battery. By screwing an extra nut onto the terminal post, modifying an old ‘Exide’ type cover and securing it with a shortened number-plate screw, the problem was solved.

Re: Rigid brake lines (with stainless fittings).

Do you want stainless pipes as well as fittings or just stainless fittings on normal pipes? If you want stainless pipes as well, I’m not sure but isn’t stainless steel susceptible to vibration-induced cracking? Not what is needed on rigid brake pipes. I understand that K1100 exhausts can suffer from...

Re: Painting a 1957 R50.....

I think somewhere on the page it says that the bikes could be specially ordered in any colour that was used on the BMW cars at that time.
