Re: Eye test

Not grammar, I know, but there’sthe old debate about ‘tyre’ and ‘tire’, which I believe was originally ‘tier’ i.e. the steel band which tied a wooden wheel together.

Re: Bridgestone BT45 3.25-19 Unavailable

The second n link I gave should bring up the list of available sizes. If not, the op can look up the Openeo site. They do seem to be available

Re: Bridgestone BT45 3.25-19 Unavailable

The link works for me, shows Openeo selling the tyre for £76

Going back to the original query, they are also the last item on this page.

Re: Carole Nash AXA breakdown cover

The big advantage of the AA (don’t know about the RAC) is that if you have a personal membership as opposed to the one vehicle policy, then you are covered in or or any vehicle, I think up to 3.5 tonnes. Even if you are a passenger in a non-member’s vehicle which has a problem you can call them out.

I’m not really, but my brother-in-law worked for the Victory division of Polaris until he retired and my nephew works for Polaris ATV so I take an interest😀

Re: RIP HD

Victory didn’t actually go under. The name was introduced by Polaris Industries for their new range of motorcycles to stand alongside their snowmobiles and ATVs in 1998. In 2011, Polaris were able to acquire the Indian brand name and so dropped the Victory brand and started producing motorcycles bea...

Re: What the heck is this in the oil?

‘Short trips’ are the cause. The engine doesn’t get hot enough to drive off condensation in the crankcase etc so the oil absorbs it and becomes emulsified. A good long run to get the engine really hot will clear it. It may be best to clean out all you can and change the oil first, though. On some ol...

Re: Substitute for Hylomar

I didn’t realise there was a gasket on the R80, there isn’t on my K75, hence the silicone sealant. Personally, I wouldn’t use silicon if there is a gasket, so ignore my suggestion🙂

Re: Substitute for Hylomar

Just used Loctite SI5980 on the sump plate of my K75. It’s stated to be suitable for that application and seems fine to me. Got it from Halfords.

Re: Period Videos

A great bit of nostalgia indeed. Beverley is our favourite local town for shopping. The shopping street is now pedestrianised - a great improvement when you see the parked cars and narrow footpaths. The brick archway early in the film is one of the old town gates called Beverley Bar and, if you look...

Re: Anyone know my bike?

Thanks for that Rob. It is useful that it lists the locations of the MOT tests as well as the date and pass/fail status.
The info goes back to 2015 and it seems to have spent all but the last two years in Scotland with most MOTs in the Edinburgh/borders area with one in Shetland

Re: Motorcycle storage

I SORN my R1200 and K1100 generally from October to April every year and have never had a problem with fuel going off.I just park them up after a good run and change the oil/filter and they are good to go next spring.

Re: High screens for R1100RT

I used one of these on my R1150RT and have one on my current 1200RT. A bit pricey but I’ve not found a better screen.
