  1. its easy once you've built up the courage to do it. first thing to do is take the fairing panel off,then loosen the bolt that the crash bung is going to replace.paint the end of the bolt with some paint that doesnt dry too quickly like household gloss then replace the fairing panel.next bits a bit fiddly,get your hand behind the fairing and unscrew the bolt till it touches and marks the fairing.take the fairing off and drill a small ( 2-3mm) hole through the fairing in the middle of the mark.(this is where my engineering apprenticeship comes in,measure twice cut once) put the panel back on and look through the pilot hole to make sure everything lines up.finally remove the panel again and drill through from the outside to the inside with a hole saw,make sure you have the hole saw spinning quite fast and dont force it through ,let it cut its way through.trim the edges of the hole up with a stanley knife and away you go. done it a few times and every time it's certainly stressful but when you do it you wonder what you were panicking about the reason you dont go from the inside is if there are any stickers on the outside where your drilling your likely to rip them as the saw breaks through

  9. Why does it cost more to insure an 8 year old diesel Rover than a 4 year old Ducati 1098? F d if I know..
  10. theyve got a pretty good reputation for servicing around these parts.I know a few people who take their bikes there regularly.
  11. shouldnt take long that, lick of paint,couple of nuts and bolts and away you go.
  12. insurance companies have only been like this since they started doing their business over the phone or on the internet. In the good old days when you could reach across a counter and shake somebody warmly by the throat you never seemed to have any problems with them.
