  4. when you tighten a nut up because of the form of the thread you are effectively trying to spread the nut apart. this requires the material to have a good tensile strength and Aluminium has nowhere near the same tensile strength as steel or titanium so these nuts can and do sometimes crack.
  5. Not this one Dave. I'm off on holiday in a couple of weeks. The next one I'll be going to will be the last round at Brands in October.
  6. have fun Dave its a fantastic track to watch at, you got to go to the top of Clay hill and watch the superbikes come over the top at 140mph cranked over with the front wheel 2 feet in the air.Then into the woods to Druids to keep an eye out for Aaron Zannotti getting his elbow down. And say hello to Norma de Bidaph for me.are you camping?
  7. free postage this weekend only as well http://www.mandp.co.uk/productinfo/903212/Tyres/Tyre-Offers/Metzeler?utm_source=010814&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=metzeler-m3
  8. got a shock off a 954 blade if that will fit
  9. It would be much cheaper and you would get better results having the ECU flash tuned. Had my R1 done a few weeks ago, they put it on a rolling road and set the bike up properly rather than just download a generic fueling map. They can also disable the fuel cut off on a closed throttle to stop the jerkiness when you open it again. Cost me £180.
  10. I fitted it to one of my bikes, its dead easy to fit and it didnt tear/go yellow/show marks or do anything other than do what it was supposed to do and protect the paintwork.
  11. Looks like it could be a good day. Free admission as well http://www.kawasaki.co.uk/en/news/world_of_kawasaki?Uid=08F2CVFdClpcWFgJX1sNXA5RXwpaWQ5fDl1fCgteWwwKCVA
  12. I've got white in my Alpine Stars leathers, no matter how hard you try they will eventually end up looking grubby, just one of those things. I use washing up liquid in water, whisk it up to mafe a foam and use the foam with a soft brush then wipe it off with a cloth, dont use the water just the bubbles, works a treat.
  13. usually takes us about 3 hours to get to Bowness and your an hour further south than us and Hartside is even further north than that. the only way you could do it imo is a LOOOOONG slog up the M6.
  14. Nearly three weeks ago now I was out up the cat n fiddle, took the left turn to congleton, went through the specs camera then started to up the pace a bit thinking I was ok. Couple of miles later I saw the other specs camera on the other side of the road discreetly placed in the trees so I slammed on and stopped just past the camera. Been panicking now expecting the letter on the doormat but so far (18 days) its not turned up. Fingers crossed.
  15. still waiting for it to stop raining here
  16. That will make a cracking track bike. Your going to get overtaken on the straights but you'll find bigger bikes getting in your way in the corners.
  17. any glasses wearers out there? I wear them around the house and recently its been getting to the point where I ought to wear them on the bike. I have a pair I use in the car but theyre an old prescription so I am looking at getting some new cheap ones. Question is the ones I wear in the house have an anti dazzle coating on them ( got them for driving in originally and just leave them in the house now) which works pretty well and was just wondering if its worth having on ones I would wear on the bike? I dont want to use the house glasses on the bike because they cost quite a bit and I dont want to risk a flying stone damaging them.
  18. Its a lot easier than getting the front up in the air for one and also you lose ground clearance if you drop the forks but gain it if you raise the rear. Another thing to think about, if you lower the front the bike will sit more upright on the sidestand and be much easier to knock over.
  19. try putting a washer or two under the rear shock mount rather than lowering the forks.
  20. sorry you took time off Mike , think I have talked myself out of it now with the lack of interest ,weather, and 80 miles of A1 A46 to Newark A1153/A156 to Gainsborough A631 to Beckingham A161 to Howden A63 to Selby B1223 to Sherburn
  21. I am 6ft 4in tall , 12 stone and have to beat the birds off with a big stick ,so I think you will know who I am you must have got a shorter fatter brother that I've met then
  22. http://www.toolsave.co.uk/product-draper-30838-240mm-motorcycle-brake-piston-pliers-dra04422 dont know when I will use them but theyre in my toolbox ready and waiting, and I got them from this shops ebay store for £12.85.
  23. He's not gone bust he's retireing and he cant leave it to his sons because theyre a pair of pillocks.
