  1. Morning, i am just about to buy a Shark shkmsm2050k stereo for my bike, anyone know how long i can run a 100 watt amp for while parked up before the battery heads south and leave,s me stranded.
  2. off question mate, when i was young bloke, there used to be a bike dealer in bevios valley, southampton, called alec bennets, he had the first xs1100. i ever saw,burgundy and cream, what a tool,i used to dream about it, out of my reach financially,some years later a hoddy that worked for me turned up on site on one,and he let me ride it, loverly old chugg, never did own one though,women got a grip on me, and so it goes. enjoy it mate.

    morning everyone

    mate , i worked in some weird places all around the globe . poland ,cold as you can bare, tuncurry nsw, hot dont get a look in, met some good people, watched folks turn scrap into transport,sometimes it was damn near water into wine, there was one thing that stuck, if you get off your ass, and go head down, youre in with a chance.
  4. bead sealer is the crux of my question, common sense tells me to grind the corrosion off( i havnt taken the wheels of yet, so i dont know what i am going to find)clean up,and put the old tyres back on, (loads of tread), but do i use a bead sealer, and if so, which one ? or do i put a tube in ? the last bloke reckoned the green sealer caused the corrosion. and as that other bloke said, doing the same thing repeatedly, and expecting a different result is bordering on stupidity. all comments welcome, thanks. mick.
  5. figured that was right, but i never had a heavy bike before, and im off for a bit of a longish ride, wasnt sure,thanks to all, mick.
  6. SOLID ALLOY RIMS, IM THINKING THAT PUTTING A TUBE IN AFTER I CLEAN UP THE RIM SHOULD BE GOOD,WHAT DO YOU THINK ? ITS AN OLD FARTS BIKE, AND IM ALL DONE LOOKING FOR MEDALS. CHEERS MATE, MICK.
  7. THANKS FOR THE REPLY MATE,THE BLOKE WHO DIDNT DO THE JOB PROPERLY RECKONS GREEN TYRE SEALANT CAUSED CORROSION, I WAS THINKING THE SAME AS YOU, GRIND THE SHIT OUT OF IT AND IT WOULD BE OK, IS THERE A TYRE SEALER THAT WONT DO THAT ? CHEERS , MICK.

    morning everyone

    yo,ll be right in a minute, when the local council lets everyone put up an extension that blocks out the neighbours daylight so that they can lodge a few more polish builders.
  13. i been asked to do this, my name is mick, i am a 56yr old retired builder, i ride a vn1500 custom and a drz400, which i strap to the back of my motorhome, im fat and ugly, with 8 teeth, and rich, sorry, but thats how it is, cheers, mick.
  14. i just bought a vn 1500, the front tyre is leaking, the previous owner paid £73.93 to totally motorcycle in plymouth to rectify it, they didnt. theyre report said,: both rims corroded badly, mainly the front,green tyre sealant in rear which caused corrosion, front very dry and flakey on the inside: i wonder why they let that bloke ride that bike away, knowing that his tyres would be deflating, when i test rode it, because the tyres are so solid i never noticed that they had almost no air in them, luckily i did before i got to the first bend. can i clean up the inside of the rim with a power wire brush/ grinder without losing the seal,and what are the options for cleaning/polishing the outer rim ?all and any advice/ comments welcome, thanks, mick
