I've had to strip down my engine to the bare bones to clean out the remains of a piston. I took out the gearshift shaft and cleaned up the three forks paying careful attention to what sequence they were on the shaft. What I didn't do was to notice which way round they go :(. The...

My rd04 had the usual melted red connector on top of the solenoid. I should've taken a photo before hand but.....I had to destroy the connector to get the 4 wires out. While I was in the process of being extra careful to hold the wires as they came out, I fumbled...

Am looking at getting a set of calipers to replace the OEM items. Maybe off a bandit or VFR (due to quantity available etc) but am not sure if I need to be careful of spacing to the spokes, and the master cylinder ratio etc 13mm/12mm etc.
Anybody done this?

So the story that's all over the news is the BBC which, as far as I can see, is guilty of being too careful ( plus an inability to explain it), followed by behaving in a seriously unsubtle way but without naming any of the senior politicians on the web.
