  1. Transalp 600 oil pressure boss crack

    Hi, I've just seen the boss which holds the oil pressure sensor has a crack, probably from over-tightening the sensor. I'm thinking of drilling a channel on the length of the crack, clean it and put some Al epoxy then some tiger seal at the end of the boss just as a sealant. I don't know...

  6. Living Dolls

    On Monday 6th January, Channel 4 aired one of the weirdest programmes I've ever seen. It was a hot topic at work for quite a few days, and I just wondered if any of you normal XRV folk had seen it, and what you thought? It's still on 4OD for those of you that have eaten and fully digested your...
