    I have been running mine, testing etc, with out any fairing or sump guard and I like it Bike still gets amazingly hot and I can feel more heat on my legs than before I am hoping that's due to more airflow wafting around the engine I am thinking a simple nose cone cowl only would be ample for...

    Hmm, Just debaffled my Vigor using a 64mm holesaw, not been able to do the 175 carb jet mod today...... But gave her a quick run out. Unsure if I like the loudness? Will get round to doing the 175 jet next week but think I may get some DB killers made, not quite sure yet. Had straight throughs...
  4. Dominator / FMX

    Last year a new frog was identified and names after Prince Charles. I liked the frog and stuck the picture on my 'inspiration wall'. Then it got into my head and would not go away. In the end I had no option but to start making it. I was inspired by the interlocking pattern of semirandom curly...

    i'm picking up a 2006 xl650v transalp for my friend this week. Nothing concrete yet.... BUT, he's seen my 1998 xrv750 rd07a africa twin spare engine on my bench, & was asking if the cylinders & heads would go on current engine. Any thoughts anyone?

    Hmm, this is not going to look good on his CV - Greater Manchester Police Officer writes off unmarked car during test drive. The insurance claim form is going to be interesting as well. ;)

    Hmm i dont fancy the fuel consumption though, uses a descendant of the RR merlin spitfire engine, 660 bhp on skinny 21" wheels not for the faint hearted methinks, Bespoke Bentley that rewrites the rules of giant cars - Telegraph

    I dropped my Zumo 550 for the Nth time a few months back, and it finally gave up the ghost. It would not switch on at all, not on its own battery, mains power, bike cradle, usb to comp. Had a first opinion form an electrical repair place... "main board is screwed, they are no longer available...
