    Good evening I'm in the process of changing the front sprocket on my RD07a. I removed the sprocket cover and then the old sprocket. I was merrily cleaning all the old crud away before fitting the new one when this little fella dropped out. I have no idea where it goes so any help would be...

    I am in the slow process of a complete rebuild and looking for some help. I found a new harness on eBay and was able to get some used Speedo and Tach assemblies from Hamart. It appears as though the wiring is incompatible as the wiring connectors are both male.... Anyone have any advice?

    I'm in the process of renewing one of the bearings in the suspension linkage of my 2002 RD07A as it was a MoT failure. But I was wondering if it was possible to convert the loose needle bearings to sealed caged bearings. Has anyone done this? Is it worthwhile? What are the benefits? Iain

  19. Compensation overturned

    Not mine I hasten to add. Court overturns rider's crash compensation. You're riding on your side of the road, you get hit by a truck crossing the white line, loosing your right leg in the process - and the trucking company is cleared of negligence! Fecking unbelievable! 100% free webcam...
