  1. No, the oil was dissolved by the peanut butter - however, that may also serve as a suitable basting fluid :thinkingface:
  2. Ohhh, OK then:worried:. I have actually got 2 new exhaust header gaskets on back order from Ducati.
    A Senna version you mean? Good idea.
    Just for all my adoring, and helpful, fans, and for the greater good of keeping you all amused as autumn, then winter, approaches I will do it:D
    Congealed peanut butter from the last time it was serviced by a Ducati dealer I think:thinkingface:;). Actually it wasn’t rust, it was corrosion, that’s much worse.
    :DHe he he, done that already, out, cleaned, greased, back in. Piece of cake:upyeah:. Mind you it had been well prepped with penetrating oil but admittedly it did come out much easier than I expected after all the horror stories on here. I reckon the socket was karma for the swingarm pivot bolt:confused:

  13. Dear Richard,
    Thank you for raising the delicate subject of loose cross members. It’s always a shame when one of our members is let loose, let alone one who’s cross (like many on here due to age;)). If I may be bold as to suggest you ought to restrain your member better that way it won’t frighten the neighbours; I find peanut butter works a treat. Alternatively just leave it hanging out in all weathers for 6 years after which it will be either rock solid or have fallen off.
    Yours faithfully
    Aunty Agony

  14. I’ve had it off :D I tricked Sprocket into thinking I was attacking again on Wed, then snuck up on him last night. I had the BBC film it too, post #342.

    My tactics were straight out of Sun Tzu and The Art of War & Motorcycle Maintenance. It’s a bit more hard core than the Zen version; but worked a treat

  16. Dear Agony Eejit,
    I think you need to start a new “Ask Paul” thread. Hours of endless amusement beckons as the evenings draw in.
