  6. That’s an incredibly generous offer but I think I will get it fixed at some point and then never ride it again :grinning:

  7. That’s a seriously knackered battery.

  8. Finally received the paddock stand for my new Monster, fitted the thingamebobs, so it’s not leaning perilously close to the car any more.

  9. Stripped, cleaned and rebuilt the inlets and reed blocks on the bastard. No gaskets fitted just a whole tube of three bond by the looks of it, it was all over the reeds so I’m surprised it even ran. Some people should not be allowed to work on engines.

  10. Stripped and rebuilt the front cylinder on the Nsr, installed new rings just to match the top cylinder when I source one but other than that it was all in good order.

  11. Took the 748 for an MOT at @cookster 's

    Thankfully it passed - when I asked him his opinion of the rear brake he said "Ducati mate, they're all shit" :joy:

  15. Ordered some bits for the Versys, not as expensive as I thought it was going to be, although, two of the decals, you can't buy individually, you have to order the panel to get the decals

  16. Try Terry at The Image Works. Excellent and very cost effective.

  17. These plain black decals are £38 each, no pattern, no wording, just plain black

    I have some plain black vinyl, I can trace the original, and cut my own :)
