  1. I was washing my bike this morning with my younger son.

    After ten minutes, he said to me "Dad, why can't you use a sponge?"

  5. Saving myself for a curry tonight. The results are in. Had an ultrasound scan which has revealed a tear in the muscle and the surgeon has given me an steroid injection to relieve the discomfort. Got to see the lovely physiotherapist for some torture and I get a review in 8 weeks. Fingers crossed, no surgery neccessary. Big shout out for my local NHS hospital trust :upyeah: Andy

  6. Managed to bend down to fit the second stainless bleed nipple to the bike, pleased to get them done as the old ones were very very tight to move. I was a little bit concerned they might snap.

  9. I told my Therapist this morning that I was getting suicidal thoughts.

    He told me that in future I'd have to pay in advance.

    My wife just phoned me at work.

    She said, "Three of the girls in the office have just received some flowers for Valentines Day.They are absolutely gorgeous."

    "That's probably why they've received flowers then." I told her

  11. Much like your back. Clearly still giving you discomfort Steve, hope the spasm passes soon :upyeah: Andy

  12. Steve, presumably you have to drain and refill the brake fluid when swapping the old nips out for new ones? I've some s/s ones for my 748 but as the fluid only went in there last Sept I'm thinking I'll wait until it needs changing. It'd be handy if you tell me they can just be replaced and there's only a small spillage of BF.
     
  13. You can change them with only small spillage, wear rubber gloves :upyeah: and wash after with plenty water :splat:

  14. Yes very easy and quick, very little fluid loss if you have the new one ready to fit straight in, make sure you cover the wheel well just in case of spillage. My second one didn't even need bleeding, I bled it just in case but there was no air at all.
    Steve
    PS make sure you have the right size nipples before you start, the early bikes up to 1999 had m10 the later 99 onwards have m8.

  16. Not me but SWMBO...........earlier today she discovered from her family history research that she has (or had, she still needs to do a bit more digging) a distant relative that lives in Wentworth who lived next door to Bruce Forsyth. As far as she can see he hasn't been married nor has had any children so she and her brother could be the only living relatives :eek:

    Last week I picked up a set of Gilles rear sets for the monster off eBay, wasn't looking for them, was just doing a general search for Monster 1100S bits and they popped up, classified ad with 'make an offer' so I chucked in a cheeky offer. Blow me down it was accepted:astonished:. They arrived yesterday so I fitted them today; a bit of an IQ test though without any instructions but they're on. The only thing I'm flummoxed with is attaching the brake switch:thinkingface:. The nice thing is they came with a Rizoma brake fluid master cylinder and M&P carbon heel guards:D, I think I got a bargain:upyeah: and I've managed to get rid of the massive footrest hangers that are standard.
