not sure I would adhere to those too well, although I pretty much am as I'm always working on this damned house or picking up supplies for it.
two months later, and restrictions here as per last Sunday have been eased. We can travel up to 25 km now :roll:

Re: Computer HDD

Those old high energy spinning things? Why do you prefer?

I moved to SSD a couple of years ago. Blindingly fast, and no failures. No moving parts either, lower power usage etc.

I had a couple of old style drives fail... Not happy!

Replica OW01 Kit triples.

I've finally picked up a set of genuine YEC adjustable kit 43mm triples for the OW01. I'll be doing a run of replicas. I'll be making 20 sets, ( believe it or not I need at least 10 sets for my own projects) And will have some spares to sell. Price tba, I want them to be indistinguishable from the o...

Re: Motorcycle work bench

Depends. If I was to make one it would be just wide enough, and long enough for front and rea stands.

I will build one someday (I have a bought hydraulic one) I found a couple of old hospital beds and ratted the electric screw jacks-controllers etc out of them... One day.... :crazy:

Re: Carb Cleaner

I've found this to be the best I've used yet. Small tins, but it is really good.

It's a genuine subaru product so you should be able to purchase from a dealer.

Re: ZX7RR Build.

I don't see any photos of an M1 Ralph? Hi Michael, I haven't revisited this post. i know M1 makes you think of a Yamaha GP bike! I'm actually referring to the Kawasaki homologation special for super bike racing. It was designated 1993-1994 ZX7-RR (M1) https://andys-kawasaki-zxr-zx7r-tribute-site.ne...

Holiday

During the enforced Covid 19 lock down, I thought of a way to lift my partners spirits. I purchased a map of the world, and pinned it up on the kitchen wall. When she got home, I gave her a dart, and said throw this, and wherever it lands i'm taking you for a holiday when covid is all over. Turns ou...

Re: Coils

no, but in theory, better than a hard worked coil that services 2 cylinders in a 2 x rhythm The modern teams use them, so they work. I'm going to have a try with them just because they eliminate a lot of piping, just wires. You still need to provide both cylinders with 12 volt energy, and with stock...

Yes Kiwi... you guys did extremely well. I know you are not a fan of the PM.

Just say the governments of the world had actually prepared for the likelihood of a pandemic?

Never happened before??? lol.

Rather than halting the world whist they got their shit together?
