Re: Sip tubeless tyre pressures?

I tend to run 20 - 24 psi front & 30 - 36 psi rear on my SIP rims. (Sava front, Conti rear at present) If you're using the nuts that came with the rims then the easiest thing to do is carry a set of M8 nylocs for use with the spare. I wouldn't want to be messing about changing studs at the side of t...

Re: Exhaust gasket sealer?

I always use basic clear silicon for cylinder head (no gasket), base ally packer (no gasket) and exhaust flange. Also used for exhaust slip joints, not had a problem with it :-)

Re: Toolboxes

Where did you get the leg shield toolbox, I want to fit one but am concerned about poor fit, I'm not too patient when it comes to bodywork! How much fettling did it need?
