Oh, I thought we'd had a parachute failure there...

The members got a cheapskate effort to get the renewal reminders posted out for free...wonder what their subs paid for?
Gavin's parachute jump costs perhaps? Cynical me.

Re: BLOA dead?

Morning. So someone was saying there's not much going on here at the moment so here's something to chat about. Anybody know what's going on with the BLOA, I'm banned from the Facebook page and only have the LCGB side of the story so far. Any of those who supported GF had a change of heart, especial...

Re: Fuel Diamond!

There was a fella selling them at the Newark bike fair. I asked him to explain the chemistry of how they work.
He couldn't and took umbrage that I questioned their validity. No sale.

As stated by others Snake oil.

Re: TS1, Avanti ex box, VHSH30, kytronik curve c, boyesen reeds,

This may be of interest? I have a TS1 253 with EX Box, VHSH and Augusto 7000. Similar port timing to those mentioned above. (64x71 5mm added to top of barrel) I used to have it paired to a Franspeed Race which made 28BHP and 21ft/lb. (4.8 final drive) I changed to the EX Box and lost 7 horses and 5 ...

Re: Orange sparks out the exhaust?

Possibly the internal baffles and silencing materials of the BGM pipe disintegrating and burning up. Like most BGM stuff they are quite poorly made. They are not made to the spec of their designer. Many corners were cut. Mr Cross will tell you the story. I followed Dan through a tunnel in the Italia...

Re: Sticky's exhaust test

I believe it was in the March 2011 edition the NK road pipe was considered the 'best all round performer'. It made slightly less power than the Fran race but slightly more torque.
I saw the article posted on a forum recently but can't remember which one.

Re: ADS3 vs Franspeed Supertourer

I my experience the Super Tourer is not a great pipe for touring at 50-60 mph. With 4.8 gearing its not on the pipe at those speeds and I found myself changing down on hills whilst riding in a group. On my own at 70 plus it was great. However, I found it very thirsty compared to the Robbo Speed or N...

Re: Af new cylinder head

Make sure you check the combustion volume before fitting. I had an Avanti head for my RB225 that came from Rayspeed that only had 19cc. Which gave me a comp ratio of 12:1. I guess it slipped through the net?
