Re: This bloke seems popular...

Can you say what the third link has to do with the other two? Looks like the Dan Burton in that article may allegedly be somehow linked to the director of Beedspeed Limited Victoria Burton and may be the same Dan quoted as being the shop general manager in the SULK article.

Re: RT 225 gearing

Re: Li150 seized. What do you think.

Don't get hung up on fully synth oil. You really don't need it for a standard 150. My point was not about "getting hung up" on any particular oil. It was; did he remember to put ANY in the fuel (which it seems he did) Don't get hung up on any particular oil, but use fully synthetic eh? Not that you...

Re: Like Riding a Wheel Barrow.

Just a quick update. Because a number of you were good enough to reply. The scooter is being looked at now. The steering race is suspected of being the main culprit.
