inlet manifolds...

I've just fitted a long range tank - one that allows you to keep your toolbox - and the top of the carb was way too close to the bottom of the tank.

GP rear light housing

I bought an LED light panel for my GP but the plastic light housing has the reflector holding the bulb built into it. Someone told me you can get plastic housings that you can fit LED panels into but I can't find any on the net. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Last time I went there was a couple at the beginning and a couple at the end. They don't seem to release the detailed times until the day.
