Re: Finally have the LiS 185cc running ok

Glad you are out and about now and I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but I've jut stripped down a 225 version after about 450 miles and it had a ring gap of 1.3mm! It looks to be a combination of ring and bore wear so you may have to keep a check on yours. damn ! you must be gutted . Somethin...

Re: Finally have the LiS 185cc running ok

Looks and sounds like it's not far away. Where is you camera mounted? Hi thanks for looking . I'm still not receiving notifications for some reason so i'll have to look into that. I tried mounting my Mobius cam on my helmet but I'm one of those riders that has to look at everything along my ride in...

Re: Crikey its quiet in here ..iet in here...in here... here..

Re: On a mission to combat noise

I will try & post a picture or two :? Whilst your stand is off, with the aid of a good vice & muscle, the stand components can be made much less sloppy as well. In any case, the M8 screws & washers are best replaced by the high tensile built in washer type, (like the 'proper' front sprocket drive b...

Face blooks a much easier platform to build/video picture threads and control negative and trolling Input. I’ve helped a few mates with wiring problems using Facebook built threads- yes one of the biggest issues with this site imo is that it doesn't host images . Faffing around uploading to photofu...

Re: On a mission to combat noise

Because of the original welds getting weak on my SX & the whole thing leaning @ a jaunty angle, I tried to devise an interim repair not involving a strip down & welding. (This had the knock-on effect of limiting the space available for the stand to rotate, so it is now stiff, but doesn’t rattle ). ...
