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

Freedom of speech, yep I'm all for it....allows me the chance to respond to your inaccuracy about the LCGB membership subscription. Its a shame you can't enjoy the other benefits. By opening a thread in a forum you are effectively inviting opinions......the saying goes don't ask the question if you...

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

yep fair enough Mick I know you're right . I should have learned by now that some LCGB members think that everyone wants and enjoys exactly the same benefits from the club . All i wanted from LCGB was access to the forum, nothing else and it struck me as rather expensive for those few like me who ar...

Re: Finally have the LiS 185cc running ok

Sounds like it goes better than my ts1 225! Good work. My next build is an Indian alloy 175 which I bored to 185 for Suzuki ts piston. I've heard they wear like cheese but it's fun to experiment. Ha ...I cannot say my experiment was fun but It sure was a steep learning curve. I cannot tell you the ...

Quote Johnny650 I once belonged to LCGB purely to be able to write on their forum. It must be one of the very few club sites in the World to actually charge people £25 in order for them to be able to post messages on their forum !? :roll: The £25 the LCGB charges is for a years membership to the cl...

heres a case in point about apathy .
I just checked and this thread has attracted over 900 viewings which is great but look how few people have had the interest or inclination to join the discussion or contribute something ...anything

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..

I do miss the scooterotica builds and threads- it would have been interesting to follow a Quatrinni build along the same lines as the RT kit Thing is, they're always a lot more interesting for those reading than for the people doing all the f u cking about posting up the pics, which is a mission to...

Finally have the LiS 185cc running ok

No doubt you will remember the 8 page tale of woe at the beginning of the year about my non start non running LiS 185cc :roll: Well last month I finally got her running and starting really well so i thought that I would share a video of my last test run to show you what a cheap Indian 185cc Cylinder...
