Re: Anyone gone from a Ram Air to a Breathe Sweet....

Be really careful in jetting when going to breathe-sweet because the elbow actually speeds up airflow to the carb compared to a straight foam filter. In our experience on the dyno the engine often makes more power with a breathe sweet but also needs bigger/different jetting to suit as well.

Re: Jb weld or TIG

It needs welding and doing properly mate. JB weld will fill a hole ok and maybe patch you up to get home but that part is under stress as soon as you tighten the stud.

Re: GT200 kit exhaust advice please.

Best I've found so far is the MB one that is supported off 4 chaincase studs because the strain is shared by enough studs to cope.

I thought there might be panel problems with the shock-mounted one. Shame as I've trashed many a good panel with that type before.

Re: GT200 kit exhaust advice please.

Martin - what is the panel clearance like with that support bracket? I trust you mean the L&S one from SCK?

It is a better system than off the chaincase studs but older pipes with this support method seemed to touch either the panel on full shock travel or the kickstart.

Re: London low emission zone

Nah, that's not too bad - they were going to charge/ban all old bikes but now all the historic ones can still go in free.

I can foresee an increase in people commuting on classics rather than plastics.

No harm in that.

Re: Lambretta HID conversion

Colin - a couple of Qs

Are you running a full DC conversion on the lammy?

Also did you have any heat problems running 55W in the Jockey's light because stock is only 35W?

That looks a really compact HID conversion compared to ones I've seen in the past. Good VFM even compared to bulbs!
