Re: The new fuel symbols for EU countries (from 12th October) - French Version

Alcohol in fuel. Ethanol absorbs water , which regualr petrol does not, so in damp conditions you end up with water in the fuel , admittedly it is dissolved , but it still causes corrosion in carburated bikes with alloy carbs. Ethanol attacks brass so not good for the jets in Carburetors. Modern fue...

Re: Master cylinder

I was trying to get my head around the picture , until I realised that the reservoir, body and lid are resting on a plastic freezer box that the fluid is draining into. I rebuilt one of these on a 1978 RT boxer last year, it all cleaned up very well, bearing in mind that the bike had been off the ro...

Re: EU. In or out?

I still dislike the EU as the club it is now, as I believe they do not truly want us, just our financial contribution, and it will always be run for the benefit of Germany as they have so many EU economies in debt to them. I don't see the point of being in a gang where nobody wants you. Yes, I thin...

Re: Classic Album education.

Well this has been a huge success. I spent several hours last night listening to some of these and doing the massive Christmas jigsaw and life was good. So far: Sade - Not so keen which is a real pity as she lives next door. Golden Earring - Totally awesome. I will listen to all of them in the comi...

Re: Classic Album education.

Moontan by Golden Earring , little known , but a fantastic rock album ( it's the album with Radar Love on it) which has most cerrtainly stood the test of time. Radar love is not even the best track. Make sure you get the European version ( big tree green sea/ are you receiving me) not the US version...
