Re: ....Any experienced climbers on here..??

Hi FFD

Where are you located? If you are looking for local help, it would be handy to tell us.

I am not one of those loonies who hangs a tent off the side of a vertical rock face, but I have done a fair amount of climbing. If you are near Norwich, I might be able to help.

Re: You tube video brake bleeding :roll:

I think this will work most times, but there is one important limitation which he doesn't mention in the video. Bleed nipples are mounted at the highest point on a caliper. Calipers have two ports - the bleed nipple fits in the top one, and the hose from the master cylinder fits in the lower one. Th...

Re: Something like Rok Straps

How about these?

The short straps with the Camlock is elasticated, and you can simple join the short and long straps together by feeding the end loops through each other to make endless straps.

Re: GSA front brake switch

Unfortunately, I currently have much more familiarity with the AES website than I really want. This is not their fault ... I have an old Landrover, which is currently undergoing a gradual rewire. It seems that 40yrs is the maximum lifetime for 1979 LandRover wiring. Every couple of weeks, a circuit ...

Re: GSA front brake switch

Would a change-over relay help? https://www.autoelectricsupplies.co.uk/product/174/category/36 These have two outputs, and the relay flips between them so one of them is always live. Use the output from your expensive bar steward switch to trigger the relay, then attach the feed to your brake lights...

Re: Camel Tanks and Others...

Would a pair of 2L alloy tanks be of any interest? £45 each or £100 the pair. Available here: https://adventurebikerider.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=48464 I don't understand the pricing strategy either, but they look very pretty. Two litres (even twice) isn't going to be enough on this trip. My ...

Re: BANG !

My father was an army bomb disposal officer in the 1950s and early 60s. At that time, most of his workload was making safe WW2 relics. One of his stories was about the journey back to base after a job. Trundling along in their Land Rover, he and his assistant passed a petrol station and noticed a ca...

Re: mot and sprayed screens?

Has anyone ever had an MOT failure because of a scuffed up or opaque screen? I have had a few screens deteriorate quite badly over time, mainly because of sun light damage, but no MOT tester has ever made any comment about it. It has never caused me any trouble in normal riding. If I were considerin...

Re: Bike transport service

I worked for these at one stage. http://www.sos-motorcycle-recovery.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=104&Itemid=62 I have been recovered by this company (via the RAC) a couple of times, in 1997 and again around 2010. Was very happy with the treatment of my bike on both occasions.
