Re: Alternative Front Brake Master Cylinder

I had a hell of a time bleeding up freshly rebuilt calipers and master cylinder. The over night cable tie helped, but what made the biggest difference was taking the bike out and generating a lot of heat using it a few times. It went spongy when cold for a few rides, but ended up feeling very good i...

Re: Has anyone done a tour on thier Kr1s?

Hello again! I wasn't implying it was a unique thing to ride a motorbike! It was really just a bit of light conversation to be honest! I averaged 60mpg on the road, 20mpg at the track, and used about a litre and a third of oil, which was silkolene comp2plus. But I've been informed silkolene have cha...

Re: 11/12 July: PS trackday & Classic Bike BurnUp @ Cadwell

Your bike was pretty fast Douglas!
I spoke to Griff and he said your forks were pretty good for adjustments!
I'm putting heavier oil in an and that's as far as I can go it seems!
Amazing weekend, a real assault on the senses as far as amazing bikes go too!
