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 didn't take that many photos, a few here and there!
My pal on his ducati 851 took more, I don't have a smartphone!
I willk get a few up soon.
I was spotted by various members across england and Scotland, thanks to everyone who chatted!
