Quite like the idea of that Stahlbus plug thingy. Definately would be grateful for the chance of buying a replacement sump pan Ken!

I fitted one to my CBB1300 Johnny, it had a tendency to drop oil onto the exhaust when doing oil changes, it also saved me changing the sealing washer every time. Since then I've done a lot of oil changes and never spilt a drop except when I change the filter that is.

Seriously get one, they are a godsend.

Just found the 2 spare pans, not sure if one is off my engine or not. Both are in excellent condition. £30 plus P&P if you want one. You need the sump plug as well?

Just bought a new sump plug last week Ken to put in it so I’ll take the pan without the plug thanks! No rush Ken as I’ll probably not change it until next oil change. I’ll get on the PayPal case soon as you know what the postage is.

Well had a first run out on the 550 this afternoon, just added it to my multi bike policy, £16 neither here nor there. Just did 6 miles or so and returned home to assess. Not much heat in No2 exhaust. Looked at the plug and cap and quite sure I had only been getting about 2.75 cylinders. Cut back the old hard lead and attached plug and ah, hot hot! Tested plug cap and we’re getting 14.5k ohms resistance. I have no doubt I will have to give the coils the Ash treatment and fit new plug caps. Despite that it ran ok on 2.75.🤭 O’ and I hate the handlebars. 🤮

2.75 cylinders luxury Johnny -  I ran my 400 on 2 cylinders for quite a few miles before I put my leads on in the right order.

It may be common knowledge to some but received my as advertised left side cover for a CB500 and fits the 550 perfect. Good quality too! Seller told me he didn’t have a side cover for a 550. I’ll send him an informative message.👍😜

Well when it comes to DS packages the bigger the better! Won’t be fitting these new pipes until bike is painted. But assumed they are probably not going to drop much in price.

Lovely Johnny. Have you removed them from the boxes to check them? I know it's a pain unpacking and repacking them all but worth a look.

Had another blast today on the 550 after new drive chain fitted. Problem with No2 not playing ball again when I returned to garage fuel was dripping out the silencer. Also wanted to bog down over 4000 rpm.
Feel coil refurb coming on. New ht leads plugs and caps would be a worthwhile job I think. Parked it up and set off on the Pan before the rain came.😁
Was thinking when I was out on the Pan today if you had to get shot of all your bikes and could only keep one, which would you keep? For me it would have to be the Pan.

I would have to keep Millie the Mongrel 550. It's an absolute blast to ride, for a 550 the performance and handling are pretty phenomenal, the original Yoshimura pipe sounds fantastic, she has lovely styling and it's only a single seater, so I don't have to take anyone with me 😂😂😂. I love my 500 K1, she's such a classic but Millie wins my vote.

O! Now I’m having second thoughts! That’s your fault Julie, going for fun over practicality. 😂😂
