Well I went to Stansted and an anonymous business park outside Cambridge on my bike today.

It pissed down.

I didn’t bother with any photos

I should have looked there first.

They sell the exact pre-cut key for less.
Still £9+ for a spare key that you’d hope never to need though.

Sorry Mike, but to those of us who are engineers by profession, that is a "statement of the bleedin' obvious" :)

Announcements / Recent Spammer Registrations
« on: June 07, 2019, 09:28:27 AM »
We've had a rash of spammer registrations recently. Most are filtered out automatically by www.stopforumspam.com to which I (we) subscribe.

However, that database relies on forum owners reporting spammers, which, when added to the database results in all future registrations from that username, email or IP address are barred.
This has always worked reliably but the spammers have developed a counter whereby they register but don't post for a while (sometimes weeks) and by the time they are reported they have already made it onto loads of forums.

The upshot of this is a request from me for diligence by those who are on here every day.
If you see something suspicious* then please PM me as I will get it immediately. I'll then simply delete them and their rubbish.

* normally anything that has a load of links in it or stuff that isn't anything to do with SOHCs.

Is that true? Or is it another “DB7 saved Aston Martin” story?

Are you going to ditch that horrible can?

I sorted matters out by fitting a CB750/4 gear lever (same height though different angle and distance from the crank case) and am now able to ride in touring boots if I want to!

Although it's difficult, I'll have to check whether this is the boot or the denims. I ride with my toes on the footpeg and move to the insole for each gearchange. It must happen when I move my foot up and back after changing gear...

I can't see how a different gear lever will change this?

First proper ride of the year. Just local (Windsor, Maidenhead area)

Notes:
Almost impossible to get into neutral when hot.
Choke lever is dragged to "on" by riding denims (must have happened 4/5 times)
Lovely soft comfy seat
Soft comfy suspension

This is the Old Forest Road in Wokingham:

My “square case” K0 is 2739 (engine) and 3240 (VIN) first registered on 1/4/71.

I wonder when they changed?
