Project Board / Re: Lets build a SOHC for less than a grand
« Last post by hairygit on November 09, 2019, 07:11:59 AM »
Hairy if your local chippy asks to take the oil you are well in, was running my Mitsubishi L200 on 100% bio diesel till used oil got too expensive, then last local seller got shut down by HMRC!
Strange area if the tax rules there, you are allowed to produce/use 4,000 litres of bio fuel per annum and provided it is for personal use, duty free. If you use it in a work can or similar though it becomes liable for duty. Have the EU to thank for getting paid to take old vegetable oil, pig breeders used to collect it free of charge, but waste oil was outlawed by the EU from being put in animal swill/feeds, and it has to be disposed of in an approved/costly way.

Desperately Seeking!! / 500/550 points cam
« Last post by AndyH on November 09, 2019, 04:45:31 AM »
Hi folks, I'm chasing a points cam for my CB500K1 as the previous owner dispensed with same after fitting a Dyna S which has now failed.
I was able to borrow a cam from a mate, but he will need it back when he starts his 550 resto.
I'm located in Perth, Western Australia and quite happy to pay a fair cost (including shipping).

Misc / Open / Re: Spark plug re-theading .. can anyone recommend a decent repair kit?

Now nearly 2 1/2 years on and still OK, but must admit its not had much use this year due to new hip.

I used the Vorlux kit but the US PRO looks to be exactly the same kit.

I have Avon Road Riders on my CB500 four. Never had an issue with them. I used to use them on my CX500 years ago. Used in all weathers and again, never had an issue with them.
Forgot to add, I fitted Avon RoadRiders to my Triumph Bonneville, T100, and no issues there either.
Oh, and my re entry acquired Yamaha Diversion, has a Road Rider on the front and it’s not that sure footed on white lines, all over the place. Not sure if it’s the tyre or the bike’s fault. A Yamaha forum that I’m on, their members, swear by Battlax for the Yamaha.
