Site Feedback / FAQ / How to... / TapaTalk Chat
« on: September 14, 2017, 10:29:25 AM »
This has been irritating me for a while.

A while back, "Chat" appeared on the TapaTalk App without notice and with no way of the forum admin removing it.

The chat works on THEIR system via THEIR app. THEY moderate it (apparently).

Our members tend to "chat" on the forum :) or by PM so all I can ask is please don't use it (or only if you understand that it is a third party application and nothing to do with sohc.co.uk)

Announcements / New Forum Sponsor
« on: September 06, 2017, 11:29:25 AM »
I am pleased to announce that Marcel den Butter at www.CB750Faces.com has agreed to be our new forum sponsor.

Marcel is a long-time member on here. His username is "Lecram" (Marcel backwards...) and I'm sure that many of you will have done business with him in the past.

I filched the logo from his Facebook page www.facebook.com/cb750facescom - we will see if we can get a better fit in the future.

CB500/550 / Make your own clutch pushrod? (CB500)
« on: February 06, 2017, 09:12:36 AM »
Here's something from way back (and a long way away)

Has anyone here done this or have DS started making their own / found a secret stash ?

The site was offline this morning from approx 0845 to 1030 due to a power outage at the datacentre.

The hosting company are apologetic and have vowed to understand why their various levels of power backup didn't work :)

Site Feedback / FAQ / How to... / Adverts???
« on: September 13, 2016, 09:09:39 AM »
This morning I had an email from Tapatalk advising that they had sent me $5 by PayPal as part of the monetization of the site.

I don't remember ever setting this up and would certainly have disable ads if I had known.

I don't get ads on Tapatalk though. Does anyone else?

Has anyone ever clicked on a link that took them to a commercial site?

Before I turn it off, I'd like to understand how I have managed to "earn" $5  :)

Misc / Open / Solar powered lamps in remote garage - question for Ash?
« on: September 13, 2016, 09:03:14 AM »
In my new house I have a garage in a block. It's not far away (about 50m) but I cannot dig up the tarmac and lay a power cable.
I'm thinking of solar power and LED lamps.
Anyone any experience with these low-power panels and the battery chargers that come with them?
There are plenty available from Maplin, Amazon etc - I want one that will last a good while and power 6 to 8 LED lamps (of about 5W each)

Misc / Open / Bike parking at Edgbaston?
« on: July 09, 2016, 08:40:02 PM »
Hi all.
My son has presented me with a ticket for the first day of the test match at Edgbaston on 3rd August.
Train from Reading is £122 return if booked now. Coach is £57 but 5 hrs each way.
So.
Where can I leave my bike (and kit) close to Edgbaston?

Hi everybody.

I have been trying to migrate the server all day (unsuccessfully).

Sorry for the blackout.

I will try again later in the weekend (maybe Sunday)

I have been thinking about how best to present a library of useful documents and articles.

How about something like this: http://info.sohc.co.uk ?

It needs some imagery (backgrounds, logo etc) but I've used this system on other websites and it works well as a download manager.

What do you think?

Ash - replace or in parallel with your dropbox?

PS: I've only dropped a couple of files in the 500 and 750 categories to test it out...

Other Bikes / CBR600FS1 (2002) Rear Wheel Needed
« on: March 14, 2016, 08:59:21 AM »
Long story short, my daughter's partner came off his CBR last week and the rear wheel is buckled.

I can't find a part number anywhere, just a couple of listings on eBay at £150-200

Any internet warrior out there who can find a art number for me?

Misc / Open / Merry Christmas to all SOHC-ers
« on: December 25, 2015, 07:50:01 AM »
It's not usual for me to be up at this time on Christmas morning but I was the driver last night so am bright eyed and bushy tailed this morning.

I hope you all have a great day and a prosperous new year.

Let's hope this global warming delivers us a decent riding season.

Steve.
