    I was expecting the worse when he wound it up and it screamed whilst he was huddled over it stroking it like it was a little kitten! Bollocks to that if it was to let go! 🥴🤣🤣
  2. Speed/rushing a job is often a road to disaster and mistakes! Looks tidy and neat J [emoji108][emoji106]
  3. You found anywhere yet Saul?
  4. Encyclopedia then cos you know everything else!!!
  5. If its only happening with the log bullet on and its equally hot to all six brakes then i’d say it’s a position of load issue, creating over braking/dragging through operation of the hitch etc. Possibly too much nose weight, does it feel like its shoving you when your towing, different/more so than when your towing other things and not just the log bullet?
  6. Found a pic of my old 600 SRAD, 98 S reg just before they went on to fuel injection, bought it and rubbed all panels down, painted it up in primer then free hand drew the 97 yoshimura pattern on em and painted it up, fit new decals and lacquered over everything. Polished outers on wheels and painted centres, polished swing arm. Full akrapovic race system. Things ya do when your young and keen!
