  1. GRP seat - cheap

    Sold.
  2. Lightweight batteries

    What amp hour do you think I would actually need Lawrie? I have no large draw items apart from the starter? ETA - I thought it was all about Cold Cranking Amps?
  3. Hydraulic Clutch

    Buy a longer clutch cable?
  4. Lightweight batteries

    What do we think of this? Cheap - but will it be man enough? https://www.hardwarexpress.co.uk/eltz5s-exide-li-ion-lithium-motorbike-battery---replaces-ytx4l-bs-ytx5l-bs-etz5s-4760-p.asp?gclid=EAIaIQobChMImLaA9Nb_1gIVFhMbCh2hGQgeEAQYDSABEgK97_D_BwE
  5. GRP seat - cheap

    GRP seat, base mount, broken at the headset and requires repair. Not suitable for the fat of A***. £25 collected, but may be able to deliver on my travels.
  6. Lightweight batteries

    Any sources other than PS for these so I can make some comparison? Or a model number?
  7. Duratec ecu options

    Nope, cams only...

    I've got a spare lightweight gazebo you can use @Chris King - Webmaster and Joint North East AO
  9. Duratec ecu options

    Flying in the face of standard WSCC convention and preferring to spend my money on track days, I can share my experience, different to those who have ££££ to spend at NMS. Used 2.0 Duratec, Megasquirt ecu (can DIY and much cheaper than OMEX for example), Mapped by a local mapper (AP racing engines for me, was about £250, but have also used Bailey Performance in Telford in the past for similar money, which is more your next of the woods), GSXR 750 throttle bodies, (£? but less than jenveys!) Valves recently reseated and head cleaned up but no porting or polishing by local engine shop (£200) Std Westfield manifold (no cat) A set of Newman fast road cams (£450) DIY fitted by @Trevturtle and I. That sees me at 214bhp and loads of torque - on road performance comparable to a Mega2000, on track performance harder to judge, but not a lot goes past.... I think the point I'm making is, IMO you don't need to spend a fortune on an OMEX - and not forgetting to factor in the cost of any mapping sessions (I don't know how much mapping @ NMS is, but I'd hazard a guess at £500+ ?) . You can do it for less expense and still get good results.

    I can't imagine it being an issue. It won't rain anyway.

    No garages dean. Cafe to keep you dry but not the car .

    I've been booked for ages, see you there!
  13. Weird skies today

    Had a post apocalyptic feel at Gatwick this afternoon, but that might just be Gatwick.
  14. He's only 2 weeks old, so get him home mid December. His name is Albert and bred by the guy that looks after @Julie Hall - AO Representative, Peak District AO Mx5, small world.
