    Exhaust Acousti-fil stuff

    Probably sold you twice as much as you need , as they did with me , but hey ho it wont rot or degrade and it keeps for next time you need a refill Dont try packing it in too tight, you only need a loose (ish) roll around the inner pipe , seem to remember wrapping mine with two turns using 2 pieces to get the required length iyswim

    Exhaust Acousti-fil stuff

    Re packed my can but I used this stuff , its identical to acoustifil but a heck of a lot cheaper , been on the car about 4 years now and still good can't remember how much I used but sure 1 1/2 mtrs should be plenty https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Motorcycle-Exhaust-Can-Silencer-Re-Packing-Wadding-Sheet-450mm-x-1m-High-Quality/181633559294?epid=1388631078&hash=item2a4a342afe:g:1HsAAOxyg7xSW-~t

    Ridiculous sportspeople.

    sadly cycling , like so many other pursuits these days is nothing to do with sport , It has become a huge money making business , with untold thousands at stake there will always be the temptation to cheat

    Tin Top - Major Fuel Leak

    Looks good enough to me Perhaps the little critters who did the damage were petrol heads

    Bonding metal to plastic. Glue recommendations?

    Assuming this is a cosmetic job and not load bearing , Epoxy doesn't bond well with plastic but should be fine if you scour the surface first to key it in
  7. Thanks for the warm welcome chaps , I enjoyed the run out and meeting both new & some old familiar faces . The chippy stop was worth the run on its own , loved the spanner trick ! managed to get as far as the A580 East Lancs Rd turn off before the rain came along , not too heavy at first so only got a bit damp Brought back happy memories when anything up to 20 Westies turned up regularly to run amok around the Pennine roads . Happy days

    DA polisher

    Careful with faster speeds , heat build should be avoided , I would try it with slow speeds first . Doesn't it recommend using a spray can of water on the surface to keep the polish liquid ?

    Tips on swapping type 9’s

    Well they did when I got mine some years back , might be worth a call to Brian , They do make swapping cogs a lot better from the shorter travel required from the lever , the other real advantage for me , apart from being great at snicking the gears in, was that it extends the lever to a position where it falls right under the hand . I understand they can make one up to your requirements . I know Paul Hurdsfield ( ex Mancs AO) had his extended so he could reach it better with his short arms . I would deffo talk to them if you are interested

    Tips on swapping type 9’s

    Good advice from jonjh its all pretty straightforward , just take your time . I found getting the engine / box out and back into the car was the hardest part of the operation , apart from needing a different clutch release bearing ( will be the same one for you ) the prop shaft was abit of a pita to do . make sure to check no cables get trapped or snagged anywhere or it could become a bigger job for you . mine was swapped out from an MT75 to BGH type 9 so quite few things were different. good luck with the upgrade you will certainly know the difference when the BGH is in there . are you fitting there quickshift as well ?

    A bit of woodwork

    For joining the boards my choice would be an epoxy resin glue like West or SP systems thickened with coloidal silica . No joints to make or worry about , gap filling so no need to be dead accurate , just use light clamping pressure West Systems S,P,

    New MOT rules any one thought of doing this?

    as I understand it , If for any reason you think the MOT station is making false or inacurate claims to take advantage , you can report them to the MOT ombudsman . If they find the dealer is at fault they can impose massive fines or even revoke there licence .

    Doors, again?

    The other issue with polycarbonate can be static electricity charge . Its a known fact that voltages in excess of 60KV have been known to be induced ,especially in hot weather So be very careful , always wear rubber ( you cant see the stuff but you will certainly feel it )
