Congratulations ma man, and best of luck with it. Bit of a trek, but a job's a job... Now waiting for Perry to chime in with the MickyD references...


worse than that, back to the old mortgage game :evil: mind you I get to wear jeans and a t-shirt as it is all on the dog and bone. If anyone need their mortgage sorted give me a shout in a few weeks :wink:

just ordered a set from Merlin :( - got a pic and price - if they are small miniKen can have them.

on another note the dangers of being an admin - I clicked edit instead of quote and put my reply in your message :oops: fixed now.

well I did but only once I changed the front cog- no change, changed the rear cog worked great then, then did as you suggested and flipped the King and hey presto no slipping :roll:

It was really not apparent looking at the teeth that there was any noticeable wear but obviously there was? With this rollover der. set up, would you recommend a bash guard to stop the chain jumping off the front ring?

Today I cut the spare wheel well out of the Alfa and did my back in wrestling out the fuel tank through the boot. Spent another small fortune on it at Alfaholics before going home and out on my first ride of the year. Starlit skies, crusty snow underwheel, good company and a dram or too followed by a bag of steaming vinegar soaked chips on the way home.
Knackered but happy enough with my day.
