Re: First Ride for me

Just a note that the aftermarket Wilbers I bought slipped straight in. I also got it built 3mm longer which lifted the back nicely. Bonus is you can also just reach the rebound adjuster to turn it. Same here the Wilbers fitted no hassle and btw Trevor mine was standard length and I can still reach ...

Re: Front Suspension

Well I tried the second option and I tried to believe there was a big difference, but if the truth be known there probably was little change, but it's a right old hassle to 'tweak' because that involves taking it all apart again.... Perhaps it may be better for yourself because I'm quite light. Firs...

Re: Dead Raptor

I've never figured out how all these after marker reg/rec companies are related but I see on the Carmo Electronics contact page there is reference to Electrex World see https://www.carmoelectronics.co.uk/index.php?main_page=contact_us Beware because there is very little space where the reg/rec is fi...

I've got a mate who says all bikes should be black... apart from Italian ones.

Re: Braking bad, braking better...

Timely, I actually just bought some red rubber grease to use while putting a kit through my master cylinder. That red rubber grease it great stuff. I try to be diligent and clean the brakes once a year usually after the winter. Take a caliper off, gently squeeze the lever with the pads chocked to r...

Re: Dead Raptor

why do people still look to fit them? I know it's always stumped me.... it's not as though they are performance enhancing or cheap. Fashion is a fickle maiden. Get a newer series reg rec if you can. The old ones short everything not needed to ground so the stator is working flat out all the time. T...

Re: Dead Raptor

There's plenty of confusion surrounding using Li-Ion batteries with older charging systems - specifically the regulator/rectifier. Here's a link to an Electrex World warning sheet (pdf) https://www.dropbox.com/s/f5ekhntoafnc693/Battery%20Types.pdf?dl=0 I tend to think of the regulator/rectifiers as ...

Re: Dead Raptor

No battery?
Not as silly as it sounds Nick, is the battery just knackered or perhaps been burnt out by a faulty regulator/rectifier.
No ignition lights no pump noise nothing
Ignition switch?

Re: Rear caliper swap

As Nick mentioned there's nothing inherently wrong with the caliper. The master cylinder itself could also be the issue with it's piston seizing in the bore. Again due to ingress of dirt/muck and/or lack of grease. It wasn't your mechanics attempt at bleeding that caused the issue was it? To do it p...
