Re: What have you done to your MT today ? contd

@ Gary - don't think so mate - last time the tube has a small hole on the inside (rim side) - be interested to see what happened this time, definitely need to take my time this time and check the tyre and rim properly before refitting. Cheers.

Re: What have you done to your MT today ? contd

Thanks guys. Latest tube is a heavy duty one sourced from a local offroad motorsport specialist... so I'll keep my fingers crossed and see how it goes. Went out to the MT today to move it... and the blasted back tyre is flat again. I haven't used the bike in a couple of months, it seems to have jus...

Re: Nick @Force

As per the original post - I recently made an order which included a surcharge as I'm on the Isle of Man. Nick emailed to say they'd sent it Royal Mail instead of Courier as cheaper. Nice customer service, appreciated Nick.

Re: A little help from a friend or the general public !

As above re the back brake on my 350 - was pretty pants when I first got the bike, gave it a thorough clean and covered a few miles - all good. Didn't take long at all.

Re: What have you done to your MT today ? contd

Changed the bloody back tyre inner tube again. The fecking thing was just parked up, and yet the back tyre went flat. Do these things do it for fun or what? Checked the rim tape and it looked okay, but the tube split on the inside.....FFS??? Am I missing something?

Re: DEFENDER 90

200 Tdis are a good bet - nice engine, very usable. The older Td and NA engines were horrible. I've got a 110 Puma currently - goes well, essentially a modern car - but I preferred the "honest" nature and simplicity of my previous 200 engined Defender. TD5s are also good, if properly maintained. Usu...
