Passed MoT test with no advisories :o, Many thanks to Mr Wirralman for the replacement brake pads :D
Glad the pads I gave you came in handy. Fair exchange for the cakes you brought me😊

It sounds like you need to invest in a good set of Allen sockets

i ended up going to halfords, got some laser allen bolt remover bits they had on clearance. got some new allen bits and allen keys. they had an opened mini steel drawer broken castors and dented corner for £190 http://www.halfords.com/workshop-tools/ ... undle-deal i missed out as i was busy checking my bank balance and some sneaky bugger nabbed it :(.

new bits and rubber band did the trick. had a few hours on the bike the shock refurb was well worth it and finally i could have a proper ride out today since it came back from minter in January with the new 600 engine. next planned things are get a few rusty bits off get them cleaned up and find someone to fabricate a new front brake bracket

It's in the manual somewhere, can't remember exactly, mileage 20000km ? or age, something like 2 years

I've decided I'm not going to change a cambelt till it snaps,
Yes I've gone green,(drab olive )
why waste a good belt till its expired
Unless you're racing
