Renewal just come through for my zzr600.
I pay monthly these days.
It went down £2 a month
£12.60 per month over 10 months.
Bear in mind that includes broker fee of £20 and tax at £9

Insurance is about £90 a year. Cheapest so far was £80 several years ago. I don't think I'll find it cheaper as it also includes modifications :)

Not surprising with the Norton.
Still not bad though :)

Yep, impact rattle gun, and socket not on fully. Mine are quite good still.

Most places insist on tightening to 140ft/lb when it should be 108-110ft/lb.

Fusebox where the relay plugs in. Known failure are they not?

According to the owners handbook, they should be torqued to 108 Nm which is 80 ft/lb. This is what causes problems a lot of the time (particularly with things like the head studs) where people overtighten as they use the Nm figure as a ft/lb figure.

My bad, i meant nm. Sorry :(

Excellent. I'd be better off getting a passenger side one as they tend to be used less :)
Thanks Gilbertd

Hey guys,

Does anyone know if the seat cushion is the same on electric and manual models and also if left and right are interchangeable.

My cushion feels like it has disintegrated and i bottom out if going over some bumps etc :(
Thanks guys

Yes it would. It really didnt look that deep.
I really didnt want to go wading that deep because the spare tyre well has a hole :)

Dry as a very dry thing :)

19 June 2019 - 15:44

They are indeed. Also fixed by boot seal last year :)

Not exactly the same, but the DeTomasso Mangusta was apparently named thus, as it means mongoose, which eat/kill cobras (Ford Shelby Mustang)

Yikes, that's some list.
Makes mine sound almost new lol.

Ahem, it's far from it lol.

I found stripping motor quite easy. I just used a wide blade sturdy screwdriver to lever the blower out on the three rubber bits. They were stuck but do release :)

I think headlights go like that due to uv light. They are coated with a uv blocker when new. They will continue to go cloudy one gone :(
