Re: Tips for finding spare parts

Great advice Joe, google is definitely you friend when parts hunting so long as you have a little patience. However I bet there isn't a spare part number for the bracket welded to the frame that the exhaust rubber mount fits into... my bracket vibrated & cracked free :shock: :( Great parts list pdf ...

Re: pointless and mundane

Bit silly and pointless
Oh, I wouldn't say that at all. If you ask me I reckon that's a bit of top anoraking :D And always looks good in yellow.

Bazza article was great & the first I'd heard of his involvement with Cagiva. You certainly do learn summat every day.

Re: hi

Ooohhh, nearly forgot large whisky & water for me, thanks. And welcome in/back - tough to forget the TL grunt.

Guzzis & TDRs :? There's an eclectic mix for you, from the sublime to the ridiculous. Or vice versa depending on preference.

Re: hi

Too cold, pah! Usual 25 mile commute in this morning and the weather was glorious. Clear & crisp, the sun out and dry roads with the motor enjoying the dense cold air and barking hard. :ride: :happyhappy: Tucked up in layers with neck tubes & the electric gloves on regulo 3 I didn't even feel the co...

Re: Side Stand Mod

There seems to be some sort of weird bright object that's casting light & shadows on the bike and making it sparkle. It also seems to be adding warmth to the air & I'm not entirely sure what it may be and whether we have such a thing in the UK. Bike looks might fine though. perhaps I'll take a pic o...

Re: Side Stand Mod

I think it's mostly to do with the higher-level exhaust
And where did you get the exhaust from?

Re: TPS help needed

In over 30K miles I've never suffered with the mystery 3K glitch and consequently never checked the TPS, although I have added CT's black box fix to 'fool' the temp above 86, And moreover i've never wanted to adjust it either as it sounds like an ideal opportunity for me to bugger things up :( If it...

RHS exhaust link pipe hanger - disappeared

I was just ACF-50ing the 'ol boy & noticed the RHS exhaust link pipe to frame hanger, the one down by the rear brake pedal was missing! The complete hanger had broken off all its attachment points on both the link pipe & frame by what I can only assume was metal fatigue due to vibration. Don't know ...

Splendid, I'll join you for a couple of snifters & a gas.

Seems to me getting the op done early is good thing. Plenty of time to get fighting fit for spring

Re: Winter battery care

Oohh, I know what I forgot to ask does anyone know where the reg/rec wiring actually splices into the loom? It's not the flat connector on the rhs tucked up by the coolant tank return pipe is it?

Re: Hello newbie

Yo ! welcome in. And as you'll know from the Duke the V gives you that lovely grunty easy speed.

Plenty of good info on here if you can find it. Better to use a google search i.e. site:raptorchapter.org.uk <your search words> rather than the in built site search option.

Enjoy

Re: Winter battery care

Fitted a led voltage indicator that flashed on the way to work a couple of days ago which indicates the voltage was below 13.2. It was a cold day & I had left it idling for quite & few minutes whilst I was faffing about. It bounced above & below for a few miles, stayed steady for the greater part of...

Re: Gloomy, rainy, dark, not great for riding :(

It's gloomy, rainy and dark here in the UK. Just horrible. After a rubbish day at work a blast on the back roads would be just the tonic..... So take a little time to have a virtual drink in the bar, tell the friendly bar staff your troubles and plan the Winter upgrades. Cheers, scotch & water for ...
