It's a problem for older vehicles. Premium fuel, by all accounts, has less Ethanol in it. I use it soley because of this.

Although I've replaced all the fuel lines on the VFR, I'd rather not have...

Yeah, Plusgas is my Go-to - I also rate Comma's Release oil.

I'll get the little 125 sorted properly (Starter motor shat itself) then the VFR can be down for a few days while I figure it out.

22 year old VFR - Snapped exhaust studs.

Before this, I've never snapped a stud, bolt - anything.

A previous owner was a hamfisted gibbon. I keep discovering snapped studs (oil feed, stator cover, swingarm so far). Realised the front...

My mate said he needed a dedicated 30A breaker, and it pulled north of 20A. Something about a "dual" charger.

To put it into perspective, the Superchargers can push insane numbers. 250A at...

That's why I refused to renew. Having taken employers to ACAS, I know they don't award cases lightly, and taking that course of action shows true colours.

London Mayor and TfL will continue to ignore the fuck out of MAG.

People are already buying new(er) bikes because of the re-zoning, ULEZ etc. They've got their way.

The previous Hermes person was a total 'tard. Never put cards through, pretty sure a lot of the "lost" stuff (There was a lot of it) ended up being opened and kept. I got sick of it and refused to...

Nah, changing the starter relay is maybe a 10 minute job. Will take me far longer to clean yesterdays mucky fingerprints off of it.
Assuming the relay is the issue, if it isn't it may end up on...

It runs perfectly, when it has electricity. I like it, despite it being a weighty beast.

I think some risers after I sort the electric pixies, and it'll be fine for munching miles. A 500 bike is...

Challenging a Tesla for the money is a pretty tall order. Those things are sodding quick when you race* them from the lights.


*Hypothetically, of course I wouldn't do that.
