    Newbie (although oldie) from Easty Yorks

    Having been there done that since my AP60 in 1976, I've just sold my collection of high maintenance, but ever so satisfying 70's 2 strokes, ad spent some of the profit on a 900 Tracer. I tried the XCXlow (being the wrong side of 5'5") and it was Ok, but then someone suggested looking at the...

    Dodgy Fuel guage sender

    Returning from a trip to the Cat & Fiddle, my mates were signalling they needed fuel. A quick glance at my fuel guage told me I still had a full tank. FULL TANK? After 130 miles? Something wasn't right. Pulling into to the nearest petrol station a vigorous shake of the bike got the guage to drop...

    Okay fuel consumption again

    So decided to check my MPG or Litres per KM. The.photos hopefully attached show the fuel guage just as it clicked over onto the second to last segment.

    Fuel warning sticker removal

    So, how the heck do I remove the fuel warning sticker from the fuel tank without scratching the paintwork? Seems to be welded on.... Is it a case of getting the hairdryer on it first and then using Autoglym or something similar?
