Re: Sargent seat

So i've done over 1200 miles on my RT with the Sargent seat and cool cover fitted, and i have to say it was money well spent. I did put the OEM seat back on last week for a local ride, and i could not wait to get home and fit the Sargent seat back on the bike as i just did not like the OEM seat. So ...

Re: What happened? Wouldn’t start

I think they replaced the starter solenoid or cleaned the contacts.
Have a look on UKGSer.

Re: Multi Bike Insurance UK

That makes sense …. But it’s insurance companies we are talking about 😂 I was told a long time ago, probably 10 yrs ago, that the NCB was for the rider not the bike or policy…. With car and bike being separate. Can't remember which company I talked to.. I've never heard or been told that. The NCD i...

Re: Service Time

When the bike is a bit older i will do the servicing myself.
But as for parts, All my bike only have OEM service parts fitted.
Bikes are a hobby so i can spend that bit extra on them.
