  2. You might meet somebody in a pub to replace him......
  3. I'm looking for a sidecar to attach to my Beamish Suzuki. Some of the best fun I ever had was when I had a 325 Bultaco with a chair on.....
  4. My mate John.....
  5. This morning my wife said to me that she had a head cold ?I said.. "It's probably because you're a fat [nice chap]""How can being fat cause me to get a head cold ?" she screamed.I said.. "Because your head's never out of the f@@@ing fridge fatty!"
  6. As Tom Jones said 'It's not unusual'... a two stroke will always smoke a bit heavier when it's first fired up and the condensation clearing as the engine starts to warm can look like oil. Is the bike running well once it's at operating temperature? Is there a drop in the gear oil level?
  7. Quote Modify Remove Split Topic An Eskimo was driving along in his car, when it suddenly started smoking heavily. He quickly drove to a nearby garage where a mechanic was able to look the car over. "This may take a while" said the mechanic, "why don't you go for a little walk in town?" So off went the Eskimo, walking down the high street, doing some window shopping. It was quite a hot afternoon, and he decided to stop for an ice cream. Afterwards, he popped back in the garage to see how his car was. The mechanic walks up to him, and says: "looks like you've blown a seal" "No! No!" Exclaimed the Eskimo, quite embarrassed, wiping his mouth: " It's only Ice-cream!!"
  8. Pull the lever in and secure it in that position with a cable tie, leave it overnight and try it again......
  9. Generally an air leak on the inlet will cause the revs to 'hang' when you shut off, a leak in the exhaust can cause popping. Doesn't hurt to seal it.
  10. Respect......
  11. Does it pop on the overrun? Air leak in the exhaust?
  12. Will this help?
  13. I assume you mean it's leaking from the carburettor, not from a hole in the tank or pipe? Check the float needle is seating correctly. Sometimes a quick rap or three on the bowl with a screwdriver handle can dislodge any crud if it's a rush job. The tiniest amount of crud can hold the needle off it's seat and allow fuel to run past and overflow.
  14. My wife and I were sitting at a table at her school reunion, and she kept staring at a drunken man swigging his drink as he sat alone at a nearby table. I asked her, "Do you know him?" "Yes", she sighed, "He's my old boyfriend. I understand he took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear he hasn't been sober since." "My God!" I said, "Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?" I’m absolutely knackered from my French self-defence class last night. I’ve never run so far in all my life. An elderly man was invited to an old friend’s home for dinner one evening. The friend was impressed by the way the man preceded every request to his wife with endearing terms such as: Honey, My Love, Darling, Sweetheart, etc. The couple had been married almost 70 years and, clearly, they were still very much in love. While the wife was in the living room, his friend leaned over to say, “I think it’s wonderful that, after all these years, you still call your wife all those loving names.” The elderly man hung his head. “I have to tell you the truth,” he said. ”Her name slipped my mind about 10 years ago, and I’m scared to death to ask the cranky old bat what it is.” I bought my girlfriend a fridge for her Birthday, not the greatest gift but you should have seen her face light up when she opened it! I lost my job in the alarm clock factory, I kept sleeping in America: a country where people believe the moon landing is fake, but wrestling is real The popularity of origami has increased ten-fold I was reading an article last night about fathers and sons and memories came flooding back of the time I took my son out for his first pint. Got him a Fosters ….. he didn’t like it – I had it. Then I got him Carlsberg, he didn’t like it so I had it. It was the same with Guinness and Cider. By the time we got down to the whisky I could hardly push the pram home I like birthdays, but I think too many can kill you. My girlfriend told me she was leaving me because I keep pretending to be a Transformer. I said, “No, wait! I can change.” I phoned the local ramblers club today, but the bloke who answered just went on and on. The recruitment consultant asked me 'What do you think of voluntary work? I said 'I wouldn't do it if you paid me.' I was in the jungle and there was this monkey with a tin opener. I said, 'You don't need a tin opener to peel a banana.' He said, 'No, this is for the custard.' I told my mum that I'd opened a theatre. She said, 'Are you having me on?' I said, 'Well I'll give you an audition, but I'm not promising you anything.' I visited the offices of the RSPCA today. It's tiny: you couldn't swing a cat in there. I was stealing things in the supermarket today while balanced on the shoulders of a couple of vampires. I was charged with shoplifting on two counts.
