    In need of a new Coil. the old one as broke were the HT lead goes in and being a captive lead its new coil time. I have found these more modern type where I can replace the HT lead if needed, but not sure on where the wires go on them? anyone know cheers
  2. Novice question about adjusting preload

    You want about 10mm sag without you on the bike. If you have it set with no sag the shocks top out and it will feel horrible.

  9. New swingarm

    I weighed the old setup and its even heavier that Berry the guy that made it said, maybe because i had the one out of the silver engine bike in mine(with 2 alloy spaces to make it fit) my setup is 4.6kg so a big saving
