  1. Glad I came across this thread last night as I had the same problem. I was reluctant to try and force the spacer out encase I broke or damaged it, I can remember it coming out fine last time I changed the oil so assumed I'd missed undoing something as there was no movement at all. After reading the comments here (many thanks) I knew it was just stuck due to expansion so needed to be forced out. In the end I turned the fork upside down, put the end on the floor and pushed hard on the spring shaft and out it popped. I have now sanded the spacer down, had to take a fair amount off to get it to fit easily in the slider but working as it should now.
  2. I've always enjoyed the Dave Roland - Northern Experts and the Jack Wood, Hipwell trial was always fun although I've not done it for a number of years now, heard it's still good though.
  3. Evening all. I got a phone call from a gorgeous ex-girlfriend of mine the other day. We lost track of time, chatting about the wild nights we used to enjoy together. I couldn't believe it when she asked if I'd like to meet up and maybe rekindle a little of that magic. "Wow!", I said, "I don't know if I could keep pace with you now! I'm a bit older and a bit balder than when you last saw me!" She giggled and said she was sure I'd meet the challenge! "Yeah", I said, "just so long as you don't mind a man with a waistband that's a few inches wider these days!" She laughed and told me to stop being so silly! She teased me, saying that she thought tubby bald men were cute! "Anyway, I've put on a couple of pounds myself!" she giggled .....so I told her to f$£k off.
  4. Managed to get around to fitting the bashplate yesterday, and it was without any doubt the easiest fitment I've done on a trials bike. Hand tightened the two front bolts home, pushed the back of the plate up by hand and fitted the two end bolts, couldn't of been easier.
  5. I'm sure it's all lined up perfectly, not so sure about my frame though. Got new pads as I suspect my old ones are well squashed
  6. This arrived today, well impressed, thanks to Mark from H&D Racing, not looking forward to fitting it though, ratchet straps and hair pulling later
  7. I bought much longer bolts for my bike. Being longer you can reach the holes easier, start to tighten the bolts up so the plate gets close to the correct position, then undo one bolt at a time and refit the original shorter bolts to tighten up.
  8. A young man watched an elderly couple sit down to lunch at a restaurant.He noticed that they had ordered one meal and an extra drink cup.As he watched, the old man carefully divided the hamburger in half, then counted out the fries – one for him, one for her, until each had an even number.Then the old man poured half the soft drink into the extra cup and set it in front of his wife. The old man began to eat and his wife sat watching with her hands folded in her lap.The young man hesitated, then approached the couple and asked if they would allow him to purchase another meal for them so that they wouldn't have to split theirs. The old man said, "Oh no. We've been married for 50 years, and everything has always been, and always will be shared 50-50." The young man asked the old woman if she was going to eat. "Later," she replied. "It's his turn with the teeth.
  9. I've recently bought this Carbon Jitsie helmet, very impressed so far, comfortable and very light, almost feels like there's nothing on your head.
  10. It's this Ebay seller, I've just looked but he's not got any for sale at the mo, so might be worth emailing him. http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/baja0_2/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=
  11. These look really good,

  13. Had to take the dog to the vets this morning after he ate the Christmas tree lights, when the vet looked at him and said he would be alright his little face lit up
