  1. Professor Funk (Shoulder Doc) https://www.shoulderdoc.co.uk/article/240#staticlink has a private pratcice in Manchester but also holds a NHS post at Wrightington hospital near Wigan which is a dedicated orthopeadic hospital. Funk has performed surgery on several high profile sport stars including I think Cal Crutchlow. Wrightington (Prof Funks team) replaced my left shoulder in 2011, AC joint excision, ACJ decompression and Bicep tendonisis, putting right the butchery of my previous surgery.

    It's a Techno, you should be able to determine what year from google search images against yours?
  3. Hi Sandy, I may well do, I've just sent you a PM. Steve
  4. Does anyone have details on what us required to fit the 335 exhaust? I have one but its not a straight forward fit. From speaking to a lad that had one it appears to be cut and rewelded near the spark plug. Can anyone confirm?
  5. Hi, looking for some advice, I'm currently rebuilding a 330 Montesa and can't find enough detail in the manual to solve the following: • what is the arrangement with the lower rear shock mount? I've replaced the spherical bearing. Is there a bush that fits inside this or a shouldered bolt? • does anyone have simplified wiring diagram? Does the pink wire from the stator go to a kill switch then to earth? • is it worth moving condenser up to underneath tank? What's the best way to do this? Any help appreciated. Steve
  6. What size are you looking for?
  7. The brake plate with the external lever is from a YZ so it would follow that YZ shoes would fit.
  8. Thanks again, had a quick look at the forum, there's 5 pages of tales of lower than expected MPG. That said, my passat doesn't achieve anything like advertised either! According to the brochure the LWB DCIV Max load length is 1944mm dropping to 1906 at 1.2M bulkhead height so a trials bike on lock should be OK but my KTM EXCF is going to be too long. Like you say a trip to a dealer is going to be the only way to find out for sure, I'm not giving up yet! Cheers.
  9. Cheers, Dealers are useless up here! Firstly the commercial sales only work Monday to Friday which mean staking time off work and nobody ( tried 3 dealers) has a LWB DCIV in to try. Looking to run one as a company car so I can get rid of my van & existing company car, so MPG will be a big consideration and will need 40mpg to make it viable. I'll need to try a bigger dealer in Glasgow.
  10. Does anyone know whether the new Transit Custom DCIV ( double cab in van) LWB will take 2 trials bikes? I know the standard custom will but I need to the 5 seats. Any other general feedback, issues to be aware of? Thanks hughesy
  11. Its pretty pointless me trying to tell you how much better my 14 is than my tricked up 06 so all I will say is try one you won't be disappointed. I honestly believe that Honda are really missing a trick, when Bou wraps the championship a round early they should take 6 crated up standard bikes and get a member of the public to chose which standard bike Bou rides. He may not win but I'd put my mortgage on a podium. Me, I ride one because I appreciate the build quality and riding it puts as smile in my face!
  12. Well I finally got out today!! I had a pretty trick 06 4RT (Laia Sanz Map, S3 Ti pipe, HRC Silencer, Nissin M/C, flat tank etc) previously so any comparison is made against this. I fitted the S3 pipe before going out. After a gentle run to loosen it off I started riding the same sections I've ridden before. Immediately I noticed how much torque the engine seemed to have, (gone is the bark), it seems soft off the bottom but more powerful. One section has a 90 degree turn left up over some rocks with wet peat in between and this was where I noticed how much easier it was to find grip. Suspension and brakes were excellent as before ( no need for the Nissin) I have to say that I was initially a bit underwhelmed (despite the looks) before I'd ridden it and doubted that I'd done the right thing but having ridden it I'm delighted. I'll try and post some pics later and maybe some Gopro footage.
  13. Still not able to fit the Repsol headlight unit supplied with the bike as there is no lower mounting bracket and no replacement front brake hose guide supplied. I've now emailed Honda UK to see what is going on. I'll post pics on Saturday night once I been out, don't see the point of posting pics of an un used bike you can look at them on the press release pics. I've spotted quite a few changes when compared to my 06 4RT.
  14. Erm, well yes unfortunately! Its not all beaches and bbqs here, I have to go to work for a living! Ride planned for this Saturday. Repsol rim tapes and bou /fujigas tank stickers in the box.
