    I recently bought a pair of nearly-new front discs. The fact that they're both LH means nothing to me. I really couldn't care less.
    They were being sold cheap as an unmatched pair for less than half...

    It was possibly a VDO clock - waterproof, made for BMW RT models, and put in an aftermarket gauge holder.

    It's a fairly common fault on various vehicles for many decades back, that a starter pulls down the system voltage so far that the coils can't spark. So when you release the starter button, the...

    Iirc, the early 7s were available as a kit, and perhaps only as a kit.
    Chapman probably didn't have the garage space to make some kind of assembly line or even area at that point.

    A couple of months ago I noticed a new well pump on the corner of a back road. Historically, there may have been one there many years ago, but certainly not in recent times, so I was suprised to see...

    Only difference is, I'd rather look at some umbrella girls than the gnarly weather-beaten fizzogs of some racers.

    105psi should run fine, and if the ring packs are sticking slightly, they'll usually free up with use.
    Only worry about new rings if they dip below 100.

    Not the first time I've read of Rick's steering customers towards their own R-R, as they didn't at the time (and possibly still don't) have a series offering.
    Bad business, in my book.

    On a 135R15 darksider I can if I want to - but the rear is admittedly a bit lower than stock.
    Only drawback is the higher gear ratio resulting from it. That's why it's currently off the bike.

    I've run the odd 130/80-R17 on the rear, and currently running a Metzler radial there. The old GS geometry seems to suit them quite well.
    Of course, the darkside tyre beat the pants off them all.

    The union on the cooler itself will likely be an AN fitting. Best to ditch the adaptors and get a simple AN to *whatever* sized bore pipe it is.
