I like the Scottish rallies Berwick, Millport especially and also the European gigs are good if ya get the chance you have to do the Dutch Lions rally in June family friendly too and a great bunch of people.
enjoy Loon-e I love doing Rallies the further the better for me really enjoy the ride. unfortunately not there this year as double booked with a rememberence ride on sunday morning. hope to do a few next year down the east side of the country now that we have bought a camper van for the missus to follow in!!
yes Sime it is an LML tank which as you say has the 5 threaded holes for the metal sender surround. looking at it I don't think there is anyway the EFL 1/4 turn will fit. you may have made my mind up now though on the fuel tap as was undecided on whether to go sip fast flow or BGM equivalent. the BGM may work better for the low fuel light. and H you are right about accuracy the only time my fuel gauge is correct is when I fill it right up but 10 miles down the road it starts flapping side to side like a weeble on acid. best guide is currently when light comes on I have roughly (depends how I am riding etc) 12 miles till I have to push it!!
I have purchased a new fuel tank without the autolube bottle as I have done away with mine. the question is will the LML sender unit work on my EFL loom/speedo? noticed it is different on the new sender to the old plastic one. any ideas?
I have been having a discussion with a mechanic friend of mine who has assured me if I buy a write off that cannot be put back on the road as the same bike, this can be chopped and be reused as a unique one off build and given a new number plate/V5 etc. anybody else know if this is correct?
not long back from a cracking scooter rally that in fact is right up there as one of the best I have been to. Rode the 200 miles from Gateshead to the island and was a cracking ride with some lovely scenery. here are a few photos of the weekend not many as phone died. s1382.photobucket.com/user/markthfc1/library/Millport
Well what a cracking weekend it was I will need at least a week to recover. some cracking scoots, lovely people, good music and far too much beer. You missed out on a proper belta cant wait till next year. oh well next stop Millport rally at the end of the month!!
I may be wrong here but will you not have to do you CBT on a 125 geared bike to be able to ride a geared scooter above 50cc, just trying to think back to when my son done his I am sure that was the case. may be worth checking!
new 200 piston etc fitted with 125 main jet and the other jets are standard 200, scorpion exhaust fitted starts and runs but wont idle and the idle screw when turned makes no difference. any ideas? idle screw is set currently at around 2 1/2 turns.
haha love Amsterdam but that's the reason we stayed away from it been so many times. is nice to see different towns & villages. planning on a ride to Italy in 2018 so may not attend next year will have to see how the savings are!!
sailed from North Shields to Amsterdam then a 70 mile journey to the Rally. North Shields is only 5 mile from where I live so that's the easy bit. took 7 hours to get to the rally as we took the coastal route and had multiple stops in small towns on the way and one extended stop whilst my clutch cable was replaced by my willing assistant!! other than that we just had the rain to contend with 10 miles away from the rally.
arrived back in blighty yesterday morning and I am still recovering cracking weekend. this is one of the best rallies I go to cracking place and locals are spot on and super friendly get yaself next year if ya can you wont regret it.
