Hey Bigbol a puncture repair kit is a great idea as well, buy a good quailty one (i bought a Rema as used by the AA and RAC and sold with new BMW's) and spend a bit of time on Utube learning how to use it propally, better that than trying to work it out at the roadside somewhere! Ditch the fuel bottle, you won't need it, your going to Scotland not Mongolia, there are plenty of 24hour fuel stations etc and that big stash area under the seat can be put to much better use....
Brakey/Mate me and Stripe will be up at J O'G on Friday July 18th for one night before starting an end to end (Ironbutt job, non stop in 24 hours or less) on the Saturday morning if you fancy a pint.
2 weeks and a couple of days before the off. Bike serviced, oil changed etc. I bought brake pads but on further examination I reckon the existing ones have a lot of mileage in them. Chain and sprockets good, tension before the trip. I've done 5k since I got the bike and the chain's not needed adjusting yet. I'm not a hard rider. So, Tryes. Both front and rear have done 5k and still the rear looks good. I don't expect in 3days we'll do more than 2k, do you think the back tyre is up for it? Like I've said, i'm not a hard rider.

drack1: Hi, Question, I am rebuilding my ZRX1100-C2 I have just installed new bearings to the swing arm. Looking at the diagram in the manual the diagram I believe is wrong.
Jan 29, 2017 2:48:12 GMT
drack1: the diagram shows The top hat spacer fitting to be on the left. But it will only fits on the right side running throught the seal and upto the large ball race bearing. Anyone else found this issue. ?

drack1: dodgydal: The C1,C2,C3,C4 Relates to the bikes model year. Eg; C1 = 1997 C2=1998 C3=1999 C4=2000
