We are not here to sell records  ;D

Nor to foist our own moral standards on others I think.

I can't actually see an icon for bollox at the top of my screen...

Ooh! More to your set up than a normal Garmin one. None of my Garmins have ever had a separate box like that, just a mount with cable that goes to special connector in front of battery mount or direct to battery in my case.

It still might be worth pulling the right side tank panel off to see what is where. I can't imagine anyone took the tank or airbox out to fit that box so I imagine the cables simply pull through once you get them disconnected from wherever.

Go on, you know you want to...

So, half-a-mount salesman then  8)

A couple of screws each side of the tank panels, pull em backward one at a time and Bob will be along shortly to complain as usual.

I think the power consumption is worse if you are in reverse drive all the time...

Lots in here if you do a search.

The battery cover option is rubbish if you wanna see the screen, too low and out of the line of sight and don't even think of a tankbag...

Plenty of bar options. Hornig do the gizmo that goes in the inner end of the bar, either side and works brilliantly.

They and others also do an option to mount it in place of the badge in the centre of the bars. Bit low for my liking again.

Who's Who? / Re: Hello from the grey island of Britain

Hi and welcome to the madhouse that is EuroKClub.

You seem to have come to the right place despite appearing to come from the wrong place; the grey and rainy isle of Britain is sweltering in gorgeous, brilliant sunshine and is so dry I'm having to water my goldfish.

And no telling porkies about the weather in Bristol, I can see your skies from my garden and it is glorious there too  8)

The miserable bit is all down to you though  ;D

I think you'll find that overflow tank is the thermostat housing and the large circlip holds the lid on with its rubber 'O' ring seal and stops the whole shooting match dumping the contents of the rad on the road.

I'd get a new new pdq...

...item 3, part no. 17117676963, a couple of quid or the breakdown service. You call it Chimp DiY and you left it?  Proper Chimp then!

Mine had 'papier-mache' type yeuk in places. Soaking with plain water and working at it did yield results.

Old stock?

Either way, they should have a rubber 'bung' and not a bloody nut and bolt to wear a groove in yer tyre.

10
Is it an old hugger Andy? I bought mine new in 2016 (off the original importer) and it has a 'pull-through' arrow-head type rubber bung with no nut or bolt.

It might be worth contacting the importer and seeing if they can supply a new type for you.

Anything changed recently?

I keep blaming idle issues on the Idle Control Valve and I am nearly always wrong.    :D

Not a good look for business shirts...

In Spain, a few guys asked where I got my shirts pressed. They wouldn't believe that they came out of the box looking so good. And for things that matter, like business shirts, I never roll it just makes the wrinkles more obvious.

When my folded shirts go in the stack I KNOW there are no creases apart from on the folds. When you roll, the material has to wrinkle, it's a law of physics.
