I'm supposed to use different passwords?

Hell, I'm still using the one for the nuke missiles I used to work on  8)

The rate of charge whilst on the bike is very low. The problem with a charger is that it allows the battery to draw more charge than is good for it...

I don't fully understand the technology but if you Google the facts you will come to your own conclusion  8)

OK. I gave up way back when! The guy stopped responding.

However, I have another small, independent carbon outfit I am using for some small-run posh bits for another bike.

I want to open a conversation with the chappie about whether he a) can and b) will attempt to make what we all want; or at least wanted way back when this thread was started.

Since then, some members have left, some have given up on the K, but others have joined and the number of K's on the road is still about the same and with increasing age comes the almost inevitability of the dreaded radiator crap-up!

So, before I call and make an arse of myself, again, hands up for those who would be interested...

Numbers affect development costs and purchase price so this is a finger in the air job to see if it is just me or me and Matt or me and Matt get the idea.

But don't go getting your hopes up  8)

That's another £25 spent.
Thanks Brian

Sorry Ron...that's how I got to be so poor and have so much 'stuff' too  8)

Yes it is strictly true...unless you get one of the very new very-new-fangled batteries which are now being developed to include the fancy electronics inside them to allow charging from 'ordinary' chargers.

Go back and read the post from Turbobevy about 7 or 8 posts ago on Jan 15 and follow the links to where the makers of the new new batteries are talking about this very subject.

Ah, OK. That was a great idea David, I like the umbrella pattern idea.

Unfortunately not. The 'nozzle' gives the same adjustable pattern from Mix through Min to Max, just like the normal wand with the same 'nozzle'.

But, instead of the nozzle merely pointing straight ahead, which is great for patios, walls and car bodies etc., this nifty thing has the full 180 deg rotating elbow joint which also rotates about the wand centre-line through 360 degs.

This makes it perfect, when fitted on the end of the normal extension arm, for getting underneath your car body and into the wheel arches to get the acres of farmer's field off and into the drains. Also perfect for under the bike mudguards, getting the jet, on minimum, directly square on into the radiator of the bike to rinse it through and a squillion and one other uses I haven't thought of yet.

Oh, and hiding round corners and soaking your mate/partner/wife/hubby/child/dog etc. without revealing yourself to similar treatment.

That's it! It's a gun that fires round corners  8)

You followed the link and you ask what it is?

When I fitted a used TPMS/alarm unit to my K13S it worked immediately iirc.

Great news about all the free stuff coming your way. The beers are on you now  8)

The best bit of motorcycle kit I ever bought - probably...

180 x 360 degree angular coverage. That's the whole of the northern hemisphere.

The box it came in even had a piccie of a very filthy KTM on it  8)

For £1600 if I lived next door I'd come and open it for you on command.  :)

There are so many fun life-enhancing things you can do with £1600.

For £1,600 I wouldn't touch it. It fell on the head of the previous owner twice before she had it 'professionally repaired' by a local chappy. Two big wood screws through the head rail into bare mortar in the brick above...

And having an auto garage door is one of the many fun life-enhancing things you can do with £1,600.

And, even if I paid you to open it, the vets bills for your head would be massive and it still wouldn't be secure, or warm, or draughtproof or even automatic while you were in intensive care 8)

On that particular journey, the morning train was delayed for half an hour because some cows got out of a field and one head-butted the previous train which was 'on it' at the time and well over 100mph.

On the way home after a tedious day in someone else's office, my train hit a cow, apparently from the same herd, but at a much more reasonable speed, about 70 according to the driver. The result was the same; one dead cow, one very delayed train and lots of very sick and screaming passengers in First Class as they sat and watched milk, beef mince and intestines drip down their carriage's side windows.

'Burgers and milk shakes anyone' went up the cry from the bar steward...

The Secure by Design website is here...

...with the Aluroll page here...

I'll measure my joist height on Saturday and let you know how much you need above the top of the door opening.

Here... the standard height of the housing 'box' that goes above the door. 360mm is the tallestbut you don't say how tall your door opening is but you can work out if you have enough clearance from the table half-way down the page.

Changed the start relay he said...for £270  :o

OK Tom. I'll bring the Honda 250 and see how you cope with 25 bhp  8)
