Re: Scotland/edinburgh area??

'The Garage' do not have a rotary tester. They charge people £100 and use a piston tester. Their dishonesty with this worries me and makes me assume they cut corners elsewhere. The Mazda dealer in Edinburgh charge £50 and use a real tester with real printed results. I know people hate dealers, but y...

Happy to meet up, think ti would be good if we can get some folks together.

Last month I made a decision that I have to cut back on the track days as I am saving for my wedding :)

Knockhill 2012 Scotland Track Days.

Hey guys, Just putting this out there as I will be doing trackdays on the 25/03/12, 22/04/12 & 20/05/12 (maybe). If anyone else is interested head to their website and check it out.

Re: Aldi Motorcycle / Track day Helmet £30

Great trackday helmet but without sounding too negative, you have to remember you get what you pay for with safety equipment. Yes it may *just* pass ECE 22.05 standards but I would want something that goes above and beyond. Important to note, for MSA UK racing you will need an FIA 8860 approved helm...

Re: Racing Beat Cat-Back Exhaust on a R3

Agreed, look like a seriously nice piece of kit and sounds exactly like what I have in mind (subtle and lower).

Rookie Q, if it's single tip why does it look like two tips?

Re: Air Conditioning Maintenance and the Refill Cans.

The moisture in the air that is now present in your system needs to me sucked out to prevent the compressor being destroyed. I'll find out is Kwik fit do this first (they should!). Updat...

Re: retro fit of satnav, leather seats for cloth and aircon

The aircon will not be any colder, if you feel like you aircon is too warm you may need a re-gas. The 15'c or 18'c you see is the set point for the aircon to switch off and wait for the temp to rise before kicking back in. Its unlikely you would ever want to be 15'c and if you really do then put it ...
