Re: Gone but not Out.. viva Forever.

Sad news Azam, but very glad you're sticking around still. :)

Question is, will the new owner be heading this way, and what's going to scratch that itch now?

Re: Brix's R3. 'Blue Magic'

If the taper spins in the joint pop your jack under it and then applying a little bit of pressure seats it into the taper and stops it turning. ..fiddling with jacks, clamps and all sorts.. First thing I tried, but alas did not work. :( Unless my memory is not what it used to be, Blue Blistering Ba...

Re: Brix's R3. 'Blue Magic'

The hub was finally fitted on Sunday, and I can report that it has indeed fixed the issues I had been having and is now nice and smooth once more. :D It got to the point where it felt like it was affecting the steering and ride to some extent, though I have no real way of proving that! First things ...

If the coils are testing okay is the issue not likely to be the harness adapter?
You send back the whole lot, leads and harness included. They then test it together. :thumleft:

I also had the same coil issue, and the same outcome as Wiggles after sending them to RR for testing. Still haven't got round to refitting and testing yet though.. :oops:

Definitely worth that coil swap first, hopefully it's just that. Was it sounding rough even when cold?

You never know, I wouldn't like to say I'd never had a loose nut.. :lol: Front brake disc change now complete, all went well, and now have the Mintex discs and M1144 pads working very nicely. The old discs were a little rough around the edges, though may be recoverable with a skim.. discs1.jpg While...

Any kind of steering to the right and I can hear it, if steering left or straight it's not noticeable. :-k

Re: Brix's R3. 'Blue Magic'

Time for an update I think! Having not made much (any) progress with anything other than increasing the long number under the speedo, I took a day off on Tuesday to do some bits and bobs. Other than the numerous pile of things I've had available to do, there were two new reasons for needing a day of...

Re: South Wales Run & Meet - Saturday 13th October, TBA

Sorry for the lack of news on this one folks, and to top it all off I can't even make this weekend due to a friend's 40th bash.

I can still probably book something for Saturday, or postpone until the 20th?
