    Re: Rear break soft on RR

    Brembo do a 13mm repair kit. Take yours apart and you can match it. To be honest it’s only €50 odd for a new master cylinder from Brembo. Not via BMW.
  3. Re: Lean angles on track - when do you run out of tyre?

    DMC12,

    Now that's not obvious but easy.... Every Brembo rear master cylinder has a plunger that pushes the master cylinder piston in. First release the small locking nut on the bottom of the...
  4. Re: Lean angles on track - when do you run out of tyre?

    I wouldn’t worry too much about angles of lean. I’ve been riding bikes since I was 16 and I’m still learning each mile I do. You can ride the same bike on the same roads and one day it feels amazing...

    Re: Rotor Bolts

    Undoing any bolt .... heat, heat and more heat around the area the bolt goes into. Hot air gun better than naked flame.

    .... and this will sound strange but partly do the bolt up little tighter...

    Re: Rotor Bolts

    The reason they tell you to replace them is the dry thread lock only works once. There’s nothing wrong with the bolts themselves being used again and again if you apply your own thread lock.
  8. Re: Lean angles on track - when do you run out of tyre?

    Agreed with Zarco and he’s taking it easy learning the track on a road bike not set up for him. Love proper fast riders. I remember Hodgy going out on a ‘race’ CB500 cup twin at Brands GP trackday...
  9. Re: Lean angles on track - when do you run out of tyre?

    Careful on the “quicker you get to full gas” description. The top guys are rolling off front brake at the same time as rolling the tiniest amount of throttle on to keep the bike ‘stable’ and build...
  10. Re: Lean angles on track - when do you run out of tyre?

    Agreed as I said on page 1. It’s more about load than angle. You can get a silly angle of lean without really loading the tyres. It’s when you combine the two is when it gets sketchy. ;)
  11. Re: Lean angles on track - when do you run out of tyre?

    Here's my slow mate whose nearly 70 years old himself and his road tyres on his SP1. Another thing is you run a lot lower tyre pressures the faster you get and this allows the tyres to squidge more...
  12. Re: Lean angles on track - when do you run out of tyre?

    Slowly does it. It's really all down to load on the tyre more than lean angle. I don't lean over anywhere need as much as I used to but mid to high 50's is fairly easy to achieve on the road and...

    Katie, we’ll have flying cars before a maintenance free chain I’m afraid. Have you rung and spoken to Scottoiler? I find they give the best service on the planet bar none. Worth a phone call. I use a...

    Re: Maintenance-free chain

    Any chain can last for eons....... If used with a (don't sigh) Scottoiler. Electronic ones are best. Just dial it in over a couple of rides.

    My only major issue I have with Electric vehicles is the huge mileage you have to do to actually break even with the massive carbon footprint created with making them. A mid sized electric car is...
