Re: Grrr - still cuts out ....any ideas?

Thanks all.

The issue seems to regularly happen. Take it to the shops - return 20 minutes later, start it and it dies immediately unless I keep revving the balls off it.

I've ordered a new dizzy cap and rotor arm for now. Will report back.

Re: Chedder Gorge Meet

Thanks Andy - just picked up the message here. Whilst the laser has now been taxed - I'll have to give Dartmoor a miss this weekend as the wife is on call all weekend (vet) and, tempting though it is, I think i'd be in a whole heap of trouble to leave the kids at home. Cheddar Gorge though - will tr...

Re: Respray

Looking very smart.

Is that a taxi mirror on the passenger side?

I'd be tempted to fit some 'S' stripes :burnout:

Nige / Andy D

Yes - will be good to meet up. I'm just outside Tiverton.

Mine comes off the road at the end of September, which scuppers Haynes.

Might try and go to the "Classic car and bike night" - takes place the last Thursday on the month at the Red lion Shobrooke, nr Crediton.

It’s a...
