Something extra in the fuel tank! - 16 Aug 2016.

Today I was going over The Fire Bike ready to take it to the MGCGB Guzzi Festival at the weekend. When I moved it and put it on the stand I heard a tapping sound from the fuel tank and was concerned that the stand pipe I added to the left side fuel tap to provide a reserve capacity may have come off. 181 more words

Gearbox clutch-shaft oil seal replacement - 13 Jul 2016.

Having got access to the gearbox, it was now time to tackle the leak from its front end. Just to backtrack a little, before removing the gearbox I like to tie the clutch arm on the ‘box so it can’t swing about and get damaged. 1,513 more words
