Re: Lift table or stand

Following an expensive bout of damage to another car when jacking the Triking to get it onto boxes made from Scaffold planks I immediately downed tools and sent for a set of these and can thoroughly recommend them and the company that supply them. https://cjautosheywood.co.uk/product/hydraulic-car-r...

Re: Guzzi Diag

We are done! The new Triking runs and boy does it run. The problem was solved by an old email from a good friend. I had noted that the fuel pressure was around the twenty PSI mark and thought no more about it. I understood when replacing the standard, bike Fuel Pressure Switch [FPS] it was used str...

Re: Guzzi Diag

How to switch off Lambda probes that is the question? Does the 2002 Cali EV even have probes? Nigel [PO] took Lambda probes out and told me it had been an experiment and he had replaced them with bungs.

I have had the TPS in every imaginable position including set with the previously mentioned GD. It is running lean, very...

It was a good turnout today and good weather too. Picture here: Pat and Carol in the cars: Stuart and Pip's Red Type 1, Type 2 Squeaker in Aircraft Grey but looking for all the World like White and Tony and Carol's Type 3. I nearly didn't make it though. Went to start Squeaker and the battery was to...

Re: Security devices

I don't know the record of thefts of a Triking but my take is that with such a specialist vehicle which attracts such attention when parked or travelling and the difficulty of moving without a covered whale tail truck or similar flat bed transport it must cut down the wish to steal. However a batter...
