Guess Tony beat me to it - I'm too long-winded :)

Re: Resonance patch

Hi, Simon - do you have a reverse gearbox ? I have a similar, but different problem in that when making right hand turns, without a passenger, I get a loud thrumming noise from the tunnel. It turns out that on my car, at least, there is only about 3 or 4mm clearance between the right hand side of th...

Re: Wind Deflectors

Pretty easy, and if you make them long enough the vinyl/leather "moulding" around the cockpit keeps them at a good angle for deflecting wind/rain.

Re: Wind Deflectors

Hi, Dave - I made some deflectors from about 3mm acrylic , and attached them to the windscreen supports. I made them for when I have my home-made hood on, which necessitated a curve at the top to make them flush with the hood itself. I made the curve by putting the cut acrylic in the oven (when the ...

Re: Front Wheel balancing.

I have read that not all tire sealers/balancers are created equal, and that Ride-On is good and you should stay away from Slime. Ride-On is also made in a number of different formulas, and one shouldn't put Ride-On made for motorcycle tires, say, into a car tire (or vice-versa).

Re: Front Wheel balancing.

What I find strange is the guy who did the test comes to the conclusion that the Ride-on didn't work even though he says he experienced no vibration. He blames it's "not working" on a slight difference in tire wear over 5500 miles - a totally irrelevant measurement which could easily be due to sligh...

Re: Front Wheel balancing.

Ordered some Ride-On tire sealant/balancer for my rear wheel, then I won't have to take the wheel off to get it balanced - we'll see how that works out,

Re: Front Wheel balancing.

After replacing the Guzzi rear wheel on my Triking with one from Alan that takes a car tire, I essentially did the same thing to balance it (I would have taken it to a tire dealer to have it balanced , but didn't due to Covid restrictions/concerns ) I mounted the new wheel, and now , at around 60 mp...

Re: single hoop rollbar

Thanks, Frederick - that's OK , I have too many other things going right now anyway - I was amazed at how tight a turn they were able to make in that tubing without it buckling or splitting on the outside !
