New Sub forum - How To/Hints and Tips/WIKI
« on: May 09, 2011, 20:56 »
Hi all

well, I am looking for volunteers. It would be great to see some of the collective wisdom consolidated somewhere, and here is as good a place as any. As a first step, I have set this sub forum up to gather up some of the great tech articles from over the years, and as posted currently. How about clearly headed posts as to, for example - rebuilding and setting up Dellortto carbs, changing out swing arm bushings/bearings, modifications, etc., etc.

Contact me through the PM function here if you would like to volunteer to help.

Credit where credit is due, I have borrowed this sub forum idea from the ILOC forums...

Excellent idea Paul, may I suggest that those who are not as cashed up as some and are time poor be also catered for. Not all of us have access to a fully equipped workshop. For instance, how to removed wheel bearings using a rawl-bolt instead of the built for purpose tool, if you get my drift.
No disrespect to those with all the gear intended.

If I had your drift I wouldn't need a rawl-bolt  :laugh: :-[
