Bit of an odd animal at the moment. Lost all my add ons (adblocker). Not sure if I like it, but will see how it goes

This year I won't be going to the Maldives because of covid19.

Normally I don't go to the Maldives because I can't afford it .

I often refer to the missus as my Trophy Wife.

She's not good looking or anything, she's just got really massive ears.

A mate called and said, "I've just had a huge fight with the wife. Do you have a spare bed for a few weeks until I find a flat?"

I replied, "I've a sofa, if that's any good."

"Perfect," he said, "you're an absolute legend! I'll send her round in a bit."

Anyone need a new set of rubber?

Tyre pairs from M&P; Sun, 17 May 2020 18:07

Its years since I bought from M&P but remember their catalogue fondly from the days before most retailers where online and they were usually very good on prices Thumbs Up

I think BT15's are supposed to be reasonable all round tyres although when I last used Bridgestones they were BT010 and BT012's

BT015 Battlax ZR17 120/70 & 180/55 (note 55 rear profile) @£99.98 delivered

Metzeler Sportec M5 Interact Tyre Pair 120/70 ZR17 58W | 190/55ZR17 75W @£149.98

plus other pairs that might look reasonable too given last time I looked the latest rubber seems to be close to £280-290 a pair

Never used M5's but have used some of the earlier Sportec tyres and found them pretty good in all round dry conditions although as I don't usually go out in the rain I can't comment on that side of things but going by the tread (or lack of it) they look like quite grippy/sporty tyres that should be ok'ish in the wet. =&p=0&fR%5Battributes.productgroup%5D%5B0%5D=Tyre%20 Pair%20Deals

Piston rings CB125s 1973

Thu, 14 May 2020 23:46

So I have received my new Honda Genuine Parts piston rings for my 1973 single cylinder 125s . They are standard size. Question is which order do they go on the piston in ? I know the oil ring as I call it goes at the bottom but the other two rings appear different, one is bright steel, the other is a dark steel and the gap between the ends looks bigger on the dark ring as they lay on my table. Not sure if there is a specific order ??

CB125S 1973 rebuild restore

Piston. How would I know what size rings to buy ?; Sun, 03 May 2020 22:08

Hi. New to the forum and new ish to mechanical tasks. I have decided to rebuild the engine on my 1973 CB125 S. My bike had been sitting since 1992 it has 25,000 miles on the clock. I have stripped the engine and bike with the help of youtube. I am getting the components ready for the engine rebuild and want to get new piston rings for the barrel. Question is : The piston in the engine is a Honda one with 324 4 stamped on it. Would anyone be able to advise, do I buy standard size rings or should I get over Confused size please.
