In my naivety, are you sure it's pressure from a head area?

Are you confident there are no obstructions in the coolant system preventing free flowing around 100% of the circuit causing the restricted fluid finding an alternative route and thus causing the pressure you're experiencing?

Well I cocked up from the looks of things Smile

I have the wrong overflow going to the res bottle, that pipe should on the RRW return to the thermostat housing. and the small pipe is the res bottle. So wired it up wrong hence my problems Smile silly me

Thought that was odd why the fluid was discharging before the cylinder jacket had warmed up then noticed the pipe work. Keep plugging LC.

just a precautionary note LC, public roads and public videos... not that any of us break the speed limits. It is admissible as evidence

Yes was trying out my new external mic, could only mount it right next to my mouth so lots of breathing sounds.. Need to try and relocate it for next time. Did enjoy the ride, seems like a dream now haha, good job I recorded it to remind myself it did actually happen Smile

All legal 89 dont know what you mean.... Wink the speedo is inaccurate anyway will need a healer as the gearing is to cock plus the clocks dont match the speedo sensor so need to see how far out it is later on and perhaps add a healer if needed.

That was a defence in a job I recall from a few years ago. Plod stopped bike for number plate, end can etc. They saw it had a camera fitted and seized it (illegally in my opinion) and tried to prosecute the rider for exceeding speed in a restricted zone.

At court he claimed the bike's gearing had been altered without his knowledge -previous owner-and it was only after the stop at the roadside did he take it to a shop and have it checked. Wisely, he had OEM sized sprockets fitted and the speedo then checked on a dyno and brought the relevant docs to court.

Case dismissed with words of wisdom for the officers involved regarding seizure of evidence etc.
In other words, they should've nabbed the bike and tested it themselves lol


But yeah, be careful.

Whether camera, footage etc are seized legally or not, you could be causing yourself grief if you've done nothing wrong.

Interesting one that Iggy, I wouldnt post up any obvious speeding, nothing which is going to get me in trouble in that vid. I was worried last year as was pulled over with some friends after doing some very quick riding with the camera on.

 They saw it running but didn't mention anything about it, just measured our plates and sent us on our way. Was crapping it though so wont be doing that again!

If the camera is not covering your clocks (speed and/or revs) then the footage won't give bang-to-rights evidence per se.
But.... a viewer could use landmarks such as lampposts as reference points.
If plod knew where the road in the footage was, they could identify the lamposts, go measure the distance between them and very accurately calculate the speed of the bike from the footage and I daresay a court would maybe accept it but don't know of any cases where it has actually been done.

Without reference points the only thing they could use your nun-numerical footage for would be careless/wreckless etc, ie overtaking, crossing white lines on road, filtering etc.

I guess your roadside attitude is the next best thing to have if stopped lol

If you have a camera fitted and active, and you're stopped for something such as a dodgy overtake that you think you may just be given advice for and then a ticket for the numberplate,can etc, I'd suggest you swallow, admit the misdemeanour, ride away with the £30 ticket or whatever it is these days and thank your lucky underpants they didn't grab the video footage and throw lots of other moving offences at ya lol

Your absolutely right, we all took out lids off as we were speeding slightly 38 in a 30 I think they said. And were very friendly etc, plus they were bike cops so bit better than car traffic cops.. Buddy had a tiny plate and we were speeding but they agreed to let us go with a caution.. There are some reasonable coppers out there Smile Also helped we were all old farts im sure  haha

It was the 96 ones Stephen, what ever model that is... Not the rrw anyway. You need the ones which match your frame.

mine is a rrx and the triangles are rrx but there seems very little clearance between the dogbone and the bottom of the shock so was wondering if you used the ones of an ealyer model , cheers anyway

Thanks chaps.

Well shes all legal and have been out for several nice rides on her now. 

There's lots of weight on the wrists and the suspension seems very hard but get her on the twisty's and she handles amazing, really transformed. So shes never going to be a touring bike but that suits me, shes the perfect Sunday afternoon bike.

Scares the shit out of me too as it Fing fast!!! wheel is in the air through the first three gear, feels twice as quick as before and cant see me ever needed more power now. All I want for her now is the HM quick shifter for those full power gear changes Smile
