Technical and tyres
@smidget Hi, Thanks for your comments, I have heard that a rubber pipe is a great way of removing spark plugs, as I didn't have any I was just showing how I do it with what I had to hand!
You are right, I did use one hand during the filming of the gap, however, I did check it properly before filming but a micrometer would be more accurate.
Back plug, you know your stuff, I did start the bike and not let it run for long which is why I was not too concerned at the colour.
If you take the time to watch my other videos, I would welcome any suggested improvements, I am learning too and will improve with other people sharing their experience.
@oscarthegrouch Neither is mine......... but I have built up a huge collection of NOS parts for the X1...... including Exhaust, Seat, All Panels, Tank, Mudguards, Clocks, Lights and pretty much every other Important bit........just got to get the new Shed......... and stop going on this bloody site...!
Buying and selling
Hi there, I'm new to the forums but looking for some advice on what to get next. Currently have a 1990 ZZR600D but looking for something a little more modern come January.
I have narrowed this down to a early-mid 2000's Yammy R6 or a early-mid 2000's Kwaka zx-6. Mainly looking to find out from people who have owned either of these things like riding position, comfort ect...
It will be used near enough everyday for commuting and distance journeys (400 miles) on rare occasion.
Any insight given will be much appreciated and thank-you in advance.
