Hi, sorry it's taken so long for me to reply.
I have looked at my spark plugs and all 4 are black in colour. Is this bad??

That depends...... either the bike has only run for short periods of time, (engine not getting hot enough to burn off the sooty deposits) or the choke is stuck on, or the float heights are set wrong, or possibly the idle mixture screws are set wrong, or even the spark plugs are the wrong heat range for the engine..... (they're not Chumpion are they???)
Personally, I would start with the float heights.....

ps....... the jets are the correct ones, are they??

Scott Leathers- Any Good???

I've been looking for m2m leathers and been asking around...there is little in the way of current reviews for Scott Leathers.. 2015-16.

I mailed them at the end of Nov 15 and never got a reply, I e mailed them again Wed 3rd Feb reply as of Friday 5th...called the office number listed on their outdated (2006) website, let it ring approx 20 answer machine, so couldn't leave a message. Gave up at that point and hung phone up.

I will call them once on Monday, I'm actually curious now if they are still trading, I discussed this on our S1000RR Forum, couple of the guys had exactly same issues, zero communications...Not sure I want to give them any of my money, can you imagine if you had a complaint... one call they get, that's it. The other lads went elsewhere...NOT impressed so far.

If a company is that bad at handling comms in this day and age then they really don't deserve my business tbh...

ONE CALL... let's see if anyone picks up the phone. Let you know how I get on.

turbo bike insurance

Thanks for the replies guys. I have had insurance on a fireblade in germany inside of 2 years so all might not be lost - although I doubt many companies take overseas NCB.
As to the project - I'd be doing a mild setup making less power than a modern superbike - more as a tinkering/engineering project than anything. Of course I bet most insurers wouldn't view things that way.

Share advice and tips, routes and places to go and stay
We're on about a trip to scotland based around fort william with a view to riding up to applecross and possibly fitting in a visit to a distillery as well. i would welcome any ideas on good biker friendly hotels or guest houses .

You don't say where you are coming from but a couple of ideas for the route up that we have done are.
Penrith - Alston (Hartside café) - Brampton - Longtown - Gretna.
If you fancy a longer journey at that point try - A75 past Dumfries to Crocketford, then up to New Galloway then Ayr, or even better New Galloway back to Newton Stewart the up to Girvan - Ayr.

Or there is
