    Joke

    I cycled into town to buy a bottle of Scotch. I was about to put it in the bike carrier when I thought suppose I fall off on the way home and it breaks that will be an awful waste so I sat down and drank it. Good job I did as I fell off seven times.

  4. After a full rebuild of my PI engine anxiety number one was the first fire up. That went ok.... Did about 1000 miles pottering about, with a bit of EFI mapping. Rolling road session raised the anxiety levels a fair bit as it got a good ragging. That went ok, even very decent numbers. Then, just a week later, a Club Triumph HCR. 1127 miles door to door in about 30 hours. I gave up worrying about half way through that, after 25 minutes at a sustained speed more suited to a German autobahn...... running it close to the half way deadline ..... again. Funnily enough, final running in (aka high speed soak test) of the Vitesse new engine happened in much the same way, just on the M40 rather than the A1.......

    Broken spark plug

    And the water pump and thermostat housing is bolted to the front of the cylinder head, again not a light bit of metal. Best of luck. Regards Paul

  6. Is this a Mk1 or Mk2 ?? the mk1 needs the manifolds off to get at the head nuts/studs really you need to disconnect the manifolds its too heavy with all its attachments and heaving on a manifold when the studs are corroded many fail something there is a good following of problems with stud corrosion makes head lifting nigh on impossible , they can really hold on , so hence the idea to get a stud box and remove the studs before removing the head you can get these from most places , you can sometimes adda double nut lock the two nuts may work i use https://whiterosetools.com/products/bluespot-impact-stud-bolt-extractor-remover-3-8-drive-6-12mm?variant=31598689026110&currency=GBP&utm_campaign=gs-2019-11-07&utm_source=google&utm_medium=smart_campaign&gclid=CjwKCAjwp-X0BRAFEiwAheRuiwiayLL5B4AOYFlHqLEvaOiuDii89J_ZfewaWM474wq1Rlvea4QgbhoCPjgQAvD_BwE pete

  8. It runs, but my attempts to video the first fire up failed, and when I did manage to video the second fire up the sound is totally out of sync with the video. I think I'm better with old Triumphs than I am with video cameras. (Think I fixed the video/audio issue!)

  9. Wim keeps the FOX looking amazing, especially considering the huge KMs he seems to cover every year!
