Recommended Posts

Credit due.

You did your mate proud, the bike proud and the forum proud, very much in that order.

People like you should get much more recognition.

Havent updayed for ages now. So, ive covered iver 2000 miles since it’s MoT early April. I took it to the TT. Had an issue with the oil cooler but apart from that it went ok. Engine turns out to be good except smoking on overrun. So that will need sorting out at some stage. Major issue last Sunday. The bottom engine mount where the side stand assembly attaches to snapped.

Massive design flaw on Harris's part. A M8 modified the arrangement on his before it saw any weight.

Do you know, ive heard of 4 now that have snapped. I plan on re engineering the side stand mounting point. Maybe make a bracket that picks up on 3 or 4 positions. Do you have any details at all? Thanks.

I hope nothing bad happened when the bracket snapped to this exceptional beauty.

I hadn’t checked back on this since you first started. Fantastic work and tribute.

Cheers, Zweihammer
