Re: Swing arm setting up question

Looks like I'm on my own here so having waited for the right socket to fit my torque wrench to turn up (24mm but only a 3/8" drive) I've gone boldly on and done it. First step was to remove the rear shocks and then strap the wheel/swingarm up so that the distance between the top and bottom shock mou...

Swing arm setting up question

Anyone here have experience of setting up the swing arm ?

Re: Alvis Stawart information

but its an itch I have to scratch!
On my shopping list too when I win the lottery. If you're ever on the M6, 6 miles west of J2, there's one used to advertise a paintball site. You can't miss it - it's parked next to a Sepecat Jaguar ! Visible on google earth

Re: 37 HG 47 - anyone got this Can Am ?

Sadly not - or at least not that I can find at the moment. And yours is only 3 away from mine in the picture !! Pretty good odds it could have been there. The only other reg I can make out is 36 HG 68 (I think - it's a bit fuzzy) plus two already mentioned 37 HG 31 and 37 HG 00. I'll try and get the...
