Here's a useful tip - A two litre plastic pop bottle is .006" thick, and makes an excellent gauge for setting the running clearance between the rotor and stator.


Monday and despite feeling a tad unwell, I sorted ( fingers crossed ) the Goldie out.

Had a curry up the Jolly Sailor - with any luck it will kill this "tickle in the throat".


Well the rest of the week was shite.   Sore throat, deaf in the left ear, not much better in the right,

bunged up and generally feeling crap.   As you can imagine, the bike never went out on test,

and I wasn't feeling up to the Newark show on the weekend.


All in all - a week lost.
