    A few weeks ago my CS drive belt went heading up towards hamstead. :doh: I walked up and down trying to find it, but I don’t know where it went unfortunately, as I would have liked to see the condition it was in. I guess it had done 35-40k, not sure as there was a clock change at some point...

    Doing my first oil change today. As usual for me something left over. A 30mm copper washer. I've changed the crush washers on the frame and sump plug and the ring on the oil filter, where does the one left over go? It was in the filter box from Motobins. It doesn't fit the dipstick that's a...
