Squires anyone?

Me and Pete have been talking about a run to Squires in Sherburn over the Easter W/E, only day that I can’t make it would be the Saturday.

Any takers?

Pete, your thoughts?

Out on VF today, on the way home started an annoying misfire. Tested the coils, front coil goosed, misfire on pot 4 only. Weird. New coil purchased from flea bay, so all will be good.

What time on Easter Monday?

Cant you bring it down to a more civilised latitude chaps ? The North Yorkshire air is too thin for us southern nancy’s. ;D ;D ;D ;D

hi martin,

the air in yorkshire isn’t too thin, its just not full of smoke like southern air ;D… in all honesty i only have the afternoon to play with so i cant head out too far this time,
We will have to arrange a trip down south, so all us country bumpkins can see how the other half live. 8)

ahhh, evansive, welcome to the world of vf, just when you think your winning they just kick you in the nuts,
At the back end of last year mine had developed a intermittent knocking noise which coincided with a large portion of clutch drag, thinking that both were related and that it was nothing too serious i left it till now to sort out (big mistake) on inspected the clutch i couldn’t find anything wrong and the noise seems to have got worse… so ive spent two very long days in the garage servicing the bike.
changed oil, filter and the ENGINE… i kid you not… you couldn’t make it up :o :o.
So back up and running now, just need to adjust the pilot screws as the rev’s arn’t falling fast enough between gear changes.
looking forward to squires tomorrow, hope you manage to get your vf sorted.
