The overall translation is therefore ...

Malcom Benall’s Thunderstorm device

This device might be the saviour of the ICE?

Malcom Bendall’s Plasmoid Thunderstorm device apparently saves fuel & drastically cuts emissions.

ULEZ info

:D Just received this info from Fergus regarding the testing for his diesel Tiger. ‘ Totally standard lombardini LDW1003, tier 2 emissions engine. The exhaust is straight through stainless. I think the point is that since the engine only revs up to 3,800 rpm, the NOx levels don't change much from id...

Re: The FrankenBrick Smart BMW build

If he’s breaking it then I’d be interested in the final drive provided it’s got the new ring & pinion gears ⚙️ in it from the German guy.
Needs to fit my BMW K75 build.
Message me if so?

Cheers

We are back at the Blue Ship this year. The field will be open from Thursday 1st June to the 4th. The pub doesn’t open earlier because of insurance requirements on the field.
See you in the field!

The new production of the angle drive can be used for the BMW K75, K100 and now also for the K1100 with Paralever. The translation has remained the same at 1:2.38.

Excessive Smoke & Oil consumption

Re: Winsun 192 anyone

I’ve no actually experience with them but as with the Punsen, they are Chinese knock offs I believe & it’s best to build a bike around an original Yanmar if one is available. I’ve seen fuel lines crack due to not being supported on the copy engines & other things that compromises their longe...

Re: 30th course de côte du Gaschney

Well, Nouveau Moto Club de Munster have responded to my Facebook post by saying 200 bikes have registered for the event. Whether they will all show is another thing but given it’s the 30th anniversary event, even if a few drop out, there might still be a good crowd? Might?
