  1. I think you have to peel back the fabric at the ends (I'm sure there's a write up on Seloc) On the front cable one end is either crimped or soldered in and the other floating with a nipple. I have made a new end with 2 small M3 grub screws (like a solderless nipple) to crimp the cable in position, if this works ok it will be easy to slip a new cable in if it happens again. I imagine you could do the same on the rear if you can be bothered with the faff, I just like to prove I can do it! 🙂
  2. Isn't the rear cable on the long tail longer? The ones crafty plates advertises on ebay are the front ones I believe (although I think he can make up what you want) Coincidentaly my front cable broke on Friday while traveling back from Bakewell and it was hammering it down!! I had to try and lash it up with duct tape to stop it acting like a parachute! I'm in the process of making a repair on mine by making a slightly different end piece at one end and using a length of new cable, cos I'm too tight to pay 50 quid 😂
  3. Springs are pretty cheap in relation to dampers, so if you think they're ready for change they probably won't break the bank.
  4. Give me lanteryu's Europa anyday, I have a proper soft spot for those!
  5. Thanks, its not going away yet, I plan to get out again before the salt spreading starts if it ever stops raining. Unfortunately I was working yesterday when it was sunny (in Castle Donington ironically!)
  6. I'll be having the floors off and getting it on the lift for a good check over during the winter, so I'll have a good look at the tank/hoses then.
  7. Thanks for that info, I will certainly check that 👍
  8. It's so easy to talk yourself into 'needing' to do these jobs! 😁
  9. I'm hoping to use mine a bit more yet if the rain ever stops! I need to replace/upgrade my gear cables, find an annoying squeak that occurs on acceleration, have the undertrays off and service/check over/clean. I thought the fuel tank was a pretty involved job? mine sometimes smells a bit petroly when I've filled up which always gets me a bit paranoid, but then again so does the coolant smell, the squeak, the temperature guage....................😂
  10. On the K series its 102 deg, I guess it will be somewhere similar but I'm sure someone will have an accurate figure.
  11. What's it like down there during the week? I'm on hol this week, could do with a nice trip out one day - forecast looks good for a few of the days 🙂
  12. I go to curboro' a bit - although not managed it much this year, shout if your going, it might make me get off my ar?e! 😄
  13. I dont really follow cricket but I like to keep an eye on big England matches and I certainly had to keep checking the score on that one!!!
