    Richard is referring to the crankshaft center bearing support plate bolts . What year is the bike ? Read Richard-7 manuals and you can see the pictures.

    Had a great cold 77 mile ride today. So nice to be able to say the bike ran flawlessly. 1200 rpm idle all day. 40 degrees F, mostly sunny. Wildlife abounds.

    Short ride in the sun?? Weather forecast sunny all day. Half an hour in the dry 50 mins in heavy rain and no waterproofs. Total riding time hour and a half. Total cleaning time 2hr 30min.
    I blame Brexit

    Great weekend, watched Wales dispatch England for a historic win. Good drive back, cut the grass for the first time this year. Beautiful day, about
    14 degC so out on the 961. Have had a couple of starting issues and cutting out, but took it for a blast around the country roads about 40 miles and became a member of the cafe racer ton up club

    2019 has begun for me. Blew the dust off and took my steed out to buy an MCN today. Sunny day, speedy roads and nothing fell off! Result :)

    Sad news Blighty but we'll be there on Sunday to catch up on diagnosis and cheer you up a bit. Might even shell out on a cuppa for you.

    Mine is 4 years old with 9.3 on the clock and have had two breakdowns in that time. Fortunately the AA got me fixed at the roadside on both occassions.

    We’ve seen a few ring gears come apart. Hopefully not that. If not, drop bottom sump plate and see if anything falls out. Like crank bolts. Hopefully not that either.

    Keep us posted. Sorry to hear Richard

    Sorry to hear that, Richard. How did you get home? Curious as to what Stuarts problem was. Relay backed out? Always carry that 5MM hex key with you. I carry the 5 for the seat bolts and the 3MM for the IAM flange.
