Re: another new north east member

Welcone to the addiction.

Like you I had never considered an MX till I found I couldnt fit in to most British open tops.

Sat in a wee Eunos a few years back and the rest is history.

Re: Mk2.5 Tyre Rubbing on Full Lock

Totally agree with Mm. Some thing is out of kilter, if you cant generate any movement then something has to be bent, either way I would also expect to see excessive wear to the aforementioned tyre. A four wheel alignment check might give you some idea as to what to look at. Have you hit any of the m...

Re: Headlight Cleaning

I have seen this done using 2000 grit wet and dry with half decent results, but for a quick fix I use G2 rubbing compound, not as brutal as wet n dry but you might have to do it again after a couple of years.

Re: GV and Rev 9's Co*k up repair panels....

Re: Mk2.5 Tyre Rubbing on Full Lock

I used to own a 2.5 and never suffered from this. Is she on the correct size of tyre firstly? You dont say if this is happening while trsvelling forwards or backwards but in any case it sounds to me as tho there is a fault on the front suspension unit that is allowing the axle to move backwards and ...
