General Maintenance and Servicing / Re: Sump plug washer??

After filtering all the old engine oil through wife's kitchen sieve (she's out), pulling apart the used oil container, then wading through the sludge, I did find said washer. Phew! There's no time to replace so I will keep an eye on it - it is only a week old. Fingers crossed. IoM here I come! Cambridge - Kettlewell - Feizor - Heysham ferry - Douglas (now a city) - Ramsey  :152:

Cheers, Tone
I understand that "Best Practices" call for replacing the washer after at  every oil change. I can say that I have occasionally not had a new washer handy. I always clean the the sealing surfaces carefully and use a torque wrench when tightening the plug. I have never had a drip. Most of the time I do have a new washer handy. Just saying don't stress over refitting a previously fitted washer.

Hi Stevie
Glad to hear that you got back safely; I did follow your other thread and noticed that you headed off to Normandy (a trip that I would like to do myself at some point); was it worth it, and did you do the “beaches”?
Hopefully Alex is eating up the miles, don’t know where he is, but he should have broken the back of his journey by now.
Well, it seems that you all had a really good trip, the very first Euro-Meet, and maybe it’s whetted your appetite to do more cross-channel excursions, who knows.
I think my days of the long trips is over, but we’ll see…., maybe next year.
Stay safe matey.
Cheers
Geoff

Hi, collected my tiger 800 on Tuesday and well pleased with the ride.
Looking forward to reading and participating on the site.
Does anyone have any information/ opinions on a black widow exhaust can. TIA.

This kit has been used over the last 3 years twice per year for our touring trips. They are very clear giving good coms between rider/pillion and other riders. They have an FM tuning so you can listen to the radio. The system links with your phone, satnav and many other electronic items like an MP3 player. The system is in good condition (has a couple of general use marks) and works perfectly. I also have a few other mounting bits, both charging leads and the full manual. If collected I will set the system up so that you can see/hear them working. If postage is required the buyer will need to pay the postage for recorded signed for delivery.  Asking for £150
Norwich, England

Mission accomplished.
Repaired seat fits.
Was a pleasure to meet Kenny.
Thanks again.

So…., where are the reports and photo’s; are you just holding back from letting us know how good it was, ...

Yes we're all holding back as it just wasn't the same without you Geoff. :003: ......  :164: .....  :112: ....  :008:
(you're unfortunate MIA status was mentioned by some who'd hoped to catch up with you)

Reality :001: we all separated in different directions to do things with none of us heading straight back to the UK. I got back late last Saturday evening and just haven't had any real quality spare time yet and Alex is currently a third of the way up Norway in Trondheim and obviously for him time and internet access is likely an issue .... he only managed yesterday to reply to my PM to him from over a week ago. :028:
