indian rubber dosnt fit too well. advice please?


just found out im still insured till september. 

thats good news.

bad news is my licence has expired. 

what should i do about that?

do i need to

a. take my cbt again

b. blag the DVLA somehow

c. forget about it

d. your answer here


my rear tyre has been bodged with a inner tube, so i was looking at new tyres.

The standard MRF are a bit plastic

These Bridgestone seem reasonably priced at under £160

Might need a new battery as had to trickle charge the old one.

My bike has been stood since 9 months, with old fuel. It seems to run fine but i dont want to fuck her up

My plan was to get all the bits together and

have my local shop pick her up, and let them do the work.

Also theres an intermittent fault on the indicators, sometimes i have to cut the engine, turn the bike back on, then the indicators, and then start the engine.

last spring i serviced her (with help from a mechanic friend who unfortunatly has cut his finger off recently)

anyway i gave her a full service, fitted K&N air filter and Arrow exhaust etc.

I have no plans to get a bigger bike at the moment.

thanks folks

Had most Bridgestone’s at some point.  The 016’s are alright, nothing special.


Ive had the T30’s on all winter which replaced the 023 and have to say they’ve been superb and no sign of squaring off after best part of 6k miles.

Old fuel is not really a

problem as long as the bike runs - typical problems are the lighter fractions tend to volatilize, leading to hard starting and plugged carburetors from the residue.  Add Sta-Bil (or whatever equivalent they sell in the UK), or if you are really worried, siphon it out and dump it in the cage (unless your cage is diesel, of course).
