Re: The T3200E thread

I've had a bit of a break from this, busy at work and cultivating new interests but it was time to get back on it.

Re: Fox shock servicing

That doesn't read very well, even 50/50 use equals 1000 mile checks and a 10,000 mile rebuild interval?
Nah, I'll stick with B6's thanks.

Re: Rear disc kit handbrake cables - last chance!

I was about to post an update :lol: Takeup via this forum and a fb post has been slow and nothing like enough to justify the outlay, I want them to be as keenly priced as possible but even at 20% markup (the lowest I can offer) it would be a money burning exercise at the current level of interest. I...

Re: A Numpty and his 2.1 Project

Apologies for not replying to your pm but I have only been dipping in and out to post nonsense! We only just got the barrels in the other week, pistons *should* be in soon. The bare barrels come in at £175+ vat each, pistons with rings and pin will be a similar price, notched cam and adaptor around ...

Re: Fox shock servicing

Unless the valving* has really "gone off" they should only require new seals and there wont be anything secret about those? Fox make a good product but they are race tech and I'm not convinced that they have the longevity of "production" parts, especially on this damp gritty island! *construction is...

Re: Doka restoration

If only VW had fitted bigger sills to the bodyshell, then maybe their "sticking plaster" approach of patching and plating the roof structure to compensate wouldn't have been necessary? Whatever, nice build and an incredible salvage job :ok The sills are twice as strong as the roof, reinforcing the ...

Re: Fox shock servicing

Sometimes, its just not worth the ballache. Having said that, I have done a reseal service on my Fox bike air spring/dampers BUT no special tools were required and they can only be stripped down so far.

Re: Anyone actually been getting their syncro dusty/muddy?

I'm pretty sure that a few noteable syncronauts have been keeping it real but even before April, any offroad news was pretty thin the ground.

Anyone actually been getting their syncro dusty/muddy?

There seems to be precious little being reported on the forum these days, is it all just going direct to fb now?
There must be some offroading going on, so why is it so quiet?
We have imgur now, so uploads are easy...

Or are dark forces at work :?

Re: Radius rod bushes

The nut is still being torqued up against the inner sleeve and then to the other nut, all pulled up solid.
Powerflex will have worked out the preload for the materials and adjusted the spacer length to suit, the torque is to stop it all coming undone in service.
