    winter body work

    Has it been painted or wrapped? Whichever, it looks really nice

    Winter Maintenace/Mods

    Yes, that is the problem part. Taken from the GBS Owners Facebook page, the fix is to replace the rod end bearing that the gear lever shaft goes through.

    Hi Jez, no it an MT75 with the GBS quickshift fitted. It is a known weakness of the earlier versions they made. Apparently the later versions don't rattle.

    I can see how that would work as if I hold the lever over to the left or right with a small amount of pressure, the rattle stops.

    Wow, is it really 3 years since my last blog post!! As for the mirrors, I found they are a little restrictive view wise and I went back to the original mirrors for the Switzerland trip as I had bags blocking the centre mirror. I might swap them back as I do like the smaller form factor and I am happy with the rear view compromise.

    I want to fix the gear lever rattle as it is annoying me! I have the bits, I just need to find the time! I would like to tidy up the paintwork, but funds are too tight at the moment.

    Nearly ready

    It looks good from the picture, good job! Taking it to GBS to put through the IVA is not a cop out, many people do the same. They know exactly what does and doesn't need to be done and work closely with the test centre. It may cost extra but it is a guaranteed pass, or as guaranteed as it can be!

    Kitfest @ Santa Pod 14Th To 16Th June 2019

    This has also been mentioned on the Westfield forum. One of the guys noticed that it was actually just a club stand for the NWKCOC, so they emailed the organiser about a WSCC stand and got the following reply: Hi Kev  It is the same weekend as the Retro Show but it’s own show in another section of the park. More details will follow this week. Santa Pod are setting up KITFEST tickets separately, so hang fire for a week if your looking to book. Will be a great weekend. Regards Robert

    Midlands Area Run Out Sunday 28Th October

    What time would you expect to be in Bourton on the Water and where do you stop? I can't commit yet but I might be able to meet you there and then have the run up to Stratford with you and come home from there.

    Hi Dave, sorry been away in Spain for a week so only just seen this. Yes, I am a paid up member of the WSCC so if you give me the details I can make contact for you if you still need this.

    Pinto 2 Zetec

    The Pinto one will not fit. I am not sure if you need one for the 2B, but on the Zero, I used a Raceline shallow sump. There are others, and I am sure it is possible to modify the existing sump.
  14. Sorry Steve, didn't get there. Had an early start and went for a drive with a mate and had breakfast in Bourton on the Water. Set off from there to come over but there were major hold ups around Alcester so bailed out and headed back home.
  15. I have put it in the diary in case I can get away for a few hours
