after three months i've got that lovely parcel of goodies from two dads. the first parcel got lost on the way over here to the UK.

anyway i fitted the powerbomb header & std silencer to get out & i believe i detected a slight improvement. boy did it glow though!!!

the stroker S/A tailpipe will be fitted saturday & some proper testing done for the first time since that day in early february.

the scotts triple clamps are a work of art, i've never seen anything so beautiful.

however they are standard & not the short offset pair i ordered. **** **!

so now i'm going to try & flog them over here & find a new dealer over in the USA that can understand an order when it's given to them. anybody know another dealer who can do a good price. i want a Vortex ignition while i'm there.

the damper kit is very proffesional even as a second hand item.

JD, i lifted the needle (DVP) to clip 8 & it went really well. i will put the throttle stop back in & lift it to clip 9 this weekend. that = DKP #4. the DMM needle is due in in the next 10 days.

thanks brian

what ever you do never get the bloke selling the goods to you to put the goods down by even one $. because that would be defraiding her majesty's government.

remember the story of the farmer whop eats some corn & leave's enough to sow for the next crop...

Kev,
You will pay VAT on anything over the value of £30 as it comes through customs.
