My oil light has come on now and then over the years every time it's been the switch or wiring. Never had a major oil leak. Apart from, last time the switch went. I'd never stop because of the light, but the light might make me look down and behind to see.
If matt larrett was behind I'd keep going

Yea, Tom did have 2 shocks (I can almost hear Miles now.....One left and one right), he had one for dry and one for wet. The one I got with the bike was the Ohlins, which he had set up for the wet. I think the other had been loaned to him, but very happy with the 996 Ohlins shock and not a big job to change the spring etc.

Anyway, now it's confirmed, there is an round (option) up here at Knockhill this year, only about two and a half hours from home for me, so I will get there early and get the battered, deep fried Mars bars and Pizzas ready.

Yep, his Dry shock was the one off Wilf's RS that he raced in Sound of Thunder a few years ago. Wilf only lent it to him.

fuel tank breather

think i've sorted all the lock wiring and tank bracket
- wondering if the fuel tank breather is ok using 1 of the motoX style short stubby pipe with valve on end as they designed for lot more falling over than we do?

Used one on mine Miles with absolutely no problems. In fact I think James (22) still has it on the bike.

thanks- that's the one for me then- now to try and decide if the more expensive ones are better than the cheap ones or exactly the same at a rip off price

Talking about the fuel tank breather. The actual breather nipple on my tank has come loose and is able to be pulled away from the tank only slightly but has anyone had the same problem and got any tips on how to do something about it.
Or is it not a problem and I shouldn't be worried about it? I keep thinking it's going to completely pull out whenever I disconnect the pipe to lift the tank up
