Re: BAZZA'S IMP'S (LNK, NPN & LYH) - New kid on the block

Thanks as always, Baz. I've made a comprehensive decision based on your comments, and something I've been struggling with - K1100 LT it is for me, too!

Re: BAZZA'S IMP'S (LNK, NPN & LYH) - New kid on the block

BMW K1100 LT engine conversion. Hi Baz, Things are looking quite rosy in terms of LNK. I've noticed there has been an apparent shift from the K100 (RS) to the K1100 (LT) engines in recent months and I would like to understand why a high percentage of admirers of these engines have gone in that dire...

Re: Nods news. Redesigned Cosmic window prop finished

That looks fantastic! Thought about making my own replica of the original but I was very lucky to find an original cosmic up for sale.
I would have never thought of making it out of a flat plate like you have done, with the added 'burst' security.
Well done.

That's real bad luck Baz. Feel for you. Why not also invest in silicone hoses in view of the rapid degradation of rubber examples? Had silicone on my car for 5 years and no signs of age related deterioration yet. There's more signs of wear and tear on me than the hoses!

Will you be setting up some form of power to run the pump after the engine is stopped as this is one advantage of using a EWP, stops heat saturation of the head.

Re: BAZZA'S IMP'S LNK635L and LYH584K

Baz,

If you are going to replace, it might be a good time to invest in a 50A alternator and cabling. This will give the extra reserve for any additional electrical items you may wish to fit.

Baz,

I think Johno is absolutely correct.
I've just measured some of the reject fan belts that I have and there is a relationship between the number printed on the side of Halford's fan belt and the inner diameter in terms of it's length in mm.
