Registration has just come through from the DVLA, really quick about 10 days.
I think I have used up all their DEY registrations as this one is RHH.
Just the number plate to order and the muddy Devon roads beckon.

RHH is in the 'F' suffix series (1967/8)

Default Stale fuel

It just goes to show how much difference fresh fuel makes. I went to take the bike out for a nice muddy Devon ride, and would it start? Not a chance, I kicked and kicked removed the plug, fat spark cleaned it, still no action. Drained the tank and carb, fresh fuel, started first kick. I did not think I had left it that long however it must have been longer than I thought.
Has any one used Briggs & Stratton Fuel Fit Additive/Stabiliser to help keep the fuel in good condition?

Just had a similar problem with my Honda mower i have had for about 6 years, 3 years ago the petrol tank started leaking as the fuel ate through the plastic type tank!!no trouble for the next 3 years then it started to keep stopping after a bit of use and in the end would not start at all found the fuel pipe clogged , after that it went for another couple of months , then in the end yet again refused to start, in desperation took it to a friend who has a mower repair business, and took off and sonic cleaned the carb !! no more probe crudded up with the golden film of are old mate Mr Ethanol deposit. yet again he strikes.

Default All done

I went for a ride on the Anglian Enduro, not as comfy as the Ranger or TFS Trail as the pegs are higher.
I put a box on the back to hold a large battery for the lights. Although the Electrex World ignition has
lighting coils the amperage is low and it is good to have a back up system. All works well apart from the lack of a side stand
