Well, perhaps that's a bit of an exaggeration, but I thought I smelt some hot oil last week but didn't look too closely and there were no drips but this afternoon. I went out to upload the latest map Mark has sent me and notices there was a nasty mess down the front left hand side of the timing belt cover. Oil from *Somewhere*. Not a huge amount but enough to be messy.

Haven't had a chance to check it out properly but my guess will be it'll be the horrid rubber 'Condom' that covers the seemingly un-necessary extra spigot on the breather box. Why its even there is a mystery but I have a customer who's 'Condom' leaked. We fixed it with a smear of Threebond or some such but he called last week and its leaking again so I'll have to get to the bottom of it and create a proper *Fix*.

Cosmetics aren't really an issue for me but Fuck My Dog I hate oil leaks! Once I get rid of all the whining, deadshit Aprilia owners who are making my life a misery at the moment, (I bought this bike 2,000Km away because it was really cheap and now I find out that it has half a dozen Technical Updates' its eligible for so you should drop everything to do them for me. No, I won't roll it in to the first service for which I have to pay because the dealer signed off on the book for the first service even though I picked up the bike brand new. Yes I know you asked me to give you the Vin# so you could run it through the system but I didn't think it was important. Now stop what you're doing and fix my bike! My reply oddly enough wasn't "How does 'Go Fuck yourself' sound?") I think I'll do the roller tappet swap and give the old girl a bit of a freshen up. What with the cracked breather pipes which I've been too lazy to address after I wogged them up and they stopped leaking I reckon its time for a bit of early winter TLC

Bella gone brucken too!
Found a hairline crack in me custom made exhaust, stripping and re-welding is not the issue.
Its the bloody 2-3 week wait for the plinken ceramic coaters to do their job.

Speaking as a very recent ex-Aprilia owner Pete, sounds to me like you need to look after number one for a change. Life's too short etc.

I've looked after myself. My life is sorted. Just shits me that people who are as lucky as I am, (ie. Being able to spend $20,000 on a motorbike as a retirement toy.) feel it necessary to do the bullshit "Contractural Obligation" piss-flap waving to assert their 'Rights' when simply saying 'OK, I fucked up. Can you make this easy for me and I'll make sure there,s a beer in It for you. Or what about some quid pro quo for your shit." Would make it all good.

When we had our kitchen put in we had a problem with the cook-top. A 'Contractor' was bought in to sort it. It was a shit of a job for which I knew he would be paid peanuts when he left he had a slab of beer in his ute. (Shrug?) my values may be simple but they are easy.

Oh, welcome Sheckel Very Happy
