Excellent. I know I bang on about stuff like this but I see so many fucked up bikes that have been buggered by people who 'Know what they're doing' I just like to ensure that people understand you can't just 'Fix them like carbs'.
Actually I was 'Loomed over' the other day by a new owner of a small tank Stelvio who I just happened to meet and I asked him if it was rollerised? He told me the whole flat tappet problem was shit and if I'd just used a high zinc oil I would never of had problems. I pointed out that the oil I use has always been higher in zinc than most others on the market and I'd actually seen hundreds of engines and not one of them was OK beyond 20,000km and he told me I was an idiot who didn't know what I was talking about.
He then fired up his bike which had a horrible 'Messed with sneeze' at idle and clattered off back towards Canberra. Now while I'm not one to judge, the fact he didn't have all his teeth, was obviously 'Barber Averse' and wore a leather waistcoat over his waxed cotton riding jacket that made him look like some sort of medieval gamekeeper with personal hygiene issues aroused a strong suspicion in me that he just might of been a mouth-breathing simian for whom life was going to be an inexhaustible torrent of misery and disappointment.
