    Come and shove this DR350 carb in for me before the crowbar comes out! :'(

    I cannot get that duct from the air filter back on.

    I'll try again tomorrow (maybe take the filter out?

    Time Austin Vince bought this off of me.:D

    What Tone said, get the hairdryer on it to make it more flexible. Believe it or not the DRZ400's are even tighter and on a KTM 400/450 you have to remove the subframe . Patience grasshopper :D

    It nearly broke me Bob.

    Did it last night.

    Hot air gun, plastic bicycle tyre lever, pliers and big lever(screwdriver), WD-40..... it's on and running.

    Left fuel on overnight - no leaks.

    Chemical metal on silencer hole just under seat.

    Off back to Eastbourne to look after Queenie again for 6 weeks.

    Just did 8 and was back home for 2. Loads of chores done but not going back down on a bike this time but I will in 8 weeks, hopefully.

    Would have been nice to have one with me in Eastbourne to work on but c'est la vie, as us posh blokes say.

    I'll leave London to simmer....:,-)

    Thanks for the advice, chaps.

    Why won't emojis work properly?
