  12. this might be a good place to ask if anyone has a spare throttle body for a 9-3 turbo.2001 2.0 i think,replaced the dic,but it seems over revvy,and cuts out.
  13. im looking for a 4-1 exhaust to fit a suzuki gsx 750 es,a long shot i know,or something i could make fit. im also looking for a rust bucket japanese bike,for winter project,the seized scabby basket case variety is probably where i want to be. any offers?

  17. i had the pleasure of owning an rs1600i about 14-15 years ago,i thought i had an xr3i.i removed the fancy rocker cover,and towed it to mcguinesses in stoke on trent and got 40 quid for it,the engine had seized,i got the logbook a couple of weeks later and wept,but i got £140 for the rocker cover. ignorance in yoof was my suffering.when i went back the car was merely a shell.with just battered panels,soggy interior remnants,and someones dole card.
  18. i would drive a meastro all day everyday,what year/mileage is it?
  19. ive not seen the bodge,but a get back to the depot bodge.the bodge i heard of was propshaft mounts detaching from a coach chassis,the bodge consisted of a length of scaffold tube and ratchet straps around the broken mounts to hold it all in place back where it should be,the bus made it.
