MOT Time

The CBF is due its annual MOT (UK vehicle check) So it's a good time to do a few jobs. Firstly the right side fork seal was leaking. This goes with the territory if you're going to ride in winter. I had gaiters on the bike but they split - I'll get a new pair. Luckily the seals are easy to change.

This is why you should change fork oil - this is 2 years/12,000 miles old

Next the rear brake shoes & tyre.

A 2007 bike with a drum brake? - how quaint. But it works well and is unaffected by the weather which is more than can be said for the front caliper.

  1. I gotta copy your wall mounted bead breaker. Looks like it folds up out of the way as well...genius as they say.
