Go here instead as this forum gets very little traffic. Not likely to get many if any replies in here.

Re: New member total noob just bought a 600srad

There may even be someone really local who has fitted a couple who could help out if needed. (as well as source 1 fairly cheaply)

Thanks.. I couldn't do that myself lol how long does this type of job take to do if you no what your doin or your a mechanic? It may not be the cct it's only from what I've read, when the bikes cold it does not make any noise but onced it's warmed up proper it rattles but not when I rev it up?

Re: New member total noob just bought a 600srad

Should take about an hour if your talking to a garage to have someone do it for you, a little longer if you want to have a go yourself.......but not too much longer!!

Ideal a hour in the garage plus parts shouldn't be to expensive then about 90-100 quid I think it will be, I'd much rather let some one that knows what there doin lookin at it then tryin it myself. It's a tidy bike I'd end up scratching the fairings and all sorts if I tried it lol. Thanks I'm not sure if the rims r original I assume they are.
Thanks for every 1s help.

Re: New member total noob just bought a 600srad

There are many here who didn't know what they were doing who installed them and have gone on to do more work on their own bikes.

IMHO if your gonna have the cct fitted in a garage then have the valve clearances done at the same time, will cost a bit but they will have the valve cover off anyway.

In plymouth your best bet will be 2 wheel technics out at marsh mills, they have been there for years and looked after many a Srad for road and track. Not the cheapest but worth it for his knowledge.
