Hi Holger, I tried the kit ... didn't like it and sold it on. Went for a new fast rack from Vicarage in the UK - much better feel ( weight ), only compromise a slightly bigger turning circle. As it's a modern rack, looking forward to long life with no leaks.

Hi, about to receive my roadster back from a full repaint and will start refitting chrome work. Most is good but rear lights have pitted chrome.

Hi, wondering if any member has experience with having their engine 'Terracleaned'. My Series 3 ( fuel injected ) has at 58000 miles never had the heads off so imagine well coked up over the years.
