  1. Yeah tbh I'm thinking as well that I could partially dismantle it by removing the left hand sub frame tube (#7) which may make it easier to get the bolt out and inspect it. If the bolt is bent they're only a few quid so it'll be no big deal.

    It's an old bike, but I don't think it's a particularly shit one! Like you and PGN1 have both said it does seem unlikely that the frame has bent at such a low speed. It couldn't have taken that much more impact than it would have had I just dropped it from vertical whilst standing still. The bar end and clutch lever did take a hit but the bars themselves aren't bent as far as I can tell and I'd have thought they'd be the first thing to go in a situation like this.
  2. Did you have the front parts loosened? Front axle, forks from triple clamp? Rear axle. Anything that can have done a miss alignment. If a frame attachment bolt is bent I would look carefully that there arent cracks anywhere.

    Bolts that may have never been opened on a bike can be a bit stuck. Maybe applying heat a bit. I have been instructed from friends to use Loctite 243 or similar to most places on bike. This also for them to be easier to open next time.

    Front engine bolts from my Suzuki, the left one is slightly bent, so I need maybe replace it and do that check for my frame too. Crash pads can save bits in a fall but also kill a frame if they clip badly to something on ground.

    The stator cover does not leak, but since it is only 2mm thick to begin with, maybe I need to shop a new one just to be sure. I should attach the next carbon shield better to it too.

    Im thinking of starting season today or tomorrow. Its sunny and nearly +10C. Need be careful, we still have lots of gravel on roads.

  3. I only tried the engine bolts, so I'll spend some more time today going round loosening everything else I can think of. Thanks again

  23. So apparently Boris Johnson is now in intensive care due to a Covid-19 infection. I recall that a few weeks ago he was downplaying the effects of the virus, and decided not to take preventive measures because of "herd immunity".

    Oh the ironing.

    I hope that **** Bolsonaro is next
