Motorcycle events, motorcycle wiring & repair, trials bikes & detailing
On Monday we headed back to work after one of the best Breakfast Club’s of 2019!
Sunday 3rd Nov saw so many people braving the chilly air & join us for a celebration of motorcycles, good food, good company & friendships. It was lovely to see so many familiar faces & fantastic to meet so many new folk.
With plenty to catch up with & more testing on the Ducati 848, our week began with Daniel catching up with smaller jobs which needed attention. However, it was lovely to see Daniel taking a quiet moment on Monday night to create earth wiring for the momentary push switches for the XJR 1300 motogadget install.
On Tuesday we reached a bit of a milestone with 1000 Likes on our Facebook Business Page!
It’s such a great achievement & such a recognition of the belief so many people have in mono motorcycles. Thank you so very much everyone for all your support & belief in mono motorcycles & in us. Thank You. All the very best, Daniel & Katy.

During this week, we welcomed the beast that is, the Triumph Tiger 955i.
The Tiger had a full recovery on her battery & in accordance with our customers wishes, her stator was replaced.
When Daniel checked the charging of the new stator, he found it was charging, but as fully as it should. Upon further investigation, the regulator rectifier was found to have burnt out. It is a relatively scenario in Triumph’s that if one goes, the other sometimes follows.
On Wednesday we welcomed a Gas Gas TXT280 to the mono motorcycles workshop.
Daniel met the TXT280’s new owner through taking part in the trails practice at Halnaker Chalk Pits recently.
Having never ridden a trials bike before, the Gas Gas’ owner was very taken with idea having seen the trials bikes in action & having just sold a GSXR, he invested the money in the Gas Gas.
Following a conversation which was spurned through the Bognor Trials Club Facebook page; the Gas Gas owner booked the bike in with mono motorcycles to have the rear caliper stripped & rebuilt. In addition to the caliper receiving attention, Daniel also drained & refilled the gearbox with ATF.
On a similar theme, we welcomed a Pit Bike to the workshop on Tuesday. The pit bike had been put away a couple of years ago & when unearthed recently, wouldn’t run. Upon investigation the residual fuel had well & truly gone off.
Once the fuel was drained & fresh fuel added, the pit bike kicked over, after a little encouragement. Daniel also discovered that the clutch was found to be jammed. After Daniel removed the engine oil & engine bolts; he then removed the clutch casing & clutch plates. As suspected, the clutch plates were stuck together. The clutch plates were freed off, refitted & clean oil added.
On Thursday, the simply stunning example of American customisation, the ‘Springbok’ joined us for some wiring upgrades.
We were so mindful of the completely unique, award winning customisation & paintwork; that Daniel worked on her on the carpet, settled in our customer area.
On Friday, Daniel returned to the Yamaha XJR1300 motogadget install.
With the motogadget m.unit blue having been installed, the wiring diagram drawn, the switch gear, charging system & lights having been traced through the frame; the XJR 1300 now will have the loom inputs added.
