Motorcycle security, servicing & safety at mono motorcycles, Funtington, Chichester.
mono motorcycles & vehicle security took advantage of the brilliant weather last weekend & headed to Whiteways car park to do our first outdoor promotion of the year. Not only were we letting the general public know about our new workshop in Funtington, Chichester; but we were promoting DATATOOL motorcycle security products.
We are extending our special offer on all DATATOOL products supplied & fitted for one more week, to reflect the new software option which now accompanies the TrakKING & TrakKING Adventure. Watch our video on our Facebook page to find out more about the 999 crash detection app which DATATOOL have launched this week.
The bank holiday brought out thousands of bikers to the British roads. mono motorcycles & vehicle security joined the throng & headed to Hastings. This year celebrated the 40th Anniversary of this legendary 1066 event & it didn’t disappoint.
The ride down to Hastings started early, some, still bleary eyed from the night before, joined us at Portsdown Hill for breakfast to fuel up for the journey ahead.
The weather was warm, but once on the bikes, the cooler breeze made riding easier & enjoyable. Once we made it to Hastings, the roads were lined with motorcycles as far as the eye could see. Our group agreed that we’d made it, but felt compelled to head out of the town for a burger at the Custom Cafe, before making the trek back to Hampshire.
Tuesday was very much a back to the workshop day. Having a fully booked calendar means that we are focusing on multiple projects. The assessment process of course is only ever half the job, waiting on parts the other. This week we have completed the issues with the Africa Twin, having found that the carb rubbers were worn & therefore the air mix was incorrect. In addition we have completed works on the Norton Commando, which was in for an oil change & revitalisation prior to being sold. The Triumph Trophy 650 which has accompanied the Norton in to the workshop, has wiring issues which are being worked through. One interesting find was that there was no earth in the back light assembly!
The Buell assessment is in progress, however due to tooling issues, we have had to wait again on parts to remove the clutch casing to develop the assessment. The big step forward was that Daniel actually managed to get her running. After sitting silent for 5 years, it is always a great thing when a motorcycle breathes life once more. The knocking sound still eludes us currently, as we need to physically see the clutch assembly & crank before we make any assumptions. Her owner however feels positive that there is a spark, so watch this space.
Continuing an American theme, the custom Harley Davidson Bobber we have had in for an engine swap, has now been reconnected to her engine & is up & running.
