Sad picture. How did the m go, roof up or down. Been toying with supplying more air to the simota, had a good pm with Mike fishwick and i am removing the headlight to widen the aperture to the simota to give it more air.. Well i am on holiday s;)

Hi mark. When we are on our way to Silverstone and i give you a wave when i pass you, it will have answered your question. ;)


According to stastics, the simota, to work at its best needs a far more supply of air than the headlight and foglight aperture can give, so it has been said to widen the aperture behind the headlight giving it more air. :-?

Can you take some piccies (with your smart new camera) and do a write Paul? I was looking at the front of mine wondering how to get more air towards the Simota. I've had a couple of thoughts and was going to run it past people on here first...

Had a ride out to the coast today in the Z, it's still there although some uncaring barstewd has removed the lower jaw and all it's teeth !!! Oh, if you go, make sure you approach from upwind. It's started to go off a bit.

Yes on the news they reported it was to be left for the tide to take it away but from the size of its Hampton I think it's well anchored down.. :-o
