RevolutionDo you have a business in Sheffield? If so let us know and I can come along when the next MOT is due, or needing servicing etc.

Also any machine after september 2001 must have a legal sized number plate, displaying the outlet and postcode of the plate manufacturer, also bsau stamp
Just got my DRZ400 MOT'd this morning. This number plate requirement has now been abandoned - just needs to be legal size.
Anyone konw what is meant by making the switch inoperable!
Quote - Indicators must work if they are fitted, if they are not fitted but have the switchgear to operate them then make that switch inoperable for the tester
No indicators on EXC, however switches and wiring still on bike

This is a better overview of the MOT requirements.
bugger - didn't think I was going to need a high beam, oh well back to the drawing board to find a dip and high beam switchgear. Bought one without
problem is the ones I've found with the high beam switch also has the indicator switch which I don't want, anyone know of a supplier that does just the dip and high beam?
Just a quickie, Oooh missus!
New to off-roading, bought old DR350, bought some UFO brush guards to fit, and the levers fitted to the bike are just too long, and the "ball ends" are tight up against the inside, and it interferes with lever movement.
I phoned up a bike shop and said "have you got any short levers because.......etc etc" and the guy says "I can get some in for next week, but you can just cut the ball ends off to stop them rubbing up against the inside of the guards".
He assures me that this isn't an MOT failure, just cut off the ends and file them off to smooth.
I always thought that the ball ends were to stop sharp edges stabbing people in case of collision as much as to stop your hand slipping off.
Can I cut my balls off? So to speak.
Cheers folks, grateful for any advice.
Having read the messages on MOTs I think I have a pretty clear idea now on what's needed for daytime MOTs and the fact that if the bike meets certain criteria, i.e. seat height and ground clearance, then there is no MSVA test either as the bike is clearly a trials or enduro machine. My question is, are these measurments taken with the bike free standing or with rider sitting ? Basic question I know, but when you are as heavy as I am it makes a BIG difference !
Hi ive just been issued a prohibition notice for not having a brake light on my CR250. I have got a Daytime MOT and it passed with no problems. I'm going to appeal but its a real pain in the ass. The Police man was convinced I was in the wrong. The Revolution post by MR.TALL clearly explains that in a daytime MOT all you are required to have is a horn.
Please help. Thanks
