Re: Silkolene oil delivery (possibly)

Hi David

Yeah, thanks for arranging the oil delivery, your plan worked well.

It's also worth pointing out that the oil you are selling is in the 5 litre bottles, not the 4 litre bottle currently on sale.... so even better value Very Happy

I have the same problem with my Hinckley Trident, if I put it away with wet disks they tend to have locked up by the next time I get the bike out the garage...

I find a good well placed whack with a rubber mallet on the caliper frees them up no problem Very Happy

Not cheap, but less than half the price of having to replace them and the finish is good up to 1000 degrees C, so should work on the Rotary...The top photo shows the state...
