    Bringing home the T5 :)

    Brought home the T5 today, getting it up the bank was no problem as such. Although getting it in the shed was :O should I turn the engine on and ride it in? I had to sort of life the front up to get it in, will that do damage to the fork/headset by lifting up from bars?

    Speaking from experience I'd be careful with the mk1 bars. It won't take much to snap the pegs on the locating washer (very shit design flaw imo) - too much man-handling won't do much good in the long term.

    I normally pick up the front of my scooter by lifting it from the bottom of the forks.

    Its not really a good idea as the holes that the bars sit in eventually oval.

    Headsets do wear out and its a good idea to get then bronz bushed. These make them a lot tougher. Also self lubricating.... even though this is veering from the original point.

    thanks guys, don't need to lift it like that any more. Only did it once Razz btw my T5 headset it moving from side to side a little bit and stopping on the lock nut thingy. I t is still tight enough to ride but should I get some threadlock and tighten it?
