Today or this weekend I have managed to change the rear wheel bearings for a new set of SKF ones and a spacer not forgetting a set of SKF bearings for the belt pulley and it fitted to the new Free Spirit tensioner all areas are now cleaned and lubed ready for the new belt and reassembly.
It was not that there was any fault in the bearings I was just wanting things in good order from my ownership and it was a good way to learn about the bike.

Some palmer product parts have also arrived the fairing brackets and light bar and I will set about getting them fitted, I must say the more I ride it and fettle with it, the more it is growing on me
I have had a few comments locally like "WTF" is that and hope you have plenty of Loctite F*ck you says I
