Is it going flat within the week?

If so don't be a cheapskate and get a new battery!

thanks guys, TBH not sure which way to go, still in a quandary whether to keep or sell love it but hardly used it since Oct! got a crank pulley, fuel filter, air bleed valve to fit -- bet I tax and keep for a while. mind you last years mot cost 950 quid and hurt, so might be time to cut losses?

sounds like you have too many toys there Paul
we all have stuff that's 'just for lookin at' and that's what your landy will become whilst sat on your drive
before you know it you'll cover it with a tarp because 'it's been sorned for 6 months'
then next summer you'll not uncover it
then by next winter you'll store stuff on the roof of it like a couple of tyres and bits of wood
at this point it becomes a garden shelf that you dont even notice any more

your neighbors will notice it every time they drive past however, I can assure you of that
use it or get rid is my advice

this is, of course, sound advice coming from a man with a motorbike that gets less use than a breville toasted sandwich maker ...... or that magimix thing that's in the kitchen cupboard who's only function is to sit there lure you into moving it so that you'll cut yourself on it's blades. Or maybe even that lava lamp you've got in the cupboard under the stairs that only needs a new bulb and it'll work fine. or the collection of old bulbs and fuses you've taken out of old vehicles that when you try them the filaments have blown but instead of binning them , once you've checked to see they of no use you put them back in the box . Add that to the phone chargers you've kept from phones that were obsolete 10 years ago and the little plastic clips you've kept from 'universal' wiper blades you've bought in the past and kept in a drawer 'just in case'

to the original, I got the ctek mxs for about £100, its been useful for both vehicles during lockdown to just keep stuff ticking, and it's a maintainer as well - works with both agm and wet. Actually Kurt, I blew my breville up from a tad more than regular use last winter lmao. However, as to the disco, Im putting my money on the 3am boom and clatter as the rust creeps past the suspension mounts... before the tarp is even considered.

I may have suggested before, but have you considered a longranger conversion? (longranger.net)
