Good upgrades - you'll be needing a bias valve for the rears unless you fit large fronts as well.

It will be a while before the brakes go on
the raddo had been sitting since late 09
the seats just need a good clean and they will be straight in as my drivers seat is fu...d
also finally got my stainless exhaust parts today so i can shut her up
she sounds like a beetle at the moment and im surprised i havent been pulled but she sounds sweeeeeeeeet on full chat
and goes like a rocket

Long live the Rocco

finally got the carb ballanced after the run to norwich
but exhaust was rather loud so went for a sound barrier from custom chrome to take alot of the noise out.
