SPY did it again!
« on: July 10, 2017, 08:50:02 AM »
Ok, as I posted previously, my Yamaha Nitro died on me!

I tried to figure out what was wrong, and unfortunately, no (or very little) compression.

Anyways, after a week, I had to get my transport up and running, as I got flu from using the bicycle, and we were burning through fuel with the car!

So, Saturday morning, 8 July, I started taking the engine out (no bakkie or towbar to get a trailer!), and managed to drop the engine off at Spy probably at about midday...

He had a quick squiz, and told me not to stress, he'll be able to sort it out for me!

He kept me up to date the whole time, and let me know Sunday at about 11:30 that he should be finished in the next 30 minutes!

Thanks Spy, for going that extra mile!

Home is where your bike sits still long enough to leave a few drops of oil on the ground.

The chances of Spy reading your post within the next 30 days are remote.
Rather email him  :help:
