Try a Green Cotton filter, it will help the engine breathe better and give it a bit more rev.

I got mine delivered yesterday and fully intended to fit it yesterday but unfortunately wife stopped play.
I'm intending to sneak off tomorrow and get it done if work doesn't miss me for a half hour.


What you may wanna do is fit a green cotton performance induction filter.


Hah! ;)

Have something to contribute?

Strangely enough, yes.
Dunelm Mill got a good caning, she goes wild in there.
personally i think everything they sell there is tat, but no accounting for taste.
Annoying thing is that i always end up fitting the soddin' things as she "can't quite reach" - lazy so and so :(

If you do too much for them its all "i can manage, i'm not a weakling you know"
But if you don't help then the small weak voice comes out and when you ignore that then the voice gets much louder.
My missuses Belfast accent can get very strong and loud when ignored. :o

Never get on the wrong side of an Irish woman mate. Several years of marriage n you'll definitely know that by now ;)

But then I guess that goes for every woman.

If you can't see the wiring, simple way to check is take a bulb out your courtesy light n stick it in the sockets. Remember if it don't light up the first time, take it out n turn it round then put it back in cause theres a positive n negative side to it. If it lights up your laughing, just buy some decent LED bulbs n whack em in.

If it don't light up, like Clive said it's easy to install n he can advise well on it as he's done it himself. (just make sure you don't wire em in series ;))

Notice in my socket photos theres a random wire in the foot-well. If you already have front foot-well lighting, a pee easy, cheap, n well worth mod is installing rear foot-well lighting.

A guide to it can be found here written by Lenny

Clive has recently retrofitted his too so he'll be able to advise well on it.

Would you want to fit rear foot-well lighting as well?
