Re: OXYGEN ELECTRIC BIKE

Well, it probably takes more than the half inch left in the bottom, which is why I was hoping someone could help me with the quantity. Can anyone help as to a general guide - ie how far up the inside of the forks should the oil come? I doubt the exact quantity is critical. The bottom unit is about 1...

Re: OXYGEN ELECTRIC BIKE

Dear Terry, Many thanks for your reply, but I'm afraid you will have to bear with non-techies like myself. I've never changed fork seals before, but do I gather from what you say that I won't be able to find any that fit anyway? Also, what sort of oil and what quantities? The bike is sitting head do...

Re: OXYGEN ELECTRIC BIKE

Hello Terry, Well, you know I've got one, as you very kindly came and fitted some batteries, which are lasting well. The bike's fine, except that I now have the front forks in bits as one side had seized over the winter. While I've taken bikes to bits, I've never seen inside a pair of forks before, ...

Re: Price of insurance

That's what I'd have hoped, but obviously I'm seen as a huge risk. I'm 50, with a full bike licence for 32 years, and a couple of years' no claims. If I claimed anything beyond the excess, I'd have pretty well pulverised the machine.

Re: Price of insurance

Adrian Flux have quoted about the same as Rampdale - TPFT at £118. Can't remember whether it's Fully Comp or TPFT at Rampdale.

Re: Price of insurance

By searching the Web I found Rampdale and was given a quote £30 cheaper. http://www.rampdale.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; They seem to specialise in non-mainstream vehicles from what I can see. I need to get the bike out of the garage again - I haven't ridden it for nearly two ...

Price of insurance

The insurance for my Oxygen Cargo is coming up for renewal, and there will be a price hike of about 40%, to nearly £150! The insurance is with Chaucer. Does anyone know of another insurer that will give cover for electric vehicles? Last year the price went down; now it's rocketing, despite my making...

Just a quick update. Now done over 850 km and it's going really well apart from battery life of course. Terry's very kindly offered to come round and check things out, as he's wondering whether there's a power leak somewhere. The batteries quickly lose charge. Discovered someone locally who's had ye...
