my vel is running 97w tyres. they ride really well and speed bumps are not a problem.

Have just cured the rear end knock today. With recent expense of turbo and gaskets i put a 1mm rubber sleeve inside both rear arb bushes and all is quiet.

Had some bad luck tho soon after, i think i have got a blocked top oil feed as on my way home the engine started to make a noise like a machine gun, and i had to get recovered home.

Could also be a blocked oil filter or sump strainer.
