great tip Biffa!thank you!
have a go,Osney,it is not too bad as long as the springs are ok and don't need changing.if they do,get a garage to change the springs,just make sure they line them up properly,or the fork won't line up with the bush in the lower arm.the shock and spring assembly needs to come off anyway,i think!either way it gives better access to the other bits!
well done jimb0,i fully sympathise,i got my 156 cheap because it had,as the seller put it,'sulk mode' permanently and a list of error codes which wouldn't clear,everything from afm thru egr to glow plug relay!plus others
i finally worked out it was just a fuse . . . .then mashed my thumb on a fan in work,couldn't even hold a cuppa,let alone a spanner!
so had to wait til i could repair the 'bones and springs etc . . .and get her on the road.
you'll love it when you finally get to drive it,great handling,good grip and you'll have a grin that'll make people wonder what you been up to!
or maybe that's just me . . . . .
