MOT passed, not even an advisory

Just had the annual test done and the preparation work paid off. Pass first time, and no advisories whatsoever. Very happy.

Preparation work included :

2 new brake pipes ( Left front and right rear ). They would probably have been OK if I hadn't picked the plastic off to reveal a small amount of corrosion.
Braided brake hoses all round to replace the 14 year old factory hoses.
Rear brake pads( would probably have been OK, but 1 looked like it was getting a bit thin ).
2 Springarms with powerflex
Stainless steel downpipe ( I got fed up getting the original welded up every other year ).

Now to concentrate on the more cosmetic stuff.

Well done to you! Mine! failed... Front wishbones for front required. One front tyre below limit, so replaced both front tyres with Primewell PZ900. These tyres seem to be performing well. Had some tram lining with the Eagle F1s these do not tram line and are much quieter. Bought them cause I wanted similar tread pattern as the Eagle F1s that weren't in stock. Any ways to make it short... MOT + Full Service + 2x front wishbones + 2+ front tyres set me back just over a grand
