G,day Folks.
I'm new to the forum tho I have had my Bonnie for going on 50,000K.Love that thing!
Just fitted Ikon suspension both ends,rides and handles like never before.It must have been too much of a shock for the old girl as she has decided to have a rest and despark the coil.
Regards to all.Macca.

Welcome along Macca - there are plenty of good folk on here so jump in when you feel like it. Good to have another Queenslander on the board as well! Is your 90S a goer?

Cheers,

Russ

Macca, welcome. You have a great group of mates from down under on these boards. Check the posts on the Sprint and S3 groups for some more riders from your area.

Good luck on getting Bonnie sorted in short order.

Cheers,
BobW :chug:

Macca,

Glad to have ya.

I meet a lot of "mates" at a beach bar in the Philippines. We have a great time even though their accent makes me miss some of the words at times. Good people.

Thanks to all for the warm welcome.
Now one week and no coil as yet.
Yeah Russ,The R90s is a restoration in progress,all moving parts checked/replaced where necessary.Full paint job,looks dead set original.If I stop playing with the Bonnie I could eventually finish it.The BM was purchased in England (by a mate)for 2180.79PS ,with Krauser panniers and black crash bars.Gus Kuhn Motors could have sold him a new T140 Bonnie for 918PS or a Norton Mk111 Interstate at 1.021PS.
I wonder why he picked the BM.
Regards to all. Macca

I don't think so. I didn't know there was a school there. I will go and have a look later.

G'day Doc.
I ended up (much to my disgust)with a Triumph coil.
I bought a after market coil that didn't fix the problem so I gave up in disgust and trailered the bike to the Dealer.
The two coils, old and new,were both stuffed.Third time lucky and I"m back on the road again.$445.54Aus. poorer but lots wiser.
Macca.
