    Emergency stop fully loaded to avoid squashing a cat and it popped a hole through a bit of rust I couldn't see on the pipe to the rear brakes.
    Tank out job so not going to be done in 5 minutes.

    I do, and a transmission jack that makes lowering the tank fairly easy. Just need to empty the tank a bit.

    Easiest way to replace this Keith is to get old pipe out and make a new one to match it. Then cut the new pipe halfway along the back and fit a joint. Feed in from either end and join up. Fit back in clips. Make sure you get the pipe in it's correct position in relation to the N/S EAS pipe.

    Ninety odd percent of the worlds transport are oil burners. If the greenies have their way do you look forwards to giant transport ships going back to sail. The vast majority of air pollution is caused by aircraft dumping vast quantities of Paraffin into the atmosphere. Next time you go to Spain on holiday try swimming the channel then walking to Benidorm from Calais. :D:D:p

    I recently did both rear rear brake pipes. Didn't need to remove tank. With the arch liners removed, there's just enough room to feed them across above the cross-member. It was a bit fiddly, but managed to re-use most of the plastic clips, and added ty-wraps where necessary. Used single run s for L & R with new fittings at both ends.

    or is the oil burner that different ?

    Going to drop the tank, then I can treat the underside above the tank and replace both pipes in single lengths. Just got to fine some suitable size CUNIC and a flaring tool.
    Aircraft are also dumping some pretty toxic additives used to protect the turbine blades all over Europe. there are around 8000 planes in the sky over Europe/UK every day.

    Surely I can't be a greenie if I run a petrol V8 :rolleyes:
    In the unlikely event of my holidaying in Spain (too many foreigners) could I load my RR onto the sailing ship as I never fly :p

    Hard to see what else they can use. They use an incredible amount of energy. How do you get that energy density with a green fuel? I guess liquid hydrogen might work but even then I suspect the public would be cautious after seeing the Hindenburg airship go up and the Challenger space shuttle explode.

    They can't but it is totally ignored by most who bang on about cars and trucks. Air pollution in the UK cannot possibly be as bad as it was in the 50's and 60's.

    Most of the rhetoric is politicians trying to improve their standing,or who have vested interests in " green" companies and groups who use the enviroment as a way to make money or earn a living

    Some of the ideas for large modern sailing ships are pretty impressive. Huge triangular sails that auto reef around the masts in high winds, everything controlled by electronics from the bridge. A tiny crew for a huge ship powered without any fuel at the point of use. You would find it fascinating.

    Agree about the planes, though. A lot of pollution, produced in the worst place, and still no tax on aviation fuel. Strange inconsistency with the policies about road vehicles.

    Ah, you remember the SMOG, oldies dropping like flies:eek: Go back a bit further to the horse transport era and London roads were covered in horse droppings and urine, not to mention human effluent discharged into gutters.
