Bye Bye Jeff

News has reached us that Jeff Fordham, veteran volunteer at every single Bongo Bash, has died after a short illness. Our thoughts are with Paulette and family. He was the nicest man you could possibly meet and we are all very upset.

Re: Mechanics

Alan, there's a full list of Bongo friendly garages in the members area of the main website at https://igmaynard.co.uk/member-area/mem ... #databases

Re: Mushroom Roof

I was speaking to Phil at JAL about this and he says there are 3 options.

1) You could split the board in 2. This will make it easier to move & assemble.
2) Drill hole(s) in the board to act as hand-holds.
3) Upgrade to the new vented alloy boards (improved airflow)

Re: Alternator Rectifier

Re: Y piece breather

Re: Problem reading error code

There's a fact sheet about the Wastegate as well. It summarizes most of the stuff that I could find on this forum and elsewhere.
