    Don't you just love it when Tim bullshits his way around engine terminology?

    Scott- Tut Tut!! Did all that work yesterday and you bottled it, terrible mate.

    Not that I can talk, been on holiday all week and not ridden the bike.

    Moggi,

    I am the owner of the aforementioned "Frankie"..........

    Frankie is a 2000 RSV Mille but was sold by a dealer an "R" variant, the only remotely "R" bits are the Ohlins suspension.

    After 1000 miles the sprag failed and was repaired with BMW, Yamaha, Ducati & Aprilia Parts.

    The bike ran for over 40 minutes on its paddock stands with no problems , then went for a run up to Lakeside to meet AMB67 , when things started to go wrong again and on reaching Lakeside the bike broke down again.

    This time the flywheel bolt had sheared off and the flywheel had spun o the crank destroying itself and damaging the crank.

    Fankie is short for Frankenstein on account of all the "differant" manufacturer parts involved in the repairs
