IVA Pass :)

So after a few minor tuning issues I finally blagged my way through the emissions and got a pass at Nottingham... I drove the 25 miles there passing 2 police cars on the way into nottingham, on the way back I had a cop car come back round the roundabout and follow me for a few miles until I pulled in for petrol. I got it all on the go pro . other than that everything seemed ok. Thereís lots of noises Iím not used to hearing and my tracking and ride hieght needs a little fine tuning but it all went fairy smoothly.

I managed to cook my finger holding the revs steady as my TPS is a little sensitive and I had to tweak the ignition advance slightly but I got there just. I think thereís something in the map ref temprature as i had to switch the cooling fan off to keep the temps in the high 90ís to get it reading right. Anything below 90 and the co2 shot up. Thats something for the next RR with my new exhaust in a few weeks.

Just got my cover note to print off and a cheque to write and the paperwork will be off with the postman in the morning.

You are allowed to drive to IVA, and back if it passes, if it fails the inspector might not let you drive off if deemed un safe.
I had my insurance on the chassis number...

That's great news, you can crack on with helping all those unnecessary bits of trim fall off now! Any pictures from the day?

Itís a day late (thanks wife) but the reg docs have gone off to kits and rebuilds this morning, hopefully I should here something next week, but Iím not holding my breath.

My speedo packed up working on the way to the IVA so I need to get that looked at, luckily heíd allready passed that so it wasnít looked at.
I have a few pictures but not as many as i wanted. It got a little busy and hot tweaking the map with one hand whilst holding the throttle steady with the other. Iíll get some up asap and maybe a few screen grabs from the go pro.
