    Sounds to me like you don't trust the collective brain that is TRC and would actually rather not fuck about and get a man in. Is it that bad?

    Well the Nexus is a bit of an odd one compared to most bikes and anything to do with scoots normally sinks under the weight of scorn poured upon it, so asking about a man who can, if I cant, is the next step!

    There is a local mobile guy in Essex called Marinus, company called M-Moto - used him myself several times and so have many others, always been a job well done and bargain prices too.

    If Google doesn't throw up his number, drop me a PM.....

    I've only used him for tricky mech problems - VFR VTec valves and throttle body syncs. A few other people have used him for electrical fault finding and major rebuilds.
    Worth calling him for a chat, friendly guy in a South African kind of way......

    Cheers I need to get my finger out and sort an ad on here.

    Maybe you could put up a link when I do?


    I should keep it but rarely use it,the money would buy me a very tidy used mountain bike which I would use.
