Re: my valver

Post by greendale65 » Wed May 23, 2018 10:15 am

Hello all, i've noticed my valver when parked up over night or longer
the n/r side rear is lower than the off side rear the spat is touching the tyre
the off side tyre does not touch the spat there is about 1/4 of an inch gap
i've had new spheres replaced that did want doing.
any ideas.
thanks all

NSR is lower, or closer to the tyre?
