I was an MOT tester in the 80's, unless there have been majoer changes things have got really slack since I was testing.
Over the last few years several people in Britain have posted pictures of bikes that no way should pass MOT for very obvious reasons
I did download MOT Testers Manual about 9~10 yrs ago and nothing much seemed to have changed, just clarified with pictures and diagrams to make life easier.
It was a free download and probably worth getting a copy, helps when your legal and get pulled over (14 times in six days is my 'record')

A CB360 Build - Lil' Sebastian Rides Again
« Reply #166 on: Oct 17, 2016, 10:53:50 »
I think a lot of it has to do with being friendly with the MOT man. Couple of people I know are friends with theirs and if they need one they usually just give them a call and they issue a certificate over the phone. Obviously not everyone is doing that but I don't think it's uncommon.

Anyway, she passed her MOT today. I hadn't got around to installing the rear plastic mudguard and WOW after pissing it down last night boy did I need it. Should have whacked some cardboard in there.

After I got her home I installed a couple of those cheap fuel filters. Will be interesting to see if they limit fuel supply at all, if so it'll be on to the more expensive ones. K&N flat disc looking ones look good.

Congrats on getting her roadworthy. Why the fuel filters? Is your tank dirty/rusty inside? I never run them but i almost always clean the tanks (on the bikes I'm going to keep anyways)

You have filters fitted backwards. The flow should be marked on them but if not, flow should be to outside of filter medium. As it is, you can't see when they get clogged as any crap will be on the inside.
 Take line off right carb and fit it the other way around so filter is underneath carb. It will remove the kink as it exits tap
Oh, and turn petrol tap to OFF (STOP) when it's parked. It's a good idea to turn it off half a mile or so when your done for the day.

I had cleaned the tank with phosphoric acid but I checked it again last week and it's started to rust up a bit. So until I get it off and give it another clean I'll run the filters just in case.

Your friend is right on that front PJ. It's been lovely. Getting colder but still very much riding weather.

Looks like you have some real nice side  roads. Any major issues with tractors filling them up without warning?

Ha ha yes! But not so much now that harvest and spreading is over.

You're right though there are some great roads around here (in Hampshire more so than Devon). We're not too far from Salisbury Plain. I used to ride my pushbike there as a kid and I've always wanted to take a motorbike there so will have to make a day of that (and get some suitable tyres).

Also going to get up to Wales to the Black Mountains at some point (probably Spring). You familiar?

I rode around a bunch of that when I had CD175 (and 'L' plates  ;D ) many, many years ago. Had a friend living within sight of (forgot the damn name of the tower?  ::) ) Blew big ends out of 175 chasing a GT500 near Stonehenge, ended up being towed 136 miles home
Muckspreading at least gives you an idication the roads can be a 'bit slippery'  ;)
Haven't been in the black mountains for at least 17 yrs, don't think a lot changes, (except the extra police as it's pretty well known for being a 'sunday racetrack')

It looks beautiful there. Haven't been to the Brecons or that kind of area since I was a kid. Will probably aim for the reservoir.

Bunch of bike magazines have used that dam from various angles when they road test (I first saw it in a 1950's Motorcyclist magazine my father had ?? yrs ago) Last time I saw it was Motorcycle News about 20(?) yrs ago when I stopped subscribing
