Got my 9er booked in next week for its MOT. She's an '09' reg with relatively low mileage of 17,000. Last year I took her to a different garage where the mechanic really did go over the bike with a fine tooth comb. Nowt wrong with that me thinks as if there's something wrong I'd like to know about it. Anyway after a new tyre valve was fitted I got the pass certificate.
BUT he said that if I'd taken the bike in a month later 'when the new rules come in' he would have failed it on discoloured brake fluid and the drive chain 'because it looks a bit loose on the sprocket'.
IMHO the brake fluid looks perfectly normal to me and the chain seems fine, I don't go around doing wheelies and these days prefer my license to cheap thrills.
So basically just asking if anyone is across these new rules and with a week to go what should I be checking?
