    Where in the Kubis were wet?

    When mine were first fitted, one of the O-rings wasn't properly seated. Dismantled the suit-side cuff, wiped on some silicone grease, reassembled and its been fine ever since.

    I've got through several gloves which often go near the rings when kitting up and they get caught and stretched.

    I bought a shiny new Kubi system and the rings wouldn't fit inside the sleeve. It seems the Otter cut was so good there wasn't enough surplus material. :( Wish I'd asked Otter to fit them when it went home last month!

    Petty people that lock gates thereby blocking access to other people's property.

    That lower gate's like Fort Knox. It's a danger too as you can't get out though that entrance.

    I wonder if the land owner has the right to block the entrance to a mine s/he doesn't own?

    Maybe, maybe not. It'd be nice to pull it down but then there'd be a whole load of grief for the mine owner.

    Came to bed early tonight as I'm tired, pink points denied as she's already turned her electric blanket on via the wifi.

    Honestly, i'm not actually sure.... I suspect the O rings or cuff side, but i'm really not certain.

    i dismantled both the glove side and cuff side completely, inspected and re-assembled in the hope it'd be ok... alas not.... Suit has gone back to Otter for inspection (and leg tear repair) to hopefully resolve.

    Pressure test the gloves - the ring just about fits around my chin & gob, so blowing in and you can hear it leak.

    Just to confirm, they're the fitted Kubis (with the suit glued to the rings), not the aftermarket fitted ones?

    If the fitted ones, the only cuff-side seal is between the two cuff-side rings. If that's OK, the leak must be the gloves. As I said, I've had several very small pin-prick failures at the wrist part of the gloves.

    I suggest that you look at a government website - "Redundancy: your rights" before the meeting, which will help you ask the right questions.. Good luck

    Not quite as severe as a loss of job, but....FZ1 + bad fuel consumption + misfire = empty tank at less than 120 odd miles = 1 mile walk uphill along Edgware Rd to a petrol station. Grrrr! Sweating like a pig.

    Everyone to their own - target in my ST1300 on my 100 mile Monday and Friday ride to/from my clients was 50mpg combined with 50mph average. But then, I couldn't have pushed it 100 yard, much less a mile.:whistling: I still miss the joy of riding an A-road at pace.
