[NL] Helmveiligheid

Het nieuwe seizoen is begonnen en voor sommigen is het ook tijd om een nieuwe helm te kopen. Let er dan wel een beetje op dat de helm stevig genoeg is. Natuurlijk kan je 800 euro uitgeven aan een helm, maar daar moet je ook maar net de centen voor hebben. Eerlijk gezegd heb ik dat ook niet en doe het dus met een helm van 200 euro.

Gelukkig zitten we (nog) in de EU en wordt er stevig gecontroleerd op productveiligheid. Voor de volgende helmen is een waarschuwing uitgebracht en het is wellicht handig om daar goed rekening mee te houden:

Fuel level adjustment

On all models except the C.100 and C.102 check the petrol level by removing the float chamber, inverting the carburettor and tilling it at 50/70 degrees. The distance between the body base and the outer periphery of the float should then be 19-5 mm. plus or minus 0-5 mm (C.110/C.114): between the top of the float and the end of the main jet 7/8 mm (C.92/CB.92); 22-5 mm between the body and outer periphery (PW 26 carburettor) or 26-5 mm (PW 22 carburettor) on the bigger models in the range.
