Re: "Normal" tyres ? No slicks etc.

Thank you. So after 9 days for my understanding there us only one with own experience. I already had AD08R, A048, ZZS and A052. While the A052 is my choice for the warm time of the year, none of these tyres gave me confidence in cold conditions (no rain) and that was the reason for my question. I th...

"Normal" tyres ? No slicks etc.

Just curious, whether anybody has ever tried „normal“ tyres on the Atom, so no semi slicks or similar like A052, ZZR, ZZS, AD08, RSR, T1R, AR1 etc... Just "normal"/"simple" ones, perhaps even all-season or winter tyres. If so what was the experience compared to the usual ones lis...

Re: 2004 A2, is a key with a blade normal?

Of you research "S1203" this is a quite unspectacular and very cheap key and lock ;-)

Re: Help required.

I could not answer that from knowledge, but the Civic Turbo K20 engine (Atom 4) has about twice the tourque of the Civic NA K20 engine (Atom 2, 3, 3.5) so I would be surprised if it was not...

Re: Does Frame Get Hot in Sun?

My frame is coated dark grey and my bolted rollbar is black. None of them is getting hot in the sun.

My seats (bench) are covered with imitation leather and like the original unvovered ones they get too hot to jump in within less than 5 minutes.

Re: Does Frame Get Hot in Sun?

I use a fitted sheet to cover both seats.
Cheap, covered in seconds, easy to store and clean and available in any colour :)

Re: Greetings; and Few Questions

My challenge would be sitting on the seat after stepping on it with street shoes, besides, of course, dirtying the seat itself. Are you sliding with a mat? What I did before was putting a similar mat on the seat just before entering, stepping on it with both feet, then leaning on arms on chassis an...

Re: Greetings; and Few Questions

To avoid damaging the seat I am using a piece of insulation mat. You can just replace it when it becomes dirty or ugly.
Just an idea and there are certainly more beautiful ways to do it 😉

Re: Quick one - which oil

Thank you John.
Nonconforming information on their homepage IMO. Any of the three different Magntec 10W40 shows "part synthetic" in the "type" description.

Re: Quick one - which oil

... and according to the link it is part synthetic only.

Interesting, Castrol do not mention this on their German homepage version.

Re: Quick one - which oil

John,

are you sure, that the recommended Castrol Magnatec 10W 40 (A3/B4 I guess?) in fact is fully synthetic and do you perhaps have a link for that?

Thanks and regards

Don't understand this joke.
"I only work with 4s"

"4s" ist hier der Plural von (Atom) 4, also mehrere Atom 4.

Which makes the one on Autotrader a bargain. Literally has all the options including carbon tillets.
Alcons rear are missing ?
Sorry, I meant the Atom link in Johns first post.
It does not have Alcons on the rears.
Also a bit unexpected for an "R"
