    The dogs' Hornet mods

    Thread Starter: Kendog

    Kiaora, Tena Kotoa Katoa, I purchased this 1992 old beast on Fri. It started to jerk out a bit when I throttled in to climb up the hill taking her back home. On Sat I took her for a WOF check and Reg. On the way to those places she started to cut out when climbing up the hill whereby I have to...
