If you haven't already done so it might be worth changing your air filter and fuel filter as these can push up emissions if dirty/blocked. I'd also give it a good blast just before you take it in for it's retest.

get it up to temp and give it s**t to mot, I always go to an mot that needs dual carriageway to get there, not that my H Reg concerto needs to worry about emissions.

Give it a good blast as mentioned for the bearing from my own experience i'd reccommend just giving it to a garage but possibly sourcing the part yourself. It can be a bugger to change, but if you've got all the right equipment (like a mechanic) it can take a few mins and shouldnt cost more than £20-£30

As well as changing the filters,I would advise a good dose of millers or equivalent in the tank & give it a decent run.No need to thrash it,brisk driving should be enough,in a lower gear if necc to get the revs up to 3000+ for 1/2 mile or so once it's warm.Confusedalut:

thanks was going to ask about the stuff you put in tank
Millers is very good, I use it on every fill and every on new bottle I give it a double dose.
Works for me.

Soot just needs a good clear out, unless it has a running issue. Tank juice can help, if its been driven by a nun round town. Regular maintenance is key!
Bearing needs a decent hydraulic press & tooling to fit. If you want to do diy, take the hub off and to a 'competent' garage for them to fit 'carefully'.
I've seen some done badly and it kill's them quickly. Heard of 1 'man in overalls' say "the new wheel bearings are a little noisy, but should get better when they bed in" Confusedcratch: LOL
You don't get faulty bearings, only faulty Fitters! :censored:
