Looking for opinions on Bridgestone BT016 Pro.

Road and track use. Not sure on profile, how quick do they turn in ?



( Supercorsa SPV2 are grand, but when caught in the wet, its a case of tip toeing around, so want something with a little more thread on the outside of the tyre )

» Temp plug for puncture done - when to get proper fix
Aug 04, 2015 - 12:29 PM - by ajhampto
hi Folks,

Came down to the work underground cagepark to find the viffer had a rear puncture. Got a dude to come out (Martin McDonald) and fix it (very fast and sound man). He fired a truck pipe cleaner type thing in and said that its grand for a while, but a permanent 'mushroom' plug is needed.

How soon should I get this done - this is my first bike puncture. Was going to pop into Mutts Nuts if he does that sort of work.

Cheers,

A

Are these generic enough? Or something that would be Yamaha specifc?

Also, has anyone done a conversion that keeps both headlights on for dim and for bright?

Iv an '00 zx6r, the clocks are not working right probably need to be calibrated, Rev's seem ok but speed is wrong, for example it reads 40kmh when your doing around 80kmh etc...

Any one know any one who could sort them, that would be great... dublin.

» Buying in UK (New Tax disc situation)
Aug 03, 2015 - 10:03 PM - by Doughville
Howyiz. With the new digital Tax Disc arrangements now in place across the sea,what is the current situation for anybody buying privately over there.

I have bought a couple of machines there,and simply rode em back on the UK plate without any probs,however the new arrangements mean you'll be riding an untaxed machine,and any lazy ANPR watcher might just take it into their head to pursue ye along the A55 Expressway.

Has anybody got recent experience of the situation ?

» Is Rea a sour little bollix ?
Aug 03, 2015 - 5:36 PM - by Admin
Wouldnt shake hands with Chaz Davis after he pulled a move down into the last corner runnng wide with too much speed, where Davis goes for the inside line and they make contact forcing rea back to a 2nd place finish, both well out of shape, both 50/50 as far as I could see and should have put it all behind them once they've crossed the line,

Easier said than done I suppose, but not very sporting.

Aug 03, 2015 - 6:51 AM - by JoLady
Any advice on buying first bike? Looking for a Hornet. They seem to be mad expensive these days, I'm watchin DoneDeal like a hawk. When is the best time of year to buy; are bikes bit cheaper in winter? I'm not looking to spend over 2k on first bike. Are the older bikes still reliable? There are a lot of late 1990's/ early 00's bikes out there.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
