well i took the bandit for a long spin round to dublin and back to limerick yesterday down the motorway, on the way up all as grand, bike running well as ever, upon filling up and heading home i stopped again to fill up in birdhill and as i pulled off the motorway the bike began to splutter and misfire at low revs and die, and when i say die i mean while still moving, not the usual clutch in and die. now i keep the bike in very good order mechanically, carbs are spotless inside and out!

now when i got off the motorway in limerick i slowed again and same happened, at low speeds it coughed and spluttered and misfired, but above 50km it runs perfectly not an issue. it idles smoothly and only coughs during pulling off/moving from low speed at junctions. i tried running it in a...

Sep 01, 2015 - 10:08 PM - by Yuppie
Take it very handy on the road between the kilternan hotel and the texaco station. They're doing that shite resurfacing where they pour on tar then dump heaps of chippings on top and let the cars clear it off. it's not very well signposted for the severity of the surface and how quickly it comes up. I.e. 80kms down to 30 very suddenly.,14z

» Excess insurance for a rental bikes
Sep 01, 2015 - 12:06 PM - by KTKenny
Going on a trip to the Alps next week with the father.

Renting a couple of GS bikes.

Bikes comes with basic insurance only.

Is there any companies that will insure the hefty 3000 excess incase the worst happens?

Easy to get for the car, but not for the bike as far as I can see.

Michael Dunlop broke his own race record from 2013 by over a minute as he won the delayed Formula 1 Classic TT.

Riding a Team Classic Suzuki, Dunlop posted a fastest lap of 125.050mph on his final circuit, to come home ahead of Bruce Anstey and Ryan Farquhar.

Dunlop and Anstey had been battling for the lead throughout but the Kiwi's challenge for the win ended when he was... [Read More]

Aug 31, 2015 - 8:18 PM - by R.M
Would it be o.k to store a set of tyre for 12 months without affecting them negatively.
Thinking of buying a set of Maxxis from Cotters as they seem to be getting good reviews & the 190/55 is only €60. (front & rear €145)

Currently running Bridgestones & rear will need replacing in about 1k smiles.
I will stick on another rear Bridgestone & when that goes the pair will need replacing.

What ye think?

» The Fear
Aug 31, 2015 - 12:19 PM - by Southern Rider
Has this happened anybody, it surely must have. I like to think I am personally safe when on the bike, so moments of madness when I think it's ok. Was always a bit of a risk taker, plenty broken bones and scars to prove my follies.

However every new biking year, I get just a little bit more uncomfortable with the risk of biking, it normally wears off as we get into the swing of the season.

Just this year, since the birth of mini-me, It's been in my mind. My father came off on the way home from Skerries(lives on a real country road, tipped wet grass in the middle) and recently some of ye will know the lad killed outside Mitchelstown by the Corbett Court. I didn't know him, but I pass the spot everyday.

Wired up aux/spot lights using a switch and relay loom. Wired straight to battery and relay trigger is wired to headlights.

Works as should but looking at bike this morning and they had come on by themselves. Switch was in on position.

Went out turned key on and turned switch off. They go off. Looking out window and they come on again by themselves with no ignition and switch in off position.

The trigger switch feed is powered when the key is turned on and off when key is off with a delay of 30 seconds.

Aug 30, 2015 - 7:46 PM - by silva123
So the speedo cable on my baby vara went today, everything else works, rev counter etc. I read somewhere that to replace the speedo cable you must remove the fairings and the petrol tank as it goes into one main connection under the tank.

Would it be a big problem to just leave it? I really dont have the time, nor the skill to spend 2 hours fixing something so simple. And I recon a mechanic would be too expensive since its such a fussy job

» Transalp losing power
Aug 30, 2015 - 3:22 PM - by stevo52
Just about to set off from the Gambia tomorrow on the second leg of my Africa tour but started having problems yesterday.

Six or seven times in the space of 20 kms, the bike started losing power to the point where I could only drive at about 20 kms per hour.

Sometimes it kicked back into action after 5 - 15 seconds while driving and sometimes I pulled over, left it in neutral and it came back to life after 5 - 30 seconds. It only cut out once entirely, and again, started after leaving it for a minute.

There's a Nigerian mechanic here familiar with big bikes but it's possible he's not entirely trustworthy (Nigerians are famous for being scam artists all through west Africa, and there has been a domino effect of of problems since he fixed a... [Read More]
