Hey lads what's the deal with tinted visors over here law wise?
I know they're not legal over next door in Brit-land.
I presume over here it's just a case of 'Ah sure you'll be grand!'?

» Lost tax disc on the way to test centre..
Oct 24, 2014 - 8:11 AM - by ram666

Just wasn't my day yesterday..:
I lost my tax disc on the way to do my test..
Chainguard metal piece broke..
Lost my home keys..
Lost givi box screw..

Yes, all in one day.. Even half of a day I could say.. I am glad I made it home in one piece after all this.
In any case. My question, I will be going into motortax office to get a new disc. What do I need? Do I need to go into garda first or right into motortax office?
Also, need to weld this chainguard holder metal thing back to the arm so anyone could know where I could do that quick and handy in dubland area?

Thanks all.

Oct 23, 2014 - 8:31 PM - by allsorts&oddjobs
Hi lads, went for a bit of a spin today and when i was getting petrol i noticed that i dont ever tighten the strap on my gloves, just pull them on and off, ive read in loads of magazines about how we're supposed to tighten the glove to prevent it coming off in an accident, i just wonder how many actually do it or do most of us not bother, my gloves are tightish to pull on and off anyway so i wonder is that enough ?

» New Break disks advice on 03 zxr 636
Oct 23, 2014 - 8:11 PM - by breathnach
Hi All
Back on a bike after a long break thanks to the generosity of the brother giving me his 03 Kawasaki zxr 636. (a model i think). Bike will be stored for the winter but i need to get a few things done to it before the summer when cash allows (valve clearance, repair small fairing crack and a good clean and polish). It is due new break disks (Jan according to the brother) on the front and when i price them on Buster they are about £153 pounds each. While i wait on Lee Honda to get to me on a price is there any point trying to source these part second hand ?.
Many thanks

» McConnell and Irwin eye NW200 debuts
Oct 23, 2014 - 6:50 PM - by Admin
Australian star Billy McConnell hopes to make his debut at the North-West 200 road races next May.

The recently-crowned British Supersport champion was at last year's North-West as a mechanic to Gary Johnson and Michael Rutter.

McConnell has spoken with race director Mervyn Whyte who recently visited Silverstone to sign up new riders.

Glenn Irwin from Carrickfergus, fourth behind McConnell in the Supersport series, will be competing at the NW200.

He made his road racing debut at the 2014 Ulster Grand Prix - and now wants to follow in his famous dad Alan Irwin's footsteps and compete on the north coast.

Aussie McConnell, 27, said: "I was at the North-West this year and it is a well-run meeting.

» Suzuki GSX-R750 and 1000 recalled for defective chain adjuster
Oct 22, 2014 - 12:55 PM - by RosieJoe
Just in case you missed this:
SUZUKI is recalling certain model year GSX-R750s and GSX-R1000s over a defective chain adjuster which could cause the chain to fall off.

Recalled bikes include certain 2011-2014 GSX-R750s and 2009-2014 GSX-R1000 motorcycles, affecting 23,000 bikes in the US and 3,752 in the UK.

The Japanese firm’s summary of the recall says: ‘If a gear is missed while upshifting, the strain applied to the drive chain after the next shift may cause the rear axle to move, damaging the left-side drive chain adjuster.

‘If the drive chain adjuster gets damaged, the drive chain may come off causing

» Bike leathers buy before winter or hold on??
Oct 21, 2014 - 10:33 PM - by Kregiel
Hi Guys,

I've been thinking of getting a set of leathers a jacket and pants that could be zipped together for weekend blast and maybe daily commuting. I have gear I use daily so this would be in addition.

I made my mind on dainese set.

I am not in a rush or anything and my question is is it better to get something now or in 1-2 months time bearing in mind there would not be used that much or wait till new season? Dainese haev fixed prices so prices would probably ne similar etc??

Any thoughts?
