» Help needed - Bearing/bush press
Dec 19, 2014 - 5:30 PM - by Magown3
Hi All,
Im in the middle of replacing bearings on the motor. Thought I'd be able to botch it to get them back in but I'm having no luck.

The price of a press doesn't justify it's one use so I'm looking for someone to let me use theirs for 10 mins.

It's Christmas time, come on :-)

Dec 19, 2014 - 11:33 AM - by RobZZR
Morning all,

Bike: GSXR K6 1000

Horn stopped working, so I

a) removed horn and connected directly to battery and its worked.
b) Tested the switch to continuity tester and it worked

When I reconnected the horn to block it doesn't work.

What else can I check?

» Please turn on your headlights!
Dec 19, 2014 - 9:59 AM - by positron
With low sun blinding cagers who are already under pressure to sort out Christmas money/dinner/presents, please remember to turn on your headlights when you are out on the bike.

There was a Fazer behind me on M1 this morning with just 'stand by' lights on, and when I look back on the rear view mirror for him, against a backdrop of cage headlights, he might as well be wearing an invisibility cloak. Predictably enough, a number of cages pulled out in front of him right after I overtook them.

Obviously this biker forgot to turn on the lights this morning, which is clearly out of the ordinary, as all Fazer owners are always high IQ people with impeccable taste and style. ... [Read More]

Heading over M fiddy last week at a "brisk pace" last week I noticed the oul Pan a bit "Giddy" I put it down to the breeze at Balinteer exit cause its always a bit wild. A week on and I said I must check tire pressure. was way down on the back. I went mad with washing liquid and brush cant find the bastard, rims valve and side walls fine. Maybe chain leaning on valve while locked leaked a bit of air? has me stumped. Ill keep it watched or drop it to eminent bike gynaecologist Dr. Branno in G.P

» Michael Laverty to Tyco BMW for BSB '15
Dec 17, 2014 - 7:41 AM - by Admin
Michael Laverty is to ride for the Tyco BMW team in the 2015 British Superbike Championship, while Alastair Seeley will compete in the British Superstock series and the North West 200 in May.

Both Northern Ireland riders have ridden previously for the TAS team run by Hector Neill and his son Philip.

Seeley will have a full stable of machinery for the North West, with Guy Martin and William Dunlop also riding.

Martin and Dunlop have been retained by TAS for the entire road racing season.

Their schedule will again include the other international road races, the Isle of Man TT and Ulster Grand Prix, plus selected national races.

The Moneymore-based outfit recently ended their 14-year association with Suzuki to team up with the... [Read More]

Dec 17, 2014 - 12:25 AM - by colmh
G'day mates!! Long time no chat!

Been quiet on here for the last while. Sold the 650GS and the cage and hopped on a boat to Australia! Ive joined an Aussie biker forum, but it just isnt the same craic you get here! I never thought I would say it, but you would miss the rules sometimes. Theres people saying cage all over the shop and not a drop of punishment for it. It just isnt right!!

Anywho, I was just wondering are there any other lads or lassies on here that are based in the Sydney/NSW area? Looks like im picking up a CBR600RR this weekend so mad to get out for a few spins!! ... [Read More]

» Bike stolen / recovered
Dec 16, 2014 - 10:16 PM - by attila
Hi all,
My bike was stolen and (luckily) found by the Guarda before I knew it. They (the thieves) couldn't start it because of the immobilizer so just dumped her, not too far from my house. This happened in a busy well situated house estate between 5 and 10pm, after I got home from work on the bike, while we were in the house, and the bike was parked practically under the window (not chained - my fault). I only have third party insurance so everything is on me..
Anyway, just for heads up, keep an eye on the locks and keys, I didnt think this could happen to me, and feels awful, I use the bike everyday gave her everything she deserved and she have never let me down.
I will have to collect her tomorrow and not sure what to expect, could she be drivable or cables... [Read More]

Hey guys just wondering where the best place to get a cbf600s carbed speedo sensor.
I have seen 1 or 2 for the newer injected version wondering if they fit??

Would the speedo sensor off a hornet 600 fit as the engine block is the same and most parts off them would be similar.

Chopper your guidance would be appreciated

» Garage space for rent in cork
Dec 15, 2014 - 10:37 PM - by TCjnr
Any one looking to rent a garage?
I know of a large garage up for rent near cork city. I was meant to move into it with a mate but he pulled out last minute. I need at least one other person to move in with me to help cover the rent.
There's loads of space in there. It's not too expensive. My mate rents next door, it's safe and well out of the way. Perfect spot for a man cave.
If any one here is interested let me know.
