» Bike Photo of the Month Calendar 2017
Dec 05, 2016 - 3:30 PM - by eirehead
Hi guys. As 2016 fades out, making way for the bright lights of 2017, have you thought about how you're going to keep track of those important dates? You know, birthdays, anniversaries, hibernation schedule, the wife's menstrual cycle, Defender of the Fatherland Day. In the last couple of years, with your generosity, we've raised nearly a thousand Euro for DSI, and it'd be great if we could keep that going.

So, we'll be producing another calendar this year. Your support is greatly appreciated. I'll get them produced as soon as the result of the December competition is in and get them sent out asap after that. Again, where possible, I'll try to avoid postage costs by delivering myself or getting one of my elves (top men, one and all, you know who you are) to deliver them... [Read More]

So I just completed my first year racing and I must say I enjoyed every minute of it. I was chuffed with the results and ended up 2nd in the Southern Championship and 5th in the Masters. Delighted considering it was my first year.
I would definitely recommend it to anybody who is considering it to give it a go and don't look back, you will not be disappointed. The site here is full of great advice, help and knowledge so thanks to Admin and CO for keeping it running and everybody who contributes. If any newcomers for 2017 need any help feel free to PM me and I will help you as best I can just like members here helped me.

» Bloody Clutch
Dec 03, 2016 - 11:24 AM - by MrZero

I have a bit of an issue with my 899, I was on a short trip around the south coast, and my clutch cable snapped. Managed to get to a hotel, where I am now rather than at home, by running multiple red lights etc. Now I contacted all the garages I could think of, and it will be Friday my the time a get a new cable.

My question is, I can drive fine and shift up and down the gears without the clutch (as if I have an option now) but how the fcuk do I get going from neutral when stopped?

I had to resort to starting the bike in first to get going which very rough and felt bad for the bike. What is the best way to get the damn thing going from a stop. I have to ride the bike so van etc is not an option, I have too much work to do this... [Read More]

» Honda Bros 400 whining noise at speed.
Dec 03, 2016 - 1:01 AM - by Kingbot
Hi guys.

New to proper biking (rode Vespa's for years) and recently bought myself an 88 Honda Bros. I find at speed, well, over 40km anyway, there is a whining from the console/front area which stops when I slow down or stop at lights.

Anyone else ever come across an issue like this and if so, how did you solve it? Not too bad at giving things a go if it isn't too complicated.

Thanks a million.

Dec 01, 2016 - 2:18 PM - by mmcgtk
Is there anyone decent in Ireland that can port a 2 stroke head.(Not just grind out imperfections) but modify the design of the head.

Is a small 125cc head.

I'm pretty sure I might have to send it across the pond to the U.k but I thought I might try this forum first.

Luke at Unlimited Industries designed a hoody for me recently and I'm very happy with the result.
I'm waiting for a few samples to be sent down in the next weeks or so.
Im aiming to sell some as a bit of a fundraiser for next year but also for a bit of fun, would be cool to see a few around

I spoke to Admin and incorporated a logo.
Also any item of clothing sold I will make a donation to Dsi.

This is the proposed hoody, he will also be doing jackets but I don't have a picture as of yet.

» Camchain soft/hollow pin links - what tool(s) do you use ?
Nov 28, 2016 - 4:38 PM - by -alan-
Ok - I started the reassembly of the CB 450 engine. I have a new DID chain, which comes with the soft/hollow-pin link that needs to have the ends splayed to keep the side-plate in place.

Do I need to get a special tool to do it properly, or is there some other manual/pressing technique that will do the job without mangling the tips of the hollow pin ?

Having got this far, it's definitely something I don't want to do a half *rsed job on..

» Honda XR650L cutting out
Nov 28, 2016 - 4:33 PM - by renniks
A few weeks ago, I had the bike cut out on me just as I pulled in to the carpark in work in the morning. Wouldn't restart, so I pushed it up to where I park up, and went in to work. After work, fearing it wasn't going to start, but optimistic that it would, I went out & it started up as easy as any other normal day - sweet! Got home no bother, though only a couple of miles.
Couple of days later, after nipping into town for a few bits, couple more miles, it cut out as I was waiting at traffic lights - again, no restart. Luckily, just around the corner from home, so pushed it back. Next day, restarted no bother.
Bit of searching and I found this article:
