Hi all. Was at the track day in Mondello Sunday had a great day. Bike went very well in the morning sessions. In the evening I felt like I was down on power up in the high revs. When I came back in after first evening session some of my friends who were watching on the pit wall asked why I wasn't opening the throttle fully on the straight. But I was opening it fully! It seems to be driving fine up to about 8k revs and lacks nd the punch from there on. It will hit the limiter but takes ages and seems tired from 8k revs onwards. It has a full yoshimura system and power commander. Just wondering is a mapping issue maybe? Or if anyone has come across anything similar? Took the bike for a spin this eve and same story so drove my buddies road Gsxr 600 to compare and the road bike was far far... [Read More]
I'm getting a BMW K75 shipped over from Austria, it's my dads old bike and he does not use it anymore.
I'm a bit lost regarding the correct procedure, I know I need To pay VRT first to get the bike registered in Ireland and get the number plates. I guess I can't get my insurance changed to the new bike before that has happened, neither can I pay the Motor Tax.
So obviously my first way is to the NCTS center. But how will I get the bike there? I'm not allowed to ride without insurance and I can hardly hop on the bike without licence plates and ride around town to get to the test center.
The bike will be shipped here from Austria, maybe it will still have the Austrian plates on it when it... [Read More]

I was playing with suspension setup over weekend and when tried to adjust rebound I noticed bolt was seized. I gave it good bath in wd40, left for few hours to let it work its magic but when eventually tried to turn the bolt it snapped :/
Is it repairable or am I looking into buying a new shock?
Anyone tried the Michelin PR4's yet? I am a huge fan of the PR3's, and they look like a similar tread pattern, and supposed to last 20% longer.. think I will give them a try. Just wondering if anyone here has tried them yet..and if so.. opinions..

Former multiple Irish superbike champion hilton hinks will be making a return to competition at the Kiltorcan thundersprint
Apparently fed up at no longer being the most famous motorcycle racer from tramore, hinks has decided to come out of retirement for one last attempt at regaining his legendary status. Also competing will be Ireland's fastest farmer Richie Ryan, if he can get someone to milk the cows on Sunday morning Ritchie will be along on his triumph. A number if Ireland's top road racers will also be out, some of them don't know it yet but I'll be putting a gun to their heads and calling in favours next weekend at cookstown. Derek McGee told me he had a supermoto so he's going to get forced into it and Paul Gartland is definatly on my hit list, best man... [Read More]
