1996 Honda CB750. Inner cable on my Speedo cable snapped about halfway down this morning. Do I need to replace both inner and outer cables? Are inner cables easily got, I'm thinking city spares if they are back order from Honda. I need the bike for test on Tuesday.

» Slow oil leak from inner clutch cover
Sep 25, 2016 - 12:08 PM - by mcljot
Hi folks,

Bike is 2001 KX250. I have a very slow oil leak from my inner clutch cover. There is a paper gasket as standard and I've tried a thin bead of liquid gasket on both sides of the gasket, and I've tried shovelling liquid gasket onto both sides and it still drips about one drop every 5 minutes.

Would two paper gaskets help? I've ordered some ThreeBond liquid gasket to try (have been using Dirko so far). I haven't had the clutch cover on a flat surface to check for warpage but is there any recommended method of fixing this?

Anybody heading for the Spirit of Dunboyne show today?

Always a good turnout of bikes and unmentionables, and the weather looks decent enough.

Will be there with the bairns myself.

Must arrange a way to get the VF over there, though the ZXR-R would be eligible now too!

Gets very good reviews and just bonds to the metal, so no clutch slip. Bit on the pricey side for half a pint of the stuff. Has any peeps tried this and found any real improvement overall, was gonna throw it in the FJ

Sep 23, 2016 - 10:29 PM - by SnozzleSnout

Just thought I would throw this up here incase anyone has, or knows anyone that might have had one of these bikes stolen.

Two little bastards rode one right out in front of me about an hour ago up by Neilstown in Clondalkin, Esker road. No helmets, tracksuit bottoms tucked into socks etc.

It looked like a red and black cbr125, missing the front fairing.
Hate seeing little scrotes like these wrecking someone's bike.

Sep 22, 2016 - 2:36 PM - by Anthony Byrne
Copied this from my blog

Recently (this week) I passed my test and thought Id write about a couple of areas of the test. It wasn't the first time I attempted the test as 3 months back I sat it and failed poorly. At the time my driving instructor couldn't believe how poorly I scored on the test. The tester on the first attempt was rude, arrogant and very aggressive in his manor and the day itself really knocked my confidence. As a learning and development specialist for a huge multi national company I deal with people sitting tests on a weekly basis and couldn't comprehend ever acting this way to a person.

I decided to also try a different driving instructor and came across Dave Stears. Dave was highly recommended and is based very close to where I live. I... [Read More]
