» MMA proposal re green and white flags for 2017
Aug 29, 2016 - 2:02 PM - by thebleedinsymbol
Here is a copy of a letter we have sent out to the short circuit clubs and rider reps at mondello . It is a proposal to get the green flag ratified for racing at short circuits in 2017 and a clarification of the white flag usage . We have had good support from some of the clubs and riders already and hopefully we can get this put through the system for next year .

Dear Sir / Madam ,

We are writing to ask for your support in ratifying the use of green flags during racing at short circuit races and clarification of the use of white flags for short circuit racing going forward from 2017.

Currently we are allowed to use green flags to identify the flag posts on the warm up lap only . We are looking for full use of the... [Read More]

» Tdr 125
Aug 29, 2016 - 2:01 PM - by Sdrobo
Hi guys my name is shaun.

I've just bought a tdr 125 on a 07 plate. But I think it's around 1999 model here is the vintage number XJYADE041000001233*

I'm really stuck I've not had a little stroker for years. And I don't remember them been like this lol. It will only go 50 mph and max rpm is 6 to 7k.

I can hear the power valve cycle when I switch on the ignition. And I've bought a full ginneli exhaust system but no difference.

Could someone please help me to tune this bike to release some of its power. At the moment it's like riding a 50cc lol. Please help really appreciate your help and advice.

Thank you

Aug 29, 2016 - 12:51 PM - by SLR650
Some little c#nts robbed my 125 on Saturday night, rallied it around a field then pissed off.

Anyway guards found what's left of it and took it to Gannons and now it needs to be picked up in the next 24 hours or I'm going to be charged storage.

Would any kind soul have a van and be willing to collect it and return it to Drumcondra?

I'll throw some cash your direction! Would be much appreciated

Its available via Amazon and can be read on a range of devices including Kindle, iPad, iPhone, Android, PC, laptop etc. Ive written a short Blog Post about it.

Main question- are all the bikes legit these days?
Was going to enter this class 2 years ago but was put off by the amount of illegal bikes I was being offered - bikes were basically old supersport bikes and so engines were fully tuned with aftermarket cams, cranks modified etc. and the racers offerin them didnt care that that made the bike illegal. Anyway want to enter a few rounds next year so is the class well monitored?
Already askin about a few r6s for sale and its the usual add where the details of the bikes extras are all there but mysteriously no info about the engine will be mentioned except you have to ring and ask about it. Alot of them have Kent cams in etc are these legal? I know Kent cams are reground oem cams that have a improved cam lobe for racing?

» Front fork pitting and epoxy resin
Aug 27, 2016 - 5:24 PM - by William 013
Hey guys just wondering if anyone has used the method of filling in pitting on there fork tubes using epoxy resin. I am restoring a 1984 gp 100 that is in a bad way and the fork tubes are severely pitted. I was going to use the epoxy resin method as they will be painted black anyhow. Im just curious to see if anyone has done this before. The only reason I am thinking of taking this route is it is next to impossible to locate a pair of forks for the bike.

Any advice or suggestions are more than welcome.

Aug 27, 2016 - 7:30 AM - by Admin
Harrison and Dunlop are flying in the 2016 Classic TT Junior and Senior classes

Spirits in the Black Eagle Racing MV team soared tonight after Dean Harrison blazed to a 109.363 mph lap on their 500cc triple, and Michael Dunlop packed in two 102mph laps to head 350cc qualifying well.

And team owner Mark Kay was quick to direct praise to his 23-year-old son Mitchell, who directed this year’s design improvements on the 350. “Mitch told me what he wanted me to do, and I machines it as he instructed,” Mark said. “He’s redesigned all the valve gear, pistons and electronics.”

Dunlop lapped at 102.567mph to head Friday’s 350cc qualifying. He is known for his robust riding style, and clearly the team was pleased that... [Read More]
