» CB250 - Front brakes rubbing
May 28, 2015 - 7:31 PM - by Carlsberg

I got a 16 year old CB250 the other week & the front wheel wasn't spinning properly.

I fitted new pads on it today & on the pads I was replacing 1 was twice as worn as the other. Now with new pads the wheel is sticking more than it was so obviously something isn't right.

When I was fitting the new pads I used a vice to push the 2 round pistons back in & noticed on both some rubber hanging out. So what do I need here, a new couple of seals or am I better off getting a new caliper?
I'm thinking a couple of seals won't fix my problem though with the wheel being very hard to spin It's actually hard to push the bike it's... [Read More]

Took my first bike trip away two weeks ago. Headed from Rosslare, through Fishguard, Folkestone, Calais, Dunkirk, Bruges, Paris, Le Mans, Mont Saint Michel, Utah Beach and home. Just over 2000km. Great craic although we did have a cage with us. I would skip England next time and head straight to France. Great trip all round. Put a video together I thought I'd share here. Looking forward to a trip next year!

May 28, 2015 - 10:35 AM - by Snurger
Howye Lads,

I am looking for a rear paddock stand that will fit a (96) 900RR Fireblade SC33 and a (96) CBR250RR NC23.

Not looking to spend mad money, I have seen a few universal ones on Amazon for around the €50 mark but if anyone knows of any good deals please let me know.

May 28, 2015 - 10:27 AM - by Kingisabella
Lookin for something for the short spins into town and around the place like the boots that look like shoes. Rosses have a dainese waterproof shoe/boot for 120 and another make for the life of me i cant remeber for 70 bucks. The advantage with the dianese obviously is its waterproof.

I know lees stock a few TCX and alpinestars versions for the 120-160 mark.

Anyone have any experience of using any of these and why one would be a better buy than the other? Any info greatly appreciated and Ive no experience with any of them! Sound

» Can someone restrict an SV650s
May 27, 2015 - 2:43 PM - by SamHutch101
Hi, I am looking at getting a new (well new to me) Suzuki SV650s. It does not come restricted however, which is what I need to get insured on an A2 learner permit.

Preferably I would like to get the cert but not actually restrict the bike, just to please the insurance company.

Could someone advise on this and how it can be done?

Also I heard of a guy that was able to turn the restrictor on/off on his bike (CBR 600) with the flick of a switch, just in case Gardai were to pull him over. Best case scenario I would love to get this done but I have no idea on the price. Safe to say after my last bike got stolen I'm on a pretty tight budget!

May 26, 2015 - 11:29 PM - by johnwalsh61
Just to let everyone know we have been assured from on high that the masters round at bishopscourt will be moved to the Saturday rather than the Sunday as it clashes with our road race in August

For all riders we have made a change in the running order that should give you all loads more track time.
We are going to have two timed practise runs for all classes on Saturday as pretty much everyone agrees one five lap spin is not enough and puts you under too much pressure
We will run the first non championship open race on sat evening and maybe a small support and classic time permitting.
The second open championship race will be first away Sunday morning.

The last race of the day will be the grand final, not just another open race and... [Read More]

after drilling the original exhaust in the fazer i was happy with the sound until somelad in a gixxer pulled up beside me in athenry and showed me what a proper exhaust sounds like,fuck this says i ,so i decided to cut the original exhaust in two and pull out the guts(not just as easy as that),i cut it in the centre of the exhaust hanger strap so i could put it back together without making it obvious i fucked with it.anyway cut it ,pulled out two plates and 4 pipes out of it then got a 50mm pipe with 40million holes in it from another exhaust and stuck it in,packed around it and walla,sounds fantastic,loud grumble at idle but not much louder higher up the revs,travelling at 60 in 6th gear at 5k revs and i cant hear the exhaust over the wind noise unless i rev it so it cant be stupid...

Hello All,

So the unthinkable happened and my bike suffered a low speed spill. Would like to get it checked out by a qualified mechanic and have the fairings replaced. It is a 2014 CBR500R (ABS) so pretty new. I am based in Galway and gutted. I am not going to use my insurance and I don't want my premium to rocket.

As always any help would be much appreciated.

» A couple of questions for VFR owners
May 26, 2015 - 7:32 PM - by sean61
I've clocked up a few thousand miles on the vtec vfr I bought at the end of last year. It's a fantastic bike and really is a jack of all trades. I have noticed one or two problems though, mainly to do with corrosion and seem to affect most of them.

The last time I did a service, I couldn't remove the two bolts from the front of the bellypan. The ones that hold the side fairings together if I recall correctly. I had to slide the fairings out underneath the bike in one piece which was a pain in the ass. Recently a mate bought a low mileage bike that has never seen rain and his has the same problem. The bolts turn but whatever is holding them at the back also spins and you can't remove them. Is there a trick to removing these or do I have to get the drill out? The bolts are... [Read More]

» Cancelled 125/250Production race in Mondello on 10th May
May 26, 2015 - 3:28 PM - by tpmlogan
I have contacted all the 125/250 Production riders who entered this race on 10th May. Some of you have spoken to me but others haven't as yet. We will try and run this race at the ISAM event on 13th/14th June. Only those riders who entered for the 10th May event will be able to take part in this added race.
You need to enter the main event and this will be an extra race over the weekend. The MRC(Short Circuit Committee)made a decision at the weekend that as from now until the end of the season all under 16s in this class will have a discounted entry fee. Any problems just give me a ring.
