hi lads,im looking for a couple of back orders of bike magazine.
the months i would like are oct/nov/dec and january.

I just got delivery of my Shark visor kit. All in I paid 22euro, That's for the kit and 9 euro delivery from a German website.
Firstly it sickened me to pay 22 for a few small little screws and bit of plastic, but I was happy to get them I rang a certain unnamed bikeshop looking for them because someone had said Cotters stocks the Shark bits.
Yer man looked to see had he got them and said "yep 38euro"
So I got them off ze Germans. I believe in supporting local business and nothing on the unnamed shop in question. But its a bit sick that a the money has to go out of the country,I would rather support my own but when faced with such a difference for a small item I think of supporting meself.
Has anyone paid the extra to stay local and support local... [Read More]
Japanese based Mugen, which has won the last three SES TT Zero Races, has confirmed a two strong rider line up for the 2017 Isle of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy.
M-TEC Company President, Mr Tomoyuki HASHIMOTO, confirmed that 23-time TT winner John McGuinness is back with TEAM MUGEN for 2017, and this year will be partnered by Guy Martin, who is also team-mate to McGuinness in the Honda Racing team at this yearís TT.
After missing out on a hat-trick of victories in 2016 with a freak incident that shut down his machine in the middle of the race through no fault of his own, McGuinness will undoubtedly return with even more determination to recapture the TT Zero crown in 2017.
After a one year sabbatical from the TT while he... [Read More]
Got 2 smallish punctures on my pilot road 4 with only 500 miles on it. Repaired them both (about 2 inches between them and in the sipes on the tyre centre strip.) Used 'Stop and Go' mushroom plug kit. I'm thinking now to replace the tyre for peace of mind, but I had bought the kit due to good reviews regarding longevity and safety. Any experience with these type of repairs lads? Cheers!
I'm doing the Daytona 200 on march 18 , I'd figure I show I few pics
of the build, I'm fully rebuilding my Ducati 749R since I can't run my 899 cause it's over cc.
I'll be flying the flag over here.
Hi guys, looking for a set of down pipes and collector box for a 1992 Pan st1100
was onto David Silvers and far to expensive, was hoping for second hand ones, I don't think the bike is worth spending to much money on, hope someone can help.
I know he's pretty popular, but I've always found him kind of painful to watch, mostly due to his ongoing struggle with the English language. I do, however, like watching bike build series' on YouTube, and when he started one I figured I'd give it a chance.
I'm no professional mechanic, but it's bad enough to make me cringe. In three episodes he's essentially replaced an engine cover, a battery, oil, and fuel. His most used tools have been channel lock pliers, vice grips, a Dremel tool, and an impact drill.
Wasn't like that ......unfortunately some turnip in a cage stopped in front and I ran into the back of him, he claimed the car in front had stopped and I had no time to.......anyway he wants to go through insurance for a scratch on his bumper.....am I right in saying I'd be wasting my time contacting his insurance for running into him?
Question for yous and for anyone living in Donaghmede.
Im moving out of my gaf in Carrickmines (owner is selling) and contemplating moving in with a mate who owns a house in Donaghmede. I have no experience of the area whatsoever, from the opposite side of Dublin myself but suits work in town but my mate who owns the place says not a chance he would leave a bike in the garden around there.
Its a terraced gaf so it cant go anywhere but the front garden. I can block it in with a car 90% of the time but not always. How much stock would you lads place in those almax chains. Meant to buy on for my current place but held off when heard the guy was selling. Was thinking an almax and then get one of those anchors you bury in a few foot of concrete. I need the bike to...

Anyone know where I could get a small bracket made in Dublin?
I had to convert my sv to naked after it met a ditch a while back. I bought the bracket and clock backing from a naked bike thinking I could pick up a naked top yoke at some point, but I can't find one anywhere.
I need to get something made that would connect to the bike like this (or any other way):
but it doesn't need to extend all the way behind the clocks as I have... [Read More]
