» Suzuki GSX-R750 and 1000 recalled for defective chain adjuster
Oct 22, 2014 - 12:55 PM - by RosieJoe
Just in case you missed this:
SUZUKI is recalling certain model year GSX-R750s and GSX-R1000s over a defective chain adjuster which could cause the chain to fall off.

Recalled bikes include certain 2011-2014 GSX-R750s and 2009-2014 GSX-R1000 motorcycles, affecting 23,000 bikes in the US and 3,752 in the UK.

The Japanese firm’s summary of the recall says: ‘If a gear is missed while upshifting, the strain applied to the drive chain after the next shift may cause the rear axle to move, damaging the left-side drive chain adjuster.

‘If the drive chain adjuster gets damaged, the drive chain may come off causing

» Bike leathers buy before winter or hold on??
Oct 21, 2014 - 10:33 PM - by Kregiel
Hi Guys,

I've been thinking of getting a set of leathers a jacket and pants that could be zipped together for weekend blast and maybe daily commuting. I have gear I use daily so this would be in addition.

I made my mind on dainese set.

I am not in a rush or anything and my question is is it better to get something now or in 1-2 months time bearing in mind there would not be used that much or wait till new season? Dainese haev fixed prices so prices would probably ne similar etc??

Any thoughts?

Oct 21, 2014 - 11:25 AM - by Simba
I have a ZZr1100
I checked the manual for the correct grade of oil and it says...
"Engine Oil:
Grade SE, SF, or SG class
Viscosity SAE 10W-40, 1OW-50, 20W-40, or 20W-50"

Does this mean I can use any of these or, or , or what?

Flew over very early on Saturday morning, back home yesterday afternoon. It was my first ever time at a track in England. Well set up. Track is fucking amazing, watching it on TV, I never appreciated the elevations, drops and camber of the circuit. It's like a fucking roller coaster. Plenty of good spots to spectate from and a great atmosphere there, just a pity that Kiyo got injured but there was still some great racing to be seen. We did the pit walk on Sunday morning and it was great to see all the racers up close, they were all sound, signing away and having a chat, pictures taken etc. Next year, fuck that flying over bullshit, I'm bringing the bike!!

» Motorcycle test Galway
Oct 20, 2014 - 11:02 PM - by lockstep
Hi lads.
I have my a2 motorcycle test coming up in Galway in a month, would anyone have tips or advice?

My main worries:
I heard I'll have to go on the Coast Road. I'm a bit nervous about driving at 80kph due the wind, curves of the road and occasional pothole. How strict are they about sticking to the speed limit here? Would I get away with going 70kmh for this stretch.

Any advice for the uturn? Find them fairly hard.

Any other suggestions greatly appreciated. I have a pretext booked but still fairly nervous.

Why not just go for a one pit stop type race. Wouldn't it solve what seems like heaps of tire issues. If everyone has to do one stop what difference does it make?

There putting out ferocious power I figure it has to happen anyway why dog it out.
