Thinking of picking up one of these soon and was wondering what mods need to be done to make one of these easy to live with.
I keep hearing horror stories of clutches going, battery upgrades needed etc. etc.
Any help appreciated.

» Which lid would you go for?
Aug 01, 2014 - 10:21 PM - by Airmax is gay
After making shit of my new RPHA10+, I'm in the market for a new lid. I've it narrowed down to around 5 I like the look of. My max budget is 450. I am refusing point blank to go over this! The RPHA10+ in the "lorenzo carbon" is my fave, but after seeing it in the flesh, right next to the new XLite x802R in carbon, the Xlite looks even better quality especially the carbon quality. The next is the new Nexx XR2 Carbon, I had an early XR1R a few years back but, though it was a great lid, I had issues with the visor sealing. The other 2 are an Arai Quantum ST, as a safe option (a few on fleabay just fall into budget) and a Shoei Xspirit 2 (again just falling into budget on special offer). I'm fuggin tormenting myself on ebay the last few weeks and missed out on the carbon lorenzo... [Read More]

Aug 01, 2014 - 8:14 PM - by ic18
I picked myself up a little CBR600FP trackbike in the UK that needs a bit of work. So I might use this thread for help and info if people don't mind?

Theres a list of things to do so hopefully people can give me some help with answers?

- Oil and filter. Whats best to use?
- Plugs. Best plug?
- Air filter. Do lads run the standard filter or a different jobbie?
- Front and Rear Pads. Whats the job to use? It'll only be used on track.
- Coolant. Should I flush the system?
- Battery. It needs a battery and I think is running total loss. How do I check that its running total loss and is it much of a job to run the regulator/rectifier again?
- Brake fluid. There are braided lines on the front. Should I use a particular Dot... [Read More]

Has anyone got a contour? If so how would you rate them?

Also can you advise me on the best/cheapest place to pick up a contour helmet camera?

Not interested in the gopro as it looks too big mounted on a helmet.

» Alarm issue
Jul 31, 2014 - 8:30 PM - by biker27
Have issue with Laserline 862 alarm/immobiliser

Once I turn off the ignition, the alarm will arm automatically. If I go to start again, neither of the two fobs will disarm the alarm and the bike won't start.

It bleeps for about 10seconds, both indicators turn on and then alarm goes off. Either of the fobs will then turn the alarm off. Bike can then be started.

The fobs won't arm it either.

I tried to reset the fob by pressing the two buttons together but no luck.

Don't know if it is the battery in the alarm, I disconnected from the bike and it still buzzed away so must have some power left it in.

From reading on here, they seem to be regarding as being shit....

» WSBK - South African round cancelled
Jul 31, 2014 - 1:03 PM - by Big Man Andy
Night race in Qatar instead.

The FIM and Dorna WSBK Organization would like to announce the confirmation of the Qatar Round at Losail International Circuit, scheduled for 2 November 2014.

The venue was on the WSBK calendar for five consecutive years between 2005 and 2009. In 2014, the races will be taking place under floodlights for the first time.

The impressive lighting system of the Losail International Circuit is powered by 44 13-megawatt generators and made up of 1000 structures, 3600 light bulbs and 500km of wires.

As the round will be held at night time, the final prize-giving ceremony for both WSBK and WSS classes will take place in Doha the following day, on the evening of Monday 3 November.

Hi lads/ladys

Just some footage from last Sunday. Went with advance group (strong group) but no regrets, had a great run, plenty space allowing me to go at my own pace and surprisingly found this group very safe (I had always thought that those quick lads will just run me over).
Had a great day! Great craic on and off the track. Massive thanks to organisers, marshals and all involved.
Enjoy watching :)

Thanks to the chap on the red bandit who stopped on the M50 to see if I was okay.

I had gotten a puncture and was awaiting rescue from the AA.

Once again generosity of the biker community prevails.

Funnily enough half the Irish army and a few Garda cars passed me.

Thank You again!
