» A75 Motorway France?
Feb 26, 2015 - 9:05 PM - by redout
Anyone been on this with the bike? Opinions? Reading some stuff saying that its not for all vehicles because there is a massive amount of steep climbs and descents through the Massif Central. Its saying something about over 60km of it above 3,600ft then losing 2,000ft in 9km as you hit the Mediterranean. I wouldn't usually mind but I am supposed to be hitting this in a few weeks loaded with panniers, top box etc. I know from going over the Pyrenees last year that some of them twisties can be hairy loaded with gear.

Hi, I've been looking for an alternative to a bike trailer for 2 reasons, I've no room to store it and the prices are crazy, anyway I've seen a few towing dollys that can pull full size bikes, they clip on to your existing towbar assembly and look fairly neat, anyone have any experience of using them? Where did you get it? I found a few on but nothing on, any chance they would be on sale at RDS this weekend? Cheers for any advise

» Aldi own brand motorcycle gear
Feb 26, 2015 - 12:55 PM - by ascalon
Check out the details on Visordown:

"The jacket and trousers pass the requirements for impact abrasion and impact cut resistance demanded by the EN13595-1: standard Level two. In addition, they exceed the requirement for impact abrasion (seven seconds), achieving over 13 seconds of abrasion resistance over the entire garment."

Sounds legit...

Don't look bad either. The gear, not the bloke.

» Classic bike
Feb 26, 2015 - 12:31 PM - by Fledermaus
Found this site,maybe some of you have used it already,I had not.
I've ordered a few Brit bits off it,they are very good with questions/order status updates etc. which I like,but more than that they seem to have a really comprehensive and diverse range of bits for Brit bikes primarily,and also some stuff for jap and European classics,and it's easy to navigate unlike a lot of the classic bike parts websites I've used.
Anyway,hopefully some of you will find it helpful.

Feb 26, 2015 - 11:39 AM - by redbranchknight
Does anybody know if a 200 size biketek warmer will work correctly on a 180 rear. Just concerned about it bunching? Warmers will mainly be used with 180 but it would be nice to be able to use them on a larger tyre in the future.

Thanks in advance

» Joey’s bar to make roads’ debut at kdm cookstown 100
Feb 26, 2015 - 10:06 AM - by Baylon McCaughey

In the halcyon days two-stroke machinery were the mainstay of pure road racing grids, but in recent years they have almost become obsolete.

However, a new team is about to rejuvenate the two stroke grids by putting both 125cc and 250cc bikes into racing action at all of this year’s National Road Races, beginning with the KDM Cookstown 100 in April.

Joey’s Bar’ owned and run by the late great Joey Dunlop’s family, in his hometown of Ballymoney, have set up their own team for 2015, complete with an instantly recognisable livery that will no doubt grab the attention of road racing fans, both young and old.

Joey’s Bar will support leading two-stroke racer Sam Wilson will... [Read More]

Feb 25, 2015 - 9:26 PM - by Dave_S
Paint on the springs on my Xjr is in bits, new or good second hand ones are mad money. Can I powdercoat them? Few companies in England will refurb the whole shock but for 150 sterling a side, can't justify spending over 400 euro on a 2.5k bike, espically when I'm reasonably happy with the performance of the suppension. Any other ideas?

» 1999 Bandit 600S Damaged
Feb 25, 2015 - 5:36 PM - by jtessier72
Hi all,

Registered yesterday, was planning to lurk awhile but now find I need to post.

Today, some delivery guys left a 2m tall office cabinet next to my Bandit. Somehow the cabinet toppled over and landed square on my speedo, smashing the glass and twisting the instruments. The inside plastic liner of the fairing popped up a bit too.

It doesn't look like there is really any further damage other than the instrument panel and a bit of a star on the screen where a screw holds it to the fairing.

In fairness, the business has offered to pay for the damage. Any suggestions on where to take it for an estimate or how to proceed with this?

I'll know shortly if it's just the glass on the speedo or if the speedo itself is... [Read More]

» Ignition won't engage, stuck.
Feb 25, 2015 - 8:26 AM - by Jaden
NT700V Dullville.

Ignition will only go from "off" to "on", but no lights on the dash. Won't go to "Ignition" or even "Lock" for that matter.

Battery is reading ok - 12.7V
Checked all the fuses.
WD40 into the lock, enough to float a battleship.
Tried both sets of keys.

Feels like it's a mechanical issue with the lock itself. Anyone any ideas on what to try next?

Kinda boned here, need to get to work. Headford/Tuam area.

As always thanks in advance for any help or light you can shine in this one.

Bought an 03 fazer tonight. Absolutely delighted with it and drove it home tonight. Back brake needs to be looked at and probs a service. Happy days I will sort that over the weekend.

Only problem I am stuck on is the following. The Rev counter shoots from actual reading to zero and back to actual reading. Wasn't massivily concerned but Mr Google has informed me this is a fault code. Possibly a throttle position sensor (tps). Anyone know wtf I do to sort this? Is it going to have a negative effect on bike mechanically(bike is going like a dream) . Like I said any help is much appreciated. Hope it makes sense.... [Read More]
