Brexit is to be announced tomorrow by the UK. When will we be charged for VAT as well as VRT on imports?
Does the 2 year bargaining period keep us all together for now and exempt from VAT?

15 euro each way with Ryanair,cylinder head and various bike parts brought back in me cabin bag.Few funny looks from security staff,but got away with it.

Good days racing and nice sunny weather.Some serious machines and well funded teams at this event too.Team RST had a very impressive setup.
Lots of crashes throughout the the day in all classes.

Gary Johnson and William Dunlop through the Craner Curves on Thundersport 600cc bikes was some sight and sound to behold.

Mar 28, 2017 - 2:10 PM - by Kawasaki-king
So after searching for aaaages to even find one to look at,and some more searching,considering going across the water and even at that they are going for big bucks,i found this up north.
K7 with 14,000 miles and almost full history and all mots.
And its completely standard except for a tail tidy and screen.

So far iv ordered a mosfet regulator and will relocate it,
Akrapovic carbon stubby on the way,
Removed the stupid SET valve from the exhaust,
K&N filter,double H pads ready to go in & oil change.

Soon i will be getting the suspension resprung to my weight,and changing the tyres to replace the t30 battlax that i dont like for a set of metzler M7RR's

» Race Fuel Cap Seal
Mar 28, 2017 - 1:53 PM - by cb400sf
All right Lads, I have a race fuel cap on the zx6r. There is a flat gasket seal between the flange of the race cap and the fuel tank, i.e. where the fuel cap bolts onto the fuel tank. This seal was pinched badly when I bought the bike so I got a new one cut from 3mm thick Viton Rubber Material. This seal seemed to have swollen and I found out at the end of the straight in Mondello coming into turn 1 that the seal was leaking. I tightened the bolts and this sealed it up and got me through the rest of the day. I stripped it there again and the seal is cut and badly damaged, presumably from being compressed too much. I will get another seal cut for it but what material type and thickness should I get do ye think? Where would ye suggest getting it from, I am based in cork but I assume most... [Read More]

As above did anyone try the "king of gloss " or fusso coat ? They had a stand at the rds bikeshow and were selling samples but I didn't pass much heed at the time as it was a bit pricey and I already have a hape of different waxes and polishes but I'm a bit of an addict when it comes to this kind of stuff and curiosity is getting the better of me now

Had my bike knocked over and i am in the process of fixing it. i have been fortunate that the tail damage was purely damage to one decal on the tail, if i replace that decal it saves me buying a new tail but its no longer made and i need one made up. anyone have any suggestions.

thanks in advance

Father pulled this out of the garage today after spending the winter doing some bits.
It's a 1964 benly 90 which is the Japanese version of the s90. Seems to be quiet rare here has a good few differences to the s90 one of which is a rotary gearbox.

» Angle grinders - gentle reminder
Mar 25, 2017 - 12:21 PM - by -alan-
I was using mine yesterday - trying to taper the ends of a steel bar so I could get it in for a bit of leverage on something I was doing. Safety glasses in the house - fkit bar in a vice in the shed, couple of runs with the grinder sure it'll be grand ..

Couple of minutes later and it's a bigger job than I thought, sparks flying off the thing everywhere, jz I better get something. Went and got the glasses, put them on, back to the job - maybe going a wee bit harder as I had the goggles on - and about 30 seconds later the cutting disk exploded with a bang, bits flying everywhere

Now at least I know the difference between a cutting disk and a grinder. Should have known... [Read More]
