Insurance has come through after being knocked off 3 months ago and I'm finally in the position to buy something that i hope to do a lot of learning on, as the bros has sadly moved on.

Im on a restricted a2 license and have narrowed it down to a hornet 6 (between 2000 and 2002 because they're just on the power limit) and an sv650s. Would prefer the hornet to a bandit or fazer, I'm pretty sure. Would really appreciate and advise people may have, especially if they've owned or ridden both. My limit is 2k but really don't want to spend all that, as i some new gear to get too. If I'm overlooking any bikes please tell me ... [Read More]

» Some builders robbed me bike!
Apr 16, 2014 - 12:36 PM - by ehonda
Not quite as titled I came off the bike on monday on the James Larkin Road whilst overtaking. The road on the opposite side was left unsurfaced and I did not see (or there was not) any markings warning me.

Anyway I just rang the guards there expecting them to have my bike but they have no record of it being taken in and advised me I might want to call in to declare it stolen.

Bear with me now because I'm a bit concussed, but has anyone been in a similar situation and it turned out to be taken by a crowd that handles wrecks or anything? Also did anyone see my bike in clear view along that road?

Heading down asap to see if i can see it in the... [Read More]

» Engine Cutting Out When Hot
Apr 15, 2014 - 8:57 PM - by boboboland
I have a Kawasaki Xanthus. The engine is the same as a ZXR 400 L Model. I have done a compression check and all cylinders are between 145 and 155 psi. i have done my valve clearances and all the inlets are between 10&15 microns and the exhaust valves are all between 15&20 microns.I have a new head gasket fitted. I'v cleaned and balanced my carbs and the bike ticks over and runs perfect when cold and while getting warm but after driving for about 20 minutes if i slow down and stop the bike ticks over for a second and just cuts out and it gets very hard to start. once i get it started i have to hold it at about 4 or 5 thousand revs on get it to take off otherwise it will give a few chucks and cut out again and gets even harder to start............ HELP PLEASE

Apr 15, 2014 - 2:48 PM - by Polly the Polynesian Peroxide Pygmy Polygamist
i know there have been a few of these threads over the years, they always end up in big arguments between people that think they know for certain whether it can or can't be doe, but without starting another one of them threads! has anyone done this in the last few years?

is it easy to get a certificate of conformity for enduro bikes? i see some sites that claim they can get you the cert from the manufacturer easily enough.

if the bike was originally sold in ireland as 'for offroad use only', wil lthe vat still have to be paid? does vat take into consideration the age of the bike?

is it more hassle than its worth?!

» Good thinking AGV!
Apr 15, 2014 - 2:01 PM - by Airmax is gay
Spent the morning sorting out the AGV Corsa since the big helmet clear out started. Bought the Corsa before the winter so didnt get to wear it too much, especially on longer journeys but one thing I did notice was after half an hour or so the tips of my ears used get right sore. Now I'm not prince charles or anything so I was hoping it might just take a little more breaking in. Looking on the web I completely forgot the interior is fully adjustable. There's handy little foam inserts that you can pop out for exactly that issue. If I bothered my arse reading the manual I would have saved myself months of ear ache. The more I read the more I adjusted it. It was a tiny bit tight on the forehead too, again two little foam inserts and perfect! Thought it was a bloody great idea. Cant see why... [Read More]

The Bolivians are onto something:

Amazon villagers nearly killed two young men with venomous ants, tying them to a tree swarming with the insects for allegedly stealing three motorcycles, Bolivian authorities said.

One of the men remained in intensive care while the other had required dialysis for kidney failure, Dr Roberto Paz told reporters in Cochabamba.

The venomous ants, of the pseudomyrmex triplarinus species, live in symbiosis with the triplaris tree variety. Their venom has anti-inflammatory properties and is used as a traditional cure for
