» Tyre pressure, confusing infos
Jul 30, 2016 - 4:27 PM - by User-Name
Hey Chabs,

I just have a quick question about tyre pressure on my fz6n... The manual gives the information2 that the pressure should be 36 psi front and 42 rear. On my tyres is written 42 & 42.

Any idea what information to follow?

Looking to borrow a 2001 (Mk2) Bandit 600 CDI to rule out a problem.
Just need it for a few hours if anybody has one lying around.

Would happily sort you out with a few bottles or tinnies for the inconvenience!

» Indicator, repair or replace?
Jul 30, 2016 - 3:07 PM - by Trail_Blazer
Hello all,

One of my aftermarket indicators is on the fritz, doesn't work but if i move this wire around a little bit it works again on and off. I've traced the problem down to this component, whatever is frayed or broken or loose is inside this black sheath. Can anyone tell me what this part is? Can I simply cut it out of the circuit or do I need to get a new one?

» Honda. Not caring anymore.
Jul 30, 2016 - 12:44 PM - by Dirtyshirt
Got the Pricelist for Honda Motorcycles 2016 (Ireland) earlier in the week. No Pan European, just the CTX1300, no Deauville, just the CTX700. No VFR 1200 and of cource the CBR1100XX is long gone, and nothing like it.There is now no proper tourer or sports tourer in the Honda range, apart from the 1800 Goldwing. The Fireblade and VFR800 have survived, but that seems to be purely for Race Homologation reasons.

It either means they are planning a VFR/ST/NT replacement, or they have given up. BMW/Kawasaki/Yamaha/Triumph/Moto Guzzi will be most pleased. Or else they are banking everything on the success of the Africa twin. The rest seem to be cage engines cut in half, stuck into a bike frame and any remains of a soul removed.

The end is nigh.

Popular and very over-pledged, but I wonder if it actually does what they claim it to do.

How hard could it be to take a piece of aluminum, shape it slightly at one end and fit a rubber tip from any regular earphone.. I am very tempted to DIY this.

Any thoughts?

» License lost, headed for UK
Jul 28, 2016 - 1:58 PM - by stevo52
Searched everywhere and can't find my driving licence and I'm due to take the boat for Holyhead tomorrow, which is to say I am going to Holyhead tomorrow. Meeting a friend in London tomorrow evening. I've never been stopped and asked for papers in the UK before, but I'm guessing if they do, the ol' "good lad, show it in your nearest Garda station within ten days" won't be on the cards, and I could end up in a world of sh1t.

So I reckon I've two options. One is pull into the first small village I pass and report to the police that my wallet's been stolen (hassle but gives me a clear run with a piece of paper, though I may go to hell for breaking the 7th commandment, or is it the 8th?).

Second option...take the 99% chance that I don't get asked. But... [Read More]
