Any decent tool chests out there around the 100 Mark?

Feb 13, 2016 - 8:31 PM - by Airmax is gay
I bought this instead......

Temptation got the better of me this morning. I texted the lad who owns it. Then for safetys sake I said I'd better ring him too. Then, in the interest of science I thought I'd take a look. It was then I realised I'd subconciously withdrawn a large sum of money from the "new house" fund....befor I even knew what happened I was doing highly illegal speeds in County Kerry on a mint 2006 Yamaha R1.......

» 2nd spin in 6yrs.
Feb 13, 2016 - 7:56 PM - by patz
Well all, got out today for a decent spin and getting to grips with the rsvr. Much happier feel on it today , not quite getting the knee down but much more comfortable.

All in all the one thing I realised today that I had forgotten about was the comradery among bikers and people who are bikers but are unfortunately stuck in a cage . The amount of acknowledgement from fellow bikers and those not fortunate to be on their bikes was mad .
It was a great to get a wave or a nod off total strangers.
Delighted with meself today ......A big happy spa when I got home

» Wiring new rear LED indicators
Feb 13, 2016 - 7:10 PM - by davcayman
Hi, complete newbie on making mods. Bought rear fender eliminator kit and replacement LED indicators. What's best approach to wiring? Snip off existing connectors of OEM indicators and license plate light or buy new connectors? Other alternatives is find a wiring harness to connect new indicator cables to. Where could I buy new connectors or a wiring harness in Dublin? Thanks

» Yamaha YZ250F Heavy Clutch
Feb 13, 2016 - 4:39 PM - by pandy
I have a 06 Yamaha YZ250F. The clutch is unbelievably hard in it. It operates perfectly just extremely tough to pull in.

I changed the clutch springs for new ones.
New clutch cable.

I pulled apart the casings and push rod assembly. No wear on any of the rods and not bent. Whole assmebly seems smooth and unhindered with the side casings off.

Any suggestions appreciated

For example:

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I dunno about that- all these pics tell me is the headlight works....

Feb 12, 2016 - 1:39 PM - by chrismcg89
Hi All,

Finally managed to purchase me first bike, went for a 2008 Ninja 250

However, the first thing it needs is a bloody good service. I'd be handy enough with a set a spanners so want to give it a go meself.

I'm also a cheap c**t, so don't want to buy a service manual to guide me through.

Would anyone on here have a PDF version of the service manual or haynes manual that they would be willing to share?

My dillema is that getting to this place is an absolute pain in the gee and im desperate to pick myself up a bike to get me in every day. Due to lack of funds at... [Read More]

» Advice on buying a new touring bike
Feb 12, 2016 - 11:16 AM - by Rebecca85
Hi there
I currently own an old goldwing that I purchased two years ago and I wasn't sure if I'd like a bike of this size. But I love it and I am now thinking of buying a new touring bike and would love a new goldwing but its out of my price range. So I was thinking along the lines of the baby goldwing ctx 1300, or the bmw k1600 gtl/GT. I'd love to hear from anyone who owned one of these as well as anyone who has had or knows of good feed back on another make of tourer. I travel 1200km per week 90% on motorway and the rest on secondary roads. My main must have is protection from the Irish weather, radio, top box and saddlebags & possibly a bike that can pull a trailer. Iv had a Harley in the past and don't think I'd buy another one. This choice of bike will be new and the last... [Read More]

Feb 12, 2016 - 12:56 AM - by docjonty
Lovely old SRAD 600 , in rude health.

Needs a bit of a cosmetic tidy , but the important bits are all in fine fettle.
Nicely firm and damped forks (recently serviced) and new (old) shock
Decent brakes and all straight.

Looking forward to getting back out on track and "easing" myself in with a 600 after crashing last year.
In the meantime, my GSXR1000 will live again....just a few wee jobs left to do.

As above,looking for a good quality painter who can spray paint and do some decals for me on the R1.
Can anyone recommend a good person to do it,has to be top quality workmanship.

Contacted Dream Machine paint in the UK over my bike.
They told me that the front oem screen was painted,so its not a sticker or decal.
They told me about 8 weeks waiting time to spray the new double screen.Id need to send the nosecone of the bike over to them too,so thats not an option.
