Anyone know where I could pick up a pair of Torsion Seat spring like these:

Ideally around the midlands.
Or anyone have a pair they would be willing to sell?

Tried pretty much all the local motor factors, parts shops etc with no luck yet...

CIA Honda’s Jack Kennedy is in confident mood ahead of this weekend’s World Supersport clash at Assen and says the ankle he broke at Phillip Island is getting better every day.

The Irishman had a tough time of it at Motorland Aragon but expects better in Holland and is counting on a lot of support from the huge British contingent of spectators.

Lads, my poor KTM 690 is clicking worse than an elephant with arthritis she had a dealer service with the tappets checked just 2000 miles ago and yet its gone extreeeeeeemely rattly, to the point that I've her parked up for some rehab!

I rang Phillip McCallen and was pleasantly surprised to get through to him personally! He reckoned that its UNLIKELY TO BE THE TAPPETS and that it could be the CAM CHAIN TENSIONER that is causing my woes!

Any of you fellers have any experience of a clicky KTM? They are the most reliable bikes on the road without a shadow of a doubt so maybe you haven't...... ... [Read More]

» Anyone any Cable management tips?
Apr 23, 2014 - 11:44 PM - by scudster
Been trying to tidy up and hide the cables and plugs on the front of the Husky after fitting a round headlight from a Suzuki DR125. The headlight leaves it a bit cramped for all the cables and hard to tidy them up without over flexing or stressing them. Anyone got any tips for keeping the reasonably neat while still allowing sufficent movement for the steering?

» Laverty to ride Pedrosa in 2015 ?
Apr 23, 2014 - 10:21 PM - by Blade RR
I aint been watching the motogp ( or will be ) this year.

Reading on one of the Spanish mags, Dani Pedrosa has been linked with a possible move Suzuki for their gp outfit in 2015. Suzuki already have the backing of dorna, so its a question of money, well almost. Will HRC sign him again next year, I doubt it myself, 9 yrs a HRC rider and no disco, he aint getting any younger either.

Way I see it, Suzuki have Laverty in WSBK with his wild card gp rides this year, & DePuniet who's been testing the bike for the last 2 yrs or thereabouts. Then you have Pedrosa...who can bring big sponsorship.

I realise its early days but Laverty will be under big pressure (more then ever), unless he has been assured a seat on their gp bike already which i... [Read More]

Apr 23, 2014 - 10:03 PM - by Liam977
Noticed the front wheel bearings on the bike have a bit of play in them and ar a little rough , I'm planing on doing both front and back while I'm at it , the thing is would you get genuine wheel bearings or would spurious ones be ok for bike ,
I never had any problem fitting the spurious bearings in cages before , just taught I'd get second opinion for using them

I am looking for a 1000 sport bike Ive looked at a few bikes but cant find anything that tickles my fancy. Anyone any Ideas.

There was a RC8 for sale in the red bull colours it was a bit more but I would pay a bit more fot the right bike(a RC8)

» Is this doable?
Apr 23, 2014 - 5:17 PM - by redout
Looking for some advice. Contemplating Cherbourg - Barcelona in one go. Google is saying 1,368km and 16hrs of driving if you avoid the tolls. If you use the toll roads apparently it will cost just over €70 to reach the Spanish border but be about 4hrs quicker. By the time you got off the ferry it would be about 4pm. Funds are tight so would rather avoid the night in b&b/hotel. Most of the driving would be through the night so not much traffic and should arrive in Barcelona next morning or am I being overly optimistic? Not planning on doing any proper touring until I hit Spain which is why I would just rather do a straight run.

I reckon short breaks every 3 hrs, presuming there is plenty 24hr petrol stations along the way?

» Josh Elliott smashes lap record on way to his first British Championship podium!
Apr 23, 2014 - 10:53 AM - by Sandy
Local bike racer Josh Elliott (19 yrs) had a fantastic first round of the British National Superstock Championship at Brands Hatch in Kent aboard the GA/ Homer Racing Alzhemier’s Society, Socialites Kawasaki.

Off the back of a very successful test in Spain in late March, the teenager hit the ground running with his newly merged team, remaining in the top three on the time sheets all weekend. This returned him his first front row start in the series with a time below the existing lap record.

Elliott made a decent start off the line in the race but being on the inside against the steepest line up the hill towards turn one hurt him, as he lost some places. He recovered into 5th on lap one and immediately started to make further progress.
