Q : thinking buying a project bike but its on English registration , whats the story to clear it and put it on irish plates in cork city. its a 1990 bike . I checked the vrt fee its 95 euro . any help appreciated .
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
So here she is after a good wash clay bar wipe... [Read More]
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.

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.
Just having some issues with my GZ125, the engine wont catch when pressing engine start. I think it's the battery, but I'm new to all of this so I'm not certain. Could one of you help me out and take a look at the video and picture below? Thanks!
I have a 2010 GTR1400 and was told you can get a lowering kit for it. my question is has anyone ever used or put this on there GTR. Lust racing do a drop link linkage for bikes €80 drops height of bike by 30mm. Your thoughts on this would be great cheers.
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]
no it wasnt a car killing people,
i was at the circus in galway this evening and they had a 16ft diameter metal sphere cage thing and 4 lads on scramblers going flat out inside it.
to say it was impressive was an understatement,
first time seeing that and wow.
was expecting circus to be shite
