My electric block melted on the front head light.while I was away.did a temporary fix on it to get me home. But now looking to replace it.
It's inside the front head light housing. The light is a standard three pin light
I haven't put a stronger light in or anything. The bulb is a duel purpose bulb ..it is a normal head light and high beam combination. The block just plugs into the head light with three spades that fit in the other side of the block. ..
Simple fitting ( after ya get the head light out of the front faring / screen..)
Just no clue where to buy one...
I'm in Dublin north side So any help would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks in advance, ... [Read More]
I see Cotters are running another track day on the 29th of September. Does anyone know if this is anything to do with the Bridgestone day that is supposed to be coming up or is this just a day they are running themselves? Thanks
Guys anyone do that basic bike maintenence course in Larkin College? There is a beginners, advanced or project three different levels I myself am thinking of doing beginners just wondering has anyone ever done it?
Driving to Carlow tomorrow morning and I have two choices N7 then the M9. Motorways on my bike naked hornet arent fun at all. Tiny little screen at front of bike I catch all the wind being 6ft3
Or I could take the N81 and N80 where I think I will get much more protection from crosswinds etc
Just wonderin what the story is, seen 2 last couple of weeks at the rest stop on the limerick/galway motorway just before it ends on the gort turn off. First time was 2 gards standing beside a garda cage and seen one sat and the gard was on a deauville with a camera on a stand off the pannier, he had no lid on so long story short if you are speeding whats the story, do they radio on for another gard or can they send you a letter in the post
Right so here go's, I had a bang on Sunday. Basically a woman in a cage done a uturn on me with no indicators warning nothing just swung out. She admitted liability for it So as I jammed on both brakes on a pretty steep downhill road my inexperience led me to loose the front and send her down the road tbh that's what probably saved me as I didn't hit the cage as hard while sliding. If I had of stayed up I really doubt I'd be in good shape.I walked away pretty much ok a sprain in the wrist and a couple of bruises, the gear done it's job. All and all very lucky.
Damage to bike seems to be cosmetic, but I can't be 100% sure without it being looked at by a professional.
Can anybody recommend somewhere on the northside to get it looked at, also can anybody with a... [Read More]

TO ALL 125 Production class riders, from a post on arsebook by Baylon McCaughey:
Calling 125 production riders!! Yous havent got too many races this year so far, I've got yous going at the Enniskillen event, ( go to Cookstown 100 website for entry forms) . Your race depends on the no of entries!!. Dont want to hear any more whining about not getting out, but so far VERY FEW of yous have bothered to enter!!!!,lack of entrants= NO RACE!!!, Re Post and share with the interested parties.
It's been a while but I'm back on two wheels. Lot more guys around here now on bikes and more ride outs being organised local to me so here we go again. Been reading up on the various posts on the site and I'm happy to see nothings changed really
For some reason I kept being drawn back to a TDM so that's what I got. This one is a 1999 4TX model with 12K miles.
Seeing as similar things are asked about a billion times this months Performance Bikes has a test of all the major tyre companies sportier road tyres (not the full on trackday things) with Jeremy McWilliams posting lap times on a ZX10R.
Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa was the winner with the Metzler M7RR in second. Shockers were the Bridgestone S20 Evo being 6 seconds a lap off the Pirelli and the Michelin Pilot Power Supersport a further second behind that in last.
Any advice on getting the remaining bit out. the treded bit is left in the head it a Suzuki sv650 curvy. I was using a torque wrench to tighten it been careful its an ngk cr8E any ever have a similar problem.
Any advice would be welcome. Might be a cheap sv on dung Deel this evening
Hi all , it may seem like a silly question , but when instructed to do a u turn in the test , do u have to do it from a static position ? i.e. you pull out and immediately do the u turn , or can you actually be moving and then do the turn ?
Also , has anyone done the test in Tralee recently ? I've heard they now have a permanent tester on a bike . Any tips or advice would be greatly welcomed .
Pulled over this morning going down Naas Road past red cow, doing near 100kmph, cop jeep behind me. Bang to rights on the speed part, but they wrote it down as driving without due care and attention, 2 points for that.
For me it was just speeding, I wasnt driving without due care, I indicated to change lane at every occasion, only overtook in the overtaking lane etc
Bit harsh I think!
And as for the usual 'if you want to get cheeky' remark the minute I opened my mouth, by God they'd do your fecking head in with that crap.
