Looking for new house atm and I came across some adds in the greater castleknock area (not that I could afford a fecking house in castleknock) but I couldn't help but think that this (Picture) to my knowledge would be a real good way to keep the bike locked up.

Drive it in the little "garage" park the cage right in front of it, put a lock on it.

i bought a pair of duchinni safari trousers , they worked ok for a short while , but now id say my leathers are more waterproof ,

i know 10 euro rubber yokes are the best , but not on a long trip ,, that shit stinks up all your gear if you wear it for any length of time ,

Sep 30, 2014 - 6:03 PM - by Whelo
Bought the CBR about 3 weeks ago and it was pulling strong. Few days after I bought it, it didn't feel like it was pulling the same. Changed the air filter, plugs and full service on it and it was only slightly better.

Overlooked one thing which I only noticed today when I was oiling the chain. There is a 42 teeth rear sprocket on the back, the standard afaik is 46. Had the chain changed the day after I bought it and never thought anything of it till now. Would -4 teeth on the back cause a decent loss of acceleration?

What will be the bike of the show this yr ? Kawasaki's H2 is a front runner so far, by a lonnnng mile !

No doubt all manufacturers will have bikes we dont know about.

Probably the most anticipated is the new Triple MT from Yamaha tdm or new Fireblade, or R1 or Suzuki GSX-F1000. Is there a new GSXR ? Or the new Africa Twin ? An even bigger cc Panigale & Multi-strada... The new 650 VStrom Adventure too, spoked wheels and all....

Kawasaki's versys 650/1000 will get a more pointed profile, what about the BMW's ? New R1200 and s1000rr and their roadster....

The new Suzuki GSX-F1000 looks veery un-Suzuki as does the Versys.

We'll see em all today.

Hi all
Was wondering what these are like?Big and heavy?Never seen one in the flesh!
im in the market for a bike and im thinking 06/07 fireblade .But now im getting a bit older and much more sensible im also looking for a level of comfort too,
At the same time im not ready to give up on the fun factor so i want something that is good for quick run and comfy enough for a long days riding too.
My last bike was an sp1, which i loved, great buzz on twisty roads but the riding position was starting to get my back,so i was thinking the blade would be a bit more comfy while still having the power handeling etc,
But is the k1200r a contender or would it... [Read More]

Sep 29, 2014 - 8:37 PM - by Derek Davis
Excuse my ignorance but, the difference between the two i've driven is mad.
I mean the feeling through the bars, the 99 4xv is loose and mental then the 01 5jj feels almost stiff not as involved as the first "Bull by the horns riding" style
Now i know they changed the set up for the 5jj but is it just the bike or my imagination.
Neither of the bikes have being damaged.

» Add a journey timer to a bike?
Sep 29, 2014 - 3:41 PM - by colly749
I know this may sound crazy, but I really want to fit a journey timer to my bike. On the radio in my cage, there is a little timer that starts counting when you turn on the iginition, so you can look down and know how long you have been driving for. It's handy for long journeys etc - but also even just to time different routes on your commute etc. Would be handy for easily timing how long a certain route on a spin takes etc. I really want one on my bike. I'm hoping I might be able to simply buy a little clock type unit, wire it into the ignition, and mount it beside the speedo.

I had a look online but cannot find anything. What I had in mind was something like this:

» Remapping / power commander question
Sep 29, 2014 - 2:41 PM - by akkakkman
Hi Lads, couple of questions on remapping an FI bike.

I'm looking to get a new bike and there's one I'm interested in but it is a bit of a spin away. It has a aftermarket exhaust and yer man banged in a k&n filter.

He doesn't know if the bike was remapped before he bought it and he didn't do anything after he changed the air filter himself.

So is remapping essential when playing around with the exhaust and air filter?
I would have thought so

And secondly, is it possible to tell if something has been remapped?
Is something like a power commander the only way to do it ? (can you flash the ecu for the same effect?)... [Read More]

Sep 29, 2014 - 12:52 PM - by dukeboy2
A few months back, my Mille was nicked from outside my house.

Now that the insurance has paid out and I've had a chance to save a few quid, I'm in the market for a replacement sports bike (4 - 4.5k budget)

I want to try out a Japanese 1L sports bike. So far, my favourite is the 04-06 Yamaha R1 (black if I can find one). I've taken a look at a couple, but want a bit more info before I buy.

The 04-06 R1 should have a factory immobilizer, right? with a red key? Having lost one bike, I want to make sure anything I buy has a decent immobilizer.

I'll be buying a big ass chain too, don't worry... [Read More]

» Jerez & Portimao ???
Sep 29, 2014 - 10:10 AM - by deef
Anyone fancy a trip to Jerez/portimao on a Trackday??? £550 for 3 days at Jerez and £640 for 3 days at portimao,or both for £940,portimao is 14/15/16 November and Jerez is 18/19/20 November,price is for track time,transport from/to uk,timing and race entry,it's thru Rehms Racedays,anyone interested needs to let me know ASAP as places are limited....

Hi guys thinking of doing this myself, Note its also possibly to just do one of the tracks to keep your costs down. We would need about 30 people willing to do this to make transport from Ireland possible.
