» 03 Bandit gsf600 Choke lever won't stay down
Oct 26, 2016 - 4:32 PM - by Karlosdelteq
Hey folks,

New to biking as ya can tell from the post count. Done the IBT a while back, and now riding a gsf600.

It does the job, haven't ventured too far. To work and back is the usual really.

My problem is that I need the choke to start it, which is grand. However, the lever on the left side assembly will not stay in position when I pull it towards the ground.

This is frustrating as my neighbour has started giving out to me about the noise as i leave for work in the morning. (6.45am), so I'd rather be able to get it up and gone before I ruin her precious sleep

I'm new to bikes and I am mechanically not wise, but I'm willing... [Read More]

» Hesitation
Oct 25, 2016 - 5:55 PM - by Clint Eastwood
If I'm riding at 2k rpm in any gear and I suddenly open the throttle I've a big hesitation from 2k up to 3k then it pulls hard again after about 3k. If I gradually roll on the throttle there's no noticeable hesitation and the bike pulls the whole way. The hesitation only seems to be there when you give it that sudden burst of throttle between 2 and 3k. Any ideas what that might be?

After not having a close shave or any issues on the road for the last twelve months or more i was out today to get a few bits and had two dodgy close encounters !!
First one was on a main road approaching a a junction where a minor road joined from the left, i was cruisng away at about 70-75 mph (dont do them kph things) when a dozy cunt in a black cage pulled out in front of me, no chance of braking luckily there was nothing coming the other way and i was able to swerve around the cunt horn blaring all the way, was gonna stop but tbh couldnt be arsed, just waved a fist at the prick.

Second fun time was tipping through my local town at about 30mph (tg) when my own neighbour who was driving towards me decided to dive across me to get into a parking space!!!, i had to... [Read More]

» Good solicitor bray/wicklow area
Oct 24, 2016 - 12:27 PM - by mudafuda
Can anyone recommend/know a good solicitor in the Bray/Wicklow area that has a clue about road traffic offences?

Can't give away too much detail yet, but let's say I got a summons for dangerous driving.... Total bullshit!(Cant stress that enough).

I cant believe the fucker would outright lie about something that serious, and no I'm not Known to them nor was I speeding/driving erratic or acting the bollox.

Anyway, anyone know a decent solicitor?

I'll give more details after it goes to court, would absolutely love to spill the beans now but I don't think that would be wise.... fuckin raging about it to be honest!!

I got this exhaust for my bike, it was advertised as fitting a k6/7 gsxr but I cant see how the bracket is supposed to fit at all, any suggestions?

The bit that concernes me is if i go to the arrow website the only picture they have is too bad quality to see exactly how it fits but the rearset looks different.

Im lucky they the pistons didnt pierce the pad, the others were not that bad which is weird as i changed them all at the same time

if I turn it sideways you can not see it

keep checking them pads on all sides as they wear down differently
put armstrong pads in there , 10a set , there made for bike it so there worth a try.

Just got an arrow exhaust for the gixxer which is a k7. The exhaust is a slip on but because the gsxr exhaust is one piece it removes the cat. Is an ecu remap or power commander definitely needed if you remove the cat from a bike?

Not too concerned about power bought more for the noise but dont want to damage the engine if it needs a remap.

» t100r pistons with thermal slots questions
Oct 21, 2016 - 10:24 PM - by chopper
im messing round with my t100c engine . ive got some pistons which are boxed as e7603 (1970 7.5 to 1 compression t100c pistons) but are stamped e7587.i have yet to find a listing for e7587 in any parts books .
these pistons have thermal slots which in effect direct the heat to the small end boss area and reduces heat on the piston skirts / walls . this being the case should these pistons be fitted with less bore clearance , ie 4 thou instead of 5 thou ?

these piston designs are supposed to help with oil consumption, fuel economy and emissions and i am guessing triumph was trying to get by ever increasing emission regulations in the states which was their main market . however around the same time norton has designed the commando with similar thermal slotted pistons...
