Hi Guys ( collective term for all)
Ive had loads of bikes < latests Bandit 12 and currently 1998 viffer.
I cant shake the idea of a blade 954. Im 52 ( f....ng ole fellah)
I use my bike for work commute everyday 36 mile trip involving traffic .
You think blade is a silly endulgence and stay on my vfr ?
Looking to get new rear headers and link pipes for twin cans made up for my nc30. Did a search and got a couple old threads saying a few lads on here were making systems. Want a MHP style set up with a can either side. Anyone able to help?
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]
hi all just wondering do the ndls take postal applications my son wants to renew his permit he was in the ndls last year to renew his permit done the bike test and failed but has applyed again so hopefully this time luckey
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?

Who was the poor bastard that had his bandit shit itself on parkgate street outbound this evening.
Oil everywhere, near dropped the bike when I put my foot down at the lights. Would have taken a dozen cyclists with me maybe that'd be worth the scratches
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]
Anyone know any good welders near Clonmel? I took the strom for a spin the other day and the mount for the chain guard broke off. I've bought a new chain guard but need someone to weld the mount back onto the swingarm. I circled the mount in the picture below.
anybody had a triumph daytona 675 on here ?
im currently looking a 1 and hoping too pick it up monday.
anything i should be looking closely at ?
ive always want one with the twin exhuasts.
any ideas lads ?
Anyone know where I can get 4 throttle slides for a bandit 600n ? the ones in the carb are restrictor ones. I have been looking online and can't find any used ones. New ones cost 90 each which is a bit much in my opinion. Thanks.
Lads, is there anywhere that sells a good selection of nuts and bolts over the counter in Cork that's open today. Need some Counter sunk m8s m6s and a few other bits. I'm in Carrigaline but will travel to get a decent selection. Google is telling me feck all really. And brownlows ain't open on a Saturday
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.
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...
