Mates carb'd blackbird regulator is fried, what's the best alternative to a Honda one, I hear the yam R1 early model is a better option. Anyone here replaced there's with better results than Honda's.
Bought the 5th edition of the driver theory test Q & A a few weeks back and when I was booking the test this week I spotted that they've brought out a bloody 6th edition. Does anybody know if there's much different in the new one? Don't want to pay more money for the new one if they're nearly the same.....another nice money making project for the government!!!
Hey all;know looking for a needle in a haystack but someone on here might know where the best bike I ever owned is these days...had it when came back over from London and when really badly stuck for cash sold it for next to nothing...not really much to go all;all I remember is few things below.Reason I am looking is that out of 25-30 bikes I have owned since 87 this is only one I don`t have a pic of...stuff I remember as follows........
Roughly `84 model the one with pod on tank.
Straight chrome bars
Professionally cut frame as in middle was cut out/solo seat made and fitted and back plastics moved forward.

So I've just turned 25 in the summer, have 6 years NCB, Full license, no accidents, penalty points etc etc.
I got my renewal in the door from Liberty for 595 for TPFT on my 99 hornet. Up slightly for the 3rd year running by about 30 standard stuff from them.
I put it into the Online calculator as I know they screw you when you do it by post and by altering it to have no NCB protection, pillions on the bike, no riding of other bikes etc. I managed to get it down to 340.
I get onto Adelaide and with riding of other bikes, no claims protection, pillions, breakdown etc. it came in at 271. Very happy the lads in Quinn have been screwing me for long enough - time to say farewell!!

I'm just looking to find out if a subframe can be fixed after a small knock. It was hit from behind,very small impact and at the side the right footrest for passenger got hit. Footrest got struck, footrest tore from the subframe and did small bit of damage. Is it possible to fix subframe or do I need a new one?
I've got a few decent sized cracks in my fairing and I'm sick of looking at them so I was wondering if anyones had any luck repairing a cracked fairing and what method you used? Wouldn't mind spend a few quid on something as I'm sure I'll be cracking more fairings in the future
Anybody on the forum have a V4 Tuono? After seeing the. Price of the SD1290 the T. Looks like a bloody bargain. And they been out for 3 years so a used one is possible for more savings. Only thing is I don't see any dealers in Ireland. Is it a lost cause? It is a wee bit homely but man, that motor! And it reputedly has the least bothersome TC and you can wheelie the fook out of it.
