Well the bike won't start, not a thing from the alarm.. Was taking to a lad in England and he said from what I told him I should just order a new alarm box and fobs and I should be off and running again..
I'm after the M357T V2:1
Also if he's on here massive thanks to the masters 600 super sport rider No:85 for giving me a lift back to the house
Trip to work brings me past the North Wall docks, saw two "elderly gents" on equally elderly Triumphs yesterday, and further up some vintage cages on the quays, then this morning an old ( but clean ) Norton Commando and an extremely loud orange Kawasaki (guessing it was a KH something) passed by , on their way to catch the boat back .
I don't normally see so many neat "classic" bikes on/off the boat - is there a meet on somewhere - or are just here for the weather ?
Pulled her out of the corner of the shed, after two years she is looking a sorry for herself. Finances forced me to abandon the project, but thankfully that's changed, so I decided to do something sensible with the few quid I've saved before I do something stupid with it. Herself seems to disagree with my opinion of sensible but that would be her problem!
Well I spoilt myself yesterday in buying an inter phone kit (F4MC) from the lads in cotters. Utterly shameless plug but there's no b/s there and they were as always good to me with the usual biker chat and Carlos passing thru talking dirt and torque curves in the background .....anyway I have been looking at these things for a while and am thrilled. Carefully wired it all in......got the hang of connecting the phone and the radio bit is cool...a useful tool. I just bought the single unit as I'm a one man show on a bike.
Recently rented a gs for a week. Never been interested in bmw's and had to be convinced to rent the gs but it was class. Ticked all the boxes- quick enough and super comfortable, plenty low down torque and more than capable of munching the miles.
We'll anyway- I'm gonna sell the gsxr and get a gs. Looking for an 05/06- anyone have any advice on what to look out for? Advice on where to buy?
Seen a few on gumtree Belfast- good prices and fully loaded.
Ah this is embarrassing..so why keep it to myself? I got the random idea to change the front tyre of the K1100Lt something I had never done before mainly because i knew that every bolt has been rounded off over the years and various spurious fasteners had been added by diverse parties . Anyway after much rustola and hammering the wheel was extracted and the new tyre fitted.....It was on the mainstand with a hydraulic car jack. So as i was foostering around lining up the wheel the big yoke keeled over sideways off its stand.
I have it on its side stand now with concrete blocks on either side but obviously I'd like to get that wheel in. I cannot get it back up on the main stand so I'm just wondering if there any ideas out there....
Please share folks, especially in Leinster area.
Mate of mine had his white Honda Pan European ST1100 stolen this morning in the Blanchardstown area.

Killalane road racing at Skerries this weekend, Practice on Saturday and racing from 10 am all day Sunday. This is the last of the Road races until spring of 2015 so cant wait . Hope its a good weekend anyone heading up.
I need a little bit of advice. Here’s the problem. I have a CBR600FY with 25000 miles on it. Over the last couple of week it’s been a bit lumpy at low revs 3000 rpm and below. Cut out on a couple of occasions doing 30mph in second gear @4000rpm like it was fuel starvation. If left for 5-10 minutes it would start again and run ok.
This morning when I pressed the button to start the bike, she turned over slower than usual before she fired up. Rode to work ok.
This afternoon, I rode home3-4 miles from work and parked up. However, when I went to start the bike up some 10 to 15 minutes later battery didn’t have enough power to turn the engine over.
I charged the battery up and she started first prod of the... [Read More]
I am supposed to be doing my first track day this Friday. Only problem is that I applied for renewal of my driving licence nearly two weeks ago. They took my old licence off me and the new one still hasn't arrived. Will this be a problem in mondello? Is there any way around it?

The fuel cap on my cousins fazer 600 wouldn't open last night, the key was turning and you could feel it slightly catch but not much else. The cap was opening a little, but was still locked.
We had to pry/pop it open and discovered the the catch is held on with 2 screws which had loosened ( allowing the cap to open a little but preventing the key from opening the lock).
The latch cover broke while prying the cap open and needs replacing,
Anyway long story short, a lot of bikes have the same set up so keep and eye of the two screws and ye could save yourself a lot of hassle, he was lucky and near his house when the issue raised it's ugly head, could easily have happen while on a long spin.
Tried one of these on over at Silverstone at the weekend.
They offered it to me for 300 sterling + p&p.
Is that a good price? Cant see it cheaper anywhere myself.
Seen it here for 425 - http://www.motorcycleshop.ie/x-lite-...uro-3022-p.asp free delivery, so wouldn't be a whole lot more than the UK lot after conversion and p&p. And I'd like to keep the money here in Ireland to be honest.
Anyone know where the date of manufacture can be found on an x-lite lid?

I'm having a bit of trouble with the engine temp readout on my 99 Yam R1. It constantly reads Lo as though the engine wasn't heating up. I'll get around to properly fixing it this weekend id say, but for the time being, is it driveable? I think I remember reading that the thermostat that controls the fan is separate to the sensor that feeds the readout. If it is, I'm happy enough for the next few days.

Sunday last, as I was roasting in the sun in Laragh licking the ice cream of the flake in "99", the distinctive note of a little thumper came up the hill,a Desmo Ducati 250/350 single,as he disappeared out of sight and the note abated the equally distinctive smell of castor based oil wafted through the air.............. Nirvana!! ....... a magic moment
