» Changing a rear wheel/ chain tension adjuster
Jul 11, 2014 - 10:55 AM - by The talented Chasey Lain
Is there much to this lads. The threads/ nut on one of my own are fucked and I've ordered a replacement set but I've not really looked into how they would be changed.
The nut on mine had become seized on the threaded bar and because of that I ended up rounding the inner hex shaped adjuster. So now the only way to adjust position is to turn the lock nut which turns the whole thing, it work but it's not ideal.
How will I get the whole assembly off the swing arm?

Jul 10, 2014 - 10:03 PM - by allanon
Hi guys,

The front right hand side indicator on my bike isn't working. It works for a while then stops working. Ive checked the bulb and its fine.

Just wondering if a new indicator relay might solve the problem? They seem pretty cheap?

Thanks guys

» Tyre warmers
Jul 10, 2014 - 8:12 PM - by sean61
Is it worth using tyre warmers on road tyres at a trackday? I'm slowly getting all the gear together for track days and hope to have a track bike for next year but I'm using my road gixxer thou for the time being. Is there much point in using them without track tyres? The last day I was there it was raining and I couldn't find any grip at all. I'd buy tyre warmers before the next day if I thought they would help with grip in the wet!

» Martin retains Solo Championship
Jul 10, 2014 - 2:50 PM - by Admin
Guy Martin retained his Southern 100 Solo Championship title by edging out Dean Harrison, who finished the week with a remarkable tally of five wins.

Click the image to open in full size.

Harrison led for most of the race, setting a new lap record at 114.601mph, but was overtaken by Martin, who led by just 0.6 seconds at the chequered flag.

It was Martin's third success in the feature event of the meeting.

Earlier, Harrison beat Martin to the flag in the 600cc... [Read More]

» brittle crash bung bolts
Jul 10, 2014 - 12:11 PM - by corkgsxr
What would causes crash bung bolts to become brittle.

Was down at jog tuning and discovered the right hand bung missing.

Ordered New set. Discovered bit of bolt still in there.

Broke a ridged extractor in it. Ended up drilling the whole lot out. 3 nights later and a 45 Euro m10*fine tap (fuck you brownlows) New bung in.

Went for the matching set. Without much force (3/8th ratchet) other one snapped clean off too.

Now I couldn't figure how the first went but seeing how easy the second snapped it wouldn't have taken feck all.

Bungs on the bike about 3 years. Never took a knock. Is it just shit bolts or what

I had 4 false neutrals downshifting and one upshifting in mondello yesterday, from what I can gather swapping the detent star for a 05 on one can cure this problem in a lot of cases. Has anyone on here done this mod? Where can I get parts from suzuki? Cheers

» Fitting diaphragms
Jul 09, 2014 - 6:36 PM - by ars
When you're installing diaphragms, do you just make sure the top lip of the diaphragm is lined up correctly with the air hole on the top of the carb and then tightening on the lid will seat the the whole thing down correctly for an air tight seal? I'm hoping this is the case cos no matter what I do I can't get the top of the diaphragm to sit down in the recess on the top of the carb.

» Alarmed Disc Locks
Jul 09, 2014 - 1:50 PM - by BigDiggity

Just wondering how highly people rank alarmed disc locks on their security must-have lists?

I know the best form of defence is a ground anchor, but in addition or else when parking out and about, are they a good device or more trouble than they're worth (touchy alarms etc)?

I've been looking at these Xena ones, they look like the bogs dollocks.

Anyone any experience or recommendations on this or other disc locks??
