Heading to Walderstown tomorrow for the first time with the young lad. Can someone roughly tell me how to get there, I know athlone fairly well and am coming from the west.
Also where is the paddock area as theres a lad racing my old r6 and I would like to say hey.
Finally any good spots to watch from??
Looking forward to some racing between the ditches - been a couple of years since ive gone.
Lads im after a kit to make moulds to do engine casings, copy bits, etc.
Carbon mods uk have a variety of kits but does anyone know of an irish company doing them?
Ebay searches usually yeild small helicopter drone things..
Masters Superbike Championship action is back on the menu at Mondello Park with entries on the increase and pre-booked admission prices decreasing as tickets are made available on-line for the first time. Spectators booking their tickets in advance will now pay just €10 for admission to Ireland's highest quality short circuit... [Read More]
I had a problem today with my bike, i was working on on installing a center stand that required to remove the front foot rest and since i couldn't revome the bolts from it i had to workarround it, basically for not breaking the footrest bolts by removing the break pedal.
Well the pedal was almoust already lose because the bolt was broken.
Now i was wondering if anyone knows a place in dublin were i could weld a new bolt to that part. The part is in perfect condition just that the bolt is broken.
Hey yiz. St 1300. When fan comes on sounds horrible since today. .
Sounds like blades are hitting something. No bumps or anything different. Hard to get in and see fan. Do bearings go on fans? Sounds like a good bang will make it go out of it if that makes sense. Too much hassle to get in at it now but am wondering anyone ever get same?
Has anyone done any adventure touring/riding courses that they'd recommend.
I'm planning to do some long distance adventure trips and wanna be equipped with the skills to tackle any roads or trails I come across on a 200kg+ bike, trip planning, road side maintenance etc.
Now I know there's no substitute for good aul experience but just trying to get a head start.
I currently have a Tiger 800, may change next year for a newer one or an Africa Twin... But that's neither here nor there...
Having done a bit of research they seem to only really be in the uk, the most prominent ones seem to be:
BMW Off Road Skills
Triumph Trail Quest
Adventure Bike Training Uk
MOTO Scotland (although... [Read More]
Unfortunately I am basically immobile now (provisional) and up to my ears in work related duties. Will someone from Dublin area be able to see a motorcycle above for me? Will be happy to repay the favor either in money* or beer.
I need just a basic assessment - is the frame straight, bearings not shot, engine sounds normally, no signs of abuse.
*) up to 4% of the purchase value if done well and by knowledgeable person
A few times recently my battery has been flat. For example, started up early morning no problem. Drove 20km and parked it. Tried to restart an hour later, lights came on dimly and would hardly turn over, clock reset itself. I had to get a jump start. Drove a further 2km and parked it for the day.
Started no problem about 8 hours later that day and drove the bike home the 22km, put the battery on charge and within a few minutes it says full. This has happened a few times.
Multimeter on the battery says 12.4V
Is something intermittently draining it? Any help would be appreciated.
I have a 2004 zx6r track bike with track fairings, they were fitted when i got the bike. The initial fitting of them wasn't the best but I have the fairings and belly pan sorted out, but the tail piece is my concern, worth noting that the tail piece and the seat pan are all the one unit, i just have a foam pad on the seat pan. The tail piece is secured in place with only two bolts, one either side into the rear sub frame, marked with the red circle in the pic below. The tail piece has recesses for these bolts. I am just wondering should there also be bolts fitted down through the back of the tail piece into the rear sub frame, as per the blue arrow? There are no recesses or anything for these bolts and to be honest it would destroy the smooth look of the tail piece but there seems to be a... [Read More]
Hi guys, I have a BMW f650 st and am looking for just three fairing clips and bolts anyone know where I can get these in Cork or hardware store? For the sake of just three bolts I don't want to order online.
I was messing about on Liberty Insurance trying again to decide what size bike to get thinking there would be a monumental difference between the insurance of a 125cc and a 250cc, one was 1.05k one was 1.2k... I honestly wasn't prepared for the price to be that high at ALL any tips for lowering my insurance quote? The guy I'll be doing my IBT with said he would do a Insurance Skills Assessment which would lower my quote but other than that I have no idea.
Well lads, my battery in my 2011 SXF 350 MX bike has been a bit weak lately and I'm thinking of upgrading. Its a bollix if it runs flat in the middle of forestry as have no back up kick start! It currently has the OE spec Yuasa but I've been looking at gel batteries and lithium Ion ones. Lithium Ion is the most expensive but not by a massive amount really. Now i know feck all about em really so just wondering would it be worth the extra money over a gel?
Just wondering if people had a view on which helmet is the best for the upright position.
I was looking at the Shark Race R Pro ......... mainly because its said to be the safest in the Shark range. But being designed for pure race fit I'm not sure if it would suit the upright position of the Z1000.
Lads do any of you use an armoured shirt like the knox type?, just thinking it would be handy for touring, wear that under any jacket and you have your proection plus you can bring a waterproof jacket for rain and a leather one for dry weather, both would pack down small if you take all the armour out of them.
Seems to be a good setup but just wondering if any of you know the pros and cons of it, cost about two hundred quid so dont want to throw money away if not worth it, wasted enough money on shit over the years
