» Oil Leak on TL
Jul 20, 2015 - 6:19 PM - by the landshark
Me bloody tl melted its clutch cover yesterday, it was struggling to keep the temperature down anyway on the slow spin.
Ten years of ownership and nary a bother till yesterday, the ecu somehow decided to "forget" its tune and go lean(it has never done this before) the rad fins were corroded away to fuck all so it wouldn't cool properly and the slipper clutch reddened, shit a set of friction plates and threw oil at the cover hot enough to melt it.
Question is how would an ecu forget a tune, i've had the battery out for ages before and it stayed grand.
Anyone with a spare cover for one of these that they don't want give me a shout, beer tokens available.
I must check out billet ones, they'd be harder to melt anyway.

Anyone ever get a radiator from china?
The lower rad on me TLR is fucked and the upper one ropey,
Robinsons want over a grand sterling for the pair, ebay with shipping from china is about 160 plus whatever tax ill get hit with.
Just wondered has anyone any experience of the quality of these.
If they're any way decent i can get five sets for the price of a suzuki oe pair.

Hi All
There will be a riders' forum in Mondello Park on the first of August after the Saturday racing. This will be for riders to air their views and help us go forward as best we can in the future. Even if you are not entered for the racing, as a rider it would be good to hear new ideas. See you there. Members of the racing clubs and the short circuit committee will be in attendance.

Jul 20, 2015 - 5:51 PM - by tpmlogan
With this meeting coming so soon after the weekend's Masters event, we are extending the closing date from today until this Friday 24th July. After that we will have to charge late fees. If you have a problem just ring me and I'll try to help.
The trophies for this meeting are being sponsored, thanks to the sterling efforts of Shane Graham. After each race on the Sunday there will be a podium presentation for all classes to give everyone the recognition they deserve.
The entries can be phoned through to me and we do have credit card facilities.
I must congratulate the 125/300 riders for getting so many entries in on time. Well done lads.

» Large parcel delivery from UK?
Jul 20, 2015 - 3:21 PM - by sean61
A mate recently had a small accident on his k1 gsxr 600 but the only damage was to the nose fairing. I've just found one on ebay in the UK and it's the same colour to make things handy. The problem is that couriers won't quote the seller because it's so big (75x70x70cm and 10kg). Is there any other options for delivery? The seller said if I could sort collection he would ship it no problem

Also if someone here has a blue/white nose fairing for a k1 600 that would be fantastic

» Adelaide Insurance - Computer says no
Jul 20, 2015 - 2:35 PM - by Sykes
I was just onto Adelaide Insurance there to insure a Moto-Guzzi NTx 750 with them. I wanted to add it to my current policy that I have two bikes on.

The guy on the other end of the phone told me they could not insure me because they dont have that bike on the drop down box of Moto -Guzzi's on their system and there was nothing could be done about it.

I asked could I contact RSA who underwrite for them and give them the machine details and he said "No, they wont add anything to the list".

Is this not the biggest load of bullshite you have ever heard?

» 600 shadow carb problems
Jul 20, 2015 - 10:15 AM - by npgallag

Got 600 shadow recently with few problems with carbs. It goes fine up to 80kph but starts stuttering then and wont go any faster...carbs were rebuilt by previous owner and not stuttering below 80kph on lower gears so im thinking there is air getting in somewhere..? I figure it will need a carb rebuild anyway as not sure how well previous owner did it.

» GSXR K6 Clock problem
Jul 19, 2015 - 7:30 PM - by Elsie
Recently bought a K6 with 5k miles on it , totally unmolested / mint. Has been great for the past two months but now digital part of clocks and rev counter are coming on / off intermittently. Bike is driving fine and neutral light , indicators etc all showing up fine on the cluster.

Specifically - driving along no issue then clock goes blank and rev counter needle in the red without actually increasing the revs

Has anyone had this specific problem , have checked the wiring in general looks fine.

» CB250 indicator/wiring prob
Jul 19, 2015 - 2:21 PM - by Carlsberg

I have everything done on my bike now except for the front right indicator.
I got a new bulb & it wasn't that so I pulled the front headlamp off to get at the wiring & there is a wire (solid black) coming off that indicator doing nothing. The other wire (black with blue line) is going to a blue wire.
Can anyone tell me where that black wire is supposed to go, there was 2 obvious wires I tried but none have the desired effect, ie it either stays solid or blinks slowly & stays solid when the other side is on.

If I follow the rear indicator on the same side to the front would I just wire it the same?

» VFR 800 2002 issues
Jul 19, 2015 - 1:43 PM - by Gambo
Hi guys.
New to this site and new to VFRs so need a little help.
Handles great. Works well up through the gears and the vtec cuts in at around 6500 revs.
Revs all the way up to max revs in lower gears but will not go above 9000 revs in 5th gear and 8000 revs in 6th gear.
Maximum speed is about 185km/hour
Any ideas?
Could there be a limiter on it?
Could there be a vtec issue?
As you can see, clueless.
Got her second hand so dont know the history.

» Cbr 600rr beeping noise when idle
Jul 18, 2015 - 8:55 PM - by OC 78
Hey Chiefs, I've a 2003 model cbr 600rr, that has a beeping noise when the bike is running on idle and stops as soon as the throttle is opened, I taught it was electronic but it could as be mechanical, it happens intermittently. The bike is running great and idles at 1000 revs without fluctuating, there is no alarm on the bike, never come across this before on all the other jap bikes I've had in the past. I know the 600rr is a popular track bike so any ideas. I've even fired on a Remus can with no baffle and can still hear it.
