Hi Guys, just a heads up that a truck lost a load of diesel or Oil just before the Enniskerry turnoff going North and all the way to just after the down ramp from Fasseroe. (You'll see the truck broken down)
I got the smell first and then I seen the wet.
Right, so with the announcemnt that Gresini are going to be the Aprilia GP team for 2014, and Mark VDS announcing a factory Honda for Redding, does that mean that there will be a Pramac seat for Norge?
Rumours are that Iannone is going to the factory team to replace Crutchlow, leaving a seat free with Hernandez.
I bought a VFR off a guy from here, sound man is Stephen, don't know his biker.ie name though. He mentioned i should get a spare key for the VFR as its got this Honda Ignition Safety System thing. Anyone know of a dealer that can do this in Dooblin / Kildare / Meath?
and decided to spring for a set of the Renthals for the old girl. Normally when I buy bars I spring for the cheapies for $10 this time I spent $60 on a set of Renthal ultra lows . Initial impressions are less vibration then the cheapies and the finish is certainly nicer , any other benefits one wonders. Gratuitous pictures of the Rex ... [Read More]
Head gasket just changed after it blew & was left sitting for a few months.
Valve Timing re-checked 3 times over
Coils swapped around (I've seen fatter sparks but she's definitely sparking on all 4...don't think weak spark is an issue)
Plugs are coming out wet after cranking it over so its fuelling all 4 cylinders...no attempt to start though.
Attempted bump starting it a few times but it won't turn the engine over; just locks the back wheel, even in 6th. The crank turns over grand with a socket on the end of it & moving it by hand though, and it flies around on the starter. She'll roll in gear... [Read More]

I've bought a race bike and have a set of tyre warmers ordered. What size generator would be best to get for running them? I want to get the smallest one I need as I will have to transport it in the cage boot. Also, any recommended places to get one cheap?
lads a really nice lady approached us today at the bike run and asked between tears could we show up for her husbands funeral tomorrow at 12 noon at the cathedral in killarney. His name is Ernest Loony and he was a biker. I'm gonna work my day around showing up there anyway and would be very grateful if anyone else would be on for it.

Anyone know if it's possible for the shop I got the work done in messed up or maybe a faulty seal. ???defo shouldn't have gone this quick surly. Any thoughts???

Well done to the Loughshinny club and marshals and medical team for getting through a difficult couple of days, between parked cars delaying practice and lots of red flags on the day.

hi. taking my swinging arm off my kawasaki gt550 1998 g4 for greasing, there was no locating pin in the shaft drive and i could not find a hole in the spline for the pin to locate. as there is a spring pushing forewards iput it back together hoping for the best. maybe if i drill the spline to take a pin and thread the shaft this will do. what do you think. thanks. ray
