Looking for a seat upolsterer in Dublin to fit seat covers to the Ducati and BMW seats.
Have the covers here,just need someone with a large staple gun and the experience to fit them for me.
The long dark evenings are receding and talk of the 2017 short circuit season begins. For some it's the need of an entirety of smooth slick tyres and extra dyno runs, for others it's adapting to a new machine in the hope of securing some silverware and precious prize money. Then there are this lot
Had to pop down to the shop for a few eggs for the fried rice. I noticed something different... It's still a bit bright and its 5.45 thank fuck for the little things. Gonna be bright having a run after work now happy days.
I need a couple of H3 bulbs for the spots on my bike. Can anyone recommend somewhere in Ireland that I can buy them online for a good price? Busy in work the next week and would like to get some replaced asap.
Anybody got one by any chance, it was on sale in December. I don't normally get it, but there is an article about a test ride on a BMW 1600GTL, and my father is currently looking at these for a change before May.

Hey guys. The rear caliper on the Triumph is a two piston job. It has no power in it so I had a look and one piston is moving fine but the other isn't budging. Pad is worn at an angle. If I clamp the one that's moving, spray the hell out of it with brake cleaner and depress the pedal, is it liable to move or am I going to stress another point in the system? Cheers, Mick.
hi all, said id make a thread for this, currently doing up an 89 yamaha fzr250, where do i start??
well i bought the bike way back in feb 2005, suffered terribly with it (carbs what else) spent an arm and a leg trying to get it to run, fucked it in the corner of the shed out of sheer frustration and went on in my biking life with a succession of gsxr's and yzf r1's etc.
But getting the little fizzer going has always been in the back of my mind, back in 05 there was really no info on them, being a jap import and all the manuals in japanese, most mechanics here wouldn't touch them and nobody really knew anything about how to keep them running.
but things have changed, theres the internet, google translate and web forums so theres always an answer... [Read More]
Got code 24 and 25 coming up,
Basterding thing , engine cut coming home lucky it wasnt on a bend...

Strange- thought coilpacks were cyl 1+4 And 2+3...
Anyone any ideas??
be hard to check as sometimes it happens sometimes it doesnt happen,
Have been riding around the last couple of days with it in dealer mode so i can catch the code as it happened twice last week but of course when i take the key out the fi light disapears ...
Just got their weekly mail. They have super little suction Vices for 8.99
Look like a great job, Socket sets for 20 bucks. Digital calipers and swarfega for dirty hands..
Slow day in work,,, nuff said...
Anyone any recommendations on where to get a decent bike lift on a budget. I have seen a few around thee 350/400 mark online on Amazon and the likes. Where sells them in Ireland and any recommendations?
With recent travelling on the motorway (and prospects of changing jobs which might lead to even more motorway riding as well as filtering through city center traffic) I was thinking about getting a Deauville as I heard weather/wind protection is great on them.
However talking to guys who have never owned or ridden one of these I was told that they re painfully slow.....hence the nick name Dullsville...
Now Im asking you guys for real world experience.
How do they fare against the bandit 600?
Would they ve similar torque/power despite the difference in horsepower?
I dont care about top speed as long as I can drive @ 140 km/h and have a bit room for overtaking...
Hi all, is there anyone here into the elsie scene, I don't know if there is/was as much of an interest on them here as there was across the water? I just found out where there is a pile of lc parts and they might be of use to someone here!
Doing a bit of clearing out here and found the Buy and Sell from July 1996. (21 years ago now)
Before your internet and Done Deal the trip to the shop to look through the Buy and Sell to see what bikes were in it. Sold and bought a good few things out of that book. Just looking how many bike shops have gone out of business even here in the Wexford area there are James of Gorey and JR up in Ballymitty.
The ads still haven't changed in all these years:
"Honda NSR '92 Low Mileage, very fast, everything working, very fast & reliable, £950." ... [Read More]
Thanks to MarkTSpud for selling me his ferry ticket, I'm going to my first TT , Saturday 3rd to Saturday 10th.
Haven't got a scooby where I'm going to stay . I'll camp if I can't get anything or it's all mad money , but somewhere secure for wet kit would be better ...
Is Douglas best for the craic , or anywhere else ?
Any ideas appreciated.
Also will be riding up from Cork for the 0430 Belfast ferry Saturday morning if anyone's going that way ?
Bought this off Rob Zzr last week, gave it a little wash today and it came up very well for a bike with 50,000 miles on it
Haven't had a really decent spin on it yet but delighted so far,love the mid range https://flic.kr/s/aHskMRNHBj
Any good DIY tips for flaring a rivit link ( DID 520 ) securely without the tool ?
Bought a cheap breaker/riveter tool to do it for e 30.00 . It was the only one I could find for sale in Dublin ? . Anyway , it just about managed to break the old chain . But the pushing out pin bent like a banana .Will snap if used again I reckon.
When it came to flaring the rivits , the business end of the riveting pin appears to have collapsed from a cone shape to a flat one , deforming the shaft inside the threaded barrel . SNAP ! The barrel broke in half . White plastic like metal inside sprayed black on the outside. Made in China.
Hi guys and dolls,
Have the blackbird now a year or so with no probs so far ,
Just now it has started to rev very high 3.5 thou. When cold,it normally just goes to a little over idle when cold,
I wonder if any owners have had the same problem.
Took a decision a few years ago to "Improve" my '61 BSA A10, she was dumping oil if left standing for any period of time (a common problem with these yokes), but other than that she was fine, or so I thought, I dropped her in to John O'Regan to see if he could fit an SRM part that stops this, long story short, John gave me the bad news that there was about 4mm side play in the crank and would need to be reconditioned, that news along with the fact that the forks were rusting, as were the inside of the rims, the rear shocks were shot and the saddle was the incorrect type for the bike, I reckoned it was worth a full resto, the bike is an original Irish model with the brown book going back to the sixties with an old three letter, two number,Dublin plate, so I figured she was worth...

Ireland picked up some valuable points in Race 1 and 2 of the Philip Island Classic in Australia earlier today as both Paul Byrne and Derek Sheils claimed top 10 finishes. Road racer Derek Sheils acclimatized quickly to the elevated Australian track and finished ahead of multiple TT winner John McGuinness in both Race 1 and 2 on the Tom Dermody Suzuki XR69. Paul Byrne, brother of Irish Superbike racer Damien Byrne, bagged some important scores to leave Team Ireland in a healthy 3rd place in the team table with another days racing to come.
