» Early r6 gearbox
Feb 14, 2015 - 2:53 PM - by bmass
Quick introduction, I'm living in Canada and looking to get a bike having been off them for 2 years. Looking at a few 600s and a few early r6's in particular. I've read about the second gear issue on these ones, but wondering is there any way to test for it without driving it because there's still snow on the roads. I'm guessing there's not, so here's my question - if I can get the bike at a decent price, would people recommend it. I'm not shy of doing the work, but gearboxes are a bit scary to me.

Best result, bargain bike that runs nicely, and I get to learn about carbs.
Bad result, trailer it home and it jumps out of gear on my first spin, resulting in a couple of weeks work to replace gearbox parts.

My thinking for trying to buy now is that prices... [Read More]

Hi does anyone know where I could get a carbon sleeve for an end can repair. The can is an odd size so will need someone who can do custom sizes. I've priced getting it repaired but I'd buy a can for the cost of it and if I could get the sleeve kit id have no bother doing it myself.

Helping a friend in need of starting his bike.

Need help with a electrical diagram for the above.
It's a fuel injection model,can see that there's spark but not fuel spraying from the injector.
Bike was standing for more than 6 months,is it possible the fuel in the tank that degraded.
Engine was rebuild after a conrod bearing went bad and damaged the crank casings.

» Delkevic Exhaust - Fantastic!
Feb 13, 2015 - 2:01 AM - by siam rider
Ordered a Delkevic exhaust for my little CBR250.

Only 119 sterling - with 20 deducted for UK VAT as it was being sold outside the UK! So 99 quid sterling!

Passed UK Noise regulations, dyno for all their products on their website. Saves almost 5kg from the stock anchor that was previously on it. The build quality is fantastic. The sound is great - making the single-cylinder CBR250 sound great is no mean feat. All the youtube/forum reviews for the consider this as the best pipe for the CBR250. the little single cylinder doesn't sound so nice when screaming through a Yoshimura. And at a fantastic price compared to Yoshi, Akrapovic, Leo Vince etc.

Closed/open throttle is smoother, it revs nicer, climbs much faster in the top-end, engine braking... [Read More]

Have been asked the value of a 1984 BMW R65 and was wonder could anyone out there in biker land be able to give me an idea. Its a clean bike in very good nick with a good bit of work done to it like clutch, fork seals, king & queen seat and unrated rear shocks. Looks well in fairness but not the type of bike I would normally go for but if the price was right I may take it just don't want to over pay for it.

» Parking Fine.
Feb 12, 2015 - 4:12 PM - by Neidas

Ive been parking in front of my school for nearly 2 years now, bikers before for nearly 4, and no problems have arisen. Today as I walked out of my second last class I saw a fella with a high-viz helmet out of the gates of my school, taking pictures and writing fines to students cars that have parked in front of the school. While the crowd from inside the gates were shouting abuse at the guy, he finished up taking his snaps and clipping fines to wipers, he rode off happily. Unfortunately, my bike was parked perpendicular to the kerb between the cars.

Quickly running to my bike after last class had finished I was expecting a big fat 40 euro fine to be lodged in between the tank and seat, or pinched somewhere by the clocks, or even clamped at the front... [Read More]

» IOM TT - Cameron Donald to ride Valvoline Padgett's 600 at TT
Feb 12, 2015 - 7:40 AM - by Admin
Australian TT hero, Cameron Donald will line up in the colours of the Valvoline Racing by Padgetts Motorcycles team at the 2015 Isle of Man TT Races, fuelled by Monster Energy, contesting the two Monster Energy Supersport Races.

With John McGuinness unable to continue his association with the Batley-based squad, team principal Clive Padgett has moved quickly to fill the void and securing the services of Donald alongside regular team member Bruce Anstey ensures they’ll again be a strong contender for race wins in the two four-lap races.

Joining the Valvoline Racing by Padgetts Motorcycles team also means Donald and Anstey will be reunited as team-mates having spent three years together at the TAS Suzuki team between 2008 and 2010.

You can cycle through the whole thing as with the actual bike. Pretty amusing and a noticeably better interface than any other bike I've been on. The HP4 was dodge and KTM should be ashamed of the interface on the 1190/1290!

The right wheel held down opens up full menu and if you tap this when scrolling it selects options

It's on a ZV Plate,but it's an irish bike from day 1,delivered to a crowd called Huet bros. in bachelors walk,dublin in 1953.
Makes me think it was perhaps bought for competition use,and not road registered at the time?
