folks i just restored a sp1 00 model,when she is standing and ticking over i can rev it no problem,but when i take off she take forever to redline,and i cant even get to 6th gear as theres no power,even changing from 1st to second it dies until i have the revs right up near the limit,i dont recall fecking anything up,sounds like fuel to air as when ticking over she revs perfect ?
A few shots from a great day out at Faugheen. Hope they got enough interest and made enough money to do it all again next year, I'll certainly be back.
I'll put some more up on the website as I go along, thanks for looking
Have a look at this EBAY seller's stock of quality brand MRA SCREENS, ordering one myself...just waiting on postage rate to ireland....example yamaha R1 2004-6 ONLY 25 euro ...you could be lucky. honda fireblade 929 30 euro another example... ..
In order to remove the cam chain from a 2005 Honda Shadow vt1100 v-twin engine it is necessary to remove the spark plug tube that runs through the middle of the chain.
This tube is removed by unscrewing it using a very large hex-bit, or as the Honda Service manual says, a special tool. The special tool is called a Fork Tube Holder Attachment apparently, tool number KA50100. I couldn't seem to find a dealer with this in stock, so after 2 months of waiting, I got impatient. I found a nut on a piece of plumbing which seemed to be the right size to fit this tube and used this to get the job done.
If you have a shadow, and no one else can help you, maybe you need; the cheap-o team ... [Read More]
Today around 20.00 seen 3 traveler pri#ks bothering an owner of shiny BM GS 141reg with the usual bull questions like 'how many gears it got', 'how fast it goes', 'is your leather suit real, can i touch it'...
There was a new VFR1200 as well.
Be safe, they might come back.
I warned the girl in the reception, she promised to keep an eye.
They got arrested a few days ago :) on the M50 haha
Unrelated charges but again acting the complete idiots they are on the M50 (reckless driving) they also had an arm length of other offenses logged against them as in - Reckless driving, driving without tax and so on and so on.
They were pulled over on the M50 and arrested on the spot :)
Here is the original post with video (I wasn't sure If I was allowed to "bumb" an old threat)
Manxman Dan Kneen has continued his impressive form at the Irish national road races by clinching a hat-trick of wins at the Faugheen 50 road races.
Kneen won the Grand Final at the 2.2-mile County Tipperary circuit by 3.752 seconds from Derek Sheils after eight laps, with Michael Sweeney in third.
The Cookstown BE Racing rider then won the Open Superbike event by 5.7 seconds from Sheils and Sweeney.
The Braddan man finished 1.8 seconds in front of Derek McGee in the Supersport.
Kneen's performances in the Grand Final and Open Superbike events led to him being crowned Irish Superbike road racing champion.
Mullingar man McGee secured the overall 600cc championship thanks to his runner-up place in that class, in which Sweeney was... [Read More]
I have an Alpinestars textile jacket that I quite like. Now in fairness it's a good few years old but all the zips etc are in good nick and it hasn't been down the road. It's one of the summer ones with a detachable lining.
Now I know it's not not designed for heavy weather but it used be ok for keeping out the rain but now it just comes straight through it. The waterproofing it had seemed to go after I was caught out in a mental shower of rain one afternoon. I'm assuming whatever stuff was on it got blasted off.
Can anything be done with them or is it a fair weather only jacket now?

Does anyone know where you rent a bike for a few days? A friend of mine is going to be visiting Ireland from Canada next march and is very eager to sample our lovely twisty roads on the west coast during his stay. He is a Harley man ,(lets not judge) so he would like to get something of that type if possible.
If anyone knows a good place to rent or has an idea of cost etc.. Any info is appreciated.
I've bought a Bandit 650, it has a Givi screen fitted to it and while fitting the screen, one of the previous owners removed the small cowl/fairing in front of the clocks (pic below), any idea where I might get one?
The bike initially came from the UK with a few owners in between, so chasing down the owner who removed it isnt really an option. Cheers
Broke down today a few miles outside off Durrow Co Killkenny on my way to Nenagh today . Rang Adelaid Insurance followed the automated instructions . Options were not availble to me in the republic so , I rang back and used the english option , got a person on the phone she told me I rang the wrong number but put me through to a Irish representative to look after me . He hung up on me or disconected me by mistake Maybe. I rang a third time on my mobile off course with credit fast running out . Got a diffrent lad this time who was very helpfull to me . He told me they had no record off me on the database and could not help me as I was not covered by them. What he did do for me was put me in contact with a Irish breakdown service . Who charged me E160.00 to call out to see me and... [Read More]
