Some of you may know of Mick the Marshall.
He was one of the great characters of road racing.
Some of you may even have been the reason for Micks rant, 'GET OFF THE ROAD'

However Mick passed away on Wednesday. He had no family. It would be great to give him a decent send off

» ZZR 1400 review.
Aug 04, 2016 - 8:56 PM - by oretom
power modes: for me, a gimmick, just use the throttle accordingly, i have used full power mode since day 1.

Brakes: excellent, takes a lot of hard work pushing it around to get to point of finding some fade, they really are very good stoppers

abs: works fine, but only by experiment, never had to rely on it

Traction Control: 3 modes, 1 is very sensitive, you will find yourself filling the dashmeter easily, its suprising that it detects wheel speed differences when you dont,
wet roads, heavy rain, cross a manhole cover and power will be cut drastically( i dont mean by simply crossing it) light up the rear wheel in wet and it will stop very abruptly, which can catch you out if you are not expecting it, which you wont be, unless you... [Read More]

» Looking for advice RD125
Aug 02, 2016 - 8:56 PM - by Jimmypox31
Hi, I have a 1985 Rd125 and I cant get anyone who will take the time to get it going again. This bike has been lying up dry stored for 5 years and I'm really keen on getting it going as it has sentimental value ( First bike I ever drove) and now its been given to me as a present. The engine is turning but no power. Need to make or buy a new wiring loom. Can anyone recommend a mechanic who can help or advice on how to do it myself. Even if not restored and just back driving again. Thanks

» Looking for something to stop my leaky shed roof
Aug 02, 2016 - 8:29 AM - by eirehead
Hey guys. I have a 13' x 10' steel shed and the roof is leaking in about 6 different places. Taking the roof off and refitting it with silicone sealant would be a last resort. Is there any roll of transparent material I can either lay on top of the roof or attach under the roof to direct the wet stuff out to the sides? It needs to be transparent as there's a semi-transparent section in the roof to let light in. Or any other ideas? Thanks.

» Put Diptheane in Bike and now PROBLEMS !
Aug 01, 2016 - 8:30 PM - by mgaul96
Hi, So I have a 97 Honda Magna 250 VTWIN, First bike so I'm still learning the ropes with these great machines. Anyways I was having trouble with my bike starting ie she would start but stall out several times before i could get going with choke open etc... I used logical reasoning and decided maybe the carbs were dirty so i bought a bottle of Diptheane and added it to the tank. Bike ran lovely after i added it and took her for a 100km spin. However when i got home and let her sit overnight the following day It would not start at all. She turns over and i get the occasional bang from the cylinders but she wont run for me... Any ideas on what i can do to get her going again ?

Click the image to open in full size.

So 1500miles later I've decided she's too quiet for my liking though I love the growl of the engine and that oh so sweet induction noise but in all fairness the exhaust sounds like an asthmatic hairdryer on steroids.

Looking at the black carbon fiber Dominator, Delkevic and GPR exhaust at the moment, like to know what others have and a bit of feedback. How's fueling/throttle response after and what length to go for? Any pics?

Thanks in advance.

Hi just a bit of tongue in cheek here as what makes of bike model bikes make us Irish as bikers ?

» Coming out. Any ideas?
Jul 31, 2016 - 5:24 PM - by Robbiesv
Bike cuts out when coming to a stop. No hesitating just cuts out (not all the time but a lot). I first taught it was just dirty carbs but they have just got cleaned and jetted and carb rebuild kits were used.
Idle is set to 1600. Choke plungers have new o rings as well.
Bike in question is a SV650.

Any ideas?

Jul 31, 2016 - 3:17 PM - by choppermann
I've been on a mooch lately for older kit that I like
and I found this yoke not too far from me.
It's a 1990 cop bike that was stored in a warehouse for years and forgotten about and so has only 11,000 miles on it.
Comes with all the sirens and flashing lights and all that crap.
not sure yet what to do with it but leaning towards finding a few more cool yokes and sending them to Dublin and punt them on.
Cheap as chips (geddit?)
