This is one for he Ducati owners I guess.... I recently picked up a 749s and the clutch is really heavy. My wrist is abit fucked from a bike accident in 2008(metal plate/pin) so need to sort something out, its fine on the open road but its painful in traffic...
Ive been looking online and it looks like replacing the slave cylinder seems to be the way to go to help this. So my question is, does anyone here have experience with this and did yee go with the 28mm or the 30mm and which is better... Also did yee go with STM or with another manufacturer (STM seems to be the most popular from what I can see online)
Anyone know how to tell if a Brit bike is wired positive or negative earth if it has no battery and is missing half its wiring....
Buddy picked up a 50's matchless and is looking to buy a 6v electronic ignition kit for the mag,but they are specific to positive OR negative earth.
The Lucas regulator has a red wire leading from the 'E' terminal to ground at the frame,then onwards to whats left of the loom....so I'm supposing its positive earth....? Should be as far as I can tell....any ideas?
Looking to get a can for the gsxr off these guys soon enough, just wondering has anyone ever bought stuff off them or used them before? Seem to have good kit, working out a tad pricey now with the price of sterling however!
Get booking ,rang just few mins ago , day could be cancelled , cause lack of numbers , they decide later I was told. Forecast good ,so hopefully more book it & it goes ahead .on national track which is little bit cheaper 😳
Is there anywhere around the country that you can set up camp for the night and light a small fire, put on a bbq etc? I did a trip around ireland last year and came to the conclusion that campsites are shit. You can't light a campfire and have a few cans in peace in any of them. Kinda takes the fun out of it if you're looking to have a bitta craic with a few mates
A friend of mine built a Tricati in the 1960s. He sold it sometime later but would really like to get his hands on it again. It is a Ducati frame with a triumph 500cc engine. The reg number is 9864 WZ.
We would appreciate any information about it.
Maybe someone has the bike or knows someone who had the bike. Any information at all would be greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance
Would anybody know is it possible to get a spare key cut for an "Abus" disc lock.
I tried a few places including " Autokey" on the Naas road but no luck..
I know when the locks are bougbt new they come with some sort of code that you can give to the supplier , but i don't have this..
Had new Pilot Road 4s fitted on the Versys last week. Have done about 70 miles on them so far and just noticed that at around 80 mph and upwards a vibration sets in that definitely wasn't there before. (the Versys is vibey enough as it is) It seems to get progressively worse as speed increases over 80 but under that speed, all seems well.
I figured the balancing was off so brought it back to the fitter. He checked it only visually, weights, bead etc and said that he was sure he had balanced them correctly. He continued to say that occasionally tyres need to be "run in" for a bit and I could return next week if things hadn't improved.
I've never experienced this before and am wondering am I just being passed off? I've been a loyal customer for some years... [Read More]
Woolsey is running an ART Academy in a month's time at Kirkistown Circuit the day before the NW200. It is a great opportunity to learn from one of the best racers Ireland has ever had. Woolsey is friendly and easy to deal with. The Circuit is great for all skill and experience levels. A day to remember.
Lads looking to replace the hideous stock indicators on the R1. Appreciate advise on the best way to connect the aftermarket ones. See pic attached. The grey connectors are the stock indicator connectors (right connector on pic is to the indicator). The little gold wire ends are the after market connectors.
I was away for 4-5 months with work and stuff, and did not get a chance to use my bike. Came back bike wont start - dead battery. replaced. now when i turn the key to ON, self test kicks in, but fuel pump doesn't. I also see red key flashing on dashboard (in ON position). Tried both black keys. The problem is that sometimes after 10-15 min of ON & OFF, it does start, can hear fuel pump. which is really confusing?! Once i get it going, most of the time is fine until next day.
I'm thinking of buying a gsr 750, found out today that it's restricted. Not sure if it's factory restricted or otherwise. The seller has agreed to return the bike to full power. My question relates to whether or not this invalidates any manafacturesrs warantee if this work is not carried out by registered dealer. Bike has one year of manafacturesrs warantee remaining.
Ok managed to drill out the bolts.
Got the caliper separated.
Next job is trying to get the pistons out.
Gobshite here didn't push them out fully before removing them from the bike.
Have been trying to get the farthest out piston out.
Using a mini vice grips with a old bike tube.
The fucker will not move. Flat out refusing to budge.
Cheers for all the help.

Skerries rider Michael Sweeney will contest the KDM Cookstown 100 later this month aboard Kawasaki and Yamaha machinery.
2014 saw the Skerries rider take Man of the Meeting at quite a few National Road Races and the former Manx Grand Prix winner will again be onboard the MJR Kawasaki, Trak Blast Yamaha and Kiely Heating Supertwin Kawasaki for the County Tyrone event.

There seem to be loads for cages but I cant see any online for bikes. I would have thought this would be a good idea - instead of having to drop your bike in and pick it up the next day, a guy who can call out and service or upgrade your bike at your home or work. Anyone know of any like this?
It's always a worry. No matter how good YA think your bike is ( the f..KERS always seem to find somthing WRONG...).
So tomorrow afternoon I will be like an expectant father outside the maternity room.
One thing you don't have to bother about at home.
Trouble over here is that if you let your MOT lapse YOU ARENT COVERD FOR BREAKDOWN RECOVERY. ( I found that out to my cost.....OH !!!! Sirs MOT seems to have expired... This invalidates your RAC European breakdown cover.)
F..king computer linked DVLA bastards...
