Not a bad turn out for a spin today. was around the 10 degree mark. Took in a good chunk of north county dublin. Got to try out the new Arai flat cap.

Stopped to buy petrol from Achmed in texaco and tried out some compressed air in the back tyre.

be a nice build up to other routes such as the ring of kerry and the R132 next year

Oct 21, 2022 - 7:03 PM - by manbearpig
Hi Lads,

Anyone have a bike or bikes that they still pine over? My was a Honda blackbird. Carb version - dyno jet kit, twin scorpion exhausts . . . Was a "gift" to myself for passing the full test.

Came to it after a bandit 650 so it felt like a rocket in comparison. Had it pinned once coming from Mullingar to Kinnegad and the helmet was being pulled off me head.

Sometimes look at Donedeal and search for it but is say she's deffo retired by now.

Oct 06, 2022 - 1:56 PM - by KTMkenny
Want to get the youngster a bike.

I think a motox bike is not going to work to start him.

I think a clutch will be too much for him .

Was thinking of those Chinese bike. Local dealer carries the VMX pit bikes which are the same as Stomp according to him.

Are they junk? Any advise?

» New clutch
Oct 05, 2022 - 11:26 AM - by Kilko
Iam a bit lost and confused. The clutch on my 2016 Yamaha mt07 was slipping and the lever would not return out fully. I was clutching at straws and replaced the cable and it's not catching anywhere but it made no difference. I got an ebc brakes friction plate kit and the spring kit. All the friction plates appears the same in this kit. I took out the old kit and the inner and outer plates are different as in the manual. I fitted the new plates after soaking overnight and the lever is still the same. Has anyone come across this problem before. Help appreciated

» Vintage Bike - Numbers not matching on logbook ?
Oct 05, 2022 - 8:08 AM - by -alan-

Been on the hunt for a particular bike for a while. Found a reasonable one, but the engine on it seems to have been replaced, and the engine number is different than what's on the log-book.

I know it's not ideal, and a bargaining point - but was wondering whether it has potential to cause problems down the line with the thing ?

Any insight or experience much appreciated.

» The Honda Hornet Returns
Oct 04, 2022 - 6:59 PM - by Scythe
So Honda have brought the Hornet back but now its a twin instead of an in-line four.
Not the same at all for me but its to take on the MT07.
Looks like their CB500 to me or the 650 style they discontinued in 2017.

» Yamaha crank bearing sizes
Oct 04, 2022 - 10:53 AM - by seano
Firstly is it possible to grind a Yamaha crank/resurrect one, it's a 2cr Mt10, engine is the same as the R1 but its got a different crank. or is it a case you just have to buy another one because of coatings etc. The fact theres no oversize bearings from yamaha that I can find is probably all the answer I need. I've attached some pictures, the scoring isn't deep but it would still need some element of grinding. All of the big ends have some element of scoring bar one, main journals are all perfect.

Yamaha just give colour codes for the bearings and no sizes so I don't even know what tolerances I have to play with so cant really go into a machine shop and ask. I don't fancy paying over 200 euro for a full set to find the sizes, to then find out the crank is useless, surely... [Read More]

» Cheap road bike suitable for track days?
Oct 03, 2022 - 10:27 AM - by manbearpig
Hi Men,

Wanted to start a thread about reasonably priced bikes that would be suitable for both track and road.

Been juggling the idea of getting a track bike - but ive no van/trailer etc and it just starts to get messy with the idea of going full on track bike.

Anyone recommendations of a decent track bike - I would have a 600/750 in mind.

Ive done 1 track day in Mondello (Srad 750) and a trackday in Anglesea (Duke 1098) and really had a ball.
