» Dunlop Qualifier D209: opinions?
Feb 17, 2018 - 7:03 PM - by fast3r
Hi guys, I'm going to pick up my new bike (CBR 600 RR '09) next month from the dealer, who is fitting it with new Dunlop Qualifier (D209) tyres.

Has anyone used the above extensively and can give me an opinion?
I always rode bikes in a country where the weather is much better (Italy), so our choice of tyres for a SS bike are very different. Haven't really ever used anything more "touring" than Metzeler M3, which were great for travelling but kind of suffered on grip when going a little bit more sporty (especially in summer with 30į).

Given the weather in Ireland, obviously, wouldn't really consider a Diablo Rosso Corsa or similar my first choice. I'd like to know that the D209 are decent in the rain or wet roads.

Thanks in... [Read More]

What gearing should be used on mondellos national and international circuits. I have a k9 gsxr600 and am currently using 14/46. Is it more personal preference because I hear a lot of lads using different setups.

» Pannier Inner bags - On a budget
Feb 16, 2018 - 9:40 AM - by rebelBusa
Just an FYI really I suppose.

I've been looking for inner bags for my 42L Givi panniers lately. The Givi inner bags are all up around Ä50+ each, and I'm on a budget. I wanted something waterproof and didn't want to be lugging the hard cases around on the ferry.

So I spotted these 50L Q-bag waterproof roll-bags on for only 10. Delivered this morning and they're perfect, Ä32 with delivery for 2 of them. They don't have a shoulder strap but I have 2 straps from old gear bags at home that will work perfect.
Anyway, just a suggestion if you're touring on a budget like me and don't want to fork out the big bucks for the flashy brandname stuff.

Looking for recommendations of routes in Northern Spain & Portugal

Have already done the Picos & surrounding areas so not particularly interested

in them.

Concentrating more Northwestern Spain & down into Portugal, mostly interested

in scenic routes off the main roads but not real offroad stuff.

No interest in rallies so dont even mention Faro or Chaves

» Shared bike storage Malahide Portmarnock Baldoyle
Feb 14, 2018 - 9:03 AM - by DAK
Iíve no garage at the house and no way bike will fit down the side so Iíve been looking for somewhere keep it secure.

Ideally Malahide Portmarnock Baldoyle Kinsealy area so itís not too far away. Iíve priced one place, secure with 24 hr access etc. Itís pricey at Ä180 per month but would definitely hold 2 maybe 3 bikes depending on what they are. Mine is DL650 for ref.

If anyone is interested in sharing costs PM me as I need to do something soon. At the moment I have it stored in work but thatís miles away and there has been a van spotted checking out bike locks in Malahide area so don't fancy leaving it out front all the time.

Alternatively if someone has something to offer as option PM also.

» Key / Barrell problem
Feb 13, 2018 - 9:48 PM - by goose81
My key stopped working well a while ago, took a good bit of fiddling to get the bike steering lock off and then some jiggling to start. I got some blank keys cut about 3 months ago and they worked perfectly but now I'm getting the same thing.

Is there anything I can do bar buying new lock barrels? It's like the pins in the barrels have worn and that's why it's taking so much effort.

Hoping there is a cheaper option than new barrels

Hi guys

would appreciate some help, had my bike on change for a day due to a flat battery, battery took a charge, removed charge and went to start her, ignition powered up but when i hit the starter i got a "BANG" and that was the end of that. so when i turn on the ignition i am now getting nothing.

i have checked the battery and its showing good condition, i assumed i blew a relay but looking at the HAYNES manual i see there is a PGM F1 30amp fuse, see attached, anyone have any idea where she lives?

thanks in advance
