» Ordering parts: Yambits, Wemoto etc
Mar 13, 2021 - 3:12 PM - by Robbie N
Hi there, anybody know of EU equivalents of Yambits, Wemoto etc for ordering parts. Want to avoid delays due to customs etc. I checked Wemoto.ie but even then parts come from UK and I was warned of delays. Any suggestions?
Thanks.

Mar 13, 2021 - 10:21 AM - by Pumbaa the warthog
Well lads, I'm doing a photo book thingy for my mum's birthday later in the year and have been asking the extended family for pictures they may have in the attic, well anyway my cousin across the water sent me this one yesterday, I was floored, I never saw a photo of myself on my very first bike, a feckin Honda 90, brand new, bought in Carrolls bicycle shop in Tipp town in 1979, 600 was the price, thanks to the credit union.
Anyone else have a pic of their first bike?

» Insurance question
Mar 12, 2021 - 8:24 AM - by bandit0
The story is my brother lives in the US and always sorts me with one of his bikes when I'm over.
I'd like to do the same when he gets back but they won't allow me put him as a named driver on the insurance. This has never been a problem with the cage. He only has a US licence.

Anyone know of any work around for this?

Thanks all.

» stolen bike??
Mar 10, 2021 - 7:42 PM - by dublinjm
saw two skumbag lookin little fookers coming out of Dunsink Lane (Finglas end)on what looked like a stolen bike. no plate, or helmets. was in the cage so couldn't get a good look at the bike. but it looked from a distance like a Kawasaki green naked 600+( could be wrong). they turned off onto Rathoath Ave. by the time i got there they were gone. maybe storing the bike in Dunsink Lane. might be worth a look by the owner

» Oil Change
Mar 09, 2021 - 7:09 PM - by baseplate
Looking for opinions. Bike has been in storage for 5 months. Doing an oil change next week. Would I be better off just dropping the oil without starting up the bike. I've been told that over the last few months all the oil would have dropped to the sump and warming the engine to thin it out would of no advantage.

Mar 08, 2021 - 5:37 PM - by 2shea
Looking for some advice lads.

Just wondering what would be a realistic price to put these two bikes for sale for. I was looking for examples to go off but couldnt see any as they were all wrecked or had massive milage.


First I have a 2007 Honda Innova 125cc with about 1000km on the clock, it's basically a new bike with a GIVI top box.

The second bike is also a 2007. A Honda CBF250 with 1800km also basically new. One owner before me, the RSA. I dont know what they used it for but it wasnt used at all (bought from the RSA at auction in Naas back in November 2018)

It still has the barcode stickers underneath from the factory. Also Givi wind screen and Givi top box not in the picture. Looks like it's a new bike that you... [Read More]

Notice a slight weep on both shocks (cb 1300) which has been slowly getting worse. A new set is the guts of 400eur so was wondering if anyone know/recommend anywhere i can get then refurbished or rebuilt?
