» Engine warning on clutch pull
Jan 31, 2019 - 12:19 PM - by FatherTed
This just started recently - on a Yamaha MT07.

When cold and I move off, as soon as I pull the clutch in to change to second the entire bike cuts out, engine lights etc. When I release the clutch it (sometimes) comes back on and starts to fire up, but not always successful. It's as if the ignition key was turned off when the clutch was pulled!

I have also noticed that sometimes when I pull the clutch in the engine warning light (small yellow one) comes on and goes off again when I let the clutch out.

It is very intermittent and doesn't always happen. Seems to happen about once or twice a week now. But very scary on a dark country road!
The bike is an MT07.

Any idea what to start looking for?

» MV Agusta F4 750
Jan 30, 2019 - 6:19 PM - by Harley Riders Love A Reacharound
Picked up this a few weeks back and Airmax asked me to stick a few better pics up, its a 2002 MV F4 750 done in the EICMA show colours from the factory. i must do a bit more research as apparently there was only 50 made in this livery. Big box of standard parts as well as lots of carbon, rearsets and a lovely set of pipes with the race ECU. its a 2002 with 10k miles. Rubber was very outdated so I stuck a set of Michelin Power RS on it, totally transformed it, fantastic tire actually. Really nice to ride, I was very surprised. i hadnt intended on keeping it too long but I fell in love with the looks and sound. Build quality is fantastic, you could look at it for ages. All in all, very different but in a great way!

» Best place to buy assorted bolts
Jan 30, 2019 - 1:12 PM - by strontium_dog
Just wondering where would be the best place (in Dub) to buy a box of assorted stainless bolts. Just a mish mash of various sizes and length for odd jobs.

It came about when a bolt vibrated loose off the belly pan of my KTM and I couldn't get hold of a suitable replacement.

Cheers Lads

» Category D Write Off
Jan 29, 2019 - 5:19 PM - by Chris.D R33
Looking for some advice from you learned people

Long story short, I was involved in an accident and came off the bike. Driver and 3rd parties insurance has admitted full liability. I left my bike into garage for estimate and came in at 3,400. The 3rd parties assessor has valued my bike at 4,250. As a result the two options I have been given are 1. write the bike off as cat D and receive a check for value of bike or 2. keep bike and take check for 2,300. The damage is just cosmetic and I would like to keep the bike.

My question is if I keep the bike does the write off get logged and flagged on any history checks going forward?... [Read More]

Howdy lads and ladies..

Just sticking my head in to say hello after a couple of years of a break. Finally getting the blade back on the Rd with the help of a good buddy as unfortunately it has fallen in to a bit of a shite after being laid up for the last 2 or three years.

May be looking for a few 918 parts here and there if anyone has anything laying about and will throw an eye on the for sale & freebie forums when I get a chance.

Anyway.. it's great to be back saying hello and hopefully I haven't missed too much craic.

I'm sure it won't take long for me to get locked in the pen.

Hope your all doing well.

Jan 26, 2019 - 1:28 PM - by Chickenhawk
I'm looking a a diagnosis of this in my left hand with ligament surgery tbc after a nerve conductive test.

Has anyone gone through this procedure and more importantly are you back riding the bike?

I can't ride the cbr for longer than 20 mins without a lot of pain. I'm blaming the clutch on the whore for doing the damage.

Just wondering if I'll be able to ride it again after.

Cheers and thanks

» Re-map or not?
Jan 25, 2019 - 4:45 PM - by PADDYOT

Looking for some advice. I bought a Bodis decat pipe for the bike.
When buying it I assumed that I'll have to get it re-mapped.
I've since read that with the Bodis, no re-map is needed, due to the fact that it's not a 'straight through' pipe but a bendy one, which builds back pressure. Then of course there was other folks that scoffed this theory and insisted that a re-map was needed. Some folks swore blind that it 'made all the difference'. So I emailed Bodis and they said:

"Hi Paddy.

With our exhausts and the original exhaust lambda-results on test-bench had been fine.

We did not measure any other exhaust.
