» Half-face lid request
Mar 29, 2019 - 9:46 PM - by ars
I'm after getting face surgery. I drove to the hospital on the bike and now find I can't get the full-face lid down over my nose to get home. I can get a lift but don't want to leave the bike behind. I was wondering if there was anyone around the south Dublin south city area with an old half face lid lying around that they'd lend me for around a week?

» Suzuki GSX1400 Fork Rebuild Questions.
Mar 29, 2019 - 3:07 PM - by pedrosixfour
Hi all.

Well my buddy ended up getting the GSX1400 after.

Damn good value at the end of the day I think. Runs and goes well, brakes are all in good order and doesn't look to have been utterly fucked with. It just seems to have been forgotten about, but corrosion doesn't seem to have taken hold of the tank, or the bones of it either.

He has a fresh set of Metzelers for it when the oily bits are finished with and, being a self-employed crash repair specialist, he has all the equipment & know-how he needs to get the bike looking just how he wants it.

He's pleased with himself, to say the least!

The only real issue the bike had was a sorry front end. Pitted stanchions, leaking seals and obvious signs that the... [Read More]

» Insurance Scam or Not?
Mar 29, 2019 - 12:14 PM - by TrueBlue_

Last year my renewal policy from Carole Nash said my bike was garaged. I had previously clearly told them it was locked on the front driveway. They apologised and said it was an error.

For this year's renewal, I updated them to say it is now garaged. This time they have noted the bike as having and Spyball 6507 alarm. I never heard of such alarm and the bike definitely does not have one.

Has anybody else experienced them slipping things into the policy? Things that might void the policy if the bike was stolen!!

Price is the best part about it - $13000 for the 'Standard' version. Close to $20k for the top end model. Looks nice too.

» Hayabusa Transmission Rebuild
Mar 28, 2019 - 2:46 PM - by rebelBusa
Hi lads,
Just thought I'd share the pics of the gearbox rebuild the I completed over the winter. Who knows, if someone else has the problem in the future maybe a search will help them with this post.

Last summer my K1 Busa started to skip in second gear on heavy acceleration and I diagnosed it as being the dreaded 2nd gear transmission problem. There's about 90k Km on her. And apparently they all go eventually cos 2nd gear in the Busa is the only gear that isn't undercut.

It took about a week of evenings to get the engine out and disassembled. I got the father-in-law to weld up a stand for me, so I could work on the engine upsidedown (easiest way to get at the transmission). Investigation showed that 2nd gear cog was infact worn, and that caused it... [Read More]

» Fueling issue
Mar 27, 2019 - 7:45 PM - by Honda boi
So lads have had a problem with the gsx 1400.
Had her running fine the other day.
Wasn't 100% and would idle for a minute then cut out.
Next day fit new spark plug, turn key CHEC on the display.
Kill switch wasn't on. Found the ignition fuse had blown,so changed that,nope as soon as I turn the key pop again.
After fiddling around with Cables and connectors, when I turn the key the pump relay would just constantly click. So I thought it was the relay,ordered one online,stuck it in,nope still clicking
Noticed when I disconnected the fuel pump it stopped.
So stripped the fuel pump down, stuck 12 volts on it and was making a noise but nothing was... [Read More]

» Mandatory Speed Limiters in 2 years !
Mar 27, 2019 - 5:31 PM - by Admin
All vehicles could be fitted with devices that stop them going over 70mph, under new EU road safety measures which aim to cut deaths from road accidents by a third.

Speed limiting technology looks set to become mandatory for all vehicles sold in Europe from 2022, after new rules were provisionally agreed by the EU.

Campaigners welcomed the move, saying it would save thousands of lives.

Road safety charity Brake called it a "landmark day", but the AA said "a little speed" helped with overtaking or joining motorways.

» Michael Dunlop: BSB men have raised bar at the TT but don't write me off yet
Mar 27, 2019 - 10:20 AM - by Admin
Michael Dunlop says he may be going into this year’s Isle of Man TT as something of an underdog but has warned his rivals ‘I’ve a lot more left in the tank’. Dunlop moved onto 18 victories last year following a Superbike, Supersport and Lightweight treble, but much of the spotlight centred on the record lap times set by Senior TT winner Peter Hickman and Dean Harrison.

» Honda CB 750, new exhaust system
Mar 27, 2019 - 10:14 AM - by breathnach
Hi Folks,
Looking for some advice please. Being offered a 98 Honda Cb seven fifty F2 with 32k on the clock from a friend for 1000. Bike is running ok but cosmetically is a little rough. Issue is that it needs a new exhaust system. His mechanic said it could be at about 500euro (part only depending on where he could source it second hand). He also says some of the bolts to remove the exhaust look like they would be a real pain to remove so i can image labour might be expensive.
Anyone come across this before. Should i buy or walk away and keep looking.

Lads, anyone here in Cork, close to Carrigaline if possible able to do a few welds for me. Stick weld will do the finest as it is only on a frame and it's nothing too important. It's all tacked and all so not much time in it. A few euros in it for ya and all

» So i had a accident....what to do next?
Mar 26, 2019 - 2:43 PM - by Doomdom
Few days ago I was hit by a car and I was taken to hospital by ambulance.
Accident wasn't my fault and it was caused by other driver.
I called my insurance company and they sounded nice but in the end i was basically told that because i have only TPFT insurance they are not going to do anything and if i want claim any damage its up to me to chase down other driver or to get a solicitor do it for me.
Problem is I don't have any info about driver that hit me. Garda was on scene of accident but due to data protection law they refused to give me any info about him or about his insurance.
I really don't know what to do now. I didn't wanted to deal with solicitors but it looks like i don't have any other option.
