» Import duties from Oz?
May 07, 2021 - 7:20 PM - by Sleazy Rider
Just wondering if anybody has brought in secondhand parts from Australia and have they been clobbered with charges.

Just seen a set of original and almost perfect discs for my bike that I fancy but at €320 + 80 p+p its pricey enough already and I don't want to get extra on top.......

I am assuming secondhand parts are still liable or might I be lucky?

It arrived early this morning, thanks to Teds Trucking



A 1978 Gs1000, the first year version from across the Atlantic, spoke wheels were standard over there for that year, it's in decent condition for it's age, the side panels are missing but I will find some, I always wanted one of these and now I do.

» Garden/Bike shed
Apr 29, 2021 - 8:45 PM - by 2shea
Well lads and ladies.

Any recommendations for a good garden shed? The place is finally dry enough and building is kicking off again.

I was thinking of going with a steel tech shed 8x10 or maybe 10x10 with double doors on a concrete base, run some electricity to it as well as putting an extra zone on the house alarm out there too. The guy that fitted our system said he'd just add an extra wireless sensor out there when we got one which is great.

I'm based around naas so there's also Clane sheds out here too. Anyone have any experience with them?


Main thing for me I suppose is not to go too small. I want it big enough to fit 2 big adv bikes comfortably and space for my riding gear, boots and lids. 10x10 with a centre... [Read More]

Can't remember the last time I saw so many bikes out and about. Perfect conditions today. 400km done. Beer time now.
Seen a lot of older (80s & early 90s) bikes around.
If we got a summer like today, I'd be happy.

Can't find an answer online anywhere on this crap - brining in a bike from the Isle of Man (Same as UK) hopefully

I got a quote of €94 for VRT (Bike is 1996) but how do i find out how much vat has to be paid? Bike has 2500 miles on it.

Would like to find out how much they are going to ride me for it and whether i need vaseline

Got this from Revenue too.....

» Where to get aerosol paint
Apr 21, 2021 - 6:19 PM - by sub zero
Hows things lads? I have a set of track fairings that I want to tidy up and was just wondering if anyone can recommend somewhere I can get cellulose aerosol paint? I tried to purchase some from a place in the UK but when I went to checkout turns out they wont post to Ireland. The only place I can think of is Halfords but maybe ye can suggest a better place to get some from. Thanks!

» Frame repair
Apr 19, 2021 - 8:22 PM - by padraic2271
I recently bought a project bike that was dropped at some point and the lug on the frame for the steering damper took a knock. The alloy around the lug is pushed in.

There are no marks or scratches on the frame, it looks like with the right skills the dent could be removed like the paintless repairs can be done on metal panels. The frame has an anodised finish so I want to avoid painting it.

I sent photos to a company that specialise in frame repairs in the UK and they reckon they can repair easily, but with brexit, customs etc I'd rather get repaired in Ireland if possible, does anyone know of anyone in Ireland that might be able to take a look?

» Best way to remove rear caliper piston
Apr 14, 2021 - 8:09 AM - by strontium_dog
Back brake is binding badly on my ZRX so I decided I'd have a look. One of the pistons doesn't want to move at all. It's the one that you can't get at as the fluid enters from the other side. I suppose I need to somehow stop the side that moves so that all the pressure goes to the stuck piston. Just wondering on ideas on the best way to do that?

Thanks.

» Anybody know their EBC brake pad compounds ?
Apr 11, 2021 - 1:53 PM - by -alan-
Have a set of EBC pads all round on the Triumph - FA347HH it says on the back.
Plenty of meat on them yet, and not contaminated as far as I can see.

I have a new set of EBC FA409 pads here - described as 'High performance Organic brake Pads', whatever that means.

Never been happy with the brakes on it. Bled them a couple of times, and they're not spongy - but still not as much bite as I thought they would have.

Any value changing those 347 pads to the 409s - or are they likely to be much of a muchness ?
