Keyless entry, stop start systems and electric handbrakes in cars.

Was going to change the car but cannot get a one without all that crap. :grumble

The only one of them I have on my Hyundai i40 is start/stop and that doesn't work so all good haha

I'm sorry but EVERY weight problem is to do with gluttony.
[...]
If you have a medical issue that means your body only burns 500 calories a day then only eat 500, not 3000.

And I bet your solution to people being alcoholics is "well stop, drinking!" as if it was that simplistic.

For example, when we eat, the brain is supposed to get a signal saying "ok, we're full", but some people simply do not get that signal, wheras other people, due to stress or depression etc, "comfort eat" because it creates "feel-good" chemicals.

Just telling someone to "eat less" is short-sighted and unhelpful and fails to deal with possible underlying issues.

It may be "short sighted" but the fact remains that it works. You've only gotta watch these 'biggest loser' programs or 'a year to save my life' to see that once ya make the fat fucks do some exercise and stop shovelling their faces with shit.... They actually lose weight.... amazing isn't it?
And I've no doubt that forcing alcoholics to go cold turkey would be the simple solution too.
But no let's carry on giving them money to fund their habit, just incase they have to suffer without it. Let the obese people eat what they want and blame it on 'issues' just in case they have their feeling hurt. And while we're at it we can continue to pay for their 'help' with public money and see how long it takes for any of them to get better... i may be being cynical but I'm gonna guess never

Anyone that impersonates a medical professional is deeply disturbed in my humble opinion.

You'll have to let the wife know next time she gets her nurses outfit out 😉

guess not all weight issue are from gluttony.

I'm sorry but EVERY weight problem is to do with gluttony. I can't stand all those lard arse fuckers that claim to have a slow metabolism or 'thyroid issues'
Your body can't make fat from nowhere. The only way to get to these sickening sizes is to eat your way there.
If you have a medical issue that means your body only burns 500 calories a day then only eat 500, not 3000.
I worked as a gym instructor for a while in my early twenties and the amount of them is get in crying about their size, crying while I trained them then smiling while they sat and ate 3 big Mac meals afterwards!

Why aren't different sizes of clothing priced according to size? After all a small coat uses less material and must be slightly quicker to produce than a xxxl coat.
This could solve the "obesity problem" if the price difference made people think " I am not paying that price, foc it, I will lose a couple of stone and buy the cheaper size", :D

To be fair I think you'd just more likely see fat people in either tighter or less clothes haha

I replaced mine with supposedly 'brighter ones I found online but they aren't any different.  Im pretty sure they arent on when the main light is on anyway so kind of pointless. They're more of a parking light.

I am considering removing then replacing them with l.e.d D.R.Ls as I think that would make more sense 🤔

Ahh okay, little clearer with the photos, it's those wing clips I was concerned about snapping off, just wondered if there was a knack to separating them rather than go in with a flat blade screwdriver, I'll have a closer look later.
Cheers

To be honest I wouldn't think you'd snap them, they are fairly thick. A flat head screwdriver would do the job perfectly

If you are referring to removing them from the number plate holder then you have to look for the black plastic oval clip that sits inside the rim of the rubber mount. It's a bit hard to explain but I used a socket to loosen the nut down the stem then wiggled it around a bit until I could loosen the clip out.

Just switched to Bikesure (wish I hadn’t).
Bikesure has been slated on another forum for its' poor customer service. "Barry From Bikesure" has even registered as a member on that forum to tout for business but his customer service skills are zero too. I wouldn't touch Bikesure with a shitty stick.

I've used bikesure for years now but admittedly I've never had to deal with them other than to renew.
Who do you guys use these days? Are there any favourites or is it just cheapest goes?

« on: 04 February 2018, 10:15:47 PM »
I recently removed the headers from my gen 2 and they took a fair amount of effort to dislodge.
I recommend a rubber mallet, shouting, swearing and a good dose of brute force. It will work eventually.
There's probably just years worth of crap sticking them in place

« on: 03 February 2018, 05:55:39 PM »
Bugger, I hate click bait. £140 I spent on there.
Anyway, as for your question,  exhausts are funny things and on modern bikes back pressure and pipe length is extremely important. If i remove my db killer I lose a ton of torque low down but gain a lot above 7k.
The question I would ask is how much time, effort, money and testing do you think they have invested in these pipes in order for them to work properly on your bike.
From what I can see the silencers are generic and sold for many makes and models. The titanium ones are pretty though and I guess they're cheap enough to take a punt.

The torque difference is only relative to the size of the bore, removing the baffle makes a bigger hole thus letting out more air and affecting the way your bike runs. Doesn't matter which brand of exhaust you use, it'd be the same with any of them.

I think people get hung up on brands. I've had most of them from akraprovic all the way down to delkavic and even unbranded cheaper ones, they are all essentially the same and any bike will run optimally once tuned to the exhaust on it. All these ones that advertise power gains don't mention that you need to tune the bike to get them.

As for them not doing any design/research etc that's because the Chinese just copy everything. Same reason they are cheap, they don't have to put any money into R&D. They just work off someone else's blueprints.

If your only riding on the road then any of these exhaust will be fine and next to nobody will know it's a 'fake' so your street cred will remain intact haha

I'd personally buy one via eBay, that way at least your afforded some kind of protection if it doesn't show up. You can still get them on there for a similar price. You may even find some that are dispatched from UK warehouses

« on: 02 February 2018, 10:42:59 PM »
Just read the Fz1 article and saw that the bike they nodded had pretty much all the same engine mods as mine ( even had the same paint scheme 🤗)  but there's was dyno'd at 153 bhp and mine was last done at 146bhp. The only difference they had was the dynojet ignition module. Do they really make that much of a power gain?
Don't worry I'm not rushing out to buy one, 146rwhp is plenty for me, I'm just curious 🤔


I don't know about that, but atmospheric conditions and even different dynos can give different results.

Yeah I suppose there is that and I know the one I use reads more accurate than most. Guy Martin uses it for his bikes and his Honda team have even used it a few times to calibrate his race bike.
I have heard that the one down the road from me reads a few bhp higher

Excuse my ignorance but what is the point of a gear indicator my ears and rev counter tell me if I need to change up or down.

That's the way I've always seen it haha I've never had one on a bike and the ones I've test ride with them have never added much to the ride
