I have great fun with them when they ring.Last one was threatening to cut off my phone if I did not pay the bill there and then. Told her to go ahead cut me off, I don't care. Silence then click  :lol

I have had a couple of similar ones.

That's serious cash. My local body shop wont do anywhere near as nice a job, but for a single colour they quote £50 a panel (tank or fairing count as one panel)

it looks like a nice clean bike but you need to tell us where you are, what age the bike is and the price.

Backed off to 90K and saw the car with no one in it and then saw two officers inside in the middle of a field talking to a farmer on his tractor.

If it was a single caridgeway road in France, you were lucky :pokefun

The limit is 80kmh and French plod will do you at 81kmh

Personally I have never used beam deflectors on my bikes in France but if you want to, that's fine. A piece of black tape is all that is needed to stop the "kick-up" to the left and is what I used on cars years ago.

I do. I have been on holiday for a couple of weeks so haven't done anything. Will be advertising the bike on eBay etc soon though.

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Fuel Tank capacity
« on: 04 September 2019, 12:37:34 PM »
The amount of fuel carried makes little difference. If you always know you fill up to the bottom of the filler tube, and always fill up when the light comes on, you will know your range unless you are looking to risk it and take the tank to fully empty.
For the 1999 bike, the capacity, listed by Yamaha, is 18 litres. This is from empty to the bottom of the filler spout. For the later bikes, it is 21 litres. Both of these numbers have a theoretical 3 litres left when the fuel light comes on.

let us know how you get on with the MOT using the lightbar as they are clamping down on the distance between indicators now.

I'm in France now with a bike and do come over here regularly. Whats needed.....

V5 (log book)
Insurance Certificate
Spare bulbs
Lots of cash to pay fines (if you dont pay attention to the speed limits)
GB Sticker (or EU number plate)

Whats not needed....
Breathalyser (Still a legal requirement but fine is €0 for not having one. They dont even sell them in France anymore so ignore what Halfords and the ferry companies tell you)
Reflective helmet stickers (only new helmets bought in France need these)
Anything other then earplugs in your ears (you can get a fine for listening to music etc)
Satnav that shows speed camera locations

What you should use...
Headlight beam benders (I have never used them)

Wonder what will happen to the blade moron.

Depends who "deals" with him. One of us wouldnt be as lenient as the shandy drinking magistrates we seem to have,

I fitted delkaevic downpipes to my last one and will get some for my current one.
This is the end ca I fitted. Good sound without being offensive to the neighbours
