General / Help what happens now
« on: 16 February 2020, 02:15:27 PM »
I went to pick my bike up after the accident repairs yesterday.
They had just returned from the road test .
More bad news there is a loud knocking from the left side of the engine low down .
There was no knocking before the accident and no external damage to the engine .
So what happens now as the other drivers insurance company had agreed repairs and they where on the limit of it being a writeoff.

General / Winter bike gear.
« on: 04 December 2019, 08:31:08 AM »
What do you use  in this cold weather ?
I have been using a keis premium heated sleeveless jacket run off the bike battery.
Halvarsons Merino wool base layer under the Keis.
If its really cold I use my Rukka down jacket on top of these .
Rukka Nivala Jacket ,and pants(with down liner) .
RTS Gortex boots with  long Merino socks,Dainese Gortex travel Gloves .
Shoei GT Air 2 Helmet .
This outfit has kept me warm and dry over the Alps and 3 British winters.
It did cost a lot but with a 6 year w'tee on the Rukka and Lifetime on Gortex  from leaking I guess its a good investment.
And they say a warm ridder is a safe rider!

Fazer8 / FZ8 / Centre Stand .
« on: 26 November 2019, 02:57:30 PM »
I fitted the  Yamaha centre stand  kit today.
All went well other than the spring fitting .
A couple of points worth noting,
[size=78%]the stand is very close to the chain when up and also quite stiff at the moment.The spring does not return it to the up position.[/size]
I rigged up a ratchet strap and wire hook to get the spring on . :'(
