General / Niken or not?
« on: 29 October 2018, 03:41:05 PM »
Would you buy a Yamaha Niken?

For me it is a big no, £13500 for a 263 kilo MT09 with an extra wheel, I don't care how much confidence you get in pushing the front end, its not a motorcycle, its a tricycle.

General / Best way to lube chain when bike is on sidestand?
« on: 08 June 2018, 04:59:20 PM »
As the title says what is the best way to lube the chain when you only have a sidestand?
I have no paddock stands and do not want to fit a Scottoiler or similiar.

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Lorenzo.
« on: 05 June 2018, 06:37:52 PM »
Lorenzo is about to sign a two year deal with  Honda to be "team mates " with Marquez, I did not expect that.
Apparently Zarco turned Honda down to go to KTM, hope that works out well for him.

General / Embarassing foc up
« on: 25 March 2018, 08:25:03 PM »
Okay so bought a MT09 and very happy with it but I have made a bit of a cock up.
I have managed to jam the seat, I have removed it once before when I checked the bike over and I think I did not locate it correctly when putting it back on.  :o .[size=78%]    I turn the key and lift and pull backwards like you are meant to but it only moves about 5mm then it is solid. [/size]
I have tried thumping it and wiggling a piece of metal rod about underneath the gap in vain hope but the bugger is stuck.
Any ideas or help would be much appreciated.

I have tried to post this on the MT09 forum but even though I am a member when I try to post on the forum it just keeps telling me I have not done the image capture correctly, after 5 goes I gave up

General / Keeping bike kit in garage.
« on: 19 May 2017, 04:06:12 PM »
I am thinking about keeping my bike kit in the garage.
It is one of those precast concrete ones and what concerns me is condensation and damp.
Does anyone else keep their kit in a garage and if so what do you store it in?
Bear in mind I am a Scot living in Yorkshire, being careful with my money is not a trait it is a vocation. :)

General / Black Circles
« on: 13 October 2016, 02:18:49 PM »
I am looking to get 4 new tyres for  the Peugeot boxer  that my son and I share, Black Circles seems to be cheapest and plenty of choice. Has anyone used them in the past, does their system work? Unsure about using them as they seem to use local tyre fitters that sell the same tyres but at a higher price than Black Circles!

General / Eurocarparts.

Just ordered loads of stuff for the 4 family cars and vans , saved over £100.

General / We are becoming an endangered species!
« on: 22 July 2016, 04:05:21 PM »
Every time I go to somewhere that bikers tend to gather at, be it a show or cafe, they all seem to be as old or older than me. Other week at Fridaythorpe with a mate he commented on it then, and today I had an early morning run to the coast and called in again at Fridaythorpe on the way back at about 10.30am. There were about 10 bikes there and all the riders were of a mature age,  I know there are younger riders out there but they seem to  be few and far between, extinction seems to be looming.

General / Back protector.
« on: 07 April 2016, 08:33:55 PM »
I always use a back protector and have had a few different Knox over the years but they have always been the type that you wear separately, with shoulder straps and and a strap round the waist.
I am looking to get one that will fit in the back of my Alpinestars leather jacket in the existing pocket, any recomendations welcome :)

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Black frame paint
« on: 11 August 2015, 12:37:35 PM »
Washing the bike today I noticed that some of the black paint has rubbed off the swingarm on my gen2 right down to the bare alloy, probably caused by my boot rubbing on it.
Anyone had the same problem and if so what did you use to touch it up? The cheaper the better :)
Also any tips on what to use to polish the black frame up with, it always looks dull.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / LED rear light.
« on: 19 July 2015, 01:08:31 PM »
I have got a 2nd hand led rear light to fit to my FZ1, it is made by Powerbronze but I have no fitting instructions so I am unsure as to the correct wiring.
I have tried searching on the net for some but I have drawn a blank, cannot find any on the Powerbronze website either.
There are 3 wires in the centre, black ,blue and yellow .
One yellow wire on the right hand side.
One blue wire on the left hand side.
So five wires in total.
I am not even sure if it is just a rear light or light plus indicators :o
Does anyone have the instructions for the light that they could email me or put them up on here?
Or a photo of the wiring on the bike if you have one fitted.
Also can anyone confirm if it is a light plus indicators or just a light?
Do I need to fit a resistor as it is an led?
