I put Buell pegs on the one I had and Genmar risers.

I like the look of that!

there's cheap and there's cheap. Part worns can be good value BUT you don't know the history of them. True, when you buy a second hand car you have the same concern but I would rather put a mid range tyre on and miss out on the meal out or whatever than put part worns on.


Most part worns come from Germany etc where the legal limit is 3mm and it is law to have winter tyres in wintery conditions.


Its pretty obvious when you go to fit them, if they are blistered, bulge etc, then reject them. Thats what I do.

I got some part worn continentals on the Mondeo and they're far better than the budget things that came off, cost me £40.  I've had part worns on a 300bhp rwd car before and had no problems, even on track.


I have part worns on the back of my E55, much better than any cheap stuff .

Good bike, Cam tensioners can make em rattle but a guy on cbrforum.com made a manual one for his, Some times adjusting the balance shaft can make them smoother and quieter.


Thats what I read too, mine seems to be ok, its rattly for 30 seconds then quiets down. Must have been done as its done 86,000 miles.

Yeah mechanically its ok, did the 100 mile journey back without issues. Just needs service items, tyres, brake seals etc. Then I will get it tested and taxed and work on the cosmetics!

Buts It's not another fazer. Even though I was looking at some.

It's a 1990 cbr1000 f. Needs a bloody lot of work, but it was £150!

Means I'll be able to keep up with you lot on the ride outs!

I would put some good condition part worns on. I put 2 new pirelli p zero 285/35/18 for £55 all in fitted and balanced.

They had 3.8mm of tread so 50% worn.

I'd call it 2.5 turns before stopping -  in which case, I need to stop being such a perfectionist!  :)

When you say rub, do you mean that they actually slow the wheel down.

If you can spin the wheel in the air and it rotates more than twice under its own intertia, then I would say its fine.

It does sound nice. Sounds like you want it back!


I would love it as a third bike, but having moved to richmond, I know cant even see my bike from my flat so I would be far too worried.

I removed some posts, which I don't like to do because it's best if people look after themselves.

It's obvious that people are getting frustrated how how about one of you go round to evolution's place and check out the job, take the pictures and do a more detailed write-up. Just because evolution has done the discovery doesn't mean he is good at communicating his find.

So who's volunteering?


Think i'll pass on that one thanks  :lol

Lol!

I beg to differ, all you've done is show a picture of a beam of light.
This is a forum designed to give people detailed help, and although you've taken the time to show us the end result, most people, especially ones very new to biking or with zero or very minimal hands on experience would've preferred to see some photo's of the fitment instead, but you seem to be avoiding questions by giving daft answers.  :wall


No need to beg


I have gave very straight easy to understand details and  what are you trying to suggest when you write AVOIDING QUESTIONS.


Maybe if you understood english better you would be able to understand the very simple way that i have fitted these leds so that even a child could fit them. :foc


Im sorry, but I diasgree. I have no idea, along with most of the other people on this thread, of what you have actually done.

What is the beam pattern like? Any chance of a picture of the actual pattern?

You can pick up a Pre diversion XJ600 or diversion XJ600 for around 400 quid.

It was listed on ebay from JAX Motorcycles for £1795.


The cheeky bugger even told me the headlights where shit and needed changing, bastard!


It was reg y297 nll. Hope the person who has bought it is on here, got a great deal!


SP exhaust, cvieth ultraguage. led brake lights and led indicator boards, heated grips, alarm.


Lovely bike! I do miss it! (considering the beamer has already had a new battery, regulator and stator, left heated grip and gear position sensor, all in 1 month)...

I have applied to beta test these. I doubt I will hear back.

I'm sure if they do go into production that they will be £1000 +

Ditto, but I live & hope!!  :lol

Lol! Same!

This site covers them http://www.qwerf.com/greenlaning/?county=kent

Three of them are permit holders only and gated. The police do patrol the byways so beware.

I'm useless at navigating the lanes and leave it to others to lead! but the one at Luddlesdown is a permit one.


Excellent thanks!
