I doing anything with the carbs Ivans jet kit is definately the way to go, forget dynojet, mine was so smooth all the way through once 'Ivanised'.While you are at it junk the AIS system too as it makes the plugs much easier to get to.

You can have a smart motorway and still have a hard shoulder, surely the variable speed limit is the smart bit which does reduce the stop/start queues as it slows some of the traffic before it gets there.Losing the hard shoulder is a crap idea for sure.

For a far reaching view I was tempted to pull bike out of the garage and lay on the floor beside it to get the moon in view, that's pretty far away.....

I went to a coastal restaurant and tried the seaweed earlier, it's crap! Made the skins go soggy and wouldn't light.

There you go a closer version, water towers are not the easiest thing to get in shot are they? (I had to stand in a ditch looking like a wierd predator to get the original)
I love the idea of the picture challenge, does anyone object if I blatently steal the rules and start the same on the TDM forum?Hey we all share the same clunky gearbox issues.....

I'd have thought being the major funder of the AZ vaccine and part of the requirement being "at cost" and easier to store in hot countries makes the UK pretty charitable in the first place.We should be free to pat ourselves on the back for that.

« on: 10 May 2020, 03:32:57 pm »
No, sold my 1000 last year after buying a TDM850, I'm loving the trailie like riding style of the TDM and getting used to the engine not screaming revs at me like a banshee, I find the TDM more fun on the B roads that the Fazer and the 270 degree crank makes a nice note through the delkevic exhaust.If I was to have another Fazer I'd go back to the 600 as I found it more fun to ride than the thou.I can't get page 2 to load either.

General / Hand sanitiser - alcahol free
« on: 29 March 2020, 08:48:10 pm »
  We got a load of hand sanitiser delivered at work the other day, it seems there's a lot about that is alcahol free using benzalkonium chloride as it's active ingredient.
 As soon as I heard alcahol free alarm bells started ringing so I got round to looking the stuff up today, it seems that although it claims to kill coronavirus and cites european centre for disease prevention and control the only mention I can find is relating to canine coronavirus, a related but different strain that is of no threat to us whatsoever, the american centre for disease control states the active ingredient as unreliable for covid19.
 If you are using this stuff check the ingredients and don't let it lull you into a false sense of security, it 'may' work on covid19 but there is no evidence that it will and washing your hands with soap will likely be far more effective, a little knowledge is indeed a dangerous thing!
 I can see a lot of folk using this stuff in place of washing hands, DON'T!
 And no your 80% proof vodka won't do it either as it's only 40% alcahol, you need at LEAST 60% to be effective.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Re: Air screws - in or out to lean
« on: 01 August 2019, 06:38:34 pm »
The mixture screws control fuel flow on the Fazer 1000, so out to richen, in to lean. :)

The paragraph titled 'Drill Out Mixture Screw Plugs' here is accurate and informative.  Explains the difference in mixture screw settings depending on whether the carbs have one or two of the pilot circuit bypass holes enlarged.

Thanks for that, now I'm back off holiday I should get around to this hopefully.

General / Old dogs and dodgy tickers.....
« on: 08 July 2019, 05:32:30 pm »
An odd one but if anyone on here has an old dog with a heart problem and uses vetmedin 5mg send me a message, I may be able to save you a few quid as I have some left over and can't bear to see a vet send them for incineration when a dog could make use of them.
