That Blue tyre reminds me of a guy on youtube who was demonstrating a new Tyre paint. But it isn't to paint lettering on the side of the tyre, you actually DO paint the centre of the wheel. Then ride down the road, the paint rubs off the surface, but you are left with a painted tyre tread pattern.

That Blue tyre reminds me of a guy on youtube who was demonstrating a new Tyre paint. But it isn't to paint lettering on the side of the tyre, you actually DO paint the centre of the wheel. Then ride down the road, the paint rubs off the surface, but you are left with a painted tyre tread pattern.

Not cool. :rolleyes :foc  (also dangerous, as water wont be channelled away properly through the tread).



Seen something similar on the internet somewhere.

Together with the Toprak/Lowes swap and Scott replacing Bautista, next season can't come soon enough for me.

Give WSB a go next season fazerscotty, it has all the ingredients of being a very exciting series.
Title: Re: Whoever posts last is best
Post by: coffee on 11 December 2019, 12:22:33 am
I like the lot,the thing for me with WSB is 2 races and the 10 lap flyer,same with BSB you get 2 sometimes 3 races whereas Moto GP is just the one,I know you've got Motos 2&3 but still only 1 GP,then again if I was forced to watch only 1, Moto GP would be my favourite by far. :thumbup
Title: Re: Whoever posts last is best
Post by: robbo on 11 December 2019, 09:32:02 am
When Doohan ruled the roost, I think the premier class took a bit a backseat and WSB became the most watched series. Fogarty had obviously a lot to do with that, although Russell, Whit and Edwards were my favourites. BSB has had years that's encouraged large crowds as the grid has been very competitive. Last season was good with all eyes on Redding, whereas Bautista in WSB looked like he'd romp it, but didn't. Having competitive grids is the key, as with foregone conclusions everyone is wondering who's going to be second, like with Marquez and not only this year. For me his talent is off the scale, but personalitywise I like mavericks like Jack Miller. I agree though, if you could only watch one class, it would be MotoGP in it's current format. I doubt it when it goes electric, I'll just watch reruns of past races then. :lol

Yep fazerscotty, you are quite correct regarding German Autobahns. If you're a member of ADAC, which is an AA equivalent, they will bring fuel out to you, however if the cops get to you first the fine ranges between 30 and 105 euros, depending on the length of time you've been there and also the level of danger you have caused. I suppose all countries have their fair share of iffy drivers, and riders come to that.

I always found it odd, that whilst The Who were featured heavily in Quadrophenia (did they have something to do with the script writing?) and on the back of Mods parka's, that they were a chuffin great rock group.

Pete Townshend was one of the four screenplay writers. I've often wondered if they financed the film as the production company was The Who Films Ltd. Despite the many glaring errors in the film, I've always found it a good watch as it successfully captured the mood of the time.

If someone genuinely likes music, they'll like what they hear irrespective of what group of people identify with that music. Born in 1946, rock'n'roll was my natural music genre, until via older kids I discovered Radio Luxembourg, which opened up a whole new music experience, made greater by the advent of pirate radio a few years later. Can't stand jazz or reggae though :lol

We’re booked with BA later in the year. They’ve already published that they won’t be using Gatwick in future, which is a must for us. Expecting a struggle to get cash back, but used a credit card, so worse case scenario, the bank can sort it out. Getting the deposit back from the cattery could be a problem possibly. Have to wait for the govt. announcement regarding travel for bookings later in the year. Be happy just to have a day out on the bike at the moment. :lol

When we do get over, or are able to safely handle this pandemic, there'll be a change in the high street, with companies no longer trading, as well as changes to the way we're used to doing things. If airlines were forced to maintain social distancing, then seat prices will need to be around 3 times dearer. In yesterdays paper, there was an article regarding the govt laying on a repatriation flight, might have been from Turkey. Instead of being grateful for being flown home, they moaned about having to sit next to someone. Nowt as strange as folk :lol .

Pizza is round because traditionally you "spin" the dough to stretch it.

Boxes are square because they're easier to make that way.

It's cut in triangles because cutting across the diameter of a circle is the easiest way to divide it up evenly.

If you understand this, you'll understand how sexist (and ignorant) the original author of that was being...
Title: Re: Whoever posts last is best
Post by: Grahamm on 16 September 2020, 12:27:13 pm
And ”Squaring the circle”. What’s that all about?

It's a mathematical conundrum, involving creating a square that has the same area as a circle.

Since the area of a circle is measured by pi * r^2 and pi is an irrational number (it never ends) it's impossible to precisely measure the area of a circle.

It's a metaphor for other impossible tasks...

The trouble with that, is that by the time you’re sober you’ve forgotten what the idea was. Well, certainly true in my case, but then that could be just an age thing.

Mine was definitely overdue for a wash and brush up, which I attempted this afternoon only to get caught in a cloudburst. It was a tad difficult leathering her off in the confines of a very cramped garage, but the compressor came in handy to administer a well executed, ahem, blow job. The garage doors were open at the time, God knows what the neighbours must have thought. I do hope all this effort was appreciated :lol .

My bad, mentioning Christmas. I should have known better. Money’s tight this year. I was just going to throw a sheet over her, and maybe take a few of her bits for a trip down the powder coasters. If I’m feeling flush, maybe get her belly pan resprayed, providing I can find someone reliable, certainly no one with a red nose. :)

Get a Shark vacuum cleaner. They've got a great feature that stops loose hair on the carpet from getting tangled around the brush

Also they have a neat "lift away" feature that lets you detatch the central vacuum section out of the handle/ wheels so you can use it as a mini hand-held cleaner too.

We've currently got a Henry and a Sebo for use in the house . I've got an Electrolux in the garage to Hoover up any dropped food and snacks and to keep the car semi tidy. We've had Dysons for years but they aren't made the way they used to be - there is a distinct lack of sucking power going on.

I am - as long as sprouts are off the menu. Now that we're into lockdown, I've no doubt we'll be eating all kinds of things that have been found at the back of the cupboard - with the expected results. The Husky seems to be getting better - it's that or she's fed up with getting the blame all the time. :lol :lol

As far as I’m aware there is no UK distributor, and has to be ordered directly from Ivan’s Rockland County Motorcycles in Greenville S.Carolina. The only website I know of is www.ivansperformanceproducts.com (http://www.ivansperformanceproducts.com) which has all the info you’d need. Maybe if you pm’d Falcon, he may have some alternative info re:European distributors. Good luck :thumbup

Plenty of good finishes have been achieved using cans. Like most things, it's all down to the boring bit.....preparation. At least you've got some heat, which is key.

It's nice to get the garage all squared away neat and tidy. That doesn't happen often for me as I'm too much of a hoarder. My project has hit the buffers, waiting for a tool to remove the clutch cover bearing which needs to be removed prior to powder coating. The footrest hangers will be a bit of a gamble getting powder coated, due to the rubber bushes that might survive the oven heat. The firm I'm using have done them before and got away with it. Beginning to wish I hadn't started. :'( :'( :lol

Crash helmets certainly do take up a lot of space. Being a bit of a hoarder, I find it very difficult to aim stuff in the skip. Was the same with motorbikes. Couldn't sell anything because of sentimental value, until I got to the point of every one needing something. A tyre here a chain a there etc. So got rid of three of them and bought the Fazer. The rest as they say, is history. Still got a spare room full of crash helmets though :lol .

“Needs a track record”. Exactly. I remember, a good few years ago, a racer, an Arai fan, receiving a paid sponsorship to wear a little known make that no other racers were wearing. Having no knowledge of how it would perform, and not wanting to be a celebrity guinea pig, he logoed an Arai with the other brands signature logo. He felt safe and the sponsor got their tv exposure. Only problem would have been anyone wanting to buy that model of helmet, which obviously didn’t exist. Personal recommendation tends to go a long way with me.

I read an article earlier, where somebody had bought a "Lectek?" exhaust system. U.K. based company, but the product had been produced in China, on the cheap, then shipped halfway round the world to be sold as "British".  :eek

No doubt on eBay you’ll be able to find a Lextek copy for a third of the price, that’s come out of the same factory. A pal bought an Akra copy with the link pipe, hanger and exhaust springs for £37 a year ago from China. It took about a month to be delivered, but is still going strong showing little signs of ageing. When you know it’s Chinese and is cheap, it’s sometimes worth the risk, because if it’s no good it’s in the bin. Rukka is always associated with Scandinavia, people believing that’s where it’s made. Their latest suit, the Kingsley, is £2,399.98 RRP. It does have a long guarantee, 5years I think, but it’s made in China. Imagine what the mark-up is on that :eek

The point I was making is, buying directly from China, as you say, is very much getting what you pay for, and agree there's no chance of recompense if faulty etc. It's just very disappointing, after making a researched decision to buy a named make quality item, you find out it's made in China. Admittedly there will be a guarantee on the item, but the stigma of Made in China certainly takes the wind out of your sails, when you thought the item was made in the UK/Germany/USA etc.

That's where firms like Klarna come into play. "How much", says the customer, "Yes it is expensive, but comes with a 5 year guarantee and we can sign you up for interest free payments". Before you know it you've got the boots and gloves to go with it, and you're making some serious monthly payments. Believe it or not, Motolegends sell shed loads of high priced riding gear like this, and easy finance makes it possible.

Facilities like Klarna are fine if you do the maths and don't get too carried away. A few years back I used a similar company to get some Halvarsson (poor mans Rukka) trousers that a pal had recommended. They were £400, which was way too much for my budget, but £40 deposit and £30 a month for a year, got me something I could never have afforded otherwise, and avoided the buy crap, buy twice scenario.

For years, I bought my waterproofs from a Farmers supply shop. Two piece, with pockets in the jacket. They were brilliant in the rain (obviously!) and only cost about £6 each time they needed replacing.

When you’re on a tight budget it’s surprising what can be managed. If you’ve got to ride in the rain without waterproof boots, a couple of carrier bags, not the ones with holes in, and a few elastic bands to hold them in place, before putting your boots on. Waterproof boots sorted :lol . Had to do that on a particularly wet TT in the ‘90’s. Then along came Gore Tex to make life a lot easier, although more of a threat to the wallet.

A long time ago, in a galaxy very close, I had a winter job in a quarry. All of us had carrier bags inside our boots, everyday, irrespective of weather.
No trench foot reported!

I've always got my waterproof stuff from a good outdoor supplier. Reasonable quality, does the job, at a fraction of the price of some of the trade names above.


I've found its sometimes an advantage to be a short arse (sorry, vertically challenged). Often find good quality gear in the sales rack at dealers, just because its a small size and they've not managed to sell it during the season. I picked up a brilliant leather jacket some years ago, I looked at it in the rack and decided that £299 for a jacket was way too much. The wife was with me that day, and a few minutes later, she walked over to me with the jacket. "Try this on" she said. "**** off" I replied, "I'm not paying that for a jacket". Turns out it was £29.90. Still got it and it still looks superb. In the sale rack because it was unsold for a while. I guess my brain couldn't accept that such a garment could be sold for such a low price, so represented the price to my brain at what I expected to see.

Agree, it must be handy not needing to buy a regular size, as bargains can certainly be had, sadly not by me. I’ve a pal who got a short legged Rukka suit from a stand at the Birmingham bike show, just before closing on the last day. It was one less suit for the dealer to carry on the long walk out to the van as they were packing up. The suit fitted him perfectly, you’d have thought it was tailor made.

It's asking for British taxpayers to bail it out of financial trouble - but it's still putting € buy the billions into another infrastructure scheme elsewhere in Europe and still wants to pay-out to share holders.

It’s a catch 22 situation. When I worked I had plenty of projects on the back burner that I could afford to work on but had no time. Within six weeks of retiring I wondered where I found the time to go to work, but with reduced income had little chance of seeing out the projects :'(

Since I last rode it in September '20, I've fitted progressive fork springs, had a blood clot removed from my leg and given the Thou a bit of a spruce up (new clutch and throttle cables, oil & filters and carbs ultrasonically cleaned), so I'm not sure what to expect.

Well your health is the priority, everything else is metal and plastic. Hope you’re now fit and well and ready to enjoy your revitalised Fazer. I suppose there’s no way of changing the throttle cables without removing the carbs, as would like to replace mine as a precautionary measure.

Changed my cables purely by chance - I'd taken the carbs out to clean them and noticed one of the cables was frayed. Best to change it before it breaks at the worst time...........

Being self-employed, I've now made sure I have work booked on the next three or four Fridays..........
I bet I get busted on that one  :eek :eek :eek
Nice :thumbup , like your style. However, that means there'll be no POETS day for you then.(Piss off early, tomorrow's Saturday) :lol


Haha lol. No there will still be a Poets day EVERY FRIDAY. "SHIT THAT TRAFFICS BAD!"

I think my lack of Watership Down knowledge is no doubt due to a large age gap between us. According to google, the film was released in 1978. I'd have been battling a 10% mortgage interest rate, rising to 17% a few years later, so a cartoon about rabbits would definetely have not been on my radar :lol .

You can say that again regarding vets - our Rottie, has just been ill. Had to combine the services of two vets practices to get to the bottom of it. Hate to think how much that's going to come too.

What annoys me is if you’re on some kind of benefit, you just rock up at your local Blue Cross, have a shed load of surgery performed on your pet, Chuck £20 in the donations box……happy days.
Last year our cat came home with damage to his tail, apparently the term is “gloving”. The bill was £700 to have the tip of his tail removed. I’ll never get a newer bike at this rate :lol

We had a Vizla/Labrador who liked socks. £650.00 to extract a sock from his stomach (and that was a few years ago). When he became ill and died (of something completely unrelated) the total (including cremation) was over £2000.00.
These incidents (and many others) give me ideal reasons to work when the grandkids show up.  :lol :lol :lol

Well that week or so soon flew by. I guess the old adage of “Time flies when you’re having fun”, is true to a certain degree. :)

The panniers were overkill, only containing spares, extra tools, cables, oil etc. I figured if I took them they wouldn't need opening, whereas I'd be tempting fate if I'd left that stuff at home. Most of the others had fairly new bikes, so just had to pack clothes and waterproofs. Very pleased how the Fazer went :thumbup

That’s very true, but I can’t see why a company like Putoline for example, would want to risk tarnishing their brand, by entering a product market, if the product isn’t up to scratch. If you have been disappointed with it, you’re hardly likely to choose them specifically for anything else, be it oil, chain lube etc. However, you can’t beat personal experience, it beats the ad men every time. :thumbup

Is the air box mod applicable to the ‘slip on’ kit?
Title: Re: Whoever posts last is best
Post by: robbo on 24 November 2021, 11:06:29 pm
I hadn’t noticed that fazerscotty has gone for the slip on kit, which has smaller main jets and different needles compared to the full monty kit. The full monty benefits from mods to the air box and carb rubbers, but needs a free flowing exhaust to work properly, whereas the slip on would be a benefit even using a stock silencer, in my opinion.

I've fitted a full Black Widow system already. Going to remove that for cleaning purposes, replace the gaskets etc and to make sure I have NO leaks on the exhaust side of things.

Had a quick look on Ivan’s site and both kits are available for the same price. It might be worth having a read up, unless you’ve already done that, as it would seem the airbox mod is not necessary with the slip on kit, and in fact could be detrimental to performance. Something to do with airbox flow being matched to the needle profiles. I’m sure you’ll do an ace job whatever you decide. :thumbup

In real world motorcycling I wouldn’t have thought there was a great deal of difference. The full monty would give a top end rush if you were giving it the berries, and how often that opportunity arises must depend on the quality of local roads. Only a side by side roll on would give you a definitive answer. When Mike was fitting these kits, the difference in price was negligible. The full monty was more time consuming, so therefore more expensive. I’d hazard a guess that more folks went for the full monty, however, you have the option of using a stock silencer if you wish, with little or no detriment to your performance gain.

I've been putting off a precautionary throttle cable change for quite a while, as it looks a bit of a mare of a job. Been making a few notes from various "how to's" including of course Mike and Pat's procedures. In order to gain as much space between the airbox and carbs prior to removal, is it possible to withdraw the intake rubbers into the airbox if the filter was removed. I know you've got a fair idea how to tackle  carb removal from the cable change you did a while back.

I can't remember moving the filter. All I did was remove the battery, loosen the airbox and slide it back towards the number plate (and then tighten the bolts). That gave me enough room to remove the carbs etc.
Changing the cables isn't actually as bad as some make out - I'm glad I did mine and I'm glad I went for Slinkies.
Not sure when I'm going to get around to tackling mine - currently in the office preparing estimates for a job in Hungary!

Oh well, time for you to get the carbs off then. I’m trying to get a bit more info regarding pushing the airbox boots into the airbox to create more space. Everything’s undone, just waiting for the info as don’t want to risk mullering anything, and as I’ve got plenty of time it would make sense if it makes carb removal/replacement easier.

This little job, in fact any job, big or small on the Thou, is getting further and further away.
Her car developed an electrical fault - I think I've sorted that now, to discover my Chrysler 300 has sprung an oil leak! Following some research, I've discovered that to fix that its a two day job for me - and £££££££'s for a local garage.
Gasket set ordered. I'm going to find this interesting - I cannot remember if I've ever taken apart a V6 before! Had a V12 cylinder head off a Merlin once!

Oh boy. Not the time of the year for a car project. Don’t suppose you can put it off until it’s milder as you do big mileages in the Chrysler. Did a fair bit of work on my old Mustang V8 years ago, but that was with the engine out of the car, making it a lot more straightforward. If I lived nearer I’d give you a hand. Very best of luck, it will no doubt be a piece of cake for a man of your calibre. :)

Haven't started that yet. I have however, welded and beefed up my ramp extenders ready for the up and coming car servicing season.
Then the welder broke - it's not been brilliant for a while, the overtemp thingy would keep popping and the sheath in the hose (MIG) is broken and would snag the wire feed. The damn things only 30 Years old!
So that went in the bin and I bought a new welder this morning. I feel better - this retail therapy has something going for it  :lol

The quality is not so good nowadays - I heard that Snap-On went around buying up tool manufacturers, putting their label on the tools etc, however the quality is not as good as it should be for the price paid.
And then there's the battle with the vans regarding warranty. Some of the dealers don't want to know. They just want to sell, sell and sell some more.
Title: Re: Whoever posts last is best

I suppose in general the quality of long established products starts to tail off when the bean counters get involved. The tool choices at very reasonable prices, aimed mainly at the diyer are numerous nowadays, and some of them possibly are sold under Snap ON’s Blue Point banner, if they still have that range. I should imagine having needed top notch reliable tools in a professional capacity, you’ve noticed first hand, the decline in quality and longevity of a range of tool items besides Snap On. Nothing’s made to last I suppose, sadly.

I'm pretty lucky in that I'm not using the tools as much as I used too - so having spent out earlier in my career, I can now relax in the knowledge that what I have, will more than likely see me through. Any new kit is generally sourced from whoever has it in stock. I even have an Aldi set of metric stubby spanners. Not going to get used very often, so I made that choice to save a few quid. (They are actually quite good!)
I've got spanners & sockets etc in metric, A/F, B.S.F./Whitworth & B.A. Had them for 30+ years and yes, they still get used. I suppose the majority of any new tool purchases are the specialist stuff for the cars Fazer  :lol . Although, I have just spent best part of £100 on a crankshaft seal tool for a Lycoming aircraft engine!

Title: Re: Whoever posts last is best

I too only bought my first set of JIS screwdrivers within the last 5 years, adding some 1/4" drive JIS bits for the Snap On ratchet driver. All those years of moaning about chocolate Japanese phillips headed screws, when all that was needed was the proper screwdriver :lol . Aldi, Lidl and tool firms like Bergen all do a good job at diy level and beyond in some cases. Sadly all my Whit, AF, BSF and BA, are now confined to a large metal toolbox under the workbench. No doubt destined for the scrapyard when I'm pushing up daisies :lol .

I think you're right. The way things are moving, you wont be allowed to alter/modify/adjust etc anything on bikes or motor cars. It will all be sealed units, have to be taken to dealers, replacement parts having to be programmed in to be accepted by the vehicle. Mechanics will become parts changers rather than fault finding and rectifying. I saw this starting in the few years before I retired from work, service engineers were just swapping parts until faults disappeared.

25 years ago, I worked for a company that took the Norton Rotary engine and converted it for aviation use. One of the many offshoots of the development was a single rotor engine, coupled to a generator which ran on Hydrogen. The MD would drink the by product in front of the press whenever he got the chance. :eek

The drinking the by product stunt reminded me of a guy called Trevor Jackson, who bought the right to the Austin Motor Co logo. His company is Austin Electric. He’s developed the aluminium/air battery a stage further and came up with a non toxic electrolyte, that he would drink in demos to would be investors. His batteries are non rechargeable and are changed and recycled. He regards them as fuel cells rather than batteries, but reckons one of his cells of equivalent weight to the battery in a Tesla S, which apparently has a range of 370 miles, would carry the Tesla 2700 miles. There must be a glaring negative to this idea as it’s certainly not making any headlines.

This lead to the fact that due to their increase weight, tyre wear is accelerated as well as brake pad life shortened as there's no engine braking. They went on to say that some areas where EVs have become popular, the  air quality has in fact decreased. :eek

Our local coal fired power station has now been continuously burning since the beginning of November, well past its closure date now. My youngest lass has 4 horses and a trailer, and competes them throughout the midlands. Taking them  out to a show/competition looks like becoming an impossible task, 50 miles each way pulling the trailer with two three quarter ton equines loaded. Doubtless hundreds of thousands like us in similar situations, showgrounds/yards unlikely to provide charging points and normally stay for only around three to four hours. This mad dash for electric has to stop until we have the generating capacity and vehicles to maintain our society as we would want

Having watched a lot of the live news from Ukraine over the last week or so, the grit and determination of the population, became more than evident. I watched a documentary film on Netflix, Winter on Fire. It certainly gave an insight how a city’s residents can really strive against adversity, no matter how ill quipped they were. Certainly made an impact on me.

What worries me a tad, is that Putin is former KGB (Cold War) - he's looking at reclaiming the territories that went from their control when the wall came down. With that as a target, he will not tolerate any humiliation from the West/NATO. If he becomes humiliated in anyway (example withdrawal from Ukraine), I wouldn't be surprised to see a limited nuclear strike, which would be closely followed up by a retaliatory strike from the Alliance. Then it snowballs from tit for tat into China having a go at Taiwan, to antagonise the US into making a bad move.
Putin will certainly go down in history for something - lets hope its more humanitarian than starting the end of the world as we know it. Some people will regard this as a conspiracy theory, along with a tin foil hat, but................

The crying shame is the inability to provide no fly zones, as much as we would like and as much as Zelensky pleads for it, as this would play straight into Putins hands, with the threat of a horrific result. As fazerscotty said, he’s trying to rewrite history and re-establish former territories. Maybe NATO ought to sign up Finland and Sweden a bit sharpish, as Putin is acting like the worst playground bully, that no-one, at present, can do anything about.

Carbs are off, currently wrapped in a pillowcase. Work has gone ballistic, so as the saying goes, I'm making hay whilst the sun shines (and not doing anything else!)


SWMBO wants to go out on the bikes on Friday (Its her birthday), so the 600 Divvy which has been parked outside through the winter with everything connected (without an optimate) was resurrected a couple of days ago. Just need to see if the 750 Shadow will play nicely. Its been in the garage, optimated and covered in a duvet since last September!
I'll do that whilst she's cooking my breakfast on Friday morning  :rollin :rollin :rollin :rollin

I've put all of the parts required in a box which is on the bench in the way. That'll remind me to get cracking.
Started to clean the exhaust up. Was sorely tempted to go down the Harpic route, however, I have read articles that mention that the chemical reaction "embrittles" the metal and that if you don't neutralize it properly the rust will be back very quickly.
Out with the Autosol on the headers - and they are starting to look good. Might even run them over the polishing wheel.
Title: Re: Whoever posts last is best
Post by: robbo on 01 April 2022, 11:48:45 am
Used the Harpic method on my Triumph with no ill effects, but will certainly take on board the “embrittle” advice. My Fazer was fairly mint when I bought it with only 8,000 on the clock. That’s allowed me to keep on top of the state of the headers that now have got 40k+ on them. Solvol and thin strips of rag or mutton cloth work well if you don’t have to take them off.

I've taken mine off - I'll freshen up the paint on the front of the engine at the same time. Problem is - each time I start to clean/refresh something, something else to do hove's into view  :'( .

Sorry to hear you're a bit under the weather, hopefully just a short term thing, that will soon see you well. The rads do take a lot of abuse with the short front mudguard. A couple of years back I succumbed to a fender extender, think they look awful, but certainly do their job. It'll be valve check time this winter, so might consider getting my rad recored while it's off the bike.

I've got the extender on - previous owner installed it. I even have a rad guard, but there is a small area, approx 1" x 1" where there are about half a dozen fins that are no longer straight.

Enjoy your whizz out tomorrow, hope you like it. I suppose you had a dry run on the carb removal when you did the cables, and knew exactly what to expect.

Whizz out went well - I think I'm going to have to restrain my right wrist somehow - that Slip On kit and the tweaks have transformed the acceleration in a way I was not expecting. It's even more rideable than before, with it seems more mid range grunt  :eek .
Got back from the run out and remembered that it was 8 years ago that I hit a deer - I was doing about 70mph on a FJR1300! Broke a collarbone and a couple of ribs, wrote off the bike and killed the deer.
I remember it mainly because it means it's coming up to the 8th Anniversary of me getting the  :faz .

Glad it all went well, you certainly get a good bang for your buck with that kit, and it’s all your work :thumbup . Fuel consumption may increase a tad, but the grin outweighs any negatives.
You were lucky regarding the deer event, as could have turned out a lot worse. One of my pals hit one in his car only a couple of years ago, but it’s really affected his bike speed confidence, especially passing through woods/forests, which is quite understandable. The car took a good hit which would have been much worse on a bike. I had one decide to cross the road in front of me up in Scotland, fortunately giving me time to do something about it. However I did start thinking that if the car that baulked me a mile or so back, hadn’t,  then I’d have been further up the road towards the deer, with no doubt a different outcome :eek .

Yep, err on the side of caution. Nothing wrong with that :thumbup

Glad it all went well, you certainly get a good bang for your buck with that kit, and it’s all your work :thumbup . Fuel consumption may increase a tad, but the grin outweighs any negatives.
You were lucky regarding the deer event, as could have turned out a lot worse. One of my pals hit one in his car only a couple of years ago, but it’s really affected his bike speed confidence, especially passing through woods/forests, which is quite understandable. The car took a good hit which would have been much worse on a bike. I had one decide to cross the road in front of me up in Scotland, fortunately giving me time to do something about it.

Back now - temps went up and stayed 30 - 32 degs, dropping to 22 - 24 in the evening.
Chaos at the airports, not so much going out, but coming back was horrendous, so much so that every time something else went wrong, I'd laugh out loud. Seems a lot of people expect too much and have no sense of humour  :rollin :rollin :rollin .

As an update on the winter spring upgrade - I took the  :faz  for a trip out on Saturday. The Ivans mod is really worth it. Much smoother, encourages hooligan type behaviour. Overall, motorway at 90 and A roads up and down the box saw 40+mpg.
Going for new tyres next.

Nice, glad you like it, even more so as it's all your own work, as Mike did mine. I like the way it pulls so cleanly out of slow uphill corners, as well as the top end rush of course. On the tyre front, Red Ceri of this parish, put me on to the Metz Roadtec 01's, which have now morphed into the 01 SE. Not cheap, but they are very confidence inspiring in all road conditions. If I tried an alternative it would be the M9RR from the same company and recommended on the Tracer forum. Tyres are so very expensive of late, but you've gotta have them :D

It came with Angel GT's, which were worn but rideable.
I then fitted PR 2's, which I found really good.
I have tried Metz Z6's, which was a laugh. Changed the way it handled to something more akin of a BMW!
Currently got PR 4's on.

I tried a pair of conti road attack 3's on my TDM850 and it transformed the feel, so much more confidence in the corners now and they don't need scrubbing in.

Interesting. How come they don't need scrubbing in. I thought all tyres had some sort of "release agent" residue left over from the molding process. Tyre fitters always give the "take it easy for the first 100 miles or so", advice.
Title: Re: Whoever posts last is best
Post by: Grahamm on 15 June 2022, 05:29:24 pm
I don't know about any other manufacturers, but Bridgstone say that they don't use a release agent.

Personally, I wait for a dry day when I have to get a new tyre, then go for a ride along the motorway to wear in the centre line, then do arcing lane changes to start working in the sides.

After that, I head out to the twisties, gradually increasing the speed through the turns until I'm getting towards the edges.

Well, whatever I go for, I'm looking forward to new rubber. Fitting the Ivans kit has transformed the way the bike runs and accelerates out of corners and roundabouts. Pushed it a bit the other evening and found it has a huge surge at around 7k and I mean a real surge  :eek

Glad you're enjoying the fruits of your labour. Very satisfying. On the new tyre scrubbing in subject, I'm quite happy to gently scrub in for the first 100 miles or so irrespective of any contrary advice. After all, I'll be paying for any damage if it all goes wrong. :eek

In real world road riding in this country, there’s no great advantage in having a later bike in my opinion, other than the smile factor of having something new, or feel abs, a quickshifter, engine maps etc are a must have.The Fazer is a real Swiss Army knife kind of bike, that’ll have a good go at most aspects of biking, off road excluded, without being outstanding at any one discipline. Mine will be loaded up with camping gear and off to the Bol d’Or in September, and I know she, and I, will lap it up.

I went to Sherburn yesterday - brilliant ride up in the morning, but it was a bit warm on the way back. Didn't miss a beat, went through 80k on the way back. Burnt a bit of oil - not surprising really, 20yr old engine, 80+ cruising speed, 37degs OAT etc etc.


Worse bit of the trip back, was filtering through 6 stationary miles of traffic on the A1. Filtering was okay, but the heat coming from under the HGV's was horrendous!

Nice part of the country to ride in. At least you could keep moving. Drove back from Donington yesterday morning, no air con(broken), stationary around Birmingham several times. Had to have the heater on to keep engine temp down whilst 35 degrees OAT, deep joy, thought my trainers were going to melt :lol . Brands should be a bit cooler this weekend and is only 20 miles away, if that.
Never known an engine like the Fazer to have the ability to “hide” oil. I don’t always add oil if it looks lower than normal as invariably the next time I check it, it’s back to normal. A 100cc here and there is a small price to pay for the Gen 1 experience. Some beemers do a litre/1 thousand miles as normal :eek .

I used to own a GSX1100-FL, the "Powerscreen" model with 16" rims front and rear. After it passed 70K, it was easier just to keep topping the oil up, but change the filter on a regular basis. Got rid at around 98K and its still going strong!
Their probably made a bit better now  :rollin :rollin  - although, when looking for a replacement in 2011, the then GSX1250 had the same fuel consumption as a bike made 20 years earlier - passed on that and bought an FJR1300  :D

Mate - you are a star. You have just given me an idea  :rollin :rollin :rollin
Still, she's got to get through the next 4 days - I'm working away and the Grandkids are visiting  :lol
