» Looking for a sport bike
Sep 16, 2020 - 6:19 PM - by dukeboy2
I'm in the market for a sport bike. I'll mostly use it for track days but I'd like to keep it road legal so I can drive it to/from Mondello and take it for the occasional weekend spin.

Budget is around 10k

Ideally, I'd like something that has ABS + traction control. Currently I'm considering the likes of

2015ish BMW S1000RR
2013ish Big Bang R1 (I prefer the 2016 model, but a little too pricy). I have a 2007 R1 now.

I've seen a couple of CBR1000rr in the 2014/2015 for good money but I don't think they have TC (it's not a deal breaker, but I'd prefer a bike with TC)

What else should I be looking at?

» Order Custom Tailored Leathers in Ireland
Sep 14, 2020 - 8:25 PM - by The Road Runner
I put up a post about Dublin Leather.Com a few weeks back to see if anyone had dealt with them.
I phoned them about a week later and spoke to a nice lad in Drogheda .....and he was so helpful i decided to place an order with them, I got the measurement charts sent shortly after............so i returned my measurements and the order was put into action.

I received my leathers about three weeks later, and im delighted with the finished product , a very high standard of fit, finish and design ......way better fit and finish than i received from SCOTT LEATHERS UK.....

I would highly recommend to biker.ie members ... [Read More]

» Dt 175
Sep 14, 2020 - 3:41 PM - by Robbie N
Hi All, just got a Yamaha DT175 from 1978, The Clutch is slipping, moreso in higher gears I think. What should I check?
Also the kick start is not gripping on the spindle?, so it it keeps slipping around despite tightening. Any tips on how to prevent this?

Thanks

» CBF125 "Kangarooing" issue
Sep 11, 2020 - 2:00 AM - by Ianik
Alright lads, I had recently bought a used CBF 125 2009 with a bit of miles on it. The bike was running fine when I was inspecting it but when I rode the bike home it was cutting off then turning back on, I found that a bit weird, I searched it up online and it seems like a very common issue with the CBF's. Some people say to replace the fuel pump, while others suggest putting a heat shield between the tank and the engine. Did anyone around here faced this issue and how did you resolve it? And if you have any idea on how to check for a faulty fuel pump or another possible reason that would cause the issue please let me know! Thank you for looking

Lads, I want to buy an Inverter Arc Welder for home use. I will be using a standard domestic 13A supply socket. What Amps could I expect to be able to weld at without blowing the fuse? Should I be able to weld say 5mm thick plate and use 3.2mm rods without blowing fuses all the time? Also any suggestions of good Inverter Arc Welders, make/models?

Sep 05, 2020 - 1:33 AM - by Gixxer
... Bike riders used to be able to service their own bikes?
When bike riders didn't have to rely on someone else to change their oil?

It's mad how the world has changed, isn't it. A lot of people these days have to take their bike to a 'specialist' to change the oil
It's almost as if we're living in a world of complete fuckwits, who couldn't wipe their own arse without mammy to help them

» Silverstone BSB: Stand-in rider Rea sets the Friday pace
Sep 04, 2020 - 3:30 PM - by Admin
Buildbase Suzuki stand-in rider Gino Rea set the Bennetts British Superbike pace this afternoon at Silverstone, going seven-tenths under the lap record to beat points leader Glenn Irwin.

Rea, who moved from the Bike Devil Kawasaki team to sub for the injured Keith Farmer, set a 53.434 to push Honda’s Irwin into second place.

The Irishman had been sitting pretty at the top of the sheets with a 53.607 with Jason ‘O’Halloran putting a late charge for third on the McAMS Yamaha.

Josh Brookes ended the day in fourth place on the VisionTrack Ducati Panigale with a 53.676. The Australian topped first practice this time last year but with a 54.196 which shows how much the pace has dropped in 16 months.

» Jack Kennedy joins the dole que
Sep 02, 2020 - 1:00 PM - by Admin
Dubliner Jack Kennedy is on the hunt for a new, full-time ride in 2020 after the santander TAG Yamaha team withdrew from this year’s bennetts british superbikes series leaving the reigning british supersport champion high and dry.



Both Kennedy, who was expected to be at the business end of the series from day one this year, and Dan Linfoot have been plagued by bike issues and no amount of work, parts and even a Dunlop tyre test have been able to fix.

The team announced this morning they would take no further part in this year’s championship to focus on 2021. Kennedy has been offered a place in that setup.

» Cover recommendations.
Sep 01, 2020 - 6:49 PM - by Ianasauras
Hi lads,
I'm moving soon and the bike is going to be a bit out in the open for the next while, between 2 cages. So what's a good cover at reasonable money?
Preferably with a space for a chain on the back wheel to go through. Probably needs to be heavy duty with the winter coming in. I've had a cover pull the bike over before in heavy wind so any way to avoid that?
Been looking at all the websites but it seems everyone just recommends whatever they've been paid to sell.
I suspect Oxford are my best option?

I picked up a blackbird a few weeks ago and only got it out for a decent spin at the weekend. On an empty motorway decided to stretch it out a little.
I found the headwind so bad I actually strained my neck.
I tried all different seating positions, nothing worked.

Now I had a ZZR1100 about 18 months ago. I don,t remember this been an issue.
same helmet as before.

Any ideas or am I just getting old.
