» Raffle sites
Jul 27, 2020 - 8:12 PM - by CatchMe
What do people think of these sites ?

Some nice toys, tickets seem to sell out fast.
Hearing stories of people who know of people etc that have won more than once, don't know anyone first hand though

Lowest odds seem to be around 800:1 (0.125%) going up to 20000:1

Nice buildbase gsxr on the Ni site last week

Any winners here?

» Reverse engineering for 3D parts.
Jul 26, 2020 - 10:33 PM - by efanton
I know there's a few on here that are into 3D printing and wonder if they might be able to answers a 3D printing related question.

I am left handed, and also fly flight sims. Vorpil are a company that produce high quality HOTAS joystick and throttle systems.
When I found out they produce a left handed version for their joystick I got fairly excited until I found out they do not do a left handed version of the throttle unit.

» Miniature Terminals-Where sells them
Jul 26, 2020 - 9:26 PM - by scudster
I’m trying to source small uninsulated terminals for the Blackbird. More specifically the female terminals that are in the hidden earth junction plug on the loom. I initially thought they were regular 2.8mm but they’re a little smaller.
Have a charging issue and found some corroded grounding terminals and wiring that certainly isn’t helping and needs replacing.

» electric motorbike insurers??
Jul 26, 2020 - 8:27 PM - by Frog
Have any of you insured an electric motorbike?
If so what company did you go with?
I am buying a Zero SRF electric motorbike. I rang my insurance broker last week to add it to my policy and they haven't got back to me since.
I use Carol Nash and just presumed that they would be a bit more efficient.
TIA.

In actual fact I think not although I see the benefit for sure.
I am thinking of getting a much smaller digital one for my bike as I am changing the set up the front end anyway and minimal is the new look.
Anybody use one of these and do they do the do?

Never did get my tyre from Dpd , Desperately Poor Deliviries. Never even got a response from them as their customer care is non existent. Unfortunately this means avoiding Oponeo who use them, shame as Oponeo seem ok and are going to refund me.
Now Parcel Motel are struggling to deliver a reasonable service, here’s how they’re getting on with my parcel..........

» Bike Leaning?
Jul 22, 2020 - 10:43 AM - by TuneR
Still learning since im only biking 3 years now so bear with me as im not sure what the issue is. I was in traffic yesterday adjusting my gloves (so removed both hands) while moving slowly and the bike started leaning on its own to the left. Never had this issue before, could easily adjust my gloves without having to quickly go for the handlebars. Tried it at 80kmph and didn't seem bad but as soon as the speed dropped to 70 it started to lean again. Tried on different road surfaces too but no difference and the bike hasn't hit a pothole or anything either. Only thing different is that i had the OEM tyres replaced, would it lean that much if they're not balanced correctly?

Anyone been to Spain or France last couple of weeks on the bikes? Headed down to Bilbao next week on the trusty DL over the Pyrenees and back through France and wondering what the story is with accommodation masks eating out etc...in either country.

Are they strict and any hassle at the borders or ports.

A very short review.
Sweet Jeebus what a machine.
1100 kms in 3days.
Fell in love with biking again.
I left Dublin on Thursday and headed south on a scenic route. Glenmacnase, Avoca , East coastal spin, hang a right, Clonroche , Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Bridge, hang a left, Waterford, Tramore, Copper Coast, Dungarvan, Youghal and Killeagh where I met a mate who just bought a Tracer GT.
Friday was a late start. Left the Viaduct at 14.30 and headed west.
Bandon , Clonakilty, Skibbereen, Ballydehob, Bantry, Glengariff, Castletownbere, Eyeries, Lauragh, Healy Pass and back to Glengariff.
Mate was booked into hotel there so I headed back to Killeagh. 1hr 15 mins
Saturday was a rest day ish
Sunday was the scenic route... [Read More]

Hello Lads and Lassies,

My GTR 1400 just lost the sump plug so I'm stranded but recovery is on the way. Stopped in time so engine is ok but all the oil pissed out.

Would anyone in the Longford/Westmeath area have a sump plug that would fit a '16 GTR 1400?
