» "The blade is back" it never left it was just shite compared to the others.
Feb 21, 2020 - 7:57 AM - by johnny b
The new fireblade looks a savage peice of kit.
Honda had certainly fallen behind other brands and are still missing quikshifters on the 20k sterling basic bike.

The super duper version being reviewed below is 23k sterling.

Honda is back at the races.but at the price of a decent saloon cage are they going to sell?

Since 2008 the blade (the ugly nosed one with the habbit of eating cranks) has just increased in price with all the other sportsbikes.
In the last 12 years litre class bikes have gone from 15k new to now 20k new sterling.

Nearly all manufacturers are offering specials of their litre class bikes but is it price stopping stopping them from getting on the road.
We are being told in bike mags that the... [Read More]

» Bus oil on Griffith Avenue
Feb 18, 2020 - 9:51 AM - by phut
Bus oil all along a stretch of Griffith Ave (Dublin) this morning. A big, fat slick showing where the offending jalopy has been pulling in to stops. So take care.

Any bets on whether Dublin Bus or TFI clean it up?

» Slipping clutch only when the bike is cold
Feb 17, 2020 - 12:25 PM - by Chipped rim
Wasn't happening before. Now it slips under more than 50% acceleration until it fully warms up around 75~c. Bike is k1 gsxr 1000. Clutch plates were replaced recently with EBC. Was fine for about 4k miles but now it is slipping but only when the bike is cold.

» Tool Chests?
Feb 14, 2020 - 5:30 PM - by CodeJACK
Whats yer thoughts on this tool chest and how usefull the drawers are for depth etc? Are less drawers but deeper better than more drawers with more surface area?
Ive a significant birthday on the way and family are all chipping in a little to help me invest in a decent tool chest.

This is the one I think Im after:
https://www.donedeal.ie/tools-for-sa...rawer/24177830

The seller doesn't have much of a presence and orders them in from the UK on request. Im a little nervous paying for something so expensive without any come back. All I have is a mobile number really. Will I risk it?

Hi folks,

Going to look at a vfr on Sunday in stillorgan, 3pm. I know a bit about bikes but not confident enough to base a purchase on my knowledge alone. Is anyone about Sunday 16th @ 3pm (Stillorgan village secondary car park) to give it a once over?

Cheers!!

So I'm getting my cast off today. After seven weeks, four plates, fourteen screws/pins and a dislocation with three fractures, I'm going to be free! On the positive, I've no ligament damage. I know I'm going to be stiff and it going to take time but has anyone else had something like this and how long until you were well enough to get back on the bike? Thanks.

Far too much to just pay the back tax on it so is selling the bike to a friend to tax it for me and me buying it back still work?

» Write off...Can I sell my bike?
Feb 08, 2020 - 4:34 PM - by jic44
At the end of last summer I was selling a cage and took a bike as a straight swap. Dent on tank but otherwise fine.

I got the log book no hassle and the bike came taxed till middle of this year.

I advertised it for sale having only ever driven it home. Got a bite on it yesterday. The lad rang liberty to check insurance today and was told the bike is down as a write off beyond economical repair.

He is still interested but my question is, can i sell this to be used on the road or will the next owner have issues.

A potential lemon.
