» looking for a couple of bits for my F650GS; oil pressure switch and front mudguard
Mar 27, 2019 - 10:09 PM - by Alesi27
I will be going to the local BMW shop if all else fails but it will be next week before i get a chance, just checking in case anyone in the country has either of the following lying around gathering dust...

» Fueling issue
Mar 27, 2019 - 7:45 PM - by Honda boi
So lads have had a problem with the gsx 1400.
Had her running fine the other day.
Wasn't 100% and would idle for a minute then cut out.
Next day fit new spark plug, turn key CHEC on the display.
Kill switch wasn't on. Found the ignition fuse had blown,so changed that,nope as soon as I turn the key pop again.
After fiddling around with Cables and connectors, when I turn the key the pump relay would just constantly click. So I thought it was the relay,ordered one online,stuck it in,nope still clicking
Noticed when I disconnected the fuel pump it stopped.
So stripped the fuel pump down, stuck 12 volts on it and was making a noise but nothing was... [Read More]

» Mandatory Speed Limiters in 2 years !
Mar 27, 2019 - 5:31 PM - by Admin
All vehicles could be fitted with devices that stop them going over 70mph, under new EU road safety measures which aim to cut deaths from road accidents by a third.

Speed limiting technology looks set to become mandatory for all vehicles sold in Europe from 2022, after new rules were provisionally agreed by the EU.

Campaigners welcomed the move, saying it would save thousands of lives.

Road safety charity Brake called it a "landmark day", but the AA said "a little speed" helped with overtaking or joining motorways.

» Michael Dunlop: BSB men have raised bar at the TT but don't write me off yet
Mar 27, 2019 - 10:20 AM - by Admin
Michael Dunlop says he may be going into this year’s Isle of Man TT as something of an underdog but has warned his rivals ‘I’ve a lot more left in the tank’. Dunlop moved onto 18 victories last year following a Superbike, Supersport and Lightweight treble, but much of the spotlight centred on the record lap times set by Senior TT winner Peter Hickman and Dean Harrison.

» Honda CB 750, new exhaust system
Mar 27, 2019 - 10:14 AM - by breathnach
Hi Folks,
Looking for some advice please. Being offered a 98 Honda Cb seven fifty F2 with 32k on the clock from a friend for 1000. Bike is running ok but cosmetically is a little rough. Issue is that it needs a new exhaust system. His mechanic said it could be at about 500euro (part only depending on where he could source it second hand). He also says some of the bolts to remove the exhaust look like they would be a real pain to remove so i can image labour might be expensive.
Anyone come across this before. Should i buy or walk away and keep looking.

Lads, anyone here in Cork, close to Carrigaline if possible able to do a few welds for me. Stick weld will do the finest as it is only on a frame and it's nothing too important. It's all tacked and all so not much time in it. A few euros in it for ya and all

» So i had a accident....what to do next?
Mar 26, 2019 - 2:43 PM - by Doomdom
Few days ago I was hit by a car and I was taken to hospital by ambulance.
Accident wasn't my fault and it was caused by other driver.
I called my insurance company and they sounded nice but in the end i was basically told that because i have only TPFT insurance they are not going to do anything and if i want claim any damage its up to me to chase down other driver or to get a solicitor do it for me.
Problem is I don't have any info about driver that hit me. Garda was on scene of accident but due to data protection law they refused to give me any info about him or about his insurance.
I really don't know what to do now. I didn't wanted to deal with solicitors but it looks like i don't have any other option.

» What shops sell wheel bearing kits in Dublin?
Mar 26, 2019 - 10:24 AM - by SandR

I'm looking for a place where I can walk in and buy wheel bearing kits without ordering/waiting. The only place I know is Cotters and their web page says "available 2-3 days". I could order from them or from eBay, but it'd be nice to get it faster.

Thank you.

Day 1 of this new official test session went really well.

4 sessions each day for each class giving means plenty of time to make adjustments or improve setups.

On hand to give tuition and guidance on and off the track was Dickies British Supersport champion Jack Kennedy on the Mondello S1000rr.

It's on again tomorrow and admission is free for everyone, highly recommended.

Must open a file share account to post photo's. What site is everyone using to embed images?

» Sump plug ringed fazer 6
Mar 23, 2019 - 10:51 AM - by yamaharule
As above. I ringed the sump plug on my fazer 1999 600 while changing the oil. It's found a new thread and got a good bite/tighten.
My question is, can I use an oil pump on these ? The one they use for cages. Would it work ?
I got a new sump plug off wii moto and it was pure shite.
