WTD, curvy right hand side top fairing

Scrapes/scratches are OK within reason but the mounting points have got to be intact, and no outright cracks. Otherwise I'll just use the orrible one I already have :D

Re: In praise of Yuasa batteries

Mine has one of the uprated Yuasas in it, I think a YTZ12S- and I just charged it from completely dead after 2 years and it came back strong. Not quite as good as new I think, it seems a little low...

Re: What have you tinkered with today?

Lots of sanding and fillering- undenting a spare tank, and removing the caliper mounts from the left leg of a GSXR fork. Both projects I started in about 2009!

Re: Jetting info???

I'm surprised it wants jets tbh, but I think I saw a thread you posted about this? Hesitation at 6-7000 when you snap the throttle? If so that's a classic undersized mains symptom on the SV, it's the...

Re: What's the current hotness in aftermarket clocks for a curvy?

Cheers- what model is that? Looks really tidy but still readable, I like it a lot. Does it retain the warning lights? There is ample evidence that if I don't have a fuel warning light, it's only a...

WTD, curvy fuel tap and fuel level sensor

Mostly the fuel tap actually but if you've got both I'll take em- just want to set up a spare tank so I don't need to drain it all the time

What's the current hotness in aftermarket clocks for a curvy?

Used to be Koso last time I looked, which was like 7 years ago... Just thinking out loud just now but I liked running my S as an N from time to time and it'd be good to do it less halfassed, so I'm...

Re: Curvy won't idle without choke, won't do mid throttle, will rev

Well that stayed impressively ontopic :rolleyes:

In proper Northwind form, I've derusted the subframe, removed all the plastics and started refurbing my spare petrol tank, and not actually looked...

Re: The MTB thread

Which model is it? They're mostly pretty bad tbh.

What sort of bike are you after? 450 would nearly buy a brand new Voodoo Bizango, it'll definitely buy a very good used one, they're fantastic...

Re: The MTB thread

You could do worse than a Specialized Captain. They're a pretty good allrounder- the central tread blocks are close together so fast rolling in a straight line, and the rest of the tread is more open...
