Re: Spontaneous Hazard Lights - GSXR1000 K3

Don't blame him! Never had an alarm actually prevent a theft of anything of mine. Two burly blokes chasing after the thieving scrotes did get my bike back however...

Re: Spontaneous Hazard Lights - GSXR1000 K3

Alarms are a PITA.
Had a Ford Scorpio that the alarm would go off when it rained heavily (pre-Met Office Yellow rain warnings?!)


Most people ignore them when they sound and they screw up your...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

That makes some sense, as in the firewood and fruit is yours.


However, I couldn't help but notice that the website is www.problemneighbours so probably appropriate! ;)

I would calm right down and approach them later stating that you are not an unreasonable person, and had they asked you to reduce the height of the trees you would have...

Re: 2020 Panigale vs K5 GSXR

It's engine was the basis of the powerplant for the GSX S1000 which I can assure you is a rip-snorting beast and one of the reasons I bought one. :D

Re: SK3 fork oil level, weight and general confusion

Spookily enough, I went for the Ohlins 8.5N/mm and 10W oil with a set of PR5 tyres and the front end is much improved (I'm 12st plus gear) this coupled with a Nitron rear shock and my old K5 is like...

Re: Goodbye MT09SP, hello Z900RS

I thought that when I got my GSX-S, the fan kicks in even when in 1st or 2nd gear filtering through town.


I think they deliberately set the temperature low as some sort of warranty insurance...

Re: Nightmare day

And buy replacement fasteners for everything in stainless steel and smother them in RRG when reattaching. There are very few OEM bolts/nuts, etc on my bike!

Re: no pressure In rear brakes

That was what I was thinking. Mine went at 13yrs and the kit consists of some o-rings and a spring IIRC and retails for 45 or something stoopid. My rear seized on, but I assume the opposite could...

Re: Front end woes

I don't suppose you have any commercial interest in the paint shop?

No wonder so many people throw up their hands with electrical problems! Well done fella, and well done to have the perseverance to get to the bottom of it all.

Re: Smile of the day - What is yours?

Interesting.
I honestly thought it was a marketing gimmick to attract wannabe's.

Re: Continental Conti Motion opinions?

Got PR5 on the SV and they're stunning. Front has done 13k mles and will need replacing after another 2-3k. Rear about 10k (before a puncture destroyed it) probably would have got another 2k from it....

Re: It's here

True, but it makes the SV look "beefy" with twin discs and a frame not made from bicycle parts!

Re: 13500 miles on rear tyre

I am still a fan of Michelin PR5s, but I've yet to test mileage as I'm on my third rear in 2 years due to punctures.
Essex thing of discarding sharp items from cars and vans on the road.
I'd love...

Re: electric motorcycles

OK so that's the RR version but the base model to quote,


The best bit of the whole thing by far though is just how cheap it is – a standard Strike is $12,998 (approx. 9895). If you want to go...

Re: electric motorcycles

I'd like this, and in USA it's about 10,000. Lightning Strike 2. Go on! You would!
