Re: Test ride challenge

Sorry Folks, Checked the manual and the "don't blip the throttle" advice is in the fuel economy section. I now remember the bit about slipper clutch disconnecting came from a friend with a slipper...

Re: Test ride challenge

Nice review Yokohama.
I went for a test ride on the XSR900 back in September. Hook, line and sinker springs to mind. Ergonomics are spot on for me. Traded my SV the following week, and I had six...

Re: The random rideout pictures thread

It's out west, near Dundonnell, on the A832. Lovely twisty road with the usual rubbish scenery to distract you from the upcoming corner. :-)
Where were you?

Re: The random rideout pictures thread

I was thinking that today too. Had to retreat and change gloves and jacket, even though it was sunny and the temperature claimed to be the similar to Saturday. I didn't stop for pics, here's one from...

Re: The All new Reeder Megathread

Darren,
I've seen pics of wheels that Richie Foss, near Loch Ness, has repaired that I wouldn't have thought possible.
He doesn't paint them though.

Re: SV Rally Concept

I've had my naked SV for a while now and have been looking at what's out there. Decided I like so much of what the SV does well that I was going to go for a new style SV. We don't have a Suzuki...

Re: The Thin End . . .

Our wee village has been done recently, and so have the surrounding villages. It's easy to forget, especially if you stop at a shop and start off again.
I saw it being enforced on a Sunday morning....

Re: Coolant leak?

Looks like you are right about that G48 stuff having silicates.
Acting on recommendations on here, I used halford's OAT, the pink stuff, it's silicate free. I reckon its easier to see the level in...

Re: Cheap chain lube

I bought some last year, but haven't used it. I thought it looked messy compared to the usual brand I use.

Re: Coolant leak?

I think the 2003/2004 radiator is wider, so it might be called 2005-on.

Re: OMO, back EMF brushed dc motor speed control

Never designed one, just bought and used industrial versions. They had AC supplies so used Thyristor bridges, and used tacho-feedback for best speed control.
Used some small DC supplied ones that...

Re: Cheap"Cyclone" Alarm fitting/Review

I wonder if the alarm has a battery inside, so the drain current looks high just now, but might drop once the battery is charged.

Re: Petrol smell when cornering

I get the same remarks about my K5.
I assume its overfuelling when accelerating, so those behind smell the unburnt fuel from the exhaust.

Re: Best screen for the naked sv 650

Did you see these?

Re: differences between the naked pointy and faired pointy
