Re: Rear brake light switch

Take the right hanger off and get to it that way.

It may just need adjusting, or loosening up as they can corrode up.

Cheap enough to replace though.

Re: ABS Defeat Switch

Nice reasoning OP, I get it.

Had similar problems with a modern GSXS1000 ABS I test rode. Never ridden ABS before so had to test it out, I was surprised how early it cut in, genuinely felt I...

Re: ABS Defeat Switch

It will affect insurance.

If I was minded to disable ABS, I would probably go for the fuses. Replace them with spade connectors & tails, which go off to your own fuse and switch system.

Re: Gearbox F**ked

Dont you just hate that, when both your bikes end up off the road at the same time.

Bad luck, but I tend to agree, another engine or write the poor bike off.

Re: SV1000 K3 FI light :(

+1 You need dealer mode. Short the 2 pins in the empty white connector under the seat, that will show you the code on the dash. Look it up, and go from there.

Re: Drilling yolks

If you do drill it, make sure you beef up the back (the space in the casting) with a custom made ally "washer" to spread the load.

Many have done it, so it is possible. Personally I opted for an...

Re: Oil leak with bike on Abba stand

Not sure about the outer cover Bibio, never had it off.

Yes Fchat, push spacers out before you lap the cover. I made mine a tad shorter than the lapped thickness of the cover, because the heads...

Re: Oil leak with bike on Abba stand

I lapped mine with fine sandpaper, taped on MDF, far quicker than paste, and sealed properly afterwards with the old oring!

You must shorten the spacers though, otherwise they are too long and...

Re: Oil leak with bike on Abba stand

If its the round centre leaking, it should be fixable?

I did mine by sanding flat on a sheet of MDF, and shortening the spacers, also by sanding. Didn't replace the oring.

Been leak free for a...

Re: Erratic ignition now no power, no start

The wiring loom can chaff and fail, where it passes next to the tank hinge, worth a quick look.

Re: Rattle can spraying

Ive used Simonize Tough Black to good effect. Looks great and is tough enough for a bottom yoke.

Re: Oh no, not again (speeding)

Probably safe, but not definitely I'm afraid. I think they technically have months to serve the notice, but usually do it within weeks. The long time is due to problems contacting owner, or finding...

Re: respray

Just buy used side panels and a tank? Cheaper than a pro respray.

I quite like that high level exhaust, and yes that colour goes well with the black.

Re: Curvy gearbox problems

Will it cleanly go from first to neutral whilst moving? You could put on a paddock stand to test this (be very careful).

If better when moving, check the clutch plates for warping.

Re: K1 carb refit after 4 years in storage

I had the throttle shaft seize on my Curvy a few years back.

I did manage to get the butterfly screws out with "normal" screwdrivers, with no damage. Sorry don't remember what I used. When...

Unnecessary use of Stinger on Bike?

Re: The Crash Detectives - a sobering story

On a personal note, I had a similar incident thankfully at a lot lower speeds.

I did a fruity overtake on someone and clearly made them jump, he caught me up and started hurling abuse. I ignored...

Re: The Crash Detectives - a sobering story

If you are on a bike, being chased by an irate driver, it is very difficult to get yourself into a safe position unless you have the power to boot it and literally run away. You cannot safely slow...

Re: The Crash Detectives - a sobering story

The sentence is too lenient, especially when compared to that given to very high speed driving which results in no accident or death. Or compared to the poor soul who passed out and killed someone...
