Re: Electrical output

Not sure where you live but modulators are illegal in the UK.

Re: What have you tinkered with today?

Yep it lives in the conservatory over winter. I give it a cuddle from time to time :lol:

Re: What have you tinkered with today?

Yeah it seemed like the easiest way. Plus the bike is living inside just now so splashing bleach and coke everywhere isn't really an option :p



Yeah it's getting there

Re: What have you tinkered with today?

Thanks for all the tips guys.

This is what they looked like after brushing on some Harpic

Re: Where to sell a K3 SV1000N

I have actually done a fair few miles on a naked thou. I also had a 650 with the exact forks you have on yours. The 650 definitely feels nimbler and lighter. Turns in easier

What about the other...

Re: Where to sell a K3 SV1000N

What?

They look identical apart from the engine casings. Sound very similar (some might say the 650 sounds better). Both have under stressed bullet proof engines. They both easily accept GSXR bolt...

Re: The running thread.

Very well done for completing the half DD!



I was very lazy last week and didn't get out at all. Mostly because it was cold and raining :-$

Managed to do a solid 5 miles tonight though....

Re: What have you tinkered with today?

I think I bought the wrong colour of autosol because it's just turning things black. Might be time to break out the chemicals

Re: What have you tinkered with today?

After 16k miles I thought it was about time I gave my pipes a little polish. The 3k miles without washing the bike last year certainly didn't help.

So today I started to disassemble them, BOOM!...

Re: Dropping your bike and garage woes

If the floor is that bad I'd keep the bike on paddock stands or even a plank of wood

Re: The running thread.

My ankles are still a bit stiff from Friday. Do you guys do any ankle muscle warm ups? Mine are always a bit wooden when I start

Re: Part ex prices

I'd guess about 800 - 1000 for a curvy

Re: The running thread.

Managed 3.8 miles tonight. I swear it felt more like 5 when I was doing it!


What do you guys normally wear to avoid 'friction burns' ?

Re: The running thread.

Didn't manage to get out at the weekend. The call of the drink was too strong.

Another 2.6 tonight. A bit chilly though!

Re: Removing Exhaust Bolts

Glad you got the bolts out! I had one snap years ago. Not fun


Is your oil cooler bent forward, or am I imagining that?

Re: The running thread.

Yeah that's what it felt like.

I'm just running on tarmac. I don't like running on uneven surfaces
