Re: New GSX-8S announced

Well at least it hasn't got one of those mudguard hung off the back of the swing-arm arrangements!:rolleyes: (I've yet to see one of those that looks half-decent on any bike IMHO!)

It's not...

Re: Smile of the day - What is yours?

Presumably today's news raised a smile for Gary, given his recent post in GOTD (http://forums.sv650.org/showpost.php?p=3138496&postcount=10827)? The thought of that made me smile anyway - cheers! :)...

Re: Hello again......

Well I recognised it instantly - see my sig! :D

Looks quite good in that pic, actually. I like the concept.

Re: Yamaha conundrum

Hmm, not straightforward - a victory of fashion over function it seems :confused: (The old naked SV has circular captive rubber grommets on a more rudimentary bent steel frame that similarly fits...

Re: 2019 onwards AL9 front pads?

Agreed, I also wonder if the four pots would be any better in the real world or is it mainly marketing spin?

Re: Yamaha conundrum

I presume the bottom o-ring will take care of itself due to the relative direction of fitting of the stanchions and the 'ears', with only the top one is troublesome?

So, perhaps best to take off...

Delete a few of the intevening posts and no-one would ever know there was a typo mistake in the first place.;)

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Yes, disappointingly my general bin gets a bit more bagged waste than I'd like from time to time because doing the best thing has been made nigh-on impossible in practice.

Yes, and I find it...

Re: other forums

Only very occasionally. Sometimes it's useful for general awareness topics that can be transferrable to any bike.

What I find more sad is the general de-camp to Facebook and the like, which tbh I...

Re: Autopilot

I agree completely but the principal problem is that introduction of the terms "Full Self Driving" and "Autopilot" both reasonably conjour up an expectation that the human doesn't need to be doing...

Re: Tyres for 1999 SV650 for first time rider

Tyre choice is always an 'opinionated' matter.

Re: OMO - electrical advice

From what you've described, this would be my expectation too. Not the best practice in the world, but not necessarily dangerous. As you say, a full electric cooker will be too much for a 13A plug ...
