Bike Talk / How often for an engine refresh?
March 04, 2020, 05:04:12 pm
If you had a 1000cc jap sportsbike that has had engine work done (cam and valves re worked, ported and polished) and i believe an ECU remap giving more revs. It would be almost entirely for track days

How often should or would you refresh the engine? Ive never had a bike with internal mods so have no idea on timings nor costs.

Bearing in mind i am inters or slow advanced.....

If you had to buy a track bike for UK circuits, what would your choice be?

Would it be a 1000cc or a 600cc?

January 14, 2020, 06:49:27 pm
Does anyone know the cost of running a website? Theres a specific kit car website that has been down for years but holds pretty specific info on it. I was just curious as to how much it would cost to take it over and open it again? Its http://www.clubstylus.be/ for anyone wanting to know.

Im going to buy a low mileage 7r at some point over the next month or so. Does anyone know what front end is a reasonably easy swap? Ive seen some pictures of 7rs with Ohlins forks and Brembo calipers......which i like the look of. Any suggestions?

The plan is to make it look similar to the number 9 WSBK..

May 13, 2019, 07:16:13 pm
Well...i had my first off road day on 2 wheels at the weekend........and i loved it! Offthekerbtrailriding.co.uk down near Boxhill in Dorking.

1) where can a road legal off road bike be used? Any links to a datatbase?
2) What is a cheap but reliable bike to get
3) Apart from the bike and riding kit, is there anything else i would need?

Bike Talk / RSV4 factory APRC.....
November 14, 2018, 04:01:27 pm
Anyone had or ridden one? Ive seen a 2010 Biaggi rep with 1500 miles on the clock for £9500. Ohlins forks and shock, Brembo front and rear brakes as standard. It seems a lot of bike for the money, albiet an 8 year old bike. Ive always had inline 4s and never ridden a V4.

Any views or pointers?

After selling all of my bikes i am having a clear out over the next few weeks. For the time being up for grabs are

Berik 1 piece leathers LS1-7932. Size 48 UK. Im 6'1, 16 stone and stocky and these fit me perfectly. If you are any bigger or heavier, they probably wont fit. They need a wipe down but are in perfect condition. Cheapest ive seen these for after a quick google search is £395 (im willing to be corrected). Forum price of £310 collected from Aylesbury. Id say £15 for delivery and i will refund anything if its cheaper

Arlen Ness 2 piece leathers. Jacket is 48UK and bottoms 38UK Bottoms have a small foot peg hole in the bottom of the right leg but is covered when you wear boots. Again it needs a wipe down. Quick google search shows them at around £150 so £100 collected from Aylesbury. Again £15 postage and ill refund anything if cheaper. SOLD

Wolf racing goretx 2 piece suit Sized XXXL. These are big! I used them to put over leathers for winter riding when i had no option but to ride in freezing conditions. Im 6'1, 16 stone and these are still big. With leathers underneath, track bottoms and a hoody over the leathers, then these on top....these fit. Ive no idea what model they are but think £70 collected or £80 delivered is a fair price. The collar has rubbed against the back of my lid so some wear to the collar.

Spidi thermal winter gloves. Sized XL. Nice and snug for winter riding. £10 collected, £15 posted

Any questions then let me know.
Bikes For Sale / ***SOLD***
July 26, 2018, 04:58:10 pm
Its time to sell my Gen 1 ZX10R! I plan to use the money to put down on a new 2018 ZX10R so will still be part of the family

Its a 2004 C1H road/ track bike package. Ive owned it since 2012 and used it mainly on road but done 4/5 days on track (still cant get my knee down lol).

Its got 18,479 miles on the clock and comes with a V5. The mileage probably wont rise unless i get time to put an MOT on it.

Shims, major servicing and set up were done at around 14,000 miles by DWR racing in Aylesbury (ex BSB racer). New chain and sprockets fitted in 2017.

If you want to use it on the road with track body fitted, all it needs for a daytime MOT is the rear plate fitting.

The bike will come with the following upgrades...an Ohlins steering damper, Akrapovic carbon slip on exhaust, ZX14R calipers, Bar end brake protector and also included are a Dynojet Quickshifter  and Power commander III (If i get time i will put them on as the were removed as i was going to sell it as standard)

It comes with track bodywork fitted and also with road bodywork and anything else i can find for it. Off the top of my head the Spares include.....

Headlight x 2 (1 is mint and the other has a lug repaired)
Rear light
OEM front road fairings (blue) As in the pictures
OEM bottom fairing (black)
Fuel tank (blue)
Rider and pillion seat
Chinese seat fairings
Chinese top/side fairings
Brand new Dunlop qualifiers (New and not fitted)
Spare track seat unit in green
Spare track seat unit in black
I will get some pictures added.

Ninja price £2500 and a pack of chocolate hobnobs for EVERYTHING listed and anything else i can find

The bike is in Aylesbury, Bucks.
