Snakes on a motherfucking plane…

Can you take rearsets on a plane in your travel suitcase or hand luggage?
Or would security take them from me?

Dont fancy having to pay 40 euro to stick them in the planes cargo hold.

First off (hopefully the last)

Category : General Bike Chat

First off (hopefully the last)

Came off the Viagra this morning on the way to work. Approaching a roundabout, not paying attention and braked too late/hard, back wheel locked up (I think) and the bike went from under me. One mirror is fooked, and I’m a bit battered and bruised, but I’ll live.
Probably preaching to the converted here, but pay attention lads, the road is VERY unforgiving if your mind starts to wander.

Cheers,
sombaht

service and reg plate

hi

just about too buy a bike 05 bandit but there is no service history and since being my first used bike id like too get it fully serviced up and checked over as il be taking a gamble on its condition.

what is normally done and what would it roughly cost for a full service ?

no tasking the piss on the full service lads :biggrin_old:


#2- the bike is quite rough so id like too get it a good cleaning.

i see there is a valeting company in ballymount are they any good too put a shine back on the bike ?


#3- where could i get a reg plate made of it ?


thanks lads

:bikerie:

Vfr 800 vtec not starting. Ideas? (With video)

Vfr 800 vtec not starting. Ideas? (With video)

Bad earth? Reg rec? The buzzing sound is coming from the low beam relay.

I had this issue previously and it sorted itself when I took all the relays and block connectors apart and cleaned them. At that time I noticed that the connector from the stator to the reg/rec had melted (common fault on these apparently). So I replaced that block connector. No issues since then!

Last week I started the bike and left it running to keep the battery charged up as I haven’t been using it that much. Went back outside after a while and she was dead, plenty of fuel left. Key still in the “on” position. I couldn’t get anything out of it so assumed the battery ran down? Charger won’t charge the battery, says it’s full. The battery was replaced the last time I had this issue, only a few months ago.

I have noticed another supposedly common issue with these, corrosion of an earth wire under the left side fairing. I’m awaiting to reroute that earth.

Any other ideas?

Deauville 650 (2002/2003)

Whats your thoughts lads?


I hopefully need to get a bike to commute on the M50 to a new job in the next week or so and due to me being a very old 36yr old I want something comfortable with panniers and fairings thats low maintenance and as hassle free as you can get.


id love a VFR but the clip ons will kill me back.


any opinions on the honda or suggestions on something else?


2k max budget

Gravel Church St Dublin

Be careful, some prick dumped gravel on Church Street. It’s at the mouth of the junction with the quays on the centre line, so anyone filtering up to the lights will hit it.
