Bazzaz qs4 problem

Any go to bazzaz dealers on this isle. Have one that’s not working. Box is lighting up all wired correctly. Switch working. Must be the control unit. Probably just be told it’s as cheap to buy a new one anyway but no harm finding out

Tank Respray

Tank Respray

Recently bought myself a k6 gsxr 750, the bike in general is very clean, having only had one previous owner and being an Irish bike with low miles. The issue is the previous owner seems to have been quite fond of clipping the fuel nozzle off the tank and has taken 4 or 5 small paint chips out of it.


The bike is yky blue which rules out touching up as its a 3 stage paint process on top of primer. Looking for recommendations for a professional job to be done respraying the tank. I’ve sourced the oem tank decals from suzuki which I’m told are put on before lacquer, just to make it more of a pain in the ass job to do.

Any garage that can replace wheel bearings over the weekend?

I bought a Koyo wheel bearing kit, but it turns out I can’t remove the old bearings myself. I’m looking for a garage that can take the old ones out and install the new ones.


I’m in Dublin, but would travel to surrounding places.

2.5L Rocket III Stroker

Thought ye lads might like a bit of hardcore pornography :lbhbh:

After 8 months lead time, my stroker billet crank with welded on gears, and Carrillo H beam rods landed today.

This will be the 1st increased displacement Rocket III engine in the world.

The new Rocket 3 is 2457cc, but that’s a new stock engine. This will be 2472cc, up from the stock 2294cc.

It’s so nice i don’t want to put it in an engine :lbhbh:

I'm having some trouble getting it nice and firm..

I’m having some trouble getting it nice and firm..

So much so that the wife complains that her hand is sore from pulling on it. In fact, despite our best efforts we have only managed to get it half as hard as it was before. You can imagine our frustration, having pumped repeatedly while simultaneously tweaking both the right and then left hand nipples, it still refuses to become fully rigid!


I am of course referring to the front brake lever of the Busa (tokico 4 pots, not the much maligned 6 pots of yore) Having rebuilt the calipers and spending over an hour bleeding the brakes it still isn’t close to what it was. I did bleed the banjo bolt at the master cylinder but to no avail. I’m about to leave it overnight with the lever pulled in and secured with a cable tie. Is there anything else I mighy try that doesn’t require specialist tools?
