  1. once those ~Nikens are at £6k, im buying one. Awesome piece of kit.
  2. pick this basket case up just now: £300 with a new battery, loads of new gaskets, new camchain, a decent Motad Neta, spare carb bank.
  3. Went out on my EXUP for a couple of hours. Fairly slippery in places, although nothing too scary. Had multiple cars pull out on me, 2 seemingly on purpose/blatant; what is wrong with some people?
  4. 24k mile Panda 1.1 bags https://www.gumtree.com/p/fiat/fiat-panda/1363696413
  5. Took the head and barrels [which were 'well established' and didnt come off too easily] off of the Gamma, as suspected one of the pistons has nipped-up. I'll look at how scored the liner is tomorrow, might be able to rescue it without a rebore.
  6. Decat'd the ZX10R Replaced the huge and heavy cat box with an aliexpress linkpipe (£30). Had to get an adaptor, as the link pipe had an M18 lambda boss, and the bike's lambda is M12. Kept the OEM silencer.
  7. I service my NC700 regularly, but hadnt touched the brake fluid. So decided to do it today - not done an ABS bike before. Turns out it was easy - do the front using the top bleed nipple. Then do the link line that passes through the ABS unit by using the back brake pedal and the lower nipple on the front. Then do the rear line. What came out was shot - my fluid test said it had +0.5% water content(!). Hardest bit was the usual seized master cylinder cover screws, drilling out and digging around for screw added 10 mins to an hours work. 4 quid of DOT4 and 2 screws and that's done for another 3 years. Will have to do the Ninja's next. Might have to use purge mode on the ABS unit on that thing.
  8. 20L of 5w oil for less than £30 when you use the 'PRESSIES' code: https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_odkw=&_showdbp=false&_fsradio=%26LH_SpecificSeller%3D1&_saslop=1&_sasl=atozwakefield%2C bikeaholics_uk%2C numberworth%2C lubriagecarpartsaccessories%2C m_and_p%2C moto-central%2C swanseaharley-davidson110%2C tayna-batteries%2C ukkartstore&LH_BIN=1&_dmd=1&_sop=12&_sacat=131090

  15. The other day i started my ZX10R up, hadnt used it for 6 weeks. Started fine, but it was pissing with rain so i just let it cycle to temp and then shut it down (not a thing i like to do). Today got it out to go to Aber. Started it, locked the door, and then went up the road, immediately noticed the fecking oil pressure light was on. Turn around and back to home. Went inside and put it in the garage. My suspicion was the oil pressure switch had stuck on. Checked the oil level, it was fine, checked for leaks, nothing. Started it back up and lo-and-behold the light goes straight out [my suspicion was right]. Went up to Aber, a few bikes out. Still gave it the beans, slippy in places but nothing too bad. Came back and ordered an oil filter. Think ill change it anyway. Gave it a clean over with waterless cleaner - that stuff is the business. Then refitted the repainted crash bars to the NC and put a new chain on it.
