    The stock C has one little trick , that is a small recess behind the main part of the combustion chamber - this means an air gap to the water cooled cover alloy.

  2. rego new bike in NZ

    I'm heading back to NZ in December and will be wanting to register and ride a 74 Z1 900 I sent back home earlier this year. What's the go with registering older bikes do I need to do full rego or is there a cheaper option, I'll only be in NZ about a month a year for now. Also who is the best Insurance company to insure an older bike with?
    Cheers Kojo

    Rule book is online - hard copies can be bought but is a pain in the arse, people don't update, carry an old book, don't carry it etc. Online is good. But people actually need to read it.

  4. Restricted Practical Test Auckland 2018

    Hi guys,
    I have been riding motorbike for 10 years oversea, and just got the Learner licence in NZ.
    They say there is two options for a Restricted licence that go directly from learner to restricted, and go through CBTA.
    What would you recommend?

  8. My Honda CBR400RRn NC29 Project Bike - Clock and Fairing Stay Restore

    While I was busy working on stripping my fork down for the project CBR400RR NC29 I of course need to order parts and so during that downtime I was busy working on the clocks, lights and front fairing stay mounts and brackets for the bike. The brackets were in an abysmal state as you can see here:
