    Thread Starter: merv

    Okay I'll start the new year's thread this time to save jellywrestler doing it. So Alex Marquez is now confirmed as Marc's team mate at Repsol Honda. It will be interesting to see how he goes in the first tests later today as he hasn't really set the other classes alight like his older brother...

    Why change your oil?

    Thread Starter: rocketman1

    Has anyone tested a bike that has been serviced regularly with oil changes against one that hasnt. Have I been brainwashed to think I should change the oil regularly. I have read of some riders that never change the oil, in their bikes or cars and it does not seem to effect their performance...

    Yamaha RZ/Banshee build

    Thread Starter: el chupacabra

    Hello, long story short after years of owning RGV250s and having a couple of seizures chasing performance i decided to hack up my frame and fit a set of banshee cases i got from the states knowing that they had more potential for a lightweight race bike.

    Cool bikes you would love to own but probably never will

    Thread Starter: HenryDorsetCase

    I'm gonna need that Norton Manx frame you have sitting in the back of your shed. And the running gear. In fact just take the motor out of your Manx and send the rest of it to me. I also need a Kawa 500 triple motor.

    '98 Suzuki FX 650 Freewind.

    Thread Starter: Bonez

    What would one pay for a '98 Suzuki FX650 Freewind that is in general good shape with a few minor scrapes on the right front cowling with say for argument sake 60,000s up. Rego/wof up top scratch and good multi purpose tyres fitted. How easy are they to get parts for? Say a center stand for...

    Big ups for service in Whanganui

    Thread Starter: Blackbird

    Just got back from a 2100 km tour of the north island tied up with attending an IAM conference in Porirua. Setting up the chain tension on the 790 Duke is a bit tricky but thought I'd checked it ok with the small extra luggage load - they're a bit sensitive to that. Anyhow, after going through...

    Cafe Racer Mods and WOF

    Thread Starter: crashalots

    Hey all. Sorry if this is covered elsewhere, I couldn’t find a thread. Share if you know of one. I’m converting an old GSX twin into a cafe style and I have a list of “like to do’s”. Would any or all of these mods fail a warrant of fitness to an already registered bike? - forks lowered...
