Re: new to 4 stroke v twins heeelllooooo

Welcome and enjoy the ride.

These engines perform best between 3500 - 7000 Rpm. Don't lug the engine as it can cause premature wear to the crank.

Re: Tank slapper

Get rid of the preload on the back shock if you have a shim fitted.

Re: Popped my v twin cherry !!!!

Since I fitted my full race system I sometimes get that. I did a full sync and idle drop and still occasionally I get a loud backfire.

I am thinking that I may have worn emulsion tubes ?

I can put up with it as the bike performs flawlessly otherwise. :thumbup:

Re: What's up with the bike? - take two

In the video at the start as you give the bike a few revs it appears that your throttle housing is rotating on the clip on ! Is the housing loose ? Tighten it up and stop it rotating as this causes the cables to work against each other . Also check that the cables are locked in place at the carbs. A...

Re: Hi all

Welcome to the forum,

When you look at the bike again check the rear suspension for any squeaky noises by sitting on it and bouncing up and down on the seat.

The rear suspension bearings are an often overlooked maintenance item and if run dry can be expensive to replace.

Good luck :wave:

Re: Happy Hatch Day Big Jim

Hey Jim,

Get out there and throw a leg over the VTR.

When you've done that have a couple of drinks .

That's what I did on my last birthday !

Have a great day. :thumbup:

Re: Steering Stem- the weak link

Before I did my USD I experienced flex in my front end under very hard brakes with CBR F4i calipers. I fitted a fork brace and the problem was almost gone, not completely but almost. I have a CBR600rr lower triple now and it is much more substantial than the original storm but uses the original size...

Re: a bit of spondoness.

Fabio, Post a pic of the rear seat lowered and also a sound clip please . I have to hear those pipes. As you probably know I have a full race system with a shotgun setup and brand new Micron carbon cans and I can't help but wonder how it sounds compared to yours . I am so envious of you right now ! ...
