Re: What bore is the carbs on a VTR 1000?

I am pleased at how the Multistrada footrest conversion has worked out, it brings the foot pegs forward quite a bit and should achieve the riding position I was looking for. Just about to rebuild the brakes... the fronts are fine and the pistons came out easily, but t...

Re: What bore is the carbs on a VTR 1000?

I wanted to change the colour of the rear spring from yellow to red, and tidy up the shocker… which meant getting the spring off! its no easy task as its VERY strong. I drew up a couple of plates on CAD and sent the drawing to the laser cutter… few days later these came. made it an easy and safe jo...

Re: what have you done to your "bike" today

Are there any interlocks (or fuses) that stop the engine firing but still allow the starter motor to turn over? I'm not sure on this as my bike is wired differently, but does the bike still turn over on the starter with the kill switch turned off :?: Chris. No, kill switch off and the starter motor...

Re: RAM AIR effect

The smart question would be "wonder if the extra air would overcome the shortage of air in the airbox when you time the engine 180 degrees out, to get a fully functioning big bang engine". It wouldn't be possible until you got a bit of speed up, of course. I like your way of thinking Tony :D May be...

Re: Finally arrived yesterday!

Yellow is the best. Apart from red, that's the fastest. Sprocket nuts have come loose and jammed the rear wheel up in the swingarm. Dealer I bought it from boasted a '52 point check'. Angry phone call in the morning, this could have been a lot worse if I wasn't only doing 50 Are you sure it's the s...

Re: Finally arrived yesterday!

Think it's because I posted from my mobile, flipped my images around haha! Good to know on the pairs, maybe it just needs a bit of a tune. I am thinking about replacing the cans though. Kent is a bit of a ride for me but thank you for the offer! I'm sure I could do it myself but it'll take 5 times ...
