    I don't see why you'd need to remove the swingarm to replace the chain

    I'm in the same boat at the moment, except with a Thunderace, so probably somewhat heavier than yours. Suggestions so far are: 1/ Suspend it. 2/ Turn your footpegs upside down and use axel stands under them. I'm currently considering both options (together)...

    XJ6 N 2009

    Hi all, Just joined! Anyway my bike is a XJ6N and been in the gararge for a couple years. Main issue is the chain as it had snapped. However I put in a new battery and some petrol and it started straight away, so quite chuffed. Im looking for some advice. To replace the drive chain, I will need to take the swing arm off, meaning it will be challenge to keep the bike raised so I can do the sprockets/chain. Does anyone know of any good means to lift the bike with the swing arm off? Ive had a look and got some ideas but maybe someone here will crack it :-D There seems to be little
  9. Yea, I think it sounds great. Look on utube for Trident howl and turn the sound up
  10. thats a lovely looking bike jimmy. does it sound as nice as it looks? i saw one of the new Triumph Tridents in Lyme Regis last week, along with a new Rocket and a Thunderbird i think it was? looked a bit Harley like.
  11. Last week
  12. Yes, the whole bike is stock apart from the pipes and end can...
  13. No booze last night so a wee 105 mile jaunt on my 1975 Trident. Stopped in Largs for a photo and tea Edit, eventually sorted
  14. i try to make the most of any good weather, you never know when it will come to an end in England! this is why i go out early in the mornings. im usually up between 5 and 6am, so i can get a 2 or 3 good hours in before the roads start filling up. and by then my old joints are usually ready to call it a day anyway are you still on the stock rear suspension?
  15. THUNDERACE!!! I've not been out on mine all week, I'm waiting for bearings for my swingarm to turn up (I currently have a hardtail Thunderace! lol). Sadness...
  16. Same here, did 380 miles last weekend,, not going out this one, ,as tourists a plenty ,
  17. Sounds good. I've heard a lot of track days this year were like moto3 and seen some quite bad accidents so I was a bit worried about the mixed groups. I reckon I'll get an evening booked!
  18. Nice picture bud. Unfortunately I was hungover today so the only bike action was 3hrs cleaning one
  19. the only time ive leaned a bike over that far is when we've parted company on the road
  20. enjoying the good weather. had a bimble along the roads in the New Forest this morning. lovely scenery and some nice twisty bits. light traffic before 9:30 too where have you been on yours?
  21. hello.. greetings and respect from istanbul.. I am a motorcycle trader in Istanbul. I need help with something. There are 2006 model two xt 125 R and X in my showroom. The speedometer of both motorcycles fluctuates. When I opened it, I saw that a chip was chronically broken from its solder. The code on the chip is not read. If I ask you to share the picture of the electronic card inside the LCD speedometer from both sides. According to this code, it is much more convenient to insert chips. Thank you in advance for the information you provide. Please send the pictures to this address. ozd
  22. Two groups, novice/inter and inter/advanced. Seemed to work fine, because it was evening, I got the impression more riders rode there than van/trailered. I was in novice/inters, there were some very fast lads in it too, and a couple of instances of dodgy over/undertakes, but all in all just about right for me. Inters/fast tended to be litre plus/track type bikes. Only one red flag in our group, and the marshalls had the black flag out to a couple of riders early on. Plenty of room in the paddock too. One group on, one group off, so only 20 minutes between the sessions, four sessions each group
  23. Time Left: 10 days and 17 hours

  24. I was thinking of booking an evening next month. What were the groups like?
  25. Did an evening track session at Donington Wednesday 9th, nice and ry, first since last Sept. Rusty riding at first, disturbed the gravel a little, but smoother in the later sessions.
  26. I'm with bemoto. 3 on one policy with all my NCD and then another one a separate with mirrored no claims. 600 all in I think
  27. A guy called Rafal does them to order in Poland. I have his engine bars too
