  1. sure I saw one on ebay the other day. Quite dear though for 2nd hand, about 60 quid. Hope this helps and I hope he's not the one who just beat me to a set of spot lights on there. lol OGRi
  2. Hi Guests, At time of writing there are 49 of you mooching around on this site. Is this some kind of voyourism thing that you are doing? or are you interested in joining our happy little group? It's not like the Masons, there's no rolling up of trouser legs ( although you might come across a few pic's of one of our ladies showing her tat's off.) and as long as you don't want to buy or sell something it's absolutly free to join. And we accept girlies too! Infact the more the merrier. So don't be creepin around out there come and join in ( even if it's only to tell me to mind my own [email protected]"in' business ) there's some good people here and they'll even offer advise on problems ( bike related not matromonial ). They might even help you to keep that Harley on the road! if you ask them nice. We're all on two wheels after all is said and done Sign up and lets have a look at you. OGRi
  3. Sorry to hear you got caught mate, quick question though, were you caught by a camera or a cop? because if it wasonly by a camera then don't confess to anything! you wern't there. It wasn't you and it wasn't your bike. I seem to remember something about you have to be cautioned on the day by the plod for it to stand up in court. Check it out with your brief first. Best of luck. OGRi

    Old leathers

    old fassioned, inexpensive remmody for stiff leater. Piss on em'. Scientific fact is that the ensimes ( should be a G in there some where) in pee are great for softening leather. I shit you not!

    Nodding bikers?

    Guess this means that we're a bunch of nodders? Up our way a nodder is another name for condom

    Favorite record ?

    MMMMMMM could be killing in the name of ( rage against the machine) cos' I'm sick of people tellin' me what I can an' can't do all the [email protected]!kin' time these days. Used to be denim and leather (saxon) back in the 80s cos' it reminded me of turning up to one of their first uk gigs ahhhh good times. Or maybe the boys are back in town (lizzy) or.......... to hell with it if it rocks it rocks! I love em' all!!!!!!!!!!!!
  7. Hi Guys ( sorry an' Dolls ) Been riding my 125 Dragstar for a while now, we've all discussed ways of beefing her up a little and I've come to the conclusion that because I'm 18 stone and as wide as a barn door we are only going to get a top cruising speed of around 60 out of her ( don't want to hurt her by wraggin' her engine so it's time to look for something a bit bigger). I can't afford to take my test at the momment and to replace the current bike I would have to use the cash from her sale to pay for the next one. So after talking to my friends we can't get a firm answer to one particulare question. If a motorcycle is less than 33bhp can it be ridden on a learner leicence? I know it's not the answer to "life, the universe and everything" but there is a 400 Dragstar waiting in the wings and it could have my name on it for a very reasonable price. Does any one know the difinative answer? and if YES then is anyone looking for a 125 baby draggy or is it back to ebay again? lokking forward to your witty replies as always. Cheers OGRi
  8. Great find! I now can't make up my mind if i'd be better off new or not so new. but I think I can work that one out on my own. Cheers for the help. OGRi
  9. Thanks for the help. Much appreciated.
  10. Oh mate this is getting confusing!! I've just been talking to a friend and he reccons that a rectifier is a rectifier so long as the pin outs and voltage are the same. He does recoment that the larger the surfave area of the heat sink the cooler it will stay and that the larger the bike it's off, the better it should charge the battery. Also after looking at the site you directed me to, the lay out and appearence of the 1100 is identical to the 125! AND they're all the same price. In conclusion what have I learned tonight? They're all the bloody same unit right accross the XVS range and all that matters is whether they will fit in the slot next to the battery. The only one that appears different is that of the 650 which also appears to fit the R1, R6 and most other Yamahas. It's octagonal in shape and I think it's a pattern part. Great detective work mate! now I shall go to the ball! PS it now turns out that he's got one in a box some where in the shed............Typical!! Many thanks for your help OGs
  11. Once again Oldtimer thanks. It's been running on the existing one since I bought it and I was having troublr tracking it down to model. I had an idea that it wasn't the original, saying that now as I've had a propper looksee, it does look as if the last owner has been having a play around with the wiring in general so I'll have to check everything out from scratch. Once again thanks for the help. OGGs
  12. help rectifier needed for xvs 125\250. The part number is sh678-11. I've got the egg run on the horizon and the damb thing has died. One of the connector spades has sheered off right down to the base so I cant even get a bit of solder on it to get me through the run. If anyone can help I'd be most obluiged obliged obblijed? any way I'd be made up. Many thanks in anticipation. OGRi Just been hunting around on ebay. There's a SH650D-11 regulator rectifier pattern part there obviously for the 650 version, but does anyone know if it would be ok for the my little 125 draggy. It has the same number of pins and the voltage is the same. Any ideas?

  14. PS you could always swop it for a celtic baby draggy
  15. Hi, I was looking for ways of getting round the expensive side of custom upgrades. I'll include some pics when she's finished. Bought a really nice celtic knot belt buckle on ebay for around a fiver and mounted it on the air filter box. That was the start of the celtic theme for my xvs 125. Next came a pair of celtic knot key rings, dosen't sound too exiting eh? drill them out and attatch to your bar ends and the theme continues. Next bought some decal sheets which you can use in an ordinary ink jet printer. Make your own custon decals! you can use any picture you like. There's loads of bits and bobs around that arnt dear or even made to be fitted to a bike. Have some imagination. Get some cool mirrors from one of the Chinese manufacturers for between 10 and twenty quid. But most of all don't forget to watch what Orange County Choppers are up to on DMAX. The world dosn't have to evolve around Highway Hawk , go made and spend 20 quid on an engraving kit and DIY a master piece on your heads or casing. BE DIFFERENT OR YOUR BIKE WILL LOOK LIKE EVERYBODY ELSES !! Once she's finished let us all have a look at what you did. Best of OGRi
