  1. I might be wrong then, a guy i used to go to college with when i had my dt had a pre 04 model and I could of sworn it had an e-start. Nice to see you around again by the way.
  2. if the chain came off and was wrapped around the front sprocket it shouldnt have been hard to push and shouldnt have locked up the rear?
  3. How did they get bent?! As long as they arent creased you will be able to have them straightened, shouldnt cost that much. A slight bend will be fine.

    Washing a bike!

    Use something like muc-off, let it soak in for a few minutes then pressure wash it off. Pressure washers are fine as long as you dont blast your chain or any bearings (Like wheel bearings) with it.

    Meme challenge

    This is going to be a good thread haha
  6. I got pulled at Matlock last year for a slightly small plate, was the size just under the normal size. He let me off with a warning but i just use the full size plate now, I cant be arse with un necessary agro.
  7. If you want fast itl have to be a rage comet, not cheap but at 200bhp with a zzr1400 engine its not slow! Being realistic i dont know sorry. Im sure they made one with a fireblade engine too which should be reasonably priced on the second hand market.
  8. But the pre 2004 models also had electric starts but were called the DTR. The newer model is the DTRE post 04
  9. I frequently ride 150 miles going home on the R6 and dont have a problem. Youre young, youll be fine! Make the most of whilst you can.
  10. Planet Rock replaced Kerrang this year, sucks i know =( Its still on the tele though
  11. You might be right Noise but I wouldnt be surprised if he does come back, theres already been talks of him entering as a wild card this year.
  12. Niice! Would be awesome with some supermoto wheels =)
  13. My dt was always like this, you had to catch the revs just right otherwise youd lose 6th gear amd have to knock it back down to 5th. I think its because the dt has pretty high gearing, once 6th catches the bike would fly!
  14. Looks really tidy, good choice. @corrieboy could i see yours on the r6? Iv been tempted by one but im not sure how itl look (i dont mean to thread hijack btw sorry!)
  15. I like that, looks much more comfy than my r6 haha
  16. So 4 riders per team seem to be on the cards? There was talks of Stoner coming back, surely itl happen now. Also this must mean a factory Yamaha for Cal and surely something for Redding? http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/news/motorcycling-motogp-allow-four-riders-per-team-143524045.html Interesting how Honda manage to make things work to help themselves again, I didnt realise it was so obvious until I read the thread about no more 2T bikes.
  17. Youll be fine, it took me a while to notice the spelling mistake...
  18. Looks like you can only buy them new for the mt direct from yamaha (according to akros site) http://www.yamaha-motor.eu/uk/accessories/index.aspx?productCode=SL&redirect=false You should be able to find them on there. Im sure a Canadian dealer could sort you out with some.
  19. Iv not seen any of the big four producing off road bikes for a few years now, not in this country anyway because of all the emissions.
  20. I think its only the European guys now that make 2T such as KTM, Husky and Husaberg etc. The DT will go up in value in around 10 years time but I dont know if it would be worth holding onto. I know the TDR 250 is pretty valuable now and would be worth getting hold of one if you can, also an rs250? I sold my DT RE around 5 years ago with 14k on the clocks for £1900 so they still seem to be depreciating at the moment.
  21. This looks like a great fun bike, I just hope its not going to be a commuter! They dont have a key ignition either do they?

    Weekend in Cornwall

    Dont get me wrong, just because it was a long way away doesnt mean i didnt ride it, i still needed to get my bike down there for uni! Lived in Falmouth for over 3 years, some amazing roads down there.
