  1. Wemoto are as good as any, also M&P, then Yambits, Fowlers. No shortage of suppliers. Mudguards/fenders, try going to the Stafford Bike Show at the end of April, youll find all sorts of stuff there. Solid struts (hardtail), its your choice, but on Englands roads !!! Its like theyve been carpet bombed
  2. Hmmm. Interesting. Thanks
  3. I was having similar problems a while back, didnt want a tailpack as I struggled to get my leg over the added height, tank bag stops access to the filler, so I bought a largeish leg holster, it takes all the daily stuff, phone/cash/discklock/keys. Depends how small you can roll up the waterproofs
  4. Try having a look on the cmsnl website

    Yesss!

    Hope so. 3 rideouts this last week, out for 4 hours today, got back home just after 4pm. Ashbourne, then the B5056, mile after mile of lovely B roads, and no traffic
  6. 3,000? I'll be lucky. Only rode 1,500 last year on the fazer, and 300 on the virago. Sold the virago last summer cos it just wasn't being used, and i'd really rather let someone have it that would. Since I retired, ive found that I have even less time to ride. Odd, really. First grandchild on the way too, ill struggle again this year. Didn't help when my youngest broke her leg and I had the four horses and dog to look after though
  7. Looks like it passes over the carbs and under the tank, so maybe connect onto the carbs at the rear perhaps/
  8. After 3 years, I would try a complete clean out of the fuel system, tank/filter etc etc, then fresh fuel in
  9. As above, check the chain for stiff links. Also check the sprockets for hooked teeth, make sure the front sprocket is secure on the splines and the wheel bearings for wear. Is that a fazer? Early fazers had a problem with the front sprocket coming loose, they replaced them with a deeper one
  10. Yea, we did have a good un weather wise. I love it, wife hates it hot. You can imagine the disagreements, fans on/off, windows open/closed, too hot to cook etc etc, salads day after day
  11. Started of ok, plan was to buid a summer house down the bottom of the garden. That was kicked into touch as my youngest (33) got thrown from one of her horses and broke a leg. The old man had to step up and spent the spring/summer looking after 4 horses and the dog. Thankfully, shes now almost fully recovered. The accident meant that my plans for half a dozen trackdays had to be abandoned, so the recently fitted full fairing and power commander never saw track action. However, I did manage to get 2 days at Donny Park, one in sept and one in oct. I was dead lucky again with the weather on both, and had 2 smashing days out. The second was Leon Haslam trackday, and I went to both of his briefings, very informative about mass and balance. I cant claim to be anything special, just an old man trying to have a bit of fun, but I will say to anyone whos not been on track before, try it, its an absolute hoot and youll meet lots of great peolple
  12. Always start with the simplest, easiest, and cheapest checks first. Check for spark at the plugs, check that your getting 13 to 14 volts at the battery at around 3000rpm, no more than that. Go round the bike and check all of the earth conecttions are sound and clean
  13. Pretty much any sport touring tyre road tyre from the major manufacturers shoudl be fine. There are plenty of reviews available on the web. Asking for recommendations sometimes starts a tyre frenzy with every tom/dick/harry recommending soemthing.
  14. Wow, thats gotta be a toughie to take when youre in your mature years, with a lifetime of bad habits. Chin up, once youre into the regime/lifestyle, youll become accustomed to it. Ive several in my family/relatives T1 and T2, those that have adapted you cant really tell a difference, the one that hasnt is constantly having secondary problems. Stick at it and neversaydie
