    Been a rum year again so far

    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

    Been a rum year again so far

    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

    2002 Fzs1000 died while riding.

    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

    XJ900F Tyre choice and size

    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.

    Would you believe it.

    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

    Help and advice needed

    Hi there. Always try the simplest and cheapest possible solution first. Try to nip the bolts up a little. I guess that you mean from the head gasket.

    MT-07 gearbox problem?

    I guess first port of call is the clutch adjustment. Check that and adjust as per the owners manual etc, then try again. Its always best to start with the simplest, cheapest, and easiest possible solutions. Your next stop will likely be the clutch area, sometimes an oil change can do the trick, again, simple and not too expensive

    What a F**king day..!

    Got to agree. Driving standards today are shocking, complete loss of control by the authorities, test unfit for purpose, motor cars too big and powerful, too many distractions, no-one prepared to wait or give way. Drivers compelte ignore traffic lights. Ive noted over ecent months that motorists at junction 25 on the M1 (suppose its the same everywhere) dont watch the lights that are in front of them, they are watching the next set around the island, when they swithch to amber they move off before their lights turn to amber. It happens at all of the slips, result is there is hardly ever a gap to pull into.

    New Exhaust recommendations please

    Yes people do. Dont think there are many Virago owners on here. I have seen aftermarket exhausts fitted to them, and to be honest, I think the stock system looks better, plus you may have to faff about with the carbs, and on a 28 year old bike, the exhaust studs may put up a fight

    Sold the Virago

    Superior to the mirrors. No blind spots or wind noise/buffeting. Gonna ride like this now

    Sold the Virago

    Update time Alex. The kit arrived, instructions very basic, but easy enough for anyone with a little knowledge to install. Ive just installed the basic parts ie one rear camera and the monitor, just to see if its going to give me what I want. Camera is connected to the rear light feed for the live and earth, then plugged into the screen. Fired up first time. Kit also includes facilty for charging the screen battery via the bike, and a front facing camera (exactly same as the rear cam). Been out with it a few times now, no mirrors on and removed the riderscan. Camera scan angle is 140 degrees. I can now see whats directly behind, and as the cars slip off screen they come into view at my side. Only down side is the screen image is reversed

    Yamaha xvs 125 dragstar air filter upgrade

    Likely to change the air/fuel mixture, which may lead to you requiring to work on the carb to get the mixture correct. Unlikely to give any significant performance gain
