  1. If youve the money, try to get genuine a OM part, certainly avoid used electrical components and youve no indication of previous usage/age/condition. Just be doubly sure that youve no faults on the bike that will wipe it out the moment you switch on
  2. Looks like part no 4jh8196001, superceded by 5sl8196000. Looks to be readily available
  3. Aye, I have to be mindful that its my only bike now
  4. Had a blast. Bit apprehensive in the first couple of sessions, but settled down ok after that. Definitely rode faster than novice group, like Finnerz says theres a good range of abilities and I was towards the slower end of the group but by no means embarrassed. The higher overall speed meant I could keep flowing better. Missed the final session as absolutely knackered and didnt want to risk it. It was packed full, and on track were Dean Harrison and Ron Haslam in the fast group. I could count road bikes on one hand, all the others were trailered/vanned in, along with all of the gear that goes with em, race bike/track bikes, some wonderful machines there. And me on the humble fazer. Next up is an evening trackday session sometime in June July, probably another in August, the the Road Bike only day in early Sept.
  5. Had another super day last week, novice group, blessed with decent weather again. Ive booked again for next monday, intermediate group this time, not sure if itll be too hot for me but going to give it a go
  6. Very posh. Is the bottom pic up by the airport?
  7. No point going for a used one, likely to be in similar shape. High end ones are likely to be £400-£600, budget ones £200-£400. How about having the existing one rebuilt? Part number is 4TV2221030, original equipment is likely to be hard to come by
  8. Whats the mileage? I think that'll be fuel injected, not carbs. Easy enough to do if youve got the equipment. Always start with the simple stuff first though, plugs/filters etc, make sure the chain tension is correct and lubricated, if the fuel is more than a couple of months old, dump it and put fresh in
  9. 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
  10. Hmmm. Interesting. Thanks
  11. 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
  12. 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
  14. 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
  15. Looks like it passes over the carbs and under the tank, so maybe connect onto the carbs at the rear perhaps/
