  1. Thats still a gamble with your money, cos you wont know its in working order till its on the ace. If its an original one, its likely to be 20+ years old and will require a service (if it is serviceable). The Z series YSS for the ace (MZ506-345TR-11) is adjustable for preload and rebound. I believe the originals were also adjustable for compression. I haven't looked, but I suspect you could have a replacement Nitron, adjustable for all three, for 3 times the price of the Yss. Unless you're raggin the Ace on track, that may not be cost effective.
  2. Trouble is buying a used item is it may be as bad as the one you currently have, so thats money down the pan. As for servicing a 23 year old shock, you might struggle to find takers and that may cost as much as a new replacement. A quick web search revealed a YSS new one for £250
  3. Have a good Christmas all
  4. Yes. The Classic has a longer front mudguard/fender with a flared end, the custom is much shorter.
  5. I had a similar problem a few years back. Fractured my lower spine, and found that I could no longer ride the Virago750, as I felt every bump up through the spine. Sadly, I sold it and bought a bike with a more forward riding position, which solved the problem for me as the spine was no longer straight upright and the "load" could be taken through the hips.
  6. Those nations with oil under their land will continue to extract it. Can you ever imagine the middle eastern nations not doing so? It is there only source of finance, without which, the Sheiks wont be able to keep the lid on the various historical hatreds within their borders. Same for those with coal reserves. Its all smoke and mirrors. We'll continue to burn fossil fuels, but be taxed into poverty to due so, with the revenue raised going into carbon sink/cleanup/tree planting etc etc, just to stay where we are now. Lets melt the southern ice cap, theres an island underneath bigger than Australia, almost unlimited supplies of coal and oil just waiting to be dug out and we own a slice of it
  7. The info following is for the XVS Dragstar 125, cant think it would be dissimilar to the 97 Virago, but thE choice is yours to make CAMSHAFT SPROCKET BOLT: 2 OFF: M8: 26NM
  8. This any good? https://www.scribd.com/doc/95729057/Repair-XT250-Yamaha-1980-1983 Get any part nos you need from Fowlers, then search for those on the web if you dont want new
  9. Hmmm. Im a little sceptical too. Trying to tax us to stop using fossil fuels just as its all starting to run out anyway, cutting down the very forests that we need to absorb CO2 to plant palm oil trees to make ethanol, still building houses without solar panels, no plans to capture the water that falls from the sky to ensure consistent supplies in the anticipated hotter climate.
  10. Mines not a cruiser, but Ive a Power Commander 5 on mine 5 years, set up on a dyno. Not had a scrap of bother
  11. Might be worth checking compatibility with the E10 fuel, if that's what you've got in it. It may be buggering up the fuel system
  12. Shouldnt ride like that at all. When new the ride was reported to be "plush". Last ones were made in 2004, dont know how old yours is, but its likely the forks are due for a refresh. They would have been on the soft side as new. Check the swingarm pivot is not seized
  13. Try entering the registration number into the search box on the RS Paints website. It should give you all of the paint codes

  15. Travelling the bike on a trailer in neutral is unlikely to damage the gearbox. Occasional neutral to first problems aren't rare, many riders adopt the technique of slipping the bike into first while it is still moving (just before coming to a stop at junctions etc), because the parts are still rotating, it makes it easier to find first gear.
  16. Your electrical connections and earthing points need to be clean and dry. Charge the battery up fully, le tit stand and see if the voltage drops. Fully charged should be around 13 volts, if it drops quickly after charging its goosed.

  17. I dont think its possible to change the options as you describe without altering anything I believe that when you turn on the ignition, the sidelights and the nearside dipped beam will come on. The dipped beam will go off when you press the starter, then come on again when the bike is started, and stay on. When you go to full beam, the dipped will go off and the offside full beam will stay on, the reverse takes place when you switch back to dipped beam. Press the flasher switch and the dipped will go off and offside the main beam will come on. I think. But, bear in mind that many fazer riders alter both the wiring and the lamps (bulbs) to bring both lights on at the same time. Technically, its illegal, but gives better lighting for nightime riding. Id check the wiring out against standard before doing anything else

  19. Did you book one? I've not been able to log in on here for several weeks but all appears to be working again now. I take the point about sessions being red flagged, I've noticed there are more of them than when I first started trackdays, and I put it down to more riders having lap timers fitted onto the dash/bars than ever before. I reckon they ride around with one eye on the timer, trying to gain every available nano second at the expense of safety/courtesy. There's plenty of examples on Youtube of dodgy over/undertakes at corners. If I see a bunch gathering in front of me, I'll let them get further in front rather than take risks. Its my only bike. I was up there again in August and then again Sept 8th, that's it now for this year.
  20. Had a ride up to CMC Clay Cross, only to find the showroom closed. Had a coffee, then rode back home just keeping in front of the rain all the way
  21. If successful, thatll give a good gain in HP, but its a fair bit of work to do, and theres always the risk of failure. Youd need to notify insurance, DVLA. Id have alook at the CMSNL website and compare the parts numbers for the two models before starting, just to check compatability
