  1. I'm sporting a trimmed 4inch beard with 13 tats going from my fingers up to the top of my arm, only ones that really hurt was the fingers and just inside the arm pit. Best way I find growing my beard is keeping in clean and use beard oil. I use grizzly bear beard oil from boots and plain old savalon for after care for the tats. Still got more to do to finish
  2. Merry Christmas to you all from the noise family, hope you all have a good Christmas and a happy and prosperous 2017.
  3. I was looking at the bulldog before I bought the xjr looks like a lovely bike! What's the ignition barrel like? is the key a bit sloppy inside or hard to take off the steering lock? if so maybe when you accelerate the key moves ever so slightly and tricks the ecu that your in start up mode again thus triggering the sweep.
  4. British transport dept take note, a 2" diameter pot hole shouldn't take 7 men, 45 cones, 4 weeks notice, 6 mile detor and a bag of gravel to fix.
  5. Out of curiosity what was the size of the standard jet you took out and what size did you put in?
  6. Again, did this problem start after you fitted the new pipes???? no point confusing yourself with compression tests and wasting money on test gear if it ran fine before you fitted the pipes as this proves that there is nothing wrong with compression to start with.
  7. Didn't it run ok before you fitted the straight through pipes and re jetted? If so then this problem is something that you have given it. Most likely you have re jetted wrong and she is running too rich and is bogging it down. the rear cylinder will look in better condition to the front as it is protected by the front pot and your legs so doesn't get nearly as much shit n crap from the road. The only way your know if it is a new pot is by taking it apart and checking the tolerances.
  8. Tell ya what tho they are the best £22 I've spent. today I thought I'd wear my new winter gloves which soon become painful to have on. so being a bit risky I took them off and even at a tad over the national........... (open to imagination) I had zero wind chill on my hands and it was as if I was riding with my hands in my pockets. will definitely recommend them. but not riding with no gloves.
  9. O yes, today wasn't as fun in the rain, wet weather gear (builders jacket and pants) worked great but hands got proper wet n cold so I've fitted a set of bar muffs to keep em dry n warm for the winter. Next will be tassels n studs.............haha
  10. What I mean with it being top heavy, it's when your pushing it back into the garage you feel it more than the 600 bandit. It is better with a full tank in the bends tho, but to be fair it's not a massive difference.
  11. This thing kicks the teeth out of the gsf, I can only comment on the 600 tho as never ridden the 1200 so wouldn't know what they are like. But here is how think they compare. 600 Bandit: good bike, goes like stink but all the fun is at the top end and not much at the bottom thus you spend most of the time screaming the tits off it. Great handling and flows into corners brilliantly. Light and nimble which is good for manual handling and they are a nice low commuter. XJR1200: Fantastic, oodles of low down grunt, long drawn out gears that seam to never end, you can simply chuck it in top gear and cruse down the road on tick over at 60, but then open its throat to go into full hooligan mode. Cornering is a doddle and it sticks to the black top like shit on a blanket. Tad on the heavy side when at stand still or general manual handling tho. Very top heavy with a full tank too.
  12. She's here and after taking it to work I have to say I should have bought one sooner!! What a bike, stick it in top gear, 60mph and only pulling 2.5k revs, sit there and relax....... Open her up tho and holy dogs dangles does she pick up and bugger off down the road. Some blemishes on rocker cover Just under 50k on the clock Nice race can.
  13. Could try taking spark plugs out and letting the pots vent for a hour or two. To be honest I've never actually flooded a motor and couldn't tell you a "good way" of doing it. But thinking logically about it, venting the pots would be a good and cheap start.
  14. Dose the throttle work and spring back as it should? Did you replace or remove / meck about with choke cable? Did it take some effort to get that fecking nipple back in the hole thus you lifting the butterfly up n down? If so you might have flooded it.
  15. Take a picture of where the old one goes. Or just make a mental note. Take old one off and put the new one through they route the old one was. Hardest part is getting the fecking nipple back in the carb lifter
