    bad vibes

    Engine vibes are common to just about all Divvie's and peak at about 4500rpm. Making sure your carbs are balanced will lessen it to some extent, but I found the best solution was to stay out of that rev range; when I had a divvy 600 I kept it at about 5 - 5.5k, fine in most situations, and good engine breaking too! Around town that was too high on the 900 though, so tended to hold 4k, increasing to 6 on the twisties.

    alarms

    The Accumen isn't a bad alarm, and there is an optional pager system (about £30) which is easy to fit and has a range of about a mile. Check with your Insurance company first though as to whether they recognise them and offer discount, otherwise you might want to consider a thatcham approved system such as Datatool, Laserline, Selca etc. Scotoilers are worth every penny - I have a dual feed system on the 'Bird and the chain so far has been adjusted just twice and has covered 4,000 miles!!
  3. I'd rather a stealth missile than a Suksooki Strop Pete! N - I wish hun, 12 stone soakin wet me! I wanted a 'bird for ages, just took a while finding the right bike at the right money, they do so much, so well! It'll be a little weird at first using it for teaching but then I used to use a Divvy 900 which is way heavier. The best bits will be To & from, and between teaching - it's been a long time, but I feel like a kid waitin for a new toy again!
  4. I don't bloody well believe it! It seems I was right, it is catching...............yep, I got a large dose of the forum virus and went out and bought a H*%da!! I can have no excuse, it MUST be the virus Ok, ok, time to own up. I actually bought it through choice, no, more than that, I've wanted one for ages! It's a cruise missile cunningly disguised as a Super Blackbird CBR1100XX, I'm picking it up on Friday and I can't wait!

    Bazz is back!!

    Thanks for the greetings folks but ..... WTF has happened to everyone while I was away???? It seems LC "came out" and now owns-up to straddling a poofta's tool, Nutty's living up to her name and gone right over the edge, and as for Pete, well..... I'm bloody glad I wasn't around, seems to me like some sort of Forum Virus that I might have caught! Hehehe.....it's good to be back!
  6. Dead handy for me Pete, must be all of 2 miles away!!! I'll make sure i'm not teaching that day - be good to meet up mate Is anyone else up for it?
  7. There are some lowering struts on E-bay at the moment, item no. 7976193884. If you use these you'll lose about an inch, but make sure you adjust the preload on the rear shock as well! You can get the front forks raised a little but I wouldn't recommend it as it plays havoc with the geometry - handling will be sh*t ! Best option is to get the forks re-sprung professionally, there's plenty of advice on FOC-UK.

    Bike MOT and DAS

    DAS prices can vary dependant on course/local competition. Some companies offer a set course 3/4/5 days regardless of ability or training needed. The company I work for refuse to operate like that as every student is different and needs training to suit, we therefore either assess at CBT as to further needs, or if the CBT was done elsewhere we do a 1/2 day assessment on a 125 which counts toward the total training, and allows us to judge the exact training needed to attain test standard. Our costs as a guideline are £60/£120 1/2 & full day 125, £75/£140 1/2 & full day 500cc. An average ability student would have probably one day on a 125, then 2 days 500 before test, but this does differ frequently dependant upon ability. Hope this helps.

    Favourite Road

    Yeah, i got a '98 S reg 600. It's not mint but quite good for a 6yr old machine. I don't get much time for rides out as I work all week and use it for instructing at the weekends. We have the odd ride out from the training school, but mainly as advanced training sessions! I signed up to FOC-U recently and am keeping an eye out on the events, Hartside's quite a treck from down here in Birmingham, but I'm trying to get the day off and will get up there if I can. If all else fails there will be plenty of future opportunities :wink: I use Bazz FZS600 on FOC-U, what's your user-name there?
  15. Hi :hi to the Forum! E-Bay is the best bet for second hand, but they do them new here http://www.gear4bikers.co.uk/index.html
