    short ass people

    Im only 5ft 1 and i had the 650. I now ride the 950 The 950 has a longer pullback so im not sat as upright as i was on the 650. I did buy a riders backrest for the 650, but i wasnt fat enough for it to be of any use! I couldnt sit far back enough inthe seat for my back to be on it Have you looked at handlebar risers? Or longer bars maybe?

    Gutted but glad

    I'd like to get some of these people who wear jeans and T shirts and trainers etc to the prosthetic and orthotic clinic im at at the mo just to see what effect even a slow speed smash can have. It ranges from folk wearing orthotic devices to help them correct deformations caused by one of their joints twisting in the wrong direction or fracturing thus causing them long term trouble and, in extreme cases, flail limbs - to full amputation of limbs caused by infections sustained from gravel rash and severe tissue, muscle and tendon damamge etc.

    Glad to hear you're ok honey. And you're right - people dont think they will get hurt in a low speed impact. 3 years ago my friend lost his arm in a 30mph smash after a myopic bint pulled out on him. He was wearing all his bike gear, but the speed of both vehicles combined and the speed his body hit her car when he was flung off resulted in his muscles and tendons in his shoulder and upper arm being torn off. Bascically his arm was severed, and only held together by the skin. His leg was also shattered and he spent months in hospital. If people don't wear the right gear then its their own fault IMHO - and just plain stupid.
  5. Looking in folks gardens! thats where i found these 2! There was a GSXR750 there too but he wont part with that ...... yet oh and..... Wedding has been postponed for now

    cant spell

    Some people cannot spell - FACT It is wrong to chastise people just because their spelling may not be up to your standards - i am sure that there are many things we all do that folk do not like, but we tolerate them. However - i CANNOT STAND people who type in so called "text speak" There is no reason for it whatsover other than sheer lazyness. Its not cool - it just makes the author look rather stupid.... PS: Don't any of you even THINK about replying to this post with "text speak"..... they don't call me the forum mistress for nothing.......

  14. Why thankya kindly For your photos either resize them (theres loads of free online resizers out there - just google) or upload them to something like photobucket. Once in photobucket copy the IMG line and paste it into your message
  15. A hypercharger gives the carb more air which equals more power - of a fashion. If you are going to fit one yourself you need to re-jet the carb Basically they are just a really fancy air filter
  16. Carry a set of spare fuses with you Graham. My 950 is a 2009 model but ive always got spare fuses with me cos you never know honey. If its running fine now youhave replaced the fuse, just see how you go. If it does it again, then look for otehr things that might be causing it. But as i said, carry fuses. I have a spare set under me seat just in case
