Rotors, these are pretty hefty and very thick compared to the stock ones on my bike

the forks have a custom axle made to centre a triumph t599 wheel that i have, the problem is the calipers are to far in so i need to get 2mm machined off of the caliper body but my dads work can do that, also waiting for the yokes to arrive as i have had the sv stem pressed in to the RSV yoke, then i need to get brake lines and a trail tech vapor speedo so thats what i need to order next

so thats where i am with the sv at this moment in time :D

so did you get cash in hand for the accident that wasnt your fault, and how come it wasnt your fault anyway? you drove into the back of someone. i mean think about it, if a car drives into the back of you on your bike you mean it's not their fault? I think it is myself, you might think they were not concentrating, too fast, too near...or am i missing something here?

yup your missing a big part of the story lmao, it was my dads car that i hit,we were going down a hill and he was draging his brakes i was costing he slamed the brakes on and skided to a dead stop because of a oncomming camper and a narrow road in devon, so i wrenched on the brakes locked up cut the bike out slid a few Metres then the front griped fliped over the front of the bike and hit the roof of the car and the bike carried on into the car, so was nothing i could do and nothing my dad could do so was just one of those things, the police just asked who was at fault and we sead no one and because we are family and we agreed that no one was to blame thats it as far as the police were concerned .

Did it not occur to you on that narrow Devon lane that something might actually come the other way?

If you continue to think it was not your fault, then every time you go down a lane like that you will no doubt crash into the back of someone ;)

i deed i did but lane was not even narrow until this one point where there was a concreat block on one side and a house and curb on the other my dad even though that he could get through until he got very close so did the camper driver, and we were going less than the speed limit by about 10mph, and i was within safe distance but my delayed reaction because the brake were already on because he was already braking made matters worce

im not making excuses, but thats what we can peace to geather from what happend, i blacked out and dont remeber going over the bars just falling down the side of the car but it was obvious that i went over the bars

after having read through your posts that is the third low speed off you have had on your bikes and non of them your fault?i think i have to agree with oldgit its about time you stopped making excuses and took some of the blame,perhaps you need to take some more training just because you have passed your test does not mean you are a competent rider.

you list an immpresive list of mods you have done to your bike but no mention of a restrictor kit,as your on a restricted licence at your age have you had one fitted on this bike or did you just not bother the same as with your other bike or maybe you feel you just dont need to as your such a good rider.

only just seen this, and ill bite,

1) so it was my fault there was a large (disco) 4x4 slap band in the middle of the road, when i came off on the MT was it? i had two options, 1 hit brakes 2 hit said car head on as it was in the entrance to a car park straddling both lanes, i could not see the car. i took option 1 hit brakes and front washed out and i hit the deck.

2) it was last year in the bad ice, was leaving collage to go shop 20m from where i parked theres a pedestrian crossing so i stop as some one walked across, directly after there is a sharp 90o corner i pull off 5mph or less i get to the corner back slides right to the side left hand side (right hand bend) bike goes down, my fault ?

3) tight narrow road road, following car on a damp road, car trailing brakes as its down hill in to a corner im rolling under engine braking, camper van on coming, car in front hits the brakes as both car and camper have miss judged the gap (house one side concrete wall other) i dont see whats happening until i see the car suddenly slow down i hit the brakes harder and harder front locks, i slide in to the back of car i go over roof and down the side of the car, was traveling at 40mph ish in a 50

so

1) if i had not hit the bakes i would have hit car. i dont see this as been my fault or bad what i did, would have been more of a mess if i had hit the car would it not?

2) could have happened to any one

3)i think i could have stopped if it was dry but it wasn't so couldn't/didn't, i could have possibly let off and reapplied brakes but when in the actual situation shock sets in. police didn't think it was my fault nether did the camper driver weather you do or not whats happened has happened and we learn by our experience if it was or wasn't our fault

ohh and to answer your other query yes i do have a 33bhp ECU and yes it is in the bike at the moment, it wasn't on the mod list because its not a mod.

and back on to the original topic

finished
