Re: To sat nav or not to sat nav....that is the question..poll

All of the above.
Done with map taped to tank,
Used phone
Used phone and headset/earbuds
Used Sarnav

Out of it all I like the raw Ness of nothing but
Sat nav for convenience especially abroad.

Re: Jumping out of gear - Yamaha FZ6

Sounds like worn syncro,
But check chain tension and clutch adjustment first if any.

Re: Questionnaire Response :)):

Almost seems that the forum has gone a bit too serious and scared a few people off,
(The laugh and dare I say "banter" of 2/3 years ago has softened up a bit)

It seems as some of the people are selling there bikes we are not getting the next generation into biking.

Re: Are you F**king kidding me!!!!

I was more getting the vibe you were saying it took this long to get motivated to change the tyre since rttb to get the tyre changed.

And was saying would have done it in an evening after work so could have had a legal tyre fitted a few weeks back.

Re: Are you F**king kidding me!!!!

Rob you know you could have always dropped the tyre up to me and could have swapped it.

But I blame moose anyway.

Re: Clean air filter could add 5hp!

Do you still have the cat in?

The lambda sensors usually will correct for the extra flow of a race filter without mapping.
If you have removed the o2 sensors or got a faulty one then it could go lean but that is a rare situation.

Re: Clean air filter could add 5hp!

Routine maintenance is always top priority.
At the end of the day the bike should be 100%.

Re: CBR600rr - rear tyre recommendations

Ron haslam liked to run the Bridgestone t30 evo. But they have released the t31 so t30''s can be sourced cheap. (£185 pair delivered) touring compounds but can still run with the big boys The s20 and s21 are available also but are the softer sports compound. Metzeler m7rr also worth looking at. 2500...
