  1. another one for the Onkyo receiver, I purchased an Onkyo TX-NR509 last year and it has been great.
  2. I was only thinking about window tinting late last week.. will keep an eye on this thread but from previous threads I can remember Michaels name and also Scorpion Window Tinting on Main North Road coming up quite often.
  3. it's been a while since I had my 180.. isn't the oil filter reasonably low down on the engine? If it is up higher and the oil is settled then he shouldn't lose too much oil.
  4. well drain the oil into a clean pan and then take the filter off, replace it and reuse the oil - easy.
  5. 18-55 will work as a good all purpose lens. I would always recommend adding in a 30-35mm fast prime lens for any camera.

    The forums have been pretty dead lately. That would be a pretty shit feeling on bitumen. I had it happen to me when I was racing an enduro event on a dirt bike. Speed wasn't that high, maybe 60-70km but there was no bringing the bike back, and went for a nice slide. Have put a set of mufflers on order from JC Whitney in the USA they are Emgo 19" cocktail shakers. These will mate with the factory headers (1-3/4") and should add a decent amount of sound. Virtually straight through with a removable/repackable baffle. I will then replace the carb springs, change the needles and go up to 130 main jets (from a 125) and throw it on a dyno for a power run to see how the A/F's are (don't care to much about the power increase).' I was also considering the short slashcut which is what I have on the bike at the moment, but a 19" version, however I thought the cocktail shaker suited the Triumph style a bit better.

    saw this beast while browsing on bikesales.. wow! http://www.bikesales...id=138FBB1BBC79
  8. Samsung Galaxy S 4

    I agree with pyro and Chris.. Just looks like an update to me. The Sony xpheria or HTC One looks like the phone to buy. Not sure why you are defending it so much Antonio, did you design it? Or do you have shares on Samsung?

    quick video before work this morning... http://youtu.be/woF9gEKXlTQ

    Yeah it has the Triumph off-road (TORS) short slash cut pipes on it plus the intake mods. It's not overly loud on idle/cruising but has a nice bark on WOT throttle. Having said that I'll probably hole-saw out the restrictor plate out on the back end to up the volume a bit. I have stock pipes if it ever gets defected. Will throw up a video of start-up tomorrow morning on the way to work.

    The bike finally arrived over the weekend and I picked it up yesterday! On the downside I didn't realise that they had crated it in a manufacturer delivery crate and the front wheel, mudguard and handle bars were all of. Spent from 8-10pm last night putting it together and here is the finished result: Either way, its great to ride and looks literally brand new for a 5 year old bike.
  12. HTC One, best looking phone ever made? Reposted

    Depending how i feel about the iPhone 5S (currently on a 4S) this could well be my next phone, not having a sd card slot doesn't bother me. It looks much better then the mock-ups of the Galaxy S4 I have seen, plus it is smaller and made of proper materials not plastic. The last HTC phone I ever played with was my brothers HTC Touch Pro with the slide out keyboard a few years ago and it was f**king horrid compared to my iPhone 3, so I will definitely be having a play with it first (I understand HTC have come along way since 2009)

    I have actually reconsidered the whole black thing.. and saw a photo on the Triumph RAT forums the other day.. this is a 2010 model so different front forks to mine. The exhausts will stay polished and I will just powdercoat the center console (more to reduce glare), headlight cone, and speedo. And get some black mirrors and levers.

    Bike is now crated up at Team Moto awaiting pickup tomorrow by the transport company... the countdown begins.
