  1. I had this thought after lending out my stock exhaust the other day. every so often the men in blue do a nasty on us and give us a defect. sometimes we need parts to get over the pits and back on the road or clear a rego inspection. I thought it would be handy if we had a thread where people could post up parts theyre happy to lend out (or rent) to people to clear defects and rego's. So can Dusky please make this a sticky? I have to lend/rent stock S14 exhaust stock S14 airbox and filter stock S14 suspension hope this catches on and we can help each other out.

    Nah the cone weave. I kicked over two cones and put my foot down. Realised id been practicing with short cones my foot goes over instead of knocking over so when I did the real thing with proper witches hats I kicked them Vic Ps test sounds like a piece of piss.

  11. Australian Motorcycle Expo

    Im not even in Vic and tempted to drive down for a look. Should be some good stuff being launched and Ducati have promised a surprise. im hoping Diavel.
  12. Zumba

    My wife did it twice. I bagged it for weeks beforehand but she still went, reportedly there were men in there but they looked like whipped husbands. She doesnt go anymore, back on the kettlebell. Its like a dance version of the ab swing. Anything that promises FUN + WEIGHTLOSS + LOOK LIKE A MODEL = millions of women buying in.
  13. General chit chat thread!

    The Hyos plenty of fun to ride, craps all over my ZZR250. I dont think ill get tired of it on my Ps as its plenty quick enough and handles/stops well, cheap to get parts for etc. I looked at a Suzi SV but couldnt get the extra cash Its insured for 3k more than I bought it for so worst case Ill have an 'accident' and get something else.
  14. General chit chat thread!

    Sell it on the quick after I get my Ps and get what? a Ninja 250? Only other LAMS bike that interests me is the Suzuki SV650 but thatll be an extra couple of grand over what Id get for the Hyo (maybe 7k) read through the Hyo manual and 'wiring' is not covered under warranty. But I did get a free tow so total came up to just over $300. Fuel got in the oil via the breather pipe in the airbox, no biggie now its fixed and wont fill up again.
  15. Bike recomendations

    None taken Backing what everyone else says, Im on a LAMS 650 and am itching to derestrict it on they sly.
  16. What gear do you wear while riding?

  18. Cleaning and lubing a chain?

    i dont have a centre/rear stand. Any suggestions how to get the rear wheel up safetly?
  19. General chit chat thread!

    OK so Joes have fixed it up. 3 issues found. 1. Main fuse shorting. Cause: Reg Rectfier wires were kinked and touching causing the short. guessing due to constant lock to lock one the bike they stretched and kinked. 2. Air box filling with petrol. Cause: 'big lump of crap' in the fuel rail. Would also explain why my FI light has been blinking at me for the last week. 3. Oil polluted with fuel. Cause: i forget but they changed the oil so thats an extra $50 Total damage: ~$400 including the tow. Im going to check if the reg rectifier issue should be a warranty job. Dont much feel like paying for that given its
  20. General chit chat thread!

    Yeh it wouldve been warm. Parked it in the sun on the tarmac. I think somethings let go behind the headlight in the front. Its def shorting on the chassis somewhere and it looks pretty tight in there and all the slow speed lock to lock stuff probably tugged something loose.
  21. General chit chat thread!

    They offered me one of theirs for $100 for the rest of the day. Just got off the phone with Stay upright and itll be $100 to rebook the course or I can just do the test at no charge (as ive already paid for it) I didnt really get anything out of the morning so im just going to do the test when I get my bike back, rang the shop and theyre looking into it this afernoon. Fingers crossed it something obvious.
  22. General chit chat thread!

    Well went to get my Ps on the weekend, booked the whole day course. Practiced for 2 hours in the morning and then went off for a 30 mins break. Bike was performing fine. No noises, issues, lights etc. Parked it in the sun and came back to do the test! exciting! Turn key, flip kill switch. Bzzzzzzzt. Nothing. No dash, no lights, no power. Nothing. Pulled the seats off to get to the battery and fuses, battery OK, connections fine, Main fuse is blown. WTF? OK no prob I have a spare. BZZZT. gone as soon as I contacted it. OK.... root around a bit more, press some plugs, wiggle some wires. Last spare.. BZZZT. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU (doesnt quite cover it) So I had the option to use one of stay uprights bikes for the rest of the day (at a cost of $100!) or rebook at another time, refund and stuff yet to be determined. Id BETTER get a refund out of it, seriously! Anyway, I called Joes Motorcycles (Hyo Dealer) and they came and picked it and me up and its being looked at today. Given the bike has Fingers crossed I get a call back today.
