Technical and tyres
Getting the bike ready for its first mot under my own servicing and noticed I'm missing a brake line fixing bolt and nut. This bolt keeps the front brake line attached to the mudguard via a little metal drop down frame. The problem is I call it a brake line fixing nut, God knows what it's really called to buy a new one. Anybody know what it's called or what size nut and bolt a ybr 125 2006 and I'll grab one.
I've only seen one of these... (could've been the 125, though) not very old, but had been restored ........ so don't know what the quality is like.... but they do some cool looking retro bikes....
Have a look at the different bikes here..... If you've been biking for a while, you may recognise some of them...
LOL, I wear one too in bad weather,
You can also buy one same as mine here.
And please don't make a law about it, You can wear the hell you want.
I have my 2nd attempt at mod 2 tomorrow. My first attempt I stalled off a creep and peep and dropped the bike... cue being left on the side of the road Even more annoyingly I only had 10 mins of the test left to go and until that point had only picked up a single rider fault (slightly too close to the center line).
The reason for the post is to see if anyone has any advice on how best to do the creep and peep as this seems to be where I come up against issues. One thing i'm not 100% clear on is do you start the turn on the creep, or always creep in a straight line?
Thanks in advance for any wisdom you may be able to send my way!
Buying and selling
Hi there, I'm new to the forums but looking for some advice on what to get next. Currently have a 1990 ZZR600D but looking for something a little more modern come January.
I have narrowed this down to a early-mid 2000's Yammy R6 or a early-mid 2000's Kwaka zx-6. Mainly looking to find out from people who have owned either of these things like riding position, comfort ect...
It will be used near enough everyday for commuting and distance journeys (400 miles) on rare occasion.
Any insight given will be much appreciated and thank-you in advance.
