    Have you had your gen 4 delivered? Or did you get a v4s as a stop gap when waiting for the BMW?

    Re: Wtf !

    You could probably claim it on insurance? But with excess and rise in next year's premium, might not be worth it.

    Re: I have rejected my bike

    That's a shame Noxx, and a big disappointment for you.

    I think you are doing the right thing, I wouldn't want my local garage rebuilding my brand new engine/gearbox. Hope they will look after you...

    I had the Mrs out on it this affa, and brakes feeling mush better with the extra weight. Obviously not going fast at all, but tried braking pretty hard, when the road was clear, to see what it would...

    57 degrees is very impressive!!! Think I was only managing 54 or 55 at knockhill last summer. Mid 40s is the most I ever normally see on the road.

    That's just it Alex. I've never really had the ABS activate with the k3's. Not riding any different. When ridding fast on the island roads, it's quite normal to have to brake fairly hard for sheep or...

    His CBX looks good, with a stupid wide tyre (think it's 280 or 250), billet rear wheel, custom made swing arm and z1000 seat unit. It also sounds brilliant with the 6 open trumpets on the carbs.

    Re: Michelin Power RS

    It would make sense if it was low tire pressures, the heat today would of meant higher temps/pressures, so that might be why they were feeling better. It was that hot today, my mates bike went on its...

    Re: Lightec adjusters

    I'd maybe put a wee dab of loctite on that. Probably no need, buy don't think it would do any harm.

    Great day out getting used to the RS's. 25 degrees, and chilled out riding with my mate on his custom cbx thou. What a noise off the 6 cylinder.

    Mine are at about 32 front, 29 rear. Scorcher of a day here, and faith fully restored in them, and scrubbed in. Now just to hope that this won't be summer over in Scotland!

    My plan for today is to go out for the day and try and build confidence in the set I put in mine a couple of months ago. Due to work I've hardly used the bike, this year, but the few miles I've done,...

    Has anyone had any analysis done on their used oil, after a track day, or even after 12 months road use?

    Out of interest, who has factual evidence this oil is better than the rest? Anybody ever had any lube oil analysis carried out?

    As said above, always best practice to replace both sprockets and chain as a set.

    If there is tight links I would change for new, without hesitation. The results of a chain breaking could be fatal...
