Re: From 107 to 126

Looks great. how much lower does that yoke go down the fork leg than the standard yoke ? I'm guessing the top of the yoke is the same height as stock, so looking at thickness. I'd consider it for the race bike but due to the VFR headstock being a fair bit longer there's less available travel for the...

Re: FI light non starter

Lots of things it could be, has it got an alarm or imobilizer, there could be a fault. could be the sidestand switch, kill switch, clutch switch, battery problem. there's lots of stuff to check and test. a multimeter will come in handy along with someone with good electrical knowledge.

Re: Race/track day van

I have a semi high roof mid wheelbase transit, cost more than £5k 3 years ago but it is top spec and has 140hp so no troubles pulling with 2 bikes in. I sleep in the back and use big cushions that have a cover, I use them to wedge between the bikes and side of the van then when the bikes are out i t...

Re: Op Track Storm 2019

Cut off is 1995 for PS track days, they do allow later 90's bikes but you need to check with classic bike trackdays, they should allow the Storm as took mine out for a session with them, the only trouble is they say bikes later than the cut off Have to be road bikes, ie no track only bikes or track ...

Are they less power? She feels pretty quick if a bit heavier. Specs say 110hp standard?
Same claimed power as the Storm, they tend to make high 90's at the wheel, Storms generally make 2 or 3hp more. either though can be a good or a bad one :thumbup:

Re: My Anniversary storm for sale

Rules say you need to put a price.

Pictures would help as well.

What are you looking to get to replace it ?, I have a mint (as in as good as new..really) Yam FZ1 Fazer with low miles, I would sell or px. there would need to be a fair bit of cash my way though.

Re: Water Proofs ???????

what ever you get go and try them on over your leathers and sit on a bike, I've made the mistake of not doing that then finding out you can't zip the legs up as boots and knee pads pull them tight when you sit on the bike. I have 2 piece and they are still quite bulky when rolled up and take up spac...

Re: Your top speed

Saw 160 on track with slightly altered gearing which makes the speedo inaccurate and read fast. standard engine, Arrow end cans, dynojet kit and k&n filter. On a standard geared bike they run out of puff about 150mph, the last 5mph takes a while so not worth hanging on really, realistic on a stock b...

Re: Returning my Carbs to standard?

I'd just fit standard jet sizes if your making it all stock with the pipes and airfilter, leave the DJ needles and leave the slide holes and give it a try, it'll probably be ok. Setting the mixture not so easy as to adjust them on the bike is barely possible, I'd try 2 turns out and again see how it...
