Re: What motorcycle mags do you read?

Any chance you could go through your collection say 87-91 and scan out any FZ-fzr articles? Especially race-bike related articles... Doohans FZr750 win at oran park? post season bike tests? lol. Sorry spook, but after massing several hundred bike magazines over the years I decided to have a clear o...

What motorcycle mags do you read?

I must be starting to show my age these days cause my favorite bike mags are Classic Bike, Classic Motorcycle Mechanics and Classic Racer (they all have articles of those wild bikes I learn't to ride on in the '70's). I've been buying Two Wheels every month since 1973, but that's more a habit now ca...

Zol, why don't you post up a build thread here? I'm sure it would be of interest to many who visit. Cheers

Re: New Rear Sets for our FZR's

Marco Melandri knows all about peg injuries too, I think it was Rossi who managed to stick his footpeg through Melandri's foot a few years ago. Personally I prefer non-folding pegs as I find they allow more leverage moving around the bike with out the risk of them folding up, this has happend a few ...

I need some new socks!!!!

Yup, exactly what it says: I need some new socks. You see, I bought myself a nice pair of AXO Lancer boots a while ago, and they fit great but there is one proble that won't go away, they chaff my legs after a while and it's getting to the point that I'm avoiding wearing them. http://www.youtube.com...

Re: Past and Present Toys

I know what you saying there spook, I test rode the T500 and couldn't believe the amount of low down power it has, well, it would have after the TS125 I had been ringing the neck of for the previous 6 months. The first bike I ever rode was a friends stripped down 1950 Royal Enfield 350 single bush b...

I'm pretty sure there is probably another thread along these lines, but, what the hey, it's always fun to remember past glory and dispair. Ok then, I'll start with the most embarrasing first, a, '84 XLX Harley Sportster, bought from a friend with a blown gearbox bearing and broken primary belt in ru...

Re: The History of Yamaha Technology

Kiwi wins, sorry Spook, much more bling. Nah, just moving pictrures, and like the written one that spook put up, I notice they side stepped Yamaha's disasters as well. 100% agree on the pro-American stance, but, they've always have been good at cheer leading and you can't really hold that against t...

Re: New Rear Sets for our FZR's

Gidday wannabe, Everythings a bit on hold at the moment as I'm putting all my time into getting a new business venrure off the ground, so the next six months will be fairly focused on that. Having said that, I've got my name on another FZR750 and have a spare EXUP motor under the bench, which will b...

however my mind keeps wondering what Buell might have been capable of producing if his resources were similar to what Britten had available to him Um, I don't think so Jon, have a look at this clip for a bit of back ground info on John Britten http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QM_aNwaodd4&feature=...

Re: The History of Yamaha Technology

I don't know where you find this stuff spook, but keep it coming :thumbup: That's a good history of some of Yamaha's technical triumphs (5 valve head, EXUP valve, monoshock), and some of their epic failures (TX500/750). Great reading, and it bought back a few memories of the yammies I've had over th...
