Yamaha Racing Success.

It's been a sensational year for Yamaha, with the MotoGP championship and the WSBK championship in the bag as well!

Back on top where we deserve to be!

Next year will be interesting!

Re: Replica OW01 Kit triples.

I've got a set of OW01 Ohlin's clamps on the way now as well.

50mm upper and 53mm lower? Dunno, they are due to arrive, next week.

Then next time I have a fist full of cash I'll do the replicas (some of each. Stem and collets should be the same... :crazy:

Re: FZR 600R project

Very Handy Dave.

Can you double check the number stamped into the headstock?

There must be something missing here as nothing is coming up.

Re: New family member

haha. it's deceiving. These are a very strong little aircraft. They are rated at +6 -4 g's In the positive that means the airframe will take 2 tons of downward pressure. At 6 g's my body weighs 6 times it's static weight (which is a bit these days :lolno: ) I'll be able to enjoy entry level competit...

Re: CycleTerminal

Great site, and some interesting stuff on there. I didn't know about them.

Are they in england? Covid may have something to do with it??? A couple of organisations I deal with here, have gone under due to Covid and the lockdowns. Shame really. It's taking its toll in more ways than one. Cheers

I'd love to have a 996 but doubt I could ride it given my neck and back problems.
Yeah, they're kind of brutal in that department Tim. I'd probably just settle for the old Ferrari next to it! :D
