    Sticky: Re: 1100 vs. 1200 differences?

    Anyone have access to both an 1100 and a 1200 (the later the better) swingarm at the moment?

    I could do with a measurement or two of the bottom shock mounting bracket.

    I bought a used set of...

    Re: A good video to get the day started

    Yeah, all the Japanese manufacturers offered nice 400cc race reps as well as bonkers 250cc, four-pot, four stroke screamers. They only started pulling at about 15,000 rpm!

    Sadly they were for the...

    One of the nine meetings scheduled for this year (Skerries) has already been cancelled due to permissions being denied for spectator access. Road racing in Ireland is facing a lot of opposition, and...

    While the Irish are a strong contingent, with quite a few competing at the sharp end, there are plenty of nutters from further afield that make the trip over for the road racing season. The UK...

    Re: Sargent seat on DC craigslist +

    After filling in a few boxes it seems that it would be as cheap (or expensive, depending on your perspective on these things) for me to buy a new seat from Sargent UK.

    Hopefully the price is not a reflection on the quality, same vendor also offers the Vessel range.

    They also stock a 5 driver kit in the same brand as I/we bought. Price and postage is still very...

    I found a set (not Vessel) of four drivers on fleabay for 16/$20 with free delivery from Japan.

    They're on the way!

    Re: New Screwdrivers

    Sorry, what I mean is, do the Japanese manufacturers still use the sort of screw that these drivers are designed to fit properly?

    From your reply I'm going to with yes.

    Are these still a requirement to work on the "modern" Japanese bikes, like the ZRX?

    I'll never be as quick on my ZRX as you in your Miata, regardless of whether the road is sopping wet or bone dry.

    Started biking waaay too late in life to be any bloody good!

    Re: Billet Eccentrics?

    I'm guessing that the spool-on-eccentric position is used for day to day purposes & maintenance.

    If the wheel needs to come out, you unbolt the spools from that position and run them into the...

    Re: Billet Eccentrics?

    Alignment markings on the full circumference of the eccentrics was the only improvement I could think of.

    Sorry, nothing original to add it seems.

    Sticky: Re: ZRX VIN REGISTRY

    Mine is registered as a 2007, but it's obvious that the bike was bought new in late 2006 and registered in early January of 2007. So if you feel it is more appropriate to list mine as a 2006 bike...

    Re: =Need fast caliper rebuild info=

    But is the fluid seal seat perfectly square, or tapered, as the image suggests?

    I'm honestly not trying to start an argument. Not being an expert what I concluded was that the seal is able to flex...
