Richard

Our esteemed ex moderator and friend Richard Joyce is in hospital after having had a heart attack.
On his FB page it looks as though he is recovering well from having a stent.

Good luck and best wishes for a full and speedy recovery Richard
We are all thinking of you.

Re: Self Indulgence .....

Andy

That maybe so (and he was fast enough to start with) but he'll have to learn how to set up suspension properly now!
No more of this, and I quote, "eat more pies".

Re: Hi - From West Sussex

Don't bother with Dave's led lights changes :D - just save up and get an Ohlins (or other top quality shocks) front and rear Get them set up properly and ride around any one else on the road or trackday with the superb telelever front end. Best bang for your £buck there is. Lights and bling can foll...

Re: Krauser

Nice, but it doesn't have the Krauser 4 valve heads so the price looks a tad optimistic I think.

Re: Today I

It's over 45 years since I played rugby (for the school and county) so I have forgotten how great it was to be a gentleman behaving like a hooligan! So I tried to remind myself today, except it was on an official BMW test ride day at Rhug in North Wales. Unfortunately the roads were greasy with some...

Re: Indicators

My 2001 has them, but they do take half a mile or so (long time).

Re: Screen.

I bought a quieter lid (Schuberth C3) and when I put the bars above the yoke I added an MRA screen.
Wind still hits my helmet (6ft tall) but it is acceptable noise-wise with moulded ear plugs in.

Re: Hello from sheffield

Never had my knee down, but used to deck the cylinders regularly on track days and at the 'Ring. It will out brake anything and is so stable in long fast sweepers that you can ride around Super Sport 600's (on track of course). You just have to learn to trust it, as there is little to zero feedback ...

Re: Bar risers

Yeh mine are above the yoke too and needed new brake lines.
Best way to do that is a new banjo bolt for the master cyl which takes two banjo's, then only two new braided stainless lines, one down to each calliper - saves on some joints. They need to be about 4 inches longer than the originals.

Re: Bar risers

Search on here for bar backs. Also you can put the clip-ons above the top yoke by sliding the fork tubes up by 30mm or so. I think there might also be a street fighter type set of bars and new top yoke with bar clamps on it to take conventional bars or your "Vincent straights". Look under ...

Are you changing your advice now for suspension setting improvements?
You told me the answer was "eat more pies"!

Re: F800GT

Karl Paul Davies had one - may be along to answer soon and I have a F800ST which is very similar. As it is an underseat moulded plastic tank I would not see how it's capacity could be easily increasesd. They'll do 180 miles on a tank though, and if I was more careful with the throttle, it would prob...
