Aprilias do it too, something to do with the type of metal the clutch master cylinder is made from.
Look at changing the pads and the MC, i know a feel guys that have done just the pads to Brembo Z04s and noticed a big difference, calipers and MC have totally transformed the brakes for me.
Picked up my award, presented by the trials Legend Mick Andrews.
Peak classic trial club award for 2nd in the clubman twinshock championship 2017.
My first year in trials, Beat the champion 5 times from my 10 rides
Put battery in the K1300R - think i should be ablet to go for a short ride today, temps are around 6C and should be 8-9C after lunch. Still snow on the side of the roads but should be alright.
Now to work out how to set the clock on it, manual says go to bmw service :/
edit: went for that ride - was glorious, thermostat hit 13C! Amazingly my bike kept the time/date even with battery disconnected for >1month. I'm amazed BMW put an RTC & battery backup somewhere!
Found the cause of my low (almost no) compression...
Yep! That'll do it!
Spent the weekend razzing round the mountains in Mijas (near Malaga) courtesy of the Adventure Rider Centre. Epic fun despite the wet, and without doubt the best riding company I've used. I feel the need to get my KTM 200EXC running again now...
Haha! Yep, Jesus. How many miles has it done?
Chinese steel is not what it once was
How the previous owner did not notice the drop in power, I do not know.
It was sold as not-starting on it's own, but apparently it would bump start?! He actually rode it like that from his garden to my trailer.
Rebuild it with an 80cc or 160-180cc kit.
Only on a CBT So its getting a standard rebuild at 125cc, but using some slightly higher quality parts.
I will however be looking to up the CCs on the Monkey Bike once this is out of the garage!
My mate had a malossi 180 kit on his YZF and it said 124cc on the cylinder.
Weather was great at lunch time today. Allowed for a more sporty style of riding
Stuck a nail in the rear tire... tire warranty for the win! (The shop told me to do this, don't panic)
Brand new Bridgestone RS10R rear tomorrow, current one is spinning up all over the place
As I was reading this heard someone hooning, sounded like an IL4.
I've been riding like I'm looking for a ban the last couple of warmer drier days
I'm curious why a nail falls under warranty for a tyre? Was it particularly small or something?
Most disappointing upgrade of evAr. When I used to tune mopeds going from a 50cc to a 70 or 80cc kit was a massive improvement, the 180cc 4 stroke kits are incredibly tame (and asspensiff) in comparison. I do like how Malossi lie on their parts though, cheeky buggers.
Yup, I heard similar. There are 110, 88 and 70cc kits for the z50a. Also, because they are so tiny it makes the power to weight ratio a lot more appealing.
Almost all the kits have 49cc cast on the cylinder Too!
I just looked at how much those things go for, you'd be nuts to even consider modifying it! Nice little asset that, and fun to boot.
