Plus side, i got my knee down enough to shave the slider
This is the most annoying / frustrating / pissed off outcome. Still, all my bits are still attached
you can buy just the end cap
Thanks @dave the rave the cap, banding and rivets was on order by 0930 this morning. OCD is a shit to live with so it just has to be repaired
sounds sort of like what I did to mine, didnt have much pride, and i still dont really know what i did, but wet muddy road, some gravel, and it had diesel on it. also about 10 mph, probably wasnt smooth with the power, especially since i had only done a few hundred miles at that time.
I also have a shaved knee slider too from it
I dont know what it cost me to fix, I never added it up, could be anything from £300 to about a grand lol
I counted up £380 and thats not counting the seam I will need repaired on my leathers. I skidded on the stitching so will need to get them looked at
Hopefully it will learn me to be more careful but I have been whinging about the throttle being on / off which is why I am getting it remapped but the guy cant do it till January which is ok as Im heading back to work next week and wont be riding anyway
I thought the throttle was twitchy on mine, but i think i just got used to it, because i dont seem to have issue with that anymore.
my leathers just acquired 'character'
Quite often a consequence of having too much money!
[Kudos though, when it's the result of hard work and sacrifices!!]
well, now u make me feel like a show off knob!
also, i have no response, or argument for what you said lol
My right arse cheek has acquired plenty character but fortunately that wasnt near a seam (on the leather before you think it ahahaha). Maybe some boot polish will blend away the chaffing
I thought that, but its sort of faded with muck from riding, think im on 8000 miles now, I didnt want to use boot polish to find it marking walls, furniture, bedding, whips, canes, victims clothes etc
Sorry to hear of your off.......and in comparison this is so tame it almost seems rude !
Installed a seat cover, yes a seat cover, that is it ...
I went for a ride this morning, new tyres im sure feel better now they dont have a ridge of fear around them!
it was a bit busy for me to get any speed on corners, but I def felt comfortable on it again, and filering a lot more is fun. I think the key is not to stop, just keep going
Managed to take this one this morning too
I’m happy to say I managed to save my Akra with some spares, patience and numerous foul words when it was not complying
Some GB engine covers have also been added
Just waiting on the bar end to complete the repair
thats a gorgeous looking bike
actually, i think im in love with all fireblades, my age and older especially
just tells me that I bought the right bike, when I see other blades and think, id love that, then realise I have one!
Great recovery @LRJimmy . So fortunate to have not marked the actual can body.
What brand grips are on your tank? They look rather subtle and might inspire me to give them a try.
They are Eazi Grip
I see on the Eazi-Grip website that they're now doing an R & G by inserting a friggin' logo in the 'cut-to-size' version.
Think I'll get the clear sheets, make a template, and cut my own. I think our friend @PauloHRC did just that.
Yes @nigelrb they do indeed have a disc logo, however it is clear with only Eazi Grip written on it. Where it it on my tank cover it is over the burgundy so the writing is not seen. The only way you notice it is with the surface finish being smooth compared to the dimples. i dont have a close up photo to hand but you can see on this one if you zoom in.
