I went outside a lil bit ago and my kickstand looks like it pushed about 1/8" into the pavement? heres about a quarter size hole in the parking lot now. Has anyone ever had this happen before? I put a coaster underneath. Is that safe?
dude. didnt u just get the bike today? oh man u got lucky u went out to double check on it.. a lot of n00bs leave their bike like that and it sinks right in.. and tips over. good thing u caught it. i used a crushed can plenty of times.. just something to expand the mass.. just think of how much the bike weighs.. leaning over on a tiny kickstand.. lol
Yeah, til the first time some bike thief walks by and decides he likes it more than you... then your out a few $$$... I'll stick with the crushed can.... not as likely to be stolen, and if it is, a quick fix is just $.65 around the corner...
THey make speicial plates for us to blow our money on just for this purpose. If you want to be really bling jsut find and buy a 600RR kickstand plate . I use a jar lid
That happened to my brother last weekend at the rock store... Some dude on Gixxer parked his bike next to my brother's Factory Haga/Edwards Aprilia and it fell onto my brother's Aprilia and scratched it... Luckly, there were people around to catch it and keep it from getting worse... The dude whose bike fell into my brother's was kool enough tohang around too (we were eating brunch). But whats my brother gonna do? He cant really blame the guy for his bike falling into my brothers... and I dont think he could say, he dude, you scratched my plastic! give me $200.
I live in Ontario and it happens all the time up here too.. i was at work one day and i went to check up on it and it was about 1cm down into the pavement! moved the bike over a bit and then found a nice piece of Stainless Steal in a triangle form, I bent the edges up to conform to the underseat storage and it fits nice and snug, doesnt rattle and its sturdy. I'll take a pic if i have time tomorrow... i think its a piece of metal shelving.
Yeah that's REAL common around Florida. Come on man, it's Florida. In the Summer. It's like a million degrees around here.
I ***found*** a piece of some metal... erm... thingy right next to a construction site that works wonders for me. Also, when I took the MSF they gave me this big hard plastic coatser thingy that also works. A crushed can will hold you over until you find something (although don't try to re-use it, it just doesn't really work well). Good thing you check on it early.
Those home depot plates look pretty cool I'll pick some of those up. The asphalt in my complex is fairly new i think. I haven't had this problem anywhere else today except for my house so.... Not thinking, I stole one of my wifes new coasters and she is PISSED at me!!!!! I'm not getting any tonight I dont think =/
a friend of mine was telling me about a electronic visor that can switch from smoked to clear.
i have seen similar idea on airplane windows, they have a lcd i think in between them.
any one know if they are for sale?
also he said he saw one that has daemon eyes on it that are leds, ever see?
I have tried to change from khp to mph the normal way ..... 'when on trip A press the reset button' - it does not work for me.
My speedo seems to be stuck on kph.
Anyone else have this problem? If so did you manage to changeto mph?
Anyone know why it would be stuck on kph?
So, below are a couple of pics from my old 1992 CBR600 (f2) - bought as the flamed pirelli, purchased some fairings from China for £350 and fitted myself - and I loved this bike.
Smashed it to bits at 4am one morning on my commute, taking a corner far too late - totally my fault.
No idea how this happened but the coolant overflow tank somehow got a hole in the top. It looks burned but it's not by the head or exhaust. No coolant was left in it. I noticed it when I was changing the oil.
