Re: Hand Guards

They make a hell of a difference when it's cold. Much more than you would expect.

Re: Rsv

Cracking bike, always fancied one. Especially this one although I appreciate the colour scheme is a bit marmite. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e7/APRILIA_RSV_1000_R_BOL_DOR.jpg Looking forward to hearing them new cans on the next ride. I'll never forget the noise following 8 RSVs a...

Re: Engine temps again

Alan and Chris, I would take the fan off and clean the rad fins out. To be honest it's not a big job to take the rad off an clean it properly.

I did mine a few years ago and while it was off sprayed it with exhaust paint

Re: Engine temps again

Didnt Tim have problems with his over heating and it turned out to be a faulty water pump ?? :? Not sure if it was a faulty water pump so much as a faulty water pump fitter (giggle) Hub's bike had an overheating problem that he never got to the bottom of though. I'm wondering if the 650 has a diffe...

Re: Suspension Settings

It's bloody dark art!

The physics is very simple, but applying it chuffing voodoo. I'd get a man in!

Re: Squeaky bum time (onboard from snetterton)

Didn't watch all the vid but I'd say you need to move up to inters. Your relative speed to most of the others is too big and recon you'd feel a lot safer in inters.

It's much easier and it all flows better when you're arriving at a corner doing similar speeds to the other bikes around you.

Re: Engine temps again

Feck me they're all broken! I'd try cleaning your rad and making sure there is enough water in first. I jet wash mine very carefully from the inside out where you can get at it and then outside in where you can't. Be careful around the fan. I've been doing that for the last 7 years (same bike) witho...

Re: Engine temps again

Can't remember exactly but think the stat is full open around 78c. So if your moving at a fair rate it shouldn't go much above that even on a hot day. If your stopped and there's no air flow over the rad it will go up to 105 fairly quickly and then back down to 100 when the fan comes on. Should neve...

Re: Engine temps again

My 600 did when I was stuck in traffic. Must have been something wrong with yours as well then. The only time mine has ever gone over 105 is when I had a leaky rad. Oh and he two times I didn't shut the bleed valve properly. Alan check the fins on the rad are clear, try shining a torch from inside ...

Re: Engine temps again

If everything is working properly it should never go over 105.

Re: Daytona 600 coolant leak.

Yes it will do. That chain rubbing strip is a pig of a job, lost a few knuckles doing that.

Keep an eye out in the events section on here, there will be a few Buxton rides this summer.

Re: Daytona 600 coolant leak.

There's a bleed nipple on the water pump by your left foot, but I normally take the bottom hose off. (same side)

Make sure you close nipple up properly after you've filled it. I've forgotten to do that twice and got a very wet left foot!
