Bikes For Sale / Fore Sale - R1 2002
October 08, 2019, 09:58:31 AM
It's time to sell up and consider my options.
A tough decision but this bike will only be sat in the garage and I'd rather someone enjoyed it.

Yamaha R1 2002
28,152 miles FSH
MOT due 19.04.2020
I've owned this bike for the last 6 and a half years.
Great bike in great condition.
Yoshi end can
Power commander
Double bubble screen
short levers
mini indicators
seat cowl
Exhaust hanger
Tyres in very good condition, nearly new.
All standard bits also included.

Any comments from here, it seems to be worth around that based on current adverts but happy to listen to others.

Wanted / old helmets
August 24, 2015, 12:08:49 PM

Does anyone have an old helmet they are not using that's fairly tidy?

My little boy wants one whilst he's riding around on his plastic motorbike - tried mine on and loved it, but I don't like the idea of him wearing my shakey rep!
Or, if anyone knows what I can get something cheap I'll do that.

Cheers all

I used to go to Chris at R&TD quite a bit.
Haven't been for a few years and now the numbers not working - anyone have a clue?

Moved on?
Changed numbers?
Made millions from tuning bikes?


Thought I'd ask here before searching ebay etc.

Mechanical / R1 Exup Valve
February 17, 2015, 01:06:59 PM

Afternoon all,

I ride a 2002 R1 all year round for my 20ish miles each way.
Went in for an MOT last week and fella told me the Exup valve has seized. Not sure when this happened but I've been riding around for a while and not noticed any issues. Power still there low down and top end. He siad he loosened it off and I shouldn't have any issues - I use Motorcycle Pit Stop in Letchworth, old SBT Sandy.
I'm no racer and I'm not pushing too hard on my commutes but I do give her a good blast now and again.

So my question is will I notice any difference? and what does it actually do?

Anyone on here removed the exup valve? Full system the way to go.

Bike Talk / Helmets.............
December 10, 2014, 04:48:33 PM

Just bought a new Shoei NXR Shakey Byrne rep lid - looks great.
However, I used to wear an Arai Astro R which was a perfect fit for noise, comfort etc.

Tried the new lid on in the shop, ticked all the boxes but I'm just not getting on with it on the road.
Wind noise seems more excessive then the Arai but this is supposed to be a newer quieter lid, been back to the shop once to check pads etc.
Heading back again to sort out ear/check pads.

Anyone had similar experiences? Do I not have a "Shoei Head"?
I can't return the lid, so I either stick it out or try and flog and lose a lot of money.

Any help, advice, etc would be greatly appreciated.

Wanted / yoshimura badge for r1 2002-03 exhaust
November 09, 2014, 03:47:50 PM

I'm tidying up the R1, service, wash, clean up etc and I want to replace all the worn/rusty bits.

As the title says, where would I find a yoshimura badge for r1 2002 exhaust?
I've search the web, ebay etc but nothing.

Any pointers would be great.

Bike Talk / Leather repairs - zips
April 30, 2014, 09:08:57 AM

As the title says, I have an A-stars 1 piece suit.
However, the zips on both legs are bust.

Anyone know any good repairers in the beds, herts, bucks area? I can post if needed.
I mainly after recommendations as their are lots of firms out there if you google.

Bike Talk / Helmet life....a bit more info needed
September 01, 2013, 02:17:38 PM

I know the 5year helmet life rule but the question is;
Is that usage or once you walk out the shop?
I've just realised my lid is 6years old but for 3 of those years it was off road whilst my leathers were hung up.
So 5 year life due to uv rays etc of from once bought?
