Bike Talk / Quality Fitting Radiator Protector
August 09, 2019, 03:03:47 PM
Thought i'd best spend a few pounds and protect the Zeds radiator.

Not a whole lot of choice for the Z900RS Cafe that isn't covered in logo of some sorts.

This one from Evotech Performance looked the best.

Worth every penny of the £76 delivered. Amazingly easy to fit and looks great.



And after... :cool:

Bike Talk / Brilliant maintenace item.
February 24, 2019, 04:29:05 PM
Took the Zed out another jolly this year.

Gave it a good wash and used this item as recommended on here.

Holy shit... I have been neglecting all my other bikes. Amazing how much water it blasted out the switchgear and other nooks and crannies. Didn't need the heat turned up too much, the concentrated blast it gives it just fantastic.

Best blowjob in ages.... :lipsrsealed:

Even the cats looked impressed..

Bike Talk / Final bits done to the Zed
January 27, 2019, 04:54:22 PM
I Treated the Zed to and R&G exhaust hanger and blanking plate for other side. Not cheap at £82 but no other ones available that i could find.

Also removed the stick out bobbin style bungy hook points at mid section of the seat.

Along with removing the big back end , fitting the tail tidy and putting new Lextek headers on.

I'm pretty much done with what i had intended when i bought it. Happy chappy with the clean look.

This is day i bought it.



And now.

Bike Talk / Fresh day
January 01, 2019, 02:27:51 PM
Whilst many were probably still suffering from over indulgence last night.

I was bright eyed and bushy tailed today :cool:.

Took Zed out for a burl. Few dry roads but loads of micro climates.

The new Lextek downpipes fitted just before Christmas sound bloody awesome.

I have noticed that the snatchy throttle response from standard on lower revs has gone. Lots better in 1st and 2nd.

Still not using full rev range as not had first service yet. Pulls very well in 5th and 6th from low speed.

All in all..

I LOVE IT.

Bike Talk / New bum for Zed
November 07, 2018, 07:49:10 PM
Some folk might not like it.

My choice was to keep the original indicators and get rid of the big back end.

Put on my plate, wider one ordered rather than cut the bracket.

I think it looks awrite for £41 delivered compared to R&G at £96



Something in me felt uneasy cutting original bike wires to connect new one.

Bike Talk / Out for a burl on Zed
October 15, 2018, 04:57:38 PM
I'm liking this retired shit. Wee 12 mile cycle on trainer early this morning. Into car and away for a swim, sauna and steam room.
Pop into shops for some food supplies on way home. Get washing out on the line.
Then out on Zed.

Life is good. :cool:

I adjusted the bars down a bit, made a difference in my comfort, bit more of a racing feel. Done 85 miles without stopping to stretch ma pins , bike is super comfy and most enjoyable to ride. It has only doen 200 miles now so not opened it up as such.  :shocked:

I must say that the new BKS Fury leather bottoms i got last week are super comfy. Fit is great and no tight crunchy spots around hips or knees. Worth the dosh.

Bike Talk / New bike photos
September 10, 2018, 04:42:41 PM
Not a whole lot going on in here ,  so i thought i would post up some photos of Zed who arrived on Saturday.

Only rode it 23 miles home then rain has been off and on so not managed a decent run  :moto:

I love it, sooo comfortable and looks just gorgeous.

Bike Talk / Goodbye faithful little steed.
August 20, 2018, 05:26:56 PM
After nearly 6 years and some horrific winter , ( and summer ) , weather riding since buying it in Dec 2012.

I let ma wee pal go at the weekend to clear the way for ma new steed  :cool:

It was used in all weathers , snow , monsoon like conditions and a near hurricane which was amusing to say the least , when no other bike was on the road.

The Black Bullet has departed this locus. :cry:

Chap drove through from the other side of the Weedge for it. Helensburgh for those in the know. 3 hour round trip.

I Paid a grand for it. Took £550 as it needed new forks and regardless of ACF50. The swingarm and exhaust suffered with rust.

Onwards and upwards. Bike hut is getting gutted and new carpet fitted, courtesy of a neigbours offcuts of £30 sq meter. Lush as fuck for the new Zed 900 :afro:

He was uber impressed with the service history.... :rofl: And i did adjust the chain before it went in the van ...

Bike Talk / I have found it.
August 01, 2018, 02:44:13 PM
Popped over to Kawasaki Kirkcaldy and took out this beastie.

Within 5 minutes it was like being with a long lost friend.  :cool:

Comfortable , great sound , handled just right for me. Felt relaxed on it , riding position was good and i never felt like i had been away from a big bike for 3 years..

Though i did on Thruxton last week  :huh:

Torque was fantastic in any gear. Not the same as the Thruxton twin oomph. Smoother and not so abrupt so to speak. Easy to ride through town and at some 20mph limits.

Once out on the open road. Yeee fucking haaaa .  :moto: :moto: The pick up in 2nd and 3rd gear is brilliant.

Went into corners with confidence and grunted out them . Made me laugh like a daftie on Helium. Brakes felt good and inspired confidence in my meagre ability. 

It felt so different to Thruxton doing several laps of some various sized roundabouts. Maybe the throttle response and power.

I even had a wee rain shower thrown in on back roads. Never backed it off and felt just right.

The search for my next bike is complete.

I will be getting one by end of September i reckon.

Bike Talk / Demo on this
July 25, 2018, 06:40:09 PM
Having not had a " big bike " for nearly 3 years and been belting about on the YBR125 as a commuter . I'm looking to treat maself in a few months once i get retired.

I took this out today for a wee run from Edinburgh down the A7.

Colour and nose fairing aint my bag. Will be a black 1200R . Maybe.

Fook me. Torque is amazing. It just pulls in every gear.

Ok. Been 4cyl chap all my days for big bikes. Had a shot on an SP2 over 12 years ago for about 15 minutes. Shat ma pants to be fair.

This is what i found myself on today.

Quite snatchy in traffic out of town. Maybe just me adjusting.

Once out on open road . This thing is crackers. Sound is awesome with Vance and Hines on it.  Found it very comfortable once i adjusted myself and kept relaxing as i was aware that i was tensing up having been away from big bike status for so long.

To be honest i was a tad shitting ma pants.  :shocked:

I needn't have worried. It hit 3 figures in a very quick shortshift. Slowed down and tried to see how good it pulled from low down in each gear. Well impressed.

Tried the brakes from a reasonable speed 3 figures.. . and one finger braking. Stops so very fast.

After riding the 125 so often. It felt very heavy on roundabouts, wasn't surprised. At 200KG plus , and my lack of biig bike feel and confidence.

Downside. Sidestand is hidden under exhaust and the boots i was wearing ( old Alpinestars ) gave no movement to get it , had to flick it out by hand. OOOOH ERRR :rofl:.

Heat from engine once back into town was a bit annoying on inside of knees.. Tho i tend to hug a bike with my legs. Ended up with them out to cool down in Edinburghs glorious 20mph limits.

30mph helped.  :moto:


So. My morning was good. Will i buy one ? Probably, second hand and most certainly not from Two Wheels in Edinburgh.

Complete knob  :moto:.

Tho jailed ?

There are rapists and other bad fuckers that commit terrible crimes who do not get jailed.

I personally do not think that jailtime at the taxpayers expense is the correct punishment.

Bike Talk / ACF 50 Time
November 09, 2013, 06:53:02 PM
Out early doors this morning.
Total degrease of the YBR with Gunk and some brushes.
Rinse then wash with shampoo.
Rub down with old bath towels. Let it dry in the sun and breeze.

ACF with brushes and rags, not as heavy handed with it this year. :rolleyes:
Bike is now ready to go for the season of salt.
Read on another forum that folk pay about £60 for this to be done. :shocked:

Took me about 2 hours to do it.

Should maybe advertise my services  :moto:
For the bike as well ;)

Gators have been fitted.
Not gonna do the heated grips due to battery issues. Think I might get a set of Muffs....

By which time the buyer had got a refund and bought another.....

Blackberry 9300 curve for sale. LOCKED ON TESCO MOBILE NETWORK.

£45 , £50 DELIVERED... By a courier service and not the Royal Mail Cants... :rolleyes:


Very minor light marks on screen.

Slight marking to case as can be seen in photo. Otherwise it is in brilliant condition.

The phone is under a year old, always had a case and screen protector on it.

Will be supplied with 4 fresh screen protectors that I have.

Original box and charger.

Comes with a 2GB SD card.

Bike Talk / Ohhh f##kity
September 03, 2013, 07:13:03 PM
FB friends will have seen this.

Enroute to Wigan , Sunday morning for a straight swap to a Z750. Got 90 miles to Lockerbie services for a quick coffee.
The straps were all tight 60 seconds before.Paddock stand sank into the shitty thin ply floor.

Over she goes

Could've been a whole lot worse if the front end wasn't wrapped up in a big thick duvet. Expensive lesson learned.

A £380 one at that.

21 years and 11 bikes. First time I have had any damage to repair.
