Been nobike for 4 weeks now, I feel like I have so much free time now.
>>19279346Hate to interrupt your bbc worship but I got a bike related question!Is a concourse just a zx14 with a shaft drive? A guy at work rides one and it doesn’t look too bad for an ST. Actually better than a zx in my eyes. I commute about 75 miles a day and am looking to upgrade once my drz is paid off.
CB u suck
>>19279333Are you shitposting from work?
another reminder that all supermotos are shit bikes. dont waste your money on a turd with two wheels. youre literally better off buying a fucking meme grom.
>>19279333I should like that, but I have an irrational dislike of Suzuki. They always strike me as cheap, and it bugs me. Like an also-ran compared to the other Japanese manufacturers.
>>19276950>And throw some K60 Scout on when you change tiresI'm rocking the new Metzler Keroo Street on the rear, and been waiting 7 weeks for the front one. Fucking metzler thought 90/90-21 was such an uncommon size they hadn't even made it when picked up my rear. (And the retailer told me this like last week).And 140 rear wasn't even available as an option, thus I've got 150 now.

>>19279480WrongSpending a weekend with other identitarians, confronting leftists and visiting a pozed museum exhibit on race felt great.
Imagine going on vacation in Norway, riding bikes along the beautiful fjords and visiting the SEF memorial, and then suddenly it hits you.The stench.The foul stench of burnt oil, Cheetos and crapped pants.He has found you.Yeah, I think I'll stay away from that country after all.

How do I adjust the suspension on my bike.I have the preload set right and i just put all the preload and rebound dampers to stock setting. the manual is super vague about how to adjust them and there's a lot of contradictory information onlineI want to start track riding and it really seems like an area that needs to be set up right to really start improving without working around suboptimal settings
Guys Ive been riding a 4 speed vespa around for a few months now, and I need to get a better bike. Ive been looking at s 1200cc bike and was wondering if I should get something smaller before I go to the big engine cruiser. I feel like I can handle it, but in the back of my head I feel like I might do better on a cheap smaller bike first
>>19279644Looks like they're Austrian
>>19279683depends what you want to get out of ridingif you wanna just start riding a cruiser and go on lazy rides you could probably jump on the cruiser and be good to go once you are familiar with its weight and controlsif you wanna get fast and more technically skilled you will probably pick up bad habits from going straight to the cruiser and the size and weight and power of it will hold you back from getting better. not saying its impossible but there are limitations to big cruisers as far as learning goes. its just about impossible to take a corner in the wrong gear etc the riding style offers no incentive to better riding form
>>19279701I want to use it to commute to work (long strait road s) and for fun. The scooter will go about 70mph but it's terrifying at that speed. I was hoping that the cruiser would be better that that speed
>>19279681>preload depending on your weight>keep front and rear exactly the same>keep damping and rebound the same speed>experiment with harder and softer settings, track means you want it hard so the bike stays stable under braking and accelerating but not so hard you risk loosing tracktion on rough patches. Id suggest a setting thats just hard enough to be really uncomfortable on a shitty road.
>>19279706the cruiser will undoubtedly be better at higher speeds than a vespa. it will feel much more stable but it will be quite a bit different to handle it as far as steering and braking goes, you need to approach it like a whole new type of riding technique which applies for pretty much any proper size bike after coming from a scooter- for a total beginner you might struggle to steer it if you don't put aside your expectations of iti think most people would be fine if they know how they actually to steer a bike.just be careful on the corners and try to become familiar and natural with steering it efficiently at will
>>19279316Good lord, can you imagine what an ugly child an irishman and a negro would make?

what does "in god we trust" really mean? I was tearing at this quarter I can't figure out what it means.
does anybody have an opinion about raising a super Moto in he car suspension. I don't mean by preload. what would happen if you did this to a 701? would it handle better?

>>19280623>carbs need cleaningBig red flag, nigga wants to sell you his garbage for top dollar then he can pull the carbs and clean them and make it run right. There is no way for you to know if the " carbs need cleaned " is actually the issue making it start and run poorly.Keep looking and as a general rule, bikes that people have modded ( bubba fucked ) are bikes to stay away from. Best chance for a good bike is stock and clean.
>>19280578Floater thingy on the gas tank broke after the first 1000km. Since it's a 125cc copypasted since the early 00's I know that it does 350-370 km with 12 lt so I didn't bother changing it. Bonus tip it marks half full when I'm almost out of gas

I'm having the time of my life holding the clutch at every red light and fumbling for neutral on my sv650. Things got slightly better when I changed the clutch lever from the tightest setting to the second tightest, but now it's just as bad. I've come to shut off the engine at red lights, then with the engine off I can shift just perfectly, and then start the engine again, making it look like I let the engine stall. I'll do this http://www.svrider.com/forum/showthread.php?t=54588 on sunday, but otherwise I'm at a loss. Since I can find neutral perfectly doing everything the same except for the shut off engine, I doubt the advice pertaining to the clutch cable will have any effect. The oil was changed in April Any advice?
>>19280866Almost all bikes need to be rolling a bit forward/back to get into neutralWhat oil do you use? last time you changed? Are you sure it's the right oil? not synthetic when it asks for dino oil? not overfilled?I guess get good at changing to Neutral before actually stoppping, at like 5mph. Cable lubricated? Do you have a way of getting the rear wheel off the ground, hold the clutch in and rev it, see how much the wheel moves? (it should move slightly, but not much)
>>19280841must be a subaru meet up there
>>19280866seems like you just need to get gudlike finding nuetral should just be a very gentle nudge on the shift lever, like barely even pushing it or just hold the clutch like most of us do
>>19280880>Almost all bikes need to be rolling a bit forward/back to get into neutralHad this bike for 3 seasons now, never been quite this bad>What oil do you use? last time you changed? Are you sure it's the right oil? not synthetic when it asks for dino oil? not overfilled?Don't remember the brand offhand 10@40 like the service manual says. Not overfilled, not under. >I guess get good at changing to Neutral before actually stopping, at like 5mph. >>19280957I've been riding this bike a while and I know the basic tricks, but even that is hard to do at this point. It's a little easier when rolling downhill, but in the city there's just no way.>Cable lubricated? Do you have a way of getting the rear wheel off the ground, hold the clutch in and rev it, see how much the wheel moves? (it should move slightly, but not much)Entire clutch cable assembly was replaced in early march, I will lube it anyway. I'll do your test. I've trouble imagining it's in the clutch, because when I shut the engine off I manipulate the clutch in the exact same way I would otherwise. I don't change anything there but the result is different..

>>19281543tbqh, thats what 98% of riders do in TX in the summer. Bikes from Groms, dirtbikes, to big ass cruising harleys; all ages too. Dressing for the crash is like being a prepper, you spend a shitload of money and always have all kinds of gear you'll likely never use.

currently restoring two guzzis, this is the airone 250 from around the 50s, it has the lowest idle I've ever seen on a bike so far
Proud of my little CBR250R. She hit a new top speed of 97mph sustained and was hitting 98mph here and there.Once my VFR is up and I sell this little weedwhacker, I think I'm really gonna miss messing around on a little 250 and doing shit you so shouldn't on a little single cylinder bike like this.

>>19281778>cargo net on tankThe Book doesn't specifically list this as heresy, but I'm not sure...
>>19281792Don't worry, I don't put cargo between the net and tank, I just need it to go with me wherever I go if I decide to put something big in the back when I don't bring a backpack.It makes a bit of a haze on the tank after some time but it buffs out in five minutes with microfiber.
Why do I see so many sport bike riders with their elbows locked and wrists cocked all the way back? How is that comfortable?

>>19282066Sure, it's more modern, got ABS and TC. But it's no Africa Twin, and thus just a generic BMW that will look severely out of place in 15 years.The nigger is also extremely reliable, far more so than the BMW. Going 300.000km with just oil/filter changes is quite possible, and valve adjustments are done with ease.It's not the most powerful engine, but it won't break down on you. Ever. >>19282139Oslo

Hey guysThanks to the BASED NYPD, I have recovered my motorcycleFrom now on I'll be parking it in secured monthly parking overnight but what is the best way to secure your bike while you're at your buddies house huffing paint and playing Mario Party 4?Chain through tire and frame + alarmed disc lock + cover?
>>19282494Why don't you do real drugs?
>>19282499I do huge amounts of cocaine iih>>19282501No I'm the Ethiopian fz07 anon on the map in the OP. I have a 300 in the states for getting around

>>19282494This might sound dumb but how the fuck do you huff paint and actually get high? I work construction and im by paint alot and all that shit ever does is give me a fucking headache, nothing pleasant about it.
how do I learn how to ride a motobike
>>19282578I was joking lol. I do blow on occasion. Downers are not my thing
>>19282584You get on one
>>19282609is it really as easy as fucking sitting on it and just going? How do I not die
>>19282601fuck off nigger
part that cost more to ship still hasn't come in: day 3
>>19280497i saw a manlet riding the same bike with no fairings on i94 to day around 5pm
>>19282623Go project your self loathing elsewhere.
>>19282584Take the MSF course, or equivalent intro course.
>>19281732>takes pics of random pics of bikes on the street>guys i got a new bike
Whats the bike equivalent of a 3k civic?
>looking at how close knee is to getting down before peg>realize how close the exhaust isI'm pretty sure if you even took the peg feelers off you would fucking die

>>19282658It's not like you immediately slide out as soon as metal touches down
>>19282658Wish I could get that low. I freak out when my foot/peg touches the ground so I have a mental block and can only lean several inches before I touch the ground
>>19282445>Riding old bike in for maintenance>Pass sedan close, driver thinks I hit him.>Takes off after me, bumps my rear tire in a parking lot.>Gets out of car (tfw Asian manlet)>Tries to hassle me, pushes me>Take off because lol sportbike>Continues to chase me>Pull into turnoff to duck him, call cops>As I turn around, comes flying around turn, slams into front of my bike>Backs up, takes off.Got pics of the car though, cops already have him.
>>19282690suck my dick homo
>CBR500R too gutless for track bike>CBR650F too heavy for track bikepls make new Hawk Honda
>>19282765how about a CBR600RR
>>19282688the back looks like poop
>>19282774Big jump in speed and running cost.
>>19282787not if you buy an older one
750cc is the 5'11" of motorcycles
>>19282797A 2003 600RR doesn't cost any less to run than a 2018. An old F3 or something still has 30% more power than an SV650 and is as heavy as the 650F among other things.
>>19282818what do you mean cost to run?you can buy some crashed bike for like $500 and just pull parts off that or just buy used shit online for way cheaper than 2018.
>>19282765If you want a cheap track bike get a Ninja 250 or 300.Pennies to run and own, reliable as all hell and plenty of aftermarket support.
>>19282779yeah, it's still an ongoing project and I'm running out of money to do it all any time soon hahah
>>19280088What is this thing?
>>19282826Most of the parts on a 2018 are from 2007 anyways.>what do you mean cost to run?Tires mostly, brakes secondly, general maintenance and parts third.>>19282833Definitely, I'm just talking about stuff one step up from that. Which admittedly there's still plenty of good choices for, just none of them happen to be Hondas made this century.
>>19282906Why fixate on Honda?You're restricting yourself unnecessarily.
>>19282899it's the motorcycle equivalent of a shitboxI'd totally wheelie it all day long
>>19282833Those are way more gutless than a cbr500r
>>19282912I bet you couldn't wheelie it for 5 seconds
>>19282914They're lighter and not as bland to ride as a CBR500.You also won't need to replace the footpegs straight away because they're not mounted as low.Power isn't a big deal desu, take it to a go kart track if all the tracks around you are mostly straight lines.
>>19282914Thing with a CBR500R is that it weighs as much as any other bike and runs a 160 rear so you don't really get the benefit of being really nimble, it's just slow.
>>19282922why? is it sub 50cc?does it fall apart if you try to start it?
>>19282944no, it's a CBR600F4i. I just don't think you got the skillz
>>19282765>why are these beginner tier commuter bikes not ideal track bikesgee I wonder
>>19282966cbr500r is a race bikehonda puts R in their race bike names
>>19282966Yeah because the NT650 was a hardcore race bike.
>>19282974It can be, it's just extremely sub optimal unless you're allowed to race them against bikes 100cc smaller.
>>19282960ok wild implication there buddyI don't like your attitudeNever reply to me or my posts ever again
did anyone save that markup dealer pic from last night?>wings my dude
>>19282980what happened to the anon that owned one?
>>19283016>>19278272why don't you save it yourself my friendo
What does dbt think about the Buell Blast? Would I be an idiot to buy one as a first bike?
ded thredwassermelone when>>19283196yes>buying a dead brand>as a first bikesenpai....
Do motorcycle shops normally do free repair estimates?The military base I live on had a hail storm, and the base is going to pay for damages, but I need to get an estimate done. I'm going through them because I only have liability.
>>19283196They're half a Harley engine shoved in a cheap frame and the only reason they exist is because big daddy HD forced Erik to make them.They're so bad you could buy the pre-crushed into a cube straight from Buell themselves, and I'm not making that up.Literally anything else would be better.
Hey I have a probably stupid question, if I have a SNELL2015 rated helmet is it rated for cycle use? I know they are impact rated, but not slide/friction rated if I'm understanding what I'm reading right.Also I'm assuming if I get into bikes I'll never have fun with cars again.
>>19283238I literally do not understand the questionsomeone send help
Which bike to buy? Bandit 650 or Er6n?I like the looks of the Er6n a lot, however the bandit has better torque and acceleration Which will die less on me
>>19283238sorry, SNELL 2015 doesn't actually cover sliding in the event of a high speed dismount, nor does ECE. However, if I recall correctly DOT does include in one of the arcane sections of its report a stipulation that helmets must withstand slides up to 200 meters and speeds up to 140 km/h. Therefore, your safest bet is to only look at DOT cert. Hope this helps.
>>19283312DOT is obsolite these days.
>>19283312Ok, this is how I read the differences between SNELL & DOT as well. I just wanted to make sure I was clear in my understanding.
>>19283294ER6n has EFI but the Bandit is faster and sounds better imoThey should both be pretty reliable, the Bandit is a proven design and is simplistic and the Kawi just werks.Go ride them, only you will truly know the answer.
>>19283341Ok thanks I will ride them
>>19283238Car and motorcycle helmets are different and have completely separate standards. For Snell, SA2015 is for cars and M2015 is for motorcycles..
>>19283363ah good to know thanks
>>19282704Why didn't you beat him to death when he hit your bike in the parking lot?
>>19283312>>19283328>>19283336this was bait guys pls dont respond
>>19282409Hiya fellow FZ6 Friend how are you?
