    Motorcycle change discussion

    Ah I rode an earlier SP blade, not the current model. I left Honda in 2014. From the sounds of it yes they're having a ton of trouble with them.. we had some rather concerning issues with the brakes on the ABS blades 09-12... If you're after exclusivity and a bit of size how about an H2 ;)?

    The Crew 2

    I played the first one for a little, it was a cool concept Kinda reminds me of Test Drive Unlimited? About time a game filled that gap I'll probably get it when it's £9 like I did with the first

    I worked for Honda up until 2014 so rode everything I worked on and trade ins we had - so any litre to 14' I can help you on! (yes, even the awful RC8) I'm no racer so I can't tell you what they're like on the limit or anything like that.. The Honda/Gsxr of that age are much of a muchness, nothing wrong with either. ZX10 is noticably faster, S1000RR feels faster still over the others (nasty clicky BMW switches though..!). RSV is a nice thing to listen to but under the fairings it's a real mess. I'm not even going to mention the crossplane R1... get one before that engine if you want a Yam. Of that age I would have gone ZX10 as it's a real lary bugger (and green..) - I imagine the current one is much the same! Don't look so much at the 'race' tech on them, i.e HP4 bmw, you're not going to notice any of that on road. I rode the first SP blades with the ohlins and brembos, felt the same as a standard one to me.. little smoother engine. Depends what you're after bike wise, whether just for fun or longer distance? I like anything 10k rpm+, one of my favs was always a street triple R.. crazy little thing to ride but prob an effort on a long run. Ask me stuff, there's a good chance I've ridden one and worked on them..

    New Jimny

    I worked for Honda bikes for a bit, dealer was car/bike split with a Suzuki bolt on.. I drove one of these about 30 miles motorway, felt so sick after. I'm sure they're awesome little mountain goats off road but on road my god they're terrible D: Must admit though - that looks cool the new one.. like a baby G Wagon? Rebadge it put it next to one.
  5. Lighter.. faster.. I don't see a problem here?

    370Z rays on a 350Z

    Too nice a wheel to be in black, the shape would get lost! Silver on a dark colour they look so good.

    Average mileage before gallery gasket failure?

    My hot idle was at or just under 30, had the gaskets done at 90k and they had started to rip and break up, bang on 30 after that and mint since ofcourse. I just had it done so I could forget about it
  11. Looks about right! I only saw the rear quarter as you were leaving! I'm around that way a lot, Snet season pass holders so if we head that way we stop in Thet mcd for breakfast :3

    Summer tyres

    Great vid thank you - Asym 3s on mine, seem to do everything and don't seem to wear at all at the moment.. Always ran AD08s until the Z, larger size and no interest in tracking this one so never deemed it necessary.

    Up Rated Boot Lid Struts

    I sent mine in to SGS to be regassed last year, just had none on it for a week or so. When you do that you realise how obscenely heavy the bootlid is! Seem the same now as when they were first done, pops straight open, doesn't eat me anymore

    De-cat pipes or Y pipe - 350z

    DE or HR? Decats make these a fair bit louder but also give a lot more rasp. If that's not your thing make sure you have a resonated mid section and resonated/silenced decats
