On Two Wheels / Mobile phone mount, advice needed.
« on: June 09, 2019, 06:10:43 PM »
Hi guys, I'm thinking of getting this bracket/bar to fit to my Tracer so I can attach my mobile phone to it.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Kappa-Windscren-Bracket-Mount-Phone-GPS-Holder-Yamaha-MT-09-850-Tracer-2015-2017/332517407199

Trouble is I'm a bit confused as to what type of product to attach to the bar to hold the phone in place, especially as the bar seems very thin compared to handlebars.

Any help appreciated.

On Two Wheels / Zero SR/F Test Ride
« on: June 05, 2019, 02:18:09 PM »
Streetbike near me in Birmingham were doing a one day demo on this today so I booked myself in for a short demo ride on this all new electric motorcycle.

My God what an experience, these are the future guys, insanely fun and very powerful too in sport mode(0-120mph in 6.5 seconds apparently). As there are no gears it's just like have one crazy long first gear right up to top speed, smooth as silk and so much torque, and as you'd expect extremely quiet apart from a gentle futuristic whine sound. 18,000 though!  Obviously downsides are the max range of 100 miles and the 4 hour recharge, but once they get that sorted in the next 5+ years I guess they will be a must have.

Parts, Accessories & Clothing For Sale / Gear Indicator - SOLD
« on: August 08, 2018, 07:30:21 PM »
Got an 'Idea' branded plug and play gear indicator for sale from my deceased CB500X. Display is Red in colour. No instructions but it's easy to set up and works flawlessly, I'm sure chaps on here will advise if you need help. You'll just need something sticky to attach it to the bike as I have used the pads it came with.

20 + 2 postage.

Parts, Accessories & Clothing For Sale / Fuel Exhaust - SOLD!
« on: August 06, 2018, 06:14:08 PM »
Had this on my now deceased 2017 CB500X since January, bit grubby and weather worn from winter commuting but otherwise fine and undamaged. This is the model to be precise just for reference.

I'm thinking 90 + postage which I estimate around 10-12 pounds.

CB500X - General Chat / My Baby is a Write off.
« on: July 23, 2018, 03:08:32 PM »
So, left work today at 12:30, walked the short distance up the hill to where I park in a motorcycle bay (Birmingham city centre) and she's lying on the floor. What the hell, thieves, did I not put the side stand down properly, all these crazy thoughts.

Try to pick her up but noticed there's no side stand anywhere to be seen, also the alarm is going off so I'm getting stressed at this point, then a lovely lady who works at the bank nearby comes out to inform me the bike was hit by delivery lorry (he left his details under the bike cover), she had my side stand in a big envelope. I survey the damage and it's not good. Left clutch lever is bent, left mirror is knackered, wind screen hanging off, but worst of all the entire front end/dash/lights, everything is complete bent over to the right, fairing all coming apart and bent etc. Unfixable, and god knows what state it's in structurally. Amazingly though it was rideable, two really nice homeless guys held the bike up while I got helmet on and I was on my way. Absolutely gutted.

Seems the company of the vehicle have basically admitted fault, but then it is 100% there fault so I don't think they can really argue that considering it was parked and there are witnesses.

My baby.   :012:

CB500X - General Chat / New Review
« on: April 11, 2018, 01:30:26 PM »
I know most of us already have the bike but I still like seeing reviews pop up for it and so thought you'd like to see this one, the guy pretty much nails it. What a bike.   :002:

Lighting, Electrical, and Wiring / Starting her up, is this normal?
« on: March 25, 2018, 05:32:29 PM »
Bought my 2017 500X brand new last December and it's been fine but lately I've noticed that sometimes, not always, it takes a good few cranks before she fires up. For example, went to work this morning and she started after about a second. When coming home (she'd been sat for 6 hours while at work) it took about 7 or 8 cranks before she fired up, I honestly thought she wasn't going to start.

Never had this issue on my Street Triple (or other FI bikes), she fires up on the button every time.

Tested the battery and it's absolutely fine, just doesn't seem right for an (almost) brand new bike.

CB500X - General Chat / Is this normal?
« on: February 12, 2018, 06:40:03 PM »
Got about a 1000 miles on my 2017 (from new) and just noticed something that I can't unsee as I am a bit OCD, sorry no pictures at the moment.

The block that sits in the centre of the handle bar with the 4 bolts and the Honda badge in the middle, it's quite noticeably off centre to the right when lining it up with with the dash or the petrol cap. Bike handles fine in all respects, this is a fixed part so not something that is movable, is this the way the bike is engineered, is it normal?

Modifications, Accessories, and Appearance / Best Rear Hugger?
« on: January 25, 2018, 10:27:26 AM »
I'm leaning towards the Honda one but tempted by the Powerbronze as the guard extends further back over the wheel. The Puig one looks decent too.

Anyone here had experience of any of these? Any of them harder to fit than others?
