All Pack Ready To Go To Oulton

All set up and ready for an early start to Oulton Park. van loaded, fuel got (after a bit of annoyance with the petrol station attendant and having to fill 1 can at a time and pay for it, then go back and do the next). Other things to mention......

Hibernating The GSXR

Well as the cold weather seems to be here, it's about time I got around to taking the water out of the GSXR. Some people say that you can just leave a bike empty, but I always prefer to put in some antifreeze. This lubricates the seals and stops corrosion...

All Ready For Thruxton

A long time without an update here. So what's happened? Well in all honesty not a great deal. I decided to skip the Pembrey round as the finances have been a little stretched this year, and I don't really enjoy the circuit that much, or rather where it is. It...

All Set For Anglesey

The van is loaded, the weather forecasts checked and I am all ready for Anglesey. Well... nearly. I have had to swap the screen due to a little accident, and I am not too taken with the replacement (it was cheap, it could get here and it fits). It's just...

Shock Out and Ready to Be Service/Repaired

With time running short, as normal , before Anglesey/Ty Croes I have managed to get the rear shock out for service and repair. At Oulton, Doog pointed out that the rear shock had started leaking, putting my last race in doubt, I decided the best plan was for him to give it...

The GSXR is Back From A Tune Up at OTC

I have just been to pick up the GSXR from Pete and Nick at OTC Racing Dyno Centre in Widnes. I am rather pleased with the results on paper. The power and torque curve all look nice and smooth with no nasty spikes or troughs in it with figures of...

Spoke Too Soon Ill GSXR, But Now Sorted Now Next Stop Donington

I spoke to soon yesterday when I said everything was fine. After putting the fuel tank back on I thought I'd give the GSXR a run up to check everything over.... and bugger, the Suzuki is not playing the game. It's misfiring again. With very little time I have a...

It’s alive! Alive!! ALIVE!!!!

The Gixxer is back among the living. The misfire was down to either a coil stick not being seated properly or the spark plug on the nearside giving up the ghost. I don't know which and I think I'll be getting a spare coil in my spares kit just in...

All The FI Codes Are Out

My hunch was right, that the wire should be connected inside the wiring loom. A quick delve into the shrink wrapped loom near the connector and a broken wire was there. This is where the Power Commander connects in so it can read the throttle. On all the previous bikes...

Engine Swapped But A Little Problem

So a bank holiday weekend of swapping the engine out on the GSXR. I had a lot of help from my good friend Haydn, and his large selection of Snap On tools (I must get myself a set of air tools :) ). It took a lot longer than I...
