It's the lines, the discs and calipers are the same used in 80's GSX-R and 90's-00's GSX-F but with only one disc and smaller M/C. GSX-F has spongy as fuck brakes, too, until you upgrade the lines to braided steel.

That jersey belongs to a tripfag named great white from the bay area who was a regular at /k/ and /n/, that image is at least a year old. He's a triathlete. Among cyclists, triathletes are known to have poor knowledge about cycling in general (the sport and it's culture), poor group riding etiquete and worst of all, completely atrocious riding skills. When out on the road, most cyclists try to steer wide of triathletes, they're easily identifiable by the time trial bikes and the gear they use. Much like zebras can identify each other by their color patterns, cycling has a lot of small and not so small subtleties to it that are only picked up by people in the cycling world. Curiously enough, while trifags are also on a bicycle, they practice a completely different sport.

Anyway, being a trifag on a cycling board, great white eventually dropped the trip after making a fool of himself several times. I still think he's an okay guy.

I just sold my 250 and am moving up to a liter bike.

Riding it home from three states away. Any tips on not dying?

So I went to go out to my bike to ride to work yesterday and I found it on its left side. Damage is pretty substantial. Frame slider completely bent in, fairing around frame slider busted, shifter bent in, clutch lever really bent, though somehow the mirror is okay. I filed a police report even though there's nothing they can really do about it.

I'm pretty bummed out because even though I have full coverage on the bike (Ninja 300), my deductible is $1000 and that's gonna set me back a lot. I park it outside because it's not a very expensive supersport like a Panigale or 1000rr, R1, etc and I don't have a garage available for it.

I'm considering renting a supersport for a few days while it's getting fixed in the mean time for commuting/leisure purposes, but it's just a consideration at this point.

I would take it into a mechanic and ask if it can be worked out. But don't take it the stealership or any place that looks like one, see if you can find a place that looks roughly like this.

I know a guy who unbends all sorts of things. It never stays as perfect as a new one, but most of the time it gets pretty usable.

Is the shifter the only thing affected? What if you purposefully bent it?
>>
I've got a question for thumper people. My DR350 will bog down then surge when quickly opening the throttle while under load (doesn't happen in neutral). It won't stall in these scenarios.

I've got a week old plug in that I'm gonna pull to see if it's running rich. What else could it be?

Carb is a Mikuni TM33 (Kientech kit) and modded airbox according to the recommendations for that kit's settings.

I'm new to carbed bikes and thumpers.

It starts up on the second kick with choke and runs well after warming up aside from the surging, but I might be missing things due to my inexperience with carbed thumpers.

Hi guys. I'm currently vehicleless, though it isn't much of a problem. For the sake of fun and affordability I'd like to get a bike.

I'm looking at buying the bike outright so my only payment will be fuel, maintenance and insurance. What are some averages on insurance? I know that varies pretty heavily on location of course so if there's no answer I understand.

As for the bike I like how Kawasaki Ninjas look. I have two dealers that I can buy them through. What should an average price be? What mileage should I look for if they're used? What's a good year?

Thanks guys.

yup its only the shift lever that goes in at an extreme angle, but I hadn't thought about bending it so it would be back at an angle, unfortunately I do not have the tools for this though

Well no shit Sherlock. It's only expensive if you accept the provided service.

If a mechanic tells you a fix is possible, there's nothing stopping you from googling your ass off and trying to get the tools to fix it yourself.

Hell if you were nice enough, had interest and presented the situation on a "hey I'll bring you a crate of beer for your advice" to a nice mechanic you'd probably manage to make HIM tell you how to do it.

I doubt you'll be able to get any more info on dbt anon, go out there and ask questions or google your way into it.

general purpose automotive grease you stupid tomato

anyway, less is more with levers.

Clean the hole the shaft goes into out then put a tiny coating around the little cylinder and spin it around in the hole until it's evenly coated and it'll be super duper smooth when you're braking.

If you skip this step you'll get the "squidgy" brakes where it goes "tap tap tap tap" and increases force in jolts rather than smoothly increasing.

the KTM motors in those huskies are much more suited for road running than your WR.

that said, when the WR needs a rebuild it's pretty trivial/cheap. When the KTM/Huskies need a rebuild. God help you.

When you fix everything that can break before it breaks (it didn't took even a 100USD, I bought the bike new for 400$ 'cus I live in Poland and stuff) it's actually pretty good for a 125ccm.

also, i don't remember where, but i think i read that when you try to register a bike in ca, even if it has a valid out-of-state plate, they'll check for a sticker or something on the bike that says whether it's "for highway use" or "not for highway use", and not give you a plate in the latter case.

I'm hoping to buy a dirt/offroad bike at the end of the year for about $1000USD.

My plan until then is to learn a bunch about bikes and how they work. Can any of you point me in the right direction to videos/documentaries/forums etc.

Cheers /o/

>>14206651
It doesn't say "type: ATV" or say "dirt" or "offroad" or anything anywhere on the title?

Does it have a 17 digit VIN?
Does the VIN conform to this:

They check the VIN. The VIN has to be a valid NHTSA standard VIN.

>>14206714
It is still possible. You can register a bike by mail with an out of state address in South Dakota. Then transfer to CA.

It's not explicitly legal but it does follow the process and will get you there. 99.9% of law enforcement doesn't know their ass from their elbow about bikes. As long as you have a plate, headlight/taillight/turn signals, and a mirror you're golden.

Also there is supposedly some Yamaha dealers that will work with you on getting a brand new WR450 registered (only new bikes) as they can supposedly order them with a specific VIN type. But that's far from the cheapest route because you would likely need to buy all the conversion hardware and install through them too. At that point you may as well buy a Husky or a KTM that is already there.

Yea that's the exact shit they look for.

>>14204073
Just don't get crazy with it and feel out the powerband. Realize that the large amount of midrange they make will readily bring up the front end in first or second, sometimes into fourth depending on how crazy/what year /type it is.

Feel it out power wise and take turns in a gear or two higher than you otherwise would and be easy on the throttle. They're motorcycles, if you know how to ride one you know how to ride them all. No literbike is constantly trying to kill you unless you're trying to push it's limits or just acting a fool. They putter around just like a 600 with more midrange.

>>14204109
>>14204173
>FZ1
Dude, this is about as tame as "literbikes" come. It's a standard with a one liter motor. FZ1's aren't even what people are referring to when they say "literbike", they are talking about small, light, powerful, and aggressive bikes like the CBR954RR/CBR1000RR, ZX-10R, Gixxer 1000, R1, S1000RR, etc.

An FZ1 is down on power, up on weight, more compliant, less aggressive, etc. than a real literbike. They are much easier to ride. They are still very powerful and have a lot more potential speed compared to a 250 anything but they're not shit your pants scary or anything.

Any real literbike, and even a Hayabusa/ZX14 are pussycats if you stay out of the power and ride at your skill level. An FZ1 or similar is even easier.

>>14206972
>imblying
Very few literbikes really need a steering stabilizer (see 04/05 ZX-10R).

Just pay attention and don't put the front wheel down with it cocked to the side and you'll be fine.

Any 600 or 1000 will start wagging the bars when the front end gets light on the gas, just don't deathgrip like a newb and you'll be fine.

My R6 will wag all the way to 90-100mph+ if I'm not on the tank. just let it happen and don't freak out.

>>
>>14207052
It will only happen when you're on the gas hard enough to make the front end light (see:WOT on a 600, probably around 75% throttle on a literbike)

The wagging is a low frequency oscillation, think bar moving back and forth about a half inch every 1-1.5 seconds. This is natural motorcycle dynamics and you need to just let it happen, because it will happen as long as you're on the gas hard and the wheel is touching the road. The worst thing you can do is try to physically fight it as that will only make it worse and actually put you into a tank slapper.

Grip the tank with your knees, lay on it, and pull the weight off your wrists and let them wag.

Fighting the bars or being heavy on the bars is a good way to put you on your ass at a high rate of speed.

Especially important to do this when getting on the throttle hard on rough pavement.
