    Fuel range ect

    Actually got to use my bike as the manufacturer intended and enjoyed every mile. I brimmed the tank and rode 193 miles, on refueling the bike took 17. 20 litres which equates to 52 mpg. I think I would have been pushing the bike to the garage at 205 miles. What warnings do you get that it is...

    New seat

    Have just replaced the OEM with a Sargent heated seat. Not had a chance to try it out yet but it seems more substantial than the original. Will give a report once I've done a few miles.

    MT09Tracer 2017 model, 1300 miles

    Yeah, I'm not loving it, its a great bike for sure, and is a 2017 model in Forest Green with all the options, ABS / throttle maps and the like, it just doesn't "involve" me. Clearly, at this mileage, like new, all the bugs get washed off after ever ride and the like, 1st service done at 550...

    Crazy iron butt style rides

    Here's the thing... Met a retired Londoner on the early morning tunnel crossing heading to Morocco, he was aiming to make Cadiz by the end of the following day after an overnight stop just past Bordeoux, that's a whopping 1327 miles according to maps. Last year we travelled on the tunnel we...

    Dodgy Fuel guage sender

    Returning from a trip to the Cat & Fiddle, my mates were signalling they needed fuel. A quick glance at my fuel guage told me I still had a full tank. FULL TANK? After 130 miles? Something wasn't right. Pulling into to the nearest petrol station a vigorous shake of the bike got the guage to drop...

    GS to Tracer 900

    Traded in a 2013 R1200 GS for one. Picked up a nice blue 2017 model on Saturday. Its hard work sticking to 5500 rpm for the first 600 miles as the Tracer is a cracking B road blaster - only another 400 to go....! Happy days....

    2017 mt-09

    Took the 2017 MT-09 for a demo the other day it was the grey with the fluorescent wheels, it is the same as the earlier model but it has a quickshifter and a slipper clutch which are good, the engine is smoother but still has the annoying transmission whine in 2nd 4th and 6th gears which seems...

    Miles Per Gallon or Litres Per 100km...?

    Hi - Does everyones dash display Litres Per 100 kilometres on the average use, instead of a miles per gallon figure? ...Either this normal, I have an import(No, I haven't!), or Yam have saved a couple of Yen by not giving the UK miles per gallon. Perhaps I can change it, but as yet haven't found...

    Are these bikes actually shifting?

    I know it's a bad time of year but I can't believe anyone is able to sell anything out there ATM! I'd let mine go at £6500 which makes it one of the cheapest out there with zero interest. Are these bikes actually shifting??? BTW It's in grey, 12k miles, 2015 with Akrapovic and more if anyone is...

    Okay fuel consumption again

    So decided to check my MPG or Litres per KM. The.photos hopefully attached show the fuel guage just as it clicked over onto the second to last segment. So doing a conversation at 4.54 litres to a gallon and dividing 206 kms by 8 x5 gives me 128.75 miles which means I averaged 53.64 MPG. I was...

    Finally, I managed to get on the new SR ...

    After 3wks of ownership with no opportunity to ride, I finally managed to put nearly 200 miles on my Street Rally on Sunday. Firstly, I rode like a twat - I'm no Maria Costello but I'd also never rode a triple before so took a few miles of adjusting to the torque and the lightness of it. My...
