  • I think you can get proper bike usb chargers that connect to the battery.

    • I'm putting my CBR500R up for sale (just bought a Z1000SX) if anyone is interested, or knows someone who might be.

        • Oh and don't buy "IRIS" brand chains, they are crap.

          Mine has lasted 3 years (or only about 12k maybe?) and it's warped to hell. Got a very definate tight spot which when I adjust to spec, the rest of the chain is really loose which is a good sign its knackered, added to that it was making a bit of a dodgy noise going round yesterday.

          Went for a DID VX Heavy Duty chain (and JT sprock set) which is £97 together.

          DID also do a "Super" heavy duty VX ring, but that is £122 for the chain alone and the sprockets would then be another £30 or so on top of that.

          Im not even 100% sure I wana ride the bike now until I can put that on.

            I'll drop you a PM with all the details if you're interested, but it's a 2014 ('64) CBR500R ABS with just over 8500 miles on it. Not long had it's 8000 mile service, which included a new sprocket and chain. The bike is in great condition bar a few minor marks on the rear cowling where my kriega has rubbed against the paint - mechanically it's absolutely spot on, never given me a spot of bother. I gave it an interim oil change at 4000 miles as well. Comes with the super sport pack which includes higher screen, fender, seat cowl and a lovely Akropovic exhaust.

            Would be looking for around £3250.

            • Thats not really my thing, but seems to be a reasonable price for that.

              Are you on your Kawasaki now? How is it?

                          IS that the same bike you previously posted?

                          Looks different, looks better.

                          • Same bike yeah, but with panniers taken off and clear indicator lenses instead of orange which makes a big difference imo

                            • Changed my rear brake pads just now because I noticed this:



                              Seems one side of that pad had completely sheared off. Probably been like that for ages. I only noticed the other day when I was doing my chain and sprockets.

                              I tried Goldfren AD type brake pads (mainly as they are cheap and I dont use the back brake all that much) but they seem to do the trick I can lock the back wheel up which is as good as you will ever need them to work I guess
