    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
