Technical / Whats wrong ?
« on: October 05, 2011, 01:54:40 PM »
OK experts.

Recently I had a Yamaha 50Hp outboard in for tune up. 3 cylinder.
Compresson test motor , replace spark plugs , test spark.
Striped and cleaned carbs x 3. (Yamaha keihin carbs are known to block emmulsion tubes if run on dirty fuel.)
Reassemble and test run.Balance carbs and adjust idle mixture.
Motor idles perfect but when revs are increased motor runs on 2-2.5 cylinders.
Check fuel flow out of carb with timming light & torch. No. 2 carb running lean at part throttle.Motor runs good above 5k rpm.
Remove carbs.Strip & inspect.All seams fine.
Inspect reeds.Fine.
Reassemble and test run. Same problem.
Motor idles perfect & runs at WOT perfect. Not in between.
Whats wrong?.
Yes I found the problem. ;D

We are living in the days of mass marketing.
Do you belive in the hype, and do you drink energy drinks while riding.

I drink water while riding and will have a Powerade at the end of the day.

The only fizzy energy drink I have had is a Red Bull, And thats with Vodka. ;)

I think the results may be age appropriate.

Non-Moto / Stupid Or embarrassing things you have done on a bike
« on: September 01, 2011, 09:43:43 PM »
As the title says, What is the stupidest or most embarrassing thing you have done on a motorbike.
There are a few "seasoned" riders on here ;D that must have some good stories.
And you young fella's.

Stupidest: When I was 17, my cousin and I left work at 3am to go home on his CBR1000.Traveling thru town in a 50kph zone I thought we were travaling a bit fast (I was pillion) and pulled my head out to look at the speedo. 280kmh. Past the hospital. It took about 400 meter's to pull up before the next set of lights. STUPID STUPID STUPID.

Embarrassing: Showing off to some girls when I was 14. I was doing my best Ivan Mauger ( Speedway Champ) impersonation on the beach and was going quite well until the bike gripped and high sided me into the sand. Bike landed on top of me and the foot peg put a hole in my leg. The girls had to carry me back to the car park.. :-[
I didn't even get a sympathy kiss.

Open Forum / Monster Tajima's Pike Peak run
« on: August 27, 2011, 01:59:31 AM »
I know it is a big add for GoPro, but it's a pretty good vid off Pikes Peak.
Monster has raced down here a few times and comes across as a pretty funny guy in his broken english.
1000+ Hp up that hill is impressive.

Following on from TotalNZ's thread on what people do I thought I would start this.
With all the emphasise today on Health & Safety in the workplace I find the following photo's a concern.
Distractions in the work place is a major cause of accidents.
Could you work under these conditions. ;D
