  1. Hi folks started working on the exup on and off last while , looking for bits and bobs to finally build the dream bike I've lusted over since 1999 the beautiful Nori Haga Yamaha R7 OW02 and finally I'm almost there . I'll update the thread in the next few days with a few pics but I can honestly say now it's almost finished ...... Steve

    welcome to the site..doesnt matter wot size ov bike you ride the important thing is your on 2wheels and you'll get plenty ov encouragement on here to move up to something with bigger cc's...lol
  11. the race rear seat will come bare its just the seat unit itself...no subframe checkout ebay for a race seat ,style, model etc your after or do a google image search the only thing youd have to do is fabricate your seat mounts and thats a pretty simple job i'm sure between both yourself and chad you could do a good job
  12. go on the kwak forum av a look around you'll prob find spec measurements ur after without difficulty...if u av to force it to fit ...good chance its gona break at some point and if your riding it when it happens ....OUCH..! Why not check out some race body work most fibreglass race seats can be made to fit virtually any rear subframe and as you cant weld ...go dwn that route...fibreglassings pretty easy and if u screw it up its easy to fix
  13. 15yrs for me but age means nothing these days does it....?
  14. ok mate its ur bike but i think ur mak'in a HUGE ...!!!!!!!!!!!! mistake takin the grinder to this bike put it back to original...c'mon mate,i just aint a fan ov streetfightered sports bikes..!!!!!!!

  17. Sadly i've decided to put my much loved 86 supra up for sale as ive just bought a scooby sti.... its totally standard and original , not perfect but in vry good condition its 26yrs old remember, its been serviced by toyota most ov its life and ovr the last 3 mths ive had it fully serviced timing belt and all fluids including dif and g/box, its an auto with a/c power steering and all the electric working as they should..genuine 204,000 miles on the clock 1 owner before me, ive owned it for 6mths...but as above the scooby forces sale, ive nowhere to store the supra As for how much i wont take a penny less than £1400 for it she's worth more than that in parts alone..! Any1 interested please get in touch ...tho i'd like the car to goto some1 who'll enjoy it
  18. gimmie a shout on the forum matey if you need help advice wi the bike i've owned 2 in the past and work on most yamahas on a regular basis ive got an 89 thou exup myself , tbh if i was you i'd put the bike back to standard it'll be worth vry good money as the 400 maket is a thriving buisiness in the second hand market and fzr400's in as near original condition DO fetch good money...also a massive fav with the track day boys...excellent little bike

  22. simples . ..aprillia tuono....v-twin power and style , does the lot specially the R version with better spec getting affordable now too
  23. Before you strip the engine take the cam chain tensioner off place it in a bowl ov engine oil and pump the tensioner piston a few times thy get dry on loose slight pressure this should reprime it if this doesn't work fit a new cam chain tensioner (the manual adjustment type if you can they're way better )1st and try it, they get noisy when they're worn. also the chain guide maybe worn but i believe it can be replaced without a complete strip down.
  24. I have to AGREE totally wi you Bro ive only been on the site a few mths myself ....Great bunch ov people on here its friendly, great banter but the best bit for me is your always made to feel welcome...FANTASTIC
