near cov/birmingham, at warwick uni

bet you're lovin the extra power!  did you have your license for 2 years or do the DAS?

I honestly can't imagine riding a 125 again.. just too scary with lorries trying to overtake on the a45

Post by: Kasumi on February 23, 2007, 04:01:58 PM
Heh i live near banbury, its pretty close to warwick uni, infact ive been to look round deciding if i wanted to go to Uni. Im 17 but have decided not to, going to bournmouth air traffic control collage instead. The power gain is fantastic. I still have to hold my license for another year before i can have the 33bhp restrictor kit removed. I can't see how it makes much of a difference really. I rode the bike once without it in (before i got it fitted) it is capable of doing 145 ish mph, and the acceleration was immense, after restriction the only noticable difference has been roll on power when your up to about 85, it doesn't accelerate as quick as it used to. And the top speed has been brought down to around about 105. Even though on the restriction certificate it says it should only reach 92 mph. Odd but then my bike is modified and the restrictor kits are standard for the bike not custom made. We should meet up some time for a ride in the summer?

whoah I didn't realise the zxr 4 was that quick.  I've only had the gs5 up to about 90 - I think it's got a weak ignition system/power problem (sometimes stops firing on one cylinder..) I need to do some more fault finding
ah my grandparents live in tadmarton, just outside banbury so i do (occasionally!) come down.  yeah definitely go for a ride.. :)
Title: Re: UK MEMBER LIST!
Post by: Kasumi on March 06, 2007, 10:29:54 PM
kool, when it reaches summer break we wil have to plan a ride. Yea the zx4 is an immense bike, mine has been to the track so has had lots of engine work etc... but still as stock they wil do 140 flat out. The only problem with it is its super revvy, theres not a lot of torque really but when you get to 10k revs it really takes off all the way up to the 14500 rpm rev limiter  :o

Im a Cheshire lad myself and think the UK meet up would be a really good idea.
What about a weekend thing? Stop somewhere to camp and get bladdered!  :cheers:

Suggestions anyone?  :dunno_white:

Currently riding a suzi EN125, pics soon (she looks and sounds awesome for a 125 with the mods!).
The noise off this thing drowns out my mates kwak 650! Seriously!

Hi guys, I'm in Bristol and I've had my GS500 from new since I passed my DAS last summer.  My bike is off the road right now while I get the damage repaired from when some nasty PoS tried to steal it a week ago.  I'm gutted that I don't have it to ride now the weather is turning nice.

I'd be up for a meet this summer, although I need some advance notice to keep the missus happy. Distance isn't an issue - I'm looking for an excuse to throw a tent on the back and do some big miles.  :cheers:

Hi all UK-ers. I'm from West Lothian, and work in Edinburgh.  I just joined the forum last week since buying a GS500E, my first 'big' bike, and really enjoying the new ride despite the recent wet weather.

I've also tried to join bikechatforums as recommended by hmmmnz, but didn't seem to get the registration email.  Any ideas - apart from re-registering with a new name?

Hey guys. I know ive not been online for a while but i now have a K7 GS500! Yay!
What about any ideas about where 2 meet this summer? Wales? Scotland? Feedback dudes.....
Title: Re: UK MEMBER LIST!
Post by: desilva on May 07, 2008, 10:49:31 AM
Could we pin everyone on a Frappr (http://www.frappr.com/?a=constellation_map&mapid=137440526983) map and work out somewhere reasonably central for everyone?

Wales is good for me 'cos I'm in Bristol.  :laugh:  I'd love to do Scotland - it would be good training for my iron butt (http://www.ironbuttuk.org/).  :cheers:

That'll do. :)  There's three on the map now... any more? This will be great if we can make it happen. I've even got the nod from my missus! :D
Title: Re: UK MEMBER LIST!
Post by: yooblonder on May 22, 2008, 07:29:37 AM
Great idea. I've added myself to the Frappr map.  Will be a challenge agreeing somewhere 'central'!

A up. Got my gs in jan, been playing and poking it for some time now as it only cost 725. its black with an aftermarket fariing, 33bhp kit.  Been making it into a winterproof bike since i got it and now summers here, so the heated grips, fork gaiters, rear hugger and three mud flaps are working great.  I love British weather!  I live in Derbyshire use the bike to travel to uni and hospital every day(i am a student nurse(i can hear the jokes coming already))  and last but not least i can not spell or use grammar for SH*T.
