Irish Motorbike and Scooter Show 2015

I went to the Irish Motorbike and Scooter show in the RDS Dublin today, but I had to leave unexpectedly so I missed most of it.

I was particularly disappointed to miss the Flat Track Racing...

Soviet Shark Helmet

So The Soviet didn't really dig the CCCP Bubblevisor helmet. Instead, she asked me to put a red star on her old matte-black Shark lid.

So I did...

Kawasaki 636 Stunt Bike Wiring

I finished off Daryl Brereton's stunt bike this evening.

I didn't rewire it from scratch, I just swapped out the old skanky loom for a much tidier one from another 636 and did a few small custom changes.

The changes were mostly to do do with removing the switch-gear from the handlebars and relocating them out of harm's way. I relocated the switch-gear to one of the frame rails which conveniently happened to have a diameter of 22mm. This was pretty easy.

I also removed the ignition barrel and replaced it with a single toggle switch located in the safest place I could find to put it - safe in the sense that it's unlikely to get hit with anything and safe in that it's not going to stab anyone. This isn't particularly straightforward because the bike is fitted with an anti-theft device specifically to stop the ignition from being bypassed in this way.

I also did a bodge on the neutral switch so the bike will start in gear and I rewired the cooling fan so it comes on with the new ignition switch and not with the thermostat.

Hey You!

"Yeah, you with the 1200 GS!

Stop buying master-cylinder protectors and side-stand switch covers from the Touratech website and then boasting online about how your bike will go anywhere and just go out and ride the fucking thing!"
