    I had Oxford grips fitted to my Fireblade, prior to that I was thawing my hands on the engine at every set of lights on winter morning commutes. I've only needed the first or second heat level. I always switch them off manually as I'm over having battery problems.

    unfortunately I work with clowns who do things like leave your wipers up when they walk past your car, I envision someone walking past my bike and pushing random buttons!

    My Oxford heater grips had a built in cut off if it continued to draw while not running. Battery saver.

    Wire them up to your ignition people, so that they can only work then the bike is on, it's not rocket science.

    Good idea, you'd think the dealer who fitted mine would have thought of that!

    Missus was looking to replace her aging Mazda 323, so started looking at newer second hand Hyundais, Mitsubishis, Ford Fiesta Trends, etc, etc...

    Managed to encourage to choose something else (and more satisfying/fun) for similar money. (Cos people are still scared of French cars here) Woot!





    Sweet chassis, 6 speed gearbox (no DSG or paddles), 200hp, and just a tad over 1000kg - a proper old-school hot hatch, but with leather and mod cons.

    edit: Always loved the 205GTI in my youth - now finally get it's grandchild.

    Every bike is an impulse buy.

    It's getting a thorough checking over in the workshop to get it into as proper working order as it should be. Then upgrade/replace stuff as required.

    One thing that's equally great and dangerous with these is that there is so much that can be done, but at the same time some parts are no longer available.

    Going to try and keep it as original as possible. Even though I know in the back of my mind I can get a 779cc big bore kit (or simply slot a ZX9R motor in there), 04/05 ZX10R forks and triple clamps also fit straight in these giving you radial brakes (which opens up a whole new world), an 04/05 ZX10R swingarm also fits.

    Must try and contain myself before I go and spend $20k on a bike I picked up for 3.

    I had been eyeing that very zx7r off myself for a while. I miss my old one and the price was definitely right.

    aaaawwwwww. had my eye on that one too but realistically not ready yet to push the button. apparently the zx9 motor is quite a bit heavier and puts a lot more weight bias to the front end???

    see linky these guys have molds of the Kawasaki zx7 superbike fairings, would be very groovy street-bike with WSB fairing with endurance light, race rear end/seatpad, AMA 3-snorkeler airbox and dual polished steel side cans setup i reckon

    I cant help it if your perceptions don't match my reality

    tested, draws down the battery too far, a relay is safe
