@  SneachtaMadadh : (08 May 2015 - 08:38 AM) I suspected this but needed confirmation. Thanks Captain for you response
@  captain caveman : (07 May 2015 - 03:30 PM) Sneachtamadadh sounds like your tightening clamps to tight, only need to be tight, just nip them tight
@  SneachtaMadadh : (06 May 2015 - 09:04 PM) Hi, My head is melted - cleaned me carbs - reinstalling them - everything slipped in as it should except the air box clamps - they slowly move off the carbs when i tighten them. The head clamps are seated and easy but i can't seem to seat the air clamps - any suggestions :-) sorry if I'm asking in the wrong place

@  aPoPhus : (05 May 2015 - 02:52 PM) Hiya Guys, where can i get those 2 rubber things that fit between the 2 top fins on the front side of the head ?
@  Fujifilm : (04 May 2015 - 09:42 PM) Thanks CC will get on the case and ask about luggage cases,
@  captain caveman : (04 May 2015 - 06:20 PM) Hi Fujifilm the XJR is a great to tour on, fuel injection 2014 are still available in the old shape, as with buying new bike nothing to worry about as you know you will have warranty to rely on, be cheeky you could get dealer to throw the hard luggage cases in on the deal, also there is FJR1300 which is perfect for touring has it all
@  Fujifilm : (03 May 2015 - 10:39 PM) Hi All.  I am just checking out my local dealers looking to buy a XJR to go and tour Spain. Will be two up so the latest model is not suitable, need that big comfy seat of the earlier models presume that will be 2014 or before. Any purchase advice would be much appreciated. Bit about me age, 66 started riding on my 16th Birthday. Have two bikes at present Duck 848 corse se and a CBR600F , one will have to go to make room for an XJR . Hope they will make a good touring bike just love the looks, not tried one yet hope to get a road test this week. Any you guys live Manchester way. Thanks for any help in advance.
@  Chris Vincent : (03 May 2015 - 05:02 PM) Cheers cc good luck with your plastering m8
@  ianmack : (02 May 2015 - 07:26 AM) Do the forks from an SP fit a regular xjr

Billet Bike Bits make custom CNC parts for XJR's. They made my new yokes which are spot on. A set of custom yokes including stem from them will cost you about £400.00, depending on how fancy you want them. The price never changed and they were delivered here in about three weeks - on the exact date they said they would be delivered. If you want any CNC custom bits visit www.billetbikebits.com

yep billet brain used to come here, asked for some help on different levers for different models then dissappeared to make a fortune on ebay. Hasnt been seen since nov 08 here you go seemed quite dear at the time especially the levers compared to adjustable titax and crg stuff.But the yokes dont seem a bad price.

I went for the black option in the end, save all that polishing mallarky in the winter. Should look great with the gold forks that I've got.
They are R1 forks that I have sent away to be lengthened a little and resprung for the heavier bike. Will show you later how it goes and looks.

Billet bike bits just made me some solid body bushings for my car,not much to them,basically just 12 thick washers lol,cost me 60 + 8 postage,more than i wanted to pay but i couldn't have drilled a 1.5" hole in a piece of alli myself and cheapest from States was $52 + whatever they want to charge for shipping so would probably be about same but the ones from the States are only 6 pieces.

The spindle shaft is made of solid aluminium, but you can press this spindle out and press your steel original instead

I'd love to put a set of them with some of the new GSXR1000 front forks which have the black fork tubes.

That would work well I think.

Anyway now I'm off to have a sulk since the Mrs said no I can't have them and I'm not allowed to buy the fork either. She didn't rule out a set of Gold Ohlins though so I may have to do me some interweb shopping while she isn't looking!!!
