@  captain caveman : (10 August 2014 - 12:39 PM) Put a lump of timber between pistons making sure pistons dont pop out, push piston backwards and forwards to free them up
@  captain caveman : (10 August 2014 - 12:37 PM) Hi Grumpy sounds like your Brake calliper pistons are sticking, take callipers off and give them a good clean
@  Grumpy Gnome : (09 August 2014 - 09:11 AM) Hi out there. I am returning back to riding a bike after a break of 35 years !!, I have purchased a 2005 XJR 1300. After riding it a couple of times I have noticed a rattle on the front near side disc caliper. The rattle goes away when I pull the brake lever. Any ideas anyone.
@  captain caveman : (08 August 2014 - 02:44 PM) Work stops fun always the way

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!!!
