  1. Im not sure if changing it affects my MOT so i opted for these clipons so I can remove them during MOTs Wow thanks for the detailed response, definitely need to sharpen up my electricity knowledge haha
  2. So my headlights are pretty mediocre at night so I'm looking to install these aftermarket headlights in addition. I'm just worried that these extra may draw too much power so I'm not sure how it may affect the battery or damage it? (im horrendous with electricity stuff). Is there also a way to check the maximum load the battery can output? Cheers
  3. The 650 was a lil too slow for me.. so I upgraded to a 950 . Sorry Stu and others that said I should get the z1000.. but my short legs can only flat foot this baby
  4. Yes, its from factory, although my key looks identical to a ninja 300 with no imobiliser Mine seems like a normal slim key with no chip in it luckily! Thanks, thought i could save some cash doing it outside the dealer
  5. So i lost a key.. and im planning to order a new one. Its just a normal key (not a smart one) so i was wondering if you would need a dealer to do it or you could just cut the key anywhere? Bike has an immobiliser so im not sure if it changes anything. tia!
  6. I had a used cb125f after my cbt and thing runs like a dream. Kept 80% of its value when reselling it as well (i bought it used) If seat height is a primary concern id have a look at the msx 125 however!
  7. Has to be down in power.. but do you feel that at all riding this beauty?
  8. But it helps me slide my massive phone in with ease
  9. I cant say im not impressed.. it does stop any fluids from leaking in (or out). Great waterproofing, halfords should definitely stock up on these
  10. I wear bull-it jeans and DXR jackets, not super well-known brands but the quality and waterproofing seems to hold up after years of use. Havent tested its abrasion resistance but i dont plan to anytime soon.
  11. Variable rev ranges are the best, fortnine did a great video explaining why and it does make sense logically.
  12. the XSR is basically a retro hooligan MT09 - but since you dont want to be tempted id go with the xjr. Both have plenty of power regardless The new CB650 and CB1000s are also nice naked retro options if you have cash to splash
  13. Commuting 40 miles everyday is definitely not an enjoyable experience on a 125. I had a CB125F and 60mph is using around 95% of all its power AND its quite unstable cruising at that speed given its light weight. Is it doable? Yes. Enjoyable? Not a chance. If youre planning to commute on a bike long-term then id advise doing a DAS and get a bigger bike. For your commute, an R3 or equivalent would he well adequate
  14. I'm once again asking for your motorcycle advice (perhaps financial too after buying). Currently im torn between the Kawasaki Z900 and the Z1000, I sat on both and the Z900's lower seat height + 12kg lighter makes it feel much lighter and flickable than the Z1000, but the styling of the Z1000 and the extra power is also very tempting. I havent managed to test ride either since im buying used. I'm upgrading from a 650, so im not sure if the 122 ponies of the z900 would make me crave for more power. I'm very torn between both so opinions of any bikers that have ridden either of these would be much appreciated. TIA Pictures for reference: Green bike: Z1000 Grey/Red: Z900
  15. https://youtu.be/y7Ge5I34Tls - (warning: video may make you smile) Horrifying. Im disgusted by how the police took THIS long to do what they shouldve been doing years ago
