Michelin Pilot Road 3

Fitted new tyres to the Bulldog, went for an increased rear with a 180/55 and kept the front to the factory size. The 180 section rear looks great and fits with no clearance issues that I believe the 190 section can have. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v15/thejudderman/th_Bike%20Tyre.png http://i...

Re: new member intro

I bob on to check for new posts once every week or possibly more, but as a newcomer to the bike I'm not often much help.

I had a taller screen Dave, wish I'd have known, I cut it down a little while ago as I didn't like it!

Re: new member intro

...as an extra point to the above advice, do so without using any throttle, choke if needed but no throttle. Just thumb the starter and keep it pressed til the big old girl takes over!

Re: 190 Tyre

Thanks Axman, I had a look but I couldn't tell exactly from the photo's. I could see it was a 190, but now what the aspect ratio was (55/50 etc). I was looking at something like this; m In 190/60 most tyres seem to be the heavy cruiser/muscle bike tyres, which sound like they might be ideal for the ...

Re: 190 Tyre

It's a Problem (in Germany) if the Speedometer Shows a lower Speed as you drive. No Chance to get this Street Legal (with Stock Speedometer). Thanks Baumi... It seems to overestimate the speed at the minute, so I'm thinking that it'd either be more accurate, or if the speedo drive is on the front w...

Re: 190 Tyre

Resurrecting an old topic.... has anyone fitted a 190/60r17 rear tyre? Comparing them online to my current (170/60r17) tyre there's an increase in rolling diameter from 199.74mm to 207.28mm with the width increasing by the given 20mm. I'm mainly wanting the tyre increase for the larger diameter and ...

Re: new member intro

Good stuff Dave... Doc - The are SP Engineering as far as I can tell. They're badged as 'Demon' on the top silencer strap. They're also chuffing loud! I love the noise they make (I don't have db killers), there's pop's and bang's aplenty. It is too loud at times, there's been plenty of pedestrians s...

Re: new member intro

I'm sure there's a good few UK owners out there, but whether they the type to join online forums, and especially online forums whose primary users speak a different language, I don't know. We're a bit English speaking centric as a nation, whereas for our German brethren likely get on far better with...

Le Mans 2017

Just getting this out there nice and early. Planning on doing Le Mans next year and at the minute hoping to go on the Bulldog.

No sure if anyone else has the same idea, would seem a good excuse to meet and share a drink if anyone else was planning on going.

Re: new member intro

Welcome Dave, I'm pretty new round these parts too. Like you I'd admired them from afar for a while, a few years actually, then took the plunge earlier this year and bought one.

Aside from that, I'm afraid I can't help you with the upgrade query, and I'm a fair way from you too!

Re: Hello! New Owner of a 13 year old bike!

Despite not being able to find a replacement windscreen just yet, I decided to take the plunge and modify the existing MRA one I have on. Hoping I didn't muck it up as I cut it up with the grinder, it came out pretty well I thought... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v15/thejudderman/IMG_10561.jpg ...

Thanks WullDee :thumbup:

Google Translate here I come!

Re: Hello! New Owner of a 13 year old bike!

Hi WullDee... Yes, I'm not certain if the plate angle is legal in the UK either, but it doesn't seem to attract too much attention. It's been fairly roughly cut off, so I'd maybe like to try make it look tidier as well as lowering the angle a little. I'll have a little look for the download you ment...

Re: Hello! New Owner of a 13 year old bike!

Thanks again.... Kevin - I'm up near Skipton, North Yorks. Picked the bike up from a fella far side of Hull, had looked at another one over near Lancaster. It's a non original colour of course, and was registered new elsewhere in the UK first according to the book. But despite those things that migh...
