  1. lol...not bored just interested.
  2. Just been trying to trace my bikes engine its a 1052 1100j slabby number U704-107427 , looking at the Suzuki gsxr records as far as i can tell it was supposed to be a model for France/ W.Germany with a question mark on whether it was restricted. I have the original sales receipt from 1988 - sold by Crooks in barrow in furnace with the matching engine number and so i know the motor hasnt been swapped, did some of these bikes end up in Uk and would it have been restricted at the time? - it aint now BTW ,124bhp dyno readout.
  3. Does anyone know if a pair of front Tokico 6 pot brake calipers off a gen 1 Busa will fit slingshot forks, ie offset and spacing etc?....i've just acquired a nice pair of mounting plate adaptors for my 1100J slabby to allow 90mm Nissin (and possibly others) calipers to be fitted and wondered if the 6 pots will fit, i know they are 90mm between hole centres just not sure about offsets. TIA.
  4. Just acquired a pair of Harris billet rearsets for my 1100j slabby off Eblag,for not much money and they polished up nicely....bargains are still out there!
  5. I've had success by holding the clutch lever in for 30 seconds with the motor running after a cold start, it seems to do the trick, clutch operates as normal when warmed up...i can live with it. Went for a decent 35 mile ride last saturday in beautiful weather, after that i can forgive the bike almost anything...this bike is a beast!
  6. After recently acquiring a Brembo clutch MC off a forum member i'm going to attempt to fit it this weekend to my 88 1100J, i've bled brakes and clutches before but never actually fitted a new MC, i'm guessing it should be a straightforward job... it already has a braided clutch line fitted so i plan on draining the system, uncoupling the hose at the old MC end ,fitting the new MC and resevoir , refilling the res and bleeding the system as normal, i'm reasonably spanner handy but if any one has any tips and advice on how to avoid problems they would be most welcome. TIA...Phil.
  7. Lots of work done and a very nice bike mate....Heres my newly acquired 1100j ,cant wait for the spring and a proper ride on it.
  8. Make sure you have connected the two wires on the Harness side and not the stand side of the junction , sounds like your switch is still live.
  9. Changed the oil/filter for the proper stuff and its still doing it, have drawn the conclusion that the plates are sticking cos the oil and ambient temperature are so low at the moment, once the bike is thoroughly warmed there is no problem, so things should improve when the weather gets a bit warmer....so apologies to @clivegtowho i thought was taking the piss by saying warm it up for longer....
  10. The thing is i dont know what oil is in the bike, dealer I bought it off is now closed for xmas so cant ask. I always used Mobil 10w40 semi in my old 750j with no problems. And that's what I've just bought this time, I'll give it a go and see if it makes a difference.
  11. If it has been filled with the wrong type of oil and i drain it and refill with proper 10w40 should that do the trick or will i need strip it and clean the plates?
  12. Yeah I know...I've ordered some 10w40 to be sure.
  13. It's a hydraulic clutch and yes the oil was changed at a service just before I bought the bike,i have contacted the previous owner and he had no clutch issues, I'm wondering if the service put the wrong oil in it ,eg. fully synthetic !!
  14. Serious advice only please...lol.
