Wiring Harness Woes... Overcome?
I’ve been bitching about this wiring harness for a while now. My main issue was that a lot of what used to be hidden away in the old headlight housing is now exposed due to there being no room for it in the new ones. This meant that most of the block connections had to be simply insulated with electrical tape and bound together down the side of the headstock. Considering this was a bit of a...
Damn she looks better with the new mirrors… must get a new photo… after she’s clean perhaps. Not sure when that will happen in this weather though. I WANT NEW DOWNPIPES AND A STUBBY MICRON!!!… sorry <_<
Don't buy shit indicators
If you’re a regular reader of this space (which you’re almost certainly not and if you are please make yourself known to me and I will be very happy) then you may remember that I purchased some new indicators, quite a while back. You may also remember that said indicators were a little dodgey - not very bright, one line of LEDs on the back right didn’t come on etc. Well as for...
I did some things...
What did I do?… Oh yeah! I finally got around to making my headlights fit properly, with all the bolts that are supposed to be holding them on instead of just most of them, which is nice. Also I fitted some new mirrors because some twat reversed into my bike and knocked it over and was then either too weak, too scared or too much of a cunt to pick it up. More on this soon, incl. pictures!...
How to remove washer type 33bhp restrictor kits...
As previously declared (I never promised anything) here is the ‘How to’ guide for removing washer type 33bhp restrictor kits. I emphasise washer type because obviously, there are other kinds of kits, for instance throttle restrictors that prevent the throttle from being opened all the way, there are also some other kinds and you can find out what they are by doing a quick google of...
Forgot to update the battery issue thing...
I haven’t posted to here for a bit because I got distracted actually fixing the problems I was having as opposed to just documenting them and hoping they’d go away. Long story short, I was riding to meet some friends in Cambridge a couple of weeks ago and as I was sitting in the middle of a box junction waiting to turn right, grip heaters on the go (not sure that makes a difference or...
Before I fitted the new indicators i mentioned in the last post I was having some issues where the bike would start on a cold morning, konk out and then refuse to start again - the battery would just die and you could hear the starter motor struggling until it just didn’t turn over at all. I then fitted the indicators and this problem got worse (this was all in the space of about a 2 weeks...
Welcome back me...
Have been majorly busy lately so haven’t posted for a while but I now feel the need to show off the work i’ve been doing on the bike so now begins a long stream of photos of my GS500 in various states of repair/modification…

It’s been a while since I’ve posted on this bad boy but even longer since I’ve indulged in a bit of rinse FM. Indeed. Follow the link to N-Type’s 10th Jan 2012 podcast. 2 Hours of purely beautiful filth. Enjoy muthfuckas!
I need to whine to someone about life but I don’t want to sound like a little bitch to my friends so I’ll write about it where no one will read it. You can probably tell school is coming to an end now from the change in tone of these posts. I don’t think you’ll be seeing any more posts about how much GT5 I’ve been playing or how awesome my old PS2 games are -_-. Now...

Was looking for photographers who specialize in push bikes (no pun intended) for my potential uni project and came across this guy. His portfolio is pretty spectacular but I love the freeride section.
Ironic 'Hitler reacts to SOPA' video works on... →
It’s back to work tomorrow so I’ve hit the library early. Doing some research on SOPA, PIPA, ACTA, FML etc in preparation for my final project and came across this video. You might remember the downfall videos that lots of people were making a little while ago, I haven’t seen one for a while but I thought it was pretty funny that someone should make one now, about this. Enjoy!
Also I found Fran’s dice… … Also, sorry for the lies…

My recent fascination with The Black Keys and subsequent rediscovery of Kings of Leon have distanced me slightly from the driving mechanical basslines that I know and love. Noisia are back in my bedroom and it’s awesome
