I'm going to have to give away or throw away like half of my posessions by volume because I never actually used them and I need more space for motorcycle stuff. Is this what it feels like to find a real hobby?
>>26453147yes anon, welcome

>>26453270Been busy with work and just constant rain so it's like the 4th or 5th time riding the bike since owning it. Was out testing the clip-ons that I recently installed and saw an empty lot figured it's time to actually have an outside pic for once.
>>26453283Ahh ok. Seems you're in the southwest or west coast. Get out more, I'm literally trapped in my house by snow. Ride on my behalf.

You guys ever do any serious mods on your bikes? Thinking of putting a small windshield on my SV650 for highway speeds. I remember the general consensus was "why mod a bike to be better when you can just buy a better bike".
>>26453307>why mod a bike to be better when you can just buy a better bikepoorfag copiumMod your bike to your heart's desire. Make it as practical or obnoxious as you want. It's a hobby, don't care what others think.

>>26453125>>26453318Calling all goldwing anons! Particularly the ones with older ones.There is an old guy with a 93 Goldwing in my area, it has 50k miles and was only used for one big trip almost 30 years ago to the grand canyon. It has sat for the majority of that time, but it does run and ride. The guy is too old to ride it, and his son doesn't want it. He wants $2500 for it, but I think I can get him down to 2k. Is it worth it? Is it too far gone, and how hard are bigger driveshaft bikes like this to work on? My current bike is a 600, is this too much to step up to? I'm going to look at it this Thursday.
>>26453331My current bike is a 600 that weighs 400lb btw. Forgot to include weight.

noob here with a dumbass question: do you need to chain the oil filter every time you change your oil? I'm gonna change my oil again at the end of the month, last time I changed it I bought an oil filter. Should I do it again? Or is there some way you can 'tell' you need a new filter?
>>26453241the absolute state of supersport riders
>>26453636Yes change your oil filter. It's got a bunch of old oil and all the shit your old oil has in it. Filters aren't expensive, amazon has cheap packs of them for like $10-30 for a 5 pack depending on your model.
>>26453636What does the manual say?
>>26453636Oil has cleaning additions to it and as it flows through the engine all the dirt goes to the filter. Idk if it's on all bikes but on the gn when the filter is too clogged a valve opens and lets the oil pass unfiltered. Also that's a good way to tell a good oil: when you change it and the filter looks dirtier than with another oil brand, that means the new oil is cleaning the shit that the old one wasn't
>>26453636If you change the oil early and don't wait for the manuals recommended you can change the filter every 2 oil changes
>>26453651>>26453649>>26453645>>26453642Aight cool I'll buy a new filter. Need to buy the oil too anyway so I can get both no problem. Still don't really have a good way of capturing/disposing of the oil either. Besides the ol "cities problem now" method
>>26453666On average yes
>>26453659Get a cake pan and dump it into a bucket with 3 trash bags. Wrap that shit up tight and toss in the garbage. Problem solved.
>>26453668Wow I wouldn’t crap at work for $5.40 an hour

>>26452185he brought it from some stupid kid who laid it down a lot and busted the shifter case, my friend only rode it once and said it had 0 oil pressure and overheatedits all in pieces because he tore it down to replace that casing that broke but gave up on fully assembling it like the pussy he is He paid $5000 and with no negotiation would take $2500 today, i was thinking more like $1000 previous pic was not related

do I go for my first rainy ride? Is it miserable? will my bike hate it?
>>26454015if you have rain gear its nothing special, bike is fine just need to oil chain afterwards
>>26453857There’s something about basedjack variations that I find really off-putting. I think it’s because the people who make them are clearly seething with rage but are pretending they aren’t and they’re just having a laugh.
>>26454031There's way too much time and effort put into them to be anything else
>>26454015I rode in the rain in my first month with the learners licence and I had no previous motorbike experience

anyone going to austin for moto gp? went there solo last year and camped
>>26454073Tell me about the FZ1. I’m kinda torn between it and the VFR as a sporty bike with a relaxed riding position and decent wind protection.
>>26454086its like having an r1 but comfy. previous owner put a tune, exhaust and filter upgrade so it was maybe even a bit faster than a stock r1. sold it some time ago and got a ninja zx6r. miss the top end speed
>>26454089Why did you sell it for a smaller more aggressive sport bike?
>>26454091because i've started transitioning into a woman and wanted something cuter to ride

>>26454093fuck off impersonator, changing bikes every year is based
>>26454114i've been changing my bike every years because i put about 75,000 km on the bike over the year so i need a new work horse to deliver food on every year.at least that was before i bought the PCX and i hope to put 150,000 km on it before i need to replace it. that should take two years.so tell; me again about how awesome you are.
>>26454095more fun if you live in a twisty environment. Houston was perfect for the FZ life, ninja zx6r not so much
>>26454124some other bikes that i've owned. plus a mobile cage.
>>26454126For sure, its like dirt bikes. Depends on where you live, in arkansas we have nothing but twisty roads and rural/inner city stuff so im excited to get a zx4r if its good. The times I went on the oklahoma turnpike I wish i had a hayabusa that shit was so boring
>>26454132here in houston you need +500cc to not get mowed down on the higways. flow of traffic is normally 70-80mph

are ADVs the toyota camry of the motorcycle world?
>>26454578More like the SUVs or crossovers. They do a bunch of things well enough for most people and they're big and comfy. They make dualsport and supersport riders seethe but unless you're doing deeply rutted technical offroad or dragging knee on a closed track, ADVs are enough bike.

First 2 up ride of the season yesterday. I couldnt get the cardos to work. Fucking overpriced Israeli garbage.
>>26454410>>26454429Sounds like a good setup
so, bought a 390 adventure. I should have the luggage fitted to it by the end of march, but I've never been camping.What more is there to packing shit and heading off in a random direction? >>26454073just looks like he's camping in a playground/city park.Where do I shit?
>>26454609If you're in the US there are designated campgrounds on public land all over the place, with shitters and firepits.
>>26454606It's ok for short weekend trips but still need to figure out the food situation when I'm in more remote spots. I'm thinking mre and water might be the way to go
>>26454609>Where do I shit?this is why i dont go on "adventures", im not shitting in the woods, ive evolved past this.
>>26454616I tend to just make meals like stirfry, wrap them in tinfoil at home, then cook/heat them on the fire when camping.pic not mine
>>26454609It was campgrounds outside Austin. Around this area
>>26454621That's a good idea. Will try that on the next outing
>>26454616>>26454621Dehydrated potato, spam, and jerky. I live on this while camping. Also sardines, many dines. You don't need anything fancy, you can pack a lot of this stuff as needed. MREs take up a stupid amount of space.
>>26454629Awesome. Great bike, looks like a ton of fun.
Nothing has changed in two years.

Add this used up cunt to the collage too.
>>26454629I've been looking at my state's trail riding system and there seem to be absolutely none within four-six hours of me. Which isn't a problem, but frankly I'd like getting some practice close to home as I'm rather clueless about the outdoors.I now realize that the fun looking road along the train tracks is a no go as well. And pretty much everything's paved.How do you find campgrounds besides the marker on a map?If I find a nice path along some wilderness nearby, how can I tell if I'm supposed to go down it on a motorcycle or I'm trespassing on someone's land?
>>26454652I also hear people talk about "fire roads" but Have no clue what they are or where to find them.
>>26454652what are you, 15? how are you so retarded and helpless. Motorcycles are for chads gtfo of here
>P-PPEASE TALK TO MEbattery cuck you are the definition of pathetic and impotent.
>>26454609BLM land often allows camping wherever. national forests are usually camping wherever. >>26454609>Where do I shit?In a hole. I usually like to dig it near a tree so I can lean back real far and hold the tree, but you could free crouch it too, just less comfortable. Make sure to miss your pants.

>>26454709fair enough. I see 2-3 year old used bikes for like 80% of their MSRP and think "why not just buy new and get the latest model that hasn't been abusedbut you're right; buying new would add another 50% between fees, taxes, and whatever else

>>26454686If anyone answers yes they probably can't shift good. https://youtu.be/dGMBUN_DdC4
>>26454686Depends.What bike were you riding before? Combination of seat height, seating position, and wind protection can make bikes feel a lot slower than they really are.

>>26454686yes but its my first bike so I'd rather it be a little slow so i don't commit sudoku. desu its plenty of people to get me in trouble regardless. only noticable when i have to downshift to pass on hwy or maintain high revs when croozing. easily fixed with an upsized sprocket
>>26454791If it means anything, for some reason chan-x sometimes removes timestamps when it embeds videos.No clue why.
>>26454812plenty of power* FUCK
I just finished my spring tube up on the old 06 KLR. I'm looking it over thinking of what to do to it to make this riding season better. Last year I found it was too fat and tall for my skill level on some of the rutted out fire roads I used to like doing on my DR200. I'm thinking of installing some lowering links I got with the bike from the previous owner. Besides that some hand guards, fix the faded paint, and maybe an LED front headlight. Though if there's a way to just replace the whole face on this thing it would probably be better given how beat up I've made it. Thoughts?I've already done the doohickey, frame bolts, flush drain plug, skid plate, and luggage.
>>26454677No. Anyone who tells you “5+hp gain” Is a liar. Just makes your bike louder and run rich unless you re-map the fueling.

>>26454854Fuel injection will compensate, that's the whole point of it
>>26454879Motorcycle fuel injection is car injection from the 90s. It relies on >air (maf or map)>throttle pos>rpmThats it. It will increase based on airflow only as the table allows. A better flowing exhaust may in theory improve efficiency enough to increase airflow, but if it gets above (out of range) of the table, fuel will only increase linearly and the engine will run lean90s fuel injection did make use of narrowband o2 sensors, but this would often be only in a ‘cruise’ state and would need some conditions to activate. Modern cars have more advanced tables and even widebands, motorcycles are a way off from this and likely may never see it unless euro7,8 or 9 necessitate it
>>26454686As a first bike it has exactly enough power for me. I get good pulling power up to at least 85mph, which is the fastest I've ever taken it on roads, and the engine never bogs unless I'm doing something retarded like a standing start in fifth gear. Could it go faster? Yeah. Could *I* go faster? Probably not yet.
Anybody here had a cardo spirit HD? I dont really ride with freinds so i dont need to drop top dollar for the super premium mesh vesions. Just want to have enough volume/ fidelity to hear my tunes and maybe talk to somebody over the phone.

I will never subscribe to the idea that one must master every cc class before to upgrade to the next, if you want to haul ass from the bottom of 5th buy a litre bike and work the tendies off over the next summer >>26454912On my 2008 lexus there was>maf>intake temp>throttle position>rpm>wideband bank 1>wideband bank 2>exhaust tempNot much extra but enough to be noticeable. I put a catback on it, which made it super loud. A week later it got quieter and probably faster
>>26454918Is there even a single person who is on yammie noob's side of this?
>>26454928why he flip like that
>>26454942>looks up>oh fug ids a car :D>grabs a fist full of front brake
>some euro5-compliant bikes are not available in EuropeWhy?
>>26454921I don't need to master "every" CC class. I went from MSF learner bikes to the CB500X and my next bike will be 900+, probably an MT-09 or a Z900RS.
>>26454956Because they're probably sold as California version in the States.
>>26454942He gorilla gripped the front brake probably
>>26454921>A week later it got quieter and probably fasterA poor mixture sounds quieter and thicker than rich so it probably got weaker
>>26454918I don’t know if GB would win this race but I hope yammie takes him up on this offer.
>>26454972Who? What is even happening?
>>26454983cringe e-celeb drama see video above
>>26454857>>26454857>>26454857Let me specify it must be from aliexpress and cheap >>26454876Too big and expensive
>>26454989>see video above.>can't be explained in under thirty seconds.>youtubers.I've lost interest. Cheers.
>>26454677I got an extra 10 mph top speed out of my SR400 ditching the huge stock cat/muffler, top speed is now limited by gearing instead of power so a definite improvement. It can vary from vehicle to vehicle and can depend on exhaust design and fueling as well. What bike do you have?
>>26454677only if you're going to run a fuel controller/dyno tune.Keep in mind that's what most of the increase on the sales page for aftermarket exhausts comes from. What's more hilarious is how little difference it actually makes even after a professional tune.
>>26455019And you should be looking at curves, not just a peak number. Many will just fuck with the rev limiter to end up showing a higher hp figure.
>>26455023Yeah some will lose power throughout 80% of the rev range and make a little more peak power right at the top.
>>26455026My gn got stronger with the bored harley exhaust vs original one with clogged cat but I think if I could make the current one more restrictive it'll be stronger
>tfw sister typed into google "Gifts for motorcyclists.">Got a fortnine video.>She bought me a miniature air compressor.Thanks sis and ryan.>this thing pulls almost 8 amps, according to the manual.I fear for my bikes electrical system.
>>26454993Yammie noob reacted to gixxys videos, said he had no skill, offered to see him on the track. Gixxy responded, accepted the challenge. Fin.There is not even a question about who will win. I don't think anyone is on yammie's side. He's a classless tool who squidded himself into a porsche, gixxy is a genuine and likeable person. Still a squid, but a better squid than any other, probably.
>>26454983>>26454989It's the best, and pretty much only e-celeb drama we have.We may as well enjoy it. At least it's something different from the usual arguments
>>26455050Can't believe how he did his boy. Not that I like spite that much but yammie is a fucking retard.
>>26455051You saved my picture. <3 She's looking more abused nowadays lol >>26454832
>>26455074yeah I saw it in the archive sometimes and was pretty sure that was a USGI bivy.
Anyone watch Bart? I love the format and bikes he talks about but he sounds like a child reading out loud in class and constantly injects his shitty opinions. Is there a similar channel run by a smarter dude?
>>26455077Sure is. I've been a bear burrito many times in it.
Thoughts on putting a Killswitch on the ignition coil of my carbureted to make pop sounds?
>>26455090Just unplug the sparkplug boot to the sparkplug
Guy forgot to include some bolts for my rear rack now I can't install it
>>26455095NoWould using the button cause damage to the engine or the electronics, it's my only mean of transport and I can't afford an engine rebuild
>>26455102call him a nigger
>>26455079Its just another one of those shit new channels that says a bunch of shit others have said before using other peoples images and videos with the only selling point being a snazzy script, music and scene transitions. A bunch of them have cropped up recently, they are like the final evolution of the youtube videoessay and the quality has gone down as low as it can. Hopefully a new format comes to light soon
>>26455109Get a life
im so excited for Ebikes like you wouldnt believe bros
>>26455050>Fin.a few more things happened apparently>maxxy wants to rent a neural location track and sell tickets and join the race>yammie accepted it seems>brian636 might join as wellits cringe youtube drama but I need to live vicariously through this shit because the cold has taken away riding for me. All i have is work, school, gym, and waiting for SEA to drop more info on the zx4rr
>>26455122Don't be. They have all the problems of electric cars with none of the mass/volume budget to offset them. Even a 250cc motorcycle is better than the best ebike.
>>26455107Kind of want to but I still need the bolts from him
>>26455144Compromise.>Hey, Mr. Usain Bolt, do you have the bolts for this rack?
>>26455109>shit new channels that says a bunch of shit others have said before using other peoples images and videos That part is fine, there's a demand for it considering how popular that channel is despite how dumb the guy sounds. I just want a more autistic narrator.
>>26455116>says the guy who watches wikipedia article summaries on youtube >>26455150>stupid low quality shit is super popularAre you new to the internet? Sign out of your youtube account and view the front page, you’ll see what absolute shit is truly popular. Remember the average iq is 99
are most older dual sport wheels capable of fitting tubeless dual sport tires these days?
>>26455131>break-though room temp super conducer tech>perovskites/solar panel tech break-through>more break-though batt chemistry>less partsnig if youre not building your own ebike your not doing it rightyoure only limited by what you know and foresight
>>26455185You can run tubeless with tunes in them if that's what you mean otherwise no
>>26455198That's a dude.
>durr muh ecelebsHeres what happened>yammie noob reaches out to gixxers business email>offers to work together for more publicity>strictly lay out who gets what and what lines are not crossed>gixxer agreed because despite how much 4ch loves him hes still a small channel>yammie needs the boost ever since he got burnned for firing spite>the fucking endThis will be incredibly scripted
>>26455205I don't know who either are.From what little I care they found a way to expense a track day with each other and bring views to both channels.
>>26455198>room temperature superconductorsIf we had those then fusion power would be stupidly cheap and we could synthesize gasoline out of atmospheric CO2 to keep feeding ICE engines. A fuel truck has less transmission losses than a major power line and a fuel tank can be refilled to capacity more often than a battery.
>>26455209Yep. Basically. Which is nothing out of the ordinary i just get tilted off my rocker when i see anons eating it up like they just discovered WWE.
>>26455205Why bother firing spite when he's just going to end up with spite 2: gixxer edition
>>26455229Honestly Spite would be a better partner for Gixxerbrah anyway since they have complementary styles of bike they like. You know, like Yammie was before he choked to death on cocks.
>>26455045What is the gauge of the wire?I don't doubt they claim to use 7Ah but send a headphone wire to plug in the battery.
>>26455155Yeah it's horrific every time I'm not signed in. Got any recommendations? I liked ronald finger's GPZ restoration but he normally does cars. Also 49ccScoot for lathe autism. I watch Revzilla stuff and F9 too but everything else is one off/small channels when I'm looking for something specific.
>>26455255It's unlabeled.But I did put a clamp meter on it, trying to inflate a 30psi to 33PSI using the battery tender terminals it just did 4A.This bastard is loud as fuck.
Someone make new bread
>>26455278You spergs won't like the one I make
>>26455263>This bastard is loud as fuck.Not a real problem when using a emergency tire pump tho.I was thinking in get one of those really small manual pumps for small trips. I mainly run 21PSI in the front and 26~28 in the back, so a manual pump should do the job...
>>26455185They can, but you have to do some work.https://www.advrider.com/f/threads/3m-4411n-sealing-tape-tubeless-conversion.1147330/

>>26453331I think this thread is cooked but:>Goldwing maintenance is very expensive. It will probably need 1k of servicing at least.>Goldwing parts can be hard to find if you're not in USA or Japan. For 2k I think it's fine, keeping in mind you'll probably pay another thousand for maintenance.Driveshafts are fine it's less maintance than a chain.
