CBF1000 - General Discussion / Re: tyres
« Last post by Shed on Yesterday at 09:41:46 PM »
Predominantly, the Road 5 is advertised as a sport touring tyre, the Power 5 is advertised for those that like a bit of 'sporty riding'. Leaving aside the endless 'which tyre is better argument' for a moment, the Michelin Power 5 is cheaper than the Road 5 (well, around my way it is).

Rough prices near me;  Power 5 front is 101 Power 5 rear 130 & Road 5 front is 108, Road 5 rear 139 so not a massive difference overall, but have they actually charged you for the dearer Road 5 and fitted the cheaper Power 5?  (If indeed this is the case at your garage prices that is).

Regardless, as broady says, they haven't actually fitted what you asked for. What does it say on your receipt?  :027:


(Also, are you anywhere near Kelso? We often pop up there on a ride out for a sausage roll & coffee pitstop at Greggs  :008:).

Technically your right but Id just like to know that if I kept it, will it be fit for purpose?

They haven't fitted what you asked for so don't accept the job they have done.

I but my bike in to the local garage and requested a new Michelin road 5. What I've ended up with is a Michelin power 5.
Should I just accept it and will it be as good as a road 5? This is my first change of tyre so I would rather not be awkward about it if it's not necessary.
I don't ride too hard. Just a bit of long weekend touring.

General Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical / Bike not starting

Hi, advice please if possible. Bike was running fine up to the new year and then parked up for 8 weeks, now it wont start. Battery has been charged up, bike turns over fine, HISS system and FI light go out as normal when the key is turned. Bike fires occasionally but doesn't start. I've changed the plugs, bike started for half a second and then cut out again. I've tried fresh fuel. Because it started and then cut out I'm thinking it might be a fuel issue? I've disconnected the banjo bolt at the bottom of the tank and tested the pump ( switched on the ignition and caught the fuel coming out). The fuel spurts out as expected for 2 seconds and then stops when the FI light goes off. Is this right or should the pump keep pumping fuel until the system was pressurized? When the bike fails to start its not as if the exhaust cans smell flooded.

There's a counterweight to the exhaust ( erm ... not nearly so heavy) situated at the left footpeg.

I'm sure instructions on how to remove it are on this site but I can't remember how the article was described.

I'll have a hunt and if I can't find it again I'll revisit what I did and let you know - prob be the weekend though.

I fitted a Beowulf end can and am very happy with it.

Hi Knapdog.

And you can lose another couple of pound by removing the ballast plate on the opposite side of the bike !!

Every little helps ...

What's that, Chay?
