  1. Blackbird project

    Hi all bought a 2002 Blackbird that needs a bit of TLC / repair work before a summer tour in 2019. Found front and back brake bolts are rusted up, exhaust downpipes are rusted badly and blowing from the back of the bottom section just before they connect to the cans and some of the fairing...

  3. Rear Brake Mistery, at least for me?

    Suspension / Tires / Wheels / Brakes
    Trying for some sage advice here once again. Mine is a FI 03 US Bird with a little over 7K miles on it that has stock (linked) brakes. I had SS lines replacing the stock rubber lines a year ago. They added fresh rear brake pads as they said it must have been dragging or stuck on? I never noticed...

  5. Left Front Caliper Center Piston issue.

    Suspension / Tires / Wheels / Brakes
    Hey All! , a little help please... I am replacing the front pads on both sides and I can't get the middle piston on the left side to retract at all. All other 5 pistons up front are ready to go (flush) but this left middle one has me stumped. I've tried compressing the piston under pressure...
  6. '97 Bird Parts - Central Ohio, USA

    Parts For Sale
    I found an obscure listing in Craigs. Nice guy, but doesn't have a lot of resources. I'm not sure how easily you get him to ship something, but if you need some of the parts, it may be worth a try. He's parted out most of the bike but he's got an instrument gauge cluster, full forks, triple...
  7. Hello, and a question...

    Hi, got a '97 6 months ago and have started rebuilding the brakes as were pretty shite. Just bolted right hand front caliper onto forks (with correct torque) and both bolts have stripped, but strangely the ally bracket threads are fine. The bolts more than stripped really, they both looked...
  8. Front centre pots sticking.

    Suspension / Tires / Wheels / Brakes
    Hi, I have a 98 Bb which is stuffering from sticky front brakes. The centre pots come out ok but are nearly impossible to push back. I have changed the delay valve but it didn't fix it. The back brake works fine and doesn't stick. The top and bottom pots (front brake) push back easily just the...
  9. Front brakes stuck on

    Suspension / Tires / Wheels / Brakes
    Hi All, I've been having a problem with my 2007 Blackbird for some time, which meant I've basically had it laid up for the past year (as well as something to do with new babies requiring even more maintenance than a bike). However, I spent some time experimenting with it today, and wanted to...

  11. CBR250RR - Front brakes drag, then lock

    General Motorcycle Discussion
    Hi Everyone, I've searched the forums, but no one seems to have my problem. The front brakes seem fine, but after driving for 10-30kms the front brakes start to drag, slowly getting worse until eventually they lock. From when i notice the drag to lock could be no more than 500m, at which point...
