All Technical Issues / Derestricting (copied from the old website)
« on: June 02, 2019, 16:54:58 PM »
The restrictor is fitted within the speedometer, after removal of the speedometer cover you will find a thin circular disc which is driven by a magnetic field produced when the cable drive turns. (the faster the drive rotates the further round the disc moves.) On the disc are 2 high spots, the first causes the red light to come on at 95kph when it passes between a small circuit board. As speed is increased the second high spot comes into a position between what looks like two transistors, that is the speed regulator. All you need to do is to slice this second high spot off the disc as cleanly as possible keeping the uniform circular shape of the disc. The disc is very thin so it can be done with a pair of sharp scissors - taking care not to distort the disc or leave any burrs on the edge - the speedo can then be re-assembled and your 'Hurricane' is up to full power.</p>

The de-restricting info above was sent to me by Jeremy, thanx again buddy.

All Technical Issues / Dynojet-run (copied from the old website)
« on: June 02, 2019, 16:19:48 PM »
Although a bit blurred , this is the result of a dynojet run with my  bike. I had it done at a 'motoport' in lelystad.Since there are no  technical details in the bike shops or on the net on the CBR 750  Hurricane , this was very illuminating to me because I finally learnt  what its max speed was :) ps. The speedometer on my bike doesn't go beyond 180 km so I had no idea  how fast I was going top , that is , untill this run.

Bikers Cafe / Bought a go pro clone
« on: July 04, 2014, 22:57:31 PM »
Several weeks ago I could borrow a gopro clone my colleague had bought and that was actually a pretty cool little thing.
I haven't received mine yet but I will have it prob this weekend.

I lets me film my koi underwater, it can be mounted on helmets and it can be put on the steer with a clamp.
Since the clamps provided are rather big, I have ordered a smaller clamp to put on the bar that's above the steer attached to the windshield, i dunno what it's called ^^

The sound of the cam is horrible but the image quality is actually real good.

Here's a review which shows the quality on a bike :

and here's the review page of the cam :

Bikers Cafe / Bop has a nice suit :)

yesterday my wife was having her birthday and as a present we went looking to buy a new pair of trousers. Since we succeeded in a color that didnt match the old jacket we also bought a new jacket.
I think it 'suits' her :D

Bikers Cafe / 1996 ZX9R dyno run
« on: September 06, 2013, 19:24:27 PM »
Not as much info as I hoped but it was a free run so I mustn't complain :)

added the hurricane 750 dyno result for comparisement, I have no clue if the settings are the same to make it a good comparisement but maybe you do :)

I wanted to have a better look on the meters, and I like the darker tint also. I can't quite tell if the double bubble helps a lot with wind but it did seem that way on the highway today :)

The Xenon gives a whole load of bright white light and due to the special lens that's standard in the bike, it's not blinding to traffic coming ahead  smile1004great
Xenon was fitted couple of weeks ago so it still shows old windscreen ;)

Also ordered new bright SMD lights (1 euro on ebay) for the parking light so you won't see ugly yellowish light above the bright xenon :)

Bikers Cafe / Testrode a CBR 600F from 2000..
« on: August 03, 2013, 12:09:04 PM »
..for my nephew who's busy with his drivers license ;)

Bike looks in mint condition, just 20k km (12k miles) no visible damage, clutch, gas,suspension all good. Original exhaust.
Only thing is the rear break is stuck and they're gonna fix that.

Nice double bubble screen on it. Must say it's quite a difference compared to my current bike (ZX-9R) I'm not used to switching gears when overtaking, but it rides like a charm :)
Here's some pics :

Bikers Cafe / first big ride with a friend
« on: June 11, 2013, 23:02:34 PM »
this sunday did a nice ride with a buddy of mine :)
no highways, just nice roads with loads of good scenery.
Also got to know my bike a little better and now am able to lift the front wheel a bit in first gear without the need to clutch  [sdsdsdtq]
the bike is really awesome, i got power at any rpm in any gear,at least compared to my former rides, but still does't feel like i need to go fast. we did most of the ride at allowed speed.

here's a pic before we went, and one of me along the way with a nice cup of coffee at a gasstation in otterlo  gribbin12

ride was 165km's, took us 3 hours in wonderfull weather
fuel was 1 litre on 18.6 km :D

Bikers Cafe / Bought a new bike again
« on: May 25, 2013, 22:12:47 PM »
Since the Suzuki became another project (it let me standing by the road again week ago) and I really didn't fancy keeping my fingers crossed to see if it would ride or not, me and bop decided to look for another bike.

This is a Kawasaki ZX-9R from 1996 with 53000 km, I testrode it and bought it today, it runs when I start it, no visible damage except from the front fender and minor damage on the buddyseat. Runs smoothly, loads of power, pulls like a madman in every gear even at low speed.

Steering, braking all good, this could be the bike for the next ten or so years just like the hurricane who did its duty for 15 years :)

Oh and the sound of the Yoshimura can  :confused2: :confused2: :confused2: :confused2: :confused2:

This is the one we bought  :
