Speed Triple 1050 2006 cutting out low revs??

I recently got my Speed Triple serviced and when it came back the tick over kept increasing up to 3000 revs + so I took it back to mechanic who fitted a new idle air control valve. But now it has a very low tick over below 1000 revs and keeps cutting out. mechanic then put new vacuum pipes, temp sensor, synced the throttle bodies, reset the TPS, reset the adaptives, reset idle air control valve, changed map back to original map & sensor. Still no improvement and I cannot use the bike...Help anyone??

Alloy cleaner

Is there a product out there for cleaning the engine cases and drive shaft on my old K100RS...? There wasn't anything when I used boxer twins as a courier in the 70s and 80s...should I just be happy that the cases are now the same colour as my hair....or has some whizz-bang product surfaced during my 20yr absence from bikes.....?

MT07 sold out....now what

So I took a fellow forums members advise and decided to go for a mt07 as my first 'big bike'. I went down to my nearest yamaha dealer today to only find out there's a waiting list until around November. Does anyone have any alternative bikes I should consider or do you think it's best I wait until the end of the year?

Next bike after a Hornet 600

I have had my hornet for 3 and half years and want something different. I want another naked bike but im not sure which. I don't ride ridiculously fast on ride out, I don't exceed 100.

I want ...

Limiting Ducati to A2 standard

Hi Guys, I am currently planning out taking my A2 bike test and of course am looking to buy a bike after. I have my heart set on a Ducati monster and to be honest have little interest in anything else on the market. I was wondering if anyone would be able to tell me whether it would be possible to have it limited so that I could run it on my A2 license. This would mean that as i progress through my tests i could have it de-restricted rather than upgrading bikes. Some advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for ...

600 vs 1000 sportsbike for commute

Hi all!I am looking to buy a new sportsbike and am trying to weigh up the financial benefits of running a 600cc vs 1000cc.I do not own a car and use my bike all year round including my 30+mile daily commute, and at least one night a week a ride out.I am currently running a GSXR 1000 K4 and have nothing but praise for it, about as practical as a superbike can be in my view.Looking around I can't really see much difference in running costs between 600's and 1000's. For example, tax would be the same unless the bike ...

Triumph ST 1050 Problem

My Triumph is reluctant to start, then does not run sweetly for first minute or two, then's fine.  New battery 2 months ago, kept on "smart" charger spins the engine well.  Several good doses of injector cleaner and new plugs have made no difference.  Any suggestions?
