  • The dumbest noob questions you've ever asked

    This thread, and many like it, have me thinking of all the stupid ideas I've ever had when it comes to motorbikes.

    So what's yours? I know there are some wise people here who didn't start out so wise!

    (PS: 'Yours' = the ones you thought of, not the one your second cousin's third brother's neighbour's dead wife read on


    2001: "Hey, I've got this FZR600 but it looks old and tired, can I change the suspension to jack it up so it looks more modern?" (Answer: Yes but don't because it will fuck your handling, spend your time servicing the forks etc instead.)

    2003: Hey, this CBR needs more flush-mount indicators. (Result: Horrible holes in fairing, ineffective, ugly, irritating indicators and me going back to the stock units about 6 weeks later.)

    Any others?

    Spending far to much money building a motard...

    Only to strip it down sell everything off and buy an SXV550...

    You live and you learn...

      Not enough room on the server for all my acts of stupidity.

      In the beginning, decided to oil the chain on my SR250 the same way I was told to oil the chain on my push bike. Take it off and soak it in oil. (At lease I didn’t use cooking oil). Then went for a ride, proud of my handy work.

      It took me ages to clean the oil off every thing, and I never got it out of my jeans. Every bike I have had since then has had a shaft.

      Engine oil and new tyres are cheaper than new bikes and time in hospital

        I think you guys are failing at the basic meaning of the word "Question".

          lobes, in my sig

          followed by a "what do you think ?" ^_^ Me: "I think your doing it wrong "
          When I get sad, I stop being sad, and be AWESOME instead. True story.

                Mine when starting out.

                Can I turbo a GSX250?

                Can I put a 400cc Motor in it?

                      Oh crap. In that case, disregard title, insert "Dumbest noob question/noob mod" instead.

                        What kind of oil do you use on your chain? Mechanic- Chain oil.
