  • The dumbest noob questions you've ever asked

    This thread, http://www.perthstreetbikes.com/foru...73/index2.html 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 snopes.com)

    Mine:

    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?

      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".

          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.

                          and I've asked a bunch of really stupid questions to do with bikes...thankfully my dad and boyfriend were nice about it and explained it for me without laughing in my face
