2005 & 2006 Suzuki GSX-R 1000 owners please take note.......

Suzuki (USA) has initiated a voluntary safety recall on 2005 & 2006 GSX - R1000 motorcycles after receiving reports of cracking or breakage of the motorcycle frame in certain extreme situations where unusually high stress is placed on the frame, such as collisions involving the front wheel/fork assembly.
Owners of K5 & K6 GSX-R1000s, should contact their local UK Suzuki dealer and schedule an appointment to have their frame inspected.
If the frame is not cracked, an aluminum reinforcement brace weighing less than two pounds will be fitted with bolts and epoxy adhesive below the frame spar and below and behind the steering head. The service takes three hours to do.
If you know any owners of these machine's please advise them of this....

For further info contact Grayson at North East Motorcycles, Durham on 0191 386 9212 or email on motorbike2@btconnect.com

Croft reduces track days for 2009 after court ruling

Croft racing circuit has axed 80% of its motorcycle track days after a devastating High Court ruling over noise.

The circuit has pulled the plug on 19 of 23 bike track days set for 2009 following an order to cut noisy events from 140 a year to just 40.

Circuit Manager Tracey Morley told said : “There has been an adjustment to our calendar and sadly events have had to be cancelled.”

She said race meetings had also been cancelled and that more details would be released next week.

The axed dates had been organised by track day firms No Limits and Hottrax. Both said customers had been offered alternative dates.

Hottrax’s said: “We had 11 dates at Croft and we’re now down to two. It’s our favourite circuit to work at so not good news for us.”

Croft lost an appeal in January against an order to pay three local residents up to £150,000 compensation over noise.

Richard Jones QC, representing Croft Promosport Ltd, told the Appeal Court the ruling exposed the company to an "uncertain number" of claims from other neighbours and had serious implications for its future.

Now learners can split new test

Learners will be able to take the two parts of a new motorcycle test on different days following an announcement by roads minister Jim Fitzpatrick.

From April 27 new riders must pass a ‘manoeuvres’ examination at new test centres as well as an on-road riding section. Fitzpatrick’s announcement means they won’t have to cram both into a single appointment.

The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) had faced criticism for building too few of the new ‘multipurpose’ test centres and accused of asking learners to ride hundreds of miles to the nearest one.

Yesterday’s announcement also means candidates can do the on-road part at an existing test centre without having to travel to a new one.

Fitzpatrick said the move would “provide more delivery options, from a greater number of locations, enabling better utilisation of the current test centre estate and thereby offering improved geographic coverage”.

“It will offer an improved level of customer service for motorcycling candidates and reduce the travel-to-test distance for some candidates,” he said.

Rider groups welcomed the news but pointed out the manoeuvres part would still have to be done at one of the limited number of new test centres.

Chris Hodder, of the British Motorcyclists Federation, said: “There’s still going to be large parts of the country where people will have to travel a long way.”

Hodder also attacked DSA plans to charge £10.50 more for the new test, after already putting the price up by £20 in September to cover the extra cost.

The charge went from £60 to £80 at the end of September, when the new test was originally supposed to come in. The introduction of the test itself was deferred by six months due to a lack of test centres but the DSA did not do the same with the new fee intended to pay for it.

Now bookings for the new test taken from March 30 will cost £90.50.

Hodder said: “It’s a 50% increase within a year.”

HM Plant Honda riders swap two wheels,for two wings....


HM Plant Honda riders John McGuinness, Steve Plater and Glen Richards, swapped two wheels for two wings to get airborne with some of the UK’s flying aces and experience life as a fighter pilot, with RAF Linton on Ouse’s squad flying Tucano training aircrafts.

Speed and machine performance, as well as strong physical and mental aptitudes are vital for both pilots and motorcycle racers, but the fastest man around the legendary Isle of Man TT mountain circuit, John McGuinness, experienced a whole new sensation of speed and physical pressures during the flight – highlighted by his lunch re-visiting him in the cockpit!

McGuinness said: “The whole day was an amazing experience, not just the flying but also being with the pilots and all the people around RAF Linton who took such an interest in us and the bikes.

"It’s a bit humbling really when you look at what they do. We took off from the base in York and it was just minutes before we were flying over my house in Morecambe - it took me almost three hours to drive from home that morning!

“I’m used to riding at speed and having total concentration on a bike, but this gives you a completely different view and certainly a new appreciation for a pilot’s skill.

"It was really interesting to learn about the technical side of the aircraft, and actually flying the plane myself was the icing on the cake. I even had a go in the sick bag!”

TT and North West 200 road racing team-mate, Steve Plater, is no stranger to life in the sky as he is currently in training for his private light aircraft licence and has previously flown in an RAF jet plane.

However, this proved no preparation for being strapped in to the Tucano aircraft, as Steve accidently set off a national RAF alert signal by activating the personal locator beacon in his life jacket - which usually signifies a downed aircrew!

Plater said: “The whole day was awesome. We experience physical and mental demands on our bodies as well as fast speeds, but the speed is in a relatively confined space on a circuit so it feels so different in the sky where you have no reference points as such.

"The forces on my body were unbelievable during the aerobatic manoeuvres we did and the whole experience is something you just can’t describe adequately.

"I’m learning to fly a plane at the moment so being able to bring the Tucano in to land myself was awesome.”

This was the first experience of its kind for Glen Richards, who took things in his usual laid back stride, although flickers of nerves couldn’t be hidden during the day.

Glen said: “I feel very privileged to be able to come and spend some time with the RAF boys at Linton and go up in the plane.

"I didn’t really know what to expect so I wasn’t nervous as such and although I enjoyed every minute of it. I was also pleased when we landed!

“I’ve never done anything like this before and it’s an experience that I’m not going to forget.

"The low level flying and views over the Pennines was amazing, and the weightlessness I felt during the aerobatics at the end of the flight was freaky, but the highlight of my day.”

Flight Lieutenants Rich Keeling, Jim Whitworth and Chris McCann, the three Tucano RAF training pilots took off from RAF Linton on Ouse in a victory formation, and flew at low level - 250 feet above ground - at approximately 300mph over the Pennines to Morecambe Bay, before turning towards and flying through the Lake District.

On the return journey the formation split in to three individual aircraft and climbed to 5,000 feet in approximately 90 seconds, to practice some aerobatics to include a loop the loop, barrel roll and stall turn.

Flt Lt and basic fast jet pilot instructor, Rich Keeling, said: “A number of the RAF personnel on the Linton on Ouse base are interested in bikes and follow the British Superbike series.

"So when I found myself at Croft last year in Honda’s hospitality unit it seemed a great idea for the riders and pilots to share the experience of what each other does.”
