1975 and 1976 TT Race Programmes

1975 and 1976 TT Race Programmes
Good Afternoon and hello. New on here and was directed via the tt on line shop. Hope this is the right place to start with, if not any help appreciated. Hoping to locate a copy of the 1975 and 1976 TT Race Programmes. I have searched the proverbial auction sites with no success at this time. Does anyone have a copy for sale or know of someone who regularly trades in such things? They are for a friend who rode in the Sidecar TT those years as a passenger in a sidecar outfit. Any help or pointers gratefully received. Thank you. Andy

Sealey tools chain splitter pins

Sealey tools chain splitter pins

recently everything i touch has been breaking on me from mixture screws, to cam caps to a bent pin in a sealey chain riveter kit :hammer::00pz::bag:.

Is it possible to buy the pins separate or is it a whole new kit, or could i get away with straightening the pin and hardening it?

Review your bike to win SDoc100 goodies

Review your bike to win SDoc100 goodies

YOU’LL find over 2,800 owner reviews on Visordown, covering over 1,000 bike models – but we’re always looking for more.

That’s why we’re offering prizes to readers who add a review of their bike to our owner reviews section

Well done to last week’s competition winners DanTheTwoWheeler and Ross Allan for writing a thorough review of their bikes and winning Michelin gear signed by Carl Fogarty!

This week, we have a load of SDoc100 cleaning products to give out. There’s chain cleaner, gel wash, visor wipes, waterproofing spray and more to get your bike and riding gear in perfect condition for the summer.

Review your bike before April 16, 2015, for a chance to win. 

Your review doesn’t have to be long, just a frank appraisal of your motorcycle.

On April 17, we’ll pick three of the most useful and informative reviews as winners. 

To add your review, look for your bike model in our owner reviews section or using Visordown’s search bar. Then click the ‘add a review’ b***on (just below the pictures of the bike) and share your experiences. It’s easy.

If you can’t find your bike model, email [email protected] and we’ll add it to the list.

We’ve also got a bunch of other freebies which we’ll send to anyone who reviews a bike that currently has no user reviews. For example, Honda’s new-for-2014 CB650F is one of several machines you’ll find listed on Visordown that does not yet have an owner’s review.

If your bike is one of them, all you need to do is email [email protected] with a link to your review and we’ll send you something in the post, from bike cleaner to books to DVDs. Promise!

Suspension smoothness and noise

Suspension smoothness and noise

Hi, I was looking at a triunph TT600 the other day and, when I checked the suspension, I notoced a little bump at a certain point of the fork travel. It was very soft and didn’t seemed to afect the fork operation but it is worrying me. Can this be the bars are bent? Also the fork was very noisy, like a fluid sound. Don’t know if this is normal.
These things are making me hesitate to go for the bike, I’ve searched for info but didn’t find anything related 🙁 what this can be? would it be an easy/cheap fix?

Team SUZUKI ECSTAR riders Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Viñales are eager to get out on-track for this weekend’s opening round of the 2015 MotoGP™ World Championship at Losail in Qatar.

The event marks Suzuki’s first official full-season return to motorcycling’s premier class after a three-year break, during which time the Japanese factory has worked hard behind-the-scenes to develop the brand-new GSX-RR.

Espargaro and Viñales have already given good feedback on their new machines following positive tests in Valencia in Spain last year, Sepang in Malaysia in February and at Qatar a fortnight ago; and both are comfortable with the GSX-RR chassis and their individual set-ups after working on refining the electronics and the power-deliveries of their machines.

Aleix Espargaro:

“The right word to describe my feelings is that I’m excited! To start the new season with such a great team is incredible for me. There have been three years of hard work, the whole crew is amazing, the machine is performing well and everything is like a dream to me. I can’t wait to be on the grid waiting for the green light.

“During winter tests we had the chance to discover what’s good and what has to be improved on the bike. I feel confident with the chassis and set-up, and while we lack a little traction, this is the main issue we’re focusing on right now. We will spend the early two sessions of practice to finish the job we were going to do in the rained-off Qatar Test and then we will focus on finding a good pace for the race: especially on Friday, when I will try – if not a real race simulation – then at least a 12-15 lap-long-run.

“Fitness-wise I feel pretty good. My knee is getting better and better and my physiotherapy is giving me good results. Our main objective here is not to make any mistakes and to take things step-by-step. We know our potential, but we also know where we need to improve, so the important thing is to do the right things, get well into the points – hopefully within the top-eight – and then look at the season as a whole.”

Maverick Viñales:

“During the previous test in Qatar we have worked very well with the hard-tyre in order to get ready for the race. For sure we still have lots of room for improvement and we will try something new also in free practice tomorrow. Right now the time is short and the race weekend is very different from testing, but I feel enthusiastic in facing my competitors for the first time. In free practice we will mainly work to find a good pace, while we will work on a single fast-lap more in qualifying to gain the best position available.

“We have time to improve, now I have to get experience on the machine to understand the new class and new competitors, plus the MotoGP qualifying procedure is new for me. Therefore for this race my objective is to get into the points and to be as competitive as I can without compromising the development job we still have to do. We are making steps of improvement each time we ride, so I have a good feeling about our potential.

“Right now we can’t aim to win and we have to be realistic and to keep on with the approach plan that we have embarked upon. To me this will be a debut. I’m pretty young, but I have a strong team behind me so right now I’m not scared at all of this new adventure as I feel confident and excited to test my machine’s and my own capabilities in the races.”


Guy Martin to replace Clarkson as Top Gear presenter

Guy Martin to replace Clarkson as Top Gear presenter

GUY Martin is among the names bookies are offering odds on to replace sacked Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson.

After the BBC announced yesterday it would not be renewing Clarkson’s contract following ‘an unprovoked physical attack’ on a producer, several betting firms have placed low odds on the road racer becoming the next Top Gear host.

TT racer Martin is no stranger to the screen having fronted several shows including Speed with Guy Martin, Guy Martin’s Spitfire, The Boat That Guy Built, and others.

Other personalities tipped to join the show include Charley Boorman and Suzi Perry.

Bike lift

Bike lift

Hi All,

Anyone on here have a bike lift similar to the one in the link here?
Any comments on it? Was thinking of building one in a workshop we have at work but would like to get some dimensions if anyone has a stand like it.
