  • Dumbest thing on bikes

    Thought I'd start a thread about the dumb things on bikes from the past. Can be tech related, or just a "what the hell were they thinking"?

    I'll lead off.

    The 532 chain on early Yamaha R6s. I think that was the only bike ever to use it. What a horrible chain size.

    You could follow it up with the 120/60 front tyre.

      Stock exhausts of bandit/gsx1400.
      These bazookas really shout "throw me away for aftermarket"...

        Electric starter on Norton Interstate. Made a good boat anchor.
        Everything I know about SV's Zoran told me, often three or four times.

              Ignition switch...the bike should be running right now with all of us on them. Instead we look into these dumb boxes with keyboards.

                Just thought of this one earlier today.

                VTEC. Let's make a valve adjust usually about 2 hours become 8. Thanks Honda.

                            He got banned on SVRider a while ago. Didn't you find out that his caliper adapters put them in the wrong place? And wasn't there some issue with the rear wheel kit as well?

                              I'm not sure being banned from SVRider is a negative. I haven't been back since it became clear that one wasn't allowed to question site supporters, even when what they were saying was utter bollocks.

                              The dude with the dodgy wheel kits was, relatively speaking, just naive and over-enthusiastic (and a trifle arrogant, true).
