    Hi, fellow Europeans

    A nice sunny day to all of you!
    Might have introduced myself a while ago already, but my bike, a 2001 ZRX1200S (S standing for "stripped bare by previous owner and now in the process of being transformed in something between a tracker and a café racer") was running just fine between 60 and 80-some-K, so other then normal maintenance and minor repairs the only need I felt was to enjoy the rides!
    Since last week I started to Google again because of the, well known, jumping out of 4th gear problem which occurred​ as suddenly as the sun began to shine in fair Holland...
    So I landed on your board!
    The last 2 days, due to a BIG flue, I sadly couldn't be held responsible for family business so I found myself reading away through lots and lots of topics! Really enjoyable and already a heap of Q's resolved with A's.
    Thanks for that!
    Since the problem occured suddenly and within a week it has been jumping out of gear and grabbing it again without giving hardly any extra throttle I will be posting some questions in the tech part.
    Anyway, I'll try to be a bit shorter on my next post!
    Kind regards
    Miklós

    Hiya Miklos, welkommen.
    Hope you find what you're looking for.....Oh, and errrr, We're not Europeans, we're Brits(most of us, even tho some of us live abroad). I for one want nothing to do with the EU.

    Anyhoos, Rant over. Welkom. Geniet dan maar.
    Birdie num num........

    Much like Mr J, I have nothing against Europeans ...........................I just despise the unelected EU wankers with their crap rules and mountains of red tape

    Thx! I respect that, just couldn't resist to at least show and hereby state that I sincerely hope there will be some sort of a union version 2.0 without the humungeous amounts of I'll spent budgets....And when that happens .... Do come back to help us make it a tat better !

    Ehhh, yeah, having a hard time deciding...

    Nice topic Adrian, great plans!
    Will be reading it!
    My exhaust was wrapped when I got the bike but I didn't like it so I changed the colour.
