  1. Hey Guys, been lurking for a while and made a few posts here and there, but thought i would formally say hi

    Name - Byron
    Nickname - Baz, bigbaz, B, Ron
    Car - Nissan 300ZXTT pumping out 191RWKW

    Finished my learner course earlier this month, still havent done the theory test yet.

    Reason i want a bike is cos i am always working on the car so need another form of transport, may aswel get something i can still have fun in and will save me on petrol.
  2. Welcome Big Baz.

    See you have already checked out the coffee meets, so see you on Wednesday night.

    Always good to meet another rider.
  3. hello and welcome
  4. Hi Baz,
    Always liked 300zxs', i've heard they're a pain in the ass to work on though (cluttered engine bay ?). Nice power too, what mods have u done to it? I used to own a modded Subaru RS Liberty turbo but sold it and bought my bike. I miss it heaps how :LOL: What bike are you looking at getting?
  5. I am looking at getting a GS500F

    Pain in the arse, hmm, if it was just that it wouldnt be a problem, its the other pains, like back, all the cuts, bruises and burns, if you thought getting at stuff on a bike with fairings is hard, then buy one of these and quit compaining about the bike, i do all the work myself and it is currently undergoing a bit of a transormation due to a slight licencing issue, I want my licence, but the RTA thinks otherwise.

    Last dyno car made 191rwkw but that was before FMIC and running 9psi, hoping to turn it up to 15psi and give it a tune and looking for in excess of 250rwkw, but that will take me forever as i am forever modding other parts of the car and never get around to doing it
  6. Holy f#$ Byron thats a properly worked zed!

    You'll have to come for a cruise with me and some car driving mates some time, few of whom are avid zx fans :)
  7. lol, nah just a few mods here and there, still fairly standard in my eyes, needs a lot more work, and quite a bit more power, will have a bit more done soon, would really like to do some engine work and crack over 300kw at the rears, or even 400

    Edit, and would love to come on a cruise once it s back togethor again and i have my licence back, takes a whole lot longer when you do it all yourself, i am currently retrimming bucket seats, which is a pain in the arse, takes about 8 hours per seat to do the job properly, parents are starting to get annoyed at the amount of parts lining all the walls of my room
  8. Haha I understand, my room is full of SV original parts/failed/half complete projects :LOL:
