I just got through installing my new Corse Exhaust and ECU and when I run thebike, I get a warning light that has no description in the manual. There are three lights just to the right of the Tach. The top of these three lights remains lit and I don't remember this happening before the exhaust install. Anybody know what that is??

Yeah I got my brother when he just passed his test and had a Z750, I flicked the kill switch and sat with a grin on my face watching him panicking about why his bike wouldn't start lol.

The other one I did was to put his bike in gear after he parked it in the garage. When he tried to wheel it out he thought the engine had seized lol.

I know I'm a cruel bugger

When I was younger, about a year or two ago....=P My dad, a family friend, his wife, their hot daughters and I went on a ride. We went to a little town called Maleny here in QLD In Australia. I remember parking the bike up and going and getting lunch with them all. We came back, and I turned the key on, hit the go button, and the thing would only click and do nothing, I started to panic, thinking the battery was dead.

Now keeping in mind that Maleny on a sunday morning has at least 1000 motorcyclists there, and I was on a Red Moto Guzzi Sport 1100, I wasnt exactly blending in, it was the only one of those sorts of bikes for miles. So I got him and our family friend to give me a hand to push it to the road, and rode down the hill trying to bump start it. Obviously everyone was watching and when I got to the bottom of the hill, and had stopped, I had only just worked it out......Killswitch was on.....

Happens to the best of us, to this day the two hot daughters dont talk to me....:naughty:

:banghead: I bet you were a talking point for weeks , I've been through maleny on a bike when it's busy & theres bloody bikes everywhere!
Favourite trick when we used to race dirt bikes was reach over to the bike next to you & turn his fuel tap off!!!:wtf:
Consequently i used to turn mine around so the tap faced inwards so it couldn't be tapered with!!
But they got me back one day, had a le'mans type start (run to the bike, kick start & go)
Usually you leave the bike in neutral, kick starter facing out so you just jump on & go .
Some one had flicked the kick start back in & put the bike in gear ...Bastards:rant:

Another one of my favourites is to hit your mates kill switch just as the traffic light changes to green then take off laughing :f4:
