Re: Bike expenditure app - Roadtrip

The cars I have tried it in certainly seemed perkier, pulled away better and went up hills better. Unfortunately he truth was you can't have your cake and eat it, you can either enjoy the extra...

Re: Bike expenditure app - Roadtrip

This is what I found on cars with an ECU smart enough to adjust spark timing, modern car ECU will back off ( retard ) timing if knock detector gets triggered, this can happen with lower octane, and...

Re: Rear brake still sticking after servicing.

Front discs get a lot more cooling air than the rear does. All disc brakes drag a bit, there is nothing to pull the pads back except a bit of flex in the seals. With drum brakes there were big...

Re: Handguards for 2016-

The problem maybe that the bit with the splits in is only expanding on the very inner end (especially if the expansion nut has a steep angle on it ) - a bit of rubber or tape gives a bit of...
