Re: Suzuki France's SV scrambler

What you see there is a bog standard SV kitted out with some farkles from the SW-Motech catalogue.

Re: Ethanol E15 in US

Its lazy journalism that's wrong.
A designer made a joke and an urban myth was born.
There are five shared components, conrods & their bearings & bolts, piston rings & piston pins.

Re: Ethanol E15 in US

The NC is a simply brilliant design.... in terms of what it was designed for.

To get the most out of it DCT option is best imo.

Re: Ethanol E15 in US

How much of an mpg loss though?

Re: Ethanol E15 in US

Vehicles designed to use petrol with a set percentage of ethanol in it will suffer zero adverse issues from using petrol with that set percentage of ethanol in it.

Re: New Chain and sprockets

If spring link clips are no good, why are they supplied with every chain I've ever bought?
Always used them, never had a problem.
