    Dominator / FMX
    Hi there;couple of things (1) I'm changing the fork oil in my 99 FX650 Vigor. The tech data gives the quantity and level but no recommendation for the grade of oil. The bike is only used on the street, so any suggestions please? (2) Bit of a long shot this, but would anybody have an actual...
  2. Suitable antifreeze for xl700?

    Transalp
    The manual says I need "High quality ethylene glycol antifreeze containingsilicate-free corrosion inhibitors" for my XL700. Can anyone recommend one that fits the bill as I can't seem to tell whether or not they contain silicates. Also, I'm buggered if I can see the max/min marks on the...

    The day fianlly arrived. Yesterday I collected my new bike from Bill Smiths in Bangor, as I got there my old TA was sitting sadly outside, it will not be forgotten. Quite a cold afternoon got quite chilled as Paul, the salesman went through controls etc, so not much of a ride afterwards. Just...
  8. Hand guard suggestions-bark busters?

    Transalp
    Hi guys, has any one got any suggestions for handguards for the 650? I was looking at BarkBusters but they're pricey albeit very good. There's got to be a cheaper enclosed guard, ideally nice and wide to deflect the wind but with a reinforcement not just plastic. Will any other brands fit the...
  9. Photo licence heads up

    Chatter
    It would appear some police forces have been prosecuting people for not having a licence when their photo is out of date, which is wrong it is only the picture that is out of date, your licence runs until you are 70 on most categories, BUT it is an offence not to update the picture every ten...

    That's the Varadero gone, after a car pulling out in front of me and sending me down the road on my head breaking my neck and damaging nerves in my back it time to hang up the leathers. The bike has been scrapped and the wife says enough is enough, even after 4 months I still can't drive the...

  15. Virgin Mobile overcharging

    Chatter
    For anyone who's got Virgin mobile, especially on a monthly tariff. Be aware that they had some kind of 'computer malfunction' on the 11th and 12th June. Which meant they may well have charged you for call, texts, internet usage that should be included in your monthly allowance. When I got...
