    Product Reviews
    Well I had the intiminators and slugs fitted and gave it a short run to the Yonderman with Dave, my lad in tow on the DR350 and then a proper run on the way down to the Welsh Invasion Initial impressions Slugs I have these set to raise the front up 40mm. This is as much as the cables and...
  3. Cornering angle advice on front TKC80 ( how low dare you go safetly on tarmac )

    Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    OK I know it depends on wet /dry temperature etc but just fitted my first TKC80 on the front of the dominator ( 21" 90/90 ) and after 6000 miles on the old heidenau K60 the feeling is a bit wierd . I know it's been said before that they feel a bit like you have a steering damper on at first and...
  4. Thanks Heidenau

    Africa Twin
    Just ready to replace my worn K60s. They've done just over 13,000 miles. The front is more worn than yours in the pic Tramp. I have similar tread left in the middle but less on the edges.

  8. d*** f*** b******* and b***** it

    within 72 hours of fitting a new Tourance on the back, dug a 1.25" wood screw out of it :cry: Thing is, didn't go flat, as the screw went into a tread block at a shallow angle. Though it's about 30mm long I reckon it would have got 15mm penetration maximum, and with a 9mm tread block that's...
  9. Top Tips

    Here's some tips from one of the blokes at work that I know. He should write a book as he keeps coming out with them and they're soooo funny. 1. When in the safety of your own home, top your helmet up with fairy liquid, attach a straw to a can of Stella or Blackthorn and jump up and down a bit...
