  9. A quiet life behind bars

    Transalp
    I’ve just fitted new handlebars to my 650v6 (Renthal 717) , the object of the exercise being to get more front end feel. The new bars are lower and have less sweep resulting in moving relative positions forward about 40mm and down 25mm. Tipping my weight forward suits my particular riding style...

  16. Chain obsession...

    Africa Twin
    The more I think about this, the more I realise the whole problem is not the chain tension as such, but rather the distance the rear wheel can move through its arc. on sports bikes, with hard suspension, any difference in length created by the swing arm not centering on the front sprocket is...
