  3. Fizzle, sizzle and hiss

    is the noise my airhead make since it was washed last week. Water is sitting in the gap between the rocker cover and head (above the centre bolt) and slowly boiling away. Now without taking the cover off again for a look, should there be a way for the water to escape or does it just sit there...

    Friday night I was on my way up to Whitley Bay to my sister's house and was riding along the A19, as the fog got thicker north of Middlesborough I decided to slow down, not as much as I wanted though as other people were still going 70+ with visibility of less than 30m if that. Got to Peterlee...

  12. Conti Escape Tyres

    Africa Twin
    I had a pair of Conti Escapes fitted on Saturday, and went out yesterday to scrub them in - It felt like a completely different bike! Covered 93 miles on a variety of roads from fastish A roads to gravel-strewn tracks, and so far I'm very happy with them particularly as I got them for £99...

  14. Conti Escape Pressure

    Africa Twin
    Just swapped my Metzeler Enduro 3s (After 8,000 miles) for some conti Escape's. I'm struggling to find a pressure that feels right. I used to run at about 25psi rear and 28psi front. But that just doesn't seem right. Any advice? :confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:

  18. Correct rotation for Conti Escape tyres??

    Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    Just about to fit two Conti Escape tyres to TA 2006. On the front tyre the rotational arrow has 'front' printed on it. On the rear tyre the rotational arrow has 'rear' printed on it. My assumption is 'front' is for front wheel use only and 'rear' is for rear wheel use only. BUT, the tread...
  19. Continental Escape Tyres

    I thought I'd mention that I had a set of these fitted today. Absolutely brilliant. I normally hate having new tyres fitted on wet days but the Contis were really confidence inspiring even in this rubbish weather. Highly recommended based on todays findings. My dad has them on his 650 Dakar and...
