    Was hoping someone could help with a braking issue (front) on my 1991 AT RD04. I've rebuilt the calipers and fitted the master cylinder repair kit, bled the brakes and fitted new pads but there's absolutely no build up of pressure at the brake lever. A couple of times I've managed a very slight...

    Ok guys tiny moan with my xl600v seating position. May just be me but when in the saddle I feel that I have to keep shuffling back up the seat. Also the slight forward sliding puts pressure on my old thumbs. I know I'm a wuss. Now my question is are there any after market seats with slight...

    Hi all, I want to bring the clutch lever closer to the grip on my new AT as it's just a tad too far, but there is no 'disc' to turn like the break lever - Anyone know how I do this? Bit reluctant to fiddle with the free play adjuster, dont know if that actually will bring the lever forward a...
