    I am still not happy with the feel of my Vara so thought that the alignment is worth checking out as I have recently had a new rear tyre, ready for Ardna! I have used the straight edge technique, A long piece of box steel clamped to the front wheel, and then then the straight edge brought to...

    Hi All... I've had the front end bottoming out on several occasions on a couple of trips to Scotland and elsewhere. Due to spirited riding and rough roads there has been a sharp, hard bang through the forks and handle bars. The rear was ok, the shock working ok. I've wanted to get the softness...

    I finally dropped some heavier springs into my WP forks on the RD03. I was fully expecting my problems to be solved. I have the same bounciness between 50 and 60 km/h. At this point, I'm starting to wonder if it is the wheel (which was new with the front end). Any suggestions that I might...
