    Just popped a new one on the front of the NX4 trail bike and it is more twitchy than I anticpated from past experience. What are the thoughts on tyre pressures for the TKC80 generally, Up/Down/Standard?? Std pressure is 22psi for a more road type tyre.

    If you were to have an engine that once it was running and the oil was hot the oil pressure was low and fluctuating, what would it indicate a problem with? This is hypothetical question!

    Got this message this morning in response to an ad I have selling my @ My "quick response" was polite: I have nibbled on the bait... I'm waiting now for poor "John Lewis" to figure out what product he was "bidding" on, and offer me a deal that is too good to be true. I'm thinking its a...

    Well went up to the NEC at Birmingham yesterday and had a pretty good time. First time I've been in a fair few years. The KTM's were awesome as were the new BMW's. Honda's Transalp looks a good bike this year to. The one thing I did acquire though was this years Touratech catalogue. Just...

    Are there any generic sorts of pannier racks...........I've decided I need panniers after struggling at the National... I wouldn't use them often.....Would those Givi PL Tubular things be the ones for my bike? I'd like to fit some pannier racks and then look at my leisure on ebay or here for...

    These parts: Are available much cheaper than over the Honda parts counter. I only found this out after paying Honda £££ for the 'genuine' :rolleyes: part. The Honda part is made by the same company as the ones my Dad grabbed out the back of his van and pays pennies for. The generic ones...

    Just recently replaced both tyres, the rear was just a little too square for my liking :p Decided to go for Conti escapes, 130 on the rear instead of 120. All I can say is, I'm amazed! They're fantastic tyres, especially in the wet - far better than the stock Trail-mings. The bike's so nimble...

    I want to buy secure, but detachable luggage for my dommy. When I say secure, I mean something I need to remove with a key, not a quick shuffle. I found this http://www.xrv.org.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=10443 as the only generic option. I want to go camping, and want a top and two side boxes...

  14. Varadero
    Ok Vara 1000 chaps...for those who have, where have you mounted your auxilliary lights? I've bought a set of spots and just spent a considerable amount of time "offering them up" in various locations and nowhere really seems right. I had some slight fantasy idea that the generic bracket they...

    Hi guys (generic term) I have a suspicion this has been discussed here before but can someone please tell me which wire of the three, coming out of the ignition, to cut so I can wire in the live feed of my heated grips to the ignition. phoenix oh yes book the ferry and get over here for our wee...
