    It's been slow progress on this one. I get totally carried away with cleaning stuff, re-greasing and making it as good as a can.. It's starting to look like a bike now though. Well, kinda !!
  2. Varadero
    I am taking advantage of the Xmas holiday to service the bike. I have read the owners manual which says that I need to do oil and plugs, as well as checking chain, brakes and other obvious bits. Is there anything else I should be checking, lubricating, greasing etc? I use the Vara as a daily...

    Today I took the opportunity to remove and grease the caliper pins on my AT for the first time. Given all the tales of seized pins and pin 'plugs' I was expecting a long, protracted job. Not so. All cleaned, greased and replaced inside 20 minutes. Feeling lucky! :headbang:
