  1. Africa Twin
    I was about to go into Halfords here in Cork but the door was locked. Security and Gardai hunting down robber - ironically, usually them robbing the punters!
  2. Accessories
    I stumbled across these the other night Halfords | Ring Luminator Fog Lights, I click and reserved a couple of sets from my local Halfords and they are well worth it,the bulbs would cost a tenner on there own.:thumbup:

    I managed to break the glue seal on my heated grips and need to reglue the throttle grip. Will super glue do? Is it strong enough these days? i remember when coming within 10 yards of a tube and your fingers were glued together but that was thirty years ago. If not what is the best glue I can...
  4. Transalp
    The wiring all goes back to a relay under the seat, and now all it needs is a rubber boot to fit over the exposed connection, which to be honest I thought should be included with the horn. £29.95 from Halfords including the relay but not the in-line fuse. The sound is AWESOME !!! I can't wait...

    The clutch cover on my 2002 is a showing signs of corrosion under the existing paint, so I'm going to clean it back and prime and paint it in situ. Can anyone advice what shade of paint (probably from Halfords) matches the existing Honda paint?
  8. Chatter
    I have no idea what to expect - although seeing the quite expensive "airhorn-free zone" tickets, I'll be bringing earplugs. I'll also bring oxygen and a telescope as we're in the almost cheapest seats (i.e. quite pricey) I'm quite excited but have no idea what the form is - anyone been or got...

  10. Africa Twin
    I can order a fuel filter off Wemoto for about £8.50inc del, but I could also pop down to Halfords & buy something very similar for £2.99 although have no spec for it. Does it matter??? Cheers
  11. Varadero
    My radiators have a good build up of limescale which i would like to remove thinking of using this Halfords | Holts Radflush 2-Step (2x250ml) or this Halfords | Bars Flush Cooling System Cleaner anyone used these? are they safe to use on a motorbike?!
  12. For Sale / Wanted
    My son has bought a 2000 polo as a winter run around and there are a couple of little jobs that need doing. Before I shell out a bunch of money at Halfords or ebay does anyone have an unused and unneeded Haynes or Clymer manual that they would part with.

    Looking for Shasta White aerosol to tidy up my RD04 and ran across these guys, thought it was worth a mention given how many times this comes up. Car Paint from AutoPaint St Helens (Powered by CubeCart) At £6.99 they seem a lot cheaper than other places I've found for mixing up the required...

    Okay, let's stay away from gas for the second. Often thought about getting a welder, but money and model and lack of knowledge conspire. So, what is the cheapest but good one to buy? Do I want TIG, MIG etc. Now I believe one type isn't good for sheet work, but what I want it for is normal bike...

  20. Bodgers Corner
    Motivated by some serious bodgers on this site, and disgusted by the price of alu panniers, as promised I have decided to have a crack at making some of my own. Started off by purchasing two U.S. 20mm ammo boxes from Luton Army Surplus - about £14 each plus a fiver shipping for the two. Sanded...
