    These days if you want to change the engine number on your V5, DVLA require proof of purchase of the engine, or an engineers report from the garage that did the job (what a load of ballsocks). As the owner of several (ahem) spare engines I phoned them to ask what you're supposed to do if you...

  14. Foot Pegs

    Any recommendations for off road type foot pegs? Many that I have seen are wider than the oem, and I fear these will interfere with my big foot and the shifter. When I added off road style pegs to my KLR650, I had to install an extended shifter to make shifting as comfortable as before.

    Oh no not again. This is my new AT battery. It's a 4 cell pack of 15Ah capacity. It weighs less than 2kg and if I'm honest it scares me a little since those cells will discharge happily at 150A. It cost less than 100GBP. Whilst bits are painted plated or otherwise fettled I'm getting on with...
