    Product Reviews
    I thought I'd share my experience of this product. We were in southern Chile back in December last year when I noticed some liquid had collected on the left side of the engine - it appeared to be coming from the rear of the front cylinder's head gasket and was running down the block and onto...
  9. Couldn't resist.....Laser Pro duro

    Transalp
    I promised myself I'd not go for an aftermarket pipe........but I spotted a Pro duro on Ebay recently, that was in good nick, local and the Gent selling it seemed genuine, so I bought it. I think it's actually for a Tenere, but I factored making up a new link pipe in with my offer. As far as I...

    I have a knack of acquiring spares. They end up left on the floor after I put things back together. :/ Anyway, last night I finally got round to changing the sprockets and chain on my 1981 XL185. Everything came off and went back on as I expected but when I was tidying up tools afterwards I...
  14. CRF1000L - Fitting OEM Centre Stand

    How to.....
    Given a centre stand is not standard fitment on the CRF1000L I thought I’d post my experience in fitting an OEM Honda stand (part number: 08M70-MJP-G50). There are several manufacturers selling stands so some tips may apply to these. There are no instructions supplied with the Honda stand. The...
  15. What do you all think?

    Transalp
    So I have a 2009 XL700V, which I love but which has been used and abused as a commuter all year round since new ( 8 years now ). It's getting to the stage where I'm beginning to think about doing something with the front forks - not so much a re-spring / re-valve, but more that the external...
