    So, I've got a Xrv750 - 96 and want to lift it and at the same time make it more offroad capable.. I've been reading a shit load about fork changes but in no thread anywhere does it mention how much lift the actual fork change made? I've read about Honda, yamaha and ktm Forks, all of them...

    Cal Crutchlow has now become Britain’s first premier class (MotoGP) race winner since late legend Barry Sheene in 1981. After the race on Sunday evening, or on Monday morning … no mention at all of this sporting achievement on British Radio 4. Media Luvvies out of touch ?

  12. The new AT ?

    Africa Twin
    I went to the NEC show today, and had a look at the design exercise that's been talked of as the new AT. I had to peer through the ersatz "mud", but I suspect Honda will need to do a lot of relocation of sensors, or provide a much larger "sumpguard" before the bike could be used off-road in...

  19. Front brake light staying on

    Africa Twin
    Have been meaning to mention this for ages. As said the front brake light is staying on. There seems to be a bit of slop in the lever, push the lever forwards and the light goes off. I am guessing it is something simple, maybe the spring has got tired, anybody got any ideas. Pop the lever off...
