    My nx650 RD02 (1989) is in need of a new shock. The current shock is an old Hagon that is at least 20 years old fitted by the previous owner and I doubt very much it is serviceable by the look of it. Im on a tight budget (meaning I don’t want to spend a fortune) but need to replace it...

    Have a newly acquired 2008 700. Does anyone know the factory settings for damping and preload on a std shock? Its fine over big bumps (like speed humps) but a small, frequent sequence (like when the tarmac gets ripples in it - or rumble strips) feels like there's no suspension at all. I'm...

    Hello, I'm fitting Wirth progressive fork springs to a 2006 Transalp and wanted to know if I should discard the washers which are acting as spacers when I fit the new springs. I believe the Transalp didn't have spacers installed from stock? The bike is second hand and this is the first time I've...

    As I'm wading through the previous owners 'enhancements' (or bodges as I like to call them!), I now realise the rack was fitted through added holes in the rear mudguard. Tucked away under the rear carrier I didn't notice the extra 'ventilation' until removed for cleaning. Does anyone know if...

    Hello again Thanks for the help on the previous post. I am looking to fit some hand guards & a taller screen on my 650v. Is their any recomendations, or any to avoid. The hand guards are more to keep the wind off, not smash into trees. Or do I just buy a new AT? thanks trevor
