    Hi guys I took my SLR650 off the road last month just to give it a clean up. Well the inevitable happened and whilst removing the exhaust I snapped one of the studs.

    Just bought fog lights and controller for my 08 XL700. Has anyone fitted these themselves? Is it a complicated job best left to a professional, or should I have a go at it?

    This is a replacement wrench following my purchase of a http://www.xrv.org.uk/forums/product-reviews/29313-clarke-3-8-drive-reversible-torque-wrench.html which turned out to be an extremely poor piece of kit so I wasn't going to take any chances so went for the quality end of the spectrum this...

    Probably an old chestnut, but is it possible? :? Am about to change out my "racing slicks" (Sahara's) to Tourances next week. Where I live there's no wheel balancing available for bike tyres.
