  1. Who's liable for my tools destroyed in fire at workplace ?

    Chatter
    I've got a tricky question. I was hoping someone here would have some experience or insight. I went for a job at a workshop. The boss was keen to hire me but he said he'd put me on a trial for a few weeks to see how I got on. He told me to bring in my tools and do a couple of days a week in the...

  3. XL600V NoX Emmisions / ULEZ

    Transalp
    Hi All, I have been looking at the requirements for ULEZ bikes, and I cannot work out if my 600 will pass or not? I called Honda and they cannot give me a CoC for the bike (too old).

  8. Output shaft renewal

    Transalp
    Started to change the output shaft on my 700 XL. All the bolts holding the chrome heat shields and the painted heat shields were sized in so that took me around 4 hours to do, I’m a slow worker, drill out re-tap the holes and order new bolts. The rest went as I expected it to no real drama...
