    http://store.ricorshocks.com/ I received the shock inserts, securely packaged in a block of foam and with easy to understand fitting instructions.

    Hi all, I was fitting new plugs last week to my 97 RD07 and got a little spanner happy and decided the easiest way to do this would be to remove the tank and also remove the airfilter housing. Removed both, fitted the new plugs and then refitted the connection from the airfilter to the...

    After a painful ride up to the BMF this year I decided action to improve the comfort of my Corbin seat was definitely required. Much of the problem seems to have been caused by the slope of the seat - I was using a nice plush sheep skin at the time, so it was certainly soft enough. Anyway, I...

    I have just been for a spin on Project Zebra. OK she has no tax or MOT but you have to test these things right? Having not had her going since my last report some months back she took a while I ran a brand new battery flat twice, turning her over again and again, before, on the third charge...
