  1. Brake caliper piston question

    My "front-end" saga continues with the discovery of seized brake caliper pistons and brittle caliper piston seals (that have been in there since 2001) Having never done this before.....Is this piston good for re-use? It seems to slide in and out of the bore ok, but looks a bit pitted/scored?
  2. Old man on a bike

    Right. Let's get something clear from the off. I don't subscribe or get sent the Saga newsletter. Someone sent this to me. Bloody good read and I've ordered one of his earlier books so looking froward to that.

    Other Bikes

I've removed it twice but it returns to haunt me! Well, the saga continues. I've decided to replace the sender unit. It's the only way to...
  7. My RD04 saga continues..........

    Africa Twin
    Still working on the faring, but there is now light at the end of the tunnel :) I'm a fussy bugger and decided that the top section of the original fairing looked too short (not dakar enough), so i chopped about 1cm off the top where it curved outwards and have extended it by about 2" with...
