  12. TA 650 screen

    I've trawled the archive looking at the various threads on screens. It seems that just fitting a touring screen isn't the answer to helmet noise and buffet as one set of problems tends to be replaced by another. Is there a consensus on the best set-up? MRA Vario or maybe a TA touring screen...

    My local dealer has fitted a straight through pipe onto his demo TA700, removing the Cat leaving a big gap under the bike, asked me to test run it today for comparison. Got to get one of these once I know what his MPG is like. Throttle response is better especially low down, flat spot at...

    Mechanical Advice
    Yesterday's Gadget Show included a "wild challenge" on hand-held, hiker GPS devices. The Satmap Active 10 (£279.99) comes with Ordnance Survey maps and proved to be the easiest to use. Obviously not designed for use on motorbikes, but could be useful for off-road navigation if you can mount...
