    I just got back from a 50 mile brap, mainly fast country roads with a little town work towards the end. An hour later i put my hand on the clutch cover and it feels really hot, an hour later. Now by hot i mean putting my hand on the cover and leaving it on, it was uncomfortable to say the least...

    Ok I'm running 16/49 sprockets and find that it's perfect for town and trail riding but seems too buzzy for motorway/fast road riding. What do you guys run ? Thinking of running a 47 on the rear, Any thoughts ? Cheers Bob

    A lovely track from our campsite to the Spanish Coastal town of Peniscola, yes and it is pronounced peeniscola. 20 kilometres in the mid 20's. Perfect. Oh and that's the wife, not me. Yes I know it's a Honda but the bike you cannot see is an XT 350

    Hi all, I'm after some urgent advice. I am finding it very hard to find moly grease here in the south of France to use with my engine rebuild. Lithium general purpose is in great supply though - can I use lithium, or does it have to be Moly? Appreciate and quick responses, as I am in town now...

    Hi all, I've encountered a strange problem lately. I notice that when I'm cruising around town and I pull to around 100 km/h, release the throttle, my speedo needle won't react or very little at all. Then, when I pull the clutchlever, rev the engine up, the needle falls to around the speed I'm...

    There is an ex Danish Army R65GS, 1992 4-sale here, close to my town. But with only 27 hp. I wonder if it will feel slow and sluggish? I might buy it and fit a 800-1000 engine in the frame. We'll se if it's possible to haggle the price down a bit. Wish me luck!
