    Bodgers Corner
    My AT's on it's third headlight fairing (or 'nose cowling' as the parts book calls it). The first two developed bad cracks around the holes into which the side fairing panels connect.

  4. Davida helmet and goggles

    Helmets
    I like wearing an open face helmet on my old Transalp. I have a couple of Davida jet helmets which I find very comfortable and quiet but I can't seem to find comfortable goggles to wear with a Davida. The problem is the brow of the helmet comes quite low down my forehead and pushes the gogles...
  5. What are your favorite motorbike songs?

    Chatter
    Ask people on the street to name their favourite ‘motorbike song’, and chances are they lean more to Highway to Hell than Little Honda - beards, leather jackets and Hells Angels-types, not the chirpy 60s tunes some of us grew up with. Here at Bikesure, we want to change public opinion of biker...
  6. pilot jet

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi. When I stripped my carb last time I found the pilot jet really scaled up , I cleaned out the jet but since doing this the bike has a really annoying habit of cutting out without warning , not often but once is too often when commuting to London. I thought I would change the jet first to see...
  7. Bash Plate and front fender attraction

    Africa Twin
    So I'm becoming quite disappointed with my attempts to fix the AT front fender and bash plate connection. I don't feel like I am a very aggressive rider. When I ride with others I am always at the end of the pack. However, I am constantly getting the front fender jammed up under the bash plate...
  8. Airbag Vest

    Clothing
    Been watching the development of this kit over the years and formed a viw that they may be worth while. At the NEC show there were some on display so I was able to try one for size. Good un obtrusive fit when un inflated, lots of thoughtfull detail in the design. The one that stood out above the...
  9. SENA

    Bike Comms & Audio
    Just got my SENA 20S, already had the SENA SMH10. A quick review. The price, simplicity, battery life and quality of the SMH10 is excellent. The 20S is an advancement which includes more features and bluetooth 4. The 20 S is almost double the price, but the noise is all gone, it is very clear...

    Several types starting from around a tenner on fleabay, double mounted too! Also some single pony mountes starting around 18 quid. Anyone fitted a pair on their bike? I know they are often lacking in the weather protection side, but I can soon sort that as I used to do on my trailies 2 years...

  15. Wilbers Monoshock.

    Dominator / FMX
    I am thinking of buying a Wilbers monoshock for my flattracker project . Have any of you chaps used one on a dommie and are they worth the expense? They have two types for the RD02. The eco-line 540 and the 640 which is about £60 more expensive. Is it worth paying the extra just to have the...

None of them have been particularly impressive. Can anyone (maybe some of you supermoto guys) recommend a pad that will be quite effective...
