    I have a Hagon shock absorber on my Dommie. I had an advisory on my recent MOT for “rear suspension bush has slight free play Rear Lower" so I'm going to take the opportunity to get it rebuilt by Hagon as it has done over 20,000 miles.

  13. Welding aluminium

    Mechanical Advice
    One of the two bolt holes that the sprocket cover fixes to on my XL600 is broken. Not just a stripped thread, a chunk of the boss the tapped hole resides in is MIA. I should have sorted this while the engine was apart but I didn't. I tried JB Weld and it was useless. I have to pull the engine...

  19. 700 tank/fairings

    Well I've had the new steed 5 days now, so just had to start stripping it down for a closer look. The 650 fairing is a little more involved, but I'd say it's easier, the 700 seems a bit mind boggling the first time :compress: I was a little disappointed to find how the fairing acts as a dirt...
