  1. For Sale / Wanted
    I had an uprated Ohlins spring with adaptors fitted by Kais in Atherton before our Greece trip back in '08 (blimey!). Stock spring rate is 13.2kg/mm as I recall, the Ohlins 15kg/mm and it does carry the weight better without being hard/harsh solo. £70 posted. I can fit to a decent spare...

  3. Transalp
    So some people have mentioned that their TA700 seems very softly sprung, and I'm much in the same boat myself. I don't really have any issues with solo riding as I'm a bit of a featherweight myself, but with 'her-indoors' on the back there seems a lot of sag, even with the compression as hard...

My intention this new year is to join ride off road and start doing a few events kids permitting.... I would like to stiffen up my full suspension as im finding it...
  7. XR
    Is there much chance anyone would agree to swap a xr650r for my xr400r, or is the value too different between the two? Its good condition, low mileage (8000km) everything working with a battery added, trailtech x2 headlight, uprated 200w stator and good tyres. My licence is upgrading to a full...
  8. Dominator / FMX
    I am just in the process of overhauling my forks for the tracker build. The forks have uprated springs in but they have always seemed very soft . Is it worth using different fork oil???? I know the manual lists ATF but it seems so thin :o
  9. XR
    I was doing the valve clearances on my XR650R yesterday and when I took the ignition cover off I noticed that all the poles on the stator were wrapped in wire. The stuff I have read online suggests that only their should be 2 spark coils and 4 generator coils. Im hoping mine is already uprated...
