How long will my leathers last?

MCN, 20 January 2012 14:28

Q. We all know that manufacturers put a life expectancy on helmets of roughly five years but is there a life expectancy on leathers? I know we should replace any kit if it has been involved in a high impact spill or accident, but what if not? I have had my leathers now for what must be going on 10-12 ...

Marc Abbott, 03 January 2012 13:04

UPDATED REVIEW Vulcanet Bike Wipes, £33.99 (for an 80-wipe bottle) Time used: 10 months What’s good: When I first reported on these wipes, I’d been using them for two months. Initial findings were promising. In the intervening eight months I’ve come to rely upon them, using them to keep my Ducati Monster 1100 Evo in tip-top condition throughout the year, ...

Helmet review: Arai Chaser

Guy Procter, 30 November 2011 15:00

Arai Chaser, £199Miles covered/time: 7000/15 months What’s good: I never thought I’d be able to give my helmet a review beyond its comfort, quality and looks (all of which I liked a lot). Then I hit a car broadside at 70mph when it turned across my path. I flew down the road and tumbled along the tarmac unconscious. I broke ...

Wrong pressures on Honda CBF600 tyres

MCN, 30 November 2011 11:54

Q. I have been using my Honda CBF600 for six months. I had got it into my head that the front tyre pressure was 42psi, which has always seemed fine. The other day I went to check the pressures and the front tyre’s valve came off in my hand! I wheeled it down to the local bike garage for a ...

The problems start if it’s left for 20 minutes or so; the engine turns over fine but it will not start. I can smell fuel ...

MCN, 17 November 2011 10:12

I bought a 2005 Yamaha YBR125 privately few weeks ago, it didn’t tick over very well then but I thought it just needed a good service. It starts OK but after it’s warmed up and ready, if you throttle on and off the revs hang up at 3000rpm for a few seconds then slowly down drop down to a tickover ...
