Why can't I line up my Bandit 1200's wheels?

MCN, 20 September 2011 10:31

Q. When I line up the wheels of my Bandit 1200, properly using the string method, the index marks uncovered by the spindle blocks are not equal on each side. The right side one is about 1 1/2 divisions further forward than the left. I’ve also found that when tightening the spindle nut up it squeezes the ends of the ...

Is Honda CG125 chain over-tight?

MCN, 09 August 2011 15:28

Q. When I spin the back tyre of my Honda CG125 in neutral I can hear a rumble and sometimes when I change down gears and don’t blip the throttle to match engine speed I get a “clanking” noise like the chain is slipping on the sprocket. I have set the chain tension to 20mm on the centrestand as it ...

RST Paragon 2 textile suit review

Matt Watkins, 08 August 2011 10:05

Product: RST Paragon 2 textile two-piece suit Price paid: Jacket £169.99, Pants £139.99 Score: 3/10 I ride a 75 mile round trip commute daily and opted to buy some waterproof textiles instead of leathers.

Bell M5X Daytona

Ped Baker, 03 August 2011 15:40

Bell M5X Daytona helmet Miles covered/time: 1500/four months What’s good: If you’re over 40 years old the sight of a Bell Helmets logo will almost certainly spark a little interest. In the ’70s and ’80s if you wanted the best lid money could buy you bought a Bell Star. The 2011 M5X has a few of the features that made those ...

Why does my Triumph TT600 cut out?

MCN, 13 July 2011 10:32

Q. I have a 2002 Triumph TT600 with 20,000 miles on the clock. I'm having intermittent issues with it cutting out. The bike will start fine to begin with, but cuts out mid-ride.

Andy Downes, 14 June 2011 13:29

Kriega R30 Rucksack

Andy Downes, 06 June 2011 14:45

Kriega R30 Rucksack, £129 Miles covered/time: 11,000/one year What’s good: This rucksack has become an almost daily companion thanks to the completely waterproof and lined build, carrying capacity, comfort and quality; I love it. Other Kriega rucksacks get unfairly criticised for not being waterproof; something they don’t claim to be. The R30 is 100% waterproof and is big enough to ...

Why is my front tyre wearing unevenly?

MCN, 01 June 2011 16:52

Q. I have a Kawasaki ZX-10R with a Metzeler front motorcycle tyre which has worn around one side only, similar to tracking wear on a car tyre, with the wear starting from the centre of the tyre. Tyre balance perhaps?Neil Reece, email A. If the bike handles predictably and you haven’t had a spill it’s unlikely to be a kinked chassis or ...
