How do I clean my radiator?

MCN, 21 September 2012 17:17

Q. Is there a product or a process to clean aluminium radiators and oil coolers? You could eat your dinner off the rest of my bike but these get covered in crap and corrosion. It can't be good for their efficiency and looks naff. Pressure washing is going to flatten the fins and over-aggressive chemicals could be a bad idea ...

Q. We all know that manufacturers put a life expectancy on helmets of roughly five years but is there a life expectancy on leathers?

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 ...

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.

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.
