Honda Hornet 600's surprise backfire

Yesterday, when I went to start up my 1998 Honda Hornet 600, I got a massive backfire. It’s never happened before and I’m wondering if it’s anything to worry about (damaging valves, etc)? The bike ran fine afterwards, in fact it felt smoother. But I don’t know if that’s because I have changed the oil or it’s just in my ...

Is Honda CG125 chain over-tight?

Video: MCN rides a Honda NR750

Best tyres for a 2004 Honda Fireblade

Q. I bought my 2004 Fireblade with Pirelli Corsa IIIs and they seem OK but a little ‘slidy’ on the rear at times (in the damp). I’m trying to decide whether to replace the pair with Corsa IIIs or buy something else? I ride hard/fast on the road come wet or dry. I ride about 5000 a year but only ...
