Liam Marsden, 28 May 2010 11:15

Staff bikes: Kawasaki GPz550 - Beware bike sellers who limp

Steve Farrell, 26 May 2010 10:00

When I bought my GPz550 for £300 in January, I triumphantly claimed I’d proved you could get a decent bike for next to nothing.

Staff bikes: Kawasaki GPz550 - Rear disc on front wheel

Steve Farrell, 30 April 2010 15:55

More surprises from my bought-unseen £300 GPz. When I removed the warped front brake discs to replace them, I found that in fact only one was a front disc. The other was a rear.

Staff bikes: Honda Hornet 600 - The neighbours won't be happy...

James Keen, 19 April 2010 15:41

I had the day off today so I decided to get my new Mivv X-Cone fitted to my Hornet 600. It was a pretty simple job to swap out the bulky standard can for the new almost retro-looking cone shaped Mivv. My only real problem (besides lack of proper tools and my own cack-handedness) was with the original silencer clamp, which was so ...

Staff bikes: Kawasaki GPz550 - It's fictional
