MCN, 09 July 2012 17:06

Q. I'm looking at a 1997 Honda VFR750FV that has had category C damage, apparently cosmetic only. The guy says it's been repaired and is straight. Do you think it's worth me getting seriously involved with this bike or will it cause problems with insurance and MOT? A. There are four classes of write-off: a class A has to be ...

What’s caused 955 Daytona electrics to overheat?

MCN, 09 July 2012 16:51

Q. I have just replaced the stator and regulator/rectifier on my 2005 43,000-mile 955i Triumph Daytona. The problem I now have is that the wiring from the alternator and the 30-amp fuse is getting very hot. I’ve checked the battery readings when switched off for an hour, at tickover and 5000rpm. They are: 11.65 volts, 3.37 volts and 13.45 volts ...

Product review: SBK Generations

Liam Marsden, 09 July 2012 14:11

SBK Generations, £29.99Time played: One month What's good? The career mode is improved from last year. You now start in 2009 and have up until the end of the 2012 season to win the WSB title. So this means you start racing Crutchlow in WSS, before moving through the ranks if you’re good enough. In previous years you started in ...

Jacket review: Germot Oxford wax jacket

Simon Brown, 09 July 2012 13:19

Germot Oxford wax jacket, £239.99Miles covered/time: 2000/three months What’s good: This jacket combines retro charm with a degree of 21st century protection and I really love wearing it – it’s a jacket that genuinely does look good both on the bike and at the pub, too.

MCN, 25 June 2012 15:14

Will WD40 damage tyres?

MCN, 25 June 2012 14:53

Q. My son can be a bit like Frank Spencer sometimes. When cleaning his chain he often gets WD40 all over his rear tyre, too. Despite me warning him not to, he declares: "It's OK, I clean it off afterwards!" Does it damage the rubber compound itself or not?Joe Perkins, London A. WD40 is a water dispersant, not a lubricant, ...

Why is my ZX-6R’s front end juddering under braking?

MCN, 15 June 2012 11:06

Q. When I brake at slow speed on my Kawasaki ZX-6R J2 track bike it feels as if the brakes are only working intermittently and at higher speeds the front shudders a lot. The brake pads are new, the brake fluid is fine with no air and the Galfer discs have done around 4000 miles in the last four years.Luciano, ...

Q. I have just had new Bridgestone tyres fitted to my Gold Wing by my local Honda dealer. The rear tyre has not got any weights and on the front they have put all the weights on one side, 2 x 10 and 3 x 5g making it a mess. Do you think they have been wrongly fitted to need ...
