MCN, 26 October 2010 17:16

Q. I got on my Suzuki RF600R today to go home from work, and the first thing it did when I tried to start it was backfire and shoot flames. I thought what the hell, maybe these things happen. When I then went to actually go home I noticed the bike didn't want to rev past 4000rpm (without a lot ...

MCN, 26 July 2010 14:06

Simon Relph, 08 December 2009 15:31
