How to fit clip-on bars

Why bother? If your bike has standard fitment one-piece handlebars and you want a tucked-in race-style riding position, then lower clip-on bars, which bolt directly to the fork legs, are the answer to your problem. Alternatively, if your bike already comes with fixed-position clip-ons, you can replace them with clip-ons that have some adjustment to raise, lower or alter the ...

How to lube and protect your bike

Why bother? The importance of this job can’t be overestimated. Over a period of time – not long with the UK’s weather – various components and controls stiffen and then seize. It could be from dry, wet, and winter conditions, or simply from overuse. Anything which can and should be lubricated needs to be. Regularly. Remember: prevention is always better ...

How to fit rearsets

Why bother? Rearsets were originally the preserve of racers who wanted higher-mounted footpegs for greater ground clearance. But they’re also the best way of tailoring your bike to fit you perfectly, by raising, lowering or moving the pegs backward or forward. Most have mounting plates with several positions for the footpegs to bolt on to, so every length of leg ...

How to protect your bike from crash damage

But I’m not going to crash… However experienced and competent a rider you are, chances are that at some point your bike is going to get damaged from: a) falling off the sidestand, b) losing your footing, c) going down at a trackday, or d) a run-in with other traffic. One thing is certain – if you drop an unprotected ...

How to service your brake calipers

Why bother? Because it could save your life. Most routine services don’t include cleaning and servicing the calipers unless the brake pads need changing or there happens to be a problem with them such as a partially sticking piston, or worse, a totally seized one. It pays to look after not only the shiny bits the eye can see, but ...

How to replace your rear shock

 Why would I want to replace my rear shock? Either because your current shock is leaking/worn out through age, or can’t cope with your weight/riding style with the available adjustment. Or simply because you want something more race-oriented – or something more compliant. Are aftermarket shocks that much better? Yes. They are usually designed for racing and come with a ...

How to fit a sports exhaust system

Why bother? By fitting a sports exhaust you can make your bike several kilos lighter, and better looking too. Sports exhausts are also designed to optimise a bike’s power delivery, improving the top-end and smoothing out any midrange unevenness, and tend to be less concerned about meeting the exact same standards for noise or emissions that the manufacturers’ original exhausts ...

How to fit a Scottoiler

Why bother? Because one of the biggest arse-aches of owning a bike with chain drive is keeping it correctly lubricated come rain or shine. Thick aerosol lube doesn’t penetrate the rollers well, and once squeezed off the roller by the sprocket, it doesn’t do much more lubricating. And there are still some spray-type lubes that contain propellant gases or liquids which ...

How to keep your bike looking like new

Why bother? Because you’ve paid good money for your bike and if it starts to look tatty people will tag you as a lazy idiot. A well-kept bike will always catch a buyer’s eye, and gives you ammunition not to drop your asking price when you want to sell it. The simple fact is if you look after your bike ...

How to change your coolant

Why bother? Engine coolant performance deteriorates over time. This can be caused by a build-up of aluminium corrosion or a change in the fluid to coolant ratio when periodically topped up. Most coolants contain special ingredients to help keep the solution alkaline. Over a period of time these lose their effectiveness, so the coolant should be changed at least every ...
