Honda Hornet 600's surprise backfire

MCN, 08 September 2011 16:22

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 ...

Oakley V46 Signature Holbrook sunglasses

Michael Neeves, 08 September 2011 09:47

Oakley V46 Signature Holbrook sunglasses, £105 Time used: Two months What’s good: Worn by the good Doctor Rossi, these shades won’t make you ride like him, give you access to his immense wealth, or look like him – although maybe that’s a good thing. They have a polished black frame, ‘warm grey’ lenses, yellow ‘O’ and VR46 logos and come ...

Airforce Blaster Sidekick motorcycle dryer

Marc Abbott, 08 September 2011 09:21

Airforce Blaster Sidekick motorcycle dryer, £99 Time used: Nine months What’s good: The handheld super-blower actually does blast away every bead of water from your bike, using a 1.3bhp motor to deal with my Monster 1100 Evo very quickly indeed.

Yamaha YBR125 clutch problem

MCN, 30 August 2011 16:46

Q. Just recently my YBR125 has started mucking around when it comes to shifting up from first to second. It will eventually go into gear, but only after several de-clutchings and an embarrassing 30 seconds on the road. All the other changes are OK, up and down the range. It feels like I haven’t pulled the clutch in, yet occasionally ...
