Product review: Draper 34570 torque wrench

Chris Newbigging, 02 February 2010 17:05

Draper 34570 torque wrench, £17.33Time used: 18 months What’s good? Japanese bikes’ cheapo build in places makes it essential to own a torque wrench. Save cash on motorcycle products It’s vital to prevent stripping threads, or parts falling off, and to ensure that every nut and bolt on your bike is tightened to the correct tension. This Draper wrench is ...

Product review: Halfords Professional 10-piece Combination Spanners

Chris Newbigging, 27 January 2010 16:28

Halfords Professional 10-piece Combination SpannersMiles covered/time: One year/countless tasks What’s good? Cheap spanners are a pain in the arse – even if they fit nuts properly to start with they soon wear, causing slips which knacker fasteners and graze knuckles. Save cash on motorcycle products So far these have fitted perfectly everytime, and the chrome vanadium finish is holding up ...

Kit review: SBS Dual Carbon race pads

Chris Newbigging, 09 December 2009 14:55

SBS Dual Carbon race pads £32/caliper Tester: Chris Newbigging Miles covered/time: One race season What’s good? Feel is a problem with my TZR250’s brake set-up – standard calipers are crap, so I’ve fitted an R6 caliper to the stock master cylinder. It’s not an ideal set-up – some pads give good stopping but no feel. These SBS racing pads solve ...

Leathers review: Berik 7932 1-piece

Chris Newbigging, 25 November 2009 18:00

Product: Berik 7932 1-piece £699Miles covered/time: 2000/four races/three trackdays What’s good? When I first got these, I suspected they could be just fashion leathers – not up to the repeated rough and tumble that often accompanies club racing. But after binning my TZR250 three times in them – one of which was a heavy 80mph lowside, slide across tarmac and ...

Product review: Wurth Brake Cleaner/Air Intake Cleaner

Chris Newbigging, 18 September 2009 14:32

Product: Wurth Brake Cleaner/Air Intake Cleaner £4.99/canMiles covered/time: Three races/three months What’s good? They work – when it comes to the carburettors and brake calipers on my TZR250 race bike, I don’t want to mess around with anything that might damage it or impede performance. My calipers have no dust seals to minimise brake drag so it’s imperative that they’re ...

Kit review: Impact Safe-T Armor chest protector

Chris Newbigging, 10 September 2009 17:29

Product: Impact Safe-T Armor chest protector £76 (plus delivery from USA)Miles covered/time: Four race meets/four monthsWhat’s good? Because you don’t tend to hit your chest as hard as other parts of your body, the Safe-T Armor chest protector is thin for comfort – dense foam with a layer of plastic on the front flexes around body and softens with heat. ...

Boot review: TCX Competizione S

Chris Newbigging, 04 September 2009 16:57

TCX Competizione S boots, £179.99 (143.99 on MCN Shop)Miles covered/time: 3000/one year What’s good? The rugged construction is really reassuring, and has shrugged off a few minor crashes. They’ve lasted well too – I’m hard on boots, but the sole and upper have resisted abuse. What’s not? They’re too bulky. For racing on my TZR250 where I regularly use all ...

Product review: Oxford Maximiser 360T

Chris Newbigging, 04 September 2009 16:45

Oxford Maximiser 360T £56.99 on MCN ShopMiles covered/time: 18 months What’s good? The display gives you a picture of how healthy the battery is – a voltage and condition readout tells you if the battery can be saved. Comes with a connection lead to leave on the bike and attach to the charge quickly with a simple connector block – ...

Leathers review: Teknic Xcelerator suit

Chris Newbigging, 03 July 2009 13:01

Product name: Teknic Xcelerator suit, £799.99Miles covered/time: 3000/one year Compare and buy Teknic suits What’s good? The fit is amazing, and the part-kangaroo construction helps contribute to a lightweight feel. It’s heavily ventilated too, so for hard track sessions or racing you’re kept cool and your movement unhindered. I put the protection to the test too – highsiding a Fireblade ...
