Product review: Wemmi wipes

Wemmi wipes, £1.99 for a tube of eightTime used: One year What’s good: These small tablets (about double the thickness of an extra strong mint) expand to become a half-way house between a tissue and a flannel when dosed with a modest amount of water. They’ve come in handy for wiping visors, taking dead flies off headlights and mirrors, and ...

Best suspension upgrade for a GSX-R750?

Q. My GSX-R750 K2 is now 10 years old (obviously!) and has nearly 35,000 on the clock. Everything I read about 'suspension' says it will need replacing or refreshing after about 16,000 miles, so I can only assume mine is most certainly well past its best and I am riding around the ‘wear and tear' characteristics? I am considering new ...

Product review: Hagon shock service

Hagon shock service, £99.50Miles covered/time: N/a What’s good: Faced with a £300 bill to replace a weary Hagon shock on the extensively neglected 1989 BMW R100GS I bought last year, I was pleased to discover that a Hagon shock service comes in at a third of that cost. The service included a full strip and rebuild, plus new damper rod, ...

Why is my GSX-R750 running wide?

I’ve got a 2004 Suzuki GSX-R750 which I love the look and power of. The problem is that when I open the throttle up in the second part of a corner while the bike is still cranked over, it starts to run wide.Harry Heasman, Tunbridge Wells What’s happening is that the rear of the bike is sitting down as you feed ...

Shock rebuild by Brook Suspension

Shock rebuild by Brook Suspension, £185 Miles covered/time: 1000/three months What's good: It’s saved over £100 compared to getting a replacement shock for my Kawasaki KR1S. If it hadn't needed a new rod as part of the rebuild, a further £75 could have been saved. A new shock would have meant losing the damping adjuster mounted on the sub-frame, which ...

Can I ditch my air-assist forks?

I have a set of Honda CB900FB forks with air-assist. Is it OK to uprate the springs and not use the air assist?Paul Gill, Dagenham Get suspension products in the MCN Shop It certainly is. Air-assist was a 1980s fashion that allowed riders to pressurise the air gap in the forks, ostensibly to stop the forks bottoming out. The trouble ...

Product advice: Help! My bike's steering too quickly

My 2004 Kawasaki ZR-7 has a tendency to flop into corners although I fitted a new rear shock recently. I’ve checked the head bearings for play and set the tyre pressures, with 42psi in the rear it feels a little better. Is there anything else to check?Brian Burke, email  It sounds like the forks are too soft and when you’re ...
