How do I clean my radiator?

MCN, 21 September 2012 17:17

Q. Is there a product or a process to clean aluminium radiators and oil coolers? You could eat your dinner off the rest of my bike but these get covered in crap and corrosion. It can't be good for their efficiency and looks naff. Pressure washing is going to flatten the fins and over-aggressive chemicals could be a bad idea ...

Suzuki Hayabusa's hot start issue

MCN, 30 November 2011 11:17

Q. I have a 1999 Hayabusa with a hot start problem. It starts fine when cold and on choke, and also when hot if you start straight away after stopping, such as after fuelling up. The problems start if it’s left for 20 minutes or so; the engine turns over fine but it will not start. I can smell fuel ...

Yamaha YBR 125's revs won't drop

MCN, 17 November 2011 10:12

I bought a 2005 Yamaha YBR125 privately few weeks ago, it didn’t tick over very well then but I thought it just needed a good service. It starts OK but after it’s warmed up and ready, if you throttle on and off the revs hang up at 3000rpm for a few seconds then slowly down drop down to a tickover ...

Is Honda CG125 chain over-tight?

MCN, 09 August 2011 15:28

Q.

I have set the chain tension to 20mm on the centrestand as it ...

MCN, 13 July 2011 10:32

Q. I have a 2002 Triumph TT600 with 20,000 miles on the clock. I'm having intermittent issues with it cutting out. The bike will start fine to begin with, but cuts out mid-ride.

Bandit’s speedo goes blank

MCN, 11 January 2011 13:22

Q. I have a Suzuki Bandit 1250SA which is just coming up for three years old. It has developed an intermittent problem in that the speedo can go blank, though it is still backlit, and the rev counter will jam in red or return to zero and act up. I thought it could be dampness somewhere in electrics and have ...

MCN, 26 November 2010 16:58

Q. One of my chums yesterday told me he was getting a new tank for his old Bonneville. When I asked why, he said because he put Petseal in the tank and now that petrol has a higher percentage of ethanol in it that is dissolving the Petseal so that it’s all gone soft and bubbling up, gumming up the ...

How to diagnose a problem by the noises your bike makes

MCN, 15 November 2010 15:27

Q. I’ve just started out on bikes and have a 10-year-old Suzuki Bandit 600 which is great fun. But having come from cars with all that noise deadening bodywork and in-car entertainment to muffle the sound of the engine, I’m worried that my bike’s engine may have a problem, judging by the amount of mechanical noise it makes. I’m sure ...
