Product review: Motul RBF660 brake fluid

Chris Newbigging, 01 October 2010 17:49

Motul RBF660 brake fluid, around £18Miles covered/time: Six race meetings What’s good? I hammer the brakes on my race bike, as you might expect. The caliper, pads, disc and master cylinder are all kept in top condition, so the fluid that links it all up has to be up to it. I tried this race-spec fluid to see if there’s ...

Product review: Rubber mallet

Chris Newbigging, 16 February 2010 12:13

Rubber mallet, around £5 from cheapo tool outletsMiles covered/time: Four years/lots of seized or awkward things Save money on bike kit in the MCN Shop What’s good? Motorcycles are precision made pieces of engineering – or so manufacturers would have you believe. They’re really big chunks of metal that don’t always co-operate when you’re working on them, which is where ...

Halfords Advanced 8-piece screwdriver set £9.49 (on offer, normal price £19.99)Miles covered/time: One year Save money on bike kit in the MCN Shop What’s good? I’ve learnt a frustrating lesson with cheap screwdrivers – do anything more than prize the lid from paint tins and they invariably knacker bolt heads or break. This set has proved its worth on various ...

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 ...

Boot review: TCX Competizione S

Chris Newbigging, 03 July 2009 12:57

Product name: TCX Competizione S, £179.99Miles covered/time: 3000/one year Compare and buy TCX Competizione S boots 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 ...

Back protector review: Forcefield Pro L2

Chris Newbigging, 22 April 2009 15:18

Best thing about it: Safety – one big crash plus countless smaller moped racing crashes have been dealt with. Comfort is excellent - the rubber/foam mix softens with body heat to fit your back perfectly. Worst thing about it: Nothing – some might grumble at the price, but unlike a lot of back protectors it retains protection after a crash, ...

Chris Newbigging, 22 February 2008 15:58

That’s why Crescent is now offering a new tuning service with five states of tune – from a simple parts swap and basic set-up to ...
