Bike part review: Moto Master Flame disc

Chris Newbigging, 06 October 2010 14:43

Moto Master Flame disc, £200 (approx) Miles covered/time: Five months/eight race meetings What’s good? Stopping power, put simply. This saw blade-like rotor is the recommended brand to suit the SBS carbon racing pads in my TZR250 (a similar set-up is used by some World Supersport teams), and between the two parts I can stick my race bike on its nose ...

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 ...

Tool review: Clarke Professional Wire Lock Pliers

Chris Newbigging, 16 March 2010 14:31

Clarke Professional Wire Lock Pliers £18.79Miles covered/time: One year/many metres of wire What’s good? Racing rules dictate that oil drain plugs and filler caps need to be lock-wired for safety, and the neatest/most secure way to do it is to use pliers like these. Feed the wire through a hole in the part and whatever solid part you lock it ...

Product review: Venhill 500A quick-action throttle

Chris Newbigging, 10 March 2010 17:00

Venhill 500A quick-action throttle, £39.20Miles covered/time: One year/one race season What’s good: Standard TZR250 throttles seem to turn 360° before you get full throttle – this Venhill item can be switched between 1/4 turn and 1/8th turn (if you have a death wish). Save cash on motorcycle products I’ve left it on 1/4 turn, and it’s given quick, smooth throttle ...

Tool review: Halfords Professional 10-piece Combination Spanners

Chris Newbigging, 05 March 2010 16:52

Cost: £29.99 Miles 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. So far these have fitted perfectly every time, and the chrome vanadium finish is holding up despite getting wet and damp on ...

Halfords 60-piece Professional socket set £39.99 (seven years ago; nearest equivalent is 90-piece set at £89.99)Miles covered/time: 11 bikes worth of repair/maintenance/seven years What’s good? For £40 this socket set was a stupendous bargain – 1/4”, 3/8” ratchets, metric, imperial, deep reach and spark plug sockets plus screwdriver/allen bits and extension bars have covered most workshop and pitlane tasks. Save ...

Tool review: Cruz Tools sliding T-bar socket set

Chris Newbigging, 25 February 2010 16:50

Cruz Tools sliding T-bar socket set, £17.70Miles covered/time: One year What’s good? Before I used a T-bar, I didn’t see the point – I already have a socket set. But they’re so convenient for removing and fitting things quickly, especially the bodywork, brake caliper bolts and gearbox drain bolts on my race bike. Save cash on motorcycle products They fit ...

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 ...

Chris Newbigging, 16 February 2010 12:10

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 ...

Chris Newbigging, 10 February 2010 14:15

Product: Halfords Professional cantilever tool box £22.99Miles covered/time: One year/five race meets – 100s of garage hours What’s good? Racing means most of my tools need to be portable, and also easy to find. Save £££s on motorcycle products Drawer units are nice, but for convenience they can’t beat my cantilever box. Open it up and everything is on display ...
