Steve Farrell, 13 May 2013 08:52

Tucano Urbano Nano Shoe Covers, £33.99 Tester: Steve Farrell Time/miles: 2000 miles/18 months What’s good? These really do make old boots waterproof again.

Heat Holders Men’s Long Leg socks, £7 Time used: Two months. What’s good: Putting these socks on for the first time was a one of those rare revelatory motorcycle moments.

Yamaha YZF750 gearbox playing up

MCN, 12 October 2011 15:36

Q. I recently bought a 1994 Yamaha YZF750R. It starts ok and rides well, although the EXUP valve rattles a bit.
