Product Review: Knox 6 Pack rucksack

Liam Marsden, 03 June 2013 08:23

Knox 6 Pack rucksack, £44.99 Tester: Liam Marsden Time tested: 20,000 miles/three years What’s good? This has stood three years’ daily abuse and is still going strong.

Chain lube review: sDoc100 White Chain Spray

Richard Newland, 02 May 2013 16:54

sDoc100 White Chain Spray 75ml, £4.99Time tested: 20,000 miles/12 months What’s good: Chain sprays either work, or they don’t. Actually, there is a third common option, where they sort of do work, but they also drive you mad. This sDoc100 stuff simply falls into the ‘works’ category. There’s a conspicuous lack of fling, leaving your chain coated in a rust-and-grime-repelling ...

Product Review: Bumpstop ground anchor

Steve Farrell, 23 August 2012 12:19

Bumpstop ground anchor, £49.99 Time used: Three monthsWhat’s good: It can be fitted to a wall just as easily as the ground, making the chain more difficult to attack by elevating it. The 10mm diameter bolts that secure it are impossible to reach with the chain in place. It’s relatively cheap but double-walled and tough looking. The manufacturer says the ...

How can I pep up my BMW R1200GS?

MCN, 30 July 2012 13:54

Q. I have an old 2004 BMW R1200GS. Recently I had a test ride on the latest model, which was a lot peppier to ride and felt much better for it. Having established that I am too weak-willed to go against my missus and spend the savings on a new bike I began wondering if I could stealthily improve my ...

Why is my Kawasaki VN800 Classic not starting?

MCN, 11 January 2012 11:27

I've had a Kawasaki VN800 Classic for over 15 months now, and it had been running beautifully every day until a few months ago when it would just not start on the button, clicking loudly instead. I checked the battery was good (it still is), so then thought it was the starter, so I took it off and checked it ...

Best way to paint Hornet’s wheels

MCN, 11 January 2012 11:11

My wheels are looking a bit tatty on my Hornet and I’m considering spraying them myself. However the wheels take a lot of crap from the road and I am worried it won’t be durable.Cairnsie13, MCN forums Powder coating is more durable than conventional paints, but it’s harder to get a colour match. However, a reputable firm can usually get ...
