Drop-down visors: are they any good?

What are your thoughts on internal drop-down sun visors? Are they worth having? Debthehog, MCN forums The only downsides to them are that a few can become loose and rattle inside your helmet or drop down of their own accord (and if we’re honest here, we don’t think they look as cool as a tinted visor).

Why is my almost-new Kawasaki Z1000SX rattling?

Q. I have a new Kawasaki Z1000SX with 900 miles on the clock, which has a faint rattle. It comes in when I am gently opening the throttle at low revs in the low gears. It’s similar to pinking or a tappet rattle. I am not labouring the bike at all, but it goes as the bike revs higher. I ...

Can I use silicone sealant instead of a gasket?

Q. I have bought a second hand slip-on exhaust for my 2009 Suzuki GSXR750. The pipe that connects to the end pipe is slightly out of shape and the gasket does not fit in correctly.

Can police stop you for emissions?

Q. We know the police can do you for a noisy exhaust, but have they ever done anyone for excessive emissions on aftermarket exhausts?S Boucher, email A. Not as far as we’re aware.

Can I fit mismatched tyres to my Fazer?

The front Dunlop Sportmax on my Yamaha FZ6 Fazer is getting due for replacement and I’d like a reasonably priced new tyre that would suit. The rear tyre is also a Sportmax but has lots of life left.

Will my loud exhaust pass an MoT?

Q. I have a US-import GSX-R750 with a Yoshimura end can fitted which hasn’t got any markings on it at all. No 'not for road use' or 'race use only', but it does seem a little loud. Where do I stand legally if I am stopped by the police? I assume your average officer would not know if it is ...

Is my NTV's fuel system causing rough running?

My Honda NTV650 93 model is running rough at idle and at speed it has a lot of vibration from the engine. I have put some carb cleaner though the tank for three tanks of petrol and it has helped the pick-up of the engine. It used to have a real bad flat spot between 3500-6000rpm but that’s now gone, ...
