Best suspension upgrade for a GSX-R750?

Q. My GSX-R750 K2 is now 10 years old (obviously!) and has nearly 35,000 on the clock. Everything I read about 'suspension' says it will need replacing or refreshing after about 16,000 miles, so I can only assume mine is most certainly well past its best and I am riding around the ‘wear and tear' characteristics? I am considering new ...

Does my Honda Hornet have a radiator fan?

Q. I'm wondering if my Honda Hornet 600 has a radiator fan. When I went on the recent Plymouth Megaride with 4000 bikes my bike was right up in the red on the temperature gauge.
