Drop-down visors: are they any good?

Anonymous, 29 August 2012 11:55

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). But among our forum ...

MCN, 07 June 2012 16:59

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 police stop you for emissions?

MCN, 02 April 2012 13:25

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.

Shoei XR-1100 problem

Anonymous, 15 March 2012 03:36

I wanted to pass on a concern I have with Shoei's XR-1100 crash helmet. The lid is awesome, very comfy, visor removal is easy and it is reasonably quiet. It suffers in one way only and has really caused me concern. It has a lip on the back and this in my opinion could possibly cause an accident. It is fine ...
