Front wheel/brake.

Well, I had a seized front brake piston about 2 months ago and ended up replacing the full front brake system bar the disc (lexmoto only sell full systems not just calipers) and its been fine since. Then today I was riding to work and starting getting a kind of rattle through the bars and what sounded like the front brake rubbing every few wheel turns. I changed the brake pads and the inboard pad was worn pretty much all the way down, and the brake calipers and discs were red hot (obviously indicating rubbing). The problem still persisted and I ...

Fzs600fazer

I had no front brake light on my 2002 Fzs600fazer, I removed and cleaned the microswitch and tested it was working, then I touched together the two wires and the brakelight came on, unfortunately I forgot to switch off the ignition when I re-connected the wires to the switch, I now have no lights or horn and it's not the fuse that's blown, any ideas?

bike tracker worth it?

Have bought a lovely bike and was considering a tracker. Its the kind of bike that isnt going to be had by kids as it if quite an effort to steal it. locks, chains, disk locks and so forth. A quick google has shown that informing the police of the location of the bike and most likely thieves incurs a %XA3150 charge for them to retrieve it. I pay something called council tax and seeing as though they havent recovered any of the 3 bikes i have had nicked previously or found the scallywags i feel that doing the hard ...

MT07 sold out....now what

So I took a fellow forums members advise and decided to go for a mt07 as my first 'big bike'. I went down to my nearest yamaha dealer today to only find out there's a waiting list until around November. Does anyone have any alternative bikes I should consider or do you think it's best I wait until the end of the year?

rectifier/regulator

HiTrying to sort out a problem with my sons Honda XR125L4 2005. the battery is not charging and it looks like the rectifier/reg has gone (tested diodes etc). Trying to find a replacement if any one has any good ideas, new ones seem really expensive for some reason (%XA3100-200).The main reason for posting here is that I cannot find any information on how the unit should be fixed to the bike, it appears to be cable tied to the frame under the fuel tank. It has got an earth cable into the loom so am I right in thinking it ...
