2012 zx10r/rear wheel play

Hello, long time lurker here. I'm really hoping someone can help me.  I have a 2012 zx10r. The other day after a short run I noticed there was sideways movement in the rear wheel. I've not noticed any difference in handling, but when I grab the wheel with both hands I can move it side to side by about 1mm maximum.  I got someone who knows what they are doing to have a quick check and they said there was definitely a problem, but it wasn't the chain, wheel bearings or brakes, and the wheel wasn't loose.  They said it was coming from ...

GZ 125 Marauder Friction Zone

Hi Everyone, I'm new to the forum and new to biking so glad to be here to pick up some useful hints and tips about...well everything really.  First off the bat - I've bought a Suzuki GZ 125 Marauder to pootle around on in-between DAS lessons and I've noticed the bite point when releasing the clutch is really far out. My fingers are almost fully extended before the clutch reaches the friction zone, and my concern is that this will affect my slow maneuvers. The bike didn't come with a manual, so I was wondering if there was a way ...

Don't buy from Bennetts!!!!

My bike insurance was automatically renewed by Bennetts at a high cost compared to other insurers. Apparently Bennetts can help themselves to you money (because they have your card details from previous policies) by claiming that they sent you a reminder by post. The reminder allows you to stop the automatic reminder, great but the first I knew of this was when my new policy arrived. Phoned Bennetts and was told it would cost %XA330 to cancel a policy that I did not want or ask for! You couldn't make this up!Martin

Test ride minor damage resulting in highly unreasonable claim

Recently I took a test ride on a bike I am interested in. While out on the test I stopped to take a pic of the bike and not being used to its side stand I dropped it from a standstill causing the plastic hand guard to brake, a few minor dents in a sheet metal exhaust guard, the brake lever and the pillion foot-peg. Please see enclosed pictures.Back at the dealer I agreed to mention on the form that was filled in all the bits that showed even the slightest sign as the chap there said, what it appeared ...
