Which would you choose and why?

Both bikes are pre-registered, 2 miles on clock etc etc.both reduced in price, same price,  2014 models and looking good for a 'know the guy' discount as well.choice is between :Kawasaki ER-6N or Yamaha XJ6n. I have looked at both reviews, ridden the ER a while ago, but I'm looking for some new opinions. Which would you go for and what's your reasoning?

Honda CB1300 (ABS) 2009

Just came back from a ride and noticed when I turned bike off that there was a strange constant squealing noise along with a strong sulphurous smell coming from it, removed seat and cover which revealed steam/smoke coming from battery, which it seems was causing the smell and noise, battery was really really hot!!! I am right in thinking this would be caused by the reg/reg being knackered or could it be caused by something else?

Suzuki GSXR K3 750 noise

Hi,I have a Suzuki GSXR K3 750 which started with a tapping noise coming from the right side crank case. I first thought this to be the cam chain been loose due to the cam chain tensioner been faulty.After replacing this the noise was still present. In the end I got the right side crank case removed and found the crankshaft counter weight to be loose. 3/4 machined screws which had worked themselves out and could have potentially locked the engine up.After some research I found the same issue on a 2011 GSXR 600 in America. Can you please tell ...

VFR800 Vtec buying advice please!

Hi Everyone,I've recently decided to purchase a VFR800 Vtec. Previously I have owned Gixxers, Speed Triple's and an Aprillia RSVR but I'm a bit older and fatter now and the VFR seems to offer me the best of all worlds at a fairly sensible price. I did consider a Sprint 1050 as well but the prices seem to be a bit higher so I've put that on the back burner! I was wondering whether you knowledgeable people could answer a few questions I have about them?First things first I don't have a huge budget, a young family and ...

Honda VFR 800-A

Hi,Bought a VFR 800-A 2 weeks ago and all was working fine when I got her home. Starting her up twice that same weekend for a few minutes only but no further rides because of a busy schedule.Went to take her for a ride today, all instrument and headlight etc come on but no joy when pressing the ignition other than a dimming of the lights. I'm new to biking and the only thing I can think of is that the battery has gone flat? The battery is 2 years old from new and done 10K.Any help or advice would be ...

Replacing all bulbs with LED (including Headlight) - Connections, AC -> DC Conversion?

Dear MCN Experts Team!I am the proud owner of the Vietnamese version of the Honda ANF Innova 125i. While it might not inspire bike envy in most, it treats me well and I love it to bits.At the moment I am in the middle of converting the lighting system. I have found LED replacements for the winkers, brake/tail light, parkers, and headlight. While I understand that there may be those who dislike LED headlights, there is very little policing of laws regarding modifications here and I am convinced that the bulb will be an upgrade from the current one (single ...

Powervalve stiff after rebore

Hi all, does anyone have experience of filing down powervalves after a rebore. After having a .5mm oversize piston fitted my right powervalve only is rather stiff to spin freely or connected to the shaft and its baffling me. The left one seems fine, i have used my spare set right one but still the same. I really dont want to peg the valves open or buy a new cylinder thats plated. Any ideas what i could do on this anyone?
