Ive got a couple of bikes Enduro 450s reading online it seems that all larger cc bike chains have rivet links and small cc bikes split links. Is there a definitive limit with split links? I recently got a JT power transfer chain from chains and sprockets.com and the 520 chain came with both a rivet link and a split link, so for my WR450 if i dont need to change chains quickly should I fit the rivet link for better strenght? but then I heard many road racers also use split links???
Hi to All,I found this site by accident, my good fortune.I am trying to get some clarification before upgrading my F and R suspension, basic stuff at this stage.The bike R1200R 2012 with ESA, 14 Kilometres , nice even rear tyre wear ( low tide like), Harsh front tyre wear with trailing edge lip on tread groove.I am a light weight 64 Kilos without all the gear, no track work, pleasure riding with a little old age heart flutter.The concern :The front tyre wear is a concern, just how to rectify or eliminate. I plan to ditch the ESA and ...
The exhaust bolt securing one of the inner downpipes (inner RH side looking from the front wheel) has sheared off flush with the block. The exhaust is now off.Has anyone in this sitauation managed to extract the bolt with the engine still in place ? If so how ?It is the bolt nearest to the frame but there is a clean line of sight so it may be possible to get tools in there to do the job.I am happy for a decent garage to do the work if they can do the work with the engine still in place. ...
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?
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?

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 ...
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 ...
