Product review: Wemmi wipes

Wemmi wipes, %XA31.99 for a tube of eightTime used: One year What%X92s good: These small tablets (about double the thickness of an extra strong mint) expand to become a half-way house between a tissue and a flannel when dosed with a modest amount of water. They%X92ve come in handy for wiping visors, taking dead flies off headlights and mirrors, and even for...

Best suspension upgrade for a GSX-R750?

Q. My GSX-R750 K2 is now 10 years old (obviously!) and has nearly 35,000 on the clock. Everything I read about 'suspension' says it will need replacing or refreshing after about 16,000 miles, so I can only assume mine is most certainly well past its best and I am riding around the %X91wear and tear' characteristics? I am considering new progressive front...

Which springs to upgrade my FJR%X92s forks?

Q. I want to uprate the front fork springs on my FJR1300A (2008 plate) as I%X92m finding it too soft fully-loaded. The brand names I've heard of don't do replacement uprated springs for my year of bike.Tulstyman, MCN forums A. Hyperpro (www.performanceparts-ltd.com) offer a replacement set that comes with detailed fitting instructions for about %XA3120-130. They recommend that you go for heavier...

Product review: Hagon shock service

Hagon shock service, %XA399.50Miles covered/time: N/a What%X92s good: Faced with a %XA3300 bill to replace a weary Hagon shock on the extensively neglected 1989 BMW R100GS I bought last year, I was pleased to discover that a Hagon shock service comes in at a third of that cost. The service included a full strip and rebuild, plus new damper rod, oil seals...

Shock rebuild by Brook Suspension

Shock rebuild by Brook Suspension, %XA3185 Miles covered/time: 1000/three months What's good: It%X92s saved over %XA3100 compared to getting a replacement shock for my Kawasaki KR1S. If it hadn't needed a new rod as part of the rebuild, a further %XA375 could have been saved. A new shock would have meant losing the damping adjuster mounted on the sub-frame, which instead I...

Can I ditch my air-assist forks?

I have a set of Honda CB900FB forks with air-assist. Is it OK to uprate the springs and not use the air assist?Paul Gill, Dagenham Get suspension products in the MCN Shop It certainly is. Air-assist was a 1980s fashion that allowed riders to pressurise the air gap in the forks, ostensibly to stop the forks bottoming out. The trouble was...

Product advice: Help! My bike's steering too quickly

My 2004 Kawasaki ZR-7 has a tendency to flop into corners although I fitted a new rear shock recently. I%X92ve checked the head bearings for play and set the tyre pressures, with 42psi in the rear it feels a little better. Is there anything else to check?Brian Burke, email  It sounds like the forks are too soft and when you%X92re...

Product advice: Should I change my VFR800's suspension?

MarcusMarsh: I have a 1998 VFR800 with 38,000 miles on the clock and the suspension (and rear shock in particular) is past its best, so this winter it's time for refurbishment. I would like to take your opinion on a replacement rear shock. The choices I am looking at are either a new OE Honda shock, which I can source...

Sorting suspension that kicks you out of the seat

Q. I have a 2008 Suzuki GSX-R750 which I absolutely love. It goes and handles as well as I could have imagined, with the only downside being that it can kick me out of the seat sometimes when I am riding enthusiastically along country roads that are less than smooth. Save %XA3%XA3%XA3s on motorcycle suspension Some tell me the rear suspension is too...
