Parts Review: Pattern mirrors, AW Motorcycle Parts

rating is 0 Parts & accessories

Steve Farrell, 01 July 2013 07:30

Pattern mirrors, AW Motorcycle Parts, £33.18 a pair including postage Time tested: 200 miles/one month What’s good? It's hard to find new genuine mirrors for 26-year-old bikes, and I dread to think the price. So I got pattern ones for my Kawasaki GPz550, readily available from online retailers. They all look the same on a computer screen, so I bought ...

Accessories Review: Akito medium kit bag

Akito medium kit bag, £10.99Time tested: 14 years What’s good? This is one those products that’s so good you take it for granted and forget about it. Then one day you think: ‘I’ve had that for 14 years and it’s as good as new.’ It’s been on every overseas bike test I’ve attended since 1999, as well as family holidays. ...

Accessory Review: Tucano Urbano Nano Shoe Covers

Tucano Urbano Nano Shoe Covers, £33.99 Tester: Steve Farrell Time/miles: 2000 miles/18 months What’s good? These really do make old boots waterproof again. They fold up into a zip bag not much bigger than a fat wallet, which is why they have ‘Nano’ in the name. They’re no less waterproof for it. I’ve never known them to let in a ...

Accessory Review: Granger’s G-Max Universal Footwear Proofer

Granger’s G-Max Universal Footwear Proofer, £5.99 Tester: Steve Farrell Time/miles: One month/1000 miles What’s good? The trouble with waterproof attire is that, sooner or later, it stops being waterproof. No one wants to chuck a costly pair of boots. In theory, this spray saves you that pain. Spray it onto damp, clean leather, and ‘maximum waterproofing’ will be restored. Also ...

Product review: Garmin Zumo 220 satnav with Bluetooth headset

Garmin Zumo 220 satnav with Bluetooth headset, £399 Time owned: One year What’s good: Its industrial in its level of reliability and durability. Mine has bounced along the road (my own stupid fault). A plastic border around the screen came off and went back on. Otherwise it was unscathed. It's as tough as a rubber ball. It's waterproof and has ...

Product Review: Bumpstop ground anchor

Bumpstop ground anchor, £49.99 Time used: Three monthsWhat’s good: It can be fitted to a wall just as easily as the ground, making the chain more difficult to attack by elevating it. The 10mm diameter bolts that secure it are impossible to reach with the chain in place. It’s relatively cheap but double-walled and tough looking. The manufacturer says the ...

Product review: BMW bike cover

BMW bike cover, £64 Time used: 10 months What’s good: Typically of BMW accessories, it’s well designed and made. BMW supplied it when I had a G650GS as a long-term test bike. Now that’s gone but I still like to use this on my own motorcycles. It’s easily big enough to accommodate a middleweight with fairing and luggage rack. It’s ...

Product review: R&G heated grips

R&G heated grips, £40 Time used: Four months What’s good: Bike manufacturers’ heated grips can cost £250. This pair is £40 and works perfectly well. The control box can be a weakness on aftermarket grips likes these. The box on the £80 Oxford Products pair these replaced was awkward to use and stopped working. But this one is easy to ...

Product review: Tucano Urbano off-road and custom-bike cover

Tucano Urbano off-road and custom-bike cover, £40.99Time owned: Nine months What’s good: Some covers I’ve used rub on bodywork under the motion of the wind, damaging paintwork over time. This has a silky-soft lining which should prevent that. It’s easy to sling over the bike, roomy enough to accommodate a top box and has holes along the hem for a ...

Product review: R&G Superbike Cover

R&G Superbike Cover, £43 Time used: One year What’s good: It has an elasticated hem to keep it on the bike, plus holes to thread a security chain through. There are air vents to let moisture escape and a foam insert to protect your tank. It’s waterproof (as you’d expect), heat resistant and affordably priced. What’s not: It’s small. R&G ...
