Re: what have you done to your bike today??

I haven't done anything as such, but the KTM has developed a horrendous top end knock. It sounds like the little end had gone. As i'm somewhat displaced at the mo (tools in storage, bike at girlfriends and i'm living elsewhere, all 3 locations are 60-90 mins apart), i'm having to throw it at the de...

Re: what have you done to your bike today??
