Re: Searching for Masters of Sand!

Full throttle in sand and hang on. You might find a steering damper helps. You can change ruts by bouncing your weight onto the bike and sort of hop out. It takes practice and commitment. That works in hard uk ruts. Of course you need to be standing up for all scenarios.

Re: Tesco's 10w-40 oil query

104k miles isnt too bad for my xt lol. Ok it's a low stress engine only used for commuting. I used this for a couple of changes when they did buy one get one free. They almost always have 45% off offers via emails. https://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/p/car-accessories/engine-oils-and-car-fluids/engineo...

Re: Tesco's 10w-40 oil query

I've used cheap car oil in my xt660z once the mileage got high and I stopped worrying about it. 104k in and no clutch slip. Used car stuff in old gsxr too and no clutch slip 57k on clock.

Re: Puncture repairs

I've also found the patches come off nowadays, so I carry spare tubes and just change them. If I was on a trip and didn't have access to another tube after changing I'd have a go at pat hing again just as a stop gap. Solo they seem ok but two up and at speed the weight causes more heat and they come...
