Re: CRF450L Mixed Feelings.

Wow, now that's a restriction! Could have had a C90 carb on there and it would have been bigger :D

Price isn't bad if it's the ECU and the rubber, I was asked for nearly £200 20+ years ago at a Honda dealer for an ignition unit.

Re: Brenhden's TET

I usually break twig for taking ticks off the dogs, very rare, it works quite well. You need to break it so you end up with lots of bits sticking out, one of them will have a suitable V.

Re: Tyres

IMG_20190625_181254.jpg Picture is the K60 fitted to a KTM 690, get more miles than the starship Enterprise. I fitted Bridgestone A41s on the 990 for a trip ragging around some German twisties, classed as a 90/10 tyre, wouldn't do more than gravel off road, but loved the feed back and grip from the...

Re: Tyres

I've just fitted a Mitas Terra Force R to the back of my wifes 750 AT and she likes it more than the previous Anakee 3. I'll be trying them on my bike soon too. All of the tyres you've mentioned are fine on anything stone based, tar, gravel etc, once in mud or wet grass they all quickly reach their ...

Re: Husqvarna 701

Yeah, very impressive, especially considering the 701 probably puts down about 60bhp at the wheel. I've got a pair waiting to go on the Beta for the Pyrenees trip in September. Phil swears by them too. (He stands next to the tyres and says "fuck, bollocks, wank....") Haha, I bet he does. 60hp at th...

Re: Recommendations for Garage Lighting

I have been using two 600 x 600mm flat LED panels , with a 'daylight' colour, they are great, very little shadows almost like having a skylight and I think they were only about £20. They are screwed between two battens screwed to the ceiling and the powered via a small transformer. https://www.amaz...

Re: Husqvarna 701

Anyone tried the MotoZ Rallz on a 701/690?

I'm looking for a tyre that'll manage 2.5K miles and be good in a variety of conditions off road, I currently use the Mitas MC23 and it'll do 2K but I'm not sure it'll manage much more.
I'm not interested in the Mitas E07 or K60 etc.

Re: Recommendations for Garage Lighting

Look up LED panel lights, they are great for office/workshops. I've got a few and because they are a flat panel the light they give off is great for working under, they don't cause as much shadow as a single light point or strip light. I also have LED strip lights (florescent tube replacement) and t...
