Re: Online Shopping Regret?

Flash looking Chinese adjustable brake and clutch levers for my Tracer Every time I have to use the front brake enthusiastically now I'm almost waiting for the (in my imagination) crappy Areo bar like fake aluminium to snap launching me into the reason I had to stop a bit quick!! So am putting the b...

Re: Honda 450L

I really fancied one of these when they were announced, hoping it would replace my TTR600, CRF250X and possibly Tracer too - bit of a make life simpler/more room in the garage job. Having now sat on the rock hard perch miles from the floor in Fowlers last weekend am now glad the price put me right o...

Re: Zeta Handguards

Would it be worth upgrading to some Renthals?

Have fitted Renthals to every new bike I've ever had, and used all sorts (Cycra, Acerbis, cheap Chinese etc.) of handguards, and everything fitted without problems.
(As said the Cycra one's dearest, but best)

Plus the added bonus of non-bendy bars :)

Re: Honda 450L

Has anyone actually bought one of these, or even know anyone who has yet??
No intention of buying one myself, just being nosey :)

Re: CRF250 L thread

Thank you all Whilst i take the point of using a Honda sprocket, as have always found original stuff lasts way longer than aftermarket, but as it does the same thing when I put the original back on (no rubber strips attached) suspect that's not the problem. Will go to Bransons tomorrow to have a loo...

Re: CRF250 L thread

I hope this doesn't sound like a dopey question, but will ask anyway........ I fitted a 13T (AFAM) front sprocket to my 200 mile CRF 250L, which felt like it had a bit of play in it so refitted the original Honda one that feels the same! Unfortunately didn't check before removing it, but my 250X one...

Re: fitting rear wheel?

Blimey!! How long is your crow bar if you can spread the swing arm with it one handed?? :shock: It can be a swine of a job on the trail with everything covered in crap, no proper stand, not the best of tools and a sweat on, so a good reason to use mooses! But at home (like said) a touch of grease to...

Re: Gas Gas Adventure 400

It look alright, and have no idea about the whole Brexit argument and angles, but when the words Gas Gas, Chinese and 8 grand popped up I was out!

And possibly not alone in making such a quick and simple decision.

Re: CRF250 L thread

Thanks for that 👍 Have read all info on here and a lot of other places (especially Minky's) but still not sure for example if the EJK thing actually does anything worthwhile, or seen as great by people who have paid for one and now don't want to admit it only makes a tiny difference! Think I'll do t...

Re: CRF250 L thread

As I've just bought a CRF250L this thread obviously looked interesting :D There seems to be a huge amount of information floating around the internet about which modifications are needed to turn it into the managable trail, road or TET type bike I hoped I'd bought. But now struggling to work out wha...
