Re: Cheaper Kriega Version-

I just received a Kriega os 36 luggage kit and ultimately so far very impressed. It’s so secure on the bike and first time fitting. Very quick on and off so really happy. Although much more than this money wise Photo then? I'm looking at these at the moment so it'd be nice to see how they fit on th...

Re: Oh FFS Tyres!!!!! [ big thumping trail bike]

Mitas MC23 is worth looking at too, I think it's better than the MT21, even fine on the road once the shininess has rubbed off.

Re: Air Ambulance petition

I've not signed this as a few years ago I was talking to a few of the people who work on the North West air Ambulance service and they all said they'd rather stay as a charity and find their own funding. Very controversial I know but it means they are in control rather than having government funding...

Re: Husqvarna 701

The cam cover looks like it's a twin cam, the cam is at the back and the balance shaft is at the front, I also think they have the white rad covers, also no power switch under the seat.

Re: Meet Up in Sort, Catalunya 23-27 September 2019

Looks like I'll be on my bike so I'm hoping to get a few trails in on the way down, maybe arrive in St Malo on Thursday morning, get across a bit and then take a few days to get over to Phils (still need to contact you Phil about that) So is there anyone else riding down that would be interested in ...

Re: Crystallised Brake Fluid

I've had it on old bikes that have stood a long time, like 10+ years, my DR needed a good clean out and new seals.

Re: Biker with Ear Problem

I've tried all sorts of ear plugs but never the expensive custom ones. My problem is I hate the lack of feedback caused by them, that along with the screen on the bike, often gives me a feeling of detachment from riding. however I've suffered hearing loss from riding bikes and other noisy work/hobbi...

Re: Wet clutch change KTM 990 adventure 07

As others have said drain cold overnight and take note of the oil filling procedure for the 950/990.
I've never worried about soaking the plates, I just cover them in oil before fitting but soaking them doesn't do any harm so soak away ;-)

Re: Off road navigation app, trans European trail

I'm not sure this is possible? You can setup waypoints in viewranger and get a warning I think, plus you can set a warning for off track, but to get turn by turn there needs to be a fair amount of info on the base map. I tend to use tomtom Go on the road and Viewranger on trails, you just need to ke...
