    My bike recently failed the MOT due to a bald rear tyre among other things. The center tread was worn right down. After checking the history I keep it covered 9,400 miles. My brother thinks that it should have survived longer and that I have too much pressure in them. I know the pressure is...

    All the friction material came off one of my rear brake pads today. It had been in for nearly 2 years and done 20000 miles but there was plenty of meat (5mm or so) left on it. It was an EBC kevlar pad. Has anyone else experienced this? What can cause it to happen?

    The Zigster has been tucked up in the garage for the last 2 weeks (shame on me... :oops: ) due to a lack of me going to work. Thought I would give it a bit of a stretch this evening, and for some reason best known to itself - not a blink from any of the indicators. I've searched the board, and...

    Has anyone had problems with the upper bush on the rear shock on 1995 F650 Funduro ? We have slight movement on the upward movement but the rest of the shock is ok. Will we really have to buy a whole new unit just to replace a single rubber bush. Any suggestions welcome.

    Can anybody help? My oil warning light failed to illuminate today when I turned the ignition on. Everything else appears fine. Problem is I don't know where the oil pressure switch is or how to access the bulbs, assuming it is one or the other. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks in...
