    Hi again after the silence... Just discovered that my right handlebar heating is not working, I know I live in the south of France but the nights still can be chilly in spring. What can be the cause of that and do I need to go straight to a garage or can it be done at home? Also my engine seems...

    I'm finding the standard bars on my Funduro a bit uncomfortable, I don't get on with how far they sweep back as I tend to ride with my elbows out and it's making my hands ache after a while. has anyone tried any other bars that are a bit staighter that they can recommend? I've looked at...

    I'm still trying to get the right position for the bars so I don't get numb fingers/aching wrists. I was wondering if any CS owners had tried different bars and if the GS ones would be suitable as they are fairly straight.

    Got pitched off my Dakar 6wks ago by some cretin teenager riding the wrong way down a bus lane on his mountain bike. Hit the ground at an Evel Knievel embarassing 3mph (might have been 4) and have "enjoyed" the use of crutches since, although I'm expecting to be fighting fit in the next...

    I was following a thread on another forum and a (UK) member said that he was going to fit Renthal bars to his CS to raise them up a bit. We never heard the outcome. :riding: I have already fitted bar risers to mine, but am curious to know whether anybody has experimented with after-market...
