    Hi, Looking at some Oxford throw over saddle bags or maybe Ortlieb (if I do the dishes and ironing for the next month) for my 2000 650 GS Will the bags survive a couple of long-ish ride outs without melting on the exhausts or must I get some frame work. I've only been doing daily trips and...

    I have no controller for my Oxford hot grips but they both read 10ohms accoss the circuit, if I wire them straight to 12v they should heat up? I assume there's no resisitor lowering the volage / ampage in the controller until you turn the heat down. I'm not fussed about a new pair also I don't...

    Just popped round the block to see if we had cured the terrible mis-fire by changing the coils plus stripping and cleaning the carbs. A big fat no. Just popped the seat and happened to put my hand on the Voltage reg, hot enough to burn i'd say. Checked the connections to it and the plug with...

    Hey all. Fitted Oxford hot-grips to my ST last weekend and having trouble swith them. Basic run-down is this: Wired direct to the battery. Seem to run fine with headlights off but keep switching off with the lights on unless the revs are high. Now I figured that this would mean that the...

    Hot off the press, the all new F50GS All I'm saying' is that this must be one of those spy photos from the German countryside. Sweet lines, touring seat, heated grips and a roomy tail bag. I'm sure it'll get over 150 miles to the gallon. And of course BMW will price it out of my reach...

    I have a 95 Funduro that starts to run a bit rough when hot. Usually about half an hour into the ride it acts like I've put the choke on. Unless I keep the revs up in slow moving traffic it will conk out. Any ideas?

    Been riding around in the warm and sunny weather recently. I've noticed my right knee getting quite warm. Put my hand down to find warm air pulsing around the preload adjuster. It's only on the right hand side of the bike. Should I be worried about this or...

    I'm just wondering how hot my heated grips should be getting. I've often heard people saying that after market grips (oxford for example) are to hot on the highest setting. The standard ones on my GS don't seem to get anywhere near that hot. On the low setting you can only just about tell...

    Afternoon all. Fixed my duff starter problem (kind of). Was a loose wire in the starter switch. Things is, it's now getting very hot (nearly caught fire this morning!) Something is shorting it out (probably because the switch has melted a bit inside) I think my best and simplest option is to...
