    I bought a new disk lock today because I'm down to one key for my old one which could eventually leave me in a sticky situation :whistle: I got an Abus Strada which looks pretty solid. Anyway, I'm a plumber so I thought I'd have a go at opening my old lidl lock. It's 2 years old and was still...

    I have purchased some second hand BMW City panniers, however there are no keys since they were matched to the previous owners bike. So, is it possible to remove the locks without the keys - I know motorworks sell replacement locks, or will I have to replace the catches as well? The only details...

    I've just acquired a new (to me) top box, but the previous owner was unable to find the keys... No problem - I know that replacement locks can be had for about a tenner... But I assume that the usual replacement procedure would involve removal of the old lock using the old key. Does anybody...

    Hi - anyone have one of these babies? Any good? :think: Carole Nash have very kindly sent me a leaflet on this lock and at a bargain price of ?9.99 I'm sort of guessing its likely to be a bit crap. . . :doh: However - I need a disc lock (Not as badly as I need them to fix my Dakar) :wall:

    Hi, Having recently purchased a used set of BMW panniers for my Dakar, I immediately called SPC to get new barells.. Firstly the guy on the end of the phone takes a sharp intake of breath, and makes out like its a massive deal to change them, and that this is why I shouldn't buy second hand...

    Well it's been lovely weather for riding - maybe a tad too hot. :doh: I was wondering if any one has changed the front light on their GS - it's the one part that seems to let the look of the bike down, I think the 1150(?) or 1200 has a much nicer light setup... 8-) Has anyone added a helmet...
