Re: 750 Sport restoration project

Hi Andrew, Try removing the front guard (fender) and ride over an area where you typically get the dreaded clunking noise. I experienced a similar clunking noise when hitting the occasional bumps... I found the front guard flexes easily and judging from wear marks hits at the lower aspect on the eac...

Re: Fuel Changes in the GB and Northern Ireland.

Personally I stay well away from any ethanol blend. Confusion from the masses continues to surround octane values... In simple terms the higher the octane rating the more compression it resist before detonation. Whilst some argue it burns cleaner, unless you have increased your compression ratio fro...
