    GIVI S310 lights

    Thanks yoyo. I bought a connector like wjfaw suggested. Now I'm on the hunt for lights. I really want the PIAA ones because they look so cool especially mounted under the headlights but sadly they are way too expensive for me. I'm hoping I can find something similar (shape and size) but cheaper...

    GIVI S310 lights

    Hi folks. I want to get some extra lights. Cant afford the factory Yamaha ones and many of the ones I see mentioned on here dont appear to be available in the UK. I've seen these Givi S310 lights. Does anyone know if they are any good? Also, has anyone tried to fix non Yamaha lights to the spare...

    Suzuki T500

    Thanks Squibb. That will, I'm sure be very helpful. Will try to investigate more on Monday. I don't think it's the clutch either and the gear lever itself moves as it always has..it just doesn't engage a gear (1st or 2nd). Here's hoping I can fix it myself. It's a fun bike to ride and usually...

    Suzuki T500

    Thanks WJBertrand. I'm worried that it might be similar for me but the shift lever feels the same as it always did with the same ammount of movement. Strange. Keep any ideas coming please folks. Thanks

    Throttle tube issues

    I THINK the following has happened to me in the past: When changing grips you may turn the throttle to fully open several times and this might be something you haven't done for months of 'normal riding'. At the throttle body end (ie under the airbox) grime can build up where the throttle cables...

    Suzuki T500

    Thanks folks. I've tried shifting with the engine off and still no difference. The shift lever does move through it's normal travel but doesn't 'click' or engage a gear.

    Suzuki T500

    Hi folks. I'm after some wisdom please. Got my T500 out today. Started first kick but wouldn't engage gear (1st or 2nd). Any ideas what it could be? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Guzzi V85 test ride

    Hi Folks. In answer to a few questions. My test ride was almost entirely dual carriageway (deliberately because I do lots of miles all year round on highway). Pretty sure the tyres were NOT noisy but there was so much buffeting/wind noise in my helmet I'm not 100 percent sure. Tyres didn't feel...

    Guzzi V85 test ride

    So I went on a date with a young Italian thing this morning. The S10 didn't mind coz the S10 still wins hands down for the kind of riding I do... BUT..the Guzzi is one of the best looking bikes I've seen for a long time. Really, really pretty. Super smooth gearbox/clutch, nice sound, good...
