    Lithium batteries/starter packs

    I read a couple of posts on here about lithium batteries, and I’m sure a lithium starter pack, that have burst into flames under certain conditions, which I don’t really understand. I’m planning to purchase a starter pack in the not too distant future and would like to know what I’m getting...

    Saw earlier that the Qatar opening round has been cancelled due to travel restrictions that are in place because of the Coronavirus. Smaller classes will run though, as the teams are already there due to testing.

    Spark Plug - Potential issues

    I’m aware that this matter has been raised numerous time on this forum, however I’m highlighting again, as it may help avoid a future similar problem that of one of our fellow Super Tenere owners is currently facing. I changed my plugs a while back and all 4 that I took out showed no sign...

    Pad change

    I've now done about 14k mile on my Gen1 bike and have never really been happy with the performance of the brakes, feeling that they lacked any real bite, suspecting that the pad choice was the problem. After a total of almost 17k miles I decided enough and changed to EBC HH pads. Am now happy...
