    It's as said above - but the annoying thing is that the bottom of the mudguard hole is missing - so a bolt won't hold well. For now, I've got two large washers either side of the mudguard hole and a...

    This was my old CB125F of course, but the dealer was able to help me; the top box was a Shad model and they were even able to get the ignition key to work with the reinstalled tumbler. Might be worth...

    Sticky: Kimmeridge Bay

    The previous owner of my bike decided to remove the 'NC700X' stickers from the sides of the bike. I suspect, as it looks similar to the NC750X, this was an intent to make people think it was the...

    I bought a mobile phone from Amazon and when it was delivered, the box was very light. The packaging Amazon use isn't especially secure and can opened without opening, if that makes sense; evidently...

    Yup; work is hectic and no better way to wind down. If the road is empty because it's so late? More the better!

    Sticky: Night ride!

    Thanks for all of your comments here guys, much appreciated. It is indeed a DID VX2 chain and I subscribe to the philosophy of leaving alone; I'd check tension every 500 miles or so, potentially...

    Yup, that's my thought; keep an eye, make sure there aren't any tight spots developing and lube it more often than I might normally. Open to suggestions if anyone thinks there are better chains to go...

    Tool tube installation - a couple of posts here showing how I did that :-)

    This morning I cleaned my bike within an inch of its life; quite therapeutic I think and a fantastic way to get reassurance that everything is where it should be.
