Re: Tank bag

Hi Jay, Bringing up an old thread. Do you still have the tank bag above? How is it fairing? I'm currently looking for one for quick access to camera, documents etc.... And preferably to fit an A4 map in the top. Will the one you have fit an A4 map? It does look neat. How is it for fitting and remova...

Re: Airbox issue

I've fit the latest design airbox to my 1190 adventure and after 12000 miles, it's still clean as a whistle inside. I have the power parts filter too. Fair does I don't do dusty off roading and as I normally lead the pack, I don't get dust kicked up at the front of my bike but regardless of this, it...

Re: Washing your bike

I have an air force blaster for drying bike. Works well but I'm sure a bigger model may have been better.

Thanks for all your input really washing. Bikes clean now lol.

Re: Washing your bike

I guess not many people on here wash their bikes lol.

Maybe S100 is as good as you'll get. A bit more elbow grease required from now on.

Cheers Al.

Washing your bike

It's a PITA. I used to use Castrol Greentec special bike cleaner (gold bottle) but can no longer get it at sensible money. Some sellers are being silly with prices but it's about £17 per litre at its best price. Halford used to sell it for about £8. The next best I've found is Sdoc 100 but it strugg...

Re: Need 2 replace my sprockets & chain

I took the rear shock off and aligned the swing arm pivot with the sprocket centres. I can't remember the reading, it was a while ago now. That's how I check all my bikes if it's not to difficult to do to get a base tension measurement. The chain still slapped the guide. I had the newer guide fitted...

Re: Need 2 replace my sprockets & chain

Hi mate,

Sorry for the late reply. Chain still clattered, it was better but still clattered. I think it's something you have to get used to with the 990 :lol:

Re: Galfer Brake Discs

Just to follow up on this really. I've had my Galfer brake discs fitted for 1000 miles now and they are spot on. I fitted the Galfer sintered pads with them and the braking is noticeably better, not overly powerful but better than they were. I'd recommend them if anybody is thinkng of fitting these ...

Re: Is there a future for SMT?

Well, a visit to the NEC has sold (or will do) another Super Duke GT. My name will be going on the waiting list for 01/03/2016. That is as long as my dealer has his sensible head on and not the "I'm going to play on this suckers hunger for the latest and greatest bike" (arrogant) head on. ...
