    The Bucket Foundry

    Thread Starter: Yow Ling

    The 50

    Thread Starter: cotswold

    There seems to be a resurgence in the 50cc ranks so I thought I would post up how I am going about mine ( Johns ). John Steer got hold of the ugliest Honda MTX50 you would ever wish to see, it was a rescued beach toy and was very neglected. John put an FXR front end in and also modified the...

    Ecotrons Engine Management

    Diavel suspension is too firm

    Thread Starter: jamjam

    I just traded a Ducati Monster for a Diavel and finding the suspension on the Diavel is really firm. I have made many tweaks as per the owner's manual and the best I have found is backing everything off (comp and reb) to their softest setting (front and rear) and then winding the rear preload right...

    Flashing your headlights to warn of cops

    Thread Starter: Asher

    How come no one does this any more? Flash your high beams at oncoming cars to warn of a cop or speed trap that is. Bikers are pretty good at warning each other but when I'm in the car almost no one warns ya. I try to warn people a km or two after but I feel like I'm one of the rare few. 5 or 10...
