    I bought the a bottle of the cleaner because, well, it was cheap compared to the other brands which were over twice the cost. The instructions say put a 1/4 of a bottle in the tank on the XF650(18.5ltrs full). Me being me put half a bottle in the tank.On the weekend I used a tank and a half of fuel. During the rides you could notice the difference. Better throttle response and no hick ups at all from the bike.

    I've always been a bit skeptical of using any type of additive in any vehicle but this certainly did the job. I'm very please with the out come.
    Thanks Bonez. I'll give this stuff a try in some of mine.

    Fitted a Shinko E-705 bias tyre on the rear last week. A far far better tyre than the Mezt Tourance radial that it replaced. Greater lean angle without sliding out of corners. I'm very pleased with it. Did a 400km ride on Sunday with out any dramas at all.

    They are excellent value and hard wearing.

    Be wary on bad tarmac in the wet, tar snakes, shiny patches etc. The 705's weak spot, skiddly diddly and quick with it.

    Don't ask how i know this....

    Well went over the Wimblonton-Dannevirke road with a ton of those and slick tarmac without issue.

    Thanks for the heads up though George.

    Splendid.

    I only had moments in the wet, I suspect the reasonably hard compound contributed. Riding in mental rain mode it was not an issue, stayed upright, it was the suddenness that surprised me compared to other tyres I've used. Possibly used to bigger name brands that use more silica.

    Bike weight and torque may have exacerbated this.

    Excellent gravel tyre!

    I'm not interested in children's games, Owl parked his wife's black Triumph twin there in another life. The days of the ol Manawatu crowd were great.
