Re: Carbone Rear Shock

Anybody got any opinions / reviews on the Carbone Italian rear shock absorber? They do two types: standard and sport. Sport has dual spring and is stated to be stiffer than standard (as you would expect). They are retailing at around £55. I am only budgeting max £100 so well within that. The BGM, R...

Re: When POR15 goes wrong.............

Not really that visible inside - seems to be a fair size lump.I have tried breaking it up with a large screwdriver, but concious of damaging the tank.

I'm on the look out for new tyres for my rally/all year round ride, but I've got tubeless on it so 1200 miles max would rule these out. Will probably try Scootsmart next time. Shame about the 365s, if anyone does remember the re-branded name please update this post http://www.scooterlab.uk/compulso...
