I'm in luck!

Today I managed to borrow a compression tester and a socket set - the engine ran when the bike was recovered and as per suggestions I checked the top end.

Sticky rubber for a skinny bike

My most recent bike is a 2005 Sym Wolf Classic 125, basically a very good clone of the Honda CB125S from the 70s. The tyres on it are still the original Cheng Shins one about 9 years old, and the...
