There's no need to get smart:D

Seriously though, that surprises me. I must admit I did take it at face value when I read that the Gs had a lighter crank in their quest for the extra 3hp. On...

This is/was a common fault on XT660s. The explanation was that the idle speed set in the ECU was say 1600rpm, and yet in a low gear, maybe 1st or 2nd when coming to rest, before dipping the clutch...

07 verses 09

Hi guys

I've been lurking here a while, trying to decide on an Xcountry. There are a few used about here in the UK now, so obviously 07 models. There's quite a spread of prices now, ie a 5k mile...
