Here are some tips and techniques on how to rejuvinate a slightly tired bike, what needs regular work, what can wait a little, what is cheap, easy and gives the best results, and what is just fancy frills.

Kayaba & Showa Suspensions

Chances are that your bike, and probably even your car, has their suspension.

Not all of your bike is made by the name on the tank. Some of it, especially suspension, gets sub-contracted to other companies - usually experts in their field.
This is how these suspension companies got to where they are, who runs which suspension & why, and where it looks to be headed in the future.

Shock Linkage Maintenance

Is your rear suspension feeling sticky or stiff?

It could be your shock, but it's more likely to be your shock linkage. It can be fixed in under an hour with basic tools, without removing the swingarm or shock.
This article gives a foolproof, step-by-step guide to inspecting, diagnosing & greasing the relentlessly abused bearings in your bike’s swingarm linkage.

Closed Vs Open Chamber Forks

With info on durability, performance, tuning & maintenance on both types of modern fork, this article can make you an instant expert on fork design, and give you some food for thought on what you want in your next bike...

Suspension Mods for your Budget

What kinds of modifications suit my budget? How can I get the best Bang for my Buck?

Do you know what modifications are available for your bike? Not many people do. And while some can spend big chasing the very pinnacle of performance, most of us have more modest funds.
Here are some options to make your suspension better, what difference they make, and what you can expect to pay for them.

Gearing

Changing your bike's gearing can transform its personality overnight.

If you're looking for a competitive edge, its something that few people think of, but can make a huge difference to your lap times. And if you haven't, any fancy engine work is an expensive waste.
This article explains the parts in your driveline, how to change them & care for them, and how to set up your gearing to best suit what you ride.

Air / Fuel Ratios

Is your engine running properly? Got a flat spot in power? Is it lean or rich?

Whether your bike runs carburettors or fuel injection, a good tune saves you money on fuel, it extends the life of your engine, and gives you more power. It's all win-win.
This guide tells you how carbs and efi work, how to diagnose what's wrong or how to improve it, and tells you how much you can expect to pay for it.

Changing Shock Springs

They are full of potential energy, and if you aren't careful with how you remove them, can be shockingly powerful.

Because they are always being pushed around by heavy bikes and riders, they need to be. Keep that in mind the next time you buy a bike; springs are matched to weight, and you may not be the weight they had in mind when designing the motorcycle. It might be time to change them.

Clutches

It takes a pounding from both the engine & the driveline, and no sympathy from riders either.

There are different types of clutch for different uses, different ways they are actuated, a huge selection of aftermarket parts to be thought about, and a whole bunch of different ways to be set up. Kind of intimidating.
We take you through the inner workings of a clutch, how to take it apart, some of the common problems, and how they can be fixed.

Changing an Engine Timing Chain

Timing is everything. Especially when it's measured in milliseconds.

4 Stroke engines have been running overhead cams almost exclusively for decades now; they reduce friction and valvetrain weight compared with the old pushrods, making for higher revs, more reliably. And the key to keeping it all from smashing into one another is the chain that links the crank and the cams. It's cheap insurance to keep it in check & adjusted.

Changing A 4 Stroke Piston

How well do you know your engine? If you're a beginner, here's your chance to learn, and if you're experienced, here's some great tips.

The most internal part of any 4 stroke internal combustion engine is the piston. In this article our resident motorbike guru Nick takes you through the step by step of removing, cleaning, diagnosing and rebuilding the very core of your engine.

Loud Bikes & Locked Gates

Aftermarket Mufflers are really popular, and make more power with less weight. Or do they?

What aftermarket mufflers definitely do is make more noise. And constant noise pollution can make enemies of friends pretty quick. We go through the basics of muffler design & construction and explain the pros & cons of each, and Nick even offers you some free stuff!

Teknik Tapered Wire PDS Springs

WP's PDS (no-linkage) rear suspension is simple, light & low maintenance. But not smooth or progressive.

Teknik's tapered wire progressive shock springs help make the PDS as smooth as a linkage system. And they've helped Tye Simmonds & Ben Grabham win races for the factory KTM team. Read how & why we developed this spring and the unique construction that makes it is so much more progressive than any other spring available.

Replacing your Bike's Graphics

Your bike's graphics say a lot about your personality. Your sense of style, your sponsors, your likes and how you treat your bike.

Want some wild custom war paint? Or looking to take your battered old body panels back to fresh crisp factory clean? Either way you will need to take off the original sticky stuff before you put on new ones, and unless you want it looking like a kids sticker book there are some tricks & tips you will need to know.

Upgrading Kawasaki's KX450F

It's back and better than ever. But it can be even betterer.

With all new & more adjustable ergonomics, a slimmer chassis, better shocks & some tricky electronics (including a launch control system), the 2012 KX450F is a big step up, and the best in years.
But if you have a 2011, don't despair. You can get it to turn in harder & faster for tight corners, handle rougher tracks & improve the ergonomics dramatically too. With the right mods, the older bike can still be the better bike.
