    Brake Lines

    It may sound like nonsense, but it does work. If you try it, you can often see a stream of tiny bubbles rizing to the surface in the master cylinder, and in the morning, the brake action will be distinctly firmer.

    Hi from Somerset

    Hi, as said in my new members post, I'm thinking of getting an MT-07 Tracer next sping. Wondering if there are any other members on the forum, in Somerset or around.
  4. Hi. I currently run a Honda CB500X with Level 3 Rally Raid upgrades. While leaving it for its service with Bransons of Yeovil, Somerset, instear of their usual CB500F curtesy bike, they gave me their demo MT-07 Tracer with only 60 miles on the clock and I was smitten! The Honda is great, but being that much smaller capacity does not have the bottom end tractability and torque that the Tracer has. It felt nimbler, had nicer brakes, a better instrument display and possibly, a better seat. One huge improvement was the headlights. I gather that the twin headlamps appearance is questioned by some but a 45min run home on unlit country roads later that evening was far more enjoyable than on the Honda. But I'm not rushing into it and am looking to probably by the Tracer next spring. One area that I did feel needed big improvement was the suspension. For the bumpy roads of south Somerset I will be needing suspension with longer travel. Its good to see that there are are various options.
