Royal Enfield 500 Classic Test Ride Review Doug said :-
I've loved singles, having started on a CB100N, through a CB250RS then a pile of IL4s, before going back to a '63 AJS M18, '92 Enfield Bullet 350cc, '04 Bullet 500ES and my current ride, a '94 Suzuki LS650P.

With the last two I've done a fair bit of motorway commuting, and the "find a lorry, sit behind it" served well on the 500 Bullet. The throttle pretty much is just a volume/vibration control once you're over 60mph on the cast head engines but it was happy to sit there for the 30 mile stretch, twice a day for a couple of years. I would have thought the newer offerings would have been less vibey, so I really need to try one for myself. Can't say the fuel injection floats my boat though, and the prices aren't the bargains the carbed models were. Ah well.

Loving the site, slowly working my way through all of the articles - keep it up :-)

New Tyres - By Ren Withnell Kel said :-
My local tyre places loves to retell the story of the guy on his classic brit bike. new tyres, bike just polished, set off and lobs it across the roundabout. he tried to put a claim in against the shop even thoh they had witnesses saying they had warned him.

OH YEAH! Imagine that...140mph on a 125. I think it would self-dissemble!

I'm sure you worked out I meant 140 MPG...miles per gallon...DOH!

CBF 250 - My New Bike! Daf said :-
I'd be very interested in more information on reconditioning the valves/replacing valve seats. I've got 36,000 miles on mine, and before I bought it I don't think the clearances had been looked at... So the valves may not be as gas tight as they used to be. So a video would be really helpful, thanks Dave. Out of interest, what is the expected lifespan on these engines??
