Tester Si­mon Relph Time tested Two years What’s good? If I can hear the ca­ble re­pair tin rat­tling in by pocket, I have a feel­ing of se­cu­rity. This year alone, it’s proven in­valu­able on two oc­ca­sions. The first was when the throt­tle ca­ble snapped on a 1976 KTM 50 Comet Grand Prix I was rid­ing round France. In­stead of be­ing stranded I was able to get my­self out of trouble with a 5mm sol­der-less nip­ple. The sec­ond time I was rid­ing a 1949 Nor­ton 500T in the Lake District when the ca­ble pulled through the nip­ple on the front brake, ren­der­ing the bike some­what dan­ger­ous to ride. After about 15 min­utes of fid­dling around, a re­place­ment nip­ple was se­curely in place. I man­aged to do the re­pair both times with­out us­ing ei­ther of the two re­place­ment in­ner ca­bles that come with the kit. What’s not? Noth­ing, this tin is a must for all mo­tor­cy­clists.

Prob­a­bly the best ten­ner Si­mon Relph has ever spent
