FUEL 13 litres @ 51mpg = 146 miles WEIGHT 145kg SEAT 890mm POWER 65bhp TORQUE 50ftlb RIDER Liam Mars­den, all-weather com­muter happy on any type of bike liam.mars­den@mo­tor­cy­cle­news.com With win­ter fast ap­proach­ing it’s time to get on top of keep­ing the Husky in good nick, specif­i­cally the chain. It’s in rea­son­able con­di­tion al­ready thanks to reg­u­lar lub­ing and ad­just­ment, but it’s now time to pay ex­tra at­ten­tion to it. I’ve taken MCN Se­nior Road Tester Michael Neeves’ ad­vice of clean­ing the chain ev­ery time I re­turn home with GT-85, which was on of­fer in the lo­cal Aldi for just £2.99 a can. Bar­gain. I’m not as fas­tid­i­ous as Neevesy, so it’s taken a lit­tle while to get the chain su­per clean but it’s get­ting there. As a bonus GT-85 also works won­ders clean­ing up the gunky wheels. Now the Husky will be nicely set up for the in­evitable ar­rival of salt on the daily com­mute over the com­ing months.

Hat keeps Liam’s hair out of the chain…
