Proper kit

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Show Preview -

Loved the ar­ti­cle about Jim and his son as pil­lion, I ap­plaud him for kit­ting Harry out prop­erly too. Can I sug­gest that you try out an Ox­ford Pil­lion Pal? My wife and I use one and she finds it very com­fort­ing.

Now, can I ask for some ad­vice on a GPZ900R please? I’m aware of the old carb ic­ing is­sues – are there any other prob­lems about from age re­lated ones I should be aware of? Best mag out there.

A 900R is a fine choice. Over­heat­ing can be an is­sue, as can lack of grease on the rear link­ages. Stock ex­hausts rot and the left-hand spark­plug hole can fill with wa­ter if the bike’s left on its side­stand – JM
