Any one recommend one of these? Just speakers I don't need a full intercom system or to take calls. Just something to fit in helmet for listening to music. I have a sena set up in one helmet and I've never used it beyond listening to music. I don't want earphones as I wear earplugs. Thanks in advance.

The cat on the bike is welded on the header side (RHS of pic) of the cat but on the can side it's just pressed into place. (LHS of pic)

At least that's how it looks to me. Theres no weld all the way round and there is a gap visible on the bottom.

Looking at mine I was wondering if I could... [Read More]

It'll be a slow process, or as slow as I decide to take it.

Would you argue with this nutter?

I love him. For all his faults, he is a biker to the core. and a better rider I have never seen.
