Today We Do The Ton

It’s been 60 years since Bob McIntyre became the first man to lap the Isle of Man Mountain Course at over 100mph. A great way to celebrate this, we thought, would be to make it the focus of this year’s Festival of Jurby T-shirts. All profits from the sale of which go to the Manx Grand Prix Supporters’ Club, to help fund injured riders and the  MGP’s helicopter ambulances on the Isle of Man.

We’re in our third year now of raising money for the club, having raised £26,000 so far. This year, we’re hoping to do even better, and you can help us by purchasing one of these £10 t-shirts. Find our more on our Festival of Jurby 2017 fundraising page.

Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment

The mechanic’s secret weapon

Star Tron Enzyme Fuel TreatmentWe all know the problems that ethanol can cause for your bike. Anyone who’s suffered from it not running right after sitting for a while will know the importance of treating your fuel with an additive. But which one to get?

There are so many on the market, it can be hard to choose. Star Tron was traditionally used to treat tanks in the marine industry, where ethanol is obviously more likely to attract moisture. So if it’s good enough for them, surely it must be good enough for bikes? Mechanics certainly think so – many swearing by it.

Star Tron’s strong formula not only prevents gum, carbon and varnish build-up, it removes it. And it’s all natural, so impossible to overdose.

Treated with this miracle product, your fuel delivery system will stay clean and your petrol fresh. Your engine will start up easily and run smoothly, which makes it ideal for treating old fuel or for using before storing your bike away for a while. It also makes fuel burn more completely, increasing your engine’s performance while providing fantastic fuel economy and reducing smoke and all emissions.

But enough of us waffling on about it. Why not try it yourself and see?

You can buy Star Tron in two sizes from Wemoto: in a super-concentrated formula (30m) which treats 90 litres, or in a standard formula (250ml) which treats 180 litres.
