We 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?
Jacking up your rear wheel during travel just got easier, with SnapJack Portable Motorcycle Jacks by Tirox.
SnapJack lifts the rear end off the ground with multiple adjustment heights of up to .27cm (1/2”). The high-strength low alloy steel jack locks into place allowing the wheel to spin freely for lubing, cleaning and adjusting the drive chain.
How it works
Watch the Tirox demonstration video to see it in action.
The SnapJack is suitable for use with most motorcycles, providing the bike’s side stand is strong enough to support the bike once it’s lifted.
The SnapJack comes with:
Brake locking strap
Secure strap for safe removal
Protective carry case
2 floor protective pads for smooth concrete, painted and epoxy floors
When it comes to charging and maintaining motorcycle batteries we want a device that can do it all for us, and as easily and safely as possible, so that we can focus our attention on other tasks. The new BC K612 does exactly that, with a fully automatic eight-cycle programme which controls battery analysis, recovery and reconditioning, recharging, desulfation, and long-term maintenance.
Anyone who’s ever been unlucky enough to have dropped, or worse, crashed their bike, will understand the importance of crash protectors.
Crash pads protrude from the bike’s engine casing or fairing, and in the event of an accident happening, take the impact of the fall, protecting your engine or bodywork from damage. And this damage can be costly – sometimes setting you back in the near region of £1000! But with Apex crash bungs starting at just £25.50, it’s a little price to pay to potentially save LOTS of your hard-earned cash.
