Bought and fitted (well, got the engineers to fit...) a cheapo top box onto my Renntec rack.

This one:

about £35 all in, seems ok, time will tell, good so far, does what it says on the tin.

Ex - FZS600 ‘03,  now Versys 650 '14
Status S2, GB Shuttle 6.0,TC Helicon, Cubase an' other stuff

Did a proper Repair to the Speedo sensor wires again as after another break in the wires I stripped the covering back as far as i could get it and there was a repair nearly every 1 inch and I stripped back the covering back about 15 inches. Also fitted the Renntec rack I got from ebay for £45 so I finally now have my topbox on the bike rather than it being sat in the garage for months gathering dust  :)
RIP my beautiful red beast 1999 to 2017 😭🏍😭

Removed front brake calipers, cleaned pads of road dust,cleaned pistons and relubed with red rubber grease, copper grease on back of pads, pad pin. Changed brake fluid using a 30ml syringe & length of narrow bore rubber hose topping up reservoir with fresh fluid until clean fluid came through bleed screws. Tools away & out for a ride in the mid-September sunshine. :lol   Note to self -replace pads before next years riding season ( so thats January I guess)

Finally got around to a bit of winter prep.  Downpipes keyed and sprayed with the good ol' back to black.  Centerstand got a hammeriting (a couple of touch ups on the frame too), under the tank got a dose of PTFE spray while I was at it. Next weeks job is some fresh oil and oil filter and a magnetic sump plug. Account for fresh front pads and some wheel paint + stickers and its made for an expensive month, but it will hopefully keep her tidy.   :D :D :D


Had a look at the front sprocket, I couldn't believe the amount of chain lube/ road crap that had built up in there!  :eek :eek :eek

Broadsheets newspapers far superior to tabloids & possibly the best use for any of them? The Saturday Telegraph provides enough material for spray paint work on bikes,oil changes & under the cat feeding bowls.  :lol

In my opinion the most necessary mod ever for the all year round rider, i couldn't be without them.
Never tried Oxford ones, but tried a few others and the current ones i have fitted are the best i've ever had with loads of settings, the top setting being VERY hot. I never thought i'd ever get to use it but when the weather drops below zero they still kick out some savage heat, which none of the previous brands have ever matched. I literally cannot understand how any winter rider can deal with riding without them.
Although i have always wanted hand guards as well on my handlebars but the space for them simply isn't there.

You see this is why I keep painting and filling little holes in my black 18 year OEM ones, issues with alignment, bore size, balancing tubes, is there any that will just be a straight swap

I think issues are caused by the heat from welding process distorting the tubes so although they are jigged they spring back when taken out to cool off,I had simlar issues with an XT600 front pipes got partial refund from seller luckily I've got tools to do the job myself :)

I need a new one of those and the local stealer wanted £7+VAT



Gonna cost me more than that now anyway, the one i bought totally does the job but has a brand new outer diameter of 16mm, which is less than the OEM one.
Saying that, half my OEM one looked chewed to bits anyway so it doesn't really matter, but i just fancied it a tad bigger if possible.
I couldn't find the damn thing at all on the AJ Sutton site, but after a bit of research it turns out that the very large majority of gear levers use the same standard fitting measurements of 8mm inner diameter and 40mm length, so i ordered this one which i'll get in the next couple of days.

about £35 all in, seems ok, time will tell, good so far, does what it says on the tin.


My top box overtook me one day as i slowed down near my work going through a 6' 6" width restriction.
Renntec racks have a manufacturers recommended weight limit of 2.5kg believe it or not, and i think the fact i use 2 roads daily with speed bumps to and from work took it's toll and the rack just snapped clean in half.
2.5kg does sound like feck all but i s'pose they do their own tests and come up with a safe upper limit to cover themselves.

Yes I looked into it a couple of years ago as mine is chewed up and came to the conclusion that most are a standard fit, but that ebay one I think is round but I think I am right in saying that the oem one is oval.
I wil let you pay for the ebay one and then await your in depth report with pictures and fitting instructions
