I read that one on paper when it came out. Neil Graham is now editor of the magazine, and doing a great job. Re-reading that article though, I must admit I was thinking to myself "If you had that much trouble changing timing belts, you really might like to leave the fork rebuild to someine else..."

the early 900 motors had pullies on the cams like the lower ones with a lip. they made it almost impossible to get the belts off without removing the timing shaft pulley. or doing what i do and get the side cutters out and remove the lip. that works a treat, is very quick and removes the hassle next time.

Ah, I guess I should cut poor Neil some slack then! I have only ever changed belts on the injected bikes, and that is a pretty easy job.

Great news....I dumped my subscription when Bruce Reeve quit in 2005. Didn't like the new guy.

I checked out because I was tired of Bruce and Max... Boring fluffy reviews and they changed from the stapled magazine spine which was much easier to read.
After the story of crashing the Triumph Rocket was the last call; they blamed the bike, the roads: everything but the rider.

Check out a recent issue. Neil and Uwe have made it something special. NOT the place to go for detailed tech info on new bikes - it really isn't competing in that arena. But it does provide a uniquely Canadian persepctive, and the writing makes Sport Rider look like it was written by 5th graders. Make that ESL 5th graders.

I most certainly will.

Hehe...I got into a flame war with Costa Mouzouris on some of his early blunders. Stupid things; like he mispelled Yonge Street in the editorial. I was just POd Bruce had left. He ended up printing my email in the "Ugly" section of feedback. A badge of honour I wear 'till this day.
