    It’s been a long time since I did my theory during my apprenticeship but I’m sure it’s 1.3bar for a normal radiator cap which raises the boiling point of straight water to around 120c, the use of correct Toyota coolant brings this to 125c under the pressure of 1.3bar

    I wouldn’t be too concerned about that either, you could have a coolant system flush done, change of thermostat to a lower opening temp and replace the coolant with a waterless type, this will increase the boiling point of the coolant. It could be worth having an exhaust gas temp installed, this...

    Best 80 series tyre size

    Clutch Slip Travel Risk?

    @Higgy i think he was already there turning to us to say go for it, but if it’s slipping in mud, how much confidence would you have setting off for a long trip? I’m with you on the supping ale tho:)

    Clutch Slip Travel Risk?

    I’d think if the clutch was indeed slipping in the mud, and not being ridden, with that mileage it would be worth making plans to have it changed asap, as you don’t have time to do it before you leave can you schedule a day to have it done on the trip, this will also allow you to plan a suitable...
