    Oil question

    Hello, got my first bike a while ago and now it is time for a oil change. The manual suggests 10w40/10w50, i have 4L of 15w50 since the last owner said he had used that one. Is it safe to use it or should i buy another type of oil? Thank you in advance. Anton

    Some Progress In Finding More Engine Performance

    Hi, Do people know, if the old diameter of the Thruxton 900 (04-15) headlight is the same as on the new Thruxton 1200?
