Scottoiler – motorcycle chain oiler

Extending chain lifespan

This accessory does not have to be presented to anyone who has contact with the world of motorcycles. For those, who do not know what I talk about: Scottoiler is a company that makes motorcycle chain oilers among other things. The device is responsible (as name shows) for keeping the drive chain and sprockets oiled, to extend their lifespan. (more…)

Lowering the bike – Monia can finally reach the ground

Sometimes what seems to be a very good solution for one person turns out to be a punishment for the other. That’s what happened in the case of the height of the motorcycle seat, which fits my needs. Unfortunately, Monika did not fully share my optimistic opinion. With her 171 cm height and seating point at 935 mm, the situation was a little complicated. In fact, she barely reached the ground with the tips of her boots, while I was more confident in putting my foot on the tarmac. This caused several bike drops when riding in the terrain, as she could not reach the ground. Wham! Every now and again KTM landed on its side. Fortunately, Monika usually avoided being crushed by a motorcycle, by jumping off to the side. (more…)


Trail stand

The light version of a centre stand

In the life of every motorcycle traveller, there will be a moment when he will have to face a punctured tyre problem. This may be pretty easy with tubeless tyres. All he needs to do is use a repair kit like pressurised tyre sealant or plug special rubber strip into the hole. Then get to the nearest tyre fitter, where he can make a professional repair. However, in motorcycles with inner tubes, the situation gets a little more complicated. (more…)


Luggage plate

Let’s be fair!

I was planning to put this description in one article, which would include information about the pannier rack and the luggage plate. So I will not make the Workshop menu look like a neverending story. 😉 However, as I sat down with a coffee in my hand to read what I wrote, I was horrified to say I could not do it. It would not be fair to the manufacturer of the plate. I still feel a little bit of disgust when I think about pannier rack. The luggage plate did not cause too much trouble, although I had to modify it. (more…)

I like bagels. 🙂 Those traditional, from Cracow. I liked them since I was a kid. I come from Cracow, so as a child I had opportunities to eat lots of them. In my opinion, the best are with sesame. I like pretzels too but as for me, it is a bagel copycat. I have never checked what was first – pretzel or bagel. 😉 Although, what KTM used in their 690 Enduro many years after the recipe for baked goods has been perfected, is missing the good taste. By users very often called “pretzel”. (more…)


LED lights

Let the night become a day

As the second stage of fun with lights, I decided to add two LED lights. We came to the conclusion that we do not need to send a beam of the spotlight at great distances and by pointing them towards the sky, try to contact aliens. (more…)



Oops, my battery is dead!

A few years ago a law was introduced in Europe that dictates manufacturers to automatically switch on lights in their motorcycles. Good, it should be safer on roads for everyone. But why did not anybody suggested to use time relay that will automatically switch lights on AFTER engine is running and the alternator does its job? (more…)


Wire harness

What are all those wires for?

Sometimes I wonder where all these cables can be stuffed. ? It is a lot of them and I am not a big fan of electrical components (not to mention electronics…) But well, every sensor, switch, light, computer, etc., etc., needs its connecting kit. The wires are pressed into small gaps, crushed by other components of the motorcycle. (more…)
