    Given my recent experiences with a dead camshaft on a bike which has less than 3000 miles, I've been doing a lot of reading about cams and cam wear and corrosion. Whilst the cause of my dead cam was in fact lack of use and corrosion as a result, I came across a lot of talk about ZDDP. ZDDP is an...

    Hi folks, Just a quick question. When I bought my beloved AT RD04 from 1991 in 1998 we had only gasoline super with lead in Portugal, so I used that on her. Now the only gasoline we can find is unleaded (in the octanes of 95 and 98). Since I'm a cheap son of a gun :D I use on it the unleaded 95...

    Hi Lads - just looking for your thoughts on this... When doing around 80 - 120km/h on my @T RD07A, all is good with the engine, until I throttle back very slightly, say on a downhill to maintain constant speed, then it feels like the engine is jerking slightly/cutting out for very short...

  6. Transalp
    Now I know as well as most do on this forum that my transalp is ultra reliable, but I also have a Armstrong MT500 so thought this stuff might come in handy. I also want to know where the hell it was thirty years ago when almost eveybody could have used some! YouTube - Wynn's 'Start You...

    Anyone ever heard of this fuel additive before? The blurb reckons it'll improve performance, economy and run cleaner. Any experiences with this stuff? :?: :idea: :? :? http://www.broquet.com/
  11. Africa Twin
    Got a little bit of a scare last night - my AT stopped working in the middle of the North Circular. Luckily it wasn't that far from home, so I could push it the rest of the way. There's about 10l of petrol in the tank, starter and battery are fine, but the engine would not start. It had a...

    Just wondering about this: I was having a look around at the local motorcylce shop, and saw a shelf full of fuel additives. one to clean the carbs, one to dissolve the oil particles, one to remove burnt bits etc... :?: My question, I'm having trouble to believe all these "wonder" liquids...
