    I suddenly realised I have been riding my recon RD04 for 12,000 miles. Effectively that is 12,000 miles from new (even though the engine had done 65,000 before the recon). I have changed the oil and oil filter three times in that 12,000 miles but done nothing else - just abused it. I'm going...

    Hello from Greece. I have just bought a 03 TA and would like to ask you guys if there is a fuel reserve switch like the AT or a reserve light when fuel is low? Also, is there a thread with pics that I can use to adjust the preload?

    Noticed of late lots of differing font sizes appearing. I have just got one of those tablet jobbies and I know many use phones instead of the "old way" on a PC. I never adjust the forum preset font size unless I want to shout. How come there are so many differing sizes, even in my own posts...

    My gear lever is a bit loose and doesn't seem to have enough left to tighten it to the shaft. I've looked on line for a replacement but they seem few and far between on this island. Do alternative models have the same ones? Or shall I break out the Dremel clone and 'adjust' the gap? :)
