    When i bought my 89 nx i noticed the idle screw cable was snapped off at the carb, the tosser i bought it off assured me he had a spare and would send it on. Well he didn't and i have no way of adjusting as the cable has snapped tight up to the point of entry, CSNL have none nor D S. does anyone...

    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...

    G'day everyone, I have a loud metal on metal tapping sound coming from the rocker cover on my 82xr250r, I'm sure it just the tappets needing adjusting but I thought I'd post it here anyway just incase it might be something else. The 2nd thing wrong with my xr at the moment is 5th gear, I took...

    Hi All New to moter bikes in general. A few months ago bought myself a AT after passing my test and really like the bike and get compliments everywhere I go. The Engine was a little rattly so set about servicing it and adjusting the valves. This has turned into me changing the timing chains as...

    I've worked on bikes a large number of years and I cannot believe I cannot make something rather than spend soooo much on a screwdriver. I cannot believe I need to buy another screwdriver for one job, I have a million; cheaper to sell the bike! Has anyone worked out a way of adjusting the...
