    Ok I've found a frame with v5 and some other parts. It's been in a shed for some years in a dismantled state. According to the owner it was a one owner grey import which is verified by the v5. It says first registered to an independent importer. It's an Italian factory model but can someone...

    If you've had a look at restricted access to the CRF1000L battery you may have come to the conclusion that wiring up your bike electrical accessories requires install of an auxiliary fuse box. I chose to put one under the pillion seat. Total cost about £25. I considered options (Eastern Beaver...

    Hi all, Been doing a bit of research but no luck as yet, looking for an accessory bar for the 650 TA. Specifically a high bar above the instrument cluster, behind the (tall/touring) windscreen. Keep the sat nav higher up in view. Does anyone know of anyone who has made one/seen one/bought one...

    Good day all! After getting a lot of info on this forum re the FACET fuel pump replacement, I went ahead and did this mod. Replaced the fuel pump on my RD07 with a FACET 40105 and gave the AT a service - fuel filter (not OEM), plugs, oil filter and oil. I did not do the air filter (yet) as...

I went...

    So, being centrestand less, I'm very tempted by one of these https://www.louis.de/en/artikel/liftstick-louis/10003338?list=108368402 but I'm a tad concerned that the shroud that protects the rear brake might make this impractical. Does anyone have one? It's not exactly expensive so I'm very...

    Today I got the first bits of my Radiator fan controllers, These are simple Pulse width modulation MOSFET motor controllers, they come with a control knob and variable resistor to vary the motor speed, but I'll be adding a thermistor so the speed becomes temperature dependant. They are...

    Hi chaps As some might know from my introduction, I purchased a 1988 RD02 NX650 a little while back. Noisy valve cover lead me to believe that the valve were not adjusted properly. While waiting for feeler gauges to arrive, I went out and bought a torque wrench (Halford's pro 8 - 60Nm jobbie)...

    Whilst the sunshine says spring is coming, here's a reminder of the warmer days ahead. Taken on the moors overlooking Niarbyl Bay on the West Coast of the Isle of Man during the Manx Grand Prix in August 2014... If you haven't ridden off road on the Island yet, I highly recommend it.... Stuart

    So I was driving my 11-plate Ibiza into deepest darkest Essex last night, blindly following the Sat Nav to go and collect some bike tyres I had won on eBay. As you know it had been raining all day, and I came to a road that appeared to be partially flooded. I decided it was not too deep and...

    Hello all My V4 has really, really poor lights. When i bought it earlier in the year it had LED bulbs in which were OK for summer and looked really nice. They were however USELESS in the wet for some reason. and also dry or wet the dripped beam seemed non existant. I left them all summer...

    How much did it cost? Smashed my Boano fairing to bits on the Austin Vince event in the Pyrenees, and the whole bike looks pretty tatty since I did the Kielder K2 last year... It looks like I now have rebuild number two ahead of me, and after this, there will be no more rallies, events...
