  3. Chain adjustment....

    Transalp
    Hi guys... any tips on adjusting the chain on the 650.. it's the same principle as my old gpz500 but adjusting it on the side stand is throwing me.. and the amount of free play this bike needs is a hell of a lot... how do you find the tightest part of the chain.. and what's the best way to make...
  4. OKO question

    Transalp
    Any of you using OKO, slimy stuff that you put into your inner tube to plug up the punctures? I was just wandering about the amount you put in. I use it on my 125cc, I think it's 200ml per tyre...
  5. Centre Stand

    Africa Twin
    I've riden lots of bikes in the past & most have had centre stands, but the one on my RD07A has beaten me! My last bike was a Vstrom & that seemed to have a short piece sticking out at the bottom... apply weight & up it went. But on the AT there is no bit sticking out & no amount of heaving...

  7. Varadero 07, my new ride :)

    Varadero
    Purchased my new ride the other day, an 07 Varadero 1000. This will be my fourth!!! Very pleased with it, but I do not remember the ride being so firm. It's only done 19000 miles, one owner with full service. The rear is harsh. Smooth undulating roads, no problem. A bit more than that and it...
  8. Servicing costs?

    Varadero
    My Vara 1000va-5 has almost reached 16000 miles and will be soon due the next service. The local bike shop CMC Motorcycles in Derbyshire are asking €482.97 (£350) to do the job, is this a fair amount for all the work involved bearing in mind it is a major service, or would it be better to look...

    Transalp
    I have a 2011 TA700 with original Honda luggage and recently I have found the mounting plate has a slight amount of movement. Is this normal or should I tighten it up with another washer/rubber washer. Thanks Graeme

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi there, Just got a 1995 Dominator and love it and in order that we get off on the right foot I am going to change the oil and filter. I am really sorry as I am sure this has been done to death (but I couldn't find the specifics of my question covered here). It appears that the 1995 era...

  15. Please explain eBay

    Chatter
    I don't get how selling expensive things works. I thought eBay takes 10%. So, when someone sells a bike and says pay £100 to PayPal and cash on collection, does eBay not charge 10% of the whole transaction, or 10% of the £100? If it is the whole transaction, why do people not just say pay...

    Chatter
    Insurers have raised concerns about these and the police don't like it up 'em. The boys in blue make £35 per person per course for "admin" when they would get zero for issuing a speeding fine and endorsement, which is the same amount of work. Insurers raise police speed awareness course...
  18. Grouse sales plummet

    Chatter
    Horrors of horrors :D I am tempted to the light side of Glenfiddich 12 yr old malt. I know, but the price of this delightful little dram has dropped considerably, so much so that I have taken on a considerable amount as a wee stash for the cold weather don't ya know ;) I'll see how things go...
