  1. Dominator / FMX
    Hi All, I've tried searching but haven't managed to find a definitive answer. Is there a direct replacement carb that would fit a 1999 nx650? I was going to strip and rebuild mine as it's got the usual tickover issue but if there is a better replacement that could be used I may well just go...
  2. I'd like to introduce myself....................
    I've just bought a 2012 XL700VA and will no doubt have loads of questions - which hopefully some you can answer. Just moved on from 'old Triumphs' so am looking for reliability and a considerable reduction in maintenance !! Here's hoping.

    I think I know the answer :(
  4. Dominator / FMX
    So, last time I had the carb apart I put in a 55 slow jet As it turns out or seems atm a 55 is a little too much. Seems to run ok but tickover still a bit erratic Anyway, see if you can answer this If I leave it ticking over and then switch off the fuel, it seems to smooth out and the tickover...

  7. Dominator / FMX
    Just bought an RD08, really nice to ride and goes well. 99% of it is in good order, however the exhausts (pipe to muffler) are shot. my first peak under the side panels last night revealed a very sorry state of affairs (much disappointment). Been looking around and I cannot decide on a course...

  10. XL
    I am so eager to buy a good old 1988 XL600LM (1987 last year production), and I found several, but what keeps me from handing the cash is the dreaded cracked heads that RFVC motors seem to suffer from. And strangely, nobody knows the exact cause. Could be bad quality of oil. Could be starting...
  11. Africa Twin
    Wondering if there is a definitive answer to the heated grips issues on the new AT - Has anyone had these fixed, replaced, or some compensation? :confused: I am hearing all kinds of odd stories: Some say they got a refund, others say Honda are not going to do anything :( I'm confused......
  12. Varadero
    Hi all, If the answer is yes can you please have a look at your service manual (the one which honda supplied ) and let me know the initial setting and final setting of the mixture /pilot screw. I think it's on page 5-18. Thanks.
  13. Transalp
    Hello, I recently bought a 1997 Transalp XL 600 V. Today I ran out of gas after ~280 km (173 mi), so I switched to reserve, and continued riding another 15 km (10 mi) before reaching a gas station. When I stopped, I switched back on to the main fuel tank, and started refueling. I was surprised...
  14. Transalp
    Like many Alp owners Ive found that at low speeds, 25-40 mph, that if you take your hands off the handlebars they start to shake quiet a bit. Yes of coarse you shouldnt but-----. Even changing to different tyres didnt make much of a difference. A few weeks ago I was messing about with the...

    Hi guys, I'm about to tackle replacing the starter clutch on my beloved SLR650....and have run up against a problem - too MUCH information! Do I need a 20mm or 22mm screw-in alternator puller? I'm coming up against BOTH figures on t'Interweb...slightly complicated by my verniers, albeit at a...

  18. Dominator / FMX
    Hopefully someone may know the answer to this question... I am converting a Honda SLR 650 into street tracker/scrambler style bike and am getting starting to think about the exhaust. Do any of you know if the exhaust port exit would be the same size etc as the Honda XR650? I have seen and quite...

    Does anybody know a supplier for refurb kits for the @T carburettors? Had a look at RR website but can't see anything listed. Tried phoning them but got no answer! Cheers, Mike
