    My nx650 RD02 (1989) is in need of a new shock. The current shock is an old Hagon that is at least 20 years old fitted by the previous owner and I doubt very much it is serviceable by the look of it. Im on a tight budget (meaning I don’t want to spend a fortune) but need to replace it...

    Hola. I hope this isn't too much of a newbie question but... I had a bit of a weird rattle coming from the front end whilst braking on cobble and, on checking, one of my caliper bolts (on my RD04) has gone AWOL So, my first question - It's these things right? OEM Honda Flange Bolt 8X40...

    1 month left on my policy that I had not made a claim on. Sold bike & so informed the company. They offered a £9 refund and a £50 charge for the "Admin"; net result I owe £41 to cancel. If I don't cancel and pay then they will cancel and send me the bill anyway. How can it cost £50 to type into...

    So I failed an MOT on an exhaust hole I didn't notice had formed. Fast forward to today and a bit of the wire brush and I have a lovely hole and surrounding rust. I guess I can patch it somehow but not sure of best way. Someone mentioned a sleeve but if I can avoid removing the whole system...

  11. Transalp
    Hello again Thanks for the help on the previous post. I am looking to fit some hand guards & a taller screen on my 650v. Is their any recomendations, or any to avoid. The hand guards are more to keep the wind off, not smash into trees. Or do I just buy a new AT? thanks trevor
  12. Transalp
    Hi folks, hoping somebody can point me in the right direction to cure an irritating fault; 1987 600 transalp always fires up on just the rear pot sometimes the front kicks in after a minute or two but normally I end up riding off down the road for half a mile or so before it decides to join...
