  1. Africa Twin
    Dear all, Lately I have been experiencing some nasty issue with the RD07 AT (1995). This issue popped up when driving for 30 km’s at around 130 km/h. Suddenly, the bike started to loose power and couldn’t maintain that speed. I stopped and couldn’t start it again. After a while it ran again...

  4. Transalp
    Hi, I haven't been around for a while, having sold the transalp to my brother. He uses it mostly for touring, and so finds the setup of connector pipe and Leo Vince exhaust a bit loud (but it's great fun for hooning around). I've reinstalled the original HEAVY! silencer box for him and am now...
  5. XR
    Evening gents! As the title suggests I am the new owner of a 03 xr400, which to say the least...needs some work! my biggest hurdle at this time is the gear shift assembly (just the past that slides on and off) was broken and the previous owner decided to weld it bad on to the point that you can...
  6. XR
    Hi All, I've just recently aquired an 93' XR650L and it didn't run well initially. Symptoms where popping once in a while while driving, but also when standing still, dropping gas to idle, it ran for around 15 secs and then one pop in the exhaust and boom stop :-) I reckoned it was running to...
  7. Transalp
    Morning All, The time has come for me to part with my trusty Transalp :cry:. It's a 89 model with 73k miles on the clock and is still going strong, MOT expires 12/18. I've owned the bike for 3 years and done around 23k trouble free miles on it. The engine has a slight rattle but has done ever...
  8. XL
    Evening all. Im on the verge of buying an XL600LMF but have some questions I'd appreciate some views on; 1) The bike has a dicky tacho that seems to wonder all over the place. Looks like a sealed unit, so is there anybody that does repairs? 2) The engine doesnt idle well. I assume that its an...
  9. Africa Twin
    Bought these bad boys from Joom.com for 11 euros(dynamic pricing if you search direct you pay a higher price than if you browse and they show up)(number four of the ones shown) took two weeks to arrive, look good quality with a built in cooling fan etc. Fitted today and the result is like...
  10. Bodgers Corner
    My AT's on it's third headlight fairing (or 'nose cowling' as the parts book calls it). The first two developed bad cracks around the holes into which the side fairing panels connect. I've kept the old fairings with an eye to trying to repair them and have now, after many years, got a plastic...

  13. Dominator / FMX
    A curious thing, ladies and gentlemen... Yesterday I went to pick up my bike from a mate who had done a bit of welding for me (that's another story...) Before leaving his place I checked the lights were working. No tail / brake light. My mate said he had checked all was working after doing the...
  14. Africa Twin
    Hi guys I'm Marco from Belgium. I have an RD04 from 1990. It's a great bike, but has had some bad owners that didn't maintain it. :( I have replaced the rubber inlet seals, valve cover seals, fuel hoses, blablabla... =) Now i am left with one part: a screw, a tiny washer and something on...
  15. Dominator / FMX
    Since changing the CDI my Dominator starts fine first thing in the morning, garaged over night, after work though she is a pig to start. Again garaged all day in a public car park. Messing about with different amounts of choke the bike backfires bad and then eventually starts. The only other...
  16. Photography
    Am I worrying too much? DSLR and small prime lens in a tail bag strapped to the back seat? I'd love to combine my bestest things to do - bikes and photography - but too nervous to take the camera. Not in case I drop the bike or anything, just vibrations and general bouncing about on the back...

  18. Africa Twin
    Hi all, I posted here about 1 week ago about my 3 year old dead battery that caused one of my CDIs to stop working. Since then I have got a new battery (12v 14A gel battery) For a few days I had no issues, but the last 2 days driving my cdi has been acting up. This is what happens...
  19. Africa Twin
    Hi all, Why I'm asking is because I only had CDI failure symptoms for 1 or 2 km and then I put my spare CDI in. Basically what happened was my battery is in very bad shape and isn't holding a charge, the last 3 days the battery was even worse. I was on my way to a motorcycle shop to get a...
  20. Dominator / FMX
    I havnt posted on this page for a while as I havnt been using my Dommie due to other bikes taking up my spare time. My flatside carb sounds like it needs a bit of adjustment and I am not an expert on them. The plug was sooty black so I wound the air mixture out a full turn and this is how the...
