  4. Temp Question

    Africa Twin

    Africa Twin
    my mechanic is rebuilding the Swingarm linkages and is having trouble sourcing the kit, does anybody know where to get them? We have tried Dave silver , all balls racing and Wemoto. Honda might have them but would prefer not to pay Honda prices. I have read on an old thread that the RD04 has...
  6. Project progress.

    Dominator / FMX
    I havnt posted for a while because I got pissed off when the arsehole danish dickhead I hired made a balls up of my wiring and torched my CDI. The only thing I have done is sent my loom over to Catteeclan as he kindly offered to sort it for me. My seat is ordered and should be here soon unless...
  7. Oops!

    Transalp
    Forgive me as I have sinned. Checked the Alps oil 'tother day & it looked darkish, checked in my service record - September 2011 it was last done. Oops! It seems that I have been so preoccupied with meddling with the shinier stuff coming & going that I have been neglecting Old Faithful. Oil...
  8. Changing the coolant on a 700 - a little trick that may be of use

    Transalp
    There are times I'd like to line up a few of Honda's designers and pelt them with cannonballs made of their own excrement. Sometimes I wonder what they were thinking, or if they were thinking. One of these is the idea that you have to disassemble the exhaust, including headers, to do the...
  9. XR400 rear shock overhaul

    XR
    Hi all Just bought a 2000 XR400 with a knackered original rear shock, anyone know a good place in Surrey to get it overhauled at a sensible price or advice re a self build? All balls seal heads are readily available on eBay but I've not stripped an XR shock (yet) but I have done others, I don't...
  10. Just getting my bearings...

    Africa Twin
    All of 'em, really ;) Head bearings were a 'notchy' advisory, front wheel was an EBay one that's now done 1,000 miles on 'em; rear wheel and swing arm were in a wet garden shed for a few years before I got the bike... OEM Honda, or pattern from Wemoto? 'All Balls' USA bearings seem to have a...
  11. appolagies

    Chatter
    Sorry for not keeping uptodate on the forum for the last few months. Life has served me a couple of curved balls, some real mind benders. Problem not solved but got my head round it. So I can't wait to meet the usual crowd, over a few beers, and a camp fire, it should be an entertaining 10...

  13. Collapsed wheel bearing

    Dominator / FMX
    After removing my rear wheel on my dommie I have just discovered the worst case of bearing neglect I have ever seen in my life,(wasnt me honest!) The bearing has totally dis-integrated and there was only six balls bearings left. The remainder of the ball bearings have destroyed the spacer that...
  14. Sat nav mount

    Crossrunner / Crosstourer
    Well, I decided I wanted the satnav mounted above the clocks rather than from the handlebars but the options are very expensive! There's two on the market but both jut short of £100 decided to make my own as they didn't look too taxing! I looked at the Migsel and the Navihalter. So, as...

  18. Lance Armstrong - no balls

    Chatter
    I know that may be a bit sick, given the man had testicular cancer, but it seems that his decision not to fight the US doping investigators and therefore be stripped of his seven Tour de France Golds is because he's a guilty as sin. The Guardian has a nice list of accusers. m.guardian.co.uk...
  19. Juggling too many balls

    Africa Twin
    It's the story of my life, I see something that most people would break or bin, and I decide it would be much better fixed. Because of this disorder, and because there are many things with two (and occasionally four) wheels that I like, I am surrounded by things that "will be fixed and working...
