  3. XR
    Hi guys I've not posted for ages, I've been a touch busy with other bikes/hobbies/diy and life. I've also not ridden my XR for some time due to pain in my right foot as I found kicking it over was far from comfortable, even with an enduro boot on. Today I go the results from the doctor...

    ‘Evening all. I have a seat which I believe is an RD04 which is surplus to my requirements. It came in a box-o-bits I got. It was covered in some black fabric, which looked awful but kept the seat underneath in very good nick. It looks like an original, and it is in what I’d consider a really...

    What type of coolant are you using, I don't know whether to use ethylene glycol silicate based or the later type O.A.T (organic antifreeze technology) does not contain silicate. Im'e not bothered about the antifreeze aspect as the bike (650) never sees frost but wondering about the...

    Summary: Changes to moped and motorcycle training to make sure newly-qualified riders are better prepared for riding on modern roads. Should motorcyclists be able to upgrade their licence to ride larger bikes by taking a training course, instead of having to take more tests ? Give your views...
  10. XR
    Hey guys Had my xr a while now, and previously had a bit of a mare with its well documented issues. Upon rejetting based on no snorkel and a uni filter, and some help from a member on here, I fitted 178/68. It still leaked when on its side, and still a sod to start etc. Reading that this...

    Hola, A friend of mine, based in Lithuania, has a line on steel cables that can be used to secure items to bikes. As far as I know, thickness can be 2, 3 4 or 6mm (possibly also other thicknesses) and the length is customisable. There'd be a loop at either end and it'd be shrouded in 2mm...

  19. For Sale / Wanted
    Dear All, I have upgraded communication system on the bikes, and am now working with bluetooth headsets. I have done this not because they are better than autocom, but because I share helmets across bikes, and the autocom system does not allow this easily....If I had one bike, I would still...
