    For my Pyrenees ride this year I've given the beast a good makeover.
  2. Dominator / FMX
    I finally got my Flatside sorted and fitted onto my scrambler with the help of Nick from Brummingham ,our resident flatside guru.:thumbup: Now it sounds like a beast that just wants to eat small children and scare old ladies.:D:D:D I havnt been for a test ride yet as the foot pegs are getting...
  3. Dominator / FMX
    Probably something to do with how I put the bike back together after changing the front pads and disc a few weeks ago although no signs of any issued before today. Speedo seems to be going up the wall. Needle jumping about a lot! Is this just going to be the able? Wondering if this is a fault...
  4. Transalp
    After 3 months with my 700 TA it has now departed for pastures new. I never really gelled with it the way I did with my previous 650s - it is, as many have observed, a different beast apparently aimed at a different market. For a while I was intending to change it for another 650 but I got...
  5. Varadero
    Hi, Quite new to the Varo so just a precaution. Could I charge the battery on the bike all connected or should I disconnect it (using Ctek charger). Does removing the battery lead to resetting any electronic stuff that needs to be adjusted afterwards or similar issue ? Probably basic questions...
  6. I'd like to introduce myself....................
    Hi, just joined seeking some info for an informed choice of cheap trailies to buy for the impending onslaught of winter as the Pan is a big beast to negotiate on icy roads. I started off my bike history some 20 odd years ago on an XT125 but that was the only trailie I have ever had. Spend the...

    I had the pleasure of going over to a mates place on friday to help him work on a Vincent Comet he is working on. He is sorting out some starting problems and his missus has just re-wired it. When thats done, the owner is bringing over a Vincent Black Shadow for the same TLC. I am going back...
  8. Dominator / FMX
    Greetings all. Being a Dommie newbie, I thought I would join this forum and ask at least one daft laddie question, maybe two? 1. Oil is clearly critical to looming after the beast. How often to change the oil and filter? 2. How do I check the oil level? There's no windae in the...
  9. Africa Twin
    Bump Starting that is...... I've never needed to bumpstart the beast but I've tried it a couple of times to see how easy/hard it was. I found it impossible. I once rolled down a hill with it and tried but also no luck. One day I might have to. Has anyone done this successfully?

    Met up with Nibby from ABR for a couple hours practice for the upcoming BBRC rally. Went to practice drifting but side tracked into some mud........and I got stuck and it took the 2 of us 40 mins to free the beast. I have smelt of bog all day. The missus aint happy. Esspecially as my bike...
