beat

  1. Africa Twin
    My 1994 RD07A is intermittently missing a beat at idle? It does need some carb work and is idleing a little high. But every once in a while it seems to have a little hiccup. There is a mechanical “click” sound then a miss in the RPMs. It’s just for an instant, then returns to normal. This...

    Fancy a ride Mongolia to UK? UK registered 1990 RD04 92,000 km in great condition. I have just finished London to Ulaanbaator and have decided to sell the bike here in UB rather than ship. The bike didn't miss a beat, except for a regulator in Poland. It comes with a very long list of spares...

    Some dick in an Audi reg No: KP57BMV decided that the 75mph in the outside lane of the A34 following the same speed traffic in front of me in the rain wasn't fast enough for him. He was right up my arse, then undertook me with literally a foot to spare, pulled in front and then slammed his...
  9. Dominator / FMX
    I have taken the head off my dommie engine and removed the four bolts that hold the cylinder in place, I had to use an impact driver on one of them as the bolt head was rounded off. I have removed the two 8mm nuts but the barrel wont budge. Is there any nut between the starter motor housing and...

    Went to see my mate for a ride today, he`s got a Hyabusa and I thought I`d be a bit out of my depth... oh no I wasn`t! Ok so he destroyed me on the straights but the road was mostly really twisty with some tight bends and some nice sweepers, I mullered him!! He couldn`t believe how fast the @...
  14. Transalp
    Hi all, After having a sub chop and drilling some (8x10mm) holes in the airbox lid i was worried about the bike running lean, a mechanic turned the pilot screws by 1/4 to richen up the bottom end, i'm not sure if this is coincidental but i decided to turn the screws back by half of what he...

    Well, I have two weeks holiday to use up before April so I have booked 2-19 March. I plan to use at least 4 days of that away on the bike somewhere. Possibly around Wales where I can get a bit of hill walking in too. I'm pretty flexible within those dates if anyone fancies it. Being a bit...
