blowing

  1. Dominator / FMX
    One of my silencers is blowing, actually the pipe work just behind the join to the right-hand can. So if any of you Dommie choppers/street trackers / customisers is long on a standard silencer or two - talk to me. 2000 RD08 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi all, my XL250S has started blowing the dip filament as soon as it is turned on. The main beam is fine with no issues. When I checked with a multimeter I found the white wire has continuity to earth when the lights are switched on. Has anyone any ideas what might be causing it or what to...

    Hi, So today i installed an aftermarket exhaust onto my duke, and after getting it all setup with some exhaust paste too applied to the inside of the linking pipe and the pipe that connects to the slip on exhaust, i noticed that there is a small blow coming from the clamps, on the linking pipe...

    My exhaust wasn't blowing right so I toke it off to take a look for holes etc, what I found looked to be beyond regular repair. The internal pipe at the start of the muffler has broken free from its self completely. It's hard to describe so I will post a video showing the damage. Externally...

    Hi AT friends, need some expert advise as I'm a shitty mechanic myself :) After more than 60.000 km my RD07 from 1996 has made it from Denmark to Bali on my way to Australia. It has gone a bit more than 100.000 km in total, and is not running well now. It is burning a lot of oil (need to top...

    Jesus wept, talk about not seeing the wood for the trees..... I've been looking for a heated jacket type of thing & figured there must be a cheaper way than the ~£150 bespoke stuff. Take one of these; A few of these; Can you see where this is going..... End up with this; It works an...

    Evening, Let me first apologise, I am a complete mechanical novice, but keen and willing to learn. So here is my query... This evening when out starting my bikes getting them nicely warmed up and the oil moving about as I do every clatter of days I noticed the floor wet under the AT - horrid...
  8. Dominator / FMX
    I cannot get my dominator engine to tick over at all,it runs ok when started on the choke and if I increase the idle speed screw but as soon as I try to lower the idle it tries to stall and spits back in the air cleaner then stops with a clank noise which I assume is the auto decompressor. I am...

    Hey, The troubles (or at least what seems to be like one) after my Reg/Rec cooked itself and my battery seem to continue. After I changed the RR, fuel pump for Facet one (and now try to fix the lazy tacho), it looks to me as if also the engine is now much hotter than before. I compare...

    My exhaust is blowing where the rear header pipes enters the 2 into 1 bit :( There's a clamp that has rusted and broken, and under it a crumbling graphite gasket. Now obviously there's no point in having the gasket slipped onto a header piple with a bracket directly over it. The pipe and...

    Hi all Here's a little story: A while ago, after I had had the bike for a little while, I thought about moving the position of my gearchange lever, however, it wouldn't come all the way off the spline. It appeared to be fouled by the footpeg mount itself. Now I've had the chance to strip the...

    Had the exhaust off to replace the clutch some time ago & now the bottom two gaskets are blowing. It has a Remus end can on so the question is will the downpipes be oem or are they different to fit the end can? Had an oem exhaust replacement gasket with the clutch kit which was way too big..

    (Cross posted on advrider) Anyone care to express an opinion as to what's going on with the battery compartment here? It's real messy with some weirdly placed fuses. Figured I'd post here before start tinkering and blowing stuff up.
  14. Dominator / FMX
    Hi, I have a wiring fault that keeps blowing a fuse(Tail fuse) when I put the right hand signal on. I have disconnected the indicators but the fuse still blows. The strange thing is if I replace the fuse and don't put the indicators on, but use the starter motor the rear right indicator...
  15. Transalp
    Hi all, Needing you advice please - I have taken the end can off the Alp ( joins about 5 inchs after the before footpeg) as it was blowing from the join. Ordered an part from local dealer to seal it all up. Part is a graphite type ring that slips nicely over the original bit but as the Fuel end...

    Well it's been blowing really hard so far this morning and the rain is coming down heavier now. The worst of the weather is not expected here until late afternoon/early evening. Take it easy out there if your on the roads, especially if your on a bike!

    Anyone have any knowledge that aftermarket exhaust will fit on a 650 TA that has givi's finest wingrack fitted. stripped the exhaust off today as the tailpipe is blowing quite a lot at the usual bottom spot so Im in 2 minds. Either fanny it up ,have a couple of spot welds done ,get a new gasket...
