bodge

  1. Transalp
    I've just had to have my XL700 Transalp in for a service. They've informed me that the main stand is knocking against the frame and the cat because it is missing a "bump stop". Must admit that I recall it banging when you put it up but think it has done that since the day I bought it. Could...

    I thought I would have a go at this bodging melarky. I bodged up a couple exhaust brackets out of an old road sign that I found ,(honest occifer) so I could see how my exhaust looks on my project bike. :clown::clown::clown: I took a 40mm strip of 3mm aluminium and used a socket , a hammer and my...

    Anyone happen to know if the RD03 rack would fit an RD04? It (the RD03 rack) looks a lot more utilitarian to me. I've no access to lathes or anything fancy so anything but the very simplest bodge is beyond me - ideally it'd fit right on... :)

    Anyone know of a good place to have my tank repaired in or around London? It only had the smallest of leaks which I think was on the seam, I've since used a tank sealant that I haven't tried yet but as I've now stripped the whole bike back to a frame it seems a little bit of a bodge to not have...

    Very simple this one. I finally got annoyed enough at the bolts sticking into my panniers to do something about them. This is what Touratech intended (example pic, not mine): Decided to turn things around, put the sticky out bits on the outside: Giving a nice clean surface inside the...

    I am having great fun at the moment starting the Domi as i have a broken plastic nut that connects the choke cable to the carb. i have seen a new plunger and nut on the web for 38 euro but dont really want to pay that sort of money for a plastic nut. Is any one out there breaking a domi prepared...

    Hi guys! Some info/wisdom needed please. I found these guards: Throttle Spec Ltd ZETA RACING HANDGUARD STRAIGHT I really like the old mouse ears for their wind blocking ability and being a stingy bugger my plan is as follows: Fit the zeta guards, chop off the original trannie guards and...

    A few weeks ago Lidl were selling an arc weldeing kit for £39.99. I've wanted to have a go at welding for ages so I took the plunge and bought one. It came with everything necessary to start welding except, strangely, the welding rods :confused:. Anyway, I went to Halfords and picked some up for...

    2nd ride report of the week! had a quick run out from the outlaws (Louhans) to Chalon sur Saone to pick up some bits for father in law's new laptop. At least it should have been a quick run...Decided to go the back way down to the Saone & follow the river into town, the weather was superbe...

    I had a wire break on the plug for the rear light of my TA. Any of you with the 650 will know it has a plug into the bulb holder. So I bought a new bulb holder from David Silvers and cut all the plastic from around the pins. I then soldered wires onto the pins, the only colour I could not get...

    However, this bodge is for my Ural. One of the many trinkets I hoped to acquire/make for my Ural in order to trip prep it for 2009, was a barcket of sorts for my folding trenching tool, to dig us out of treacherous bogs! So I set to work with 5mm x 30mm steel flat bar, cutting gringing and...
