    The last owner bodged the connection to one of the CDI units (1st image) and it is starting to cause a problem, I might change the CDI and I would like to get some waterproof connectors like the original ones (2nd image), does anyone know what these are called or where I can buy them?

    I've recently purchased an rd03 which is in nice condition (67000kms in theory!), but it backfires when off the throttle - not badly, more a tinkling pop pop with the odd loud crack. I suspect this could be down to the Suzuki exhaust can that has been bodged on, but maybe it could be the sign...

    Has anyone ever made/bought/bodged a custom front fairing mount for the transalp 600? I am talking about the bit at the front to hold the nose cone and lights on! I am considering trying to make one out of aluminum

    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...

    The notorious connector block, little white thingy with three yellow wires coming from it, connected to the rectifier. It seems to be notorious for cooking itself. A while back I fitted three bladed conectors to replace the ones previously bodged on there, as a temporary fix. Mine became...

    Guys... dont have the money for a new sump guard for my 650....what i do have is a spare relatively scuffed original honda one.So I bodged it by bolting it under my proper honda sumpguard, so that effectively i have two layers of plastic instead of one. fits relatively well...and is nearly...

    Does anyone have something similar to this? I've had an MRA Vario in the past and wasn't convinced. Does anyone have a clip on 'flip' type thing that's cheap and worth having? Anyone bodged anything good? Pictures would be great. Cheers

    This cost next to nothing to make couple of brackets made from angled alloy and chopped the top of an old screen [/URL][/IMG]

    Hi all, I have a problem with the front pipe. It's rust in place, actually in the head. I've tried heat, WD & freeze spray from Maplins. It won't budge! Need to get them off to weld up a repair. I don't have the money for a new Motad system & can is not original, (bodged monster one I think) so...

    Hi there, One of my tripods which i have not used for some time has aluminium fixtures which are used to extend the legs and lock them in place. The powder coating has flaked off and the aluminum underneath has started corroding with a loose white gray powder on the surface. i have brushed...

    Hi all, I was fitting new plugs last week to my 97 RD07 and got a little spanner happy and decided the easiest way to do this would be to remove the tank and also remove the airfilter housing. Removed both, fitted the new plugs and then refitted the connection from the airfilter to the...

    Oh Dear! Went to change my reg/rec today to discover the previous owner of the zebra had done a bodge job and put a non-standard reg/rec on. Instead of being five connectors on the larger of the two connectors there were only four, so he had cut the connector off and wired four of the five...

    Sue's bike (CBF600) finally got it's restrictors off today so Doggy says "I'll test it for you!!" Off out in the country I went & gave it some right welly (as you do). Just on the way back and I go to knock it down a couple of gears to get round a tight left & nothing .......... no gear...

    I've just shelled out £220 for a BSM slip-on can for my TA 650, and the damn thing doesn't fit as well as it should. The collector pipe slips on to the collector box and bolts on to a bracket used by the original exhaust. The can itself bolts onto the collector pipe and should be fixed to...
