    Hi, I've got a 650xl which has been standing for around 5 years and I'm trying to get it running. It's done less then 3,000 miles from new. It would not start. I tried to drain the carbs. Green goo came out, so I removed the carbs and sprayed carb cleaner in everywhere I could until all ran...

  6. @ Front Axle clamp pinch studs

    Africa Twin
    As has been mentioned on here before, the studs in the righthand fork leg lower are not replaceable if you take everything that Honda say as the truth. After I had a new wheel built a few weeks ago I had a brainwave in that it'd be good idea to torque up the axle clamp plate pinch bolts...

    Clothing

  13. xl nx650 forks legs. Interchangeable?

    XL
    Are the xl600 and nx650 fork legs (bottoms) interchangeable? Are the disc mounts the same? I prefer the front mudguard on the nx, but the xl600 forks are adjustable. I already have a pegaso 19" front wheel with bigger disc and custom adaptor. My 21" was dead. I also have SLR650 clocks and a huge...

  18. Will the front forks off an XR650 fit my AT?

    Africa Twin
    I know the stanchions are the same (41mm) but what about the business end? I would have to get the 320mm disc as there is only one caliper mount but would my wheel and speedo drive fit? The reason is that my forks bottoms are very corroded and while I could clean/fill (yes fill they are that...
