    I bought and rode home 130 miles this xrv750 it ran great, if anything it's a little over fuelling as it's popping when you ease off the throttle, when I picked up it had very little fuel in as I just manage to get to the garage as I had to switch over to the reserve, When I got home...

    I knew it wasn't right. After stripping it down it appears some has used a dremmel to clean it out, lots of corrosion too.:( So, I need a new carburetor but it's proving difficult to find. Any help is much appreciated.

    Hi. I bought a 2002 Honda fx650 vigor. The piston was knackered. So I got a new barrel and piston (2nd hand) and removed all the old piston from the engine. It has 75-80psi on compression. And the valves have been set to 10mm? What ever it is in the Haynes manual. It semi fires. Goes to around...

    Quick question. Has anyone ever re-jetted their bike while the carb is still on the bike? I've got a adjustable Super trap exhaust on my Dommie and I know I can tune to match the carb with that, but I've found a setting that I love the sound of. Not too loud but enough of barrrrrp. So I...

    Greetings chaps. I have just spent four days cleaning my sons tank of 30 yrs of gunge to get it ready for him for summer. After being satisfied that the tank was ok I thought I would rinse it out to get it ready for the tank sealant that I am going to give my own projects tank. When I was...

    My most recently acquired SLR650 had a tickover problem and tickover has been discussed on this forum of late so I thought I'd share what I've learned. The bike came to me running, but with a knackered sounding starter motor, despite only 17K on the clocks (believed genuine). The bike would not...

    Started the bike up after not using it for a few days and noticed a fuel leak on the left hand side. Had to use the choke as normal and probably flooded it in the process. At first it dripped enough to reach the floor but after a couple of mins it stopped, and then ran the bike for 15 mins...

    Hi All, Ever since I bought it, my RD07 has always had a jerky power delivery at light throttle loadings, such as at 30km/h in 3rd gear on a flat road. At first I thought it was the chain and sprockets, as they were well worn, but replacing them made only a slight improvement. The bike has now...

    Took a ride west to Spean Bridge with eldest son yesterday, Sunday 9th November 2014, to pay our respects at the Commando Memorial. The scenic route via Daviot and Fort Augustus was taken, to miss any lingering tourists that might still be about on the main Loch Ness road. The temperature sat at...

    Hi fellow SLR/Dom/FMX fans. I'm in need of some collective wisdom. Up until relatively recently the SLR has been going like a good-un. However it now keeps missing, not misfiring but more stuttering/holding back intermittently as if there's water/dirt in the bowl. It happens in all the gears and...

    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...
