buggery

  1. Main output shaft bearing - worn to buggery.

    Mechanical Advice
    I've just bought the bike (swapping to an XRV750 RD07 from an RD03) for my overland trip to SE Asia. Unfortunately I've found a significant oil leak which seems to stem from a worn main output shaft bearing. There's significant radial play and it almost certainly requires replacement. While...
  2. Sean's crossrunner test...

    Crossrunner / Crosstourer
    Only had it for two and a half hours, so a fairly brief ride... went from Hastings down to rye, some good twisty roads with a couple of good straights..... initial thoughts, riding postition was quite sporty on the legs yet quite upright but overall a really good position (explained later).. a...
  3. today I've mostly been playing on this.....

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Kawasaki Uk have lent SERV this bike for evaluation, I have it for the next 3 days and today have been "playing" around Sussex and Kent, what a superb bit of kit. goes like buggery and handles really well for its size (and its squared off tyres) and the engine is outrageous, its like an upright...
  4. Rusty silencer

    Transalp
    Zorst has gone. Fuel has supplied the replacement (plus Kendal Mint Cake - yum!) so I went to have a look at the situation yesterday. I have two questions: firstly, how concerned should I be about the condition of the output pipe from the collector box? The silencer and securing collar are...
  5. AT Value, aka "what's mine worth?"

    Africa Twin
    Hello all, Haven't been around lately (been too busy, alas) so I thought I would pop in with one of those annoying open-ended questions with no real answer. Oh Joy! ( PS - I think this is the right place, as it isn't an actual "for sale" ad or anything, but if the admins think it should be...
  6. For Sale: Breaking 96 XR250L

    For Sale / Wanted
    First of all I'm brand new to the forum (and the whole motor bike scene) so forgive me if I forget any info. Right, after my friend had an accident on his 96 XR250L he took it back to his house and let it sit in his garden under a cover for 6 months up until last week when I bought it off of...
  7. The word Bugger

    Chatter
    One cannot help but notice the severe over use of the term Bugger, Buggered and Buggery on this forum. This word is a mild expletive imported from an era during which the world was a more innocent place and the implication of the use of the word Bugger was not as well understood. Of course...
  8. Well that was expensive :-(

    Chatter
    Paintballing was quite a larf, but bloody costly :shock: Forgot any advise given and went in Gunho!! These people are very good at getting you fired up and shooting at will, and I must have been a God send. One game, I was a medic and couldn't be 'killed' but I had to touch any of my team that...
  9. OK, I give in, it needs a clutch.

    Africa Twin
    After a few months of trying to adjust the last dying gasps out of my clutch I think it's finally fecked. Was fine when I put it away the other night. It was slipping like buggery this morning though. Still, 70 odd thousand miles on what I believe is the original standard clutch isn't too bad...
