    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...

    Oh yes. Deano's new shiney Africa Twin DCT would not start with a flat battery and you cant bump them (I think??) so the jump leads out and my old AT saved the day! :thumb:

    I have a 1988 transalp , I've owned it about a year and there's always been a quite loud clunking at the front end when I hit a pothole or speed bump, or even just sit and bounce the front suspension. I recently renewed all the fork internals but that hasn't helped the clunking at all. Looking...

    I have a strange noise with my 2008 Varadero XL1000. Usually (but nothing consistent) when I come to a stop I will hear a noise just before I come to a complete stop. Sounds like maybe a loose clutch lever, or maybe a shifter lever, or maybe a relay click sound or maybe something hitting the...

    Hi there, Yesterday I received my new bike - 1998 Honda XR400r and it looks awesome, the only problem is I cant seem to kick start it. I've looked at videos online and spoken to people in the know and they say there is a 'knack' to starting these bikes however I cant seem to get it after many...

    Bump Starting that is...... I've never needed to bumpstart the beast but I've tried it a couple of times to see how easy/hard it was. I found it impossible. I once rolled down a hill with it and tried but also no luck. One day I might have to. Has anyone done this successfully?

    As some might remember a had a bump with a Mercedes last Noverber "she came of worse". Anyhow at the time a guy saw the whole thing , she did not use her mirror or indicate as it was a last second manoeuvre to get to a short cut to the shop and she did not want to wait. This so called witness...
  19. Africa Twin
    Hi guys, the @ has just broken down and when I try to bump start there is nothing coming from the engine. An I correct in thinking there is no compression and if so what do you think has happened?
