    Hi folks, my 1989 transalp is clunking like mad when I ride over rough surfaces or speed bumps etc. I can't see anything obvious and just wandered if anyone has had similar problems or can offer some suggestions ? Cheers Baz

    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?

    On the good advice from Whealie, I eventually booked my two boys aged 12 and 9 on a day out at the above. Chris, I have but two words for you....THANK YOU!!!! What a brilliant afternoon. I was so impressed with both lads that I was almost in tears. Leonardo was given a 75cc Honda with...

    Wow ! This morning, there I was, at home in Floriana, 'enthroned,' hearing something coming ... hearing that evocative, it must be, distinctive sound of a Merlin engine passing, growling, echoing off...

    Hi chaps. Bought this air filter for my Dr AIR FILTER FOR SUZUKI DR350 1990-00 | eBay It says on the rubber part to oil before use. I thought you just needed to oil the foam filters? What oil should I use for this then? Also does the dr really need rim locks? I think they make tyre...

    HI What do you think of the new explorer, took one for a test ride for 2hrs, fantastic. :thumbup:Loads or torque in any gear. very smouth, the only issue i had was the fly by wire throttle. You have to be very light on hand when going over bumps, but over all the bike was great, When i started...

    My Rd07a has a problem which is starting to get a bit worse. When rolling off the throttle and back on it feels like there's no power there for a moment and at steady throttle it sometimes feels like it's surging (most noticeable in top gear) - this is all very subtle mind you, but I'm finding...
  12. Varadero
    :blob7: Hello and best wishes to all (really) big off-road bike fans. With your permission I'd like to use this thread to detail the slow and potentially painful process of managing to make a (half) decent off roader of the mighty Varadero, and how it, and I, fare on this journey of discovery...
  13. Africa Twin
    Would I be right in saying that I need to replace the telfon coated bush at the bottom of the slider as upto about 25mph the front end doesn't react to small lumps/bumps in the road surface? Recently changed the fork oil which did improve things.

    I have a 28 year old Mercedes Benz. It starts and runs perfectly, the cruise control and air-conditioning work with no faults, it costs pence to insure and copes with London's speed-bumps like nothing else. There is a sense of occasion every time you use it, other motorists are polite towards...

    A little while ago, a few of the boys suggested a 'lads' trip to Scotland to blow the cobwebs away, before the clocks go back & winter sets in.....
