    Hi I have got most things working following my rebuild. The only niggling thing I seem to be left with is that the engine will turn over and start when the start button switch is in the off position as well as the on position. I must have a wire crossed over somewhere, but I have checked...

    Hi all, just got my AT delivered and noticed that the push button for the main/dip beam sticks in, have any of you had this? Is there an easy fix or is it a new switch, I tried a spray of penetration fluid but made no difference Thanks in advance JTP

    Hi My 87 TA has developed a problem when trying to start. Basically when you press the start button, there is a 'pop' and sometimes a small puff of smoke near the starter solenoid area. This in turn seems to discharge the battery. I have replaced the solenoid but its still doing it. I have the...

    The clock set button on my XL1000va-5 has 'stuck in' and I am unable to reset the time. Does anybody know if and how it can be repaired?

    Bidding stopped at £1650 on fleabay I stumped up £1850 at 46k miles. Every woman I know has laughed at the photo's and mentioned either Barbie or Jem and The Hologrammes. They are mostly mid 30's. it is 'Bold' but I quite like it. It seems sound, runs perfectly, starts on the button, handles...

    Keyless ignition, how to do it . . . Thought I'd offer an idea that I've used on my dommie for the last year and I really like it. Keyless RFID ignition. It cost me less than £50 to do and has been utterly reliable in daily use. After losing my key, I decided to ditch the key operated ignition...

    I am having trouble dipping the mainbeam. The switch only works if I press and hold the button very hard for a couple of seconds, sometimes repeatedly. And by the then need is usually passed anyway! It works spot on going back to mainbeam. I'm not very confident on LX. Any advice on dismantling...

    Hi, Think my starter motor has died. Battery & relay are both new and current getting to the motor terminal when pressing the starter button on the handlebars. Removed the starter reduction gearbox cover and the grease is completely emulsified. Has anybody got a motor they could part with, or...

    Hi, Thought I'd posted this - must have pressed the wrong button. Got my new purchase home, 2000 XR400RY. Chuffed to bits. I notice the baffle has been removed. My local MOT shop may have a problem with that. Does anyone have a OEM spare baffle they could sell me, or a spare silencer OEM...

    Guaranteed to round off the allen key hole. it first twisted the allen key so I bought a 3/8' drive hex bit, which rounded of the allen key hole. Not one of Mr Honda's greatest design features. Has anybody replaced these with a hex head sprocket bolt from another bike?

    Hi All I have just put my RD04 back together, all i changed is i fitted a MOSFET R&R and now it will not start. There are lights on the dash- but the starter motor button does nothing, it seems completely dead, i am stripping it back to try and understand if i have missed something- the dash...

    Was having a problem earlier with my start button. And to make a bit of room to get at the two screws underneath I opened up the throttle assembly. The prob is that now that I want to put it back together I can't remember how it came off...:( The two throttle cables come up into the lower...
