    So I just bought my first "proper" bike. 1998 AT RD07 with 44,000km on the clock. It's pretty mint and seems well maintained. Fires up immediately, idles good, pulls good, no dramas. Just that the vibrations are horrible above 4500rpm. On the highway I do not exceed 80kph for any length of...

    Hi I have a XRV RD04 1991. Reading all service manuals and visiting all websites in the world, don't clarify which needle jet holder goes where. One have 6 holes - one have 10 holes. My logic tells me, that the one with 10 holes is in carburettor 1, since its jetted a little larger than...

    Hi everyone. I have acquired a Honda CL400 and very pleased with it so far. There is hardly any info available on the web so at the moment I have no manual or even a handbook.

    Hi All, I have had a major issue with an XL500R and wonder if anyone can help with info. Trying to start it, the bike backfired and has blown the plastic top off the Keihin Carb.

    I have a strange problem. I was driving the bike in the City, stopped for 10 minutes and after then when I started the engine I realized only on cylinder is working. Took off the rear cylinder's spark cap, there was spark beetwen the engine and the cap, so it must be some kind of fuel problem...
