  4. XL125K gearbox dilemma

    Hi folks. I've had to strip down my engine to the bare bones to clean out the remains of a piston. I took out the gearshift shaft and cleaned up the three forks paying careful attention to what sequence they were on the shaft. What I didn't do was to notice which way round they go :(. The...

  9. Starter solenoid wiring

    Africa Twin
    Hullo! Been a fanny again. :) My rd04 had the usual melted red connector on top of the solenoid. I should've taken a photo before hand but.....I had to destroy the connector to get the 4 wires out. While I was in the process of being extra careful to hold the wires as they came out, I fumbled...

  13. Brake calipers, replacement items, not OEM but whatever I can get .....

    Africa Twin
    Am looking at getting a set of calipers to replace the OEM items. Maybe off a bandit or VFR (due to quantity available etc) but am not sure if I need to be careful of spacing to the spokes, and the master cylinder ratio etc 13mm/12mm etc. Anybody done this? Reason is that even to get my OEM...
  14. Which Hunt........

    So the story that's all over the news is the BBC which, as far as I can see, is guilty of being too careful ( plus an inability to explain it), followed by behaving in a seriously unsubtle way but without naming any of the senior politicians on the web. This organisation is being judged and...

    Dear oh dear. Seven dead. It stands to reason that if people were maintaining stopping distances appropriate to the conditions it couldn't have happened. It's foggy here this morning so be careful out there and take another ten minutes.
  19. Oh Deer!!

    Covered recently by Lowflyer, this is another warning about the dangers of riding on roads near deer, particularly at this time of year. At the weekend, I came across 8 of them in a lane near my sisters. Luckily it's a 10mph limit, but the potential is there for an accident, as they just dash...
