    Hi All, Just thought i'd introduce myself, currently own a BMW R1150GS, though looking at changing to a Africa Twin XRV 750, I've been hankering after one for a long time now, and have decided to sell my GS (or swap, if you see my thread) and hopefully get one, so beware there wil be plenty of...

    Hi there;couple of things (1) I'm changing the fork oil in my 99 FX650 Vigor. The tech data gives the quantity and level but no recommendation for the grade of oil. The bike is only used on the street, so any suggestions please? (2) Bit of a long shot this, but would anybody have an actual...

    Good evening I'm in the process of changing the front sprocket on my RD07a. I removed the sprocket cover and then the old sprocket. I was merrily cleaning all the old crud away before fitting the new one when this little fella dropped out. I have no idea where it goes so any help would be...

    Losing the will to live trying to find a relevant manual or wiring diagram for an RD08, problem I have is the neutral light comes on when holding the clutch in and goes out when released, and when using gearbox, neutral light comes on when changing gear up or down when dipping the clutch...

    My current sprocket setup is -1 front and +3 in the rear. I like this, but I'd like to get better mileage on the road and I want an OEM 16T front for reduced wear on the shaft. Thinking of changing my chain and go to just +1 in the rear or should I go with the stock 46 tooth rear sprocket?

    Hi, Please would somebody give me an advice on changing the exhaust downpipes? I'm always worried I may shear off the lugs that screw into the cylinder heads when I'm undoing the domed nuts holding the flanges. Also, is there a work around to not having the gasket between the downpipe and the...

    My 89 has RD04 H4 headlights in it. I'm thinking of changing out the bulbs for LED bulbs like these - https://www.cyclopsadventuresports.com/3800-Lumen-H4-LED-Headlight-bulb-_p_83.html I've read threads where people have used the cheap Chinese LED bulbs without problems. Anyone running them on...

    Hi I've just bought a Transalp 650 and it appears that the indicator relay needs changing. Can anyone tell me how much of the fairing do I need to remove to access it? The indicators are a come on randomly or when I rev the engine up and there is lots of clicking coming from the relay. Any...

    Any suggestions. I cannot find a download version. The Haynes is rubbish. It says changing clutch cable is in chapter 19. There are only 9 chapters!

    Hi guys, Just bought a 2001 Varadero 1000 which is an import from Europe, so my question is that I need a UK spec headlight and speedo, did Honda use a headlight from another bike on the Vardero or am I stuck with shelling big bucks out for a new one. If anyone can point me in the direction of...

  15. How to.....
    Hi, this may have been covered but I see on ebay that a company do a pretty decent inlay for the speedo/dials for the RD04 anyone ever split these dials open to replace them? Could really do with swapping the KPH to MPH and the dials are faded pretty badly. any advice would be greatly...

    Hi I've heard about the fuel pump issues and was wondering if it's worth changing to a facet or just getting a points repair kit. I'm current rebuilding my rd04 and want it to be reliable when finished. The pump was working fine when the bike last run. Cheers

    As I fitted a Wiseco hi-comp piston to my Dommie, and I'm considering exhaust options (XR headers, 2 into one, different silencers), I wondered about jetting, and also about 'Dave's mod' which I've seen mentioned a few times here but searches yield nothing. So, can anyone point me to 'Dave's...

    Hi Guys, As per the title how often do you guys check the mesh as shown here: the above pics are from yesterday, the one below is from shortly after purchasing the bike almost two years ago. Also while we are at it how often do you change the oil? I have been changing the oil every...

    Traditional mopeds are a part of motorcycle culture that is fast disappearing, rendered obsolete by changing laws and now kept alive mainly by the hard work of dedicated fans. The term ‘moped’ is now often used interchangeably with sub-50cc scooters, but the true original mopeds were quite...
