    My CRF1000L is now out of warranty so kicking dealer servicing into touch :p Having just clocked 16000 miles a valve check was due (££££££££).

    Greetings fellow dommie enthusiasts. I'd be grateful for some expert input on this question. My '99 dommie has not been started for several months. There is ample oil in the engine, but the top oil tank is bone dry. (Oil check valve isn't working as it should?) Is it okay to start the bike...

    Hi, I've just won this ebay auction for a CT90 needing a bit of work. I'm after peoples thoughts on if they think it's a good deal, and anything I should check when I go to collect? It was a bit of a last minute impulse buy. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/372556173903 Thanks in advance, Rob

    Hi there folks, I have a 'R' reg XRV750. I've had various issues with the standard Honda fuel pump. I've recently fitted a brand new Honda fuel pump. My question is, when the engine runs, does the pump pulse or vibrate ALL the time? I start the engine, and sometimes it 'ticks', and sometime...

    Anyone taken the oil strainer out of the bottom of their frame? Tried removing it yesterday, so i could check it, and get frame ready for powder coat, but could not get it to undo. Tried interlocking two spanners to get a higher torque, but still no joy. Any tips on removal???

    While checking when things run out on the bikes and cars i noticed you can check the history of the MOT's back as far as 2006 and found in 2008 (before i owned it) my RD07 failed due to the headlight aim too low how petty is that, the place i take mine to would have adjusted that free of charge...

    Hi Im going through the motions to try and start my 750 AT motor. Its been sitting about 6 yrs some of the time with no oil. It turns over by hand no probs but i pulled the dipstick out to check the oil level after cranking it over with a battery and it was under pressure, lots of air came out...

    Hi all. Stripped and cleaned my carb and thought I’d check the jet sizes etc. On the slow jet was the number 55. Which I understand is quite large! However I cannot find any size on the main jet only the letters CBT ???? Is that just a model fitment number or do these letters correlate to a...

    Was doing a routine check and found that the front axle holder was broken and the nuts on the studs were so loose that they could come off by hand. Anyway as I do not have torque wrench I managed to snap 1 stud off and then was trying to put a temporary support plate which caused the other stud...

    Here’s one for ye, So I was cursing at 120kph and then the engine cut out, it was exactly like I hit the kill switch. The engine died instantly. I tough it was the CDI but there two of them and if you loose one you loose only one cylinder not two. Possibly both of the CDIs blew at the same...
