chugging

  1. Africa Twin
    Morning, I was taking my bike for a service yesterday, as a relatively new owner I was taking it in to get the fluids done, spark plugs etc along with new sprockets and a chain. On the way down the road I came off a RTB and gave her a twist of the wrist, it started chugging and choking at...
  2. Dominator / FMX
    Hi Just wondering if you guys have come across this and found the fault. Whilst riding and just chugging along, that's just off throttle in the wrong gear, there's a slow rattle from the front, could be under the tank area, like a loose plate bouncing about. I've checked the exhaust guard and...

    Not long now, about four weeks and will be taking the @ two up with luggage through Sweden past the polar circle to Jokkmokk in Lappland and on to Kiruna then turn left to Norway and Narvik then down to Bodö and east over to the swedish east coast then south homeward bound. Worked out a rough...

    What's the most you've been able to squeeze into a 650 fuel tank ? I've managed to get more than the 19.3 litres in the past that the tank is supposed hold but today whilst chugging on fumes I put 20 litres in at a Shell station, the cashier seemed a bit upset when I suggested their pumps...
  5. Dominator / FMX
    On the last mile of a three hour journey on my new dominator, she went from her usual sound of a 650 single to a very strange low chopping sound. When I twist the throttle there is also a chugging sound coming from the engine? A mate at work said its the exhaust leaking but I cant see anything...

    I know the subject of fuel pumps has been done to death on this site but I do need to ask a question. Can an orginal Honda fulel pump be 'on it's way out' or do they just pack up and the bike stops? I had been out for a ride today, an hour over to mates riding quite hard round the back roads...
  7. Transalp
    Hi all, can anyone shed any light on this conundrum: I cahnged the air filter, oil filter and oil on Sunday and cleaned the muck off the centre and side stands. I started the bike to begin the day's work to warm the oil for 3/4 minutes when it started chugging as though thge choke was still...
  8. Transalp
    Hi all, just picked up a new XL700 'alp to replace my previous 'collection' of bikes as I'm busy with my family more these days and just wanted one bike to take care of everything! I just had the NT700 Deauville for just over a year and you might think that's the ultimate do it all bike but...

    As above really - turned the bike onto full right lock to park it up and the tickover went from 1000 ish down to about 600 like it had just been started. There was a very strong petrol smell while it was 'chugging'. Educated guess is it's the choke mechanism but I guess it could be a dodgy...
  12. Meet Ups / Rideouts
    I mentioned this one to Dave S at the end of last year (was actually in Weston-S-M for a subdued xmas, as dad was having an op.- all went ok) - and was advised to post here. Every year in Norway, the Norwegian OTC (Offroad Touring Club) host a ride-out called "Bukkerittet". I have not...
