My choke won't stay open on my bike. I can
Pull it open revs pick up all perfect but it seems
Like there is a bit of force pulling the lever back closed?
Can't seem to work it out. Has anyone come across
Is there anything to adjust?
Your wisdom would be much appreciated. Cheers...
Anyone recognise this sad looking black 650 TA in E1 ?
Spotted the post in the facebook closed group 'The UK Motorcycle Theft Protest.'
Ignition in the locked position, handlebars in the busted steering lock position ... GRRR !
Hi to all!
Have been toying with the idea of swapping my 650 with a 2015 NC750X. It's new but it's not the latest model.
My main concern is the EFI... what's it like on low throttle openings? I've also heard many bikers complain that throttle may be snatchy / jerky when opening from closed...
Does anyone out there know if Belay's of Twickenham became or was sold to another Honda Dealer? I have a service booklet that is stamped by the dealership and I'm trying to get some additional information. I called Honda UK this AM but they couldn't tell me if another dealership bought them...

Selling my (superb condition) FJR. Bought it on 8K its now done almost 25K
I bought it mainly for the work run which was a seventy mile road trip every day. Retired now and don't need her, as I have my @T to ride these days.
I've enclosed a few pictures for you to get an Idea of her condition...
...when you have an XL.
Took the scenic route back after the 'milk run', and despite the clear message of 'don't bother', I did. Very satisfying, wet boots not dampening the enjoyment.
Can't wait to get this thing fettled and registered properly, then it's of to Achill Island to do the...
Hi guys, has any one got any suggestions for handguards for the 650? I was looking at BarkBusters but they're pricey albeit very good. There's got to be a cheaper enclosed guard, ideally nice and wide to deflect the wind but with a reinforcement not just plastic. Will any other brands fit the...
The throttle grip won't return to closed position as it should. I used some kind of silicone based grease (same grease I used to the brakes) and I just want to know what is your recommendation. I'm not sure that is the problem, but I have to remove it anyway to find the problem and I would use...
Only looking for reassurance really. Just got a 2005 TA, and there seems to be a bit of a mechanical ' whine ' on closed throttle/engine braking. Pretty sure it's normal, but my last bike was loud and I never heard all the engine noises, so didn't worry.
Cheers in advance peeps !!
Just noticed one of the local Honda dealers has closed its doors. Pidcocks Honda have relinquished their Honda dealership.
The premises remain and they have moved their Triumph dealership there.
Oh well, thats where I used to go for bits etc.
Heine Gericke UK in administration as of yesterday. Maybe the flood of 'special offer' emails I get from them will subside now...
Not closed yet, still being run by administrators but I guess there will be cuts as a minimum, shame for the staff, I know how it feels...
Well after an hour of wading through my list of needed parts and amassing an expensive shopping cart of goodies, I took a break and went for coffee - only to arrive back at my computer to see the basket was empty! Mutter, mutter, mutter......
Not sure why CMS would limit the basket like this...
I have some mugs to clear now that the shop is closed.
£3.50 posted to clear.
