  5. Oil filter difference?

    Transalp
    I think I know the answer to this but the place I ordered my filter from are being quite insistent that the filter for the 2007 xl650 is different from the one used for the 2001-2006 650. I'm pretty sure all the 650 filters will be the same but he reckons I need a 204 not a 303. The 204 happens...

    Hi guys, I'm in the process of fixing one of the threads on my spare cylinder/barrell for my '85 XR250. The thread on the left "rotor side" is stripped. I have some 10x1.25 helicoils which I believe are correct but I'm not sure what size/type of tap I need to cut the new thread and what size...
  11. Chain tool confusion...

    Bought this chain tool, which I understand is a copy of the DID tool but a fraction of the price, but it didn't come with any instructions. I'm probably being a bit dim but can anyone enlighten me on the correct usage. Three major parts, the pin slots into the end of the threaded press, the...
