  1. SLR650 17" front wheel

    Dominator / FMX
    Hey all After about 3 years, I'm about to kick off the build of my SLR650 scrambler/tracker. I'm looking to get a 17" front wheel & am looking at fitting a 120/70/17 up front with 150/70/17 rear Continental TKC80's. Now after some research, I'm not sure if these will fit on the current wheel...
  2. Brake caliper piston question

    Transalp
    My "front-end" saga continues with the discovery of seized brake caliper pistons and brittle caliper piston seals (that have been in there since 2001) Having never done this before.....Is this piston good for re-use? It seems to slide in and out of the bore ok, but looks a bit pitted/scored?

  5. Running Temperature

    Africa Twin
    I'd be interested to know what average running temperature you guys have. I went for a 150 mile ride yesterday and the temp reached 107. The road conditions were dry, 19C and an average speed 80-90, continuous for 2hrs or so. The temp gauge showed two marks below red so nowhere near boiling but...

    Transalp
    Hi,Can anyone recommend a good foot stand extension plate for the XL700?I've had a Cameltoe fitted for a couple of year and although it looked good I was not impressed with the way it bent with use and the bolts were continually working loose. So loose in fact that it now lies somewhere along...

    How to.....
    Any opinions yet for best road only tyres for the CRF 1000? I was thinking of Conti Trail Attack or Road Attack, which worked well on my BMW, but that did not have a 21 inch front wheel.

    Africa Twin
    Hello. I am writing to learn if any XRV750 owners may have learned of premature countershaft or output shaft wearing and continued to ride while monitoring the wear rate. The first image reflects approximately a 30-40% reduction in the width of the splines. Also, please note the condition of...

    XL
    I am currently restoring a 1980 xl185 and have managed to get a voltage at the input to the coil. I have connected my multimeter to the spade connector from the CDI and the needle bounces about to a maximum of 5v when the bike is kicked over. I guess this is what I should be seeing? I have no...

  17. Transalp 600 smaller fuel tank?

    Transalp
    Hello, I recently bought a 1997 Transalp XL 600 V. Today I ran out of gas after ~280 km (173 mi), so I switched to reserve, and continued riding another 15 km (10 mi) before reaching a gas station. When I stopped, I switched back on to the main fuel tank, and started refueling. I was surprised...

    Having recently replaced the Bridgy BT45 tyres on my Dommie with a more dirt-friendly Conti Escape, I took a detour off road today. Nothing strenuous, I don't have the skills for it, just some marked Byways around Hertfordshire. Good fun, and a useful escape route if I'm ever a fugitive on the...
