    I would like to replace my coolant hoses on my RD03. Honda parts are NLA. I was reviewing threads about the Samco or other aftermarket hoses and found threads that stated that some hoses were incorrectly sized. Those hose kits are pretty dear. Can't see paying that much for parts that are...

    Discreetly watch second bike TA 650 going though its MOT and I know that chain brings out worst of tester's OCD as it was marked as loose in advisory last year. I know it's in perfect condition and correctly tensioned but for him it's a fail for too slack. So he kindly gets the tools out and...

    How easy is it to take the front forks off to replace the gaiters- mine are in a sorry state. It's not so much the taking off as putting back correctly so as not to muff up the handling?

The 'explosions', 'bangs', 'pressure waves',... do not occure when I'm throttleling or in a regime, but are more frequent and louder/harder when I have my choke...

    Well, I've given up searching for a ready made PDF copy of the XL700 Owners Manual. Having been made redundant recently and with a bit of spare time on my hands I have scanned in the English version of my manual as jpegs. I've then inserted the lot into a Powerpoint slide presentation and then...

    One of my front discs is warped as a result of the pad spring being incorrectly fitted in the caliper prior to my ownership and causing the brake to bind. Does anyone know whether all 650 front discs are the same, or whether they are different for later (2004 onwards) bikes? Some sources sell...

    Heads up regarding Slinky Cables currently being touted by Wemoto. I bought a replacement throttle cable (pull) for my XL600R. It's 50mm too short compared to the standard Honda item which is now out of stock. I don't know if all these cables come up short or even if this is a one off but do...

    Hi all According to the Honda Shop Manual the brake caliper mounting bolts (part 22 in the below picture) have to be replaced before reassembly. Anyone knows why this is the case? Personally I can think of only two reasons: 1) Honda want's to make sure the bolts are equipped with the correct...
