    There and back again A quote from Lord of the rings, the film being made on location in New Zealand. I needed some distraction over xmas new year and wanting to get away I couldn't get any further than NZ. I chose the right place to get distracted. Many say the best parts of Europe are mirrored...

    As many of you may be aware, I have a fetish about filing & bending alloy. Here is my latest effort . . . My latest ride came with a manufacturers sump guard, but I felt it failed to protect certain parts of the engine . . . so I thought I’d knock one up myself . . . . . Start with some...

    Hi to everyone at the forum, I'm a new member and a new AT owner. I's a black 2000 RD07a, practically mint with just 17000 km on the clock... I know, I was lucky. I come from a fairly long line of bikes, and wanted to try the "big enduro experience" from the... beginning (considering the AT an...

    So I own a beautiful 1993 XRV750P. Here she is last summer: This model has the incandescent reflectors which I have modded with H4 bulbs, and to be quite honest the light output leaves quite a lot to be desired. The problem lies in the bulb configuration -- the bulb is either too long or...

    Although I love riding the XR and the little spin that I've had on the DRZ, the one thing that I've missed is being able to see what's coming up behind me on the road when going to and from the trails. This can be a particular PITA while wearing goggles as it gives you, for want of a better...

    Hi, I have had a problem with my bike for a while now, where I cannot drive any distance over about 20km. It starts to shake, as if there is little or no fuel. I have upgraded the fuel pump to a facet, replaced the fuel filter and the problem remained. Then I thought I should check the...

    My trip meter is acting a little weird as of lately. I could not pin point it, but this morning i discovered that It would only reboot with my dual beam HID kit on, when I start the bike. If they are off, it holds time and has no problem. I doubt its a power thing, but what are the ods of the...

    New... expensive... Not so new... unusual... Actually, it's a Harley Davidson; I kid you not. Also expensive... Two more KTMs and my Vara... They disappear into the undergrowth: After a tricky descent we stop for a wee break. Wee as in brief, ok? DaveS... Fletch...

    just read on another motorcycle based website that if you disconnect your earth terminal from the battery and then connect a multimeter to the battery earth and the other lead to the earth terminal, then the reading should be zero and any other reading shows that something is creating a constant...

    Looking for a set of carburators that go on a 98 Africa Twin 750 - air scew sorta fused to the al body and can't be adjusted creating a lot of popping and really poor performance. Any advise, leads and/or direction would be greatly appreciated Thanks in advance, Frank
  15. Chatter
    Hot on the heels of Ireland's pointless, stupid and patronising idea of the introduction of mandatory full sleeve dayglo jackets for motorcyclists, the French are joining the (stupid) party too, apparently. Got this from the Visordown forum - "The French Gov has finally confirmed how it will...
  16. Mechanical Advice
    Hoping some smart mechanically minded people can help. As many will be aware my daughter was brought a Malaguti Grizzly 12 by Santa. We used it for a few miles before it broke down. On inspection it appears the crankshaft has broke. But I need guidance in what to do next. So I'll post a few...
  17. Transalp
    I'm creating a new post for this, as it seems to be an issue on it's own. It's taken from the thread called "noise" I have narrowed it down a bit more: Ticking/clicking/rattling is somewhat hollow, more like a higher pitched dakadakadakadaka or drrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr It only happens between...

    I would like to create some gpx files that other members can use/download. Short of creating and then emailing it to people is there a good easy to use file sharing system that anyone can recommend ???????????????????????????????? Or is there a way of having the file on this site ...

    I have been in contact with Alex at heavy duties in Romania since September, about the possibility of creating a one off pannier rack for my RD03 (hepco & becker are a whopping 250 quid and no other racks are readily available). Since the snow has cleared up a bit over there Alex has got his...
  20. Helmets
    As Derek Jameson might say, 'Is it me!' I would like a helmet where the visor, when lifted, goes into the helmet or a second skin. What do I mean? Well, any of you who ride at night and in the rain surely must suffer when the rain goes down in the inside of the visor and then car headlights hit...
