    Strange one, when cruising home 30mph ish the bike seems to pulse like the throttle drops and then returns... I have a suspicion of the clutch plates/friction plates but wanted a second opinion Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Happily cruising at 75 today wondering how many rpms I'm doing. Haven't had a rev counter for a while and can't remember what it used to be, anyone know roughly how many rpms a RD03 would be doing at say 60, 70 and 80 in 5th? Cheers

    Will I lose many rpm's when cruising on freeways dropping down to a 47 tooth sprocket from a 49 on the bike . I've been looking on site and not finding much about rpm drop. I was hoping for a 45 tooth myself but cannot find one . Also will I need to shorten chain at all for those who have done...

    Hello lads. So today I found that my RD07 has a new trick up her sleeve. Cruising to a stop in first gear and then wanting to tap up into neutral is impossible. The gearlever feels well and truly welded into first gear. Cut the engine and she slides into N like butter. Am I missing something...
  6. Varadero
    Hi, I'm attracted to the Varadero as my Falco is just too uncomfortable and the Vara fairing seems to allow 90-100 mph cruising in comfort. My concern is that the off-road styling means that the exhausts are exactly where the panniers should go - photos I've seen seem to make the bike as wide...

    Hello fellow lurkers, Having admired the AT for some time I'm thinking of taking the plunge and may be acquiring one! But which models is considered the best?....... (stands well back and awaits the slanging match to begin) ;) Obviously which ever model you have is the "best" as far as...

    Good afternoon people. I am sure this probably been dealt with before but here we go. My journey to work includes 30 miles of motorway. I was wondering what the affects of a larger (1 tooth) front sprocket were and weather any had tried this. I know from experience that if you make the engine...

    Hi everyone. After a couple of years off I'm in the market for a new bike. Previously had a CG125 and an SV650, I'm after something capable of some light greenlaning this time. On the Road/Offroad scale I'll be using it for 90-95% road - commuting and 1.5 hour motorway trips at weekends. So...

    Hi all I am having trouble locating the idle mixture screws on my carbs. Can anyone help me out pls? The bike surges when cruising at low speeds in any gear and also misfires when you blip the throttle when gearing down. Nick

    Hi all, I've encountered a strange problem lately. I notice that when I'm cruising around town and I pull to around 100 km/h, release the throttle, my speedo needle won't react or very little at all. Then, when I pull the clutchlever, rev the engine up, the needle falls to around the speed I'm...

    G'day, Happy New Year to everybody. I have a 05 Transalp which I was riding home from town the other night (live on edge of town). 60 km/h about 4,000 rpm and my right leg was getting hot. Looked down & noticed the exhaust bend where it comes out of the rear cylinder had a dull glow. Bike...

    Got a 96 600 which has an annoying stutter when cruising at 40 to 50 mpg. Starts fine , ticks over fine pulls like a train . Ive cleaned and gapped the plug, tappets etc and new fuel every couple of days. Any ideas . Daz

    Hi, need help finding new front brake pads, front sprocket (OEM) and chain for a good price ( rear sprocket allready bought, a new 41 teeth for better cruising rpm:s). I´m tired of my lokal Honda dealer, his prices are not so pleasant I think :( For example new oem front brake pads 56 X 2 =...

    My rev counter started jumping this afternoon while spending some time on the freeway. I was cruising in the region of 6-7k rpm and i noticed at times it would jump 500rpm forward and sometimes 500rpm backwards. Nothing more than that. Power seemed good with no issues. I might just recheck my...
