  1. Varadero - speedo healer

    Other Honda
    I've recently changed front sprocket down from 16t to 15t. The rideability is dramatically improved around town, but it throws out the speedo. 80mph indicated is in fact 70mph. This is something I can deal with, but the odometer is also out, throwing of total mileage the bike has covered (extra...
  2. Modifying the rebound spring of the XRV750 fork

    Africa Twin
    Hello guys, I have some evil thoughts about cutting in half the rebound spring or even more - ordering custom ones to be made if all is OK with the shorter length. I am talking about part number 10 here Now this is because I have good sag set up now, but when I put fork emulators they will...
  3. 1998 RD08 Wheel Offset

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi, I'm in the process of rebuilding both front and rear wheels on my 1998 RD08, problem is I've only got the 88-89 manual. According to this manual the front wheel offset is given as 22.25mm from the disk to the rim, this is probably ok for my '98 as nothing much changed from the RD02 model on...
  4. Trip meter. Anyone ever replaced the glass?

    Africa Twin
    Mines gone all crackeled. Seems like many have done the same. Hoping someone has some advice before I start cutting it up!!
  5. My FMX tracker project

    Dominator / FMX
    Thought I’d post a couple of pictures of progress so far. I picked up a tatty FMX in March 18 and since the have been slowly rebuilding it in the style of a tracker / Scrambler hybrid. Still lots of tidying to do but the basics are now done and I like the direction it’s going. It’s all my...

  8. Welding a fuel tank...

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi Guys, I am in the process of cutting out the bottom of a fuel tank to fit over the top rail of my NX650.. as you do :) Once I have fabricated the new pieces, it will require stitching / welding.. I can mig, tig, arc, to a suitable standard but I feel mig or tig will give me to much...
  9. Engine Bars wanted.

    Transalp
    I'm after a set of engine bars for my 2007 Transalp 650, preferably used, condition is not an issue. I will be modifying the bars to include spotlights and will be having them powder coated when I'm done. It seems a shame to buy new ones and start cutting and welding at them. If anyone has any...

  14. FCR-MX Throttle position sensor cover

    Dominator / FMX
    So I got hold of an FCR-MX 40mm carb from a CRF250R. I am slowly working my way towards getting it to fit right without grinding off the decellerator cable housing or cutting the frame. I am an intake boot off of an FX650. It fits but still need to check it out. In the meanwhile I made a...
  15. Honda Luggage Rack

    Transalp
    I've just bought a second hand genuine Honda Luggage side pannier rack for a Transalp XL700. Unfortunately there are no instructions with the kit :(. As it appears that installation requires cutting into plastic, I would be grateful if anyone with the same kit still had the installation...
  16. Cutting up my mudguard. Asbestos sticker.

    Dominator / FMX
    I was just about to take a jigsaw and dremel to my mudguards to shorten and reshape them when I see an asbestos sticker on the rear mudguard underneath the rear rack. It's an RD02 88-89 model and I'm now wondering if this was just stuck on sometime in its life or if these mudguards actually...
  17. pilot jet

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi. When I stripped my carb last time I found the pilot jet really scaled up , I cleaned out the jet but since doing this the bike has a really annoying habit of cutting out without warning , not often but once is too often when commuting to London. I thought I would change the jet first to see...
  18. High revs cutout

    Africa Twin
    Hi Lads - just looking for your thoughts on this... When doing around 80 - 120km/h on my @T RD07A, all is good with the engine, until I throttle back very slightly, say on a downhill to maintain constant speed, then it feels like the engine is jerking slightly/cutting out for very short...
  19. Cutting out/ Stalling

    Africa Twin
    Hello all, I just took delivery of my first africa twin this morning :) its absolutely awesome. I can't get over how well it fits me at 198cm. Just one issue though, it won't start without me giving it a bit of a twist and then as soon as i let the revs drop to idle it cuts out. when riding...
