    Iv'e got the rear cylinder valve cover off as I am pretty sure the gasket was weeping I got a whiff off burning oil some time last summer when I parked up.

    After about a year sitting I tried starting my RD04 yesterday. It fired but running only on rear cylinder. Fuel gets into cylinders (pluga are wet) and all plugs have spark. Voltages across ignition coils are OK. I tried testing pulse generator voltage as per manual but don't get any reading...

    Has anyone gone down to a single disc on their rd04 using standard lever and master cylinder a braided hose and single standard caliper? Apart from the impact on braking will this work?

    Hi, my 16 yr old XL650 has a strange noise coming from the front cylinder bottom. It is audible when hot at idle rpm, it goes away when the rpm increases. The noise is NOT sharp(high pitched) like regular tappet noise , mine sounds like lightly knocking a hard object with a medium-light hammer...

    Hi guys Unfortunately I've made the decision to offer this to someone else to take on to either have as a donor bike or to restore should they have the time and expertise.

  16. Dominator / FMX
    I've changed the way I ride. Recent experience of needing to fit a new cam got me thinking about top ends vs bottom ends. Over the many years and hundreds of bikes I've had, there have been a few which have killed the top end and on most bikes a dead camshaft means a dead cylinder head too (not...
