    The nipple ends of these blighters often snap off. There might be a source of replacement spigot / nipple mouldings ... missus. Anyone able to supply similarly precise dimensions of a detached 'Long One' (Steady now, Alias) ? Thank You !

    I'm desperate. I detached all the screws, wires, pipes from the airbox and after spent more than a hour I'm still unable to remove the airbox :( We (my friend and me) tried on every possible way, no luck, I start thinking the frame was welded with that bloody box inside. Please give me an...

  5. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Well, some of you on here may know that I've been struggling a bit with the demands the DSA has been making on my riding skills :rolleyes:. And I mentioned recently also to some that I hardly qualify as an 'Adventure Bike' Rider - and yet most of my rides seem to turn out into an (unplanned)...

    The Diode in the fusebox on my RD04 has become detached and there appears to be no way to replace or reconnect it. The fusebox is a sealed unit and ( I assume) comes with the Diode. I guess this little blighter is essential for ignition as whilst the bike will turn over, (only with the clutch...

    So, the clocks have gone back and the evenings are getting darker. Que time for figuring out how I'm going to light the garage so I can at least get the bike in and out without loosing my gloves. I've been using a big rechargeable spot light, reflecting it off the low ceiling, as it and the...

    Speedo died on my way to work this morning, actually saw it go! Whats the chances of that?! I`ve done some searches and read about the weak link of the plastic gear but when I detached the cable and checked the little gearbox it seems to be fine. The little output shaft rotates about 90deg but...

    What a great site, just got myself an @ and found you guys the other day. What a great bike the @ is and why have I only just got one? I should have had one years ago. The first thing I noticed when flicking through the site is all the talk about the seat, I come from a dirt bike background so...
