    Ok so i'm in a bit of a pickle here... went for a ride over the weekend and as murphy would have it I didn't pack my multi meter. 90 mins in stopped for a coffee - bike started fine +30 mins filled up and the starter/relay made the dreadful clicking noise on first go, but then started ok...

    Several years ago, the idea of the Scrapheap adventure ride was hatched as a great way to raise money to support those with Down Syndrome. The idea of the Scrapheap Adventure is to buy a bike that was destined for the Scrapheap for less than a $1000 and get it to a stage were it could be ridden...

    Hello Ben! It so nice to see you , again - it's been a long time! The sun was shining, the day was warm, my spirits were high.... ....I was sooo excited as Ben has been locked up for more than a year and only ventured out a week or two back...

    Boris's Moral Dilemma thread, and also that by Africajim regarding warranty work, have got me thinking about the cost of owning a new-ish bike. Notwithstanding the fact that most, if not all, modern vehicles have way more electronics than the Saturn V moon rockets and therefore need Deep Blue...

    This may have already been posted, even so I think it needs to be posted again. :) It saved me calling out the AA last night when my 700 wouldn't start, kill switch wasn't down, side stand was up... f**k, what am I going to do.... was in gear! Duh. Huge list to help you diagnose problems with...

    Afternoon folks, new xl rider here with a few problems i am hoping you can help with. I have just bought an XL125R although i think the bike has been made up of a few different parts (the tank was originally green for a start) and the bike has since been converted for field use ie no lights...
  7. Africa Twin
    As I slowly work my way through my recently acquired project (whose previous maintenance leaves a little to be desired...) I am finding each "problem" not so easy to diagnose by only looking at a fiche. This bike is missing more parts than one can imagine! The side stand has been rubbing on the...
  8. Africa Twin
    Great, once again on my hols in sunny South of France and I've noticed the most godawful noise from the bike. Oh, how to describe it?????? I first thought it was the chain, in fact I'm still not convinced it is NOT the chain. Seems to be when letting off the throttle and rolling to a halt, or...

    I've had this RD07a for a month or two now and there is a problem I just cant diagnose properly and was wondering if anyone here could help... When pulling to a stop or while very slow riding (traffic jams etc) , the steering is very twitchy and seems to always want to pull to the right...

    Hey All, My @ seems to be suffering a bit lately, first there was the speedo that stopped working and now I think the regulator may be fried... I was out on the bike yesterday but when I stopped and parked up the bike my dyna charge monitor leds stayed on even when I removed the keys (it...

    Hi ! Just when I thought I was roadworthy after fixing my NX headlight, I noticed the rear light wasn't working. Took out the bulb - lot of rust in there, which was cleaned the best I could - new bulb and bingo the tail light comes on. The brake light don't work though :( Could this be the...

    I recently tried to start my AT '99 but the only result i got was a dead battery.:toothy3: I then crash started it, which went fine. So i was thinking, is the rectifier broken or is it my battery? If it's my rectifier, can i still ride the bike or will i cook the battery? If it cooks can i...

    Monsiour La Honda in Grenoble was unable to diagnose this so maybe you lot can help as I will be in another garage at 8am (7am your time). Bike went like a rocket all the way down. Sat Nav recorded ten hours moving and, including getting out of London and all the motorway stops, an average...
  17. Africa Twin
    Hi all, Got my RD04 back from the dealer the other day, where I'd had, amongst other things, the head race bearing done. I requested this, because, under braking, I could see quite a lot of movement coming from the head (just under where the big bolt is on the middle of the steering combo)...
