    Hi all, I was wondering if anyone had any advice on who to go to for parts? Who is the best / best value / most helpful supplier? I also need a new battery and was wondering if I should go for a direct replacement or find a more modern sealed battery? Cheers!

    Hi All, I've tried searching but haven't managed to find a definitive answer. Is there a direct replacement carb that would fit a 1999 nx650? I was going to strip and rebuild mine as it's got the usual tickover issue but if there is a better replacement that could be used I may well just go...

    Any used bike sites people can direct me to in Europe? Still not over there yet but starting to keep my eyes open for a descent used bike. I have been watching mobile.de but are there any others? Hope to get that way in the next couple months but this is a slow process for sure. Thanks

    I am about to fit some heated grips to a TA 700. So I need to find an 'ignition controlled' live power source. Can anyone tell me where I can find one? It needs to be ignition controlled (ie not direct to battery) as if the grips are left on with the ignition off, they will drain the battery.

    Ok so with a mechanic I pulled my slipping clutch apart and found it only had 7 friction plates instead of 8. I got a set of 8 friction plates but here in Belgrade (I'm on the road) no one can supply the smooth plates of which I only have 6 instead of 7. So I now have a clutch with two friction...
