    Africa Twin
    Would you believe it? :( My all singing Facet fuel pump has gone & died on me.. The bike hasn't felt 100% for a few weeks, especially under hard acceleration but Saturday it just went VERY quiet. It actually ran every 3/4 minutes for about 10-12 seconds but with no power. Pushed the bike...

  3. NOT CHILD SAFE - Whens this madness going to stop!

    Or be stopped! disgust. Returned to quiet village apparently not so quiet any more to see my folks last night. I then popped to see some freinds who were doing the same. On returning to my folks I found the neighbours wall half kicked over with a big plant pot strewn all over the road...
  4. Long way down overkill!!

    Long way down overkill ?? Personally I luv em.

  9. Erratic running?? - also in Spark plug subject

    Hi I just found this site whilst searching for spark plug info and slightly unnerved by the apparent difficulty in replacing plugs. A mechanic friend (via email from Germany)has suggested new plugs as an answer to my bikes erratic running, as described below. But before I start messing with...
