  2. Indicators

    Have noticed recently that it takes about 4 seconds for my indicators to engage after being turned on, not a highly technical bod myself.......but could it be a dodgy relay??
  3. Check your frames

    Stripping down my xl650 to remove the engine,got all the top bits off and decided to have a go at the exhaust.Laying down to check where it was bolted on i notice the frame looked a bit dodgy,using a lever found the frame was completely rusted through and detached.So people get out and check...

    I have a guy coming round to show me his Honda XL500R he has for sale. The engine has 50000 miles on the clock , is there anything I should look out for with this bike apart from the dodgy front mudguard? Anyone aware of any weaknesses with this bike:thumbup:
  5. Bit of a bodge

    Dominator / FMX
    I thought I would have a go at this bodging melarky. I bodged up a couple exhaust brackets out of an old road sign that I found ,(honest occifer) so I could see how my exhaust looks on my project bike. :clown::clown::clown: I took a 40mm strip of 3mm aluminium and used a socket , a hammer and my...

  7. Fuel filter RD07

    Africa Twin
    Just fitting a Facet fuel pump and wondering if I can fit a different fuel filter with a clear window so if it's captured any crap from dodgy fuel outside Europe I can see it has and clean it. Sounds a good idea in theory but anyone know of a clear case fuel filter that's cleanable? Thanks in...
  8. Hybrid Africa Twin on eBay!!!

    Africa Twin
    There's an RD07a looking AT on eBay at the moment registered an as RD03!! Is it me but it all sounds a bit dodgy to me, even the RD07a frame has the RD03 frame plate on it. It may have Ohlins shock but the claim that it's possibly the best ever AT to be on eBay sounds way off...unless anyone on...

  12. New Zealand bike hire

    Anyone hired a bike in NZ? Planning on going back there in march 2013, this time to do some bike touring as well as showing the missus a bit of my favourite country ;-) I'd like to hire a GS, but I don't think the missus' dodgy hips will cope too well, so it looks like it'll be an RT or a Pan...
  13. Other XR's

    Other XR's i've had the pleasure to own over the years... The XR650R was massive fun but i used to struggle starting it with me dodgy knee. Not strictly a XR i know but the XLR250 as i've tried to explain to my mates is still one of the best bikes i've ever owned. I used to ride it to work, ride...
  14. Dodgy neutral light

    Mechanical Advice
    It seems my TA is not complete without an electrical gremlin. Having sorted the simultaneous dead battery and sidestand switch that was plaguing me two months ago, I now have an intermittent neutral light fault. I switch the bike on and the neutral light is off, despite being in neutral at the...

  18. Dodgy transalp clutch cable!

    If you lose your clutch adjustment within a few days of having last adjusted it, check the cable first - This wee surprise was hidden from view inside the cable outer. Wasn't found straight away of course, oh no, first the exhaust, clutch casing etc was dragged off and taken apart, then a couple...
  19. Some well dodgy people on here innit !!!!

    Seriously concerned about the people that occupy this board and the sort of people it attracts- I really am. I casually mentioned in a post that I would have to get me one of those gps thingies for all the rallies Im planning next year. Next thing I know I'm getting a pm from stanbloke to...
