  4. Dominator / FMX
    When I bought my Dominator 3 1/2 yrs ago I bought it a new Gel battery. The battery sat on a shelf indoors while I built my project. Do you guys think I should get a new battery because this one seems to go flat very quick when I try to start my bike. It was reading 12.3v after trying and...
  5. Africa Twin
    As said in my earlier post my chokes are stuck. So I cant start the bike from cold. I would prefer to get it running and take it to my workshop so I can work on it indoors. Workign ona bike outside is a vile business. To get it running I have thought of using easy start, the Haynes manual is not...
  6. Dominator / FMX
    Hi all So my incredibly reliable Dommie is developing an issue. It's getting colder in this part of the world (UK) and I suspect this is having an impact. So, if I don't use the bike for a day or two, when I come to start her, she spins fine and fires almost perfectly but takes forever to pick...

    So some people have mentioned that their TA700 seems very softly sprung, and I'm much in the same boat myself. I don't really have any issues with solo riding as I'm a bit of a featherweight myself, but with 'her-indoors' on the back there seems a lot of sag, even with the compression as hard...

    was at home with the missus earlier and heard a noise that could only be someone rattleing the garage door, I went to the conservatory to grab a hand axe , just in case , and the missus went upstairs to see what she could see from the landing window, she reckoned she saw about half a dozen...

    Well, for Motorcyclists in the region it's sad, Wylie and Holland of Wellington are shutting their doors tomorrow afternoon for good, just a few months after a move across town . :( No idea why, I rang a short while ago to check if it was true and spoke to the Stores chap, very coy and seems...

  15. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Well, the Black Isle is not really an island, it's a peninsula just across the Moray Firth from me. Went out for a wee blast to roads that I'd never been on before, just goes to show, dozens of small single track roads, some straight as a die for about 1/2 mile, enough to get the old girl wound...

    if you are in the throes of cultivating some err.. homeopathic remedies in a store room within a publicly accessible building you would at least think it would be a good idea not to leave the door wide open. I spotted this earlier today :)

Have had issues with this not charging from anything other than the Navman original car...

    Hi all - newbie here ! I've had my TA since 2006 and much as you would expect of a Honda it's never missed a beat .... until now. And it's got me a bit puzzled. In the last couple of months I seem to have been getting through a lot more petrol than is reflected in the mileage. I'm aware of the...
