    Hi guys I've not posted for ages, I've been a touch busy with other bikes/hobbies/diy and life. I've also not ridden my XR for some time due to pain in my right foot as I found kicking it over was far from comfortable, even with an enduro boot on. Today I go the results from the doctor...

    I'd be interested to know what average running temperature you guys have. I went for a 150 mile ride yesterday and the temp reached 107. The road conditions were dry, 19C and an average speed 80-90, continuous for 2hrs or so. The temp gauge showed two marks below red so nowhere near boiling but...

    Hi, I have discovered that one of the above items has a small tear in it, so I intend replacing both. I cannot seem to find a supplier, Honda Part no; 16111-MY1-000 states that it covers up to year 2000, mine is 2001. Any ideas as to suppliers of new genuine replacements? Thanks, Pat.

    Hello Gents, If I wanted to use an earth fed switch (momentary push type) to kill the ignition, which wire do I need to feed the earth to? The standard Domi kill switch just cuts the power to the CDI, but I am trying to simplify the wiring and switches. Many thanks Jim
  10. Africa Twin Technical Specs
    After all the parts I have taken off and put back on I am stuck with this little bracket. I did put a label on it saying sprocket cover, but I can't see in any place it will fit.

    Do you need to keep a regulator rectifier wired into the bike if you are not having lights horn indicators etc? New to this whole wiring business on motorbikes from what I can figure out the wires coming from it are for lighting mainly apart from a green which goes to earth and a red that goes...

    Hello. Trying to install led lights. I've tried with a few different led relays. The closest I get is to have one side working as it should and other side makes hazard lights. Same effect on all relays but blink speed varies. I can switch the cables to make both left and right function so its...

This in turn seems to discharge the battery. I have replaced the solenoid but its still doing it. I have the...
