economy

    I have a PD10 TA 600 with the helmholtz resonator but I also have the carb feed pipe off a PD06 without it, which one should I fit? Is it likely for emissions/economy/performance or to take a tone out of the exhaust note?
  2. How to.....
    Hello, I am Dorus and I am new here to the forums. I recently bought a Honda XRV750 RD07 as my first bike. I noticed that my front brakes are dragging and I am worried that it really impacts my fuel economy. I've looked around the internet and found some videos how fix it. Do you guys think it's...

    Hi everyone, I couldn't find any answer, because in all topics I found everyone asked about larger front or/and smaller rear sprockets in order to get more speed and (questionably) more fuel economy. I travel practically always with my wife on the back seat and the second thing is that we do...

    Bought a pattern clutch cable(false economy I know) It is a little shorter than my original cable. I have tried to source a genuine cable but to no avail where if possible can I get one?

    So here comes the first of my many newb questions :) Oh, and it's a Austrian '91 AT - which, I think, makes it an RD04? Anyhoo, it came with a Givi Maxi top box and, as I hate, top boxes with a loathing and a passion, I removed it, along with the AT baseplate only to find a rather sad, and...
  6. CRF - New Forum!
    Came across this Alan Smith CRF230 streamlining project when I was reading about Craig Vetter playing with streamlining of a Honda CN250 Helix Freedom Machine - Fuel Economy -Chap 36 Not quite the body kit for any green lane!

    Hello I wanted the forums advice on a choice of smaller bikes for touring. Being retired I don’t have time constraints, the desire to go fast and I need to think about economy. My favoured choices just now are both Hondas a crf250l and a xr125l I am 16 stone and would be carrying perhaps...

    Hi all, well I'm looking to downsize the Twin (see Tatty up for grabs in the for sale section) I'm not wanting to change again (no really I'm not) so this next bike needs to last me, but which one? I'm after a simple robust 600- 650 single that can do a good few miles with decent economy and...

    Ive got the choice of mounting either my old Hepco Becker or Zega panniers which are luring in my garage. They are left over from previous bikes I no longer have . My new bike looks like its going to be a 800 Tiger XC which I'll be buying without a pannier rack . Does anyone know of an...

    How much is my bike worth coz I want to sell it! Tried and failed before,. Could have been the price or the time of year or economy stupid? Not bad condition, just over 40k miles.

    Well after a period of unknown patience from me (no really it was weeks!) I've picked up something that should see me till at least the summer (and hopefully longer) Comfort and economy with enough umph for a smile but keep me points free! All I need now is a longer break in the weather to go...

    some people have no idea do they? I had the manager of one of the other boatyards in the area on the phone the other day spitting fire & declaring that he is going to take us to court & sue us for avery penny we've got bacause we've been "pinching his clients". apparently he had a couple of...

    Hi all, anyone got some useful insights into a DR 650? all day comfort, stiing on a motorway, economy, robust in a drop, quality of finish, all that kind of thing would help. Thanks
  14. Transalp
    Now I've already had a couple of 600's but what could convince me to move upto a 650? The 600 looks much nicer and more 'manly' if dated, with the 650 m curvier and expensive in a drop! But how does the engine behave, power and economy? and weather protection wind blast etc? And legendary finish...

    Hi all, looking at a replacement bike and both the KLE 500 and KLR 650 bounced onto my radar, now I've never owned a Kwak but heard the finish is worse than a Suzy is this true? ( or possible) and can anyone shed a little light on the models. In my mind the KLE is going to be a cheaper and...

    Just read this from the Motorcycle Action Group: I guess if your economy is in a mess, the government will maximise its income! :snorting: I blame Top Gear for increasing the Pass's popularity. :protest:

    In being really pissed off about the Olympics? All we see on the telly and radio is Olympic that and Olympic that. Real news seems to be relegated to the last few minutes of the bulletins where traditionally the cat stuck up tree stories reside. As for the cost. So far, depending who you...

    Hey guys Just curious, do you guys change your main jet lower for better fuel economy? The place im staying rite now is at sea level, and my 650 TA comes with a Modded Muzzy Exhaust wonder if the stock main jet is too rich or should i stay it that way Thanks
