    Hi there, I've had my AT RD07A for a couple of months now and occasionally it stalls whilst riding. I can usually get it going again after a couple of minutes. This happens about every 100 miles or so. I've been advised that it might be a faulty fuel cut off relay rather than the pump itself...

    I've a non working speedo and replaced both the cable and the white plastic gear, as mine was worn, but still no action. Had a look at all the other threads but little about what could be faulty on the clocks end if it is that. The needle appears to be fine that screws into the back of the...

    Hi! On my 1998 Transalp the brakes on the front, left side are sticking. The right caliper is fine, but if I give the wheel a push it stops in an instant due too the left caliper. I have replaced the caliper pistons and the rubber seals for the pistons, but that hasn't done any good. I am in...

    Hi, can anybody explain how auto decomp works on XR600R '92 in details? Is oil pressure involved in it's work? Can be faulty decomp the reason of not starting engine? How soft should be decompressor cam spring? It feels really soft. If all mechanism looks quite ok, no excessive wearing visible...

    Hi, I was trying to remove the tank yesterday and the vacuum petcock was faulty and didn't turn off the petrol flow and fuel p*ssed all over the garage floor (and me!). Are these prone to faults? Should I get a new one or replace with a conventional valve? Thanks ........ Steve

  18. Africa Twin
    Saw this a while ago on eBay. Just posted into another thread, but sorta thought it may deserve a topic of it's own. Nothing to do with me, I don't have a Tripmaster, but thought it may help one of you poor souls out there...
  19. Transalp
    My right front indicator does not work. It's not the bulb. The clicker thing still makes the back one flash at twice the speed. Is it a break in the wire or the regulator thingy.... if I knew where that was anyway. I'm expecting the answer to be bleeding obvious. But my bike maintenance...
