  1. Who's liable for my tools destroyed in fire at workplace ?

    Chatter
    I've got a tricky question. I was hoping someone here would have some experience or insight. I went for a job at a workshop. The boss was keen to hire me but he said he'd put me on a trial for a few weeks to see how I got on. He told me to bring in my tools and do a couple of days a week in the...

    Varadero
    Project VaraTurnipStorm or FireTurnipDero. Now I know I’m still working on the Tracker project, but after thinking of this name I just had to start a thread before someone else does & pinches the title. Ha. The idea has come around after reading up about various Harley XR750 flat track based...

    Dominator / FMX
    hi, I've got a problem with my great condition, low milage (11,000) SLR 650 and hope that someone might be able to help. I bought it in August and everything has been working faultlessly until I went to start it last week and it sounded like the battery was going flat which was strange because...
  6. Re Born Rider, Back In The Saddle on a RD07!

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, After 10years, I am proud to say that I have bought another Twin. I sold my last one, a RD04, many years ago and deeply regretted the decision. My new one is a 2001, 18,000 mile model. It is in almost perfect condition, and has been parked up since 2003! I have changed to oil etc, but...
  7. HISS

    Transalp
    So, on Friday night I parked my '07 650 TA in the garage, everything was fine. On the Saturday morning I tried to fire it up and it just spun on the starter with no hint of life. I then noticed the green 'key' light was not going out, so that is the HISS warning light. I've had the bike around a...

  11. Another one bites the dust - for now

    Dominator / FMX
    So I have no choice but to cancel the Dominator insurance. This obviously leaves me very vulnerable should the worst happen. The policy has only just renewed but sadly the MOT runs out early March which would mean the policy is invalid according to the documents that I received. I will...
  12. Dominator cut out - revs drop out

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi Guys, Not been around much lately, not had much to report or not been best placed to assist. Have been lurking in the background though. Tonight on the way home from work I had a nightmare. Bike started to cut out from the moment I set off, I initially thought the bike was cold. All the...

    Varadero
    Bored with your Varadero? Enter "Project Varatrackerstorm or Firetrackerdero" I’ve been thinking of this project since coming across a picture of a VTR engined tracker years ago. To me it looks spot on, everything fits just right. I’ve been studying the picture/screen background for...
  14. Rough running?

    Mechanical Advice
    Hi I'm experiencing some rough running whilst the engine is ticking over I think it's referred to as hunting, it also seems to miss fire occasionally on a steady throttle at around 2000 rpm with a soft sort of wet fart backfire on the overrun. Can anyone put there finger on a reason for these...

  16. Manifold studs, bolt - WTF am I going to do here.

    Dominator / FMX
    OK guys sorry for the WTF but I have had this bike two years in February 2017 and since I have had the bike I have know there has been a slight blow from the exhaust manifold. I think this causes the famous loud back fire! Any way face palms aside the bike has not blown up - yet. I do think I...
