  1. Ride Reports and Pictures
    After a call from LargewWayRound (LWR), suggesting that it would be nice to take advantage of the break in the wet weather and go for a ride, we arranged a meet & ride out into the hills. Once all had gathered, LWR , AfricaJim, The Mountie & me, and refreshments had been consumed, a route was...

    tend to lean things up? ( 4 stroke ) Ok ..I understand that a more free flowing exhaust will allow more exhaust gasses to vacate the combustion chamber but why would that "lean" the mixture as the void will simply be replace by fresh fuel/air mix from the carb/injector on the next induction...
  3. Welsh Invasion
    First off thanks to Mike for organising and Sharrie for cooking. Another cracking weekend. David's 19th birthday today and we had a table booked for a meal at 2pm so needed to get away early. When I loaded up this morning it was dry and warm and I loaded up without a jacket on. Hope I didn't...

    During the recent cold weather I had to increase the flow from minimum as oil stopped flowing. While this has worked I noticed that it is only oiling the links of the side where the nib is situated and not all of the chain as before. The nib is still in the correct postion slightly above the...

    Last night I replaced the burnt-out fuel pump on my Deauville with a facet pump. A fairly simple bit of plumbing and wiring, following comprehensive instructions. I tried it last night, the fuel started flowing, the pump started whirring and all seemed good. then it petered out and stalled. I...

  8. Africa Twin
    Hi Everyone, I am now considering that the real fix for my AT may be dropping a lit match in the fuel tank! Still having the problem I posted before despite trying all sorts. Starts beautifully, idles perfectly, but wont go over 4500 revs. As soon as it hits there, it stutters and farts, and...

  10. Ride Reports and Pictures
    I got up early on Saturday, well early for me, and was off on the bike by 9am. I headed up the A1000 following signs for Welwyn Garden City. There were lots of bloody cyclists on the road who just seem to ride two abreast and hog the road. :mad::mad: I can get round them but wasn't fair on...

    Cleaned the bike last week and noticed that the chain was quite dry, have used it this week and come to clean it again today and there is surface rust on the outside of the links - exactly where the Scottoiler should be dropping oil. Its the touring setup, and was on the bike when I bought it...

  18. XL Technical Specs
    I just thought I'd post the carb settings for my bike. Its a 1982 UK XL500R. Its pretty much standard except for a full Micron exhaust system. This is going to be typical of this bike, as the standard system tends to have rotted out after nigh-on 30 yrs :( OK, the bike has a standard air...

    Ok, Some of you might have noticed my previous posts about the front brake system on my bike: What started out as a simple pad replacement went from stuck slide pins to a complete rebuild andnew pistons. Now it's refitting time.... And we have no pressure what so ever:blob5: So I get out...
  20. Mechanical Advice
    I should get the carb back from ultrasonic cleaning this weekend then I can try and start my 1979 XL250S after many years. Is there a way to check oil is flowing? I remember loosening a nut on the cylinder head on a Honda single I've had before. Anyone got any other tips?
