I have a XR500 1983 I think, the engine type with "RFVC" cast on the rocker cover, anyway, the inlet valve cam followers are toast and need...
  2. Dominator / FMX
    Hi All, I bought a Dominator off ebay last month which was running fine when I collected it but refused to run below 2000 rpm by the time I'd ridden it the 230mls back home. After much investigation I've found that one of the exhaust valve seats is loose in the head (the seat fell out the head...

    I've just bought a little CLR125, it's like a mini Vigor. I took the SLR for it's MOT and I saw the CLR in the back of the shed. It belonged to the garage and was all together and running, but cosmetically rough and very cammy. So why would I buy a top end knockity bears arse rough CLR? It was...

    Right.. This isn't an opportunity to start a religious fight (although debate is fine by me) as I don't care what religion you may or may not have (I come from the east coast you know :) ) But I do have some questions for those "in the know" On the way back from Wales we passed a car with a...

  7. Past National Meets
    I lead my first ride-out at this years national and we did second man drop off. Just wondered if folk could answer me a question so in know in future, at roundabouts, if you go straight on, is it common knowledge that you don't need to drop-off and that the followers go straight on so long as...

    OK, so I've removed the head off my Xr250 and so far I can't see anything that would cause a knocking noise. The head is A1 (apart from the stripped spark plug thread), the camshaft and followers look as good as new, the valves seem to be fine open/close ok and the cam chain seems ok. What...

    Need a bit of help here , at the weekend i fitted a new camshaft/bearings and cam followers to my xl600 rmg. I put it back together and it started on button and sounded as sweet as nut. However I used the bike to get to my work last night and on they way home this morning it started to rattle at...

    I have recently bought an XLR250, but I believe the engine is the same as the XR250 so thought it would be better to ask the question here:) Since I bought it the engine has made a slight ticking/rattle noise which I assumed was either valve adjustment or cam chain. I have adjusted the valves...

    Hello Chaps, My Vigour has a probelm with the oil overheating, result rebore, new camshaft, followers and rockers along with seals etc. The problem is I can't find out why the oil is overheating, it is getting so hot that after a few miles I can't get the dipstick out. The engine runs sweetly...

    Hi Rubberchicken..........hope you are well.Would like to know your opinion on the use of an oil cooler for a NX650. This would be inserted between the return oil pipe from engine and the underneath side of the oil tank. I totally agree with your thoughts re oil problems, my dominator is a...

    Been working on Abigails (project XBR500 cafe racer) engine recently and have uncovered a World of pain and misery:( It is the saddest lump of corroded aluminium you've ever seen.
