    I just had my first go at logging in using my new smart phone and the tapatalk app, only to be confronted with at least 6 new posts that seemed to originate from me.

  2. Clutch cable change

    TA 650 (probably applies to all models though) For anyone thinking of doing this..on the 650 its a bit of a job. The Haynes manual says you just "attach the lower end of the new cable to the upper end of the old cable, and just pull the cable through", yeah, right. What it fails to mention...
