  1. Mechanical Advice
    Hi all, looking into carrying some extra fuel on the ole Dizzy, I'm cool with the jerry can, but fed up of leaking flexi tubes, so wondered if anyone has tried something that works well, I've seen a nice looking one by sealey, but you cant beat a recommendation. I want that go go juice on the...
  2. Dominator / FMX
    Guys I need a bit of help. I have owned an 1988 NX650 for 1 year now and it hasn’t ever run properly and I am out of ideas. I welcome any suggestions you can offer. The bike starts properly when the choke is open full and the revs are high, as soon as I start to close off the choke the bike runs...

    Just want to remind you guys about lubing the cables now that some of the bikes are about to be laid up. Mine isn't, ride it most of the year, but around this time, I like to give the rascals a bit of oil :thumbup: I forgot to do it last year and it got me stuck in Keswick with a bust clutch...
  4. Transalp

  5. Ride Reports and Pictures

  6. Mechanical Advice
    After clearing out my garage I found a couple of ½ full tins of engine oil. Mixed together I will have enough for an oil change. They are from different manufactures but are both 10w40 synthetic. They’ve been sat in the garage for probably 10-15 years but I wouldn’t have thought oil has a...
  7. Chatter
    I've just had the 4000 mile service done on my TA, this cost £120. Initially I thought this was a bit steep for basically an oil change. (Did get a courtesy bike for the day though.) However I can tell they've done some other small jobs as well. For a start the chain is far too tight, more like...
