  1. Dominator / FMX
    Hello, I guess this is my first post here. I hope to post more. I have bought an FMX 650 2006. There are no stickers on it, except one on front fender, and one on right gas tank side, but they are not original. I was wondering, is there any electronic version of stickers, whether they are...
  2. Dominator / FMX
    Really hoping one of you knowledgeable folk on here can help as I'm having issues with the bike popping on tickover (tickover problems seem common for the nx650 by the looks of things). Sometimes the revs will hang high after small throttle input and other times the revs will drop and die but on...

    This applies to a 2011 model XL 700V. It has gone 53000 km. The problem started at about 50000 km. Is there anyone in Norway who has had the same symptoms? Or is it a Reodor Felgen out there who has some smart input? I posted this last year and got some tips, but without result. Have gone in and...
  4. XR
    Hi All, I've just recently aquired an 93' XR650L and it didn't run well initially. Symptoms where popping once in a while while driving, but also when standing still, dropping gas to idle, it ran for around 15 secs and then one pop in the exhaust and boom stop :-) I reckoned it was running to...

    Hi I have recently bought a very cheap 1989 RD03. It had been stolen, and was written of by the insurance company. The thieves have painted it flat black, and broken some parts. Luckily the black paint comes of quite easily, without damaging the original paint or decals, but I'm having...

    My RD07A have started to behave strange when it is cold. It starts with full choke but dies after a while. I can start it again but slowly dies. If I add throttle it dies at once. When the engine gets warm there is no problem only when cold. It can take 15 min struggling wit hstart gas and...

    Hello everybody, and greetings from Finland! I have been reading a lot in this forums before, but today I decided to make my own profile. (Sorry my english) Today happened something that has happened to me once before. I drove my XL650V in hard sidewind. I think I can call it a storm. In the...
  9. Africa Twin
    My last bike (600 Alp) and my new AT both have tubed tyres, and it was always in the back of my mind "What happens if I get a puncture?" I've literally no idea how to change the inner tubes, even though I must have watched a dozen You Tube Videos on 'how-to'. Plus, I really dont fancy the...
  10. Transalp
    Hello, I recently bought a 1997 Transalp XL 600 V. Today I ran out of gas after ~280 km (173 mi), so I switched to reserve, and continued riding another 15 km (10 mi) before reaching a gas station. When I stopped, I switched back on to the main fuel tank, and started refueling. I was surprised...

    Hi guys, I have a question regarding two issues that have been alive for a while now on my bike. When I bought her the forks were a bit twisted (it was crashed) and I found a specialist that straightened them + I upgraded to progressive springs. The thing is, from the beginning I have been...

  14. Dominator / FMX
    Nothing about the SLR/FX phases me mechanically, except the first time I remove the cam cap bolts at the front of the head on a bike that's new to me. There are four with an 8mm head and one with a 10mm head, the bottom of the threads is exposed to all the crap thrown up from the front wheel...
  15. Transalp
    Hi, I have recently bought a Transalp XL600V -87. When releasing the throttle for shifting gears, the bike continues to rev for one or two seconds at around 3-4000 rpm. I have tested to spray start gas on the inlet/carb to see if there is any leak, but I don't notice any rev change when doing...

    Hi all. Can any one out there tell me if the parts off a gas gas EC250 will fit on a gas gas 250 pampera. Plastics, exhaust, engine, etc, the engine out of my txt 250 also looks the same as my pampera. If the parts of an EC 250 will fit then that solves the problem of hard to get pampera parts...
