    Losing the will to live trying to find a relevant manual or wiring diagram for an RD08, problem I have is the neutral light comes on when holding the clutch in and goes out when released, and when using gearbox, neutral light comes on when changing gear up or down when dipping the clutch...

    I’m a strong believer in less is more when it comes to touring speed, a rider can withstand more hours at 65mph for example than 75, especially if they stop every hour for 10 mins rest. I’m riding 250 miles on Friday but in no particular hurry, so thought it might be fun to try a programme of...

    Hi, Please would somebody give me an advice on changing the exhaust downpipes? I'm always worried I may shear off the lugs that screw into the cylinder heads when I'm undoing the domed nuts holding the flanges. Also, is there a work around to not having the gasket between the downpipe and the...

    I have been trying for two weeks or more to remove the clutch basket, I have tried everything I can think of and nothing is working, I bought a clutch holding tool today and still no luck. Of course I don’t have a impact gun and I’m using basic tools. Also the engine is out of the frame. Has...

    Does anyone know if there is supposed to be a washer or spacer between to fork and the speedo drive assembly? I know there is one on the opposite side. But for some reason, when I do up the shaft on the wheel. The bolts holding the disk are rubbing on the caliper on the speedo drive side. Its...

    I am trying to remove the front sprocket cover and have undone the two bolts but can't get the cover off. I have looked at the Haynes manual and can't see anything else that could be holding it on. Am I missing something? Looks like something near the bottom stopping it from coming off.

    Hi, I have had the carb cleaned(by JRS). Once the bike has been started and warm and i am riding down the road ,it feels like it is holding back .If I open the throttle it improves a bit, if I put the choke on that helps also. Do you think the needle height is wrong? Wayne

  11. Varadero
    Just wanted to check something. I wanted to fit a fender extender to my 2011 Varadero. Now on my old 2002 Varadero taking the front mudguard off is simple. However after removing 6 bolts holding the mudguard on, 4 mudguard bracket bolts and 3 bolts that hold the brake piping against the...

    Looks like the welder has fooked my 600 front cylinder head :pain10: Welded round a broken exhaust stud he said he was going to remove. Now there is no way it is coming out. Anyone got a spare front holding open a door or some thing. Just had an idea maybe I could cut out the good section...

    Pictures sent with PCN from local council. My daughter has a parking permit (on the dash under the PCN) and never bought a ticket because she doesn't need one! Is that finger holding a ticket on the OUTSIDE of the screen? I know it's not that clear but can anyone see any sign of that ticket...

    Hi guys. Heard nothing but good things about Heavy Duties and they are one of the few places that make pannier racks for the RD04. Anyone here got a set and how are they holding up? Are they symmetrical or is the exhaust side further away from the bike? I have an OCD about things being...

  19. Varadero
    Just getting around to putting a Givi pannier rack on my old XL1000V2. Instructions say to use the original Varadero rack bolts to secure the rack. The original bolts holding down the front of the Varadero rack seem a little short when the rack is added. I was planning on replacing the original...
