  4. Neutral light

    Dominator / FMX
    Intermittent problem, hoping to nail it before it becomes a permanent problem - no light on when gear is in neutral. For a while on my commute this morning, the neutral light stopped working. It was fine when I set off, stopped for a while, then was fine again. Any ideas what to look at first...

    From the BBC - Car driven with bonnet up on A31 in Hampshire. Really like the comment from the AA - the man's actions highlighted that some drivers were "outside the mould of normality". Outside the mould of normality? Well, that's one way of putting it. 100% free webcam site! | Awesome...

    Chatter
    Dear All, I have just started writing a blog of my feeble attempts at learning how to maintain a motorcycle. I've been riding for over 30 years and can only do the very basic stuff so I've committed myself to learning by buying a 1998 Honda Transalp. You can read about my trials and...
  11. Idiot Tories at it again.

    Chatter
    Apparently it is Morally wrong to pay tradesmen in cash according to Treasury Minister David Gauke. Seems to me that it is way easier to hit the hard working* man in the street than to go after all their tax dodging mates in the mega corporations. Same old Tories! * Work - something...

    Hi all, I wasn't sure where to post this - it was a bit of a toss-up whether I post this one here or in "for sale" section, but I decided to ask here first (since frame = "sort of mechanical"), so here goes. (Mods, if you think this is in the wrong place, please do move it to the appropriate...

    Chatter
    Today is a bank holiday in Belgium (on a Sunday, who thought of that)... So I thought I'd do some maintenance on the KTM.

  16. paragliding idiot

    Chatter
    Darwin award entry - if he dies at least. Buys a £300 paraglider off ebay and watches a video on Youtube before setting off. And then tied his paraglider to his car so he did not fly too high. And breaks his back. Numptie!

  18. XR600R rear wheel removal - am I being an idiot?

    XR
    I'm just trying to get the rear wheel off the XR, something I've done plenty of times before on my Suzuki SV and GSX-R. I've undone the axle nut, and given the axle a light tap through until it is flush with the swing arm, but no amount of pulling and waggling from the other side will move the...
