  1. CRF - New Forum!
    Hi guys. My friend and I recently installed new gears in my CRF 250 R 2007. All works great apart from ive now noticed my bike seems to be getting very hot very fast. Literally within 10 seconds of starting it the pipe at the front is scorching hot! I rode it briefly mainly to test the gears and...

    So how do you go about choosing a proper size fuse? I received my new 3 circuit setup and would like to get it installed now. One line is going to my gps and another to the rear trunk. is there a rule of thumb to use for figuring things out? Also for the switched circuits can I use a rear turn...

    My RD 4 seems to be running a little lean after i have installed a hi-flo filter and Arrow exhaust. I am thinking of fitting dynojets stage 1 kit, but is it worth the money? The Arrow is fittet with a sligtly opened-up db-killer.

    I finally ordered and recieved my new Arrow PD exhaust. Looking forward to getting it installed but Curious about what I call exhaust tape that is very similar to putty sort of. Does anyone use it over here? I notice a lot of folks using exhaust paste but that looks to be a messy setup. Any...

    Hello AT Fans! Can you identify this aftermarket exhaust on my XRV750 RD04? It was installed on an AT I purchased and I am unable to locate any stamps or reference to an aftermarket manufacture. It sounds really nice on the V-twin. Any thoughts or guess? Thanks in advance!
  6. Transalp
    Hello, I'm fitting Wirth progressive fork springs to a 2006 Transalp and wanted to know if I should discard the washers which are acting as spacers when I fit the new springs. I believe the Transalp didn't have spacers installed from stock? The bike is second hand and this is the first time I've...

    The question has been raised here about build quality on the Montessa built models. I've recently been buying NOS parts for my fleet and they come in the original packaging. I have found that all chassis parts come in bags that say "made in Spain", but all engine parts come in bags that say...

    Hola! mY '04 TA backfires and pops when I let off the throttle. Just just started. This winter I rebuilt the vacuum actuated fuel valve and I installed a Scotoiler for the rear chain. Both of these pull vacuum from the nipple on the rear cylinder inlet. The bike never backfired before I...

    Hi, question regarding camshaft installation and ignition timing: Is it possible to get the Camshaft installed 360 degees wrong or does the transalp fire on every TDC? Given the assumption that the front and rear cylinder are correct installed in relation to each other (Rear (RT) 232 degrees...

    Forum Members, Hello and happy holidays. A *********** rear shock was installed on my 1991 RD04 AT when I purchased it. I am curious to learn if anyone is aware of *********** or the reputation of their shocks. I assume the company may have been acquired, renamed or closed. There is very...

    Searched but didn't find any thread about this, sure there is the "Product Reviews" but.. well it's easier to tell what you bought than to do a review :blob8: Rules? Not really, if you bought the product today, last week, month or year doesn't really matters. Sure, it's an advantage if you...

    Hi, today my left rear indicator just broke off, i guess due to aged rubber.... I got replacement but how is this bloody thing installed, do I have to disassemble the complete tail section? I found a plastic cover that contains the indicators connections but how to fiddle the cables thru...

For the bikes ride and power spread its made a big difference a much more lively bike to ride,I would...

    Anyone used these? With the cylinder head locating tab in the correct postion they don't seem to allow the clamp/clip with the tab to line up properly. It ends up fouling on the valve cover and slanting diagonally across the rubber. There are two different clamps and I have them installed the...

    It'd be interesting to hear different folk's views . . . Are you happy with the stock configuration or are you searching for the perfect setup? Have you done Dave's carb mods? K&N vs Honda air filter? Anyone installed a dynojet kit? Airbox mods? After market pipe? pumper carb? cheers Philippo
