    Transalp
    Well not sure what this is. The bike starts up great nearly every time and runs well. But a twice now, it has started up, drove for about 2 miles, stopped to go in a shop for 5 mins.

  6. 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...

  11. Help Please... Transalp intermittent fault...

    Transalp
    This problem is going to drive me nuts !!! Hindsight being a wonderful thing, I suspect the nice policeman that I bought my Transalp 600 from, was being economical with the truth when he said, Oh, just now and again, it might cough and splutter, It’s because I have four bikes and don’t...
