  10. Choke, for dummies

    Transalp
    Guys I have just landed in Germany and picked up my 01 alp. I have no idea which way the choke lever is for on and off. It seems to make no difference to the idle speed. I think off is away from the rider and on is pull towards the rider?? Given there is also a petrol smell when the bike is...

  16. Transporting an XR400 by trailer long distances - front forks?

    XR
    Hiya, Thought I'd check with those who've done it before. I'm going to be trailering my XR400 long distances (London to Isle of Man) and was thinking that ratcheting down the front end on the trailer to secure it might not be best for the forks and fork seals over long distances. Having had a...
