  1. XL600 master cylinders - is there more than one size?

    XL Technical Specs
    Hi guys, Front brake on my 1985 XL600 was getting spongy so after trying the obvious brake bleed I've order a kit online to do the master cylinder, but it's about 1mm too small in the old diameter measurements. I then ordered a second kit (from a different place) and was sent the same kit. The...

  7. HONDA XL 250R 1986. MD11: Broken kickstart

    Hello All, This is a new member here to ask for advice. Sadly, am unable to offer advice as the bike is my son's and I've just started taking an interest. Hope that's OK. The kickstart broke recently and it seems difficult to find a replacement outside the USA and for big bucks. I don't have...
  8. Just saying hello

    I'd like to introduce myself....................
    Hi all I've been riding bikes over 40 years and have had a very strange assortment in that time including CZs, MZs, Royal Enfield, BMWs, a few British bikes and 3 or 4 Japanese thumpers. I've just bought a 1999 SLR650 to replace my Yamaha SR400 as it is kickstart only and hurts my knee too much...

  10. Kickstarter?

    Dominator / FMX
    Is it possible to fit the Kickstarter from an early NX onto an FX/SLR? It looks like a change of clutch cover is all that's needed, along with the kickstarter shaft and its associated gubbins.
  11. Hello there.

  12. Can't get XR started!

    Hey guys, I bought a 2000 XR400 a few weeks ago and always had difficulty starting it, it would take me a good few minutes to get it going and once running it seemed to run fine. I've since checked all the valve clearances (3 were in spec but 1 of the exhaust valves was really loose so have...
  13. Can you fit a kickstart to any NX650?

    Dominator / FMX
    I have sold my Dominator but still have a few engine parts left. One set I thought might be useful is a complete engine side casing, kickstart drive and kickstart for someone who wants to convert their NX650 without a kickstart to one that has it. I'm pretty sure that the engine cases will fit...
  14. 125 rattle once warmed up

    Hi all! Not the first post I'd hoped to start with, but still :) I've had my 2008 125 Varadero for a couple of years without issue, recently though if the engine heats up, it'll get a hideous sounding rattle at around 2k-4k revs. The rattle doesn't seem to be a rhythmic ticking, it literally...
  15. Engine heating up too much?

    Africa Twin
    Hey, The troubles (or at least what seems to be like one) after my Reg/Rec cooked itself and my battery seem to continue. After I changed the RR, fuel pump for Facet one (and now try to fix the lazy tacho), it looks to me as if also the engine is now much hotter than before. I compare...

  18. i thought dommies were "old school"

    Dominator / FMX
    seems a bit OTT for a dominator but i suppose it would be cool to play around with the mapping. (until it blows up)
