    Looking to replace all the fuel lines on my RD03 as a couple more leaking a bit nowadays. Rugged roads has 4or5 sizes. What is most common I would need? I plan on buying some bulk lengths. They have 4.5, 5.5, 7.3 and 8mm ID. Mine are so old going to be hard to determine sizes. I know I have used...

    Hello all Proud owner of a RD7A I'm suffering for an excessive oil lose, I fill the reservoir up to the max mark on the dipstick and 200 miles later the oil is half gone The oil appears to be leaking from one of the overflow tubes whilst parked on the side stand (although this anecdotal...

    I had a look for another thread to tack this onto but they all seem quite old, so I'll ask on a new thread. My exhaust is leaking from the collector to tail section join. I'm pretty certain it's just the tail section that's rusted out but though I'd ask if the 650 collector outlet pipe has a...

    When putting my bike back together I found the fuel tap is leaking when in the off position, I had lost my patience in the excitement of hoping it was going to start, to open up the tap and see what was wrong. So anyway the bike fired up as normal :p but it looks like I have a sticking float...

    Hello, I changed my air filter last night to a new K&N one (old one was grubby!) When removing the tank, I removed all of the hoses / fuel sensor cable. Where the smallest tube on the right side of the bike attached, I had fuel coming out. Is this normal? I was sure that no fuel would come out...

    Hi there, I'm after a large tank and possibly a rally fairing for an xr250. I'm in north yorkshire and have cash waiting. Condition not really important aslong as it's not leaking. Willing to travel to pick it up so let me know what you have. Thanks, Nathan

    Hi guys, Is it unreasonable to ask a seller to show me the output shaft on an AT prior to purchase? I've come across a mint example that will require an MOT as part of the purchase process. I've asked to see the output shaft during the MOT process - is that an unreasonable request? And once...

    Before I go spending £30 plus postage on a braided hose for my rear brake, I was wondering if I could use the piece of braided rubber oil pipe that was left over from fixing the line from my oil tank to the cylinder head to replace the hose from the rear brake resevoir to the master cylinder...

    Hi guys I have a leaking in my 45L African Queens tank for my Africa Twin. It's on the place where the tank rests in the frame. Pretty stupid idea if you ask me, the thing looks like it should be solid here. Anyone has any ideas about how to fix it? The tank is made of fiberglass. Thanks .

    Hi guys. I swapped my old CB550 café racer for a SLR650 today. I like the ride so far, the CB killed my back at long trips, so its nice to sit upwards again. :) I'll have to fix the fork seals since it's leaking oil, but maybe there is more than that, and therefore I would loooove to have...

    Well my radiator has obviously been hit by a stone and I've got 2-3 pin prick holes that are leaking. What has anyone used to fix this problem? I was going to just buy some Radweld but I've read a few comments saying that that will clog up a bike radiator as the tones are finer that the ones...
  19. XR
    Hi I had the seals replaced on my xr yesterday. I put front end back together pumped the forks up and down - and fork oil squirted out of the bottom of the RH leg - from the big hex socket cover. It's up on the stand now and is not leaking when not under compression. Suggestions?

    Evening All, I appear to have a small oil leak I've just had a quick look and I think it's leaking somewhere on the front cylinder left hand side, I first thought it might be the valve cover gasket but that felt ok/dry when I ran my finger along it. Here's a couple of pics showing where the...
