  1. Rear shock - A bit too soft?

    Transalp
    Hi. I have had my 99' TA 600 for a while now, and I want to make my bike a little less soft, and also try to lift the rear a bit. Is this possible just by modifying the original parts? Has anyone done this before? In the front I added a few mm. of fork-oil, and changed the viscosity. That...
  2. XL500 Problems

    XL
    Hi there, I have an a 1982 xl500s trail bike. Engine has just been rebuilt - starts ok but runs erratically at low revs and gets very hot. It has had new valves, new air cut off valve in carburettor. No air leaks that I can see, carb has been cleaned, jets etc. Running out of ideas, any...

  4. Wanted: Tripmaster case

    For Sale / Wanted
    Hi, A couple of years ago, my tripmaster died and I then sold the casing for it as it was still in mint condition. This week I got my hands on a new tripmaster, however, the casing is broken, and looks awful and leaks water when raining. I'm therefore looking for a casing to a tripmaster...
  5. Leaking float needle

    Africa Twin
    Hi All, Recently put new needles into carbs in the hope of resolving a flooding and leak issue on the left carb of my RD07. Didn't work, carb still leaks:sad11:. Is there any (other) way to try get the needle to seat without leaking? I'm dubious about trying anything abrasive. Cheers Steve

  7. Fuel Tank Repair in or near London?

    Africa Twin
    Anyone know of a good place to have my tank repaired in or around London? It only had the smallest of leaks which I think was on the seam, I've since used a tank sealant that I haven't tried yet but as I've now stripped the whole bike back to a frame it seems a little bit of a bodge to not have...
  8. Oil consumption xl600v

    Transalp
    1994 model, 39000km on the clock, it has used 0,7 liter oil on 1000 km No visual leaks (except the carb insulator rubber, see other post, which has stopped leaking) I think this seems like a huge amount. White exhaust this morning which went away after 2-3 minutes. Any ideas???
  9. Leaks, a little.

    XL
    This doesn't look too bad, but 1 should I be worrying about it. 2 how cheap and/or easy is it to fix? XL600R 84 vintage.
  10. TA XL700AV oil leaks

    Transalp
    Hi all, my TA is dripping oil on garage floor :(. One drip comes from the larger diameter of the three vent pipes and also from near the oil filter (but not from the filter or its seal face). To think I traded my Bonnie (that never droped any oil in three years) in for the TA and also my 1976...
  11. AT Low compression but no leaks in cylinder/valves

    Transalp
    Maybe one of you guys know an answer...just to make sure I cover all relevant forums...my compression is 800kPa (should be between 1100-1500). Putting compressed air in the cylinders shows NO leaks, 100%! Pull in lower revs is good, but difficult to go higher than 140kph. Fuel consumption is...
  12. Low compression but no leaks in cylinder/valves

    Africa Twin
    Now here is a question: my compression is 800kPa (should be between 1100-1500). Putting compressed air in the cylinders shows NO leaks, 100%! Pull in lower revs is good, but difficult to go higher than 140kph. Fuel consumption is 6L/100km (sorry, don't know differently). Fuel settings fine...
  13. Oil Leaks

    Transalp
    Has anyone ever had any problems with oil leaks? My 650 has started depositing small amounts of the black stuff overnight, although when I dip the oil to check the level the oil on the dip stick is still clear. It's an 06 650 with 5500 miles on the clock.
