  3. XL
    Hi all A couple of months ago I bought a 1984 XL600R which seems to have had a hard life. The idea being to strip it down, clean it up and sort it out so that I have a decent looking bike that I can enjoy getting dirty again. My latest problem has got me stumped and I'm hoping someone will be...
  4. Dominator / FMX
    I have been running mine, testing etc, with out any fairing or sump guard and I like it Bike still gets amazingly hot and I can feel more heat on my legs than before I am hoping that's due to more airflow wafting around the engine I am thinking a simple nose cone cowl only would be ample for...

  12. Africa Twin
    I did this years back on my XBR500 and dont remember any real problems. Are there any AT weirdnesses to bear in mind or is it just pop the front wheel and brakes off, drop the fork legs, bars off and remove the steering head. Then drift out the top and bottom races and refit new ones. One...

  15. Chatter
    So I was driving my 11-plate Ibiza into deepest darkest Essex last night, blindly following the Sat Nav to go and collect some bike tyres I had won on eBay. As you know it had been raining all day, and I came to a road that appeared to be partially flooded. I decided it was not too deep and...
  16. Transalp
    I have just got a TA700, with a standard seat on it I'm 5 foot 11 inches tall, long arms and legs. I rode a TA 600 for many years and loved it. I can't seem to get comfortable on the TA700, The bars seem too far away and too low down. Hence its more like a "lean forward" sports riding...
  17. Africa Twin
    A few weeks ago I had the headset bearings replaced at a workshop. They replaced the old set with the expensive tapered set from Wemoto. But even though there was a fantastic improvement in handling, there is still a faint knock when hitting small hard bumps, and I can feel it in the steering...

  19. Varadero
    Greetings from Blackpool! I've just bought a 2009 Varadero (non-ABS) and I love it - I'll put some thoughts below but first I've got a question. I'm 5' 10" and find the height just on the point of being challenging; I can get both feet down, but not flat unless I drop the preload right down...
