    Spotted on't'interweb ... “So, around your house you’ve probably got those handy liquid soap dispensers, the ones with the little push pump on the top. Well don’t throw them away when finished because that pump is absolutely perfect to bleed brakes with. Simply attach a tube to the bleed nipple...

    94 Transalp. Been stood a while and prepping her for winter abuse. Thought it was cables so popped throttle off but even with the cables loose it still stuck on full - after a tug on the return it snaps back. I've oiled the cables plenty - there was oil drippping out at the carb end so it got...

    Greetings from Denmark. My son passed his test for a motorbike today so as soon as we can get the insurance and registration sorted he will be let loose on this. He has spent the last six months getting it ready and I need to follow him for a while to make...

    It's the pattern "Slinky Glide" one, and it seems to be a spot-on cable with smooth action and slide. It's replacing a Honda OEM one, which looks pretty much identical but was getting a bit "sticky", so I'm questioning OEM Honda here as much as pattern cables. There isn't any obvious...

    Hello, I recently bought an LM which someone had been using as a field bike. I've pulled out the engine and found there are a couple of cracks in the cylinder head, between the spark plug thread and the valves, as well as a couple of loose valve seats. Firstly, does anyone have one that they...

    Having recently replaced the Bridgy BT45 tyres on my Dommie with a more dirt-friendly Conti Escape, I took a detour off road today. Nothing strenuous, I don't have the skills for it, just some marked Byways around Hertfordshire. Good fun, and a useful escape route if I'm ever a fugitive on the...

  8. Africa Twin
    Latest rebuild is up and running will post some pics soon. I picked up some intiminators (cheers Ray) they are fitted as instructed with 5W fork oil, the front end now feels very stiff. I expected to loose a lot of the dive on braking and this has happened however the ride is now much less...

    Hi all, Yes, I know the clutch rattling is a very common theme, but on mine I hear a god-awful rattle when the bike is on the side stand. When placed upright or slightly right leaning, the sound goes away. The only thing I can think of is the chain driving the oil pump is loose enough to rattle...

    Hello guys quick question. My front got loose yoke. I decided to change bearings for my rd04. Bought new ones but they aren't ball bearings like in my bike but in description was exactly to fit my bike. Do they really fit?

    Hi Guys, Can any one confirm the following for me please: Honda NX 650 front disc, what are the nut sizes? I think 14mm but the spanner seems a bit lose so want to double check. I have only tried one of the nuts and it already feels like its going to round off. I also tried to loosen the...
  13. Transalp
    Hi, My XR600V has started to make a "clonking" sound from somewhere around the front sprocket / swing arm pivot. It comes irregularly but I think I only hear it upon acceleration from low speed (low gears), never when the bike is standing still idling so I am quite sure it is related to the...
  14. Varadero
    I have a strange noise with my 2008 Varadero XL1000. Usually (but nothing consistent) when I come to a stop I will hear a noise just before I come to a complete stop. Sounds like maybe a loose clutch lever, or maybe a shifter lever, or maybe a relay click sound or maybe something hitting the...
  15. Transalp
    Hi! Not a trained eye, but my front sprocket looks worn...Should I change this(Rear and Chain looks ok)? If so, how can I loosen the bolts without the chain on the bike :( Thanks
  16. Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    I'm sure this will have come up before, I'm not an off road type rider I prefer the black stuff under my wheels not loose brown stuff. With that in mind which is the best all-rounder tyre, I've got my eyes on the BATTLAX BT-45V / BT-45. I know everyone has their favourites and I have had...

    Guys, I've been after the answer to this for years - Can someone with an RD07a and a centre stand please tell me what the chain tension is with the bike on the side stand straight after it is adjusted on the centre stand, I'm positive mine is too loose - yes, I know loose is better than tight...

    Hi Folks First time poster, been lurking around for a while :). Here's my question Just bought myself a 2013 700v transalp 8000 miles with dealer service history, great bike drives great but has 1 wee thing that drives me mad, There's a weird noise coming from the air cleaner box ? (that kind...
  19. Dominator / FMX
    Hi Just wondering if you guys have come across this and found the fault. Whilst riding and just chugging along, that's just off throttle in the wrong gear, there's a slow rattle from the front, could be under the tank area, like a loose plate bouncing about. I've checked the exhaust guard and...

    Afternoon All, After a years ownership and use I got half way up High Button yesterday and fried my clutch. When I got it back, cleaned and stripped there is a horrible burnt smell, blackened plates and destroyed friction linings ripped up, melted and fused with friction material bits loose in...
