After about 3 years, I'm about to kick off the build of my SLR650 scrambler/tracker.
I'm looking to get a 17" front wheel & am looking at fitting a 120/70/17 up front with 150/70/17 rear Continental TKC80's.
Now after some research, I'm not sure if these will fit on the current wheel...

Not started it for a few weeks, had become more and more difficult to start cold, and now - won't start at all
Had lost interest in it lately, now even more so
So, after trying to start for a while, (turns over fine), checked spark - nothing
I have in the last year or so replaced...
Hi to all,
I would like to ask what the recommended valve clearances for FMX 650 are. My net research gave me two outcomes: (1) 0.10 (intake) and 0.12 (exhaust) +-0.02 (like in XR650L, Dominator etc) , and (2) 0.10 +-0.02 for both intake and exhaust valves (see here...
Bike was running perfect and I decided to fit rugged roads snail cam chain adjusters which only involves taking long bolt out etc. Went out on bike today and brake performance not good. The rear brake used to be very good and I didnt think I lost a spacer but what have I done wrong?
My friend and neighbor only had one key for his xl125v 2002 and has lost it,he has searched everywhere but no luck,he has a very active toddler who may have chucked it,anyway can anyone tell me where the key number is located on this model,would it be on the inside of the petrol cap?under...
Hello. The wife and I will be setting out for our first long distance trip on the bike. We originally planned on going to Ireland too, but have cut it down. We're going from Dover to Windsor tomorrow afternoon and then from Windsor to Lancaster on the 15th. On the 16th we'll be bumping around...
Just tried to post and lost the thread, here goes the second attempt.
Have some good parts to go on
Can this be cleaned up in the frame? I really want to keep the engine in the frame.
Go gentle on me. I'm no expert, basic tools, small space to work in and a tight budget...
Currently building a street tracker from my old FMX.
Just re assembling it and yesterday had all the idiot and horn working. Come back to it today and have lost the horn and neutral light ?
Can’t find any duff wiring etc and visually checked the fuses.
Any suggestions ?
I have a 78 XL100 i had running last season. I had the engine out this winter to put new valve seals in etc. and have recently put the engine back on the bike to fire it up for the season. I noticed it had spark at first but then suddenly no spark. I decided to check for power from the...
i have lost fuel tap lever. new one is 15 plus delivery. does any one have other alternative?
I have read that someone made a tube connection to handelbar so can be easier switched when needed..
The first thing to say is that my Dommie is very much a winter hack, ridden in all weathers, rarely cleaned, not a concours show bike by any stretch... so it’s not a massive surprise to see some corrosion on an 18 year old bike. Question is: what to do about it!
The pic attached shows a hole in...
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 everybody, and greetings from Finland! I have been reading a lot in this forums before, but today I decided to make my own profile. (Sorry my english)
Today happened something that has happened to me once before. I drove my XL650V in hard sidewind. I think I can call it a storm. In the...
Evening all... I have a strange thing going on with my bike.
I lost the speedo etc so have replaced the plastic drive wheel on the front wheel and all is turning nicely and the speedo is now working again at the correct speed. However, the digital trip meter seems to have had a mardy fit and...
