  1. Varadero
    But now that there's a big Vara in the garage I've taken to lurking here... Evenin' all, not really one for forums but thought it polite to say hello after trawling through a load of threads here. Just become the owner of an '01, which is sitting alongside the TA whilst I decide what to do. As...
  2. I'd like to introduce myself....................
    Hello! after a long search for a touring bike with off road capability I settled on an old TransAlp 650 - 2001. (lots of helpful advise from Tramp on the way...) which give me some spare cash to mod it. Got to say this has been a great place to lurk and do research and I am looking seriously and...
  3. Chatter
    If I walked into a BT shop and took £25 out of their till I would expect to be arrested for thieving. So why are BT able to take £25 out of my daughters bank account and totally ignore her pleas for its return. Her attempts to contact them just result in running up telephone charges whilst she...
  4. XR
    Just joined, normally lurk at thumpertalk, but 99% of them are yanks. Eurgh! Got a 96 XR400R, Hotcam Stage 2, Mikuni BST40 carb on it. Geared for road. 22 Years old, this is like my 10th bike and by far the best (since changing the carb at least!). Tea? :thumbleft:
  5. I'd like to introduce myself....................
    as an admin on one of Daves other forums (BMW F650 Forums) I thought it was time I stuck my head round the door to see what all the fuss is about ;) I probably won't post much on here but lurk around reading all the interesting stuff, unless of course I can be persuaded away from the dark side...
  6. I'd like to introduce myself....................
    In the past I've had quite a few Yamaha XT's, but have been hearing a lot of good stuff about the XR650L. I rode my XT's from London to Australia and from the tip of Argentina to Miami. I'm after an XR650L to ride from London to Cape Town. I already know I'm up against it buying one in the...
  7. I'd like to introduce myself....................
    Hi there, Just thought I should not lurk but post, just passed my CBT and bought a XL125V, picked it up on Saturday and was out in the glorious sunshine on Sunday (I love it!!!). Looking forward to hopefully passing my DAS so I can get those L plates off!! My husband and I have a couple of...
  8. Africa Twin
    I've finally got around to trying to sort the problem of a seized rear caliper. In preparation I bought a set of genuine Honda seals, but looking at the horrors that lurk within, I think a whole lot more spending is required! The pad retaining pin is well past it's use-by date and has welded...
  9. Travel
    SWMBO has kindly consented to give me a pass-out in early to mid September, so I am looking... again, at a trip to the Pyrenees and/or the Alps. The dates are a bit vague at present, as I cannot go until I have finished Harvest, but I hope that this will be around the 7-10th of the month. Just...
  10. Africa Twin
    Just wondering what to check for poor mpg that my bike seems to suffer from. It has a straight through after market pipe, no baffle. Standard aircleaner (was thinking about getting a foam or K&N one, would that help to a degree?) Its running very rich as the plugs are quite sooty. Was...
  11. Transalp
    Just noticed the 'views' numbers for the 2 threads. Thread 'Transalp 750' = 1,763 Thread 'New Transalp' = 5,416. cheers Rob :sign2::newb: :newb: :wav: :wav: :wav: :wav: :newb: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :confused5: :confused5: :confused5: :sign2: :salute: :hal :wink: :ky: :occasion9...
  12. Transalp
    Hi, I wonder if there's anyone out there could help me with this. I've a Tranalp - a 1999 XL600X that I bought a month or two ago but has a restrictor kit fitted. I removed the tank, seat and air expansion box today and then set about taking off the carbs to get the inlet rubbbers off. They are...

  14. Africa Twin
    When I put my headlights on I only get one headlight on dipped but both come on when Main is selected,is this normal as I thought both lo beams come on and both hi when selected...both new bulbs of the same type.:lurk:
  15. Dominator / FMX
    I guess that most that own a dominator will have to admit the fueling could be better. How about having one with fuel injection. Do you think you could remove a system from a bike of a similar type and size and fit to a dommi. It could then be tweaked. Next question What bike of a similar size...
  16. Ride Reports and Pictures
    fark me what a trip !!! :D :clap: :freaky: I havent been down to the Island for the GP since 97, it never fits in with work, which is a constant source of irritation:cry . A couple of weeks ago I checked my diary and it was clear so I accosted my boss and said I needed 4 days off or I'd die...
  17. Other Bikes
    I guess this is where I am destined to lurk now I've went to the dark side? :oops: History of my Triallies for the new guys, after several years of off road with Yamahas, Hondas, Suzukis, Ossa's and Bultacos I saw and fell in love with an @T! Bought my first RD04 12yrs ago, since then four...
