  1. Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    hey guys, just bought my Conti TKC80 yesterday. I will fit them on Honda FMX650 supermoto. They are 40/60 road/offroad. I chose them, because I want to take my FMX to the gravelroads, fields, etc, but I live in city, and also need to drive on asphalt. Also only those tyres had 120 and 150 widths...
  2. Transalp
    So after 31,500 miles the headlight bulb dip filament gave up on my 650 the first thing that's ever gone wrong with the bike :D I found out when I switched on the ignition thirty five miles away from home in the pitch black :( and so the beam adjuster came in really handy as it let me lower the...
  3. Dominator / FMX
    HI guys. This is my rear wheel broken. I can't tell for sure if it broke before or just after I bought the bike. I can't find any other used FMX wheel anywhere on the internet.

    Out & about early on Thursday for a bimble on the hottest day of the year so far. First stop at Doc's for a repeat prescription, second stop Tollesbury for a snack - little independent butcher with a mad glint in eye and blood splatters on his apron that was selling sausage roll by the length...
  9. Transalp
    I've just been checking the valve clearances on my XL700 and I've hit an issue. The rear cylinder was all okay but the front was so out that you couldn't even insert a 0.05 feeler gauge. I adjusted the valves to the right settings and checked several times that they were correct before...
  10. Travel
    Hi are there any GPS experts on the forum? I am planning a trip around the coast of Ireland this year, I'm plotting my route using the on line satmap xpedition software and downloading as GPX Tracks. All well and good so far, after sorting the glitch with satmaps format I import them to...
  11. Dominator / FMX
    My '99 Dommie is getting close to 48,000 miles, I've had it 4 years and about 12,000 of those miles. It's due for an oil and filter change which I can do myself but I wonder if it's time for more complex work, like getting the valve clearances checked / adjusted, which I couldn't do myself. What...

    Well I've been getting my bike ready for my trip through France and Spain via the Pyrenees (out) and the Alps (back) and I'm beginning to think I'm jinxed! Got myself new tyres (Anakee II) for the trip. Took me about 3 hours to get the old tyres (Tourance) off and the new ones on. Then could I...

    collecting used/not working bike parts to create a birthday present for my bike-mad boyfriend. He used to own a honda varadero, so preferably a speedo/the dash from that would be perfect, but from any other bike will do! Thanks
  16. Africa Twin
    Have been sending several emails over the last few weeks to Honda about my hunt for a counter / output shaft RD07A: 23220-MAY-000 and received phone call from them yesterday to say that this part is now officially discontinued and Honda have no plans to do another run of them ! The guy from...
  17. Africa Twin
    Any one been fiddling yet I went out this morning for a run but froze so came back early and decided to adjust a few things. first was the throttle free play there's far too much for my liking the two demonstrators were the same that was an easy adjustment, the gear lever was a bit low another...

  19. Dominator / FMX
    I've been restoring these Dommies for a while now and the biggest pain in the arse is the Aluminium engine brackets. They're all rotten, perished and degraded now. And from Honda DISCONTINUED ! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH :( The ones Honda made are crap anyway. Low grade aluminium...
  20. Dominator / FMX
    I have been scouring the net to find a carb needle and jets to set up a Keihin FCR 41 carb I found on ebay. Allens dont have the needle and the only places I could find one is in the states which will take forever to get here. I found one in Holland but they want €40 for it. :mad::mad::mad: Any...
