As the title suggests I am the new owner of a 03 xr400, which to say the least...needs some work! my biggest hurdle at this time is the gear shift assembly (just the past that slides on and off) was broken and the previous owner decided to weld it bad on to the point that you can...

Carb was fixed easy enough, broke the choke but had a spare, still with the crap...
  7. Africa Twin
    Hi, failed the MOT yesterday :cry: due to uneven braking at the front. I can feel that the braking is uneven (as you apply slight pressure to come to a stop it feels like the disc is warped) but didn't really feel it was an issue. The MOT man did... So...what to do? I removed both discs and...

  20. Africa Twin
    Last July the AT let me down a mile and a half from home. I rode to the local BP for a pastie, and then the bike wouldn’t start. Nothing.
