It was a nice feeling too get a pass without any advisories today after I did a part rebuild last year with limited mechanical knowledge, thanks to everyone who pitched in with help when I needed it.
The guy was gushing over my bike, gave me a warm feeling of pride :D
Something not right. Have checked fuel pump is working and fuel is all OK. Balanced the carbs very recently so should not be that. Feels mechanical rather than fuel.
Engine was rebuilt 6,000 miles ago so what might need checking and adjusting?
Only looking for reassurance really. Just got a 2005 TA, and there seems to be a bit of a mechanical ' whine ' on closed throttle/engine braking. Pretty sure it's normal, but my last bike was loud and I never heard all the engine noises, so didn't worry.
Cheers in advance peeps !!
Hi first post here, im currently looking for either of the above bikes to start green laning. It must be in good mechanical condition however im not too fussed about cosmetics! It must also be within about 40 miles of amesbury, wiltshire.
If you have anything of interest let me know!
I've been trying to fit a staintune pipe to my 'alp and boy oh boy....
anyway, the basic problem seems to be that there's a bit too much pipe coming out of the collector box. This means that the holes won't line up properly,so....
I'm tempted to cut a bit of the pipe from the cat off...
