    The reason I ask is I emailed via the "contact us" page about trying to get the "ebay/gumtree part one thread" closed (so people don't keep replying), but never got a reply ???

    Background: In 2007 I was lucky enough to find a 1988 XRV650 in Oregon, USA with ~43k km on the clock. I bought it and took it to college with me thinking it'd be a great project bike to work on inmy down time. Welp, turns out university requires time and effort (Mechanical Engineering) and the...

    Another tyre question I/m afraid. I have been scouring threads and other forums for the answers. After this, I make up my mind. The RD03 is on army special front and Mitas C-02 rear. On the road, rear squirms and follows any imperfection and front at 60 + feels airborne. I want to run a more...

    I got new tyres fitted today (Anakee 3's) and, after putting the wheels back on the bike I thought I would go for a wee run to scrub them in a bit. As it was so warm I just wore my denim jeans, boots, textile jacket etc thinking it would be OK as I was only going to do about 50 miles or so at a...

    Ahoy there I'm the proud owner of @ (RD07a, year of mfg 2000) from Saint-Petersburg, Russia. She's pretty stock at the moment (except some minor improvements). It's a great bike for almost every purpose but still there is a lot of room for improvements. I wish there would be some more...

    Hi all, I'm running a Mitas E-08 rear tyre, relatively new. However in the wet the tyre looses traction under moderate acceleration and feels very unstable on roundabouts. Has anyone experienced this? Is there a 'best' tyre for on-road commuting for wet weather? Many thanks, Sam.

    I've been using my Alp as a bit of a mule this summer - a moderate amount of use, but not much in the way of washing and fettling. My approach is to slavver the thing in ACF-50 which collects the dirt, but makes it easier to wash off (eventually). I decided this was the day for A Good Clean. I...

    Hi All, Here are some comments on my new purchase a 2007 650 Transalp. I have a few general questions at the bottom if anyone can enlighten me! I got the TA to replace my KLR650 Cmodel which was stolen. Comming straight from the KLR most of my comments are a comparsion against it. Prior to the...

    Keeping with the tradition of this forum of having dodgy knees I am now putting in a bid for the second worst knee of the forum. I can't beat Boboneleg's KTM extension but I think I have knocked Sharribee into third place. I finally had my knee operation on Monday. It turned out to have been...

    Went to the Stockport Harley Davidson place yesterday and had a test ride of a couple of H-Ds. I figured I'd been slagging them off for about a quarter of a century without ever riding one, so it was high time I acquired a more authoritative opinion. Shying away from the worst excesses of...

    Hi all, I have a NX650 (1998? red on red) that has an issue that I need assistance with. Hopefully fellow NXers can assist saving me money on the local bike shop's hit and miss method of locating a fault. When riding with moderate throttle the engine stops momentarily - tacho drops to 0 for a...

    After our Dobermann left this earth, almost 2 years ago, we have been without a dog in the house. Now we are planning to get a new. Considering all pros and cons, we have decided to get a Border Terrier. Not exactly the same as a Dobermann :lol: , but we'll give it a try. At least it will...

    Hey guys, hoping some of you can help me out here with a bit of advice to a prospective owner. I'm new, so please be gentle! I want an AT, ideally I want to spend about £2500, am hoping that'll get me a 1999/2000ish bike with moderate mileage in reasonable condition. I'm not new to bikes...

    ...coming most likely from the chain under moderate accellerating. It sounds as if the chain is vibrating on its sprockets (my grandpa's false teeth while eating an apple sprang to mind, it is that sort of sound). I have checked the chain's tension which is perfectly fine. If the chain wasn't...
