  1. Sore backside ?

    Hi folks just back from my first long distance tour 2500 miles around the coast of Ireland one thing that has left an impression on me is the discomfort I have been in due to the shape of the seat on my 650 Transalp.

  2. Rough running?

    Mechanical Advice
    Hi I'm experiencing some rough running whilst the engine is ticking over I think it's referred to as hunting, it also seems to miss fire occasionally on a steady throttle at around 2000 rpm with a soft sort of wet fart backfire on the overrun. Can anyone put there finger on a reason for these...

  8. DR350 Oil Leak

    Hi all, I'm new to the DR350 scene so please be gentle with what will I'm be some stupid questions! My '92 DR350 has a really bad oil leak from the magneto/generator cover. I took the cover off and sure enough there was a piece of gasket missing about an inch long. My question is, should there...
  9. I'm back, but no Africa Twin this time

    I'd like to introduce myself....................
    Well after a good few years away from bikes, I've taken the plunge and got myself one. This time round it's a DR350 which needs a bit of work. I used to have an RD03, which for some foolish reason I sold (ended up buying a pushchair with the money!) and have regretted since. So that's me saying...

  16. Neil Harris Motorcycles - NO

    Recommended Dealers/Service Providers/Campsites
    Just bought a TA from them and was willing to accept the spray paint on the exhaust and wheels to make it look nicer. I'm hoping that they have at least treated the rust beneath the paint. BUT. Mysteriously the left radiator is now leaking. They put it though an MOT and it passed np. Shame they...
