  7. Transalp Fuel Tank Overflow Corroded

    Transalp
    Hi All, I fiilled up with fuel the other night, and immediately fuel started coming out of one of the draining pipes at the bottom of the bike. Thought initially it was a stuck float in the carb, but it turns out the drain pipe (for when you overfill the tank) that runs from the tank cap...

Does anyone...

  13. Changing the coolant on a 700 - a little trick that may be of use

    Transalp
    There are times I'd like to line up a few of Honda's designers and pelt them with cannonballs made of their own excrement. Sometimes I wonder what they were thinking, or if they were thinking. One of these is the idea that you have to disassemble the exhaust, including headers, to do the...

    Chatter
    How to delete a google apps script service?? Muggins here thought that a script to dump all the attachment files received to my Gmail account into a Google Drive folder seemed like a really good idea. In fact, it is a really great idea, but for the fact it doesn't work. Every day I get an...
  19. Vara fuel hoses

    Varadero
    A word of warning for vara owners who remove their fuel tanks! When I came to refit the tank I fitted the two fuel hoses (same sizes) to the wrong outlets.
