    Can anyone help either with a diagram of the breather hoses, or tell me if I'm missing a bit. The Haynes manual is not that great and I have a feeling I've got a bit missing. Both rocker covers have pipes that go into what I think is some sort of emission control valve, that has a pipe that...

    I recently came across a good deal on a 1990 XR200R but the engine needs completely rebuilt. The previous owner didn't know anything about engines and it shows. He must have tried to rebuild the engine at one point and really messed it up. The timing chain was very worn and was rubbing in the...

    Hello all, Haven't been around lately (been too busy, alas) so I thought I would pop in with one of those annoying open-ended questions with no real answer. Oh Joy! ( PS - I think this is the right place, as it isn't an actual "for sale" ad or anything, but if the admins think it should be...

    Hi and welcome. My seat amongst others was uphlostered by GA Wells & Son. As you say its probably not worth sending it to them, you need to find somewhere near to you. Any automotive upholsterer should be able to do it. When GA Wells did mine they took the cover off. Drew a pen line taking off...
