Stinking hot weather all week-end &...
  5. More fettling of the XR today

    Done some more fettling, but was actually planning to change the tyres over to the Michelin AC10's. Got the front wheel off and noticed that the left hand side axle clamp bit was cracked right through. It had been done for some time as it was really dirty. Had this problem on my old 1987...

  12. strange cold tickover problem

    Africa Twin
    Something strange has happened to my AT. Suddenly. Starting it from cold, it has always insisted on full choke (won't idle on part choke for more than 4-5 seconds, ever) until it's warm enough (minute or two in winter, 15-20 seconds on a hot day) to idle with no choke at all. It still demands...
