  1. SLR, FX, FMX Swing-Arm

    Dominator / FMX
    I’m pretty sure all the above use the same basic frame, so the dimensions i’m after should be the same. Could someone with a Swing-Arm from one of these measure the front pivot width. That would be the outer width, i.e. the width required in the frame and also the inside width, i.e. the width...

  4. valve cover gasket thickness

    XR
    Hey guys It's been a while since I posted as I've had a difficult year emotionally etc, but alas, I have a question of an XR400 nature. I sprayed my valve cover earlier in the year and renewed the copper washers on the rocker pivot bolts as I had an oil weep, and when refitting, I used a new...

  6. AT RD07 clutch mystery doing my nut!

    Africa Twin
    Firstly- an amusing photo: Despite drilling out the staked part of the clutch retaining nut, I managed to do this to a short length of 20mm round steel bar I'd welded to the dead front sprocket, and braced against the frame. A breaker bar with a short length of scaffold added was sufficient, I...

    Pillion foot peg rubbers on my Dommie are perishing and falling apart, currently held on with cable ties. Despite the fact I NEVER take a pillion, this has been bugging me so I bought new ones from David Silver. Does anyone have experience/ top tips for replacing those? It looks like it...
  9. Siezed Shock Link

    Africa Twin
    Mine is siezed good and proper, at the end that bolts to the frame. It is going to need attacking with extreme prejudice, but before I get the really big hammer out, I need to know if the bolt that attaches the link to the frame is held in place just by the nut on the bolt, or alternatively it...
  10. This may have some bearing to your bike.

    Transalp
    Hi there, anyone out there rebuilt the rear swing arm bearings and the pivot bearings on their Transalp. I've got a 1999 version and it's just failed the MOT on the pivot bearings. I thought I might as well change all the bearings at the back and give it some paint. Any one know of a company...

  13. "Clonking" sound from front sprocket / swingarm pivot

    Transalp
    Hi, My XR600V has started to make a "clonking" sound from somewhere around the front sprocket / swing arm pivot. It comes irregularly but I think I only hear it upon acceleration from low speed (low gears), never when the bike is standing still idling so I am quite sure it is related to the...

    Mechanical Advice
    I'm in the process of replacing the bearings in my @'s rear suspension linkage. The pivot points contain needle-type roller bearings which must be pressed or pulled into their seats, i.e. not tapped-in with a drift which could damage their narrow edges. Has anyone made up a bearing puller using...
