    I suddenly realised I have been riding my recon RD04 for 12,000 miles. Effectively that is 12,000 miles from new (even though the engine had done 65,000 before the recon). I have changed the oil and oil filter three times in that 12,000 miles but done nothing else - just abused it. I'm going...

    Anyone else have surging / misfiring issues with a cabr model xl1000v ? The bike surges and almost feels like misring around the 3000 rpm area. I have fitted new plugs , air filter and fuel pump and also balanced the carbs but the problem persists. Is this a mixture problem ? As it seems like a...

    Morning, I was taking my bike for a service yesterday, as a relatively new owner I was taking it in to get the fluids done, spark plugs etc along with new sprockets and a chain. On the way down the road I came off a RTB and gave her a twist of the wrist, it started chugging and choking at...

    Been struggling with this one. Bike was running great then thought I'd try a tank of the super unleaded. Within a very short time, she began too misfire. I'm still confused as to why, 'coincidence' perhaps but anyway, she's still misbehaving after several weeks of normal unleaded, two new sets...

    Hi all, I've just bought some NGK Iridium plugs for my service in a couple of days. They seem to be what most folk on here seem to like. I presume the spark gap is set as it should be or has anyone found the perfect gap to set them to prior to fitting? cheers Andy

    Heya! Been out the whole weekend with mates on dirtroads. Bunch a fun but when I was 2 minutes away from home (prais the lord) one of my cylinders gave out.. Started running on one.. So I got it back home and thought I would deal with it in the morning. But when I got up the damn thing runs...

    Got the service kit this morning so set about the bike ready to get it done. Took the right fairing off only to find this.... Carp.....now need to buy a new set as the other side is very badly rusted and barley makes a connection. Then noticed the rubbers mounts for the fairings are all kaput...

    Hi guys, quick question (again). Can I lean out my RD07A front cylinder somehow (moving needle depth, air screws...)? The spark plugs are pitch black and she hammers along at 120km/h. It sounds impressive pulling strongly through the gears but i'm sure it's not the best. Any info is really...

    First I want to say that the bike runs really well, no oil or coolant leak or any mix between them and no white or blue smoke. Oil looked fine when I bought the bike and I've changed oil & filter twice within 5000km since then :thumbup: First time because I wasn't sure about the history and the...

    Recently replaced youngest sons squashed TDM900 with a 650 Deauville, which is minus it's tool kit. The general stuff - spanners, screwdrivers etc, can and have been cobbled together into an ad-hoc tool kit, but the all important Honda spark plug spanner is most defo required - only managed to...
