  1. Name that noise?

    Dominator / FMX
    Apologies for yet another possible carb issue / tickover problem post but before I go and take the bike for some dyno time and tweaking I've been trying to make sure everything else is ok. Work so far including recent work by the previous owner - new CDI carb clean and rejet to 60 pilot...

    Dominator / FMX
    Really hoping one of you knowledgeable folk on here can help as I'm having issues with the bike popping on tickover (tickover problems seem common for the nx650 by the looks of things). Sometimes the revs will hang high after small throttle input and other times the revs will drop and die but on...

  4. Rd07 fuel issues

    Africa Twin
    I bought and rode home 130 miles this xrv750 it ran great, if anything it's a little over fuelling as it's popping when you ease off the throttle, when I picked up it had very little fuel in as I just manage to get to the garage as I had to switch over to the reserve, When I got home...

    Transalp
    I've got a non standard stubby thing of an exhaust on my 600, after taking the heat wrap off I've realised the cause for popping.
