    1989 TA 600, 55,000 miles. I ride in London, so it's pot hole and speed hump heavy, the bike seems to to have developed harsh front suspension, it really crashes and bangs over the bumps, almost like it's not soaking up the bumps like it used to (unless the potholes have got worse) Would...

    Just finished the bike, all painted and looking good. Went for a ride today. Stopped off for a coffee. Put my left foot down and into a pot hole, hence the bike went over and trashed the left front fairing panel:mad: So if anyone has one going for a fair price, I would be very happy man. Also...

    Hi all, An odd but important question - are the clutch and stator covers made of aluminium, pot metal or something different? Am about to start a rebuild and I would like to put an anodised plating on them, but need to know what the material is. Does anyone know for certain? Thanks, James

    I've just seen a Kawasaki W650 for sale - I rather like the look of them. I don't need another bike, but I'm rather tempted, it's a bit different, and I've not had anything like it before. Has anyone had one? Anything to watch out for? I realise they're not the fastest bike in the world, but it...

    Whilst reading the Evening Standard I came across an article about a couple who had run up a rather large bill in a restaurant and then whilst pretending to be smoking outside, had run off without paying. The bill for dinner came to £586 including service of about £70! The owner complained that...

    Hi. I've a wee problem with my XL600V. Sometimes it starts on one pot and the rev counter stops working? After a short ride, 1 or 2 miles, it runs fine and the rev counter works again. It can run for days before it happens again but only happens from cold. Any ideas. Cheers

    When I collected the bike i bought of flebay during the week it didn't fire up on 2 cylinders and seemed quite lumpy. It warmed up then picked the front cylinder up and seemed OK. I wasn't too woried about this, figured it must just be carburation or electrical. Sat down yesterday morning...
