    Hello Gents, If I wanted to use an earth fed switch (momentary push type) to kill the ignition, which wire do I need to feed the earth to? The standard Domi kill switch just cuts the power to the CDI, but I am trying to simplify the wiring and switches. Many thanks Jim

    I'm having trouble removing the inner speedo cable on my AT. It broke about 30cm from the top and I am trying to push the old one up from the hub end and it doesn't budge. I've been somewhat forceful and no go. it spins however. Also worth noting that I have spayed a bunch of WD40 in the casing...

    I have just fitted my flatside carb to my Dommie and was wondering which of the two push/pull controls is the choke? I know one of them is the choke but what is the second one for and which is which? :thumbup:

    Does anyone know if there is supposed to be a washer or spacer between to fork and the speedo drive assembly? I know there is one on the opposite side. But for some reason, when I do up the shaft on the wheel. The bolts holding the disk are rubbing on the caliper on the speedo drive side. Its...

    Hi all, Just putting the clutch basket back together, and I have 7 friction plates in total. When I put it all together and tighten down the spring plate though, the plates move about freely. I would have expected the plates to be held in place by the pressure plate, until the push rod presses...

    Quick question. I only ever had one throttle cable on my bike, obviously the pull one, have been told that some folks remove the "b" push cable on purpose because it can cause sticky throttle probs. anybody else run on just one or should i get another cable. Anybody have any thoughts about...

    Anyone got a pair of wide fit mx/enduro/trial boots they want to move on please? Size 10/44 or possibly even a well broken in, tight fit 45? Don't need to be waterproof, just GWO :-) I have not been able so far to find a pair that are comfy, as new boots push on the side of the foot too much...

    Hi Folks, I'm in the process of replacing the speedo plastic gear thingy and have hit a bit of a problem. The old isn't in too bad a condition and slides in and out of the housing no problem but the new one slides in so far (I've given it a good greasing) then feels slightly stiff. I'm...
  17. Chatter
    What were they called, and can you still get them? Years ago, when I was a lad, some of the more wealthier kids had these pipe cleaner brush kind of things wrapped around the wheel hubs on their push bikes. As they cycled along, the brush spun on the hubs keeping them and some of the spokes...

    Have been meaning to mention this for ages. As said the front brake light is staying on. There seems to be a bit of slop in the lever, push the lever forwards and the light goes off. I am guessing it is something simple, maybe the spring has got tired, anybody got any ideas. Pop the lever off...
