    I just had my first go at logging in using my new smart phone and the tapatalk app, only to be confronted with at least 6 new posts that seemed to originate from me. I quickly signed out, and logged in with my tablet to get the view I'm used to, expecting to have to advise that I'd been hacked...

    Here’s one for ye, So I was cursing at 120kph and then the engine cut out, it was exactly like I hit the kill switch. The engine died instantly. I tough it was the CDI but there two of them and if you loose one you loose only one cylinder not two. Possibly both of the CDIs blew at the same...

    I need to replace the large O-ring that sits between the carb boot and the head on my RD02. Does anyone know where I can find one as most of them are in the States or cost £10-£15 to post an O-ring that costs about £5...:( If anyone has a spare they would be prepared to sell, that would be...

    Hi All, (quick question about the OEM rubber cushion) So it's time to change the front sprocket, I was using a JT sprocket for the last 15k km, it fitted well and wore well. Now finally I can fit the famous OEM Sprocket ;). 1. Why is the rubber cushion so big? It touches the chain. That...

    My new to me TA XL700 VA runs a bit hot....I read somewhere on this forum that "normal" running temperature for TA is 78C. Although it's winter at the moment my one quickly goes up to 80+ when I hit the traffic, then before I know the fan has kicked in....Coolant level seems OK, I can't see any...

    I have fitted an MRA Varioscreen to the 700 as I thought this would keep rain off my visor! Unfortunately as I rode home from Brands Hatch on the Sat of the BSB end of season and it humped down! The problem quickly became apparent that the Varioscreen actually puts the spray directly onto my...

    I'm canvassing views and experience of stainless fittings, bolts, clips etc vs plated ones. Some of the ATs bolts are completely corrosion free indicating stainless or great plating/passivating or what have you. Others haven't fared so well. Come rebuild time I want every fastener to have the...

    When I first bought my Transalp 700 about a year ago it came with the tall Honda touring screen. I quickly found out that it did not suit me. Above 60-65 I got bad buffeting around the head which made me feel quite queasy. I soon purchased an MBA Vario screen which is lower than the Honda one...

    I've posted on here many times about the transformation that can be wrought on an FX650 by removing the baffle tubes from the standard silencers and going up to a 15t front sprocket and 175 main jet. I've always eschewed intake modifications because of a long and painful history of Honda bikes...

    Hi! It seems my tacho is showing the RPM wrong. When idling at ~1000rpm, the tacho stays at 0 and just vibrates slightly. As soon as I open the throttle it moves upwards quickly, but doesn't catch up properly until around 4-5000 rpm. Any ideas what may be causing this? I think it's always been...

    I noticed on a ride out yesterday that there was a few seconds delay between flicking the indicator switch and the indicators coming on. When I had a closer look today, when u switch on the indicators you can hear a relay clicking quite quickly and then slowing down to a normal rate when the...
