Good day gentleman, I recently became aware of a faint but distinct clicking sound coming from the top of the front cylinder at idle. Revving probably masks the sound because I cannot hear it then. Its totally random with no rhythm. Should I investigate/be worried??
So I'm standing at a pedestrian crossing in Marseille today, a bloke on a @twin pulls up to the lights, he spots me wearing my @twin t-shirt and shouts across something along the lines of "les motos par excellence!!" While pointing at my shirt, he then revs the nuts of it and shoots off with the...
Putting the engine back together, and can you believe I can't remember which cam is front and which rear. Anyone have a photo? No visible indication on the cams, just some random raised letters.:confused:
I'm relatively new to the forum, having only bought an '03 ex-police 650 'Alp a fortnight ago, although the buying decision was informed by about a week's research...mostly on this forum. Yesterday I noticed that the 'bars weren't quite straight & true (why I didn't notice in the first...
I bought a new engine for my dommie this week and found it has some strange oil pipes coming off the barrel (I assume they're oil anyway:confused:)
Its an RD02 engine just like mine, but I can't find any dommies with these pipes. Searching the internet it looks like fmx's and some xr/xl's...

Ok so i have no idea if these are interrelated, but i have a horrible feeling they probably are.
Start bike -no problem, warm her up off i go.
I have little to no power in first gear, even if i leave her to warm-up for 5mins, still no oomph. She goes like, just not great.
2nd - 5th no problem...
In Dublin today, in not the most pleasant area. Pull over the bike to ring one of my mates. Was in the process of trying to find a primary school to do some questionares. Part of my job you see!
On the phone and a red car pulls up beside me, guy in side gesturing at me. finish phone call...
Sore for a few days, a week at the outside. There are also scars so sitting on a bike and bouncing around won't be recommended. I went back to work after two days, albeit walking like John Wayne.
Main thing to remember about the BIG V is that it takes a months or so to clear the old sperm out of...
