  1. For Sale / Wanted
    A strange request I know, but does anyone have any old front brake discs for an RD04 lying around? I’m upcycling an unserviceable front wheel into a clock for my garage and I think it’ll look better with a disc on it. Happy to pay for postage. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hello! I did a quick search in the forum but didn't find anything similar to my issue. My 2nd gear rattles quite a lot when I open the throttle throughout all the rev range. The rattle occurs only in 2nd gear and only during aceleration. I'm sure it comes from the gearbox and it's not something...

    Hi Team, Just thought I'd ask on here before I put a good hole in £300... does anyone have an oversize tank for an '02 XR400 floating about? Was after the IMS 4.0 gallon one in Natural colour, but would also be happy with a Clarke or Acerbis. Done a lot of looking around, and 98% of them are...

    I’m a Newbie from Düsseldorf, Germany and own my XL600R PD03 now since 36y’s. By this way I like to expand my range to British XL600R riders. Here is a 1st impression of my old bucket: . http://www.honda-xl.nl/forum/download/file.php?id=11542

    Bit of a strange ask but here goes. Anyone any ideas on how to clean off oil (might be ACF50) that I spilt on the standard seat? Got a couple of marks. Tried hot soapy water. Also some bike cleaner but the stains are still there on the rough bit of the saddle. Did not want to be too aggressive...
  6. XL Technical Specs
    Having trouble with a weak spark on my Honda XL250R. We think the source coil is at fault but on test it gives 76 Ohms resistance. The correct resistance is unclear as the manual we have says reading should be in the range 200 to 500 Ohms. However later it says that for post 1981 the reading the...

  12. Clothing
    Just wondering whether anyone can suggest any motorcycle clothing shops in the north Wales / north west region that stock a good range of leather trousers? (Or a shop near Leicester as I'm over that way on a course next week.)I'm in need of a pair but can't find any that fit correctly in my...

    Hi all. Stripped and cleaned my carb and thought I’d check the jet sizes etc. On the slow jet was the number 55. Which I understand is quite large! However I cannot find any size on the main jet only the letters CBT ???? Is that just a model fitment number or do these letters correlate to a...

    Hi, mt AT (Catweasel's) has barkbusters and they limit the steering. They hit the fairing before end of the normal range of movement and I think they are why my steering lock won't engage. Any tips before I start grinding bits away? Cheers, Stewart.

    My RD07A have started to behave strange when it is cold. It starts with full choke but dies after a while. I can start it again but slowly dies. If I add throttle it dies at once. When the engine gets warm there is no problem only when cold. It can take 15 min struggling wit hstart gas and...

    Hi all, I want to do a compression test but can’t find the right PSI number for my bike. I have a Haynes Manual and that shows the numbers for the XRV750 and transalp but not the xrv650, I also have a manual for the xrv650 but it says 28 PSI and that’s not right. Can anybody tell me the...

    Hello Mates, I got an issue on my Africa... It is a kind of strange starting issue: When I turn the key, I got lightes on an everything looks like working perfectly (lights, turn, etc..) Then I switch the start killer "on" and push the button to start. Nothing happens: no noise, no moves...

    Just bought a 2006 FMX 650. Found this strange custom header in a box of spares that came with the bike. Anyone have any idea if they would fit or the performance etc. Also got a spare 650 engine and a Keihin 42mm flatslide carb ;-) The engine and carb will be sold later just want opinions if...
  20. Mechanical Advice
    Strange one, when cruising home 30mph ish the bike seems to pulse like the throttle drops and then returns... I have a suspicion of the clutch plates/friction plates but wanted a second opinion Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
