  2. BMW
    Got into Airheads a few years ago when I picked up my first one an R100 GS PD, since then I've been lucky enough to find a few of the things including 2 R80 g/s pd's and an R80 GS Basic, change in circumstances has made me decide that the stable has to be reduced so I took the Basic and the...
  3. Varadero
    I usually start my bike running (on sidestand) and then let it warm up while I'm donning togs. This morning as I went to get on I noticed a wet patch on the gravel under the bike (Vara 1000 carb), and upon closer inspection found that there was an obvious dripping from one of the breather pipes...
  4. XR
    Just been rebuilding the electrics on a ex army XR250RV 1997/8 model , every thing had been hacked out of it. Started with the brake lights and side lights, refitted the indicators, wired back in a flasher units and now everything works apart from when the indicators are on the brake light...

    Hi i am still having problems with my Africa Twin not firing on the rear cylinder i have changed the rear coil for an after market on and thought i had sorted the problem as she started straight up when back together.My bike ran for about 10mins on tickover and thinking that the problem was...
  6. Dominator / FMX
    Hi Ref 1999. NX650. 34000 miles. Bodger would be mechanic. I while ago I had a problem with the carb draining via the overflow, fixed it with a new rubber tipped float valve (£20.20 from Honda), whilst doing this I removed lots of crud (tank was rusting) and a screw in needle that stupidly I...
  7. Triumph
    Ok, I've done 7k miles with my XC now and as all who know me can vouch I'm pretty damned hard on the bike so may incur uncommon faults! The fault I'm highlighting here is a problem with the gear indicator/neutral light. At 1500 miles mine had an issue with the gear indicator which ended with...
  8. Africa Twin
    my rd04 gives me some headakes! i have storaged her for 6 months and now she will not go over 140kmh and she feels like a scooter, no kick and just a fraction of the power she had i have done some maintanance work on her that consits in : -changing the chain and sprockets (44 teeth to the rear)...
  9. Africa Twin
    Well, I have stripped off the fairing, lights, fairing stay and fitted the 17" front wheel, cut down and refitted the front muguard but .... There is alot of loom simply "at" the front of the bike. Has anybody tried to pull the loom back "into" the frame area and hide it in there with the tails...
  10. Everything Orange - KTM
    Got a 400 2002 plate KTM400 to go to Spain with in October. Left it in Somerset when I finished work there just after the Spainish trip and finally brought it home at the end of November in the back of a Mondeo. So it was partly stripped to get it in car. I deceide to fully strip it and get the...
  11. For Sale / Wanted
    Have refitted the top box for the commute and therefore my Touratech Luggage Rack Extension aluminium plate is for sale. Really handy when you want to tie a bigger bag down on the back of the bike, I used it regularly when riding down to Spain with my 80L North Face bag behind me. Looks good...
  12. Africa Twin
    Finally got around to trying to free the centre stand off. I reckon the bolt had never been regerased since it came from mr honda and as a result the centre stand spring would not .. erm ... spring! After a week of WD40 every night I set to it. Tried the rubber mallet, no joy. Tried the medium...

  14. Varadero
    I had the clutch cable snap a week or 2 ago and ordered a pattern cable from wemoto. Although the website said it was instock it didn't arrive for a week. I called them and they said they had had to order it in :( So I called my local bike dealer and asked him to order another in the hope that...
  15. Suzuki
    Hello Folks, Just refitted some indicators (not LED). The problem I'm having is that they come on, but don't flash. When you switch the indicators on you can hear a very quiet 'arcing' noise coming from relay. It stops as soon as the indicators come. I assume the indicator relay is gone...
  16. Recommended Dealers/Service Providers/Campsites
    Lloyds are the main (only) Honda dealers in Carlisle, situated on Kingstown Industrial Estate just a stones throw from Junction 44 of the M6. They have proved themselves to be top blokes. The rear tyre on my R1100GS has been leaking air so I took the loose wheel in for them to have a look at...
  17. Africa Twin
    My speedo recently stopped working so I naturally assumed the cable had broke so ordered a new one from wemoto. Anyway, it arrived and was duly fitted. It worked for all of 7 miles, then the speedo stopped working again. I checked the cable and it wasn't broke, I then took the front wheel off...
  18. Suzuki
    Hello Folks, Just bought a dr350 set R reg. Having a problem with carburetor. If I start the bike and leave it running then every minute or so I get petrol leaking out of the overflow pipe. I have stripped the carb, given it a good clean and refitted it. This seems to have made things worse...

  20. Transalp
    I am absolutley knackered. Last night I removed the front calipers to find the alloy was crumbling away. As that job was cut short I decided to fit the rear shock I bought from SteveR. I thought this would be an hours job but took about 2 and I finished in the dark - half in the garage half...
