    Hi, I have recently bought a Transalp XL600V -87. When releasing the throttle for shifting gears, the bike continues to rev for one or two seconds at around 3-4000 rpm. I have tested to spray start gas on the inlet/carb to see if there is any leak, but I don't notice any rev change when doing...

    Merry Christmas to Everyone With Christmas Day knocking on our doors (or chimney's) and the New Year not so far away, I thought I'd start a thread about the year we're just about to leave behind. 2014 has perhaps been a good year for some, and a bad or sad years for others unfortunately. So...

    On my new 1985 VT500 I have gear selection problems, as the gear selection is similar on Africa Twins and Transalps I am asking the question here. When the engine is fully hot, after about 20 miles/ 40 mins driving I have difficulty in getting 3rd to engage from 2nd, pedal moves full distance...

    Hello all, If you like what we're doing please let us know and rate the thread at the top. It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything mainly because I’ve been so busy I’ve not had time to go anywhere. But that’s all about to change. In the past I’ve made a couple of motorcycle...

    Hi All, Been mainly perving on the site, but now need some advice on my 04's clutch. Just to introduce myself, I live and work in Tanzania, and have been here for more than ten years. There are quite a few AT's in town, very popular amongst the local Indo/Asians, and some very nice models too...

    Okay; a well trodden path by many of you so I'm hoping you'll be able to improve my technique or tell me I'm missing something that will make my life much easier - and bring fewer frowns and sighs from my lovely partner, who isn't patient with me doing jobs that go awry/... I did a standard...

    Anybody used these lines before ? I fitted one to the front of my EC today and what a bitch it was to bleed took ages pumping the lever and releasing the nipple to no joy. So then I came in and had dinner left it with the lever held for an hour or so but that didn't make any difference so then i...

    Is there any way to change the front valvecover gasket without releasing the engine from the frame? I recently adjusted the valves, and saw it's buggered ... Previous owner fixed it with some liquid gasket, which looks like a mess now that I've opened it up. Thanks, lads! /Thomas

    I thought I was finished and only had to tighten the nuts before the first ride. 1). Ran the bike outside the garage on idle last week, front sprocket in place, no sprocket cover, no chain. It ran good and sounded ok, but the front sprocket were spinning like crazy in neutral. But shouldn't...

    hi all, this morning the bike was too heavy when I tried to push it. Dipping the front calipers will make things easier, but pressing the front brake again will make the bike too heavy to push. I have not used the bike for 2 months, and we had a lot of snow and cold weather. So , i...

    On the way home from work tonight my clutch started slipping, next time i changed gear the slipping stopped, i worked out that it wasn't releasing properly, its not the cable as thats new and operating freely. When i got home i played about with it a bit, repeatedly pulling the leaver in and...

    Hi all! I need help, i think! My RD04 is making some clutch noise, and when i pull the lever i can feel some kind of "noise" in the clutch operation too, the lever feels like as it has "steps" on pulling and releasing operation. The cable is NEW from Honda and the lever pivot is lubricated...

    Right... now that I have your attention:D:D, I have a little problem... with my rear brake, in that no matter what I do to try to bleed the system I can't get any pressure on the pedal....:confused: I've tried the conventional method of attaching a clear tube to the nipple, and putting the...

    Over the past few months I have noticed an increasing problem. Sometimes the bike starts fine. Sometimes just a click. When there is just a click, I put it in gear, pull in the clutch, push the bike, let out the clutch while it is moving. This seems to loosen something as when I press the...

    Here is an article I wrote for an Aussie trail riding site Welcome to Old Bull Trailriders, it may come of some use to someone here one day. As most of you would know, if you work on motorcycles enough, motorcycle companies in their eternal wisdom, often require you to purchase a special tool...

    Have had seizure problems with one of the pistons on the right side from last winter As a result of pads being worn down too quickly due to pads not releasing and rubbing against disc, I've taken both of the right side pair of pistons out (worked the worst) cleaned them up and put new rubber...

    Hello XR fans. I have just bought a XR400 and been going through some maintenance stuff. Nearly finished the project, when is was pointed out to that the headstock bearings may need replacing. Have purchased these and was in the process of removing the front wheel when I came across a problem...
