    The last 3 holidays I’ve been on I wished I could have had my trusty nx650 with me as there is no restrictions to riding off road. I’m currently in Sal, Cape Verde and hired a quad bike and had loads of fun but it’s not the same as Pepe. I wish the UK was so accessible to use on a motorcycle, we...

    My RD08 carb inlet rubber arrived today from Germany , it was only £20 but it was a 34bhp restricted one. A couple of hours with a rasp , file and fine sand paper and a lot of black dust it looks like I got a few more bhp out of the thing. All i need now are the jets and needle for my...

    Hi, Just got myself a RD04 which is restricted by the inlet rubbers. Is there an easy and hard way of replacing them ? Cheers Bob.

    I assume these are restricted for learners. Can they be given a bit more oomph easily?

    After trying to walk in London in the rain yesterday I propose a new legislative programme: Nobody be allowed an umbrella without first taking a theory and practical test. All newly qualified umbrella users to have the size of their umbrella restricted for the first two years. Anyone accused...

    Apart from the colour scheme its actually a very tidy bike, yet to be restricted but I have managed to try it out before it gets strangled and it does go well ;):D
  8. Mechanical Advice
    Can anyone help. This came with the XR in a box of bits but unlike the standard xr inlet manifold which is wide open it has a letterboxed restricted opening leading me to believe it's it's for restricting the power. Thing is the 400 is already low enough power to comply with the new rider regs...
  9. XL
    Hi there i would be interested to know or have comments on the following. The first photo is the exhaust manifold bits. Both gaskets are broken in two and there is a wire spring coil that was also removed. Question, the only time i have seen this type of swarth was in a restricted 125, when...

    I know for example that E is for England etc some are a bit more difficult to fathom out Also noticed that some in the fiche lists have the country code ie E for germany followed by /25K ...what does this mean ?

    I am searching for dommie and found good looking one from 1998, but accourding to engine number it seems that its 25kw restricted version. I have heard that some restricted versions have restricted camshafts??? If its true, i should stay away from that restricted dommie? What else is...
  15. Africa Twin
    Hi, last year I bought an AT which had previously been imported from Switzerland. I very quickly realized there was something strange when it wouldn't pull over 80mph. I heard then that Swiss bikes are all restricted - don't know if that's true of all bikes, but on removal of the carbs...
