The digital trip on my 2003 07A has started to play games. The Clock works ok and the speedometer is fine. The digital trips work ok upto about 35 mph, then stops recording. When the speed drops it starts working again. I have checked all the plugs and sockets and opened up the trip meter and...
I came out to find what appears to be a clear film separating from the tank with water or air trapped underneath, after a night of heavy downpour. The safety stickers appear to be on the outside which suggests that this clear coating is original. Has anyone experienced anything...

80mph indicated is in fact 70mph.
This is something I can deal with, but the odometer is also out, throwing of total mileage the bike has covered (extra...

John Haynes creator of the Haynes Manual has passed away at 80. Thankyou and your tech writers...don't think I could of split my AT cases without you.

My 2001 AT has 18,000 miles on it. It runs poorly and stumbles and vibrates a lot. Over the winter I think a carb strip and rebuild is in order.

Replace diaphragms (if fitted)...

Its think it's a electrical problem
