I have an RD04 from 1990 with 67000kms on the clock. The last couple of days I have started to notice a scratching sound from the engine when I pull the clutch and let I roll to a traffic light or something.
Everything sounds perfect in neutral and when driving that's why I am worried...
OK so I'm on a roll now asking questions!
Bike warms up lovely when stationary, temperature gauge showing where it should be however, as soon as I start riding gauge drops to zero.
I'm guessing that either
a/ Thermostat knackered
b/ Thermostat doesn't exist.
If either a or b I need to replace...
my 600 TA will roll forwards and allow the sidestand to fold up on the slightest of downhill slopes,
should the stand lock in place somehow?
or do I just have to remember to park her in gear?
Hi fitting new chain/ oil change etc yesterday have noticed that I have a very small ,really small weep of coolant from weep hole .It would be only a single drip gathering at the lowest part of the waterpump casing over a 24 hr period ,have placed kitchen roll below area and nothing over night...
Hi guys, a quick one. I've been trying to resolve my XRs fueling problem for a while now. It's main issue is that it conks out. If I rev it and let the throttle snap back, it tends to simply die. Whereas if I gently roll off, it stays running. I'm running #168 main and #62 pilot jets, clip...
Happy as Larry, I've just scooped another Vigor. Only 14000 miles on it and ready to roll.
You know what they say - "there's only one thing better than having two Vigors and that's having three Vigors!" :happy6:
This is probably idiotic....but the alp seems much more responsive...more agile without a topbox on the back......is this me imagining things or is there a real reason for this...I would imagine the few kg of an empty topbox should not be felt especially since I have toured with full luggage...
How do you.....
A/ Get the big Dero on to it's main stand without having a heart attack or a hernia?
Got a second hand 05 VA Dero which came complete with the Honda main stand and topbox plus panniers. I want to lubricate/ adjust the rear chain without having to roll it backwards and forwards...

AT has 32k miles on it
Noticed on my last ride (Ypres 300 miles there) and on the rides before then that when changing gear if I have been riding for a few hours or accelerating hard it won't go into the next gear, I have to roll off the throttle and try again
This isn't every gear change just...
Recently purchased a bike from these guys and I am very impressed with their services. Walked into their shop the very first time an I was welcomed with a smile, a tea and a bacon roll......! Dealing with Hadrian, Dave and the rest of the team was easy and very straight forward. In my personal...
Took the opportunity to skive off and enjoy the Spring Sun for a few hours today
Decided to have a run up to Leyburn for a spot of lunch and take in a few lanes on the way
Not long before I came across a fallen tree, luckily there was just enough room to squeeze under
Hey Again Gang,
Have always had minor challenges getting my AT started if She sits for more than a day without being started. Always turns over quite strongly but fails to ignite and using choke make no difference (not sure its actually working although once started the revs do climb if I test...
Hi, I just bought my first Dominator, 1994 in pretty good nic but has been kept outside and not run for a bit.
After charging the battery it fires up but with the clutch pulled and put in first it stalls.
Dont know if the clutch has stuck or what.
If I roll it down hill in first will it loosen...
Whilst the shock is off for a service and respringing session, I took off the linkage. The bearings seem OK but I'd like to give them a through clean. The old grease has gone a bit congealed and some roll less freely than the others. Is it possible to pop the rollers out without removing...
