Bit of a strange ask but here goes. Anyone any ideas on how to clean off oil (might be ACF50) that I spilt on the standard seat? Got a couple of marks. Tried hot soapy water. Also some bike cleaner but the stains are still there on the rough bit of the saddle. Did not want to be too aggressive...
Good day one and all.
I currently have 2 bikes one for the road and the other for trail riding, ST1100AW and a Yamaha WR250F, and am seriously thinking of getting rid and getting an RD07.
The plan is for some long distance rough trail riding over to Europe, British exit be dammed, which I...
I have a 1986 XR600 in generally good over-all condition, don't think it would need much if indeed anything for M.O.T, runs away fine a bit of smoke on start-up but probably partially down to lack of use, would appreciate if someone could give a rough indication to value as have owned...
As above, these are all I have left, sob, sob!
They are all used, the bars and stand could use a spruce up but, the box is good and comes with all the mounting kit and keys. It matches the bike and looks really smart. A rough guide price would be great as would any offers before the eBay...
I have recently come into ownership of a 1996 Africa Twin.
Last run in 2007, it has sat garaged up ever since. Complete non-runner in need of a complete overhaul, although it is complete as the day it was last ridden. 42k miles.
Just wondering on a rough idea of value in its current...
Decided to finish my project, but due to selling a few parts in the past, I'm unable to do so.
What I need for my RD03 (XRV 650)is:
- rear left fairing
- rear right fairing
- rear luggage rack + carrier
- headers + protectors
- muffler (does not have to be OEM)
I have a strange noise with my 2008 Varadero XL1000. Usually (but nothing consistent) when I come to a stop I will hear a noise just before I come to a complete stop. Sounds like maybe a loose clutch lever, or maybe a shifter lever, or maybe a relay click sound or maybe something hitting the...
Hi folks, my 1989 transalp is clunking like mad when I ride over rough surfaces or speed bumps etc. I can't see anything obvious and just wandered if anyone has had similar problems or can offer some suggestions ?
I recently bought a rd04 that has started to run really rough! It has no idle, smokes a lot. It's running way rich but I can't figure out why..
I've checked the carbs, spark, choke but i can't find anything wrong! Any tips? Sun is shining and I got no bike in working order! Hehe :)
Looking for parts 12,14,15,16,17 and18.
A quick look at the CMSNL site makes me ask the question " are there aftermarket alternatives?"
Also could do with two new CDI's as the current ones have been broken and siliconed and look pretty rough once I got all of the electrical tape off of them...
Besides the great countryside it's one of my favs from Ronnie Lane and Pete Townshend
on the album Rough Mix. That's Eric Clapton by the way on the dobro. :) RIP Ronnie Lane who passed away
So...where is this? It looks like a nice area to ride. Hopefully it has not changed much...
I am currently in Spain until April 2015 and using an XT350, it's going well but I think some of the really rough tracks are taking their toll on the old girl. So for our next sojourn in October 2015 I will be getting another bike but I am not sure which one. Any one owned both the XT600E and...
I'm currently doing the big loop around northern Vietnam, and I've been riding on super dusty roads for about 10 days now. The big girl is starting to run slightly rough, and I'm thinking the airfilter could use a cleaning. I have a Pipercross foam filter, which is easy to clean, but...
Hi Again members,
I have replaced the faulty cdi unit and all appeared good, free reving was ok, went for a ride and the old girl is breaking down under load, I replaced the plugs but still same problem, when slowly bringing the revs up out of gear it has rough spots until it gets a fist full of...
My '97 250 has started running rough and won't rev up fully.
It has had an Edelbrock carb on for the last 3 years and has ran sweetly. I race it in Hare and Hounds.
In the last race it started to run riough when hot, like it has a fuel issue. I never drain the carb, bad I know.
So I had the...
My engine sounds like a bearing is getting rough, gearbox output shaft I think. does anyone know if the injection engine fits the early carb versions? I need to swap the engine so I can take my time checking it all out and I need the bike to get to work on. Thanks.
