    Africa Twin
    My CRF1000L is now out of warranty so kicking dealer servicing into touch :p Having just clocked 16000 miles a valve check was due (££££££££).

  7. Another dead RD07...

    Africa Twin
    OK, so I got home the other day, put bike away as normal, no problems, but next day...nothing. No lights, nada, dead. Getting in there with my multimeter, I diagnosed a knackered ignition barrel, swapped it for a new one from David Silver and the bike started first time, roared into life. Great...

    The ‘93 600 TA I just bought has had a bit of a meltdown in the relay/regulator area, but been repaired and has run okay for quite a while. Apparently. When I bought it I pulled the panels, tank and seat off just to have a general inspection. I pulled a few wires out, checked connections and...

    Dominator / FMX
    Really hoping one of you knowledgeable folk on here can help as I'm having issues with the bike popping on tickover (tickover problems seem common for the nx650 by the looks of things). Sometimes the revs will hang high after small throttle input and other times the revs will drop and die but on...
