screwed

  1. Fork Gaiters. RD07 Where can I get some.

    Africa Twin
    Mines gone a bit manky. All screwed up. Would be nice to change them.
  2. Carburetors mixture

    Africa Twin
    The mixture on the front cylinder is rich and this foul the plugs up with carbon, which means I must clean or replace them often, the other cylinders fine,I did a trip to Malawi in October last year and had to change the plugs every 2000km. Is this the jets or air/ fuel mixture screwed?
  3. Carb problem.

    Dominator / FMX
    I am still having a problem getting my carb set up right. Jnr arrived today with a couple of plugs for me and I had charged the battery up. A couple of days ago I put a thinnner washer under the carb needle and screwed the idle jet screw so its only 1.5 turns out. I took the bike for spin and...

    Africa Twin
    Looking for some advise on my engine. Jack failed while working on the restoration and back end of bike came crashing down on itself. The shock was out of the bike as well as the swing arm links, so when the jack failed there was nothing to hold the bike's end.... When I was back to work on the...

  6. Fuel Tap / fuel cock orientation - AT 1993

    Africa Twin
    My Africa Twin 1993 does not have a petrol tap / fuel cock lever. I am trying to turn out a lever that can be screwed on to the tap spline; however I have no idea at which orientation the On, OFF and RESERVE is. Can anyone help with an image of an existing fuel tap?
  7. Sticking Dipstick!

    Dominator / FMX
    I've just picked up this rusty Vigor, amongst the catalogue of woes is that the dipstick can't be unscrewed when the oil is hot. When cold it unscrews easily enough. Has anyone else had this problem? I was thinking of dressing the threads a bit to slightly reduce the O/D, but I'm puzzled as to...

    Know this has been "sort of " covered before, but does anyone know the precise distances and general spec to set up the lights on the @ ?? Been fiddling about with mine and I think I've screwed up :mad:

  12. Gay Marriage

    Chatter
    At last some talking out and talking sense for a change instead of going with it and not upsetting anyone. I've never understood how gay marriage or civil cermonies could become legal, but the ceremonies have. We have enough screwed up kids in this country as it is with out having to confuse...
  13. rear tyre puncture

    Transalp
    So, a nice screw has found its way into the fleshy part of my still very pristine rear tyre....will deal with the puncture tomorrow and get the tube replaced...would a screw neatly screwed into the tyre compromise the tyre`s performance though....the screw itself seems to be a smallish one...

    Dominator / FMX

  15. Now my calipers are screwed

    Africa Twin
    My newly aquired AT is causing me even more financial woes now... Today my new caliper seals arrived and I stripped down the calipers to fit them. At 40,000 miles its something you really have to do. Upon dissasembly my heart started to sink.. I've seen this problem quite a lot with old...
  16. Am I screwed here?

    Transalp
    I seem to have overtightened two of the screws that hold what the Honda manual calls the Upper Cover. When trying to remove them now, they just want to spin and not disengage from the rubber/brass nut behind. HELP! :banghead:
