  5. CRF1000L - Quick release pillion seat

    Africa Twin
    There’s a small amount of storage space under the pillion seat but access requires a spanner to remove two 10 mm screws. This spanner is in the toolbox by the battery which in turn needs the Allen key under the rider seat. To make the pillion seat quicker to remove there are two easy...

    Had to retire, for now, the 600. Got myself a very nice condition 650. Couple of issues i've seen so far : The facia on the clocks is very difficult to take off, I need to change the indicator relay for LED one, not easy to get it off. I've taken all the screws that I can see out, have even...

  10. RD07A fuel leak and fix

    Africa Twin
    Hi everyone, I noticed my Africa Twin has been smelling of petrol somewhat lately but I just ignored it as I had no time to look but I was forced to when I had to fill the tank 30 miles earlier than I expected. The leaks had become serious and there were petrol stains on the engine. Fuel was...

    Hey NX650 from 1988. Have a jet kit in the mail and planning on doing Dave's mod. I wanted to take the carburetor apart and clean it up before hand, but having trouble getting two of the screws in the float chamber out - seem very soft and I don't want to ruin them. I have PH and PZ...
  12. Black smoke from a 98 Dominator :/

    Dominator / FMX
    Good friends, I have a problem with my 98 dominator. I have tried my best to solve it myself but my mechanic skills are fare from good. When I bought the bike it started pretty well but it looked that the carburetor was clogged with something. In low revs it makes some black smoke and stalls...
  13. Tansalp XL600VV forks

    I have damaged the left hand fork slider (bottom at the thread where the spindle screws in). I can get second hand ones from ebay but they are from the single disk model. Now, the single disk model has the disk on the l/h/s, good, I obviously need the mounts for the calliper, but are they the...
  14. Brass nuts

    Dominator / FMX
    Nothing to do with cold weather! On the back of the headlight surround on the Dommie there are four nuts set into the plastic, into which the instrument / surround screws go. They're like short brass barrels with a threaded hole, and they're machined / knurled on the outside to help them grip...

  17. Carb heater on SLR650?

    Dominator / FMX
    My recently acquired SLR has the carb heater which makes getting to the idle screw even harder than it would otherwise be. As I will not be riding the bike in the winter is there any reason not to remove it and its associated wiring? I assume it screws into a blind hole but if not could replace...
  18. leaning front cylinder

    Africa Twin
    Hi guys, quick question (again). Can I lean out my RD07A front cylinder somehow (moving needle depth, air screws...)? The spark plugs are pitch black and she hammers along at 120km/h. It sounds impressive pulling strongly through the gears but i'm sure it's not the best. Any info is really...

    Hi folks, I've just replaced carb float chamber gaskets and diaphragms on my 1989 TA. Bike now runs great. However just as I was about to fit the fairings back on I noticed fuel dripping from the fuel tap. I checked all screws etc and all were fine. I refitted the 2 hoses from the tap that I...
