  1. XR
    Just bought a decent XR500r, it runs great but the throttle is very touchy or sensitive off idle. Any suggestions?
  2. Bodgers Corner
    I finished my chainoiler bodge. I put 200 miles on it today and it works surprisingly well. What it ISN'T is pretty. My bike is a 1990 Transalp with many Africa Twin bits. It's like this because the ATs were never imported to cruiser-happy America and poor sods like us have to build our own...
  3. Bodgers Corner
    Woooo, my own special corner on the site :rolleyes: Here's my 'sh*t kit', left in place for the winter, keeps salt & crap from all the inaccessible places around the engine - fine for ambient temps up to 15 to 18 deg C. Ok, here's a home made sump protector, made from stiff alloy sheet...
  4. Meet Ups / Rideouts
    We'll be there - freezin our sensitive bits off in a rusty caravan held together by spit and chewing gum :D In a spirit of selfless sarifice I'm ferrying the stuff we need on the bike while they slum in on a train. :rolleyes: Soooo .... they basically fell for my cunning plan to get the...
  5. Africa Twin
    Hi all, Is it normal (well as normal as the @ world can be) for the near side headlight to be not as bright as the right hand lamp whilst on full beam. This has been bugging me for some time now and with my extra sensitive super man like eyes is really beginning to p**s me off. Am I really...
  6. XR
    The XR has a cold spark plug for hot running. The chap I bought it from put in for my journey back home (80 miles including motorways). Is the XR that sensitive? Can I just change back to the standard one? How would it get on if I spent the whole day when it was hot green laning. Should I keep...
  7. Other Bikes
    I have just got back from my local KTM dealer where I test rode a 990 Adventure. WOW - what a bike. PLUS points - fantastic engine, pulls really hard in any gear, sounds great, even thought it a lot taller than my TA the balance is fantastic, within a couple of minutes I was quite happy to stop...
  8. Mechanical Advice
    Not a TA or AT problem but on my son's Honda city fly. One of the rear indicators is broken so we replaced both with a pair of cheap Motrax one's (£9.99). What I didn't realise was that these have small 2.3watt bulbs and flashed too fast. So, he took 'em back and replaced them with some...
  9. Varadero
    Just noticed i have had my 2000 carby varadero for 6 months now. What have i found out 1 Preload adjusted to 18 clicks, works just lovely 2 Sensitive to tyre presssures when they are flatter than reccomended even a little becuase i have not bothered to do them, bike feels shite 3 Front spark...
