  3. A Yank builds a chain oiler

    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...

    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?

  16. Anyone know about indicator relays

    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...
