We're going from Dover to Windsor tomorrow afternoon and then from Windsor to Lancaster on the 15th. On the 16th we'll be bumping around...

    Bike wont start! Exhasut makes loud bang after piston change and setting cam timing. I got a stomp juicebox 3 110cc off my friend. He told me he was riding it and the bike slowed down and when he turned it off it wouldn't turn back on. I knew a bit about bikes and after searching forums and...

    I was reading a ridiculously long thread on a Harley forum all about front suspension (as one does) and much was said about setting sag, after installing bespoke springs...as far as I'm aware, my 94/5' 600 has the long fork springs installed, ie there are no spacers between the spring tops and...

    I'm about to tighten the nuts holding the exhaust down pipe to the cylinder head on my 2002 RD07A. My Haynes manual tells me that the torque setting should be 27nm (or 20 lbft), which strikes me as a bit high considering that I've just done the same job on my CB1300 and the torque setting there...

    Hi before holiday in Italy I play with air/fuel screw as I thought it's running to lean and overheat to much. Unscrew half turn more. During ride when trying to drive more then 65 miles engine start losing power (the jumping feelin, like no petrol)) I changed setting back what had before (more...

    I've recently fitted a heated seat pad that santa dropped off for Xmas. I must say, I'm impressed, it was a touch under £40 delivered from the 'bay, so about the same price as mid range heated grips. It comes with the self adhesive heated pad, a load of wiring (most of which was chopped out &...

    Hi all, If the answer is yes can you please have a look at your service manual (the one which honda supplied ) and let me know the initial setting and final setting of the mixture /pilot screw. I think it's on page 5-18. Thanks.

    I bought this carb from a Yamaha 450 about a year ago to put on my Dommie. Its jetted up for the Dommie and has the correctnew needle fitted too which I bought from the states along with the velocity stack.(Bellmouth). Nick in Brum cleaned it and set it up for me but due to ill health ,I dont...
  13. Dominator / FMX
    Quick question. Has anyone ever re-jetted their bike while the carb is still on the bike? I've got a adjustable Super trap exhaust on my Dommie and I know I can tune to match the carb with that, but I've found a setting that I love the sound of. Not too loud but enough of barrrrrp. So I...

    Jesus wept, talk about not seeing the wood for the trees..... I've been looking for a heated jacket type of thing & figured there must be a cheaper way than the ~£150 bespoke stuff. Take one of these; A few of these; Can you see where this is going..... End up with this; It works an...
  15. Dominator / FMX
    can anyone please confirm correct procedure to check right hand exhaust valve clearance. do I check at top dead centre or slightly after due to auto decompressor. I set it at the T mark but still have a lot of noise and wonder if the auto decompressor was still lifting the valve. I have read you...

  17. XR
    I bought a used Honda XR250 Tornado last week for some trail riding etc. I am a short guy and used to the low seat height of my Kawasaki VN900 cruiser. I specifically bought the Tornado because of the 50mm lower seat adjustment capability which will help a lot when going offroad and things get...

  19. Varadero
    ok so its finally rear shock time, the varadero shock is finally going soggy, its 8yrs/50k miles and its on its last preload setting, which i dont personally think is bad for a famously "useless" item especially if any of you know how big i am! the oem showa did the job pretty well i thought...
  20. XL
    Hi All, I know this is a common issue with these bikes, I would however appreciate some thoughts on the following. Mine is a 1990 xlr fitted with the single Keihin carb. The issue is it starts fine, but if you try and rev it briskly it dies. If you slightly put the choke on, it works fine. I...
