    I’m on changing the output shaft on my 700 XL and having started it up after the rebuild I am getting a very light noise from the clutch side, my question is there anything that is peculiar to the clutch to make it noisy.

    Africa Twin
    So I’m rebuilding a ‘89 XRV650 and I want to paint the engine. The side cases I removed and I want them to be powdercoated but I’m in doubt about the colour. Powdercoat can be done in most RAL colours. Anyone ever done this and know which colour comes closest to the original?

  8. Blown bulb

    Dominator / FMX
    My dommie’s tail light failed on the way home last night. The first clue was when a trucker flashed his lights at me after I passed him on the M25.

  14. Fixed my neutral switch....

    Transalp
    I was told it was intermittent when I bought the bike, and had been checked out and nothing seen to be wrong.

The safety stickers appear to be on the outside which suggests that this clear coating is original. Has anyone experienced anything...
