my 600 TA will roll forwards and allow the sidestand to fold up on the slightest of downhill slopes,
should the stand lock in place somehow?
or do I just have to remember to park her in gear?
Hiya, i'm having a problem with the fuel tank creating a vacume and compressing the tank, ive checked the breather hole and pipe and all seems clear but when i undo the petrol cap i can see the sides of the tank popping out. Any ideas whats going on?
Hello! I have raised the TA 650 and need the side stand extended, I can't find the post again by whealiebin. But does anyone know a welder near Kingston Upon Thames? Or anyone I can post it to that can help me out??

I have been wanting a trailer to transport some bikes to events, prices are crazy for what they are. Went to local steel merchants and got quoted for 2" x 2" & 4" x 2" box sections it was going to cost £200 for steel alone not including suspension unit and tow hitches light etc. But would still...

1. attach the spring to a trolley-jack securely by...
There seems to be a bit of a consensus that ABS is a "bad thing" when riding off-road but I have to admit can't really understand why. Now I know there may be times when you may wish to lock up the back wheel if going down hill covered in loose stuff and build up a wedge of muck in-front of it...
As a regular lurker and a very very occasional contributor i am leaving the fold, the ALP as gone!

i need to get the barrel off - which means loosening the four 9mm bolts and a few smaller ones on the sides. as i had a bit of bad luck with the bolts on the head and cover (3 of them sheared off) i am a little worried about taking them out especially since it broke the 3/4 to 1/4...
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...
