  11. XL
    Hi all A couple of months ago I bought a 1984 XL600R which seems to have had a hard life. The idea being to strip it down, clean it up and sort it out so that I have a decent looking bike that I can enjoy getting dirty again. My latest problem has got me stumped and I'm hoping someone will be...

  16. Dominator / FMX
    any info please on "air vent tubes" coming out of a 1999 NX 650 Dominator, where do they connect to after leaving the carb . One comes from a small diagphram on the side of the carb (air cut off ? ) and another from the front of the carb toward the inlet manifold . They join in a T piece over...
  17. Africa Twin
    Hello there! I was rebuilding my carbs while looking at the Honda fiches, and saw that a gasket on my carb is positioned differently. On the fiches, the order is: 28-1-15, so the metal collar (15) sits on the carb, the gasket (1) sits on the metal collar, and the plastic plate (28) sits on the...

  19. Transalp
    can anyone recommend a decent cover for a 600 TA? I did a search on here but nothing came up. By 'decent' I mean something that stays on, packs up small and won't rip after a month...it's mainly for deterring opportunist thieves and similar vermin, rather than withstanding a hurricane. Amazon...
  20. Transalp
    Have a newly acquired 2008 700. Does anyone know the factory settings for damping and preload on a std shock? Its fine over big bumps (like speed humps) but a small, frequent sequence (like when the tarmac gets ripples in it - or rumble strips) feels like there's no suspension at all. I'm...
