smoke

  1. Dominator / FMX
    Hi to all, I am currently facing an issue with my FMX. While it does not smoke not at all (at least not visibly) when it warms up (very hot) it starts to smokes (mainly from the right exhaust). This however does not happen every time that the motor warms up, so the occurrence is irregular. I...
  2. What's it worth?
    Hi All I have a 1986 XR600 in generally good over-all condition, don't think it would need much if indeed anything for M.O.T, runs away fine a bit of smoke on start-up but probably partially down to lack of use, would appreciate if someone could give a rough indication to value as have owned...

  4. XR
    Hi all, First of all, before you bite my head off, I am a total novice when it comes to engines and have only learnt a little through online research. I live in Hanoi and bought a used 2006 XR 400 (supermoto Japanese import). 10,000km on the clock. This is my first (big) bike and although there...
  5. Transalp
    Hi, I'm looking to replace the amber lens on my 1992 Transalp for clear or smoke glass. I found these but it says it fits only models up to 1990. Is there really a difference pre/post 1990? I thought they were the same until 1993.

  7. Transalp
    Hi there! My first motorbike (since my 125cc motocross) is a Transalp 600 1992 in great condition. Already love it. I kind of like how quiet it is, but if I could gain a few horsepowers, I could consider a cooler sound :) What exhausts do you recommend? Is it worth it? I hate the dull...
  8. Dominator / FMX
    Good friends, I have a problem with my 98 dominator. I have tried my best to solve it myself but my mechanic skills are fare from good. When I bought the bike it started pretty well but it looked that the carburetor was clogged with something. In low revs it makes some black smoke and stalls...

  10. Transalp
    Hi My 87 TA has developed a problem when trying to start. Basically when you press the start button, there is a 'pop' and sometimes a small puff of smoke near the starter solenoid area. This in turn seems to discharge the battery. I have replaced the solenoid but its still doing it. I have the...
  11. Africa Twin
    Hi AT friends, need some expert advise as I'm a shitty mechanic myself :) After more than 60.000 km my RD07 from 1996 has made it from Denmark to Bali on my way to Australia. It has gone a bit more than 100.000 km in total, and is not running well now. It is burning a lot of oil (need to top...
  12. Africa Twin
    Hi guys , so this has been going on for a while now and has not fixed its self yet ;) from the small whole for condensation in the bottom of the exhaust there is black 'stuff' that blows out. Before I did a major service to the bike this didn't happen, I think it started happening after I...
  13. Transalp
    hi everyone i'm new to the forum! I have recently got hold of a transalp 650. Stupidly I dropped it on its right hand side while taking it off its centrestand. iT WAS a controlled drop not a sudden one. it lay there for about 1 hr before I could get help to lift it off again. When I restarted it...

    Never thought I'd do this but I'm getting round to the idea that I really should sell the trusty Alp, so a tentative toe in the water.... It's a 2002 reg 'V1' that I purchased 3 years old with 6800 miles, only 1 previous owner. I've owned it for around 11 years and put around 70k on it, in...
  17. Dominator / FMX
    Called into Viamoto today (in Sheffied) to look at a Pegaso 650 they have for sale, it was a dog. But then I spotted a very clean NX650 across the other side. Ooh thinks I - they want £1295 and it's only got 18K on the clocks. It was all going very well until I started it up. Lots of smoke and a...
  18. Transalp
    So there's a rattly noise. It sounded like there was something in the exhaust expansion chamber - like a catylytic converter or something - the rattle had always been there but off and on and no real pattern to it Maybe it's the cold weather but now it's there and bothering me every ride. It...

    Good day all! After getting a lot of info on this forum re the FACET fuel pump replacement, I went ahead and did this mod. Replaced the fuel pump on my RD07 with a FACET 40105 and gave the AT a service - fuel filter (not OEM), plugs, oil filter and oil. I did not do the air filter (yet) as...
  20. Dominator / FMX
    Hi Guys, 1996 NX650 Dominator with 34k miles on the clock. Apparently well looked after. Well it is now any way, mileage appears to be genuine from history and MOT’s with the bike. I have noticed on deceleration, engine braking, clutch out smoke from the exhaust. I would like to assume this...
