  1. XR400 Conks out

    Hi guys, a quick one. I've been trying to resolve my XRs fueling problem for a while now. It's main issue is that it conks out. If I rev it and let the throttle snap back, it tends to simply die. Whereas if I gently roll off, it stays running. I'm running #168 main and #62 pilot jets, clip...

  10. Torquing bolts

    Put the brake calipers on yesterday after mounting wheel and managed to snap 2 bolts. Im known as a right heavy handed biff but I was using a torque wrench set at 30NM. Do they get weak over years? Or was it because they had copper slip on that they just kept tightening ?? Luckily I managed to...
  11. Cold snap pictures

    Just in case someone thought I was exagerating when saying it is cold out on the motorcycle... The water freezing in the pipes expanded into these perculiar icicles. gideonbot's Album: "Bike-cicles"
  12. Indicators "slow" when it is really cold.

    Africa Twin
    My indicators during the cold snap at the start of this week were a bit "slow" for the first ten minutes or so. It would not go all all, then a bit, then not at all, then working fine. Erratic behaviour! Does this point to something else? It only happens when it is really very cold.
  13. XRV650 RD03 Luggage Rack Problem!!!

    Africa Twin
    Hi Everyone, i was trying to remove my luggage rack on my bike yesterday but i managed to snap 3 out of 4 studs that hold it in place. Does anyone know a way to repair these? It looks like they are moulded as part of the rack. If not does anyone have a spare one kicking around?

  15. Why do Drive chains snap???

    Africa Twin
    Decided to pop out for a short bimble seeing as the frost has lifted and its over 10 degrees C - spotted a track running up into a forest - thought to myself "need to check that the newly fitted top box mounting plate is secure enough to take some light off roading", so off I ride. About 1 mile...
