    Hi folks; I have started having a problem with the ignition wire that comes in to the ignition switch solder pot. So it's the first main incomer before you flick the switch and power everything. It keeps overheating and melting out of its solder pot and cutting out the bike.. I repaired it a...

    Hi Guys, I am trying to help out a mate that has issues with his RD04. Here are the symptoms. The bike stutters when going over 5000rpm. We have checked everything. New fuel pump, air filter and plugs. Yesterday we took carbs from another RD04 to test and the problem persists, we swopped the...

    For its first 17000 miles my Tripmeter behaved impeccably, but it has now developed an intermittent fault in which the electronic signal that the Tripmeter uses keeps cutting in and out. It's a pain, obviously, because I like to use one of the trip distance readouts as my fuel gauge, and now...

    Whilst trying to fit my new MOSFET Rec/Reg in a hurry before leaving for the National I was a little (well a lot) generous with the solder. So much so that I have buggered up the three female connectors that you fit to the yellow wires. I have one spare but need another two, does anyone have any...

    My battery has let me down twice in the past few weeks so its time to change. Ive bought a new Yuasa one but have a problem with the wiring in the bike. I dropped the bashplate and noted a wire was not joined to where it should be. Theres 2 wires going into the negative side, and 1 going into...

    After looking at the wiring diag,s for the 700 TA ive sorted a way of switching the ABS for offroading, its a really easy mod and can be done by anyone WARNING THOUGH By doing this mod the speedo will not work while the ABS in turned OFF 1) From the fuse box run 2 1mm cables to where ever...

    My bikeviz bullet lights arrived and when fitting them I didn't want to take off fairing panels (again! - I'll have to stop buying stuff for the bike now). I discovered that the position light on the headlight is plugged into the loom after about 6" and thus allows you to take the whole thing...

    Hi all, as it says really, I was trying to fix/fit a car stereo at the weekend and the wire from one of the prongs (for want of a better or maybe more acurate term) came out, I stripped it a little more and shoved it back in, to make a more permanant fix could I not drop some solder on the...

    The wire to the neutral switch had come off and was dangling, so of course I think simple fix I'll just solder it back on. Well the solder didn't like to stick to the neutral pin, so after reviewing the workshop manual, which suggested that the neutral switch just "pops out" I decided to take it...

    Switch and others have been great with giving information about the trailtech. But today i actually got the kit and im facing some problems. First is where to place the magnet. The magnetbolt they send is like M10 which is way to small since honda uses like M14. So your left with either...

    Does anyone have one of these in their shed that they haven't binned yet? I'm off to Morocco in three weeks time and want to do something creative with a spare regulator I have from a GSXR1000 and I need the AT plugs to solder onto the GSXR regulator before I go. I don't want to do this on the...
