    How do I'm after some help/advice about the oil warning lights on the 700. Riding in to work today - second day back after a week or so off - and one of the red lights on the dash starts flashing. Initially it blinked a couple of times, but then came on and off under acceleration and braking...
  2. Bikes For Sale / Wanted
    Does anyone have a wiring loom from a XR650L for sale? Condition not important as it will likely be modified anyway so the cheaper the better, I'm just looking for a decent starting point.
  3. Transalp
    Hello folks, I had an intermittent fault with my 700 for months now. Sometimes it would't start and then sometimes engine would cut out when handlebars were turned to the right. Yesterday I decided to have a proper look and after looking for frayed wires or something out of ordinary I pulled on...

    2007 650 starting issue-not charging correctly Hi all, hope someone may be able to throw some light on this... I have bought a 650 TA 2007 with less than 15k in what appears very good condition. It has been parked up in the garage over winter and not used by myself until the last week or so...
  5. Transalp
    Following the theft and subsequent recovery last March of my old transalp 600 (in pieces). I'm now gearing up for a project. I have most big parts from my alp here with a frame from a bike a friend broke for spares. As this will never be/feel like the same bike it was, I'm planning a few...
  6. XR
    Hi, this is my 1st post as i'm totally new to this forum having bought a fairly 'tatty' 1996 XR250 a week ago. (my 1st dirt bike) :happy7: The bike starts quite easy, & the engine sounds really good. (my main reason for paying a good price for the bike) But I have suspicion that carb jetting...
  7. Africa Twin
    My first Post... I have just aquired an RD 03 vin # RD03 10004xx to keep my crf1000 dct company in the garage. It is 99% original but needs just a little care to make it excellent. Question.. Was this bike an early Japanese domestic build ? It does have a “speed” light and I think Japan...

    To improve starting, I'd like to take the carb back to the original (UK) settings. I have a manual showing Main Jet 142 and Slow Jet 52. However, the manual appears to be for USA models. Would UK models have been fitted with the same jets?

  10. Africa Twin
    Hi all, Greeting from the west coast of the US. I have been lucky enough to import a 1997 TA. The motor was blown and I'm starting the rebuild process. I need to press the crank shells out of the case and I was wondering what people are using or any tricks. I was planning on turning a pressing...
  11. Dominator / FMX
    hi, I've got a problem with my great condition, low milage (11,000) SLR 650 and hope that someone might be able to help. I bought it in August and everything has been working faultlessly until I went to start it last week and it sounded like the battery was going flat which was strange because...
  12. Transalp
    Hi folks, Long time no speak (this is on my part btw). Last year I ended up with an M reg Transalp 600 (I still have the RD07). It rode OK, a bit like a pig with the stock suspension etc... but nice enough :) Anyway then I was away with work etc etc life... the bike sat a while. So mid October...
  13. Africa Twin
    Hello there, Have recently bought a RD07A with some overheating issues, the problem was the radiators but i took the previlage and changed all the gaskets just to be sure. When i was waiting for the parts to arrive i did a horrible mistake. The bike had an alarm system but since i was not...
  14. XL
    Hello, I've recently acquired a 1972 Honda XL250 Motosport and am currently restoring the bike. Before breaking the bike down, I noticed when kick starting the bike that it would make a sound (something like a crude click) and almost feel like it 'gave way' or was 'stripping/slipping' (for lack...
  15. For Sale / Wanted
    Does anyone have a spare rear rim (17x2.50) that they are selling? I have stripped my wheels down ready for powder coat and found that there is an area around the tyre valve, where the outer surface is starting to de-laminate. Colour is not an issue as i'm having the Hubs and Rims powder coated

  17. Dominator / FMX
    I am looking for a set of crash bars for my 2001 FX650 Vigor. Is the frame different to a SLR frame. Does the Dominator have the same frame. There seems to a number of different model numbers starting with RD 0?. Does anyone know what the model number is for the Vigor. Just acquired the Vigor...

  19. CRF - New Forum!
    Hi guys. My friend and I recently installed new gears in my CRF 250 R 2007. All works great apart from ive now noticed my bike seems to be getting very hot very fast. Literally within 10 seconds of starting it the pipe at the front is scorching hot! I rode it briefly mainly to test the gears and...
  20. Mechanical Advice
    Bike wont start! Exhasut makes loud bang after piston change and setting cam timing. I got a stomp juicebox 3 110cc off my friend. He told me he was riding it and the bike slowed down and when he turned it off it wouldn't turn back on. I knew a bit about bikes and after searching forums and...
