  1. Transalp
    This applies to a 2011 model XL 700V. It has gone 53000 km. The problem started at about 50000 km. Is there anyone in Norway who has had the same symptoms? Or is it a Reodor Felgen out there who has some smart input? I posted this last year and got some tips, but without result. Have gone in and...
  2. Transalp
    So my 650 TA v4 has developed a lumpy 'pulsing' tickover and has started to backfire on startup a bit. It doesn't stall and runs fine when going though- still pulls well and mpg does not seem to have been effected.I thought I might be unbalanced cabs but I have checked them with a set of gauges...
  3. Dominator / FMX
    hello well, my dominator started knocking when it heats up. some 2min. after startup. i think that the needle bearing between the crank and conrod is f**ked is it possible to replace only the needle bearing and if so what is the part number? thanx
  4. Transalp
    OK, so this wasn't really a decision I made to fit these, but I have... The garage (don't ask), who caused me more work than they fixed, put in two of these (yes, 2) telling me they made a difference when they'd used them in other bikes. One of the many issues I found in checking their...
  5. Africa Twin
    Hello guys, I've recentely got myself a 1997 Africa Twin, which had been standing still for about 3 years but would start fine. I brough it over to the garage to have it checked and 'refreshed' - but now everytime I start the bike up with the choke fully engaged it revs to about 4000 rpm. It...

  7. XR
    Hi there, Yesterday I received my new bike - 1998 Honda XR400r and it looks awesome, the only problem is I cant seem to kick start it. I've looked at videos online and spoken to people in the know and they say there is a 'knack' to starting these bikes however I cant seem to get it after many...
  8. Africa Twin
    Hey Gang, Been having a weird series of issues with my AT over the past couple mths that have me a little puzzled. Spent the day re-charging her brand new battery yesterday after it went flat on me and after the shop mechanic tested the various wires it seems the regulator that we just...
  9. Bikes For Sale / Wanted
    Ok folks, a tentative toe in the water....... The one on the right! A very nice unabused, unbutchered 600 Transalp in black, '98 on an R reg - one of the later twin front disc models, possibly one of the best Transalps made, certainly the best of the 600's. Previously owned by dod then...
  10. Africa Twin
    Hi all. I'm looking at buying a friends AT which has not run in about 4 years. The last time it was ridden was to park it in the garage where it's been ever since. Any suggestions as to what steps I should take when starting it up for the first time. I'm thinking the following: New battery New...
  11. Transalp
    Hi All, I have a 2003 650. When starting it up in the mornings (with choke) I sometimes get a backfire. Is this normal? Does the 650 exhoust have a tendency to "cake up"? Thanks,
  12. BMW
    I thought I'd mention this as it's been bugging me. 2003 BMW R1150GS Occasionally when I start the GS up in the morning I get a puff of blue smoke out of the exhaust. It's intermittent and only happens when the bike has been on the side stand. The bike isn't using any more oil than normal so...
