    Hi all, New to the forum so go easy on me... Just after some advice. I'm attempting to put some oil on my throttle cables but the cables are super tight and I'm struggling to release them. What am i missing? I have a 700. Cheers

    I find myself in need of some help with the electrics on my "current" bike rebuild, if you will pardon the pun...:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes: I have reached the stage on my Triumph TR6 build where I will be ready to wire up the electrics in the not too distant future... My "current" wiring...

    I wanted to get rid of the sticky spray lube for the chain and intended to build my own chain oiler.<br> My main objectives were: low tech, independent from motor vacuum or electricity/electronics. full manual control of the amount of oil being applied, depending on road or weather conditions...
  6. Dominator / FMX
    Wondering just how well the Dominator handles offroad? And if anyone uses one as a greenlaning bike? Picked up a old beaten up bike that I am in the slow process of converting into a scrambler, but one that will actually cope with a bit of mud and green lanes. So just wondering how well they...

    Hi Guys, My name is Nick, 25 year old Dutchie. I'm new to the Forum and just bought a nice RD03 classic with only 38.000 km on it (not 138.000). Standed still for many years so giving it some TLC. Regular stuff like sticky chokes, maintenance and synchronizing/cleaning the carbs is all done and...

    I have searched high and low for "correct" stickers. I checked about half a dozen of suppliers, and found that accuracy range to "acceptable" to outright "horrible". I even mentioned last week to a Greek supplier that I would order his set if he modified the upper hole for the side fairing...
  9. Africa Twin Technical Specs
    Hello, just got to stripping the forks on my new-to-me 2000 Africa Twin. when taking the springs out, I notice they are progressive wound, Is this standard fit for year/model? Just so I can work out a baseline for oil height before I ride (didnt measure the existing height, but I believe with...

    Why do tank bags have poxy, small map pockets or more infuriatingly a decent size pocket that has a small opening....? Anyway, my new to me Givi tanklock bag is the latter, I'm just able to get a small tuff map in there (can you still get them?) Talk about wood for the trees. A walkers map...
  11. Africa Twin
    It's the pattern "Slinky Glide" one, and it seems to be a spot-on cable with smooth action and slide. It's replacing a Honda OEM one, which looks pretty much identical but was getting a bit "sticky", so I'm questioning OEM Honda here as much as pattern cables. There isn't any obvious...
  12. XR
    Hi All, I've got a 94 XR 250 that had been sitting in my parents shed for a few years. I got it home and found the carbi was full of gunk since the fuel had all evaporated and left things a bit grimy and sticky. I pulled the carb apart and soaked, cleaned and blew it all out best I could. The...
  13. Dominator / FMX
    I'm running a naked, tatty RD08 '99 Dominator and want to cover up the battery / air box. After weeks of faffing about with paper templates, corrugated cardboard, duct tape, mdf and car body filler. I've finally, almost finished making a pair of prototype side panels. The plan is to use these to...

    Hello lads. So today I found that my RD07 has a new trick up her sleeve. Cruising to a stop in first gear and then wanting to tap up into neutral is impossible. The gearlever feels well and truly welded into first gear. Cut the engine and she slides into N like butter. Am I missing something...
  15. Chatter
    It's such a shame that I might not consider a bike because of its 23 inch front tyre. Yes Bridgestone make a trail wing, but they are awful in the wet. Have I missed something? Does anyone make a sticky 23 inch!?

    My AT didn't come with the stock one, K&N's on top of the carbs, which run fine in cold weather but break the temperature needle on the red after 20 minutes idling in warm weather... Got this snorkel from EBay last week for 1 pound 40 p, with the carb rubbers in tip-top shape: Hamart sold...
  17. Dominator / FMX
    Quick question. I only ever had one throttle cable on my bike, obviously the pull one, have been told that some folks remove the "b" push cable on purpose because it can cause sticky throttle probs. anybody else run on just one or should i get another cable. Anybody have any thoughts about...

    Hi Now lets position this first - I am scared of stripping down carbs - fear of the unknown and losing bits or never getting bike running again.... I am putting an RD04 back on the road - got it started on choke but when chokes switched off or throttle blipped it cuts out. I have read in...

    As part of my rebuild I am overhauling the choke plungers, Honda now want a staggering £62 each for the kit of plungers, springs etc. I managed to get the plastic threaded parts out OK however the springs were badly corroded and one was broken and very weak. Sticky chokes are a common problem...
