    Hi All, I've tried searching but haven't managed to find a definitive answer. Is there a direct replacement carb that would fit a 1999 nx650? I was going to strip and rebuild mine as it's got the usual tickover issue but if there is a better replacement that could be used I may well just go...

    Hi, My 2001 AT has 18,000 miles on it. It runs poorly and stumbles and vibrates a lot. Over the winter I think a carb strip and rebuild is in order. Any thought as to have far should I go? Remove carb?. Strip? Fit new jets, gaskets, etc? Ultrasconic cleaning? Replace diaphragms (if fitted)...

    When putting my bike back together I found the fuel tap is leaking when in the off position, I had lost my patience in the excitement of hoping it was going to start, to open up the tap and see what was wrong. So anyway the bike fired up as normal :p but it looks like I have a sticking float...

    Hi I started the long awaited complete strip down of my 87 TA the other day and noticed a switch mounted under the rear mudguard. It is attached to an orange relay(?) with 6 connectors (only 2 of which are used). Any idea what it is? Cheers David

    Can anyone tell me how to remove the bushes either side of the swing arm? I want to strip everything out before paint and I want to renew the bearings anyway. There was a little bit of play I could feel. Here is a pic: Thanks, Adam.

    I noticed after a very long ride on a muddy/dirt road that my rear shock was getting plastered with mud. Quick and easy fix was to install a small strip of rubber, using a single zip tie. Works well, cheap, and only minutes to install. BEFORE AFTER

    The previous owner of my RD04 had fitted a new exhaust, shiny shiny etc. but the side panel was resting on the exhaust mount, and has developed a split. If you close it it is almost invisible. I have played with panels years back with various glues and not had much joy. I am thinking of trying...

    Hey all I'm stripping down my engine as the big ends are knocking. Having taken the heads and cylinders off I have noticed so much of it is rusty. Even the crank and cams...... Looks like it was recently honed as well as I can still see the marks. Guess it was sitting in pieces for a while...
