  1. Slight stumble on pickup

    Dominator / FMX
    I've now had my first short ride on the SLR and enjoyed it very much. It's so much lighter, narrower and more chuckable than the Strom. However, having EFI on my last 2 bikes has spoiled me a little. The SLR has a stumble just coming off idle which is a bit annoying. It feels as though it's a...
  2. The B-17F-85-BO with serial # 42-30066 Nicknamed “Mugwump”

    Chatter
    This has nothing to do with motorcycles at all. However I hope that this "short" story will interest some of You guys. I happened to stumble upon a website dedicated to Forced Landings in Sweden during the war years. I’d just had to find if there were any within the vicinity of my home, and...

    Dominator / FMX

  5. Refresh your spark plug caps!

    Bodgers Corner

After checking the obvious, a delve a little deeper showed high resistance in 2 of the 4 plug caps, 1 had variable/inconsistent resistance & 1 was correct...... Come to think of...

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi. New to this forum but have found it very usefull. Good work people. Anyway, i've decided to resurrect the Mrs's 91 Dominator. She's owned it for what must be 18yrs. She fell off it about 10 or 12 years ago and parked it. Never rode it again. Unfortunately for the last 7 or 8 of those it's...
  9. Time to remember

    Chatter
    I like New year, but I get a little emotional at the bells, thinking of loved ones no longer with us. That's the way it is with me, an old year ends, a new begins, hoping that the people that matter most to me will be here this time next year. I know, I'm a big softie at heart really :D...
  10. Choke Plunger Plague.

    Africa Twin
    After reading a plethora of plunger plague threads - 90% say the problem was worse on the front cylinder - I pulled mine and tried to figure out what was wrong. My bike ran fine, which the exception of one stumble and a hiccup over the past month, but was struggling to get more than 39mpg. My...

    Hi Folks, Off uup North this August (God and Wife willing) but do't fancy the hours of M'way dullness. Anyone got a fast scenic route I can use, even for some decent chunks to keep me feeling alive. I would love to just 'do' the coast(from Devon), but fear it would take the whole time, and...

  17. Manx Twin to the National

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Where to start – probably with the first attempt at packing the bike at 8pm the night before catching the 7.30am ferry from the island to Liverpool. That wasn’t my best idea ever, especially as I was carrying clothes for a week with family after the weekend too! I loaded the top box with...

    Transalp
    Hi, Needing some help. My TA (XL600VX - the err, 50th anniversary model) has developed an intermitent "stumble" when ridden. It feels as though one cylinder intermitently cuts out and I suspect that it is the rear one since the rev counter doesn't falter during the "stumbles". I know some...
