  2. How to.....
    heya, so my RD04 took a tumble and the screen was very badly damaged - the break stretches acriss about 75% of the screen. What are my options here? Glue it and, if so, which glue! (plastic weld is probably the correct term). Replacement? Does €75 sound about right to you?
  3. Mechanical Advice
    Hi there, I am currently building a Honda SLR scrambler/tracker (what ever is the right term for it, I'll find out once I've finished it). I need to clean the engine, because it has 18 years worth of dirt and grim on it, and looks as though some one has spray canned it silver in the last few...
  4. Varadero
    What's the fork oil volume in an xl1000 ('02 plate), and what would the standard oil weight (is that the right term) ? Carrying me round it feels a little soft, I think I'll go up an oil when I get it done.
  5. Dominator / FMX
    Hello, I'm a new member and Dominator owner on the back of seeing Backtrackers builds. It's a 1999, 20k fair example that needed some tlc. I've got a 2003 Husaberg FS650e (long term rebuild still in bits) and a 2005 ZX6R in the garage and wanted an all rounder that I could ride anywhere and...
  6. CRF - New Forum!
    I am interested in buying a crf250l for touring and wondered if anyone on the forum had done any or indeed put quite a bit of mileage on one. Also interested in how the longer term ownership costs are going ?
  7. Africa Twin
    Quick question - what size are the front and rear wheel spindles on an RD07a? It's persisting down outside so can't get the bike out to look and feel like doing some lathework tonight It's first day of half term and the kids are driving me nuts so will make a couple of bearing drifts to chill...

  10. Travel
    Checking things off my "to sort out" list for the Dambuster Run in late May one of the items I haven't got is recovery insurance/cover. I am a member of the AA but it does not include European cover. Should I see about extending my AA cover just for the 4 days I am abroad or is looking for...
  11. Transalp
    Does any one see a reason this would be an issue ? That is an rd04 CDI in a place of the twin CDIs in a 1987 transalp they seem to work just not sure if there is any long term issues
  12. Welsh Invasion
    Right guys here's the thing, for personal reasons I've had to change the dates to February 15/16/17th 2013 This may be easier because it's half term week. For the original dates I had Frad + 1 Bob the limp Lord & Lady V Chad Sharri + J Craig Mr + Mrs Austin PeterPan Barftone + car Russ +...
  13. Chatter
    I am preparing this tonight for the family as an early supper as a treat for No1 sprog who is off back to Uni, sadly not for the term, but just for the w/e. Her boyfriend (family has a catering background) was here with us a few weeks ago and had never heard of this culinary masterpiece, surely...

I have spoken to my current provider and called a few insurance companies and they are all 12 months and if cancel then have to...
  15. Africa Twin
    Hi, I made some aesthetic improvements to my bike, adding an upper fairing protection like the R1200 GS, redundant as it was, it proved to be quite useful in pressing the nose down and better tracsion on front wheel. Not to mention the hot F-4 Phatom looks (I think biking is 40% fantasy:))...

    An American biker friend of mine is coming over for my wedding (gasp, choke, cough. Still freaks me out to say that) in July. It's a long haul for him and, given the weakness of the dollar, an expensive one. Since he's come all this way, he figures he'll have a look around for a few days. He was...
  17. Africa Twin
    How long did you own it? What did you do to your bike to get it just the way you liked it? What was your main use of it? I'm considering stripping my bike down over winter and getting the frame powdercoated, get the seat repacked and twiddle (Tech. term) with the gearing.
  18. Transalp
    I fitted a pair in October 2003 after all the rave reviews I'd read on net. People spoke of very high mileage, the best grip, blah de-blah. The 90/90-S21 & 120/90-S17 (the standard fitment) seem to be very cool running which was a surpise when running the standard pressures of 29 psi. Maybe it...
