  3. Starter relay problem.

    Transalp
    The ‘93 600 TA I just bought has had a bit of a meltdown in the relay/regulator area, but been repaired and has run okay for quite a while. Apparently. When I bought it I pulled the panels, tank and seat off just to have a general inspection. I pulled a few wires out, checked connections and...

    Transalp
    Hello folks I'm hoping you can help me pinpoint the cause of a peculiar looking issue with the 700. A bit of background; I've had the bike for a couple of years and recently had the engine rebuilt by a Honda dealer to repair a stripped output shaft. The splines the sprocket mounts onto had...
  5. Just when things were looking better - b*llocks

    Dominator / FMX
    So the weekend was supposed to be a wife free bike stripping and rough tickover solving couple of days with maybe a cheeky ride out or two. All started well other than an exhaust valve inspection cap trying to break while being removed but I managed to remove it with only minor damage. The...

  8. !982 XL 250 source coil

    XL Technical Specs
    Having trouble with a weak spark on my Honda XL250R. We think the source coil is at fault but on test it gives 76 Ohms resistance.

  9. New MOT rules exhaust noise???

    Dominator / FMX
    I'm hopeful to get the old Dominator back on the road this month, however a friend advised there are new MOT rules regarding the exhuast noise. His CBR300 recently failed a test with a modified exhaust. Now my Dominator has a single exhaust and its loud, not as loud as some bikes but I'm...
  10. HISS

    Transalp
    So, on Friday night I parked my '07 650 TA in the garage, everything was fine. On the Saturday morning I tried to fire it up and it just spun on the starter with no hint of life.
