  1. Malaysian Airlines MH370 - Theories?

    Chatter
    It seems to have garnered more news than what's going on in Crimea, I guess because it's a mystery. The worst case scenario does have to be considered, BUT, I'm of the opinion that there is still a glimmer of hope that everyone on that Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 could still be alive. What...
  2. Insurance advice anyone? or just read and have a laugh at my expence!!

    Chatter
    Hi Guys, If anyone has any real advice then please offer it, if you just want to take the piss out of me then feel free, I can take it....

  3. Which chain oiler (If any)?

    Transalp
    Hi all, Having used the search function, I know this topic has been covered in various guises but hopefully I have a slightly new slant on it! I'm replaicng the chain and sprockets on my bike after just shy of 14k miles. Not too impressed with that, previous bikes have lasted much longer and...
  4. alternative to rock salt

    Chatter
    i've heard cat litter can be used instead of rock salt. i have 2 posssible theories on how it works :- 1 it simply adds more grip to the slippy stuff. 2 it encourages all the local cats to p##s on it so melting the slippy stuff. if you have any more ideas please comment.
  5. Railway crossing

    Riding
    I came across a level railway crossing today. The red lights were flashing but the barriers showed no sign of closing, the 2 cars in front of me just drove through. What do you do in this situation? stop or go? Please dont tell me more theories;)
  6. The 2007 National Meet Awards

    Past National Meets
    Just a quick run through in reverse order for those that missed the awards ceremony itself. 2007 XRV Pool Champion went to MidlifeCrisis for a staggering 8 ball clearance from break. 2007's Most Controversial Post(s) Cup went to Shep for his conspiracy theories and politico-financial verbal...

    Transalp

  8. that vibration

    Africa Twin
    spent a while looking at all of the past posts about engine vibrations - seems like there are a lot of theories, with many agreeing that it might be a twin thing and others saying that there bikes are the smoothest things ever. I have an increasing vibration from about 4500 revs - carbs are...
  9. rectifier/regulator?

    Africa Twin
    Hi My RDO4 cut out yesterday,all lights etc were still on,when I tried starting it again the starter only clicked then all power went off.on removing the sidepanel Ifound the main 30A fuse melted into its holder,suspect rec/reg would be the root cause of this but any one else any theories...
  10. Snatchy Brakes

    Africa Twin
    Apologies for this one, it's probably really simple. Under front braking my RD04 seems really snatchy at low speeds, possibly its just not as noticeable at higher speeds. It's sorta intermittent, and if stopped, when I pump the lever there seems to be varying amounts of resistance. I'm a bit...
  11. correct revs

    Africa Twin
    Anybody got any theories on correct revs at gear change ? My feeling is low revs say 2700 to 3300 the gear change is smoother and less clunky than at higher revs but the bike is sluggish . Higher revs equates to rougher gear change. I am refering to first 2 gear changes . What tends to make...
