  1. Theoretical . XR chrome tubes with springs in AT forks

    Africa Twin
    Hello, I am with my front fork in pieces and as i have not one but 2 XR forks , i am thinking what would be the pros and cons. Both are 43mm in diameter. The XR are cartridge forks, the front will be raised as the tubes are longer. The air buble bigger and in theory the whole dampening will be...
  2. Fuel filter RD07

    Africa Twin
    Just fitting a Facet fuel pump and wondering if I can fit a different fuel filter with a clear window so if it's captured any crap from dodgy fuel outside Europe I can see it has and clean it. Sounds a good idea in theory but anyone know of a clear case fuel filter that's cleanable? Thanks in...
  3. RD03 Carb Theory Question

    Africa Twin
    I'm in the midst of restoring my RD03 (very pleased so far). Last night I was finishing up the carbs and noticed that the jets are rated at 130 and 125. Checking the manual confirmed that the front carb gets the 125 and the rear carb gets the 130. My question is why? Why would Honda want the...

  5. Oh dear, what a pillock!

    Chatter
    Manchester United's (whoever they are) Paul Scholes has car stolen. Just goes to further the theory that footballers are not the sharpest knives in the draw. Stiil, he should be able to afford another. Wonder if his insurers have stopped laughing yet? :D 100% free webcam site! | Awesome...
  6. Weird Speedo thing

    Africa Twin
    So my RD03 speedo isn't working. Cable turns, magnet turns inside the housing, but the speedo cup (the aluminum bowl that is turned by the magnet) does not turn. If I use my drill, I can get the needle moving easily. Is it possible that my speedo cable isn't turning fast enough? Any suggestions?

    Riding
    Well having just passed the motorbike theory test today I had a few observations. At this juncture I should point out I have been driving a car for 14 years. I dearly wish I could tell all of you experienced riders that it (theory and hazard test) will make me safer on a motorbike...

    Riding
    Passed :):):blob7:! Now for the big test :rolleyes:. MCQs were OK - not TOO difficult to guess that you're not supposed to give an injured casualty a cigarette instead of checking his/her breathing though there were one or two more technical questions that challenged my little brain somewhat...
