  2. Fuel tap question

    Transalp
    On my XL600VV there is 2 vacuum pipe attachments on the fuel tap. The one forward to the front wheel is the correct one to attach the vacuum pipe to, correct? If so, is the other one left open? Looks strange and there is a hissing coming from it when it is ticking over.. Seems not correct...

    Seeing John's post about the carb on his R80 reminds me of a question I have. When I got the bike it would only run on one pot when cold so I stripped the carbs and cleaned everything out paying special attention to the choke circuits and now the bike starts on both cylinders from the off. The...

  10. I feel another rant coming on

    Chatter
    I just can't help myself. I must be spending too much time at work and not enough time on my bike. So some chap decided it would be a good idea to take a swim in the River Thames and disrupts a bunch of toffs out for a paddle in their boats and gets six months in jail. Maybe he should have...

  16. ticking sounds when taking off centre stand and when running at low rev

    Transalp
    Whenever I took my 650 TA off its centre stand (engine off), I can hear some ticking sound from the front end of the bike. The sound also appears when bike running at low gear. I am sure it is not from the engine. I have check all fasterners and they seem to be reasonably tight. So now I...

    Africa Twin
    I usualy can ignore it and as i had it for the past 15k miles now and it hasn't got any worst i'm not to worried about it but somebody has sugested that it might be the cam chain tensioners. To refresh your memory the noise is a sort of ticking, rateling noise only when the engine is at normal...
