    Does the button f connect at the top of the page actually do anything? I have been on the XRV.Org facebook page and posted some ramblings but I do not recongnise any familier names on there. Do any of you use it?

    Help! I had the bike rolling roaded a couple of weeks back, the only change was to put 120 main jets in. Since then it's been harder to start so I guess the choke mechanism could have been disturbed? I blanked them off ages ago and it always started on the button since some initial problems...

  20. Ride Reports and Pictures
    At lunchtime to do a few trails near home. Most of them were dead ends and ended up at fields but one of them was a couple of miles long we made it through to the far end. It was pretty boggy in places as judging by the hoof prints and poo it sees a fair bit of equine traffic. As ever the...
