  10. Design Fault with Front wheel Axle Holder

    Was doing a routine check and found that the front axle holder was broken and the nuts on the studs were so loose that they could come off by hand. Anyway as I do not have torque wrench I managed to snap 1 stud off and then was trying to put a temporary support plate which caused the other stud...
  11. Where have all the big trail bikes gone?

    Other Bikes
    I was at the NEC for Motorcycle Live this week, and whilst the pages of the motorcycling press are plastered with "Adventure Bikes", it was noticeable that there weren't any big trail bikes at the show. If you want to spend £20k on 125+bhp and 250kg of touring bike on long travel suspension then...

  13. Rd07a exhaust downpipe nut torque settings

    Africa Twin
    I'm about to tighten the nuts holding the exhaust down pipe to the cylinder head on my 2002 RD07A. My Haynes manual tells me that the torque setting should be 27nm (or 20 lbft), which strikes me as a bit high considering that I've just done the same job on my CB1300 and the torque setting there...

    Hi all I recently bought a 1983 HONDA Xr350 in pieces. I'm slowly getting things back together. My question is right now I am trying to figure out how the kickstart shaft goes in. The shop manual says to set it by rotating the shaft counterclockwise but the pictures show it rotate clockwise so...

    Hello, I recently changed my air filter, and went for a ride. It made a big difference - better sound and more low down torque. On this ride, I stopped for some fish and chips. Went to start my bike and the box next to the battery (relay?) made a clicking noise, but no power to the bike. I...
