  1. Varadero
    Hi there Just wondering if anyone has the fitting instructions for the Honda OE centre stand for the Varadero (1000)?? If so, could you please scan and upload here, or I can PM you my email address. Just given her a good thorough clean and noticed the stand could do with removing and...
  2. XL
    I am just about to renovate the wheels on my 1983 XL 600 LMF and need a torque wrench for the spokes and a bit to fit, the head is an allen key 6 side affair, can anybody tell me what size I need to order and where to get a decent wrench that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, I live just outside of...

    Any one know what the torque settings are for the rear brake disk? I put a new chain and sprockets, cush drive and rear disk on the bike the other week and getting some weird things happening, grabbing at low speed, and having trouble getting it right and have the mot next week so its belt and...

    1986 Yamaha DT 125 LC3. I need to locate the two bolts that hold the front brake caliper onto the forks because jnr forgot to tighten them up when he was checking his brake pads for wear a couple of weeks ago. They both fell out on the way to the mot place so they need to be replaced. I found a...

    So after 23,000 or so miles since the last chain / sprocket change , time to be changed again. Honda front sprocket , is a bit worse for wear . Changing for another OE part. Rear sprocket gets AFAM treatment and chain is AfAM also . Work has stopped as I need to clean all the Oily...
  6. Africa Twin
    ever get the feeling bikes are getting too complicated? Triumph Tiger Explorer review .... the bike in question (or, at least, the full-spec option) features semi-active suspension, cornering ABS, cruise control, a torque-assist clutch, a Hill-Hold 'handbrake' function, a traction control...
  7. Dominator / FMX
    New to the Big Single experience and new to the forum. I bought one of Bobn's well fettled Vigors on a whim because I wanted a Winter bike. Knowing nothing about them its all been a learning curve, and as it happens a real good one. Ideally suited to our sugar beet lorrry, mud encrusted country...
  8. Transalp
    I swapped the Bandit for the Transalp mainly because the Transalp is SO MUCH MORE comfortable. I did of course test ride the Transalp before I bought it and I knew immediately that it was different! It has taken me a three weeks or so to discover how different. For starters the gearing is so...
  9. Transalp
    Returned to bikes in May this year when I bought a 600 Bandit. It was comfortable enough but after a short time I was yearning for the more upright and relaxed position I saw the Adventure bike riders enjoying. Finally went in to a local dealer (Onyerbike just outside Aylesbury) and was...

    I've probably mentioned this before. Smith & Allan in Darlington great priced oils, paints, wd40, waxoil etc. They often have monthly discount codes on farcebook. Eg, 2x5l of their own branded 10/40 semi synth motorcycle oil to ma spec, I've just paid under £26 inc vat (collected - they do mail...
  11. Dominator / FMX
    I'm a big advocate of de-baffling and up-jetting the FX/SLR/FMX series to improve the performance, economy and sound of the bike. However there are times when it's necessary to be able to slip about a little more discretely, setting off to Newark Autojumble at 06:50 on a Sunday morning for...
  12. Dominator / FMX
    Hi chaps As some might know from my introduction, I purchased a 1988 RD02 NX650 a little while back. Noisy valve cover lead me to believe that the valve were not adjusted properly. While waiting for feeler gauges to arrive, I went out and bought a torque wrench (Halford's pro 8 - 60Nm jobbie)...
  13. Mechanical Advice
    hola mes amigos, Up until now I've always been a "seat it and twist it 1/4 to 1/2 a turn" type of chap but I've found myself pondering the virtues of a torque wrench recently - however I'm somewhat put off by the price - ....but I'm also aware that a penny pinched is a thread stripped so. Do...

It is the EXTREME TORQUE SHOW! There will be extreme FMX at the Extreme Torque Show from the latest talents and global acts...
  15. Dominator / FMX
    I've posted on here many times about the transformation that can be wrought on an FX650 by removing the baffle tubes from the standard silencers and going up to a 15t front sprocket and 175 main jet. I've always eschewed intake modifications because of a long and painful history of Honda bikes...

  17. Dominator / FMX
    Right folks, just thought I'd poll opinions here on what sort of speed/RPM you sit your FX/SLR/FMX at when on long motorway runs, when fitted with the standard gearing combination? I'll start the ball rolling with 60-65MPH indicated at about 4500RPM, the reason I pick this speed is that 4500RPM...
