  1. 125 rattle once warmed up

    Varadero
    Hi all! Not the first post I'd hoped to start with, but still :) I've had my 2008 125 Varadero for a couple of years without issue, recently though if the engine heats up, it'll get a hideous sounding rattle at around 2k-4k revs. The rattle doesn't seem to be a rhythmic ticking, it literally...

  4. Ignitech CDI for RD04

    Africa Twin
    Just sounding out opinions, really... Out this morning, engine cut out and wouldn't fire up again. Good charge in the battery, plenty of fuel (half a tank, give or take) but the last few weeks my tacho has been taking 2 or 3 minutes to start working. I took off the side panels and seat...

  9. Fuel pump issues

    Varadero
    I have a 2000 model Varadero 1000 and a recent journey in the bush found me crossing a couple of rivers that were, um a little deeper than expected. The water was at least 40cm deep which was over the level of the fuel pump. I rode home without a hitch, but experienced problems on my next outing...
  10. Erratic Idle

    Africa Twin
    Hi All My 97 AT has been faultless since I bought it 6 months ago. It has now developed a bit of an erratic idle. Once its warmed up she is fine and idles at about 1200rpm. However when its first started up either in the morning or evening it just wont idle. If i put the choke on it makes no...

    Well, the KMX200*, she lives again!! After 4 years and more of being ignored in the container, I got the bike out a week or ten days ago and have been going over it thoroughly, cleaned the carb and tank of the crud/rust etc, freed brakes off and the like. New battery fitted and an air filter (on...
  12. Repairs to Oxford Hot Grips

    Bodgers Corner
    The throttle Hot Grip had rotated round and the wires pulled out. Yesterday I did a bot of t'internet surfing and read a post by a sparky on a Scottish forum who'd repaired his so I thought "I'll give it a go, nowt to lose as it doesn't work anyway!" Cut back the rubber housing until I could...
  13. Strange Problem...

    Africa Twin
    Had a strange problem with the bike earlier this evening... Went down to the garage a mile away and got some bits. Then rode the bike for about another few miles. Overtook a car and was doing about 60 when all of a sudden it lost power and sounded really rough. It didn't want to rev. Whacking...

  16. First service on AT

    Africa Twin
    I have assembled the tools read the manual, looked here and the weather has warmed up. Last excuse gone. I checked the valves, changed the plugs oil and filter. I was glad I did the research first. The jobs are all quite straightforward but accessing them is a nightmare. I lashed out on a Honda...

    Hi guys, Just fell in love with my xlv 750r, have only purchased in the last month and have ridden it everyday! But now once it's warmed up it keeps dropping down to one cylinder, I've had a quick look over it and found that one of the plug leads was slightly damaged which I have now fixed but...
  19. Throttle/carb release spring sticking?

    Mechanical Advice
    After my TA 600 has warmed up the throttle wont always drop back to tick over revs the only way is to manually push the spring back down. So how easy is it to remove the spring and give it a good clean to see if it stops it sticking since apparently the part is no longer available?
  20. Fast idle on choke

    BMW
    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...
