  2. Africa Twin
    Hi all. I've still got my annoying noise in 2nd gear. I've now more or less eliminated the chain and sprokets (they are newish, no stiff links the main shaft splines are worn but the sporket is mounted in such a way that its eliminated the movement there so I'm discounting that as well), the...
  3. Africa Twin
    Hi, Have a 1994 RD07. I must use choke to start her when engine is cold (10+ hours since last run). If no choke is applied she just turns over and over again, little to no coughing. If I apply choke, she starts right on first turnover. Once started and lightly warmed, will start and run without...
  4. XR
    Hi All, First post here and unfortunately a depressing tale of woe. I picked up a 2000 XR400 two weeks ago. It only had 12,000 km but was a bit ropey and I probably should have walked away but I was inspired by the Internet reputation and almost cult following of the bike and reports of bullet...
  5. Transalp
    I woke up on Thursday (was off work) & thought "I fancy a go on a 700 Alp" - I'm not one for test riding a bike just for the sake of it but have recently spoken to people who have experienced both & I have been left more than a little intrigued, so I decided to pop into Hunts of Manchester...
  6. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Had a spare day so decided to hit the trails in North Wales once again.....but this time opted not to drop straight down to Llangollen but instead to try a few different trails. I had marked up a "Vale of Clwyd" map (OS 264) a while ago but had yet to sample the trails. So decided today was the...
  7. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Having had a change in circumstances which meant I got an extra two months in the sunny UK, as well as being unable to sell my bike for (what I determined to be) a reasonable price, I decided to reward myself with a ride from London up through Wales and around Scotland. As I'd never been before...
  8. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Had a great ½ day trail riding around Llangollen until a slight mishap occurred (See http://www.xrv.org.uk/forums/ride-reports-pictures/47167-dont-go-solo.html ). Altogether a great mornings riding, hitting about 40 – 50 miles of trails along the way, varying from easy farmland tracks, to...
  9. Ride Reports and Pictures
    My mate Ben and I took our respective missuses for a run up to Glen Lyon on Bank Holiday Monday. Sunny and crisp weather but we were warmed up with soup, crusty bread and scones in the Post Office tea room. A run up the glen provided us with fantastic scenery all made even more interesting...
  10. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Departed from Westbury, Wiltshire on Friday 26th. Rode up into the Cotswolds to Cheltenham then iPod on to hit the M5 then M6 to the Lakes. Stayed with friends at Graythwaite for the night. Saturday To Ambleside and up 'the struggle' (no kidding) to Kirkstone Pass, fantastic ride with mountains...
  11. Africa Twin
    Question: Yesterday I have changed spark plugs (NGK) on my AT RD07, oil filter and engine oil (Motul 10w-40 full synthetic). After I warmed up engine, black smoke started coming out from exhaust. It stopped and then it happened again, and then stopped. Now my concern is maybe I made a mistake...

  13. Transalp
    Early last November, we bought a 2nd car as last winter was a bit grim on bike. I may have made the comment that we must be in for a mild winter and I will hardly use car. Well, remember the rain in November- then I got involved in Cumbria Bridges Inspection and caught the flu - The frost and...
  14. Product Reviews
    I must admit I was a little sceptical at first….mostly about my sewing skills…but after two attempts, I got the element running exactly how I wanted it! I went for a large zig-zag across my back …covering the kidney area, up and down the face of the coat twice each side and two loops up the...
  15. Dominator / FMX
    Hi, I have just joined the forum and this is my first post - a mate who's emigrating has given me his french registered Dominator 650 (:thumbright:), which I eventually hope to register in the UK. I have decided to do a major renovation of the bike first as it has been unused and stored outside...
  16. Dominator / FMX
    I have read numerous posts saying that if you increase your idle speed to 100 or so more than what is specified in the owners manual, it will remedy the stalling at traffic lights problem, but I've had two dommies and this hasn't worked. My idling speed was a tad high, so I turned it down while...
  17. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Seeing how I own a web site in Australia and an XR, my two closest mates own big XR's, one of my moderators (and mate) owns another XR I get to do a lot of riding in a hell of a lot different areas (not just near home **** ;)) I have been lucky with the amount of riding I have done and the...
  18. Transalp
    My 87 Transalp has a rattling clutch when the lever is pulled in. It's been stored for years and I finally got it back on the road with only 4000Km on the clock. I can't imagine that the clutch has given up so early but wonder if something could have worked itself loose. It perfect when it's...
  19. XR
    hi- as a new owner of an xr400,(year 2004) and my handbook is entirely in Italian and Spanish, how do I check oil level? ( yes I do know you remove the dipstick etc) but the question is when- ie cold, or warmed up, should it stand for a while to settle the level- sometimes it seems high on the...
