    What a day - wind at speeds greater than the capability of my 'ickle @, rain coming across the road, blown by the above wind! And just occasionally some of that bright stuff called "sunshine" (I may have spellt that wrong as I'm not used to using the word :D). Myself and Lowflyer met up at the...

    Right as promised here is the report on my recent discovery of a cheaper or easier transalp exhaust modification. It all started when I studied this picture:- There are probably many of us who have a copy of this bike. Where it comes from I do not know or remember but we’ve all probably sat...

    All packed and ready for our weekend away, leave the house, and note that I've got a warning light on. Not pleased! :angry7: Oil light, backed up by the flashing oil can symbol on the speedo. Back to the house (getting annoyed :angry5:), luggage off, fairing panels off, hunted high and low...

  5. XR
    The XR is at it again!! Its had its head re done and thats all fine, but now I have aquired an annoying rattle. Im hoping its not too serious and Andy at my local bike shop is wondering if its something on the balancer shaft. It seems to start once the bike has been warmed and done a mile or so...

    Hi, New to the forum and new to XRs. Does anyone know why it should develop a worrying clattering noise when its warmed up? I'm guessing the cam chain or tensioner (but why doesn't it clatter when cold?). Also when it warms up the clutch has a tendancy to drag. A few revs slip it and it's...

    Ireland and Scotland [Very long and lots of Pics] Hi All, I have been meaning to post up the pictures of my trip since I got back but only getting around to it now... Anyway, the plan was to spend a week riding around on my first proper tour on the bike so I decided to leave from my home in...

    I recently had a full service done on my 2001 TA, including new chain etc, valves, plugs oil - all the normal bits. I also had a new set of Conti Escapes fitted - I think I previously had Trailwings but they came with the bike so never checked. I wanted more of a road tyre and the Contis seem to...

    Met up with Lord Vader and [email protected] at the appointed hour. :thumbup: Vader made a real superhuman effort to be pleasant, :evil4: right up till the moment [email protected] arrived - then his Lordship roared CAFFINE LETS GO - and so it was off to the Ace to meet up with Whealie and get stuck into a decent...
  13. Africa Twin
    Evening All As you know I bought my Africa Twin a couple of months ago and I absolutely love it. However, I am still only learning about the mechanical side of things. I understand how everything works but I have a couple of niggling problems and wonder if anyone else can help. 1. Battery...

    This may seem like a simple question with a simple answer, but there's gotta be more to it. My RD04 is a low mileage bike (17,000) but has always been a bit tempreMENTAL starting. As follows... Normal day, normal temp/humidity for the UK, good plugs, good battery, choke cables and plungers...
  16. Africa Twin
    I had a bit of a sticky choke syndrome again, which only began in the last mile of my journey home on Friday night. As soon as I slowed from motorway speeds to a roundabout I noticed it didn't really want to tickover although the rest of the rev range seemed fine. Due to family trouble I...
  17. Dominator / FMX
    ive recently discovered that if i turn the handlebars to the right when the bikes on its sidestand when its being warmed up, the idle speed goes right down and stalls, almost as if its being fuel starved. i doubt this is it as the handlebars are nowhere near any fuel delivery pipe as far as i...

  19. Africa Twin
    When I collected the bike i bought of flebay during the week it didn't fire up on 2 cylinders and seemed quite lumpy. It warmed up then picked the front cylinder up and seemed OK. I wasn't too woried about this, figured it must just be carburation or electrical. Sat down yesterday morning...
