  2. Hi from new member

    I'd like to introduce myself....................
    Hi Decided it was time to join the forum, I've owned a '86 XL 600R that due to being laid up for a few years I've started to recommission, but as it was (and is) still off the road when the summer started I brought a '96 NX 650 Dommie that was ready to ride. Problem is I'm spending all my spare...

  4. RD07A stopped yesterday

    Mechanical Advice
    Hi everyone A wee running problem I'm having at the moment with an 8 day Europe trip coming up in 10 days! So no pressure for me then! Put new battery in. No electrics - no Tripmaster display or turn over. Went through every circuit testing for continuity and spraying connections with...
  5. Just when things were looking better - b*llocks

    Dominator / FMX
    So the weekend was supposed to be a wife free bike stripping and rough tickover solving couple of days with maybe a cheeky ride out or two. All started well other than an exhaust valve inspection cap trying to break while being removed but I managed to remove it with only minor damage. The...

  9. And this weekend . . . . Ardnamurchan

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Paid the Ardnamurchan peninsular a visit on Friday, seeing as how Rederic of ABR forum had organised a little gathering at Strontian. Took the long way there via the Lecht, Glenshee, Pitlochry and Glencoe - no worthwhile photo’s from any of those locations – but I took a few from on the busy...

  11. Exhaust Help

    Dominator / FMX
    Morning All, I was wondering if someone could measure the internal diameter of the tail pipe exit on the dominator exhaust for me please? I got my domi scrambler running at the weekend but it's ear bleed loud so I want to design a baffle to go in the cans I'm running. From reading other posts...
  12. CRF1000L Windscreens & turbulence. Scepticism, humility and possibly poor spelling.

    Africa Twin
    CRF1000L Windscreens & turbulence. Scepticism, humility and possibly poor spelling. I thought I'd briefly share my journey to achieving the holy grail of a wind and turbulance free ride. Relatively, of course. So, standard screen was, to be frank, rubbish for me. Wind right in the face...

  15. Design Fault with Front wheel Axle Holder

    Transalp
    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...
  16. who was asking about speed wobbles a while back?

    Transalp
    I remember a post recently about front end wobble on a TA....more specifically, I think it was on a 700, and various owners seemed to think it was almost inevitable... Anyway, in the interests of security I have two U Locks- one is a Kryptonite New York mini, which weights in at a shade over...
  17. It still works!!

    Africa Twin
    Hi All, It’s been a while since I was last here. I have a RWB 03 XRV 750 that has lived in a bush for the last 10 years. I know serious neglect but this weekend I have had it shipped to my new address. Seat off, jump leads out, phew not seized it turns over on the starter motor and tried to...

  19. Smallest van to fit a 650 in

    Transalp
    I’m working down in Dorset and thinking of hiring a van to collect my bike one weekend, rather than spend 6 hours on the train and then 5 hours back mostly on motorways. It also means I can bring another suitcase of bits and pieces with me, I work at sea so spend months away at a time. Can I...
  20. Dominator cut out - revs drop out

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi Guys, Not been around much lately, not had much to report or not been best placed to assist. Have been lurking in the background though. Tonight on the way home from work I had a nightmare. Bike started to cut out from the moment I set off, I initially thought the bike was cold. All the...
