    Following some moronic behavious by a deckhand on Irish Ferries earlier in the week, I now need a replacement seat for my 2005 Vara! XL1000 V4 The stupid eedjit overtightened the ratchet strap in spite of being told not to.... and snapped the base plate so that it does not take my weight...

    For all you people out there that suffer with arse ache but don't have the dosh for expensive fixes I just had a brainwave, what's needed and what you get when you buy them is a air filed bladder, sooooo how about using ( wait for it) a Whoopie cushion. Just buy the biggest one you can get hold...

    Hi lads! I've started to notice a slight knocking on the right footpeg when in 4th gear. Maybe 2-4 knocks pr second. It's very weak or non-existant in lower gears. It goes away completely if I pull the clutch very lightly. Anyone knows what this might be? Cheers!

    Bidding stopped at £1650 on fleabay I stumped up £1850 at 46k miles. Every woman I know has laughed at the photo's and mentioned either Barbie or Jem and The Hologrammes. They are mostly mid 30's. it is 'Bold' but I quite like it. It seems sound, runs perfectly, starts on the button, handles...

    My 2001 Vara has a reoccurring problem. Whilst driving it suddenly loose all power and acts as it has ran out of fuel. And it keeps doing like that for some 50-100kms since it always happens when I'm on long distance drives with constant speed. If I stop and stand still it runs normal and...

    i have a 2004 650 After riding when I switch it off the petrol tank sounds like it's got a little baby duck in it. Ah bless ! Really weird it drives normally and seems normal in every way . I guess some sort of gurgling going on within the tank . If I put my ear to it I can hear it quite...

    on my 89 xl600v all of a sudden it started acting a little weird. on accelerating it would "bog" down a little on the low end and then when the rpms rose a little it ran normally. that problem seemed to mysteriously disappear. now when i try to start the bike it won't start. actually it will...

    Hi, Last summer I had some sort of engine failure with my AT (weird noise from the lower part of the engine). At least some bearing failure with the clutch has been solved. Anyway I am afraid that this is not the main reason for the sound.. I have't put the engine back to one piece yet and...

    Hey guys So dont use my AT a massive amount, maybe once a week max. Came to use it yesterday, started fine, i rode it about 5 miles. Stopped for about 3-4 hrs and returned to it. I fried it up and she started and ran for about 5 secs then faded out and wouldnt re start. I have tried again today...
  12. Dominator / FMX
    New to the forum and I need advice. 01 FX650 Vigor, had it since new. If I disconnect the pulse generator leads at the frame connection, should I be seeing a coil resistance and if so what should it be? Any advice gratefully received, no matter how weird.

    I have recently had two women I know, both married get really excited that I have an AT. 'Oh!! an Africa twin' and a weird lustful look in their eyes. My wife likes the bike and agreed with the other womens. Should we keep this a secret benefit of AT ownership. I have never had a member of the...

    I took the old Beemer down to my local Biker Cafe at the weekend and unlike my other bikes it generated a bit of interest amongst the patrons who are mainly ex forces (real or pretend), patch wearing rebels. I suppose all the rattling made them think it was a Harley :) Anyway I ended up...
  15. Dominator / FMX
    I know its a weird question but when you look over your dominator down to the footpegs are they meant to be offset . bearing in mind mine is the kickstart model so i understand the configuration of the right hand foot rest but as I look over the bike the left hand is about an inch father...

    Guys Really weird request coming up... Could any of you with heated grips please let me know what make and model, and what the resistance of each grip is? I'd also appreciate knowing if the grips are wired up in series, or in parallel. (If that's all gobbledygook to you, move on there's...

    My trip meter is acting a little weird as of lately. I could not pin point it, but this morning i discovered that It would only reboot with my dual beam HID kit on, when I start the bike. If they are off, it holds time and has no problem. I doubt its a power thing, but what are the ods of the...
