    Hello, I've recently acquired a 1972 Honda XL250 Motosport and am currently restoring the bike. Before breaking the bike down, I noticed when kick starting the bike that it would make a sound (something like a crude click) and almost feel like it 'gave way' or was 'stripping/slipping' (for lack...

    Hello there! I was rebuilding my carbs while looking at the Honda fiches, and saw that a gasket on my carb is positioned differently. On the fiches, the order is: 28-1-15, so the metal collar (15) sits on the carb, the gasket (1) sits on the metal collar, and the plastic plate (28) sits on the...

  5. Dominator / FMX
    Hello! I have recently started a new build, my dreambike a Dominator Tracker/Scrambler type... I really need some technical advice. I feel like an idiot and extremely embarrased. I bought a stock rear rim and had it laced as some of the others have done in here. I was under the impression that...

    Just wondering if anyone got any photos or advice for the modifications needed to fit my CG125 tank to my Dominator?? Any Help would be much appreciated? As they say, a photo worth a thousand words, so a photo of the underside of a modified tank would be ideal.

    After covering my winter bike with a coating of ACF 50 to keep the crud off, I was wondering what cleaning products would be the best to get the winter muck and grime off. Its time to clean and service the bike now that winter appears to be over.:thumbup:

    Hello from winter Norway! I have a question regarding the Temp gauge! When the needle points above the C or at low operating temp, the needle is "quiet" in other words does not moove like crazy up and down! When the temperator rises and the pointer passes the middle of the gauge, it starts to...

    Hi guys, been a tad windy today. Gust took out an oak in the field and also blew bike over onto car. Bugger. Now is there an aftermarket tank to improve range? Any options. Will a 650 tank fit? If not anyone got a decent tank? I await your wise words☺️

    So my trusty 700 Transalp was recently in at the dealers having a small fortune spent on it - actually I think the dealers are very good, but it still makes me wince. Anyway, they pointed out to me the dreaded cracking of the wheel rims where the stainless spokes meet the ally rims. It's ok...

    Guys, as you may recall I am a slow and steady rider, I still cant get round bends at a good speed or with much confidence but working on it. Tonight though on the way home there was diesel, or what I assume to be diesel over two lanes of the road (my direction of travel) which caused my nerves...

    I think stickers can be nice but only if they are credible. For example I´m thinking of Rugged Roads, Michelin, Motul and HRC but the latter is not true and it's as awesome as having a t-shirt that tells you that I have a thousand money in my back pocket ;) What parts does not feel as...

    Hi all I'm not quite happy with the Honda OEM centre stand. It is not the most stable because the bike, when put on the centre stand, sits rather close to the centre stands changeover point (difficult finding the correct words, I hope it's clear what I mean), it reduces ground clearance and it...
