So....The ULEZ charge starts in just 3 weeks and their database still shows my bike as being liable for...
I'm thinking of buying a YSS to replace the very tired original shock.
I bought one for my 750AT and it jacked the rear up by 3". Nice shock but the seat is high now.

Hi all, i have been looking at getting some crash bars fitted to my XL650 v Transalp but was hoping for some advice as to what make or type to get.

Hi, my 16 yr old XL650 has a strange noise coming from the front cylinder bottom. It is audible when hot at idle rpm, it goes away when the rpm increases. The noise is NOT sharp(high pitched) like regular tappet noise , mine sounds like lightly knocking a hard object with a medium-light hammer...
Anyone know where I can get a carb rebuild kit in the uk for my xl650?
Something like this
