Re: Re-Jetting Carbs Question - Yamaha XVS650

You have several options really. Sometimes a bike will be a known quantity due to having a large user base who modify them, and as such jetting for known mods is posted on forums. Dyno tuning - get to know your carb, buy a set of jets, book a dyno session and then make adjustments based on the tests...

How many scooters out there!

Went out on a solo ride across Exmoor yesterday afternoon and just couldn't believe how many groups of scooters there were out there. Even some really old classic ones (smokey & stinky). Got a wiff of Castrol R40 more than once, lovely smell that... takes me back to my miss-spent youth. Anyway.. tur...

Re: Recommendation for billinom8s motorcycle work

Helicoil is pretty much the standard repair for trail bikes, that have had a gorilla for a previous owner, do an oil change.

Re: Recommendation for billinom8s motorcycle work

Wouldn't use a helicoil on a sump as cant guarantee that that oil wouldn't seep through either of the threads. I would as it's the crush washer that forms the seal (between the sump bolt and the sump casing), or the Oring on more modern sump bolts, not the thread. The only thread type that is consi...

Re: Forum business card download?

Are you going to be Red5 meeting on the 25th?

I'm gonna try to be as I'm interested in that trip.

Failing that then can you scan one on both sides?
If so I can remake the business card from that and make that available for download.

Forum business card download?

Just wondering if this illusive forum business card is available for download so I can run a few off on my printer?

There been a few times recently when I could have pounced on vulnerable victim, and indoctrinated them into the forum. :)):

Re: Cornish Bimble Sunday 15th September 19 CANCELLED

Sorry Jay, I would have been up for this but until very recently I was suppose to be away this weekend.

Maybe next year we could look to doing something with a couple of nights camping planned in (or B&B) to make it a little more do'able for us.

Re: Advice Needed - New Helmet

Hi Sally & welcome.

I don't pay particular attention to the SHARP rating, in this country any helmet for sale from a reputable company will be safe enough for me.
I just tend to go for a half decent one that is in a sale somewhere, likely an outgoing model or colour.

Re: Hi Soutwestbikers,

Hi Gus & welcome.

Nice to meet you yesterday, I was on the KTM 1190 Adv btw.
I had a Vstrom 650 before my 1190 and thought it was a lovely bike, great for touring & comfort.

See you again soon.
