Re: Anyone heard from Garyboy?

Sorry to hear that Gary, best not to dwell on the news too much and just get out and ride, if you can. I've lost track of what the situation is in Wales? We are pretty much open in England, or at least we can ride as much as we like. Of course, unless you are a teenager, its sensible not to mingle c...

Re: Work Case #19 Honda CRF250R MX

Ah, yes, modern engines do bring some very complicated problems with them - I too had a new German car about 15 years ago that would "hiccup" in certain driving conditions that the dealer could never reproduce, until I managed to demonstrate it to the service manager. They resolved it eventually wit...

Re: Work Case #19 Honda CRF250R MX

Useful link thanks steve the grease. I left the company a while back so this particular problem is fortunately not my concern anymore ... Interestingly some of the more basic "power boost" plugs use a simple resistor/thermistor to fool the bike's ECU into thinking the outside temperature is cooler t...

Work Case #19 Honda CRF250R MX

Previous #18 TE450 Work Case #19 Honda CRF250R MX ------------------------------ The Honda MX bikes are fuel injected, and at the time just kick start with no battery, so how exactly did that all work then?! :o Well, somehow it did and only a kick or two would provide enough electrical power to fir...

Work Case #18 TE450

. Previous #17 FE450 I’ve already mentioned the wiring issues on the Italian built bikes and part of that was frequent problems with, or around, the relay powering the fuel pump. All manner of things could happen such as no power to the relay, the control wire to the ECU open circuit, stuck high, st...

Re: Fun and Games with a DR-Z400

You're probably right, apologies :oops: No need to apologise Bob, it's just a simple numbers game of where people are looking - the 350 thread is way out there! Yeah Bob, what were you thinking! 350's on a 400 thread, that's just the sort of crazy antics that will get you in trouble... :shock: :lol...

Re: Fun and Games with a DR-Z400

Thanks for a very entertaining tale Thanks! :) Do I get the feeling that the DR-Z400 engine is a bit less durable than the DR350? . Good question, and having had several of both I can't give it a definitive answer. All the ones I've had to work on have been the result of owner abuse or neglect - th...
