Re: Yuletide 2020

noted John--but put me down please if it goes ahead--I quite understand the situation--ideally we need a working vaccine and until then it will be iffy and solo trips and wild camping are the order of the day.

Re: Longest Day Ride

I have a 600 transalp, and a Honda CB500 of the same year(1998). I have just fitted a stainless silencer off the later CB500 X (2013) as it happens(requires some welding)--saves weight and is freer flowing than the heavy and rust prone stock black one. On performance I have to say that its the oppos...

Re: WK400 owners thread.

Why are you taking out the lambda sensor--they tend to help at idle etc--The ECU needs an input. Running without/causing a fault code may put the ECU in "limp mode". Technically they are an oxygen sensor and usually fitted to help the catalyst warm up a bit-in other words they tend to at least riche...

Re: Lomo 13 litre Adventure panniers

They are pretty heavy duty and are a bit of a faff to strap on and off if you are taking them on and off regularly. However, they work well with long straps and very secure--and will take a fall--I ran them to this years Dragon--and it was WET--and they stayed dry. Agree--buy direct.

Re: crfrally 300rally wr450 690adv t7 yam africa twin retired derbyshire lanes

that was rocky!!--and david's stock rally went through it all--I'm hoping that the bashplate is still there--but probably well battle scared by now!. The T7 looks impressive--and have they changed the mapping/fuelling to give it more torque as it came from the MT07 road bike (rev oriented).

Re: Ktm 640 safety switches bypass

I had a 640 Adventure from new and did 40k plus miles on it without getting stopped once--well,once in Romania---- I went to pull the clutch in and nothing happened--soon fixed with some mineral oil--apparently there is a thicker seal thats in the gearbox that does a better job on the clutch slave a...

Re: Ktm 640 safety switches bypass

Just curious--you say the ECU checks and it can't be bypassed?. On my WR250R it HAD EXUP but all that is off and replaced with a custom little box with diodes and resistors as the ECU does a check "sweep" when the ignition is turned on and if the motor is open circuit or apparently seized it throws ...

Re: The Yamaha Tenere thread

Just a heads up--and Bob knows about this--we are nearly there on a carbon/kevlar bashplate--just finessing the final fit--and using ferdie's T7 as a test--and he's been running this prototype for a while. We'll launch it on www.kodamacomposites.co.uk when we are ready--just making sure that it bolt...

Re: Great Western Trail (TET)

keep me updated please--I've ridden trails in Devon and Cornwall, but not done a route--and you know that you should never trail ride alone!!--so could well be joining if thats ok--I assume camping or Band B ?--the thing about the UK is that you can bail or ride around a difficult bit without any dr...
