Re: Speed Camera Warning

The HADECS3 Cameras have now reached the West Country and are around Bristol in the variable limit zones of the M4 and M5. Going north on the M5 about halfway between J17 (Cribbs Causeway) and J18 for the A38. Also, almost opposite on the other carriageway going south between J18 and J17. On the M4 ...

Re: motorcyclespareparts.eu anybody used them

Hi John I had tried a few large Honda dealers online and the price is always the same 99.98 for my bit, as is Lings. That is why I am so surprised to be quoted less than half from motorcyclespareparts.eu Hi Crofty, I looked up a couple of parts for my Blackbird on the site you mention and from memo...

Re: XT1200 Hard start

Don't know for sure, but I was messing with fitting HID lights and beam alignment so had to keep turning the ignition on and off. Had the starting problem so checked the S10 Forums where the method I described was suggested and it worked for me. Did so on two or three occasions.

Re: XT1200 Hard start

I understand that the problem is caused by the fuel injection squirting a shot of fuel into the cylinders every time you turn the ignition on, in readiness for starting. So if for any reason you turn the ignition on and off repeatedly without starting and letting the engine run for a while, then the...

Re: motorcyclespareparts.eu anybody used them

Hi Crofty, I have used a similar supplier recently for Honda parts, these are Lings, just do a Google search for them. All parts and prices are shown in the same way and they ship out either the same or next day, normal post or UPS. I ordered a part on a Sunday and it arrived 9.30am Tuesday morning....

Re: S10 Vs Africa Twin

Thanks for the comments Mike, Over the years I've had a lot of bikes and not really make a bad choice until this year when I bought a Kawasaki GTR1400 that I just couldn't gel with and sold after two months and 3,500 miles.

Re: S10 Vs Africa Twin

Hi, I recently sold my S10 mostly due to having covered a good mileage and wanting to change to a lighter, more manageable bike. I don't go off road but do tour Europe every year and had considered the new Africa Twin as a friend had recently bought one. I wasn't wanting the spoked and large diamete...

Re: Plymouth-Santander Ferry , Avoid being loaded on the bottom deck?

I second that about wet Deck and Ramps, had the same issue on a very wet crossing from Caen back to Portsmouth in June with a fully loaded Kawasaki GTR1400. Told Brittany Ferries of the problem in their post-journey survey - so far no response. Trouble being that there is no anti-slip coating, just ...

Re: Super Tenere

The only problem that I had with the OEM panniers was that the Hinge being at the front so could not open them with a wide Top Box on the Bike. Had to fit a narrow single Helmet Givi Top Box.
