Re: Blocked Oil Screen.

This is the only way the engine gets its oil as everything is pump-fed, gearbox an' all, so its pretty serious! There is a second oil pump which returns the oil from the sump [crankcase] back to the top of the frame, it has its own oil screen but is reasonably self cleaning as its horizontal and mos...

Re: Blocked Oil Screen.

I have checked many on DRs and DRZ and they only clog up if something "bad" has happened to the engine, generally a lack of oil leading to overheating and engine damage with loads of metal and carbon particles being pumped round.... This is the gravity feed to the oil pump though the pump will "suck...

DR350 Project £500

I have realised that I just don't have the time to put together a DR that's in many pieces in my garage. It was a runner and my plan was to put an electric start engine in it. Its a J reg 350 enduro, V5 in my name and I have pretty much the whole bike but the engine is stripped for inspection and wi...

Re: Off road tyre choice for supermoto wheels.

Be aware that the SM DRZ has much firmer suspension which is not ideal for off-road, though plenty seem to do it.

Re: Heated Waistcoats, but not 12V

Thanks for the replies. I think the Avade is not really for me but looks perfect for say cycling, I want just a vest ideally with no sleeves.

Yoyo and Geecee what makes did you get then?

Re: Heated Waistcoats, but not 12V

Well, not exactly - my Gerbing bodywarmer can use a separate battery but it is a bit bulky for use away from the bike. The ones I'm looking at are of lighter build and use a 5V battery pack like one you would use to charge a phone. So can be recharged with USB or phone charger - just makes the whole...
