  1. Sounds like they understood the problem and identified required parts. Vaccum valve is a susspect. Good price and good to hear what seems to be very good service.
  2. It does indeed sound like a fuel issue. Can you " introduce " a second fuel supply while cranking the engine over. Some easystart or petrol in a spray bottle into the airbox would bypass the carb. If it starts its a fuel problem. Maybe the diaphram you mentioned, or the fuel tap, vaccum pump.
  3. I rode into Ob Khan national park Chiang Mai a few weeks ago. Nodded to entrance staff,straight in. 250 enduro bike, full riding gear etc. Bike is sensibly modified. Might be the answer.
  4. Painting plastic motorcycle parts

    Its a 2-tone one i have. The rear portion is black , and vented. Not trials bike style though.
  5. I meant "shouldnt" it have the full power , in keeping with the others. From a Aprilia RSV factory owner. Didnt Honda do this on some other bikes. Cant see the sense in it.
  6. Neilly. Thanks for taking the time to post the gear / RPM charts. My bikes doing 5,000 RPM at 60 KPH in top , if rev counter and speedo are true. Its not a highway cruiser !.
  7. Should the CBR 1000 RR SP have almost 200 BHP , as the BMW , Aprilia , Ducati , Kawasaki etc ?.
  8. Painting plastic motorcycle parts

    Acerbis copy fender is B 250 +.
  9. Neilly , nice modded bike. Could you tell me what revs your doing , in top gear , at 60 KPH. Cheers.
  10. The pre-payment i have an issue with. I always fill the tank - less visits / going out of my way to the station - but how do you know how much it will be. Same problem at some stations in England , at night you must pay before you pump.
  11. The standard tires on CRF or KLX,s are dual sport , so i would term them 50/50 rather than knobblys , but you can get more road styled tires , say 70/30 or 80/20 in the 21" / 18" front / rear sizes. A good solution , to give you two bikes in one , is another set of rims - 17" F&R - with some 100% grippy street tires.
  12. That shop near Warrarot sells some very good wheel sets for enduro and supermotard. CMkiwi , is that mechanics shop the one that does the cylinder head valve inserts and fork leg straightening ? CRF rattles can be cam chain , and / or , tensioner. Never a Honda strong point.
  13. Nae had some good scramblers , trails type bikes from the 90,s.. He closed and mooved 2 years ago. Dont know where he is now. Burning would be a good , but not cheap , place to start.
  14. Kawasaki W175 and 175SE

    Good find Allan. This same bike has been on sale in England for at least most of this year , as a Hanway. In England its a 125 cc bike for £ 2,299 / B 96,000 .
  15. Power steering.

    Slick 50 do a PAS fluid but im not sure if it fixes leaks. Another one to try.
