Re: Left pot miss fire back fire

As PhilO has said, you're just changing parts like there's no tomorrow. You need to start again with a methodical diagnosis and the first place to start is to give the bike a FULL major service - if the problem still exists after that then you need to approach the issue logically - I'll give you 100...

Re: Engine Numbers

Well the number you quote is a simple factory designation stamped on the machined flat. Fair chance it was simply a repacement engine that never got stamped.

Re: Engine Numbers

Certainly replacement engines came unstamped with the expectation that the dealer would do it to match the original. Many didn't bother. The other possibility is that a much later engine has been fitted (Eng. No was stamped on the flat plate that you refer to. That plate was also stamped on the earl...

Re: K75S: loss of power and ticking sound

OK, looks pretty simple...

The clicking relay sounds like the normal ABS relay.

The uneven running and the spark is because you've lost an pilot mixture screw on the middle cylinder. Left and right you should see a rubber capped screw for cylinders 1 & 3 - No. 2 should be in that hole...

Re: '83 R80RT. A Realistic Ownership Prospect?

An Airhead is capable of doing most things but lie anything they do need maintenance and it's likely that you would need to learn to do much of the work yourself as specialists are few and far between. There is plenty of knowledge and guidance here tho.

Re: A Blaze of Autumn Colour

The trail cams do that pretty well, Ced. The seasonal stream on the Northern boundary is also useful as there are a few muddy patches where the animals go to drink - it's fairly easy to get close enough to ID the tracks there.. What I'm really looking forward to is the spring when I see what springs...

Re: Clutch slipping even with new clutch!

OK, clearly there's an undefined issue somewhere and equally clearly you're running in circles with it. So... take a deep breath and start again with EXACTLY what you have. Was it slipping before you started, why did you change it, are parts used genuine, new etc? What is your actual process of fitt...

Re: My Woodland - A Walk Through

Have you considered introducing hedgehogs into the woodland?
Hadn't thought of it, Ced but I'm introducing absolutely nothing either animal, vegetable or mineral until at least a year has passed as I have little idea of what's currently there and I'd don't want to alter the ecological balance.

Re: My Woodland - A Walk Through

True, Jay but you also need to be able to remove it in one piece and that isn't an option without felling a lot of trees. If that had been viable I'd have got a tiny caravan. I can barely wriggle an old lawn tractor without deck into the place.

Not massive Phil but big enough for one man trying to get in and manage at a little over 5 1/2 acres.
