    Hi chaps :) Well I have been fiddling with the routing of the throttle cable on my 2000 GS and I still canoot get it so that I can adjust it up properly and NOT have the engine ramp up when I turn hard left :( I have tried several different routings but the same problem exists, it seems the...

    I've just come back from a great 3 day trip to the Nurburgring, the Eifel region and the Ardenne. The bike performed faultlessly, but with one strange occurence. I noticed the clutch slipping one day, but the engine was hot and I thought, well its done 25k miles, maybe it is time for a new...

    Hi, Hope someone can help.I have searched the forum but still non the wiser. Tried to reset the trip counter and it is freely turning. Took off screen and the cable end has come free from where it is screwed into. Question is where does it screw into. There are a lot of wires in the and...

    Hello! The electrical cable that leads up to the ABS switch on the handlebars has snapped (looks like the tip needs to be soldered back). Is this hazardous and does it need to be looked at urgently? Or can I wait until the next trip to the garage? I never use the abs switch anyway. cheers :)

    Good morning mates. I took the ignition tubing cap out yesterday and I unscrew the small bolt from inside. When I got it out a small round piece (like a fuse) came out and then a spring. I remove that small round piece from inside (some friends told me that this is a filter for the high power)...

    Hi, Does anyone know how to change the choke cable on a 1996 funduro without removing the carbs, as they look impossible to get at! Thanks, Nick. :?

    Hi All, I have replaced my throttle cable but notice that the new cable holds the valve open (the stopper bar is about 1/2 inch or so away from the rotating cable assembly -when the throttle is totally off.) The adjuster at the handlebar is twisted in fully. I compared the old and new cables...

    Hi, I fitted a new speedo cable to my 98 650 Strada a couple of weeks ago and it's working well.... Unfortunately, my headlight is now misbehaving. I always ride with it on and since I fitted the new cable it goes on and off as i turn the front wheel. I stripped down everything around the...

    Hello, When leaving work yesterday, realised I couldn't change gears! Had a good look around the bike and it seems that the clutch cable, although still there, seems to be worn off - ready to break. Oddly enough, when the bike is switched off, I seem to have no problem changing into first or...

    The other night I managed to get home with what I eventually realised was a rapidly unravelling clutch cable. No problem, order one from Motorworks and Bob's your uncle. The cable arrived, I went to fit. No problem so far, until I could not remove the release arm which connects the engine end...

    Well finally got around to 'de restricting' my bike (thanks for the photo Trevor) sent away for bracket and managed to replace it fairly easily. However it now appears the throttle cable is too short and prevents carb from closing fully - even with throttle closed its (carb)open by about 5...

    Hi, Wondered if anyone had any experience of this. The ignition cable from the base of the barrel towards the headstock seems to have developed a worn or partially broken wire. The ignition is fine with the handlebar to the right. But moving to the centre or left contact is lost or intermittent...

    Last night after work I went for a ride, just past midnight and the roads were beutifully clear, I'd just turned at a junction and was picking up speed doing 50 - 60mph when a small deer darted out and hit the side of the bike and my leg. Thankfully the bike kept upright but the deer also hit...

    2002 F650GS: If I put the handlebars on full right lock, the throttle cable gets pulled somehow and the revs rise by approx 600 rpm. (Happens during the final half inch or so of the handlebars movement). Does the throttle cable need adjusting, or am I missing something obvious? (I've searched on...

    evening everyone just got a new choke cable from moto works but for the life of me cant work out how to fit the bloody thing :think: . seem's like the nipples on the ends are to big to go through the hole's on the handle bar control and the black plastic nut on the carb ?. anyone else had this...

    I've snapped the throttle cable barrel adjuster just at the point that it leaves the throttle housing on the handlebars. Not a big problem, but it means there's 2 - 3 mm play in the throttle, which isn't great for slow speed control. My questions are; 1. Is it possible to buy the barrel...
