    Hello all, recently my bike has not been its self. When you wind the throttle on it just doesn't set away and splutters and coughs a bit before actually picking up and accelerating. And once riding at speed you can tell its not right, feels like your battling a head wind with the back brake on...

    Hi, I have a 2004 Twin Spark, and the clock and tripmeter have started to reset every time I switch on the ignition, as well as the re-indexing noise of the speedo and rev counter. I've traced this to a missing permanent feed on the red/white wire to the dash. I'm wondering if anyone has any...

    My 01' ST has develloped a strange electric fault, she runs normally, as long as there is a load on the electrical system, ie : lights on. If all load is removed, she missfires about 50% (one every other "bang") If I tun a headlight on, she runs great, same when the cooling fand comes one, or if...

    Over the past few days I've been riding back from Slough to Stockwell of an evening, and the coolant temperature light has come on! Perhaps I need to add some more ethylene glycol, but last night it was pointed out by a helpful man on a TDM that my rear light has gone, although the brakes were...

    My hazzard warning lights seems to have developed a fault. When switched 'On', only the left side indicators flash. By switching the indicator switch to 'Right' then both sides flash. :think: I have not looked into this yet, but wonder before I start if anyone knows of this and can save me...

    In need of help. My F650 Dakar runs for about 2 miles through the city, then the rev counter jumps abot 3000 revs, but not the engine and then conks out. You can sometimes restart the bike but it will run rough at tick over . If you rev it it will conk out. If I leave it for about 20 minutes it...

    :think: Hmmm. Just been out on my bike and all was well. Parked it up in a bike bay in grey Kingston town (which also has a nice new extra bike bay). Came back to it - started and straight away cut out. Started it again and kept the revs up. All was well. Got to a junction and it cut out...

    The trip meter on my Scarver has developed a fault. Every tmie I switch ignition off then back on, the trip meter 'resets' itself to 50.5 miles. :wall: It continues to count from there, I can reset it to zero, but whever the ignition is switched off then back on, it's back at 50.5. Why is...
