Re: CRF 250L Battery

Lets take a step back here--Li Ion batts are meant to be a direct replacement for the "normal AGM " batts on a bike--so the bike charging system does not change--simply that the Li-Ion batts need a higher charging voltage and also pump out a higher voltage--but not beyond acceptable limits...

Re: The Plight of the Bumblebee

It looks ok--but what use is it??--Starbucks is the limit--NOT like the original (which I had)---it was an ok bike but mine shed all its hardy spicer needles out of the front of the driveshaft--basic design fault with too much angle on the joint. If you look at Dakar entries then they tilted the who...

Re: Auction

NOT gone under--simply had enough of BMW corporate after 35 years, slowing down, going back to roots, and selling Royal Enfield. I've known Dave and Wally C for about 30 years or so and done tours with Dave. http://www.britishdealernews.co.uk/gene ... al-enfield

Re: Britain looking to start the next chapter

I'm glad all the rhetoric is fizzling out a bit and , of whichever persuasion, we have to move on and, dare I say it, try and be positive. On that note its not even 2 months since we actually left so lots of stones are being turned over and the government are realising that there are a lot of pissed...

Re: Aftermarket LED and HIDs now not allowed?

Got the 7x5 projector and tried it--really bright with a great cut off--BUT my Alp is at the design change point where they revised the front headlamp style slightly, and the instruments--so its not a straightforward fit--a challenge for a warmer day. However, if anyone needs the classic rectangular...

Re: possible a2 changes to cc

They are proposing 250 cc rather than 395 cc which have to be detuned to meet the 35 kW MAX requirement--so basically a full fat 250 cc should be fine--makes sense to me?--the rules were out of date with modern power outputs and resulted in restricting washers etc having to be fitted. The rules stat...

Re: Aftermarket LED and HIDs now not allowed?

Just changed my really good LED bulb(great cut off etc) back to a dull 55/60 H4 based on the recent rule change--but what a PITA on my 600 Transalp--not a job for a dark, cold night---- plastic bits off with small screws and you need to have small hands and be a practised brain surgeon used to worki...

Re: Van Wanted!

My 1998 Fiat Scudo with NA 1.9 Pug diesel has just passed another MOT and has 204,000 on the clock. Fiat galvanised a lot of the lower panels so virtually no rust. Mine is also an ex wheelchair ambulance designed to seat 4 and carry two wheelchairs with a fold down ramp at the back. You can actually...

Re: 2022 KLR 650

I did a little bit of research on weights--always contentious as you HAVE to know what they are quoting--wet or dry--and as I said right at the start of this thread! Now a 2009 KLR650 (accepting that its not the current offering , but little has changed) is 176 kg DRY and 196 kg WET--so I reckon the...
