I quite like the Triumph Street ...

CTR125 will not run off choke on tick over missfires

Just bought a 2002 Honda CTR125, believe it has the same engine as an XR125, it starts fine on choke but when you try to turn the choke off is will not tick over and when revved it pops and miss fires, tried adjusting the mixture screw but it doesn't help, it seems to run the best with it screwed fully in as when you turn it out it gets worse, anyone had this problem and knows what the possible cause could be ?

Transmission Problem XF650

I've recently bought a '99 Suzuki XF650 Freewind, and I'm worried about its clutch/transmission. When i'm crusing in 2nd and i want to slow down and put it into first, i sometimes hear a grinding sound, and it doesnt go into first easily or at all, it gets stuck in neutral. A bypass I've found is double clutching it, once clutch into neutral and once more into first.

Tyre choice for older bike

Hi, currently restoring a 1985 Kawasaki GPZ400R.  Like many other things, it's tyres were shot & someone had had a go at carving them up. Given old bike/newer tyre technology debate, what tyres would you recommend for general leisure riding/UK touring on this bike? Thanks

Bandit600 power delivery

Hello, all being well I pass my mod2 on Friday and pick up a bandit600.Ive trained on an ER6 which is torquey.  I guess the bandit600 is much miore rev happy and needs to be revved harder.  Please give me an insight so I can jump on and head off with a little experienced voice in the back of my mind telling me what to expect.Appreciate it.  Fingers crossed for Friday!  Shoulder check.  Cheers, Glenn.  Shoulder check.

Help a newbie?

Afternoon ladies and gentlemen,looking at my first bike and appear to have found quite a good example of a 2005 SV650 for <2k. I've done all the usual, tyres look good, service history present, asked questions about battery and how it's running (been in storage).Is there anything in particular that might have slipped my mind, or that something in particular those with a bit more knowledge might point out? It's not the most money in the world, but i've saved my pennies and i'm intending to have this bike for quite a while, so i'd appreciate any tips or hints?cheers
