Yamaha xt125x speedo

Hey guys, I have a Yamaha xt125x but it's currently in a shop having work done and I need a new speedometer. My question is does anybody know what sort of plug is used to go from the bike into the speedo? The reason I'm asking is that the speedo currently on the bike is an after market one and broken but didn't plug into the speedo and was wired up seperately. I want to return to basic and keep it tidy, but the problem I have is that the stock speedo that comes with the bike is very faulty ...

Honda 650 Transalp

A person selling a Honda 650 Transalp  ( XL ? ) for %XA3999 on Gumtree.

From my experience of oil seal changes my instinct tells me that it`s an engine out job and the crankcases split . Surely the oil seal has pressure behind ...

Speed Triple 1050 2006 cutting out low revs??

I recently got my Speed Triple serviced and when it came back the tick over kept increasing up to 3000 revs + so I took it back to mechanic who fitted a new idle air control valve. But now it has a very low tick over below 1000 revs and keeps cutting out. mechanic then put new vacuum pipes, temp sensor, synced the throttle bodies, reset the TPS, reset the adaptives, reset idle air control valve, changed map back to original map & sensor. Still no improvement and I cannot use the bike...Help anyone??

WK SP125N worth buying as a first 125?

As I heard chinese bikes have bad reputation, poor quality, doesn't last long... Has anyone got one of those? What's your opinion? Apparently it's 2014 version.. Prices are around %XA32300-2500. Is it really worth buying?

Alloy cleaner

Is there a product out there for cleaning the engine cases and drive shaft on my old K100RS...? There wasn't anything when I used boxer twins as a courier in the 70s and 80s...should I just be happy that the cases are now the same colour as my hair....or has some whizz-bang product surfaced during my 20yr absence from bikes.....?

MT07 sold what

So I took a fellow forums members advise and decided to go for a mt07 as my first 'big bike'. I went down to my nearest yamaha dealer today to only find out there's a waiting list until around November. Does anyone have any alternative bikes I should consider or do you think it's best I wait until the end of the year?
