I have recently drained the tank and quite a ...

Faulty gearbox CG125

Evening all!Bought a Hongdou 125 (Honda CG125 clone) as a non runner to rebuild get back on the road after 22 years off it.  Gearbox has a problem in that you can only select 1st, Neutral or 2nd but if you turn the engine using the crankshaft bolt then you can go all the way through the gears, but on the next turn of crankshaft it can only select 1st,N,2nd again. Any ideas? I'm in an IVA so sadly I couldn't buy a brand new CBR125R like my niece so stuck with this for the moment! Tim

BMW R1200RT, it's only a colour after all !

Hi All,After weighing up the options, I've finally decided to make a change from my triumph speed triple and move towards a touring bike. Ive tried a few and have settled on the BMW R1200RT but I'm having a problem sourcing one with the right spec, age, miles and price.After some searching Ive found exactly what i want, but not the colour I was after. I was looking for blue and its sand biege. I cant make my mind up whether to bite the bullet and buy it or hold off and keep looking.It's not the worst colour in the world, but ...

Triumph ST 1050 Problem

My Triumph is reluctant to start, then does not run sweetly for first minute or two, then's fine.  New battery 2 months ago, kept on "smart" charger spins the engine well.  Several good doses of injector cleaner and new plugs have made no difference.  Any suggestions?

Another good trip round Spain.

Just rode down to the Costa from Santander. 40 days on the bike. Found some great roads on the way through. Anyone contemplating Spain for a holiday, the choice of places to stay are plenty, many with garage/safe parking. Anyone wants to compare notes or ask for a bit of info, get in touch.

what does 6k get ya...

Ok, if you had %XA36-6.5k to spend on a sportsbike what would it be?  Changing the ZX10R (C2H) in for something else, looking at the options of buying used.

Losing power and lots of oil coming out of the airbox

Hi everyone, my bike , GasGas Fse 450 has a problem and no one (even mechanics) know what could be. It's losing power and the engine oil is going out through the air filter. I've change the oil and have put the measure that the brand recommends 1200 ml and a new oil filter, i've clean everything and the oil is always comming out and the bike its clearely losing power.I don't see relevant quantity of smoke, just a litlle little bit when push hard the engine. Anyone with opinion? Sorry language mistakes.Regards
