KTM 640 LC4 supermoto oil leak

My 640 SM has an oil leak up high. I wasn't absolutely certain where it was coming from but suspected it might be from the cam box as apparently they are known for this on the left hand side of the engine, although my leak was on the right I thought I'd give it a try.It didn't fix the leak, although I'm not too bothered as I now know that my cam box is resealed with good quality Elring engine sealer it should see it through for a good while. That, and also that I had to sort the carb ...

Hi all... I have a 1996 VN1500 Classic  My clutch after riding for about an hour or more with plenty of clutch use will develop a loose lever/play before any pressure.. If I park up for half hour or more it will return to normal, leading me to believe it is heat related, possibly the disc clutch spring softening under heat and not doing its job ? anyone had this problem..

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 ...

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??
