    Hi folks, I have just been for a tour around Cumbria for a few days and had a blast (once my back straightened out!) but have come back with a couple of niggles... Should the steering damper have any vertical play in it? If I grip mine and lift it it will move about 5mm up and down at both...

    My TL is currently off the road thanks to a failed damper, but before this happened, the front wheel started making a ticking/clicking noise once per revolution. There's no speedo cable on these, and the brakes seem to be fine, so I'm guessing this is the bearings on their way out?

    I just replaced the fuel filter with one located outside the tank, and now I have the bike back together it will not start, and the fuel pump is making a weird noise while it primes (it makes the usual high pitched whine, then halfway through priming it starts to make another whining noise that...

    Okay, I put a set of rear pads on my TLR last week and forgot to adjust the pedal down. I adjusted the pedal just now, but for the last couple of days, I get a whistling sound when I lightly apply the rear brakes. It's not a squealing, sounds just like someone whistling.. Which generally...

    Hi, I have only just purchased my TLR and i have a noise comming from my front brakes it's more of a clunking rather than a noise, but when i press on the lever the noise dissapears, so i was thinking loose brake pads or rattling pins, the brakes work fine but the clunking is getting on my...

    Are these enforced? I wouldn't be happy having hired a van, driven to Silverstone/Mallory/Donington then finding I can't ride cos the bikes too loud :O The TLR is as loud as any bike I've ever heard :laugh Sounds great to me, but how loud is 105db anyway? :confused

    On my new TL I need to do a couple more things. First an oil change. Is there any issue putting full synthetic in the bike? I belong to a co-op and the price difference between semi and full is negligible, so unless it'll cause issues I'd just put full in. My coolant is running low, but instead...

    I am getting a crunching sort of noise when bike is pushed along, or wheel turned on paddock stand. Seems to be from front sprocket area. Is there a bearing or anything that could be replaced without a strip down of the engine? The bike has only done approx 11k miles, but is used for drag racing.

    any one know what the maximum noise level regulation is for road bikes. after doing a bit of searchin it seems that alot of the time an mot pass/fail is down to the discretion of the tester. but i want to know what the maximum permisable level is?:O
