  1. Probably. Google is your friend
  2. Anything can be made to fit if you've got the skills yourself or deep pockets. As for an off-the-shelf aftermarket item I doubt it - the only time you'd see something like that is if an engine was commonly used in racing or the original unit was known to fail often.
  3. It means you're due a service
  4. Yep mega cheap on Amazon I got one a while back to check for sticking brakes on my car. Useful for all sorts!

    First time out!

    I've been doing volunteer delivery runs and commuting the last few weeks. Soooo nice to get out!
  6. I had a helmet cam that doubled up as a dash cam when you applied charging voltage, but you had to activate that function in the settings. Maybe yours is set to manual start only? Have you tested that there is 12v actually going to the camera?
  7. Welcome to the site. Plenty of RD fans on here so get posting in the workshop
  8. Maybe you could fit a diesel night heater like they have in motorhomes?
  9. Nice John I like those RD400's
  10. What ratio do you mix it to? I'd guess that may actually be the issue. Yamaha spent god knows how much money developing an auto pump system to deliver the right amount of oil at all rpm's so why not use it? As for the rattling noise, the only way to find out is to strip and inspect the top end for a start.
  11. No idea on what other calipers may fit. It would be with cross referencing parts numbers on Fowlersparts.co.uk Is the bleed nipple still in the caliper at the minute?
  12. Sounds like the starter relay to me. You can try bridging the contacts with a screwdriver and see if it turns over and starts. Welcome to the forum!
  13. I dropped a tooth off the front sprocket on my DT. Pulls much nicer now, especially on those pesky hills. I think cynic is trying to say that someone may have already changed the gearing from stock. For the cost of a front sprocket, it's definitely worth a try. 1 tooth on the front is probably equivalent to 4 or 5 on the rear. You can use https://www.gearingcommander.com/ to calculate your ratios if you like.
  14. Best wishes to all. I'm glad that some companies are slowly seeing sense and laying people off. My dad's still working, the place he works at have basically classed everyone as a key worker because they supply the odd land rover part to the NHS, police and MoD. Just an excuse to stay open basically. Anyone who self isolates has been told they'll get SSP. I've nearly ran out of jobs around the house now, so I'll be slowly going stir crazy from here on in. I have registered on the GoodSAM app though, at least I can do my bit helping some less fortunate people out.
  15. Been a load parked up at the services near me for a while. I'd still be at work if the top knobs had their way I think.
  16. I know it's a horrible thing to say but the human race in general needs thinning out a bit. You can do all you like to protect the environment but the truth is there's just too many of us. Nature will kick back eventually. I'm off work now for 3 weeks, got plenty to get on with. The Mrs is working from home
  17. For the foreseeable it is mate. How are things looking up your way?
  18. Silencer won't make really difference performance wise. Maybe a tiny difference in sound. On a 2 stroke the expansion pipe is where all the magic happens. You also get a lot of sound from them as the stock ones are double layered whereas the aftermarket ones are thin sheet. You get a nice performance boost and save some weight too. Just be aware the chrome finish on DEP pipes takes some real looking after especially if you ride in all weathers
  19. Let's get some dates sorted then! I'm happy to do 2 meets also
  20. I'd like to do kielder. Some mega roads around there I hear
  21. I think the light is fed off a relay that the switch pulls in. Could be wrong, purely going off the top of my head lol
  22. Yeah you'll need to rejet for open pipes
