    Need help quick.
    What is the width of the XCx front rim?
    1.85 or 2.15? No access to my bike at the moment.
    Thanks.

    Post photos when done please Rod.

    I am being slow rebuilding my bike. I have yet to clean the muffler/ exhaust. I did find that Aldi toilet cleaner works on the encrusted W.A. mud . It has lactic acid in it.

    I'll probably get the shop to lace it up. Too lazy to do it my self and too busy chasing new fluff ha ha.
    Will post up dinged rim and new rim.

    $490 rim, spokes and John Titman Racing air freighted it so that cost got past onto me also., still a bargain.
    Will get stuck into it this weekend and take pics of old rim damage.

    Well i dusted off the fatcat the sarvo, and i mean dusted off, hasn't done anything for at least 4 months and then only a 150km ride b 4 that. Bloody thing just started straight away, was gobsmacked, let it idol for a while and then shut it off, and then the fax machine on it started and wouldn't stop, at all? With the key off? Let it go for a while, listening to the important message it must of been send and then hit the key and fired it again, no worries, except fuel gauge wasnt work ing for the first 100km.
    Back down in the Dandenong ranges tonight, a nice 300km+ ride, longest ive done on it for a couple of years, Peter Stevens in the morning and then 300km home, still running the TKC80 on the front from my trip 2 years ago, must be up aroung the 14000km mark by now.

    My TKC80 front also refuses to wear out that last bit.
    Might replace it anyway when l do the front wheel in the next weekend or 2.
    Have it run in for the No Name Rally in November.

    Sounds like a seized stepper, best to clean, lube it then zip tie to one side and replace it with a mechanical setup. I have some pics here somewhere of mine

    My home made mechanical setup is not complicated, it's basically just an adjustable throttle stop. It uses the existing stepper mounting holes. The stepper is left plugged in and zip tied out of the way so no fault code is triggered
    I made one in a bikers yard in Panama last year after continual idling issues. Never had a problem since

    It turns out I'm not smart enough to load pics, no surprises there
    Anyone able to help if I email them some pics to load?

    As you can see it is a simple fix.
    Measure the rest position of the cam before removing the stepper. This will then be used as a datum to setup the adjuster bolt
    The angle iron bracket was inverted after the pic was taken to gain the correct length
    The lock nuts and bolt can be reached when the bike is reassembled. Once the adjustment is set it idles fine at any elevation. I tested it to 5500 metres in the Andes in Chile

    The servo is connected to a WMB sensor that restricts the air box enough to make the engine stall on idle whenever it sensors double chai latte approaching.
    Once clear of double chai latte fumes it returns the airbox to normal and the bike fires up again.
    Implemented to keep BMW riders from crying in their double chai latte and ruining everyone else's day wishing they'd bought a Tiger. Grrrrrrr.
    It's a small price we pay to NOT hear you winge BD. :)
