@  Boot : (08 May 2019 - 08:08 PM) Tricki, Im guessing the new headlight uses a much lower wattage than the original?
@  Tricki : (30 April 2019 - 11:29 AM) Installed a LED headlight from Higsider, and now got instrument flickering, needles going all over the place and the like. Anyone else experienced this?

@  hondaCZ : (10 April 2019 - 06:41 PM) I just replaced broken speedometer with another one and the speed real is lower than it shows. Can speedo be calibrated on XJR 1300 , year 2001? I can´t find it anywhere..

@  wreckless : (08 February 2019 - 06:43 PM) just getting used to this site. have an original xjr 1300, 03 plate, black, with the nice paint job. I love it, but not had a big bike before, so still,l a bit nervous of it, but will definitely keep it, 32,000 on the clock, looks lovely. light as a feather when you ride it, but quite heavy, so i find hill starts and right hand turns hard. pleased to join this forum.

@  bikerlen : (11 January 2019 - 08:13 AM) All I want is some help withe the wiring. When I got my bike some twat had cut the alrm out. All I want know is How do I sort. I've been a motorcycle mechanic for 34 years but cant get my head around all the frigging black wires. If I cant sort I'm going smash the thing to peices.

Hello fellow XJR chums!

Ive bought this lovely 2002 model from a friend who has lost the biking buzz (although he's had it from new and done 8,000 miles so it was a pretty low buzz to begin with :-)

The Ohlins have been restored and its a super smooth ride but in common with others I find the reluctance to tip in to corners less than great. Ive read the posts on front fork changes but its unfortunately still a mystery to me so I have a photo attached of the forks as they are now. Please could someone advise if perhaps getting the blue rings in the middle up or down one or two would help (I did say its a mystery J)

Any advice greatly appreciated - I plan to use this bike over weekends in the summer whilst I use my Trophy SE for work and I love peg scraping!

Thank you very much

Richard
Brighton

Google Setting fork sag, or something like that Pal. Turning the blue preload adjuster in will stiffen the front, out will soften it. As a general rule of thumb you want the front and back to compress the same amount, about 20mm. But I'd check your tyre pressures before anything, is it wanting to stand up in corners? I run 42psi in the rear and 36psi in the front.
I'm Only 4fut3 But I Look A Lot Bigger From A Distance?
