AUTO & MOTO ARTISANS - AUSTRALIA

 

Clear your tubes!

The XR600R ‘carb issues’ page has been updated following an inquiry from a guy in Guatemala. Despite really lean jetting his bike was still running rich and showing carbon deposits on the exhaust. After running through the usual suspects (bad rings, float bowl level, stuck float valve), it struck me it could be an atomisation problem and there was an outside chance it was something simple like a blocked breather tube. 


 

A big day out

Gave The Camel XR600R a bit of an airing yesterday – ended up covering almost 600km and taking in some of Tasmania’s best roads and scenery. 


 

Prototypes and packaging

Alongside components that “can’t be repaired” one of my pet peeves is parts you can’t reach without disassembling half the vehicle. 


 

Tracker takes a turn

Animism aside, it strikes me that custom bikes like to build themselves. You start off with an idea of what you want, and as the build evolves the bike nudges you towards the form it really wants to take.
