    Lets fix this Bullet

    great advice on the headlight, that 5" thing is crap. I do find that I enjoy riding around on the Bullet more than I anticipated. I haven't turned a wheel on my R100/7 in a month or more.

    LOS GATOS • CALIFORNIA

    mine was Silver. It holed a piston on PCH 1, the Kawasaki dealer in Monterey had a piston in stock. The bike was 20 years old at the time.

    LOS GATOS • CALIFORNIA

    Wonderful country and very cool bike. I bought a Kawasaki bighorn 350 dual sport in Los Gatos when I was stationed at Fort Ord, CA. I loved central Cal then, not sure I could afford it now. I heard the Fort is gone because the Millionaires all around it didn't like the noise and trouble that...

    Hard situation

    Ive been told, that unless you are working on a solution, don't just complain about the problem, or something to that effect. On this issue, I'm at a loss, I see overly aggressive drivers here in Charleston SC that tailgate, pass on the right, cross yellow lines, basically drive their cars like...

    Dealership Concerns-Does Enfield USA care at all????

    Fellas. I apologize for turning this into a whole thing. in the 80s I owned/operated a small independent English/Europrean Motorcycle shop, our focus was Guzzi-Norton-BSA because for some reason New Orleans was awash in these, thanks to some very good local dealers in the 60s and 70s. We...

    Dealership Concerns-Does Enfield USA care at all????

    I understand completely, my point is, if you trade on your historical achievements, acknowledging that pedigree is expected, Otherwise they should advertise "Royal Enfield, since 2015" . I own an 89 VW Transporter truck, if I roll up into my local VW/Porsche dealer , they can't help me with...

    First Enfield, Project in Charleston, Wish me Luck

    I need to not be so cranky. I also need to not be so judge on the Hipsters, who am I to say what's in style. Maybe I need to not turn into my Dad.

    First Enfield, Project in Charleston, Wish me Luck

    We used to live in King George VA. Funny I just went on a rant about North Ridge Triumph Royal Enfield today. I went to the new location to buy an oil filter and o rings from my local dealer rather than go straight to the internet. After terrible customer service from the scraggly beard man bun...

    Lets fix this Bullet

    I have always liked the Dunstall megaphones and used to run them on everything, might just try that. what do you mean electrode recessed? The consensus is NGK BPR6ES, but I figure a 8 or even 9 heat range would be ok here in hot as hell South Carolina.

    Ive separated the car as it requires major rust repairs. I'm toying with high pipe and high fenders for the scrambler vibe

    Dealership Concerns-Does Enfield USA care at all????

    oh its OK, I was just so taken aback by the attitude. If you want me to buy a brand new bike, make me enjoy the old one. Show me that I can count on a dealer for support, so I feel good about my next purchase from him. The INT650 has my eye as well as a couple friends with Himalayans have been...

    Dealership Concerns-Does Enfield USA care at all????

    I don't need them to do any actual work, but I should be able to get oil filters, clutch cables and normal wear items for most models at a dealership. It was the flat refusal to assist me. I would have been ok with them being the victim,...i.e. Royal Enfield has been horrible about parts for the...

    Dealership Concerns-Does Enfield USA care at all????

    Gentlemen, I recently picked up my first RE this week, a 2011 Bullet G5 DeLuxe 500. It had been severely neglected (see my thread under Bullet) but now that I got her to run good I thought, huh , I should support my brick and mortar , local dealer, rather than just order my parts on the...

    Lets fix this Bullet

    very anti-climatic, new battery, fresh gas, hit the button, and she started right up and settled down to a steady idle. I did film it but why post such a boring 10 second clip. Now that I have achieved smooth running (for a single) , I can concentrate on cleaning and trying to save some of the...

    First Enfield, Project in Charleston, Wish me Luck

    Sorry, South Carolina. I grew up in New Orleans and nobody ever asked me about what state. Yes Charleston SC, but Ive been to WV and it was a nice part of the country.

    First Enfield, Project in Charleston, Wish me Luck

    Im with you, I wasn't looking for an Airhead, but I've been watching the prices go up and up as the Hipsters who are pissed off they missed the 70s try and buy up everything and relive something that was never theirs. Sorry,....most of the time in small doses I like the interest in my teenage...

    Lets fix this Bullet

    Today was not so bad. After some individual prodding with the power probe I was finally able to get the starter to spin free and fast, the fuel pump to pump , and the coil to spark. I could not get them to function as part of the greater bullet wiring harness. Since all systems were down, I...

    Lets fix this Bullet

    Well....purchased new in 2011, 6 thousand trouble free miles put on the rig in the Jacksonville FL area until medical issues parked the G5 Bullet in 2017. Fast forward to last Monday and I purchased said project and dragged her home to Charleston SC. Come with me as we rehab this old Bullet and...
