I have a d14 which was renovated a couple of years ago.Hiwever it has some issues I want to resolve. Bottoms out front and back, especially back. Even though I put new shocks on. Doesn’t like full revs,backs off if open throttle fully, especially up hills. Had a bigger jet put in carb but still not right. I have never ridden a bantam so gave no gauge, hence why I’d like someone experienced with them to take a look and possibly ride it to tell me what’s what.

Anyone in or near Notts available to take a look?

Thanks TheHof

Hi Bryn and  welcome to the Forum. I'm sure someone will be able to give you a hand. It's always a good idea to doa small intro in the Introduce Yourself section (experience/bikes) so other users have an idea how to respond.

You will find just about everything you could ever want on the Forum via the FAQs and technical sections;  ** Please log in to view **

Have a really good nose around the forum and enjoy yourself. Looking forward to seeing your progress.

Good Luck!

All the best,

Stewart

Hi Bryn,

We have a natter night at The Nags Head, Sawley on Tuesday 29th June ( more details on the Area Reps Derbyshire / Notts section ) and you could bring your bike in the van and get the views of the guys attending the natter night.
