  1. What have you accidently broken

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi guys, When I changed my front brakes a while back I think I put the speedo drive back together wrong and broke the plastic cog part. Friday when jacking the bike up to take the back wheel off I smashed the left mirror as I jacked the bike into the wall of my house:rolleyes: Just wondering...
  2. TA 700 Not Starting

    Transalp
    I spent this afternoon re-routing one of the breather hoses from the underside of the tank which needed doing courtesy of recent 8000 service at Dobles (yes, I know, 1st mistake etc....). Having removed the fairing sides, raised the tank, I re-routed the hose then started the bike momentarily...

    Recommended Dealers/Service Providers/Campsites
    Hi Gang, I have just received in the mail today my brand new Rev'It Sand Jacket and Pants, and must I say that they are great. The quality is superb, the fit is excellent, and the features are fantastic. I cannot recommend Rev'It gear highly enough. Having owned previously BMW gear, I can...

  6. Maverick's Ride Slow See More tour 2008

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    The last thing possible in my mind was to actually visit South-Africa this year and to top it off also get the old R80GS aptly named Die Walvis (The Whale) in Namibia last year due to it's uncanny ability to drop in the sand and lay there like a big beached whale. Allow me to illustrate To...

  9. Power Socket

    Mechanical Advice
    I'm fitting a power socket as per the wiki guide using a relay, however I want the option of the socket being powered when the ignition is off. Am I correct in thinking that all I need to do is run a second wire to the socket but have it connected to pin 87A on the relay? I will have a hidden...

  12. Strange "cut-out" behaviour ...

    Africa Twin
    Personally it sounds like a problem with the coil. I don't know if the AT's have inheritent coil problems but the last time I hade similar probs it was always wet and the bike would cut out and then start when the coil dried out. This coil was the ceramic type with a hair line crack in it. Took...
