  1. Gearchange activating mainbeam??

    Transalp
    As the title, when I'm driving with a dipped headlamp sometimes this will switch to mainbeam when I change gear. This will only last for a second and reverts back to dipped once the gearchange is completed. It does not happen with every gearchange and can occur in any gear moving up or down the...
  2. Electrical Question, RD07a

    Africa Twin
    Hi All, Just installed flush mounted indicators, having removed the floppy originals. New bulbs are 3w each, so 6w per side. When activating switch, the relay buzzes for a few seconds before 'catching up' and then indicators work fine. Was wondering if the relay is ohm or watt sensitive and I...

    Varadero

With your permission I'd like to use this thread to detail the slow and potentially painful process of managing to make a (half) decent off roader of the mighty Varadero, and how it, and I, fare on this journey of discovery...

  6. Autocoms' best kept secret!

    Bike Comms & Audio
    We have always had a problem with the Autocom (300 duo), the vox needs to be set high (noisy helmet & noisy screen?), to avoid the wind noise activating it, but this needs shouting to activate at slower speeds, cutting conversations short..... After a quick call to the Autocom customer...
  7. Technology.......

    Mechanical Advice
    Right, bit of a pull it all together thread. I've just installed an Autocom 200 (300's were out of stock and I hate waiting for stuff), and am about to buy a Garmin Zumo. So, the autocom is fine, (apart from the wind noise inside my Arai TX activating the vox and turning the music down all the...

    Africa Twin
    On returning from our week trip my AT were behaving strangely. First sign was that the bike would not start ( Flat battery?) After some 200 km riding high beam headlight bulb blew. Then when riding with my lights on the bike would start to shudder as if it does not get enough current to the...
  13. Alarm!

    Transalp
    I have a Meta alarm system fitted to the old nail,which for a variety of reasons I'd rather do without, but it came with the bike when I bought it. Pressing the fob buttton refuses to de-activate the alarm on the bike, only de-activating and obtaining the beep after 10 minutes or so of...
  14. Which Alarm?

    Chatter
    I heard a number of alarms activating at the weekend, and I'm curious as to what people have fitted and why they've gone with a certain make/model. Seems sensible to fit one to my pride and joy, but I hear a lot of people bitching about problems they have with them.
