  5. New TA owner from Malta

    Morning all, I came across a 1987 XL600V "Rally Touring" last week and - after reading some advice on here - now she's mine :dance: I had a Hornet previously which I found a bit manic and have been trying all different bikes but none felt right - too high, too low, arms too stretched, back...
  6. Electrical Gremlin RD07

    Africa Twin
    So, yesterday I went to start the bike and it acted as if my battery was low, and the bike started hard and slow. After work, I started the bike and same thing. Interestingly as I increased the RPM rather that the lights getting brighter, they got dimmer. I thought, oh great, the bikes not...
  7. Super lightweight luggage carrier for dirt bikes

    Pretty amazing and the more I look at this kit, the more it makes sense for a super lightweight option on a enduro type machine or those not wanting 2cwt of steel and ally luggage rack!. Home — Green Chile Adventure Gear

  10. Front fork covers/mudguard installation

    Africa Twin
    Can anyone confirm or post up a pic of the correct order the mudguard, fork brace and fork covers are bolted onto the rear lower fork? Mine has been in so many pieces for so long I've forgotten. Also a pic of the front and rear bolts would be amazing as I have ordered new ones, but an...
  11. Project Binky; strangely compelling.

    Don't know whether anyone has seen this series of youtube videos yet, but I'm hooked. It's nothing to do with bikes, and I've no particular interest in the car they're working on, but the work they do with limited tools is astounding. They call it, 'Two blokes c*cking about', but the quality...

    Hey All, Just a shout out to the amazing crew at Rugged roads. They truly are an amazing support to those of us who live on the outer edges of the world with our Africa Twins. Getting parts here in Uganda is impossible but Jonathan and his team always come through. I can't thank them enough...
  15. Bargain of a lifetime?

    Dominator / FMX
    I have found a 1985 Honda XR 250 R and I need a bit of advice from you chaps on whether I should buy it.. The owner claims he only did 3750 km on the bike back in 1985 and he blew the head on it. He has had the head stripped off ,skimmed valve seats replaced and new valves put in. I have read...

  17. 2012 Transalp for sale - amazing price, low miles.

    After just a few weeks of owning it I've decided I just can't get used to the riding position (pegs too high, bars too far away) and I'm going back to my TA 600 or possibly something smaller. I paid £5,500 at a dealer for this bike just 3 weeks ago. I'm selling it for £3,999. Yes, thats a...
  18. Since Rob passed away ..........

    I have thought a lot since Rob passed away and feel it has affected all of us in many different ways, the ride to the funeral was for me was the feeling of unbelievable pride in being a part of this amazing group of people and such an honour that Catherine made us such a big part of Rob's...
  19. Sprockets, which way around

    Africa Twin
    May sound like a stupid question but i once bought a bike with the front sprocket the wrong way around and i found out when chain snapped at 80 on a motorway a week after buying it. Anyway I bought a JT rear sprocket and an original front sprocket. The rear sprocket pretty much looks the same...
  20. amazing backfire on decelleration

    Africa Twin
    Are there any thoughts on why my bike produces a vicious backfire on deceleration. It,s not a regular thing but when it happens it really is loud .I,m worried that someday someone might shoot back.Is there a possibility of the timing being slightly out .Any wisdom would be appreciated. Thank...
