  1. Africa Twin
    Hi Folks Re: Main Stand - Reattachment Of Springs & 'C' Bracket? Honda Accessory Main Stand 1997 RD07A I'd be most grateful if anyone can provide me with any pictures indicating the correct attachment points of the Main Stand Return Springs & 'C' Bracket upon the frame lug and stand itself...
  2. Buell / Harley Davidson
    Hiya, joined this forum about 6 months ago when I bought a 1987 600 Transalp. Mainly bought because the narrow country lanes where I live are frequently covered in mud, slime and cow cow sh*t, and I wanted a chance to wash this less often ; She's a 2004 Softail Standard, my 6th Harley, and...
  3. Varadero
    Hello All, I rarely post here but thought this might be useful. I ordered a PC3 for my 2003 Vara during the week, to try and get rid of the crappy low rpm fuelling. Bike would cough and splutter like a 50 a day smoker between 2-3000 rpm. Parcel turned up yesterday containing a PC5 ?? After a...

    Hi all I know this is probably a really simple thing but I have looked online and cant find a answer. I have ordered a Haynes but its bank holiday weekend so will take a while to come. im at work at have a lot of free time today and want to drop the brake lever down as I have problems getting my...
  5. Africa Twin
    Took my bike out yesterday and did 100 miles no problem. Today, it managed to do 3 miles, about long enough to warm up then developed a serious misfire on one cylinder and refusing to rev over 4000 and intermittently not firing at all. Managed to limp it home but I'm baffled and just thought I'd...
  6. Insurance
    Hi guys just asking a quick question. Im comig up to renew my insurance and im sticking with the same company just bikes because its the cheapest for me on tptf at the moment and wondered if its really worth keeping legal assistance on my policy. When I took the policy out last year the guy...
  7. Travel
    The motorways are a horrendous mess, in the process of being built, avoid; diversions everywhere. Satnav was baffled as well, the trip out was not much fun. BUT there is an alternative, going out of town get the N611 followed by the N634. Straight out of the city in a few km onto lovely bendy...
  8. XR
    Hi, looking one which isn't too loud, preferably baffled. Either for sale or a suplier. Thanks.
  9. Africa Twin
    Hi Guys, I have had some issues with my RD07A for a while. I am following the manual to test all the components and on the throttle position sensor I am a bit baffled. I am setting the multimeter to Ohm K. (everything according to the manual) The manual says the following: 4 Now connect the...
  10. Yamaha
    Hello; Just saw one of these today... It sort of confused me a bit... it has hooooge tyres... a soft suspension... and an ickle engine.. is it like a "cool" learner machine . Or does it have other uses? Yamaha says the bike promises "good times"... What does that mean? Does it? Does anyone...
  11. Dominator / FMX
    Just thought I'd pen a note to say that I've returned to Dommies after too long on a KTM LC4E ('04) -not a Honda!- It's my third NX650, having previously had '96 and '99 models. My query being, does anyone know why my 2003 NX650 (believe a 2002 model?) has a righthand only steering lock?? It has...
  12. Transalp
    The rear brake pads on my TA have worn unevenly, and I mean very unevenly. The piston side is nearly worn out, the sliding side is barely worn at all. Pads have done an awful lot miles getting on for 50,000 (the first set did over 50K and still had meat on them when repalced with this set). I...

    I had no idea what to expect from the Crosstourer. But no matter what I wrote about it, I knew what I could expect from comments on xrv.org.uk: it’s not a new Africa Twin; Honda should make a new Africa Twin. Well, the Crosstourer is not the new Africa Twin. Its seat is comfortable, for a start...
  14. Chatter
    I am off on a trip abroad later this and have been strongly recommended to take a GPS with preloaded routes. A Garmin Montana 600 has been recommended. So looking around I can see them for around £300 but am getting completely baffled by pre loaded maps, mapsource, GPX files, and downloadable...

Now that the battery has been reconected and the bike seems to be running fine , the tripmaster is completly dead . It was working prior to the bike being laid up .

  19. Africa Twin
    Hi all Just fitting a standard fuel pump I picked up from wemoto and noticed that the orientation between front and back is different to the original. I've baffled myself now trying to figure it out. Which is the inlet on the pump? Is it the open one or the closed? My guess would be the open but...
