balancing

  1. Africa Twin
    I've Had my Rdo7 coming on 3 years and have never touched it as runs like a swiss watch, The fuelling is nigh on perfect I would say for carbs. But is it possible to get an absolute linear tick over or am I being too anal as it is very slightly uneven?

    Paul S diagnosed my lumpy running as out of balance carbs at The Yonderman on Sunday Anyone know what size adapters I need to buy to use my vacuum gauges? These are the ones you screw in to connect the vacuum tubes Last ones i bought were for my ZX7R and were 6mm thread and called spigots IIRC...
  4. Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    Do you get the wheels balanced an Africa Twins or do you just fit the tyres? I've noticed on the bike I've bought both the front and rear wheels have been balanced. The rear has "lost" its balance weights and the front is still ok. I want some new tyres. If they dont need balancing then I will...

  8. Africa Twin
    Hey, just thought I would throw this in here (I ride a 1999 rd7a). Noticed in the last while that the bike was not as smooth as I remember her being, so I checked the carbs. Turns out the jets were not set the same, so fixed that (went for the standard 2 3/8 out setting). Then she ran really...

  12. Mechanical Advice
    I have just balanced my carbs on my 950 Adventure with one of these, it was one of the easiest jobs I’ve done on the bike, I couldn’t believe how far out of balance the carbs had become, the gauge is very easy to read and the job took about 4 minutes, this will be something I will be...

    This is pretty much a call out to Stumpyfingers, I cant as otherwise get in contact with, after going to the workshop weekend it was concluded that I need to complete a carbi balance or synchronisation as my bike is running to rich on air or fuel, this will help me eliminate problems im having...
  14. Africa Twin
    Hi! I am going to fit new tyres myself, i don't have a wheel balancing machine. Are there any problems with unbalanced wheels?? I know the @t is no racer but i can imagine there will be some vibration when riding at 170 km/h, anyone experienced this? I read in another thread that it will do...
  15. Africa Twin
    Ok I just put on a rear Metzler Sahara and there was no light spot indicator. And as bad luck would have it, it was way out of balance. Since there wasn't any weights on my wheels before and there wasn't any indication of out of balance, and since I don't go real fast on the AT, is it necessary...
