  3. handlebars

    Been trawling through Ebay using the Ebay search link on this site, and came across some clip on handlebars. Now to me this would be plain silly, I can't ever imagine anyone would want to fit them to an adventure style bike ( but who knows?). It got me thinking though, has anyone changed the...
  4. Which center stand is this?

    Africa Twin
    After rebuilding my RD03, I nearly forgot that I had repainted this center stand until the other day I stumbled across it sitting in a corner.

  10. varadero ride height, lowering links fitted?

    My new (to me) 2004 varadero feels quite a bit lower than the 2006 vara I had a few years ago, I wonder if it has been fitted with lowering links. The preload has been set to much the same setting-fairly soft. The parts lists indicate the 2004 to 2010 UK models all have the same link part...
