  1. Best supplier for good spares.

    Evening all, recently joined the forum after buying myself a ‘93 Transalp. It needs very little doing to it but I’d like to plan some repairs and basics. So, been asked before no doubt, but what’s the best source for buying spares and consumable, cables, electric parts, bearings etc. First off...
  2. Sticky Throttle Cables

    Hi all, New to the forum so go easy on me... Just after some advice. I'm attempting to put some oil on my throttle cables but the cables are super tight and I'm struggling to release them. What am i missing? I have a 700. Cheers
  3. extra long throttle cable

    Africa Twin
    I have 25mm handlebar risers on my @ and have just fitted starbars. Thing is, the bars are a tad longer than standard bars and on full lock the engine revs due to the length of the throttle cables not being enough. I like the new bars and also like the risers, so is there a longer throttle cable...
  4. Starting issues

    Africa Twin
    My RD07A have started to behave strange when it is cold. It starts with full choke but dies after a while. I can start it again but slowly dies. If I add throttle it dies at once. When the engine gets warm there is no problem only when cold. It can take 15 min struggling wit hstart gas and...
  5. RD07 Handlebar risers

    Africa Twin
    Hi! I know there is a thread somewhere but i couldn't find it. Which is the maximum height of risers one can add without changing all the cables? And can someone recommend me some? Thanks in advance
  6. Very strange behaviour..

    Africa Twin
    This is a strange one... When I start the bike on the side stand and use choke the bike idols around 1200rpm, BUT if i lean the Bike over untill it’s level then the revs climb to 2500-3000rpm. This only happens with the choke on. when I’m moving the bike on or off the side stand the handle...
  7. question about the SWmotech crashbars.

    How much of the bike did you have to disassemble to mount the 2 parts (one on each side of the bike) shown in the picture here? I took all the plastic of the bike but did not have any room to mount the due to a lot of cables and what I think is the engine cooler (don't know I its correct in...

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, Has anybody fitted the "HeavyDuties" 60mm bar risers with Renthal FatBars ? I have HEL brake lines so they should be fine but what about speedo, clutch & throttle cables ? Bike is an RD03 and front end is stock apart from the brake lines. Traveling The World Two Up on a 1989...

  12. installing led lights on @ rd07 -97

    How to.....
    Hello. Trying to install led lights. I've tried with a few different led relays. The closest I get is to have one side working as it should and other side makes hazard lights. Same effect on all relays but blink speed varies. I can switch the cables to make both left and right function so its...

  14. Throttle sticking at the carbs

    94 Transalp. Been stood a while and prepping her for winter abuse. Thought it was cables so popped throttle off but even with the cables loose it still stuck on full - after a tug on the return it snaps back. I've oiled the cables plenty - there was oil drippping out at the carb end so it got...

  18. Sorted, cheers for advice

    Africa Twin
    I posted a few days back about seized chokes and starting my RD04 with easy start. Started no problem, got it to work, stripped off the tank and panels and as I fiddled about the chokes freed; typical, but I took them to bits, fitted new cables and everyting is hunky dory, a typical AT job, faff...
  19. Throttle wont 'snap' back after new grips - HELP !

    Oh lordy, why did I even bother...... Fitted the heated grips, and used hairspray as glue as usual, all good. Came back to garage after a couple of hours, noticed the throttle grip had not set (other side great), So, pulled grip off only to find the throttle 'sheath' now wont snap back! It...
  20. Slinky Cables

    Product Reviews
    Heads up regarding Slinky Cables currently being touted by Wemoto. I bought a replacement throttle cable (pull) for my XL600R. It's 50mm too short compared to the standard Honda item which is now out of stock. I don't know if all these cables come up short or even if this is a one off but do...
